Grant's birthday party

It's been a month and I'm just posting about Grant's birthday- oops! Well, he is the middle child so we might as well live up to the middle child expectations, right?? December has been more than crazy, so I'm pretty sure he'll forgive me!
Grant had a fun birthday. On his birthday we gave him our presents- a stuffed Elmo, a Buzz Lightyear and a stuffed dog with a blanket. He loved them. We went to McDonald's for dinner and had fun playing. Mel and Urban were able to join us at home to sing and eat chocolate muffins. Grant ended up spitting his candles out and it was so cute! It is now the kid's favorite video to watch!
We had his party a few days later and his family came to celebrate with us. He was a little overwhelmed with all the people, so he stayed by me and was pretty quiet. He blew out his candles like a champ! Miles made him a dump truck cake and it was adorable- as always.
Grant is such a fun little boy. We love him so much!!

He was excited to open his presents, but was very nice to let us get a picture first.

He loved the Elmo and even said Elmo- which was amazing!

He loved Elmo until he opened up Buzz, then it was all about Buzz. Elmo knows how Woody feels!

Having fun at McDonald's.

Pointing to his awesome dump truck cake. Miles is the best!

Aren't those lips adorable??

He takes present opening seriously!

He always finds interesting ways to use his toys!

Oh, how fun! Grant is so adorable and we cannot believe how fast he's grown up. Wasn't it just yesterday that you and he flew down here and we had him all to ourselves?? I love the "lips" picture :) Wish we could have been there to give him tons of attention :(
