When I grow up...

Liam has decided he's going to be either a paleoanthropologist or Robin Hood. That's my boy!

Stunt Man Grant

Grant is making the first moves at cruising. The only problem is that his confidence is greater than his skill at standing and walking... video

Yesterday...

...I signed Liam up for Kindergarten at the Montessori school! Wow, there it is. I can't hardly believe it. Seems like yesterday that he was a little crawling babe and now he's gearing up for real school.

Speaking of crawling babes, Grant as gotten super mobile in the past few days. I am constantly picking him up and moving him away from things he shouldn't be getting into. I thought my house was baby-proofed, but I forgot how mischievous little crawling boys can be! I think I'm going to need to tether my floor lamps to the wall, along with a few other special measures...On the other hand, it is fun to watch him crawl around the house and explore with such eagerness and curiosity. Everything is new and exciting for him!

Dio Donti (Two Teeth)

Today Grant's second tooth popped out of his gums. He's been quite unhappy about it. I can't say I can blame him either, especially since he has an ear infection as well. Sean took him to the Dr. today while I was teaching. Poor kid...at least it's only his second ear infection.

Over last weekend we all had the chance to go to the Orchid Show - one of our favorite events every year. Liam took his camera and took some pictures (see below).

Sean and I took a few pictures too, although we were not super serious about it this year since we have so many pictures from previous years. We did, however, manage to win first prize for the hand-painted orchid guitar that Sean and I made together. It was a lot of work, but it paid off - we've been after a first prize for years.
