3 Kiddos

So I think Grady's been getting most of the attention on the blog so I wanted to share a little of the other loves as well.
These kids are hysterical and I wish I would write down the funny conversations we have with them when they happen, because I rarely can remember them.

My dad came over the other week and we went to lunch and the park. He got a kick out of Wyatt's response to me. This is a daily occurrence so I guess I've gotten used to it:
Me: love you Wyatt!
Wy: love you too Mom!
Me: aw, thank you honey!
Wy: you're welcome Mom!

Last week, Maggie got my phone, which is a regular happening.
Me: do you have my phone? Who are you calling?
Mags: Noni! (Then to the phone) Hewo Noni!
Me: say how are you
Mags: how you Noni? (Now talking to her Elmo) Say hewo Noni. (Now talking for Elmo) Hewo Noni!

On a beautiful Sunday, we took the kids to Steak N Shake, then to a nearby playground.  Once we got in the car to go home, Wyatt's fit took over as expected.  Usually he just cries, "I don't feel good. Momma needs to check on me!"  That's what he always says and we're not sure why.  Especially since he says it when I'm standing over him disciplining him.  This day, however, he actually did what we always ask by using his words.  He was telling us that he was upset because he didn't want to leave the playground.  We were elated and started praising him for this.  I told him I loved him and he told me he loved me.
I told him Daddy loved him and he said, "I don't love Daddy, I only love you Momma."
So Kevin says, "Well I love you regardless!"
Wyatt quickly responded, "I'm not Regardless."
We just busted out laughing.  He had no idea he was so funny!

I can't get enough of them!

Grady's 2 Months!

Grady is 2 months old now! It seems like he's been here for much longer than he has.  I guess he's been a part of our family for as long as we knew he was coming.  He's growing by leaps and bounds.  He's already much larger than his brother and sister were at this age.  We went to the doctor last Thursday.  I had an idea of how much he weighed since we had been to the doctor the week before to see if he had reflux and he does.  He's on medicine now and it seems to be helping a bit.  Some days are better than others.  So here are his current stats:

Height:  25 3/4 in. (100th %)
Weight:  18 lbs.  (100th %)
Head: 16 3/4 (100th %)

Neither of the others were in the 100th percentile in any category at this age!

At 2 months, Grady is wearing size 3 diapers and growing out of his 6 month clothes!  That's right, he will soon be moving up to the 6-9 month size in clothing...hopefully he can wait until I get that size back from my sister in a few weeks.  He is sleeping through the night ( I was told that 5 hours is considered sleeping through the night).  He sleeps 5-7 hours each night.  It's definitely a blessing to be able to sleep some during this early stage.  Maggie was sleeping through the night at 4 months so I'm hoping he'll follow suit and keep on gaining in this area!
Grady has begun to smile a lot!  He's really a happy baby, when he's been fed!  He's starting to talk a little here and there.  He's super sweet and I could hold him all the time, if I knew he wouldn't be spoiled by it!  He's already not fond of being by himself.  He prefers the noise and chaos that his big brother and sister make available to him all the time!
Grady looks more like his daddy than either of his siblings. He still has that strawberry hair, but he's all Kevin!  He sometimes looks like Wyatt when he sleeps, but he's awake more and more these days!

We continue to be completely enamored with our newest little one and we can't wait to see how he continues to grow!
I'll try to post some pictures soon!
