Grant is one!

Grant Thomas, you are one whole year old! I cannot believe how quickly your first year passed! You are such a bright light! We love you and your little personality SO much! Here’s what you are up to at one year old!


Here’s what you are up to at one year old:

  • You are taking steps, maybe about 2-3 at a time and then you decide crawling is just easier.
  • You love to eat! You eat pretty much anything we put in front of you.
  • You weigh 24 lbs and are 30.5 inches long.
  • You wear size 3 diapers and size 12 and 18 month clothes.
  • You have six teeth.
  • You have transitioned to whole milk really well.
  • You can say a few words (dada, mama, hi, bye, Ava) but you aren’t really a talker yet.
  • You have started having little temper tanturms when you don’t get your way.
  • You don’t like going to bed anymore. You fight it and cry.
  • You love bathtime and you shriek and scream when we turn the water off.
  • You love going outside.
  • You love sitting in your anywhere chair. When Ava or Reed get out of this chair, you hightail it over there to claim your space!
  • You love ipads and especially love swiping one when someone abandons one.
  • You are still a mostly easy little baby and I love your easygoing disposition.

My sweet little Grant – what a year we have had with you! You have brought so much joy and light into our family. We love your little laughs and grins, and the cute little noises you make. We all pretty much dote on you and you are the ruler of our house for the time being. We are so grateful for you, little boy. You are learning so much right now and it’s so fun to watch that! I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for you. I’m so excited to see how you grow and change this year!

We love you, baby boy!

Hello, May!

Wow! How did it turn into May?! Crazy. We are just cousins down the days until the end of school - 17 school days left! We are also on 1st birthday countdown! This is a random all over the place post, just sharing what has been going on around here.

A couple weeks ago, I got a text from Reed's teacher showing them having Popsicles on the playground. It was a day I had sent him money to get ice cream at after school care. When I saw he had a Popsicle, I texted his teacher and told her to let him know not to get ice cream. So here's the before and after.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to pick out our dresses for my sister's wedding. Ava loved trying the dresses on and having a girls' day!

After finding dresses, we had lunch. Ava loved her milkshake. 

Grant just goes along for the ride anywhere and everywhere. 

Love this baby so much!!!

Grant fell at school last week and got his first bruise around his eye. 

Reed loves snuggling up in my lap each night. 

Friday afternoon I was at home with Reed and suddenly heard some very loud banging noises. I thought he was hitting something but it turns out we were having some golf ball size hail. Ugh. 

Unfortunately Zach wasn't at home so his truck hood got some dents. :(

Grant looked such an angel sleeping Friday night!

Saturday we headed to NWA. I went to meet the babies of my friends Dusty and Michelle. I got to snuggle two previous bundles of joy who we have prayed for for so very long!

Then we had lunch with Zach's family to celebrate his birthday!

Sunday morning after church I had some errands to run and Ava came with me. She enjoys having some alone time with none of the boys!

Later that day, Teed came in trying to put a shirt on. I can't imagine why he was having trouble. ;)

Life is NEVER dull around here!!!!!
