Daddy actually got Grant to sleep all on his own before I got home that night. I'm not sure if he's ever done this before, so it was a nice treat. Although, I was secretly hoping he'd be awake so I could snuggle with him when I got home. Sometimes, I complain about having to lay in bed with him until he goes to sleep, but it's really one of my favorite times with him. He has his nights that are so much fun, but mostly it's a really sweet time together.
Saturday, Nana and Papa spent the day at our house watching football, eating, and then watching a movie. Mid-afternoon, someone made mention of Maggie Moo's and Grant just couldn't forget it. Nana and Papa offered to take Grant to get ice cream, and they took him in their Mustang convertible. I'm not sure that Grant knew what was happening as the top of the car rolled back. He'll want to ride with them from now on. They also let him get the blue ice cream (cotton candy flavor) that I never let him get because it sounds sooo horrible to me, so I'm sure he loved that.
Saturday night, Grant and I carved his pumpkins. He's been telling me that he was ready to put a face on his pumpkins, but I've been putting it off. All of the goop inside kind of grosses me out, and I'm no artist when it comes to this. If I'm doing something that I'm putting outside my house, I like it to look good, but this, well let's just say good isn't the word I'd use to describe them. We actually cut teeth in the larger pumpkin, but when I went to push out the mouth, all of the teeth broke off too. Oh well! Grant still loves them, only now he has to pick them up every time we go outside. Smashed pumpkin on our driveway is probably in the near future.
Yesterday, mom, Grant and I took a trip to Babies R Us to buy some things for baby girl.. actually to buy some things for other people to give me at a shower.. funny, huh?! I have to admit that I'd rather do it that way though, so I'm certainly not complaining. I didn't register there since the stores in our area are quite a hike, but there were a couple of items that I really wanted from there, so it all worked out. I'm so overwhelmed with the amount of baby stuff that there is, and how much of it is different from just 2 1/2 years ago. I'm also really in want/need of a double stroller, but dang those things are expensive. I know that Grant will be close to 3 when this baby is born, and lots of people keep saying let him walk, but you see he doesn't know that is an option. Ever since he was born, I've taken him walking at the park, to the mall, and anywhere else in his stroller. Because of this, he rides really, really well, and I actually enjoy shopping with him. Do I really want to ruin that over a couple hundred dollars?! I should think not!
