We are trying to take advantage to the Spring days when they arrive. Lately Caroline has been decorating our driveway with chalk, playing with bubbles, and we have taken a trip to Odiorne Point to visit the beach, tidal pools and playground on the ocean. We also had a great time walking around Newburyport a few weeks ago.
Jackson was born on the larger side, 9lbs 60z, though I had no idea he would, or could, grow to be quite this size already. At 8 1/2 months he is weighing in at 28lbs. Josh took him to the new pediatrician the other day and the doctor announced "that can't be an 8th month old." He is an easy going baby thus far (once we clearly explained to him that sleep is an important part of the Gray household). Jack LOVES our dog Fred - he can be found climbing on top of Fred, into the dog crate, giving Fred kisses and attempting to use the dog toys as teethers (disgusting!). I have loved watching him learn to crawl, start babbling & can't wait to see him grow even more. However I am a little concerned about my grocery bill...
I am so blessed to have Caroline as my daughter...she is kind, smart, beautiful and makes me smile each day. The last 2 1/2 years have flown by. Now I find her singing all sorts of children's songs, reciting the alphabet and joking with me. She is even completely potty trained (it is great to have 1 kid in diapers again instead of 2)! Caroline loves to be outside, play in her kitchen and read books.
