Some Baseball Outfit Pictures

So, I've come to realize that my son has no chance of NOT liking baseball! Eli has already started teaching him to bat as a lefty, and when he is laying on his chest only lets him look the way a lefty would look when batting??? Eli also does exercises with him. It's pretty funny and I think Grady actually likes it! :)

Congrats Nikki!!!

My little sister Nikki (aka my twin) is graduating from high school today! We are so proud of her and want her to know we love her, even though she is really LOUD when Grady's sleeping and she's playing Mario Cart??? :) We love you Nik!

Grady's Favorite Swing

Grady loves his swing!! He sits in it and just stares at all the cool toys. I even caught a little smile escape, usually I only get those when he is starting to fall asleep. We are glad we got a swing he likes! Thanks Aunt Natalie! :)

Our Little Athlete

Eli got this ball from his work, and so we thought we would do a little advertising! This is for you too Papa and Great Grandpa Slesk!!!

Grady and Mommy

Me and Grady spend a lot of time together, and so we were trying to find stuff to do, and decided to take some pictures. You must know that I LOVE this hat!! It is my FAVORITE!! And I think that this binki is just a part of who our Grady is. He loves it, and doesn't part with it very often!

Grady's Blair Witch Project

Eli took these pictures and when he showed them to me, I couldn't stop laughing!! The first thing that popped into my mind was that he looks like he is on the Blair Witch Project.

Size Comparisons

So, even though I feel like my little boy is getting so BIG, these pictures help remind me that he is still really SMALL. He is so much fun!

Cute Baby Feet!

Eli's camera takes color accented pictures,so here is one, and it takes sepia tone pictures. I love his little feet, and thought they looked so cute in sepia!

FIrSt BaTh at HOmE

Grady had his first bath at home yesterday. If you can't tell from the pictures, he HATED every second of it!!! But he looked so cute in his hooded bath towel and robe. Hopefully he will start liking his baths, or else I am in trouble!!!!

Grady with the Hiccups

Grady ALWAYS had the hiccups in the womb, and the second day we were in the hospital he got them for the first time. It was so funny, and so cute!

More Pictures of Grady

Well, first off, Eli did that last blog, and did a wonderful job I should just let him do them from now on!! Second, so much for pictures of me and Eli. Grady is just to much cuter! Everything is going well, we are just adjusting to life with a baby and loving every second of it. He is constantly making us smile and laugh. He is still really little, but has changed so much in the last few days. Every second we realize more and more how blessed we are to have him! And thanks to everyone again for all of your love and support!

Grady's Here!!!


We welcomed Grady into the world on Mother's Day, May 11, 2008. He was born at 5:30 P.M., weighs 7 pounds, and is 20 inches long. He is a beautiful healthy baby as you can see in the pictures. In the morning, Brittany felt it was time to go to the hospital, and after a few hours of contractions, Grady was born.

Many Thanks!!

As the due date for the baby gets closer, and I get more and more excited (and emotional) :) I can't help but think of how blessed I truly am. Even though pregnancy is hard at times, I can't help but think every day how big of a miracle it is, and how lucky I am to be able to have a baby and be a mom! I am so thankful for all the many, many other blessings that I have. I have been so blessed with the family and friends that have been placed in my life, all of you are so amazing, thank you so much for all of your love and your support! And I feel especially blessed to have such an amazing, loving and supporting husband. I don't know what I did to deserve him, but he is so incredible and I feel so lucky to have him as my companion. He will be the best dad ever, (sorry all you other dad's)! :) Anyway, I just felt like I needed to share my thoughts and thank yous with all of you! So THANK YOU, THANK YOU, and THANK YOU!
