Playing: He loves to stand (with help of course). He gets so excited, his eyes get big, and he spreads his arms out for balance. Just this last week, he has started to grab toys and hang onto them. He is "talking" a lot too. He yells for food instead of crying and makes all sorts of sounds like "gaa", "goo" and "baa."
Sleeping: Grant is sleeping better than last month. He is heading to bed at 7:00 p.m. and up at 5:30 p.m. Goodbye to sleeping in on the weekends! He will sleep for 4-5 hours in a row now. He takes three naps a day (7:00-8:00 a.m., 9:30-10:30 a.m., and 12:00-2:00 p.m.).
In preparation for my return to work, Grant started daycare this week. Here is a picture of his first day (he is sleepy). He did great and likes being around the other kids. He will go to daycare for 3 days and Grandma and Grandpa Hagen's the rest of the week. They are excited to have him, but won't start watching him until they are back from Palm Springs (oh, the retired life).
