So my little guy is going through a new stage, a clean stage. He goes and runs in the mud and literally rolls in the dirt and rocks, and picks up bugs like most little boys. Then he comes to me exclaiming, "mama" and holds out his hands for me, looking up expectantly. I always laugh because I know what he wants. He wants me to clean his hands and arms and whatever else he got all dirty.
We're still in the car driving to Vegas, and he got messy doing something. He made me wash his hands and feet with a wipe, and then I just gave him the wipe because he still didn't seem satisfied. You can see in these pics that that made him really happy. Silly kid.
So we're driving through Vegas to California, and gratton wanted a drink at the gas station. I watered down some sprite and gave it to him. In the car, I glanced into the back seat and saw him doing something very interesting. He took the straw out and was putting his snacks (crispex and berry cereal) through the straw hole.. He was very proud of himself. I was mostly worried about him dumping it everywhere. I didn't want to stunt his creativity though, so I let him keep doing it. To my surprise, he didn't spill any, but instead let me know when he was finished, so I could take it away for him.

Gratton has been such a cuddle bug this week! He has been cuddling with me a ton. He will take a break from playing, just to come up and sit in my lap for a few minutes. I love this kid!
The blanket in this picture was made by his great grandma Bailey!
So gratton had a first tonight! He tried putting a tennis ball in the ps2 disk tray! As you can imagine, David is simply thrilled! I got some pics though before he could stop him. Gratton even posted the button to close the tray. I guess he wanted to play tennis?

They told us to take away his bottles and that made me sad... My baby is growing up and I don't like it! Tear...

Then later on, we were cleaning up all of our stuff, and Gratton put his bottle up on top of the PS3 controller, on top of the TV case. He made it fit perfectly, and then went back later on again, when he was thirsty.
Another thing he did, that was my favorite- I made a clock for David that said "Love is spelled T-I-M-E." I screwed it back together, and it was sitting on the floor. About 5 minutes later, I turn around and Gratton has the screw driver, and is turning it in the exact spot I was! This kid is so smart, I don't even know what to do with him sometimes. He's like Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory. I will just have to make sure he isn't quite as socially retarded :-)

Well Gratton loves playing the piano. He sits on the bench and looks at the sheet music like he is reading music! It is the most adorable thing I have EVER seen!
Also, thanks again Steve for the piano. He told my Mom I deserved it. Whether or not I did, that was one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me. Thanks Steve, you are amazing!

He took his first steps on November 3, 2011. By Christmas he was walking like a champ!! And he has a new obsession with spoons!! He loves them. Wood ones are his favorite, but he will also take plastic or metal. So when he has his spoon and he gets excited, clear the way because he tends to get a little crazy with the waving of his arms!!
Every time I cook he takes my spoon or whatever I'm using to tend to the meal, and he tries pushing the food around. Future chef? Maybe!
When I load the dishwasher he likes to "help". I use the word loosely though, because he likes to take out the dishes, esp the dirty ones.
He loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse! Don't tell him, but I got him the series soundtrack for his birthday! We will have fun dancing to it! I also got some fabric to make him a Mickey Mouse blankey. Thank goodness for Jo-Anns amazing sales!
He likes all Disney Movies, esp when the songs come on. I would like it more if he had a longer attention span, but eh what can ya do! He's still a little guy! And he does have a longer span than most.
He has this new thing he does when Mom makes him take naps.. He takes off his socks and pants and throws them out of his crib. Why? The kid likes his nakey time...
He is learning to take advantage of the fact that Mom and Dad and even his uncles feel bad when they try to put him to bed and he cries. It makes me feel bad for 5 minutes, but then when he's asleep I know I've done the right thing. However, if I'm out at a Mary Kay party, the boys don't let him cry and when I come home he will still be awake with a big grin on his face, even though he is walking like he's drunk. He is really just such a character!!! I love him so much! Happy Birthday buddy!!
