Grady’s videos, 2014

Grady likes the cookies Sheila sent!

Grady enjoys some cilantro – and says “DaDa” but maybe not intentionally:

Grady hard at work:

Grady and some toys

Here is Grady with his father’s beloved toy raccoon that I wrote about in this post:

I have to admit, this snow day video is my favorite:


  1. Just a delight in every way πŸ˜€ Thanks for sharing Grady’s home movies Julia. I had a silly smiled all the way through. Gludgey’s story is truly miraculous. Who’d have imagined, all those many years ago the Drew’s own son would be playing with him too. I would guess you’ve watched your collection hundreds of times? Isn’t technology so much better for saving memories now than when we were kids? Hey! Did you know Video Group Skype is free now?

    • Yes, I’ve watched these things too many times to count, especially the Snow Day Grady video which I just love. I am so glad we have this free, instantaneous and easily shared ability to capture things on film. I didn’t realize about the video skype but I’ll have to read up on it. I did upgrade to Skype 5.0 which was apparently my problem in the beginning. Does this mean Alys won’t have to pay for Premium now? πŸ˜€

      • Yes I did love the snow day one too. When Drew is asking him to say good-bye and Grady offers a wee hur-rumph at the very end. I’m so happy for you and of course his mommy and daddy. What a precious little blessing to have in your lives.

        Here’s a link to the update. No one needs to pay for Premium. You can have up to 9 attendees πŸ˜€ Pauline, Alys and I hooked up for a chat yesterday and it worked perfectly.

        • WELL! That’s a relief, and about time, too. I put a bug in the ear of my well-connected DC peeps and told them that the Queen of Silicon Valley (aka Lady Alys) was being inconvenienced by those silly little Skype policies. They were horrified. “Disappoint Lady Alys? NEVER!!!” So they promised to get hopping, and I’m happy to see that they did. I didn’t even have to play the diplomat card (getting on the line to the embassies of Canada, New Zealand and Australia) or call the capital of the Commonwealth in Richmond to let them know that the royal friends of Lady Alys were not amused either. It’s so hard to get good help these days! I just know the D C of G would understand. πŸ˜€ Seriously, this is wonderful news.

          • You’re just a teeny tiny networking Ninja Wonder Girl, LOL. I salute you for all that arm twisting on our behalf. We’re too cool for school.

  2. Carolyn Miller

    I enjoyed the videos of Grady. He is so sweet. Terry and I are mimi and papa also. Thanks for telling me about the new videos. Love to all.

    • Thanks, Carolyn, I’m so happy you watched them. πŸ™‚ I like knowing that you and Terry use the same nicknames as we do. It will be interesting to see if Grady comes up with his own. My mother will always be “Granny” so that was out for me. Hope you all had a great weekend. You will be in my thoughts and prayers this week.

  3. It’s always fun to stop by Grady’s page. He sure is changing fast. Those Striped PJ’s with the bear face on the bottoms are darn cute. I don’t imagine he’s bothering with crawling now that he’s found out how to walk like mommy and daddy do. Have a wonderful day J, I’m off to work soon xoK

    • I am SOOOO far behind with posting videos and photos. I have some really cute ones to bore people with. At least if I put them on Grady’s page nobody has to look at them if they don’t want to. Those little PJ’s with animal faces on the bum are all the rage. I see them everywhere. It seems like Jeff got one for him that had a little crab instead of a bear face, in honor of Grady’s first visit to the beach. Grady is walking all over the place now and he’s getting much better at it. Hope you have a good time at work. I love your new street BTW – I was too rushed to leave a comment but it’s gorgeous.

  4. We are loving it too, thanks J. I saw your sweet face there, thanks for coming by xoK

    • I can’t wait to spend more time there. ❀

  5. I’m back! LOL, honest Grady, I’m not stocking you. Nothing could start your day in a nicer way than seeing that sweet face. Have you bout worn out this page too hon? The video in the ‘bear bottom’ jammies is so cute. When Grady tries to taste his shoe and mom says that’s gross, he really knows what mom is saying and throws it aside. Smart little man! xox

    I noticed too, Grady fancied the Aqua Mardi Gras beads best! High five you widdle cutie pie xoxo K

    • Thanks for visiting Grady’s page despite my failure to update it, as promised! The sheer volume of stuff to post I have is overwhelming me, so I’ll have to pick and choose. I do wear the page out. Sometimes I binge-watch Grady videos, which takes the edge of missing being able to see him in person. He’s like a different little boy each time we see them, because they grows so fast at this age.

      • Awwww, I can only imagine how much you miss little Grady.

        And heavens, please don’t worry about the updates. I may or may not have seen these before, but it’s still fun to watch his happiness, it’s pretty contagious as you know. xoxo

        • Yes, it’s hard not to smile when we see Grady. I need to post some of the videos while it’s still 2014. I can’t believe this year is nearly over already.
