Grant Henry Kelley - 4 Months

I think it's fairly safe to say that I'll be running a bit late on these posts every month.  :)  My REALISTIC goal these days is simply to get it posted before the next month hits.  I've been good about taking the actual pictures on the 11th of every month (so far).. to show his true size at the right's the actual POSTING to the blog that I've been having problems keeping up with.  :)  Needless to say life has been hectic since adding a second bear to our pack.  So without further ado..

I'm also hoping to add a post about our Kelley / Maldonado family Christmas this year so stay tuned. :)  
Until then.. here's our very HANDSOME bear Grant at 4 months.

Grant Henry Kelley - 3 Months

Better late than never right?  

Right on the cusp of Grant's FOUR month birthday, I thought I should finally get on with posting his THREE month photos. :)  I was good about actually TAKING the photos on the day that I should've.. just not posting for a while.  That should count for something right?  ;)  

So yeah.. be on the look out for his 4 month post coming in just a few short weeks!  (December 11th)
I can't believe how fast time is FLYING!!

Grant's Newborn Photo Session ;)

A month and a half later...and I'm FINALLY getting around to posting Grant's newborn session photos.  

It's amazing the things that can get away from you when you basically haven't slept more than 2hrs at a time in 8 weeks and your husband is waist deep in new restaurant opening chaos (and most days you're having to deal with a newborn and a toddler alone).  I've been trying my best to function like a normal person but these last few weeks have been a blur of one day melding into the next... showering only when I happen to remember (gross yes I know.. ) and eating only sporadically.  (If only the eating that I'm not doing would help me lose that dang baby weight faster!) 

Although these last 8 weeks have been a true test of my patience (with 3 year old tantrums in full force at times) and a test of my abilities as a mother, Everleigh has proven to be the BEST big sister I could've ever hoped she would be.  I never thought that I could love this much or this hard for my two little bears.  She was a bit reserved with him at the beginning but she has ALWAYS so very OBVIOUSLY loved her baby brother.  

Taken just 6 days after his birth, Grant (and Everleigh) were super stars at his newborn session (him sleeping peacefully most of the time and Everleigh NOT being jealous that baby brother was hogging all the attention. 

So without further ado...
