"People, let me tell you 'bout my best friend."

Big brother, Oscar, allows Grant to pretty much do whatever he wants to him! What a great best friend!!

Four months old

Happy 4th Month, Grant! Well, Grant is 4 months old now and he is officially in the upper 97th percentile for his weight and his height. Haha…he now weighs 17 pounds, 6 ounces and is 26 inches long! He’s my chunky monkey and I love every little roll on his body. : )
This month was a very fun month for Grant. While Matt and I had to work, he would go and hang out with his Great Aunt Kim! Aunt Kim played with him all day long and she even took him to school to help with her classroom before the school year begins. Grant also attended his first bachelorette party this month! I threw Mandy's bachelorette party at my house and Grandma Jenny came over to watch him…so he was passed around for a little bit until he couldn’t take it anymore and went to bed. Then, the very next weekend our friend, Nekisa, came to meet him all the way from California and took Grant to Hooters for the very first time. He even got his picture taken with one of the very pretty waitresses. : ) The weekend after that, Grant got to watch his Godparents get married! He sat in the back of the church with Grandma Jenny and quietly talked throughout the entire ceremony and then he even posed for a few pictures.
The rest of the month was spent talking, laughing and rolling over. He's such a happy baby. Matt and I are extremely blessed.

And the mess begins...

In order to keep up with my Muncher, we have begun to feed him rice cereal on a spoon. This has been the most fun adventure so far! I'm pretty sure that only half of each feeding actually makes it to his belly, but he will get the hang of it soon enough. In the mean time, this calls for lots of funny pictures (like this one provided by Aunt Kim)!


Grant is beginning to get a bit sassy nowadays!
*Note his finger placement. : )

My Baby Lifeguard

Grant is sad that the summer is almost coming to a close. He wishes he was on Hermosa Beach with his Uncle Randy and Aunt Sherri.

State Fair 2008

Well, it was the final day of the State Fair but the Gestl family finally made it out there! Along with Kristin and Matt Schaefer, we all walked around the fair looking for different things to eat. Of course a trip to the state fair is not complete without eating a cream puff, and Grant ate one for the first time! (Ok, or we just put cream on his mouth and watched him lick it off.) Regardless, it was reason for a few laughs and a super cute picture. : )
