Love this picture of Grandpa, Grady and me ~ the joy Grady brings to all of us is evident!

Over Christmas break, I used snowshoes from school and took Grady sledding in our yard and down our driveway. Grady loved the sled and playing in the snow! He especially giggled when I did two faceplants after catching my snowshoes on each other - it was darn funny to listen to him, even though falling was a bit of a blow to my ego.
On Tuesday, Grady crawled for real. He went all over the main level of the house - our bedroom, closet, master bath, laundry room, hallway and his room. He's on the move, and I'm certain life will never be as simple as it was when he sat for 20 minutes playing in his room. I'm also sure the vacuum and the mop will be my new favorite cleaning tools. (Oh fun!)

On a snowy Saturday (14 inches and strong winds), the three of us hunkered in at home and snapped potential greeting card pictures (probably 40 pictures to get 2). We placed Grady's chicken-dance, singing duck behind the camera; John pushed the button to get the duck to sing and dance, and then he quickly got himself into the picture. We repeated this process numerous times, and to my pleasant surprise, both John and Grady stayed extremely positive. John and I were turned away looking at the pictures when we heard a thump - Grady, in his excitement to get moving, tried to stand up and took a nose dive to the floor. Bless his soul, he just started to laugh! He is a total joy!

The family at Grandma's Lay Ministry Commissioning
Grady loved swimming with his cousins!
Look at that form - maybe he'll be the next Michael Phelps! Or maybe he'll just love the water. In fact, he loves the water so much, that he now crawls into our shower to play while we're showering. (Guess we didn't consider that when we designed our bathroom - being a parent of a 10-month old certainly creates a new perspective!)
