We had a blast shopping in Hilton Head & got lots of things for Gracie. How do you like her new winter boots? She's almost ready for the Canadian Winter - she'll probably need some more clothes though. I don't think just a diaper and boots will be enough. Not to worry - we'll certainly be doing some more shopping before we head home (Sorry Todd).

This picture cracks me up!
Do you think she could model for Ugg Boots?

Bay of Fundy

We had a great day at Fundy National Park!  We went on a little hike, saw a beautiful waterfall, walked out in the Bay while the tide was out, and got a 6 lb lobster for dinner.

Sweet Dreams

Our house doesn't have central AC - we have a window unit in our bedroom and a large portable unit on our main floor. Over the last few weeks because the rest of the house is warm (80-86 degrees), we've been having Gracie sleep in her pack 'n play in our room.

Since Todd usually works late he doesn't get to spend much time with Gracie during the week. So tonight, when Todd went to bed, he got some extra special snuggle time with Gracie (and Tucker). Don't these pictures just melt your heart?

I love my family!!!

Sinky Clean

After Gracie finished her cereal this morning, I decided to wash her hands in the kitchen sink...well, then I ended up taking her PJs off and letting her sit in the sink.  She loved playing with the water coming out of the faucet - wonder if this will become part of our morning routine!

Rice Cereal

We were so excited for Todd to come home from his trip to DC because we missed him and we were ready for Gracie to start Rice Cereal.  

I think I made the first mixture a little too runny but Gracie didn't seem to mind.  She actually did better than I thought she would and was just a little fussy probably because she was tired.  We're so proud of her and can't believe how quickly she's growing up!

The Lowcountry

Well, it's way over due - but I finally put together the pictures from our trip to Charleston and Beaufort.  We had a great time and can't wait to go back again in August!

Sippy Cup!

After a fun afternoon at the park , Gracie cooled off with a refreshing sip of water from her sippy cup for the VERY FIRST TIME!!!!  

Centennial Park

Enjoying the Splash Fountains.
A Yummy Picnic.  

Look at the big bucket dumping water on the kids in the background.

A little hike in the woods!

More Water Please

We had a great breakfast at our favorite spot - Cora's this morning.  When we offered Gracie some more water - she helped hold the glass! 
Yummy - so refreshing!!!
We'll be trying her sippy cup soon!
Watch her little tongue - too funny!!!
All done - what's next???

Big Girl Cup

Gracie was really watching BeBe drink her glass of water.  So, BeBe let Gracie try a sip for herself!
Hhhuuummmm - this is different!
Gracie LOVED drinking water!

1st Fishin' Hat

Gracie's 1st Key West Fishin' Hat from PaPa

Gracie can't wait to go fishing with PaPa - 
Wonder if PaPa will actually let her catch a fish or if he'll be the 1st one to the fighting chair!
She's a KEEPER!!!!

BeBe is Here!

Picking BeBe up at the airport!!!

Calling Daddy

Todd is away on a business trip.  Gracie misses her Daddy and can't wait to talk with him on the phone!  Hurry back home Daddy!
Practicing her "sweet voice" to make sure Daddy will bring her something back from his trip to DC.

Mommy moment

I love to snuggle with Gracie before laying her down for bed.  It's moments like this when I want time to just stand still!  There's nothing better than cuddling a sleepy baby!

Sitting Up

Gracie started sitting up on July 10th (she's 5 months old) and is growing up too fast!  She's still a little wobbly but loves seeing everything from this new perspective.   

We thought this one was too cute!

Bounce or Snooze

Everyday it's something new...
This morning Gracie couldn't decide if she wanted to keep jumping or if she was ready for her mid-morning nap.  What do you think?
Well, I guess she finally decided to sleep!

Our 4th!

Happy 4th of July!!!

Since Gracie can't eat BBQ yet, 
she decided to eat her toes instead!

Hey Tucker - can you pick me up?

Special Time with Daddy!

Wait a minute - I'm not a U.S. Citizen yet!
