Our Little Champion :-)

January 14 (PM) -  On Monday night, Julia, Grady Jeremiah, and I watched the national championship football game.  I began trying to hold Grady Jeremiah during the first half.  He didn't seem as interested in the game as I was :-)   We have heard that babies can sense when their parents are relaxed or stressed.  Apparently the little guy sensed my heart rate increasing, and he likewise began to get fussy.  Since Julia is not as into football as I am, she took him and he rested well during the remainder of the game!  I am just thankful that it was Grady Jeremiah, and not me, who was attached to the heart-rate monitor during the game :-)

Enough about football...  Grady Jeremiah continues to grow!  He is up to 5 pounds, 5 ounces now!  It seems as though he just keeps growing.  I went back to Auburn for work for two days this week.  After returning on Thursday afternoon, I could tell that he was bigger than when I left on Tuesday!  To help you see how much he has grown, we took a comparison picture today.  Regardless of which team you pull for, I hope you will cheer on our little guy as he keeps growing!
