"A, B, C, D, E, F, G..."

-The Alphabet Song :)

Grayson learned his letters...well, some of them. He's so cute :)

This video cracks me up because you can hear Davis in the background being whiny and impatient, which is so typical of him right now. And you can see our poor exercise ball that got popped :(

"Cause I saddle up my horse and I ride into the city"

- "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy) by Big & Rich

Blythe Recap:
Leah slept in my parent's bed every night, she loves to snuggle but I don't let her sleep in my bed anymore :)
I love pictures of my kids sleeping!
Davis came with me to take this picture and she was so deep asleep Davis said "Mom, I think she's dying" LOL
We ate at Amapola everyday!
We visited Grandma GG (my mom's mom).
We played in the treehouse in her backyard.
It was very high
and awesome!
And we fed her tortoises. Grayson loved them so much he was like mauling them. I was afraid he'd get bit he was sooo close when they were eating.
The kids rode Pokey for a little while one night. Good thing he still has his long winter hair, Grayson held on for dear life :)
This is the first time my kids have seen a toad up close... fascinating.
I think Davis is thinking "too close mom, too close".
Actually Davis is the only kid who held it. Leah would try and gently touch it but would freak out when it jumped. That's the reason we go to Blythe, to let my kids experience nature up close and personal :)

And last but not least, this is what happens when you venture off by yourself:

"And I could tell that you could tell that I was takin' my time"

- "Shake it" by Metro Station

It seems like I've had to WAIT a long time for everything lately. It's a lesson in patience I'm sure.

About two weeks ago we made on offer on a new house... or should I say we made a re-offer on the house we wanted before. Last time the seller deceided to not sell it to us (after we'd had a signed contract for two weeks) and they were going to refinance. Well, apparently they couldn't and they re-listed the house about three weeks later. And even though I think they're mean for pulling out of our last contract, we really want this house so we made another offer on it. And so we wait. I've been told the seller's relator can't even contact the bank to check on the status of the sale until NEXT friday! And they don't even guarantee a final answer then. Patience is a virtue right!?

And then... I took Grayson in on monday to get his blood drawn for some tests and I had to wait until FRIDAY for the doctor's office to call me back with the results. I don't know if it's because I'm pregnant or what but I was going crazy waiting! Well, I didn't really wait, I called twice a day, they just kept telling me they'd call me back. The worst part was that I could see his results online, I just didn't really know what they meant, and I could see that one level they tested was below the "normal" range provided on the results page! Luckily the doctor said it was still satisfactory. Whew! So even though he's still one big rash, his tests have all come back normal.
Whatever, after Richard G. Scott's conference talk to day I'll take my rashy baby any day over the trials he has lived through.
And plus, Grayson's still the cutest almost two year-old ever!
