Still Here

I haven't written in forever.  Still here.  Grayson is talking better and better each day. He is getting a lot better about knowing his numbers and letters.  He surprises me everyday.  Picking out numbers and letters throughout our daily life activities such as standing in line at the grocery store and pointing out the check out lane number lights.  He is still really into trains.  Loves Mario Cart.  He is into the movies Happy Feet and Sandlot.  Tells me he loves me everyday.... which I don't mind.  Still really stubborn.  Can't tell him to do anything, especially using the potty for the life of me.  Loves to jump off of anything he can stand on.  We took him to a River Bandits game a month or so ago.  He loved it.  Hopefully I can get him back there again this season.  He met the mascot, got to eat a hot dog, got to go out of the stadium and watch a train go by, and watched fireworks.  It was a good time.  We watched the Blue Angels this past weekend.  He thought that was pretty neat as well. The picture above is from the weekend.  I believe he was looking for the planes.

Yesterday I had to work (Saturday) so Jim came over and watched Grayson while I was gone. When I came back this is what I found when I opened the door. I couldn't believe it but I could. History Channel was blaring on the TV and it looked like Grayson's toy box exploded. Jim says they fell asleep around the same time... Grayson's version is daddy fell asleep so he decided he should go to sleep too. I think they had a good time to say the least.

Christmas and New Years flew by. About a week before Christmas, Grayson got to meet Santa. The Eldridge Library had a get together on Saturday morning. They had a train set up for the kids to watch and they also got to frost cookies. Grayson loved the train. It was his favorite part. His friend Aiden from daycare was there too so that made it even better. Grayson did sit on Santa's lap but once he realized he was on a strangers lap he wanted off. Although he was on long enough to tell him he wanted a blue boat for Christmas.
