Well, I couldn't have asked for a better birthday. The weather was unseasonably warm and sunny, I made a bunch of money selling baby gear and clothes at a mom2mom sale, my mom came up to spend the weekend with us, Liam and Grant were both angels when we went out for a late lunch/early dinner.
The past week was also eventful. Grant started crawling! He's still working it all out, but he can push up on his arms really well. He managed to crawl across the length of the rug in the living room to get to his favorite toy - his stacking cups.
Liam is learning to share with his brother, now that Grant is interested in his toys and can get to them. Sometimes Liam is willing to share, but doesn't know how to play. Other times, he is reluctant to share or even takes Grant's toys. It is a work in progress...But the other night I was happy to have them both on my lap and they played together well after I gave Liam a suggestion on how to share. Liam had a mini slinky that he would let Grant pull on. Grant thought it was funny. They both took turns pulling on it and laughing. The next morning, Liam and Grant played again. I hope they can have many more fun games like that together. :)
Before all the snow melted with the little warm-spell, Liam and I managed to get outside and make a snowman last weekend. Liam did a good job helping me pack the snow. Our snowman was taller than Liam when we were finished. We added a carrot nose and brusselsprouts for eyes!
