I was just getting Grayson up from nap and this is how our conversation went:

Me: Grayson, did you sleep?
Grayson: Mom....I don't want you to be upset. I slept for a little bit, but I don't want you to be upset.
Me: I'm not, but I hope you're telling me the truth. Lying is not a good thing. God even knows when we are lying.
Grayson: Sh! Do you hear Him talking in there (pointing at his Bible on the table by his bed)? That's how God talks to me. That's what he uses to talk to me. My Bible which is God's word, and everyone else's Bibles that are God's word.
Me: Yep....

That's the way to get out of it....start saying something sweet that blows me away. :)

Best Buds

One of my favorite things about having kids is the bond that they have with each other. Just like my brother and sister and I did when we were young, they still argue, but when it comes down to it, they adore each other. I'm starting to see it more every day. Griffin always wants to be with Grayson, and Grayson is always willing to entertain. Because it's been raining so much in Texas, I've probably let them watch more tv than normal, but at least it was Sesame Street. Maybe they learned something in the process. That's exactly what they were doing this morning when I took a picture of this...... :-)

What Griffin's Doin' sweet little man is growing up so fast! I thought I just might need to blog about the things he's been doing so I won't forget.....cause we all know and understand the "Mommy Brain"! To give an update on him, he is now 14 months old. He weighs 26 pounds, and I'm not really sure how tall, but to me he looks so big! We'll know a little more in detail when we go back for his 15 month checkup in October. Until then, here's a little taste of what he's been doing....oh yeah, and what kind of mommy would I be if I didn't post some pics too?!

Things he says.....
Momma, Daddy, hey, bye bye, juice, I love you, puppy, woof woof, moo, cow, meow, uh-oh, Bubba (what he calls Grayson), paci, Bible, eyes, two, alk which translates to walk, please (which he also still signs), row row (like row, row, row, your boat), A, B, C (when trying to sing the alphabet), alright, says uh huh when asked a question and nods his head

Things he does......
follows me around like a stranded puppy (it really is sweet on most days, unless I'm trying to shower), says, "AH CHOO" after someone sneezes, claps, does hand motions to "If you're happy and you know it," dances, attempts to sing songs with me, plays with Daddy's guitars, throws the ball, likes to get the magna doodle and draw on it, runs almost everywhere, loves to take baths, likes to read books, play with his big brother, and this kid would eat anything put in front of him....we haven't found anything he won't eat
