New Crib - Week of April 11

Grady still loves his bouncy chair, and he's starting to grasp objects. He doesn't hold them for long, though. He's also looking intently at the three plush, brightly-colored stars hanging above him.

On Wednesday, April 14, Grady's new Naturepedic crib mattress and pad arrived. They are both organic with no latex, wool or nasty chemicals (it still meets fire-resistant guidelines). So the next day, we put the little man down for his first nap, and hallelujah, he slept from 7:15 am to 10:00 am. Later that day, he slept from 4:30 to 7:30. These are much longer naps than he normally has during the day!

Grady sitting on a monogrammed tie blanket from one of my students. He does look smashing in blues and whites, doesn't he? This is difficult for me based on my aversion to blue, but when a kid looks great in a color, what kind of mother would keep him out of it? Of course, I haven't found a color yet that I don't think he looks handsome wearing.
