Grady's shag rug (yes, shag) is a soft spot for him to lie down and work on his tummy time activities. He can hold himself up for an extended length of time, and he eventually rolls over.
Eating the rug? No, Grady is talking and shrieking. He has started to try out his vocal range lately. His pitch can be piercingly high at times - maybe he'll sing opera like his Aunt Emily! After he lets out his shrieks, he often giggles. He's a funny baby - in fact, he even laughs aloud when he's all by himself. Of course, John and I think he's hilarious (and brilliant).
