The everyday stuff.

Grant went to a birthday party on Saturday for his friend Alexander who turned 3. Oh my gosh, that means Grant is almost 3!  If you have party ideas, let me hear 'em!

Grant took his friend a copy of Shel Silverstein's Where The Sidewalk Ends, which we love in our house. 

Grant at the party!  Can you believe I had to threaten him with leaving the party to get him to take a picture? Of course you can. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Ha!

And here's baby brother looking cute. Because he doesn't do a whole lot more than that at the moment.

Daddy is a trooper!

I've been in a VMWare training class all week long, which runs from 8:00am to 6:00pm every day.  Because the nanny doesn't get to work until 8:00am, Daddy's been having to get the kids up and dressed and ready for their day.  I won't tease him too much about his choice of dress for the kids, but let's just say that Ryan's outfit today, consists of two mismatched outfits, with a third outfit's socks being used as scratch mittens.

But you know what?  Ryan's happy and fed for the morning, so that's all that matters.  :)

Grant went to his 3rd dentist appointment on Wednesday.  Pretty soon, I'll not remember what visit it is.  He's growing up SO. FAST.  He'll be THREE in three months!  How is it possible?  HOW?

He did a wonderful job.  He was scared at first, but when they let him hold the mirror, he really felt like a big guy, and after she was finished picking his teeth (the worst part of a dental cleaning in my opinion), he said, "Again!"   And the hygienist looked at him like he was bananas and said, "Ok!"  So he got an extra good dental cleaning.  

These pics were taken after the cleaning when we were waiting on the dentist to come in, and he was enjoying some Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on the TV.

3 Months Old!

So last week, Ryan turned 3 months old!  Here are his diaper shots.  And for comparison, there's one of Grant at 3 months at the very bottom of the post!

Enough with the pictures, Mom!

Big brother at 3 months old:

More pics, please!

So, yes, we took the monthly diaper shots of Ryan yesterday, and I'll get those posted soon!  But first, I couldn't hold back on these...

We got our pictures from the hospital session back from Stephanie (Dahlias and Daisies Designs) recently, and there are a few that are absolutely beautiful.  I know that nothing else will ever remind us of our time spent in the hospital the way these images will.  I especially love the one of Grant kissing his baby brother's tiny feet.  His Nonna brought him to the hospital to meet his baby brother, and this was their first interaction.

<<heart melt>>

Ryan is 3 months old today!

In some ways it is hard to believe Ryan is already 3 months old (yet it has been a very long 13 weeks to get here).  Before we know it we'll be planning Grant's 3rd birthday party.  Andrea promises to post some pictures soon!
