11 Months Old

Ladies and Gentlemen (mostly ladies)
Graeson Royce Has Arrived

Mommy and I felt like you may enjoy having a few words from dear old Da Da to carry with you into the future. You are 11 months old now Boo Boo- your rockstar personality and your desire to explore are matching one another step for step. I catch your mother staring at you some times (I think shes trying to stop you from growing so fast through some kind of spooky spoon bending super power), but don’t worry, Da Da is there to break her concentration before it has any real effect on you. Oh yea, your getting to be quite the little prankster now. You find dangerous and poisonous things and act like you’re going to hand them over only to yank them back and shove them in your mouth (HAHA). One of my proudest moments came this month when you saw me walk in from work and said, “HI DADA!!” I almost fell over with pride. However, you seem to have really expanded on this new trick, so much in fact that you say “HI DADA” to RJ and… well…..the oven. I’m sure your just practicing for your next genuine DADA encounter so, no worries. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that you will save your first real walking session for the evening when I will be here to cheer you on but, I fear that any second your hands will leave the safety of the nearest object and you will be walking.

Our little Trick Or Treaters

I’m finally back from my little blogging vacation and I have so much to share.  We have been having a pretty spectacular fall so far, and our first halloween was pretty awesome all in itself.  We have been so busy that the holiday snuck up on us!  We realized the day before Halloween that we didn’t even have pumpkins yet and we needed to make an emergency trip to the pumpkin patch!  It was both RJ and Grae’s first time picking out pumpkins, and both boys decided to pick out the two shiniest pumpkins in the field. Even though we were a little late with our festivities,  our jack-o-lanterns were some of the freshest on the street. 🙂  RJ (our little pirate) had a blast knocking on doors and screaming “TRICK OR TREAT!”, while Grae the Fearless Lion giggled and ROARED as he got pulled around in a big wagon full of blankets.
