Week 39: 365

Week 39!

March 20, 2010: Our next door neighbor Dylan turned 1 today! We headed over for the celebration and I think Gray was trying to flirt with D's cousin Serenity. Looks like she wasn't too impressed...haha

March 21, 2010: We had our second recording at church on this night. It was awesome! Weston had some fun playing on the stage after it was all over. That face just screams mischief!

March 22, 2010: After I was done filling out the 2010 Census, Weston decided to have some fun with the envelope...

March 23, 2010: Grayson and I went to meet Jenn for dinner at Famous Dave's. It was great to see Jenn! Grayson had some fun drinking her water out of a straw (and trying to pose for a picture at the same time!)

March 24, 2010: I broke this toy out for Gray. It converts to a walking toy and since he seems to be heading that direction pretty soon, I thought he might benefit from having it to play with. Of course Weston thinks it's his toy and tried to ride on it right along with his brother. I love these boys.

March 25, 2010: After having about a month off, I started watching Dylan again this week. We love having him back around the house! I had to get all the boys in the car so we could go to Bible Study at church on Thursday morning. I was pretty impressed that I was able to make it work! Look how handsome they all are!

March 26, 2010: This is how Grayson starts the night off-in his own bed. This lovely scene usually only lasts for about 2-3 hours and then he's in bed with Mike and me. I'm really hoping to break this habit sooner rather than later.

Week 38: 365

Week 38!!!

March 13, 2010: Ms. Debbie took Jacqueline and me out for our birthdays to Cheesecake Factory. They brought our cheesecake out on these plates! So cool!

March 14, 2010: Mark said I should put Weston's hair in a faux hawk for Sunday morning, so I did! He looked so cute and loved when people complimented him on it. He kept going up to people and pointing at his hair so they would say something about it.

March 15, 2010: This was our first trip out just me and the boys since we moved Grayson out of the infant carseat. Since the move, I can no longer put Gray (in the infant carseat) in the back of the cart, and Weston in the front so I had to have Weston sit in the back of the cart. He seemed to really enjoy checking out everything we were buying.

March 16, 2010: Lee University Campus Choir was in town so the family and I went down to Brooklyn Church of God to see them perform. I also really enjoyed seeing my best friend Jenn who I haven't seen in a while. Grayson liked distracting Jenn from the performance.

March 17, 2010: Happy St. Patty's Day! I made Weston's milk festive today by adding green food dye to his milk, and by putting it in a green cup of course!

March 18, 2010: Forgot to take a picture again. I'm getting terrible at this! I need to stop forgetting! However, I did have a lia sophia jewelry party on this day which is probably why I forgot since I was cleaning my house nonstop before the party. :) We had a lot of fun and I can't wait to get some beautiful jewelry.

March 19, 2010: As promised, here is a picture of Weston's new stool that my dad brought up recently. The letters come out and go back together like a puzzle. Weston absolutely loves it and I can't wait to get one for Grayson now. :)

Week 37: 365

Week 37!!
March 6, 2010: A group of us went up to Gettysburg to eat at Dobbin House for my birthday. It was so delicious! Here is Mike and me enjoying our dinner!

March 7, 2010: This little padded play set is my favorite thing in our new nursery at church. All the kids love climbing and sliding on it, including Grayson. Here he is with his friend Wyatt!

March 8, 2010: I picked up Kati from school this day and we had some time to kill before I had to drop her off at counseling so we went to the park. It was such a beautiful day. The only upset was that there was still a lot of snow on the ground causing a lot of mud so we didn't really get to play to much. I'm really excited to have found a new park to play at this summer.

March 9, 2010: Another absolutely gorgeous day! I broke out the Radio Flyer and took the boys for a little stroll around the block. They loved it! I can't believe Grayson is already big enough to sit in the wagon all by himself.

March 10, 2010: While waiting for Mike Wednesday night, I found this wig back stage at church. I thought it would be funny to put it on Grayson, and it was! Haha. He looks awesome. I tried to put it on Weston as well, but he was having no parts of it.

March 11, 2010: My dad came up to visit for my birthday, and to give Weston his stool they ordered for Christmas. The boys had such a blast playing with their Pop and the stool is SO cute! I'll have to take a picture of Weston playing with it some time soon. (P.S. Look how much Gray looks like his Pop!!)

March 12, 2010: Weston was being so silly after dinner on this night. I don't know how much sugar he ate but something had him going. Here he is doing his high pitched imitation laugh. He's going to be such a comedian.

Week 36: 365

Week 36!

February 27, 2010: With illnesses still going on the house, I forgot, yet again, to take a picture on this day. I can't believe I forgot 2 days in a row!!! Unfortunately, I don't even have a pretend picture to put up because all we did was sit around and watch TV all day. :/

February 28, 2010: Ms. Bobbie takes a picture of Weston and Grayson every month to track their growth. Here she is taking Weston's 20 month old picture. He was hamming it up!!

March 1, 2010: After searching high and low, I finally found a Wii Fit Plus Bundle at BJ's!!! Not only do I LOVE it, the boys had a blast playing with the box! Bonus!!!

March 2, 2010: Mike wasn't feeling good so instead of making dinner, we went out and got Wendy's. (I mean, I COULD have made dinner...but didn't really want to). I got a Frostichino with my meal and it was AMAZING!!! Weston thought so too.

March 3, 2010: Weston got his first face boo boo. :( He tripped on the sidewalk and busted his lip. You can't see it too well in this picture, but only a couple hours before he was gushing blood and screaming his little heart out. Poor little guy. :(

March 4, 2010: Happy Birthday to ME!!! I turned 25 today and Mike bought me an almond raspberry cake from Snickerdoodles! I can't believe I'm a quarter century old!

March 5, 2010: I recently learned about Baby Led Weaning and have decided to do it with Grayson since he doesn't like baby cereal or pureed foods. Basically, BLW is about skipping right to finger foods. This morning, I gave Grayson a piece of a banana and he went to town. He did a great job!! So far, I've given him diced peaches, banana and avocado.

Week 35: 365

Week 35!
February 20, 2010: This was the first time the boys have bathed together! Grayson was tired of laying in the baby bath so we borrowed this bath ring from our friend Abby. He loved it! I was even surprised that Weston didn't mind sharing the bath. They both love bathtime. :)

February 21, 2010: Weston grabbed one of Ms. Adrienne's famous cookies from church before we left. Clearly, he enjoyed it.

February 22, 2010: The day before this I had made Almond Pound Cake. I decided it needed a little something more so I made the Almond Butter Cream Icing it called for originally. It was SO good. I even let Weston lick the icing off of the beater which he appreciated very much.

February 23, 2010: Grayson is doing new things every day. This was his accomplishment on this day. He got up on the first step! I'll definitely have to be using the gate for now on.

February 24, 2010: The boys and I met my friend Terri and her son Bennet at Port Discovery for a playdate! It was so much fun and afterwards we walked a couple blocks to Alperstein and Diener, P.A. where I used to work. After all the playing and visiting, the boys were so pooped.
Grayson fell asleep soon after this picture was taken.

February 25, 2010: So Mike, Weston and I were in the kitchen getting dinner together while Grayson was playing in the living room. I went in to check on him, and this is where he was. He had pulled up on the recliner! This was one of the first couple times he pulled up onto something....he's doing it all the time now!!!

February 26, 2010: I did not take this picture. Weston ended up getting sick on this day so I totally forgot to take a picture... :( However, I'm putting this picture up because on this day, Mike went down to hang out with some of his friends he hasn't seen in a long time. Doug, Scott, and Ryan were all childhood friends of Mike's and I'm glad he got to spend some time catching up with them. In this picture is Mike and Scott. (I don't have one of all of them together).
