Candy lover!

So Gratton loves candy. We have a bowl in the window with Twizzlers in it, and I'm sitting on the couch under the window when Gratton crawls up to me like he wants to he held. So I pick him up and what does he do? He crawls up onto my shoulder and grabs the candy bowl down. He is so nuts, hes great at problem solving. He's only eight months old but he figures out how to do anything and everything he wants.. Little trouble maker...

"I would like to play in peace please!"

So Gratton has learned how to close doors this week! I guess he likes being alone because I can't tell him not to do stuff, like stick things in his mouth. He doesn't like being told no. David and I just sat there and watched as he shut himself into the Boys room; that is his favorite place to play because the fish are in there. He is so crazy. I love him!

Gratty loves to eat!

So today Gratton has done some really funny things. He has a cold and hasn't been eating so much, but today he seems to have gotten his appetite back! I tried feeding him bananas, but he wouldn't eat them. I took him out of the saucer and forgot the bananas on the tray... Well I go back to the laundry and when I turn around he is standing at the tray, spooning bananas into his own mouth! I couldn't believe it! He is only 8 months old, but I'm pretty sure he thinks hes like 3.

Then I made dinner- steaks, mashed potatoes and green beans. I mashes up the beans and was feeding him the mashed potatoes when he got very frustrated; he wanted to feed himself. Well I finally decided to just let him have fun, and to clean it up later. It was awesome!! He was spooning the potatoes and beans into his mouth just like me and the boys were. It was crazy. The only thing he was doing wrong was holding the spoon sideways. Not bad for eight months old though.

He got pretty messy, so when he finished I took him to the sink to clean him up, and he sits down in the sink and tries to give himself a little shower. He takes showers with Dad, but HATES baths as much as a cat! It was sooo cute. My little boy is getting so big! Right now he is walking around pushing my pilates ball. Those things are pretty hard to balance on. He is growing up so fast. I saw a brand new baby at church, and I was like ahh I need a new one cause Grat isn't a baby anymore! Not yet, but hopefully sometime in the near future :)

Destination Inn

This is the room that David got us! He is so sweet!!!! I am so excited!! I love hotels, and have always wanted to go to Hawaii. We can't afford it yet, but this is pretty darn close ;)

Two Year Anniversary!

Yesterday was our two year anniversary, and it was awesome! First David made me breakfast. I was going to make him breakfast, but he beat me to it! Gratton wanted my food of course, and ate about half of my eggs haha. Then I went to school and he went to work. After school I had ballet. When I got home he gave me my card and surprise! Inside the card was a printed out picture of a "Hawaii hotel room". We're gonna go to Hawaii! Haha not real Hawaii, but in Idaho Falls there is a hotel called Destination Inn, and we're gonna have a little getaway next week! Wahoo!! He put a lot of thought into this year, and it made me happy! He also had a vase of flowers for me when he came home from work! Also, we went to Wingers for dinner. We were going to go see a movie too-Contagion- but I got sick and had to go home. Blasted stomach.... Anyway

David is so sweet :) I love him so much. We have a cute little family, well not so little- there are five of us because we are taking care of my brothers. We have sooo much fun though! We went to the straw maze twice already this year, and we've already decorated for Halloween and carved our first batch of pumpkins. We've also been watching a whole lot of scary movies for the month of October. Fun stuff :) David has been working a lot though, he is working two jobs. So most of the time I'm just hanging out with my little guy and brothers and sister. But I would much rather have a husband who works two jobs than no jobs. He takes care of us. Anyway, just wanted to tell everyone how awesome yesterday was! Love you guys tons, ttyl!

He said mama!!

So today was a great day! Kirstie made the best breakfast in the world- crepes! Also, an omelet casserole. Gratton ate a ton of banannas, haha he really likes them. He choked on a big piece that he tried to swallow, and then when he spit it up he tried to put it back in his mouth to eat it again. It was really funny.

Then tonight, while David was at work, he said Mama for the first time!! He always says dada, and when I try to get him to say mama he says- dadadadadada. But tonight he was saying Mamamamama! It was awesome. Then he cried and cried because he was really tired and didn't want to sleep. But that's okay because he said Mama!!
