Throw Back to Baby Grayson

I was looking through older pictures and saw a lot of baby Baxter and baby Chase and the chickens… then I came across baby Grayson. I can’t believe he was this small. I could hold him in one hand.

Crazy how fast they grow (been told this happens when you have babies too 😉 ) Glad we have photography to document it. I just love their baby faces 🙂

New Sun Spot

Our baby Grayson is over a year old now. He has his own personality, own language and way he communicates, and he has adopted many spots all over the house that are his. His newest spot is on a new storage unit in the office of our home.

It may be the afternoon sun he likes… or watching the birds on the feeders on the tree outside this window… maybe its the little mat on the top… or the plants to hide in… but whatever it is, we now have a new spot to look for him, when we are searching for him. But wherever I find him I know I will get one of his cute little meows and he will let me cuddle him face to face. Love this boy!

Snow, Bird, whatever that was…

Our little Grayson has a few perches in the house that he loves to sit in. During each season he has different things to watch and he will use one perch more then others. Right now he loves this one as he can see many things. He has recently been enjoying the snow falling…

Watching the birds fly from the tree right below this window or the chickens in the yard.

And sometimes I am not sure what he is seeing, but it sure keeps his interest.

Its entertaining watching him be entertained by all the things he sees. It’s also cute to hear him make little noises with different things he sees and watch him sometimes try to go after something, only realizing he can’t get it when his paw swipes the glass pane of the window. I think he is calmest though when he watches the snow… but I can’t blame him that’s when I am calmest too 🙂

Heat Wave… hopefully waving bye bye

It is so hot again… so hot I want to crawl into an ice bath. On top of the heat our AC went out yesterday and it’s not fixed yet. To keep cool we have al the fans going, extra floor fans on, were going for rides with the boys in the car with the AC going, and opening widows around the house where the sun isn’t shining in to increase air flow.

This evening it is finally cooling and Grayson has been finding a way to stay cool…

He has loved hanging out in the windows. We have found him in different windows depending on the sun. I think its not only the air flow, but he has loved hearing and seeing different animals and bugs go by.

They say the coming week we are supposed to be in the 80’s again so hopefully that will help. When you don’t have AC or a commodity like it… makes you very grateful for it. Praying its fixed soon. Hope the weather is nice in your neck of the woods 🙂

Kitten Cuteness

Our kitten is such a joy and FUN! We have had such a good time with him and the dogs are enjoying his craziness too. They like  to watch him skitter all over the house and jump to and fro. What a crazy boy he can be…

Christmas with him was a lot of fun… he added a new level of smiles. His favorite parts were running among the presents, playing with his stocking, checking out his new toys, and chilling on our tree skirt once all the presents were out of the way.

My favorite part of having him is the snuggles. When he sleeps he melts my heart with all his little faces and poses with his little paws. And his purring oh my I just LOVE it… his motor just runs and runs and makes you feel happy 🙂

He is a happy boy and a joyful addition to our family 🙂

If I don’t get to write another post this year I want to wish you all a Happy New Year!

After and Between…

It’s a couple days after Christmas and a few days until the new year. In our house that is recoup time between the holidays. Our Christmas was nice and the kitten had a great but tiring first Christmas and is currently fast asleep…

Chase on the other hand humored me earlier today and put on the ‘Grinch who stole Christmas’ antlers and looks just like the Grinch’s dog Max…What a CUTIE!

Speaking of cute can’t miss a kitten in Santa pants 😉

Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

I have been avoiding my blog for a couple weeks because I had a happy surprise and I couldn’t post about yet. Why you may ask?? Because my mom reads my blog and I hadn’t told her yet and I wanted it to be a surprise for her and my step dad as well. So my thankful post this year starts with this… WE GOT A KITTEN!!!!!!

kitten

He is a 3 month old American shorthair and is only 2 1/2lbs. We named him Grayson Gabriel…

He is so perfect for our little family. It took the dogs a few days to accept him and about a week and a half to get used to him being part of the family… but after 2 weeks we have peace in the house and are having so much FUN!

Hubby and I joked when we were going through infertility treatments that if we didn’t have a baby in 5 years we would get a kitten… over 5 years later the running joke became a reality and here is the kitten…

Its a little taste of a baby as we get up with him, have learned his different “meows” and what they mean, have to baby him, get him special food, spend extra time with him, comfort him, and oh he is such a snuggle bug… I just love to snuggle with him.

And he is so funny. After thanksgiving dinner where he got some special wet kitten food he passed out in the sun. It was so funny 🙂

And he LOVES his new hide out box, but hasn’t quite figured out to get his tushy in to really be hidden 😉

I just love to have him snuggled in my arm. He is just so cute so I am sure there will be many posts to come that include him.

I am also thankful this year for my boys and the good big brothers they are being. Chase even shared some thanksgiving goodies with Grayson…

I am thankful my mom and stepdad got to meet Grayson and LOVED him and that hubby and I got to spend a happy thanksgiving day together with my mom and stepdad and all our animals that now total 19 chickens, 2 dogs, and a kitten 🙂
