Just an update :-)

Well, I haven't posted anything lately, so I figured it was about time. :-) Grace is doing wonderful. She is growing and learning so much. It is really amazing to watch!!! Every step she takes makes her take the next that much faster. Grace is walking these days. She hasn't perfected it yet, but she is definitely on her way. We went over to some friends house and they had some children. One was just a few months older than Grace and was walking all over the place. So I am sure Grace will be doing the same soon, and from the looks of it that is going to keep Mom and I pretty busy :-) What else? Grace is eating real well. Solids too. She likes peahes, bananas, green beans, peas, carrots, crackers, and well, a lot of other stuff. She also has a sweet tooth like her daddy. We have let Grace have a popsicle before. She liked that, but it was kind of a mess. Mom and I were having ice cream cones and Grace loved those. I think ice cream will be her poison. :-) It is mine and Pe'pe's. :-) Oh, one time while visiting Me'me' and Pe'pe' we let her try some key lime pie. Once we start it is hard to stop. :-) Grace really likes those sweets and she doesn't like when we try taking them away from her. Okay, what else? She is talking a lot too, these days: mama, dada, baba, bye bye, cya, and lots of distinguishable words, but she is definitlely on her way to talking as much as her daddy. :-) Thats okay though cause we'll probably just talk to each other. I can't wait!!! Well, I just wanted to update everybody with what is new. I'm also posting some very recent pics. They are real good ones. :-) Enjoy and thanks for reading. We love you Grace. You are doing great, and Mom and I are so proud of you. You are our angel. :-)

I Have Named My Heart....

Grace turns 11 months!!

Woah, time has flown by and Grace has grown sooo sooo much!!! Yesterday was Grace's first day in the "big girl" room at her day care. Things that are different in the big girl room are that, they take a three hour nap from 11-2 on mats instead of in a crib, they sit at a little table in a chair and eat their snacks and lunch, they all wear shoes (so that they can go outside and play), and no bottles! Of course, I brought her bottles as well as the sippy cups just in case. I was a little nervous about her moving up, but I knew that she would more than thrive with the big kids. I dropped her off at 7:30, and at 9:30 called to check in on her, and was told that she was happy and playing. At 11:30, I went to visit her and she was sound asleep on her mat. She didn't take a bottle to go to sleep, the teacher just laid down with her and patted her back. I went and bought Grace some shoes after this, then at 12:30 went back to daycare to check in on her one more time, and she was STILL asleep!!! Then, at 3:00 pm, I called again to check in on her, and she was outside playing with her friends!! oh my, so grown up!! When I went to pick her up at 5, the teacher said that she never cried, and was very very happy and well adjusted!!!! I am soo proud of my little bebe....however, I am sad that she has grown up so much already. Last night, after seeing Grace rub her eyes a few times, I decided to put her to bed. Up until last night, the routine was to make a bottle and lay down with her and feed until she fell asleep. Well, last night was a 180, she didn't want the bottle, and I just layed there with her and she shut her eyes and within 10 minutes she was sound asleep. Three cheers for Grace!

The Reign of Mama :-)

This last week Grace finally said Mama. The first time she said it in her sleep. I didn't actually hear it, but Mom said she did. Well a couple days passed and then Grace said Mama again, but this time while she was awake. So needless to say Mommy is really happy about this. It was funny to, because once she said it that was all she said. I guess Grace was making up for lost time and all the Dadas. :-)

We took Grace to her Me'me and Pe'pe's this last weekend. That is where a lot of the Mamas took place. Grace did a great job this weekend too. She was happy (as always) and she slept pretty well. She has been doing a lot better with her sleeping lately. Some nights she sleeps the whole time and other nights she only wakes up once. Mommy and I appreciate it, Grace. :-) Anyway, Me'me' and Pe'pe' really enjoyed the weekend with her. We went on walks and we played. It was a great time. Me'me' got to give Grace a bath, and they both really enjoyed that. Grace is so cute. When we give her baths she started doing this thing where she will lean over to put her face in the water, and then look up with the biggest grin. :-) She had done that before for Mommy and Mom told me how cute and funny it was. Well, she did it for Me'me' this weekend and I was in the bathroom with them. It is very cute. I'm happy I got to see it. Grace loves bath time. :-)

So everything is going well and Grace is doing a great job. Mommy and I love you very much, Grace. Thank you for finally saying Mama. :-) Mommy is really happy about that. Don't forget about Dada though. :-) jk Keep up all the good work.

Taking baby steps :-)

So this was an exciting weekend!!!! Our little girl took her first steps!!!! She was so proud of herself. Actually, the story is pretty funny. I was on the phone and Mom was sitting with Grace. I was busy talking and Mom had this really exicted look on her face. Well Grace was taking a few steps. I totally saw it, but because I was on the phone the fact I saw the steps didn't really register. :-b What can I say? TBI... :-) Anyway, once I understood what had just happened I also got the excited look on my face. Then Grace saw our excitement and she got excited about what she was doing. It was really cool to watch it happen. Now every time Grace takes some steps on her own she is smiling ear to ear. :-)

Grace is only up to about four to five steps, but she is on her way. Mom and I practice with her all the time. So before we know it she is not just going to be walking all over the place, but running all over the place. :-) I can't wait. Grace is going to be my jogging partner. :-)

Grace, Mommy and I are so proud of you. You are the best thing that has ever happened to us. We love you very much. Oceans full.

PS Viewers, we will get a video on here of her walking soon :-)

This a picture of our baby digging through the toy box at daycare. I think it is really, really cute. I don't really have anything to say this time, but I wanted to share this picture with everyone. Look at her. Grace is hard at work :-) Oh, to be a child again. Those were the good ole' days. Oh, I can talk about last weekend. Ma'Tee, Grace's grandmother, came to visit. Both Ma'Tee and Grace really enjoyed each other. Mommy (me too) was happy to see her mommy too. :-) Unfortunately, Grace was feeling the best (her upper gums are really swollen; she has a bunch of teeth getting ready to break through). So some of the weekend she was a little cranky, but for the most part she was her happy little self. She played in the bath tub and let Ma'Tee clean her up. Grace and Ma'Tee took naps together. Oh, also Ma'Tee and Mommy took a ton of pictures. Grace, Mommy and I would like to thank Ma'Tee for her visit and tell her we love her and can't wait to see her again. Hopefully sooner than later.

I'll rap it up in my usual way. Grace we love you very much and are so proud of you. You are doing great.
