so proud of our boy...

getting greyson to write his name or practice his letters has been somewhat of a chore for awhile now. Even though he has been doing both for almost a year. i can't really blame him, he's four and well he would much rather be chasing grover around the backyard or playing dinosaurs (especially sharp tooth ones). but recently something just clicked! this photo was taken after breakfast when he decided he wanted to write our names and his on his art easel. completely by himself!! last night before dinner he surprised jim and i with writing the numbers 1-4 also. neither of us had any idea he has even practiced numbers before. we are so proud of you greyson!

and look what we found waiting in a small little package yesterday? it looks so tiny next to greyson, or he just looks really big! i am completely in love with monograms, embroidery, and personalized baby clothing. a girl is gonna be so much fun....
here's a close-up of the gorgeous detail:
p.s. thank-you to those who have emailed us to says congrats. and who have shared in the love for her name Ava. that will be her first name, but she will go by her middle which is luciana. i'm thinking she might be called luci a handful of times too! :)

WTG Greyson on writing your name! Today must be the day for that as Greg wrote his on his coloring page this morning. I was shocked! Those G's are not easy to write :)

That is such a darling onesie! I just love it!
