Grayson loves his bouncer!!

Grayson has lately not wanted to lie down unless he falls asleep -- he just always wants to be up and active! So fun! But it's getting increasingly hard to hold onto him while standing him up on your lap -- he's SO wiggly and bouncy! And those little legs are very strong -- he could launch himself off your lap if you let him! So we got him this bouncer, and he LOVES it!!! It took him all of about 10 minutes to figure out how to make himself bounce in it (although, at first he would make it bounce by picking UP his feet! But now he's got it down the right way -- much more fun!)! It makes animal sounds and lights up when he bounces and spins some of the toys, so he figured that out quick! I think this is one of my favorite baby items now! Great toy!! :)

Weekend in Iowa

This weekend, Grayson and I drove (yes, drove! We are insane) with my parents to Sioux City, Iowa for my cousin Kip's wedding! Steve had a convention and meetings he couldn't miss, so he couldn't come -- we missed him! But Gray and I had lots of fun! We drove all day Thursday, 1/2 a day on Friday, then the wedding was Saturday (no driving). Then we drove all day Sunday and 1/2 a day on Monday!! LOTS of driving -- not so much fun! But it was worth it! Kip looked so handsome and happy with his beautiful bride Ashley!! (this pic is Kip and Ashley with Kip's nephew Cache -- so cute in his tux!)

Kip's sister Katie had a baby boy a month before I had Grayson -- his name is Keegan -- and this was the first time they met each other! They look a lot alike (But Grayson is bigger! He's such a chubber!!! He's 14 1/2 lbs now!!!!) -- a server at the reception asked if they were twins! Katie and I happened to bring the same outfit with us, so we dressed them up like twins and took pictures! They were so cute -- they were smiling and talking to each other -- they were mesmerized! Adorable!!

Grayson's Blessing

Grayson's blessing was wonderful! Steve gave a beautiful blessing, and Grayson was very well-behaved, which was a miracle,, because he and I are quite sick!! Thanks to everyone who came!

Our little family!

Look at those big beautiful baby blues!!!

Grayson is getting so big! Can you believe he's only 2 months old?!!

Poor Gray had finally had enough -- and Steve was very sympathetic!

Baby Blessing Change!

We are now just going to have Grayson's blessing at my mom's house instead of at the church! We are also pushing the time back a bit -- we will be meeting at my mom's house at 10:30 AM. We're also having brunch afterward! Hope everyone can still come! :) Write me an email at if you need directions to my mom's house!
