Grant Update!

We're still alive and I'm finally giving an update on Grant! It's been hard to find the time when he won't let me focus on anything longer than 5 mins, but his naps are starting to get longer so here it goes! I'll try to make it the reader's digest version.

Grant will be 5 months on Saturday and weighs a whopping 20 pounds and is 28 inches long. He sits up all by himself and can catch himself if he goes forward or to the side. If he goes backwards he's done for so we still put a pillow behind him. He's been in the crib since he was two months, but now when I go into get him he is on his tummy and not on his back where I started him. We're still working on sleeping through the night, but now that he's on rice cereal I'm hoping that it gets better. He is almost in 12 month clothes and has been in nine month clothes since he was 3 months. He is laughing and likes to make all sorts of noises. He's even figured out how to scream :) No teeth yet, but I think I see something white coming through on the bottom. At first I thought it was a reflection, but I always see it so I'm just waiting to see what happens. He loves the water and I can't wait to take him swimming when it warms up a bit. He seems to finally be taking longer naps, but usually I'm lucky if I get 30 mins. Anything and everything within reach goes into his mouth. He is constantly moving and has been like that since he was born. The only time he is still is if he is sleeping. Everyone says I'll hate it, but I really hope that he figures out this crawling thing soon. You can tell that he wants to and just gets so angry when I put him on his stomach and he can't go anywhere. I think that's all the big news for now so here are some pics. We've got some great video too, but I still have to figure out how to load it on to my computer and then on to blogger.

We love this little guy so much and we are so glad that he is part of our family!
