Presto Chango

As I look back over the past two months I realize that I have been a horrible mom of a 3rd child. I have far fewer photos of the not-so-little guy than I have of his sisters. Shame on me. So here he is in all his glory... at exactly two months today. Woo Hoo. As of yesterday, Grady weighed in at 12 lbs 8 oz and is a smidgen over 23 inches. He eats like a champ and is already in 3-6 month clothes. He smiles. He coos. And he knows how to sleep... especially during the day. Which leads to some long feedings in the middle of the night.





We've often heard that Grady resembles Sheridan ~ even from people who didn't know her when she was a baby. So I decided to put a few photos of the two of them side by side.
Can you tell who is who?






On another note, Sheridan was the happiest girl in the world today as she finally had her anti-thumb sucking device removed. The first thing she wanted to do? Chew gum.

They do look a lot alike. Except for the lips. And he is really growing fast. Here's wishing you some night time sleep!

He is getting soooo big, WOW! I love his little grin in the picture on the right, what a ladies man : )

They do look so similar. You can definitely see it is the gene pool, all your children are just adorable!

Yahoo for Sheridan, I bet she is just thrilled!!!!!

Glad you are home safe and all is going well. Hey, don't feel bad about the lack of photos for sweet Grady. I feel like I am a better mother in many ways to the younger kids. They may have less pictures, but I think in many ways they get a better mom as I more relaxed with them. I had many unrealistic expectations as I became a mommy, now those have all been shattered and I am able to just enjoy them. Does that make sense? Seeing pictures of Grady makes me almost want another one, O.K. maybe not!!!!!!!

Grady is just scrumptious looking! I love that cockeyed grin in the third photo. He and Sheridan do look amazingly alike.

And yay for Sheridan, I bet she's thrilled to get her mouth back!

They do look an awful lot alike. Wow! I can't believe he's 2 months old already, definitely growing like a weed. What a cutie. :-)

Congrats to Sheridan. I hope it did the trick and she keeps the thumb out. Let her chew lots of gum. lol.

I thought from your title there would be some info. about the move. I can't wait to hear more.

Keep those adorable baby pictures coming.

He can't be two months old. He can't. Just yesterday we were celebrating his birth. He's very cute. I especially love that photo on the right where's he's scrunching his face up. I love when they start to assert their personalities. He looks a lot like Sheridan.

I want to say HOORAY for a mom who will travel halfway around the world with three kids, one of them a tiny baby. OMIGOSH, you are brave and capable!

I'll be looking forward to your new adventures in India.

They do look a lot alike! I bet she is so happy to have that device removed.

First of all, I can't tell those babies apart, and I've tried several times.

Second, my son has a spacer in his mouth right now, and he's "saving" pieces of gum for when it comes out. Sad thing is, the gum will be really gross if it makes it the next 7 years!

I didn't know there was an anti thumb sucking device, my sister was still sucking when she went to school and for quite a while after that.
Sweet baby photos, all sweet.
