New Toys

I thought that I bought a lot of things for Grayson, but his daddy is always getting him new toys!

I usually end up getting Grayson clothes over toys because I think he has PLENTY of TOYS! 

He probably has plenty of clothes, but sometimes I just can't resist! 

Here is Grayson with his new toy of the week!

TP and Monday

Today I was going to do a post about our weekend and how Grayson cried every night for 2 hours, but I decided to do a post on our great Monday! 
Lots of good news today that made me happy! 
It was a perfect Monday after our not so good weekend!  It was a tough weekend for me as a mom!  I keep thinking about doing a post about my feelings, but right now I am going to just appreciate this Monday and show you some pictures of Grayson. 

Look what Grayson found this morning... 
 
I was in his nursery putting clothes away and getting his clothes ready for the day and I walked into the hallway and found Grayson playing and having a great time with the TP!

Blueberry Kind Of Morning

I haven't given any table food to Grayson until this morning.  I was craving Blueberry Pancakes so I thought I would make some this morning for our family.  I thought it would be the perfect first breakfast food to give to Grayson. 
HE LOVED THEM!

Dancing Grayson

Grayson has just started dancing when he is standing holding onto his toys, his crib, or the ottoman in our living room.  It is so cute watching his little legs move! 



I am finally feeling better after having the flu for 5 days.  Now Grayson has a cold and a horrible cough that keeps him up at night.  I took Grayson to the doctor yesterday afternoon and after waiting 2 HOURS to be seen all WE can do is let the cough run its course and over time it will get better.  UGH!  The doctor (who by the way isn't Grayson's normal pediatrician) checked his ears and they look fine no infection.  I am concerned about his ears because he is having yellow drainage out of both ears.  Is this normal after getting tubes?  After spending so much time at the doctor's office yesterday I have decided that we might start looking for a new pediatrician's office.  Waiting for over an hour for an appointment has happened at least twice and when you have a 10 month old that wants to get down and crawl every where it makes it difficult, which by the way he did not get down at all.  I was afraid of all the germs in that place. 

I just wanted to share this cute video I didn't mean to go on and on about our doctor's appointment.  But if you live in NWA and have a recommendation for a pediatrician I will welcome them. 

So glad tomorrow is Friday, I am taking Grayson to his 1st Gymboree class during lunch!  I am excited to see what he thinks! 

Someone did ask on a comment on my last post and I did find my Easter Dress at Ruche.  Check it out they have some cute dresses and much more!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Today I thought about doing a Wordless Wednesday Post but I decided I would expand on my Wednesday and share what I'm loving on this day!
I loved waking up this morning and seeing my sweet baby looking at me through the baby monitor. 

and even if the below picture is not perfect I love it because it shows the detail of Grayson's baby blues!


I'm Loving Twitter!

It might not be for everyone, but I love the people that I have gotten to know through twitter the past several months and all the encouraging words and support all of us give each other.  It is amazing that I can tweet one thing and so many mommy's on twitter will respond with advice.  This morning I tweeted that I was looking for Easter Dresses on Modcloth and several twitter friends showed me new sites.  I love that and guess what I think I found a few options. 

My sister Amie has the song Good Life by Lily Wilson on her photography site and I'm Loving this song.  I have been listening to it all day while I work. 

I'm Loving that today is Wednesday and only two more days of work!

What are you Loving Today?

Grayson in the Grass

Last night after we finished up with Grayson's 10 month pictures I took him outside in the backyard and put him in the grass.  It was funny watching him.  He would not let his hands touch the grass.  That was until he saw Bella rolling in the grass and decided it was okay to crawl.  But after crawling for a few steps he stopped and put up his hands again.  It was fun to watch and enjoy the warm evening outside.  Bring on Spring!

10 Months


Grayson you are 10 months old {and a few several days because mommy is late doing your monthly post}

Thanks to daddy we were able to get some really great pictures!

The BIGGEST news is that you are CRAWLING EVERYWHERE!  This and you pull up and STAND UP on EVERYTHING!  This morning I found you pulling up and standing next to the toilet. 

The moment I take you out of your crib in the morning you are crawling out of your room and you go straight to the laundry room or your bathroom.  You are SO FAST!
In less than two months we will be celebrating your 1st birthday!  I have already started planning and preparing things for your birthday.  I am so excited!

What have you been up to this month:
~ You started in a new class room last week called the Ladybugs and every day you cry when I drop you off.  This was NEVER an issue in your old class.  I hope it gets better because the crying every morning makes mommy sad and then I get in my car and cry. 

~ You had tubes put in your ears in February and you are eating better during the day.  We still have days where you don't eat well and you wait until you are home with me to eat. 
~ You love puffs, yogurt melts, cheese puffs, and cereal bars. You are doing great at picking up food and feeding yourself.

~ I have given you Stage 3 food and you are not a fan!  So we have gone back to Stage 2 food for now.  I am hoping that we can start eating more table food over the next month. 
~ You love playing with all your toys, however now that you are crawling you are all over the house exploring.  In fact this past week you found Bella's dog bowls.  YUCK!
~ You still say Dada for everything and I continue to work on getting you to say Mama. 
~ You still don't sleep through the night, but the biggest reason is that when you don't eat during the day you spend the evening eating. You are too busy during the day at school to eat and they have a difficult time getting you to eat.  I wish this would change because I know you would sleep through the night. 
~ You sleep the best in the EARLY morning hours! 
~ You now have 4 teeth!
~ You are 100% drinking formula now!  I am no longer pumping as you decided on February 28th, 2011 that you would not drink breastmilk anymore. 
~ You are wearing size 6-12 month clothes
~ You are wearing size 9 month PJ's
~ You are wearing size 3 shoes {they are a bit big}
~ You are wearing size 3 diapers
~ You can clap and it is so cute to see you clap on command
~ You can wave, but we are still working on getting you to wave when we ask you too
~ You love Bella and you are now starting to go after her now that you are crawling.  Bella runs away!  I am hoping that you will both will become great buddies.
~ You love being outside playing at the park or going on walks in your stroller. 

~ You love playing with buttons or zippers.  If I have a zipper or a button on my clothes you instantly find it and start playing with it.  

As I sit here and complete your 10 month post I wonder what you will do over the next month and will you be walking...
Only time will tell!

Our Saturday

Today I am in bed with the FLU!  Yuck!  I just took the pink medicine and I am feeling better.  I am praying that Grayson doesn't get this... Chad gave it to me.  He was in St. Louis last week and was sick on Thursday and Friday when he returned home.  He is feeling better and is doing a great job of taking care of Grayson and me too!

Yesterday morning we attended a birthday party at Jump Zone for Kendall and Kelsey and we have gone to Jump Zone for 5 parties this year and this was the first time we went and Grayson was crawling every where. It was fun to watch him. He was so tired and took a great afternoon nap.
Here are a few pictures I took during the times I wasn't chasing after him.
I love his jeans and polo shirt!  He looks like a big boy in this picture! 
Grayson and Kendall (the birthday girl).  Grayson loves Kendall.  This is his newest thing looking eye to eye at anyone.  It is so cute! 

Grayson has been fussy and he has been drooling like crazy...guess what he got his two top teeth.  That makes four teeth for our little guy.  I feel bad because I didn't even think of him getting more teeth until he put my finger in his mouth and chewed on it then I realized that he has his top teeth.  He is growing up so fast!  In less than two months we will be celebrating his 1st birthday! 
I took this picture on Friday night and thought it was too cute!


We still have not taken any pictures of Grayson for his 10 month post.  I hope to take pictures on Monday.  WE will see I have a BUSY week so please pray that I feel better tomorrow. 
Have a great Sunday evening!

Days I Just Want...

Today was a day that I just wanted to be a Mommy!  I didn't want to work I just wanted to be with my baby all day!  I have a lot going on and feel like I never can get ahead!  I have laundry piling up, I have checkbooks/monthly bills to pay, I have to complete our taxes, I have a LONG list of things to complete for work, I haven't been grocery shopping in over a week (which means I have been eating a lot of peanut butter sandwiches), and I have gifts to purchase for this weekend. 
Ugh...it is never ending!
I am trying to make time for myself by doing the Shred each day and I feel SO MUCH better, but there are nights where I don't sleep because I have a million things going on in my mind.  So today I am jealous of all you moms that stay home with your babies.  The next several days are going to be BEAUTIFUL here and I am hoping that Grayson and I can enjoy them by going on walks or playing at the park.  I am just hoping that he will be awake after school the next few days so we can enjoy one another.  I get so sad every night that all I get to do with Grayson is give him a bottle and rock him to sleep, I wish we could spend more time playing.  But given the fact that he doesn't sleep at school my little guy is worn out! 
Sorry for complaining I have had a day where all I want to do is be a mom!
Here are a few pictures that I took of Grayson before he went to bed for the night! 
Love this little guy to pieces!
Tomorrow is another day closer to the weekend and that is something to look forward too!

Couponchief.com

One thing that I have discovered after having a baby is that the time I had to do certain things like go shopping for myself goes out the door.  I love spending time playing with Grayson during my spare moments so going out and shopping is usually the last thing I think of doing.  But thank goodness for online shopping and this new site I discovered called CouponChief.com
I did a lot of online shopping for the first three months of Grayson's life.  It was just easier to stay home.  I know all you new mommies can relate. 

  Coupon Chief is coupon clipping that has gone digital!  Armed with coupon codes you will be able to save a bundle on purchases online for both products and services.

You should really go check it out yourself to get the full idea of what this site has to offer, but the #1 thing that I LOVE about this site is that I can type a store, for example GAP, in the search bubble and it will come back with coupons to use on the GAP site.  This is AMAZING!  I shop for Grayson's clothes at GAP and I love getting discounts because he won't be in the same size clothes in a few months.  For myself I use the coupons from Ann Taylor Loft, as this store is one of my new favorite places to shop for me! 

You can also follow Coupon Chief on Twitter and Facebook by clicking here for twitter and here for facebook.  They do a great job of sending out specials. 
Take a moment and start saving!

Our Weekend

Don't forget to ENTER the GIVEAWAY for a chance to win a DRESS from Shabby Apple. 

What a SUNNY Saturday we had it was beautiful and we are ALL ready for Spring!


We spent the afternoon playing outside and going for a walk with Bella too!

Saturday evening we went to a housewarming party for our friends, but before we made a trip to Target to get our BIG boy a new car seat.  We finally made the purchase because Grayson throws a fit every time I put him in the car seat.  I am hoping that he likes his new car seat, we will have our first test tomorrow on the way to school. 
The car seat we ended up purchasing was the Graco My Ride 65 Convertible Car Seat.
At Target Grayson was sporting his TOMS that his Auntie JJ got him.  I think he looks adorable in them! 


After our trip to Target we headed to a housewarming party for our friends Tiffany and Aaron.  They purchased a new home a few months ago and it is beautiful.  Tiffany has done a great job decorating.  Here are a few pictures that Ashley took during the night. 
{I love this picture... look at Baby G's tongue!}

Grayson was pretty good with all the new faces and played well with Avery and Stella.  It was fun for him to have a few friends to play with.  It was a great night of visiting with friends, but the hour of sleep that we lost has been tough on Grayson all day!  He was up every hour last night and he has napped horrible today.  I am hoping that we have a better night tonight.  Did this happen for any other moms?

Today Grayson went to the church daycare again and he did great!  I put his St. Patrick's Day Tie Shirt on for church today.  I think it is adorable. 
I love Grayson in tie onesies!!!  
  {I took this picture before we got out of the car to go into church}

Quick mommy question:
Does anyone recommend getting the Summer Infant Secure Surround Play Safe Play Yard?

Now that Grayson is crawling he is EVERY WHERE and I can't always just sit by his side and play with him.  So we have thought of getting one of the play yards, but I would like to hear from you before I make this purchase.  Thanks in advance. 

We had a great weekend and we are ready for the busy week ahead!
