I think I told everyone that I had some exciting news....AND.....

I am BEYOND THRILLED to announce that I will be starting a new (PT) job tomorrow. The new job will give me the flexibility and TIME that I want/need with Grayson. I am so so excited. I was having major work/home struggles. I've never wanted to stay home full-time, but also didn't want to be working full-time + my hour long commute. This is the perfect place for me to be at this time in my life and am so lucky this opportunity came my way.

So wish me luck on my new adventure of working AND staying at home. 

We have been VERY busy these past couple of weeks. Last Saturday we went to Cornfest with Pepere and purchased fresh Apple Butter, tasted some homemade ice cream, and got to visit with some animals.

During the week I ventured down into the basement and dug out all my fall clothes and switched wardrobes. I also pulled out all my "nice" work clothes (I didn't have to "dress" up at my old job) and surprisingly had a decent amount that were still in great shape and fit. 
Score on not having to buy a new work wardrobe! 

NOT score on literally spending all the money on buying a new wardrobe for Grayson! 
Just's way more fun to spend money on kids clothing.

I can't remember when I did an official "Grayson" update, so thought I would do one quickly here

As of 12 months he was:
Weight: 22lbs (40th)
Height: 30.5in (75th)

*He currently wears 9,12 month shirts (6-12month in gap if the clothes haven't shrunk yet)
*12-18, 18 and sometimes 18-24month pants 
Kids' got some long legs..even though I think his growth is starting to slow down a lot
*10 teeth including 2 molars
*Says Hi, Bye, Momma, Dadda, woof, uh-oh, what's that, no, mine
*Climbs on: everything
*Gives kisses that are sooo cute. Sometimes we hear him start saying "muwahhh" when you're walking around and we literally RUN to you to make sure we get that precious kiss on the mouth. It is the sweetest little kiss ever. 
*Is getting the hang of his puzzles more and more
*Looks like he is trying to jump?
*Loves pickles - random, I know
*Loves being outside climbing around a playground
*Usually goes to bed at 8 and sleeps until 7am. It's wonderful. 

That's all I can think of right now. 

This weekend we finished off our fall clothes shopping for the little man  (I think), went to the playground at our development and then did dinner with Dan's parents. I was a little sore from cleaning out the entire basement Friday, which is kind of pathetic seeing as I work out at least 4 days a week. You'd think I could lift a couple boxes and not get sore:/ 

During the cleanout process, I went through ALL of Grayson's clothes/toys/ect. We ended up donating two garbage bags full of clothes. Don't worry - we still kept 2.5 bins of baby clothes if we end up having another boy. Even Dan said that the second one deserved some new stuff too. 

I do admit, going through all the itty bitty baby clothes gave me a  little bit of baby fever! Don't get excited. I'm starting a new job and in NO way am getting pregnant I'll live vicariously through all my momma blogger friends who are all getting pregnant! 

New Gym time. ahhh!

For the past two years I've been going to the gym on my lunch break. Since I have to actually dress up to go to work now, I'm not sure I want to have to sweat (not that I really sweat that much anyway) on my break. SO, I will be making the transition to morning workouts. I've done it before and really really liked it -it completly energizes you for the rest of the day. It's just the first couple of weeks that kill you -ha! 


After Church today

Why grayson, you look so enthused about shopping! Oh and don't be fooled by the hat, he only keeps it on for like .o2 seconds.

G's happy place - the playground
