Playing with Elliott!

Monday nights Kari and I got to Allison's to watch "The Hills" and let the boys play!!! There playing consists of them sitting next to each other :) Elliot can only last so long before he gets bored probably because Grayson falls asleep on him! Not too much longer before they will be able to interact more!!

They look like they are just having the time of their lives!!! HAHAHA!

Hello my Little Monkey!

My Smiley Boy!!!
Here's Grayson laying on his Monkey Mat that his MawMaw and PawPaw got him! Its sooo soft and Grayson actually fell asleep on it!!!

Grayson is starting to wiggle wiggle!!! It's getting harder to get a picture in focus!

This is a funny face... it's like he's saying... What is that funny thing that flashes in my face all the time??


Daddy picked out Grayson's outfit today!!! He's too cute!!! Grayson is wearing a onsie that Wyatt is letting him borrow!! It's been so fun putting him in all these new outfits!!!

Grayson is getting so big! we took him to the doctor's on Monday becuase he has a little bit of a cold ... he weighed in at 11 lbs 9 oz! His hair is starting to grow and he is a little fuzz-head! SO cute!

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

Grayson found his thumb!!! He loves sucking on his thumb!!! he fell asleep with his thumb in his mouth... so cute and sweet!
Last night was the first night that it snowed!!! It's defintely colder and windy! We have to bundle Grayson up with lots of blankets going to and from the car. :) Below are just a couple pics of my parents backyard of the snow.

Grayson supports his troops!

Camber gave Grayson some of Wyatt's old clothes to borrow!! That was sooo nice of Camber. One outfit that Wyatt never got to wear becuase the season was too hot was this adorable little overalls outfit. The best thing about it is that is says "1st Squadron" on the t-shirt and overalls which i'm pretty sure is the squardon that Jeff (Camber's Hubby) is in! We got to meet Jeff and become friends with him before he went to Iraq in December / January! Jeff is a great husband and even though he has to be a dad from a far for the first year we know that he's doing a great job! Jeff - THANK YOU for your sacrifce to serve our country!!! We are praying for your continued safety while your over-seas, praying for comfort on those long hard days!!! Thank you again Jeff!!! Can't wait for you to be home with your family hopefully by Christmas!!!
Grayson Supports the Troops :) One in particular!

Here's a picture of Jeff that he had posted on his facebook of him in Iraq!
Here's a picture of Jeff and Camber with Wyatt when he was probably a week old! Now Wyatt is 7 or 8 months!!! Jeff was able to come home for the birth of Wyatt but then had to go back after 2-3 weeks. The things our troops sacrifice!
Camber - you are an amazing mom!!! I now know the hardwork that comes with being a mom! I can't believe you have had to do the long nights alone! Your sacrifice to support your husband is big and much appreciated! You have done a great job with Wyatt!
Please continue to keep the Sheppard family in your prayers as the are hopfully starting to see a small light at the end of the tunnel! Camber and Jeff have become great friends of ours and we treasure the blessings they have been in our lives!!!


Last night was AMAZING!!! Grayson ate at 10:00 pm and went right down to bed...then to much my surprise... I woke up for the first time at 6:40 AM!!!! I was like wait I didn't get him at three??? What's going on??? is he ok??? And he was!!!
So we real quick got him out of bed before he started crying as a reward :) Hehehe!
We are so incredibly blessed to have such a good boy!!! I'm so proud of him! I'm just litterally praying to Jesus... "Please don't let it be a fluke! Please don't let it be a fluke!"
Even if it is... it was great to have a full night of sleep!

Our Little MONKEY!!!!

Today was Family of Christ's Fall festival and TRUNK or TREAT! Pretty much people decorate their trunks and the kids walk from trunk to trunk in the parking lot and get candy! Grayson got to wear his monkey costume!!! he's sooo cute! Look at that little lip!
Grayson pretty much slept the whole time in the trunk :) People didn't realize he was a baby till he moved! It was funny! They thought he was too cute!!!

Look at his little monkey belly!!! I love this costume!

Here's a picture of the trunk!! Grayson was in the middle in his bouncy chair! He was in a Jungle!
Matt and Katelin!
Katelin and Grayson!
Josh was GI JOE!
Matt and I tried to dress like Jungle people in our leopard print togas! People thought we were pebbles and bambam or cavemen but we were trying to go for Tarzan and Jane... oh well we still had fun!!!

Grayson is 2 months!!!

Grayson is officially 2 months in Matt's book :) He doesn't go by the 8 weeks count...he goes by the 15th of every month! SO Congrats to us... we have survived a full 2 months!!!
We had to bring Grayson for his 2 month check up yesterday... Grayson is now weighing in at 10 lbs 15 1/2 oz!!! What a big boy!!! He is 22 1/2 inches long too! Pretty much weight, height, and head size percentiles he sits right at the 40% percentile.

He also had to get his 2 month vaccines :( BOO!!! He did so good in the doctor's office... he was smilely and just looking around then all of the sudden... PRICK... WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ME????!!!!????? I have never seen him turn such a shade of purple and red! It was horrible for me becuase I HATE that I can't communicate to him that it will be over soon. The rest of the day he was fussy and had to be held and didn't want his little legs to move or he would scream! Poor little guy! I gave him Tylenol and that helped him fall asleep on Matt's chest... his FAVORITE place to sleep :)
He did have a good night! Grayson now only wakes up once during the night around 3:30 or 4:00 and then again at 7:00. I love that schedule!!!

The pictures posted today are off of Matt's iphone!!! He is too cute!! I love his smile!!!
