Little fish

It's been quite the week for learning around our house! Grayson started swimming lessons on Monday, and this video was taken on Wednesday. His teacher is amazing--she says that he was ready, but I know it had a lot to do with what a great instructor she is, too. Today he was jumping off the side of the pool and swimming to the ladder all by himself--what a little fish! Way to go, Grayson!!!

Lilly lover

I've been meaning to blog about my friend, Liz's, business for awhile and now it ties in perfectly with another blog's giveaway, so I'm kind of glad I waited! :) Liz is the extremely talented creator of Brookie Cookie's Bows, one of my favorite Etsy shops. I've ordered several bows and hair pins from Liz, and she's even done some custom bows to match Emma Claire's outfits. Liz has now outdone herself---she has started making Lilly Pulitzer hair pins and clips!! Does it get any cuter than this??? I think not! Please go check out Brookie Cookie's Bows and see for yourself how beautiful the bows, clips, headbands, and necklaces are---I promise you won't be disappointed!
Now, for a giveaway! I'm a sucker for Lilly. I even had an entire Lilly Pulitzer-themed birthday party for Emma Claire last year, and I promise it was adorable and I would have taken pictures if I hadn't been a little over a week away from giving birth and missing half of my brain. Anyway, I was so excited today when my friend, Jen, blogged about Pink Preppy Lilly Lover's awesome giveaway. Go check it out and enter to win this awesome Lilly loot!

Look who's CRAWLING!!!!!

Well, Whitt is just full of surprises! He started crawling the day after he turned 11 months old and is ALL over the place now. So proud of our little dude! You can see him modeling his stylish "jiaper" by Huggies (yes, I'm aware that this is not cute at all, but they were on sale and I was so curious as to what they looked like that I just had to buy a pack. We have had the best time laughing at his jiapers but I'm ready for the pack to run out so I can start putting him back in regular diapers) and zooming across the playroom. This is just three days after he started crawling for the first time---not bad, if I do say so myself! :)

I keep meaning to post some comparison shots of Whitt and Grayson, and this is the best I have right now since I'm too lazy to get our external hard drive out and look for more old pictures of Grayson. Isn't the resemblance uncanny? Whitt truly is Grayson's little twin. On days when I have him dressed in one of Grayson's old outfits, I feel like I'm looking at Grayson four years ago--I still can't get used to it! I just love these boys! :)

Case in point.....
