Baby's 1st Christmas...

We're back from our 2 week trip to Nashville and Grady is spoiled rotten w/ a play room that looks like Toys R Us!:-) Gigi flew in to help w/ Grady's first road trip and man was he a little trooper! 4 stops and 14 hours later we arrived in TN! We spent the first week relaxing and catching up w/ family and friends. Daddy flew in at midnight on Christmas Eve and the festivities officially commenced! Although Grady's main concern was eating all of that colorful wrapping paper...you could tell he was excited, not to mention over-stimulated!:-) We spent our 2nd week at Nana's where Grady got his first taste of real food...carrots! We've since moved on to sweet potatoes and squash and man does this kid love to eat!!!

The week before Christmas, a dear friend of ours (who also happens to be a photographer) took some pictures of Grady w/ my precious nieces as a surprise for Gigi and let me tell you...it was a huge success! She loved it and cried every time she looked at it (which was about 50 times that day!) She said it was the best present ever...a picture of all her grand babies!!! Here's the shot we gave her... (Click on Grady to see the rest of the pictures!)
Here is the red car that Santa brought Grady...

Happy New Year!

Those are some great pictures of Grady and the girls. Beautiful. Grady has lost all of his newborn look and is all baby. He is a good looking baby. I love #35, he has a little elvis in him.
