So Grant will be 2 on Friday. Man is he a big boy now. We are having a party at the YMCA and it is a construction theme. I ordered this cute shirt off etsy.com soooo cute. I took a bunch of pictures at the house for his invitations. I have a friend here that before momhood she was a graphic designer and is very talented. She made the invitations for me and they turned out just the way I wanted them. My mom and sister are flying in today and will be here for the party. We are so excited to see them. I will post more pics after the party just wanted you guys to see the cute invite and how talented my friend Angie is.

We went ice skating today and it was a blast. There is an outdoor skating rink at a huge park here so we decided we would head out there. It was Clint and Grants first time to skate. They both LOVED it. Clint was really good for his first time. He went around like a pro after just a few times around. I took Grant around and he did not want to stop. He kept saying more ice skating mommy pleeeease. So we skated around a few times. It was much harder than I remembered it being. What a fun family outing. I love days like this. It snowed last night so it made it that much more fun being outside with all the snow. Fun memories being made this winter. Lots of firsts for this Texas hot weather family now in the cold weather midwest.

Grant had his first swim lesson last night. It is a parent and me class. Clint is the parent as it is not swim suit session for me yet. he had a blast. The lessons are at the YMCA and we go swim there lots. He loves it. So last night was just getting used to the water which both of the swimmers were so they are going to do harder stuff next time. He had so much fun with his Daddy and Ms. Tameka his teacher. Here are some pics of our future fish.

I can't believe how time flies. What a little baby he still was last year and how big he has gotten. Here is a little recap of Grant our almost two year old. He loves to talk. He says everything and anything. He loves to sing lots of songs but for Christmas he would sing Jingle Bells by himself as he played throughout the house. He still loves books and loves to be read to. His new thing is he ask Whats that Daddy to everything he sees in the book even if he already knows what it is. He can count to 10. Sing the ABCs with help. He knows all his colors. Loves to play with friends. He is a dessert eater. Ice cream he loves. He likes to play hide and seek and he will cover his eyes and count to five and then look at you and laugh because he knows he needs to count to ten. He is very sweet. He now loves GO Diego Go and so do I because he will really watch it. Did I say he is very verbal. No is his favorite word.I think he remembers everything from when he was little.It is amazing to watch his little mind work. He will remind us to pray at dinner. he likes to eat waffles for breakfast almost every day. Man is he fun fun fun. these are just some of the things he does. I need to sit and write everything he does. We love you Grant.

We had a very Merry Christmas. We drove to Texas for the first time. I was really worried about the 12 hours and an almost 2 year old. But man did he prove me wrong. He did great thanks to many books, music, Go Diego Go, and lots of snacks. It was a really nice trip. We went to Waco to visit with my family and then to Dallas with Clints family. Grant really loved Santa this year. It was lots of fun. Here are some pics.
