Welcome 2009!

2008 was a great year for us. A new happy, healthy baby boy, Ryan starting school, and basically no major catastrophies! We are looking forward to another great year in the Grattan household for 2009.
Christmas was good, the boys were spoiled of course, and Scott and I enjoyed watching Ryan love all his stuff. He has been singing Christmas songs since October, and I am sure that he will continue to do so for at least another couple of months. I will try to get some video up of his school program, it was a hoot!
Marcus is growing like a weed. He has his 6 month checkup just before Christmas, and he is just over 19 lbs and 27 1/2 inches! He is really trying hard to catch up with Ryan! He loves to sit and watch his big brother do anything, and is very ticklish, so he laughs a lot!
Ryan lost his first tooth before the holidays, and the new one is well on its way in. He is the first in his class, so it has been a learning experience for all the kiddos. Marcus has finally broken his first tooth, and we think that the second one is close behind.
Scott and I continue working away at the same jobs. This year will mark 10 years for me at the Workforce Center, and 4 for Scott at Hilltop. Things are always changing both places, so never a dull moment!
We wish you all a very happy and healthy new year filled with fun and family. We hope to have lots of visitors this year, we would love to have you!

Halloween 2008
Ryan is REALLY into Star Wars right now, so he decided that he wanted to be Yoda this year. And who better to join him than an adorable little Ewok! Tanya, Marcus' day care provider made his costume w/o a pattern, and it was PERFECT! They had a great time, and Ryan has enough candy to last till next year!

Happy Fall from the Grattan 4!

Things have been busy around our house this fall, Ryan is doing well in school, and is currently in karate lessons. He really likes it, and just moved to his 2nd belt!

Marcus is now over 4 months, he just had his well child visit and he is 26 inches long and 16 lbs! He is happy as ever, even though he is trying to get a tooth or 2. He is doing great at day care, smiles and talks all the time, and is a great snuggler! We are all getting over being sick, but doing well. We are excited for Halloween tomorrow, and I will get pictures up as soon as I can.

We took the boys to the pumpkin patch and corn maze and had a great time. Hope all is well with everyone, love to all.

Well, the day has come that I had to come back to work. I really had a hard time this morning dropping Marcus off at day care for the first time. I know he will be okay, it is me that I am worried about! He is almost 11 weeks old, over 13 lbs, and growing every day. My mom was here for 2 weeks, and she swears that he changed a lot while she was here. He is a great baby, very sweet, full of smiles and laughs, and has figured out that he has a tongue, so he looks like a lizard some times.

Ryan is a great big brother! He started school last week, and is doing really well. He looks so cute every day with his huge backpack! He loves Marcus, and is a great helper.
That is about all from here for now. I am thinking about heading out early, I miss the boy so much! I am so glad that I have an understanding boss and flexability!
Love to all!

Hard to believe it, but Marcus is going to be 6 weeks old tomorrow! He is growing like crazy, in fact he weighed in at 10 lbs 11 oz last week at his check up. The doctor says that he is "strong like bull". He has a very relaxed personality, and I am really enjoying my time with him at home. Ryan will be home with us for the next month, as our dear day care provider that has taken care of him since I returned back to work in 2004 is "retiring" and going to work at the school district. We will miss her very much, and are sad that Marcus will not be going to CeCe's. We are hoping that we have found someone that will be as good for him. Ryan will be starting pre-k at the end of August after Scott's parents come and visit for a few days, and my mom for 2 weeks. We are looking forward to showing off both of our amazing boys.

We hope that everyone is doing well. All our love, and thanks for all the well wishes for the new addition.
