14 Months Old!

Dear Grayson,

                    You are 14 months old!!  This month you have been a busy boy!  Everyday you show us something new you have learned....like climbing on the dishwasher...

 or feeding your self with a spoon.

 You do not sit still. Ever. 

(ps- Don't you think he looks kinda like Tyler, Rebecca?)

You LOVE LOVE LOVE taking a bath in the kitchen sink! 

You adore you Ada (Daddy)!

You love to play outside and will cry when we bring you in. 
(I took these today on his birthday)

 This picture is out of focus but the look on his face I LOVE!  He is rolling down the hill! 

 You can say Mamma, Ada (Daddy), Gog (dog), Kiki (kitty kitty), Hi, Bye, Coco (cracker/cookie), Nah (no), yeah (yes), and go.  You jibber jabber all the time- most is unrecognizable!

You love to play with a ball and have learned to throw it to the dogs!  

Your nap schedule is wonderful!!  You will lay down around 11am and then again around 3pm-both naps last an hour and half.  I keep trying to push them together for one loooong nap but you will not have it.  MELT.DOWN.CITY!!!   My most favorite time of day is right when you wake up from your nap.  We snuggle in your rocking chair and those are the most precious moments of my day!! 

You go to bed at 7pm every night. 

 You are still working on those 4 top teeth coming all the way in.  You short little teeth melt my heart. 

Grayson Kelly you are the light in my life!  I love you so very much!  It is such a joy being your Momma!!

Happy Birthday Devyn!

Every year Ashley and I get asked to decorate for her niece's birthday party.  This year she wanted a "horse" theme and it turned out completely adorable!  Ashley and I had a lot of fun putting all of the cute things together.  Devyn LOVED it!  We had to jet over to the football game after the party was decorated so we did not get to see all of her little friends enjoying everything.  :(  But we got the report from her mom that everyone was having a great time!  Here are some pictures of the sweet party!

Happy Birthday sweet Devyn!  It is hard to believe you are already 7 years old!

One of my favorite times of the day is the hour or so before Gray goes to bed.  I don't know if it is the intoxicating smell of a clean baby or the fact that in a short while I will have 5 minutes to myself but I LOVE IT! It helps that Gray is extra sweet during that time too.  Here are some before bedtime pictures of my sweet boy in his pajamas. 

Here comes trouble....

 Big Bubba carrying his toy!  
I think it is adorable when he does this!  

Thank you Lord for precious nights with this sweet boy!

Go Big Orange!

Saturday was Tennessee's first home game!  Since Gray is still a little young to go, I decided to put him in a cute UT outfit and take some pictures!!

 Down. Set. Hike!

It's Football Time In Tennessee!!!! 
Go Vols!!!

Gray's Special Birthday

On Grayson's actual birthday (his party was the Saturday after) he had some special friends come up for a visit.  We met them for lunch at Chili's and then headed over to Wallabie's (our local bounce play place).  It was so much fun!  Once we left Wallabie's, we went to a cupcake bakery for a snack.  Poor Gray fell asleep and missed his birthday cupcake haha! A good time was had by all.

These are the sweet girls that came to visit!  

 He would get to the bottom of the slide and clap haha!

 Crawling all around! 

He always keeps his mouth open when we are there haha! 


Trying to make him smile

 Gray LOVES to push these red chairs around!

I would like to introduce you to someone special.
This is Kamile, Grayson's birth mother.  
Isn't she adorable...

I was so excited that she was able to come and spend Grayson's birthday with us.  It was a special day for all of us.  I am so thankful of our relationship with her and her wonderful family! We love you guys!
