Best Buddies

Best Buddies! We had so many worries when we were pregnant with Grant how Jenna would do. Would she be jealous, would she revert to acting like "a baby", would she get upset and act out...

I know in the years to come they will fight like cats and dogs...but for now let me enjoy their friendship.

She loves him so much, he's the first person she asks about when she wakes up, she misses him at school (he's literally 20 feet away from her in the baby room), she is always playing with him and cuddling him. She often asks to make sure that he is going to live with us forever!

Grant loves Jenna just as much. He's constantly watching her and she can always get him to laugh and smile. He already looks up to her. She reads him books and he just sits and listens.

My two little cuties! I love them so much, we are so lucky.

Dear Grant, 8 months

Dear Grant,

8 months! You are getting to be such a big boy! Mommy and Daddy are so proud of you. You are such a happy baby and love showing off your cute smile with those two little teeth! Although, seeing these pictures I don't think you like to smile for the camera. You're too busy looking at me like I'm crazy or trying to reach the camera to put it in your mouth.

Everything goes in your mouth these days. EVERYTHING. You love eating food and are now also eating puffs and the baby rice cakes in addition to fruits and veggies. We've even put a few of our meals in the food processor for you to try. You seem to like whatever you can get in your mouth.

size 3 pampers diapers
9 month clothes
2 bottom teeth
almost crawling - scoots and rocks, but not quite there
LOVES peek-a-boo
Still doesn't like the car
Talks all the time...sounds that are just like M sounds, looks like the word Momma is a ways off
LOVES big sister Jenna!
Usually sleeping through the night

Our lives are busy and hectic, but we wouldn't change a thing, who cares if sometimes we don't eat dinner until 8pm. You and Jenna make our life so enjoyable and fun! We're lucky parents!

You weren't sure about your first time out playing in the snow. Of course, I'm sure it didn't help that you were so bundled up you couldn't move.

Grant - we love cuddling with you! Especially when you're sleepy and will snuggle right in. You always sleep for the longest times on Daddy. It's a good excuse for us to sit down and relax while we cuddle with you. You're getting so big so fast, we really try to take advantage of that time.

We love you buggy! Happy 8 months!
Love always and forever,
