How old is Evelyn?

Grayson (2.5 years): Grayson is into all things astronaut and rocket ship.  He has been building a lot of rocket ships around the house, and at My Gym this week everything was a rocket to him.  As all astronauts must learn a lesson in gravity, Grayson learned his as he tried to get on top of the rocket ship fort (constructed of a blanket draped from the couch to the coffee table) and crashed through while giving his chin a pretty good smack on the table edge.  Bet he won't try that again!


 Her first Jellies

Evelyn (almost 10 months): Let's just pause here and ask ourselves how she's almost 10 months old already?!?!?  1st birthday party planning has begun, when did this happen?  She is still very much my baby though, and still loves cuddles and being held.  She has been an eating machine lately.  Sometimes she eats more food at a meal than Grayson!  She eats purees, but mostly enjoys feeding herself anything that she can get her hands on.  Fruit, veggies, meat, grains, you name it.  Still no teeth, but this girl can eat a whole banana faster than I can give it to her!

Grayson (2.5 years): Nana and Granddaddy came for a visit, and Grayson was thrilled!  We played at home, and took a trip to DC where we took a tour of the Capitol. We also went to the Air and Space Museum to see Grayson's favorite, Rocket Ships!  Still wants to be an astronaut.

 Evelyn (9.5 months): Oh dear Evelyn.  3 weeks in to the double ear infection, and little improvement.  She stayed home on Tuesday, and came in to work with Mommy for a few hours.  My new intern!  She hasn't been her normal happy self, but her sick equals extra cuddles, and a little extra sleep...Here's to hoping the 3rd round of antibiotics gets the job done!

Grayson (2.5 years): he's very into the cape this week. He runs as fast as he can while yelling "Super Grayson!". He's also working on potty training a bit more and gets a sticker for trying. Where did he want his sticker? On his forehead. 

Evelyn (9.5 months): her hair is starting to get a little longer, and we're having some fun!  Lasted a full 30 seconds!  This little lady has been a bit grumpy this week. We think that she may be finally getting some teeth. She is very cuddly, and won't let me set her down. Lots of ergo wearing this week.

Finally asleep.

Grayson (2.5 years): he sits on the couch at school while Evelyn gets dropped off. A book to pass the time. This guy got sent home yesterday afternoon with a fever which turned out to be an ear infection. Only his 2nd one ever. Still in good spirits, but just moving a little slower than usual. His selfie taking ability is still questionable. A new phrase for getting my attention when I'm not paying attention to him, "mommy, you stop talkin'". I can't help but laugh.

Evelyn (9 months): Evelyn kicked off the week with a double ear infection. Amoxicillin for everyone! She also had her 9 month check up while we were there, and as suspected, she's just perfect. And tiny, 11th percentile in weight and 5th in height. Petite perfection!  Even with the ear infections and cold, she's still a very happy girl. A little clingy, but happy! Grayson took the picture of Evelyn and me. I guess he's getting some better skills after all!  

9.5" of snow on Monday. For real. Where is spring??

He took a picture of his best friend Minnie Mouse. He captured this beauty all by himself.

The two are really into eachother these days.  They are really starting to interact a lot.

Grayson (2.5 years): full of spunk and working on his "CHEEEEEEESE".  He's also coming around to the idea of potty training.  Not fully, but working on it.

Evelyn (9 months): She turned 9 months old yesterday, and spent today celebrating with her first ever double ear infection.  Even not feeling great, she is still one of the happiest babies around!

Grayson (2.5 years):  Grayson is very into imaginary play these days.  He is putting a lot of things together.  He loves the moon, and understands that a rocket ship or space shuttle take you there, and you need to be an astronaut.  Therefor he wants to be an astronaut.  Keep studying kid, and it's all yours!  He is also a bit of a toy hoarder.  He likes to get a bag and put as many toys as he can in it and drag it around the house.  We also find little piles of toy hoards throughout the house.

Evelyn (8.5 months): She is such a silly and happy little girl.  She is very mobile, and can be found halfway across the room standing up only moments after you set her down.

Grayson (2.5 years): snow day bagel!

Evelyn (8 months): within 3 days she went from pulling up to confidently standing and waving a toy

And one more, a new favorite
