Grant 8 months

My Dearest Ginty,

8 months old already big boy!
And what a cute little elf you are.
What are you up to right now?
*You got a tooth! Your first tooth exactly on your eighth month birthday.
*You are quite adept at picking up finger foods already. And man do you love food.
*Still not a great sleeper. The crib thing? Still a work in progress.
*Sitting up well.
*Reaching for toys.
*Crying for toys you want that the other kids have. Particularly the iPad, Ahem.
*Growling, laughing and little bit of babbling.
*Just starting to imitate noises I make at you.
*Love peek a boo.
*Hate hate hate being left alone.
*Weaned. Sniff. At least it was done on YOUR terms and not some stinky doctors.
*Still a little bit of a leaner to one side. And still a little uneven in your cheeks.
*HUGE. 21+ lbs yesterday. Only about 4 inches shorter than Sam. (Who weighs 22 or 23 lbs on a good day.)
*Wearing 18 month clothes which I swear shrink every night. 2T is in the near future.
*Definitely think of yourself as part of a "herd". This is most interesting to mama who had Jack as an only for so long. In L O V E with your siblings. You think they are the bees knees man. Even when your sister bangs you on the head with a rattle a leeetle too hard. Oy.
*The light of my eye, my littlest boy.

Love you,

P.S. Yesterday was another first for you - double ear infections. Burning up with fever, limp and oh so sad. You slept all day long. Three doses of magic antibiotic and you are back to your usual smiley self today.

P.P.S. At the antique fair on Monday someone looked at you and Sam and exclaimed - "OH MY GOODNESS! They are like a pair of perfect kewpie dolls."  Awww.


  1. I love these posts. Love watching your cuties grow up.

  2. You have such a way with words...
    Thanks for sharing Grant!

  3. These posts you write about your children are delightful. I relive my children's growing up through your eyes. What a lovely mommy you are.


Hi there. What say you?
