Christmas with The Paneks

We headed off to Warrensburg to spend Christmas with the Panek's since Nick was going to have to work Christmas Eve/Christmas.

It was amazing spending time with them. We got to go to the mules game and see Kates Dance, got to hang out with family from Clinton and enjoy the season.



 We even got to spend some Child Free Time with Friends in the City! 



Santa Breakfast at The Locker Room


This year The Locker Room hosted a Santa Breakfast the day after Thanksgiving. 

Downtown Peoria has a Santa Parade the day after Thanksgiving that comes right in front of The Locker Room so it was a perfect time to have it. 

The Santa Parade is the longest running parade in U.S. having its 125th Year this year. 
(Just a little unknown fact for you!)

Santa was there for pictures and of course it was perfect time for Greyson to be an elf!


We had a Great Turn out for the First Year! Greyson Loved Santa.. From a far and Grandma KiKi got some great Pics! 
Notice Greyson Reflection! Such an amazing Pic!

274 days old baby boy

Yup 9 months! Okay.. Well he is technically 10 Months; but since I just found this blog that I never posted but we will go with it.........

 So when does Baby G stop being "baby"

Everyday he seems to get more personality. More life.

We are loving having little man in our life more and more each day. I (well we) just love watching him learn and grow. He loves to explore things, try out new and old toys, and really loves books.

He knows how to make a disaster to the living room with his toys and I now know why people have play rooms! He is a pro at throwing everything out of his toy bins to find the smallest toy at the very bottom.

We went to our 9month check up. And everything checked out well!
They did their normal Q&A that made me feel like I had the dumb kid.
Does he say ma ma ma or ba ba ba. NO
Does he wave bye. No
Does he play patty cake. No (but we don't play that so maybe ;)
Does he crawl. Ok got this one! Has been for like 4 months. And walks on everything.
Does he eat baby food. Yup! Eats "people" food!

Okay so some of the questions make you feel like your kids dumb, slow, Ect.
Others make me see he excels in other areas. I guess when they ask those things it's really about remembering everyone is different!

Since then he has waved! Only a few times but he has done it. Sometimes I think he's just so busy looking at things, exploring, and moving that he doesn't pay attention to things he can do!

No walking alone yet! But he loves to push chairs everywhere. Tall Bar chairs, dinning room chairs, baby chairs. He holds on and pushes them for fun or to get where he wants to go. When he runs out if room he walks to the other side and pushes it back. A resourceful little booger.

He really loves Derby these days! Tries to Play with him all the time. Loves to throw his bone... and play tug with his rope.



Well everyday is something new.. until next time!!
