Sound asleep and holding her foot.

More Peas, Please

Gracie is such a good eater.  So far she likes everything she's tried...rice cereal, green beans, peas, and carrots.  

Here she finished a whole jar of peas and cereal for dinner.  
What do you mean it's all gone???

We can hardly wait to see how much she weighs at her doctor's appt on Sept. 3rd.  My guess is she is just over 20 lbs (and she's not even 7 months yet).  I think we need to buy the big girl car seat.

Just like Daddy

Mo' Money

Very interested in Mommy's wallet.
Ahh...huh!   Let's go shopping!

Todd's Farewell

Todd got a promotion!!!  Yay!!!  We're so proud of him.  Starting Sept. 1st Todd will be the Customer Service Operations Manager in Saint John.  Yep, that means we're moving.  More on the move a little later...

The wonderful people that work with Todd hosted a delicious farewell dinner at McGinnis Landing - they even included Gracie and me.  We had a fun evening and we will really miss everyone in Moncton.

Todd "T Ballz" Lee - 
That's right gang-st-a-s!!!!  Todd is a closet rapper.
Maybe one day we'll share his rap debut.

Here's proof or Blackmail.
Yep, he's wearing a fur coat, ridiculous hat, and a phat chain!  NICE!!!

Mmmm...Peas Please

Doesn't look so good, but mmmm....Gracie likes her peas!

Little sweet pea!

PEI Blueberries

Michelle, who works with Todd, brought us this HUGE 10 lb box of yummy Prince Edward Island Blueberries grown on her parents' blueberry farm! These were just picked this morning.  

We LOVE Blueberries!

We take out what we want to eat for a few days, wash those, and put them in the refrigerator. The rest of the box goes straight into the freezer with the berries unwashed.  Apparently, the unwashed blueberries won't stick together when frozen.  When we're ready for the next round of berries we just scoop out what we want, wash 'em, & enjoy!  
YuuUuuMmmM...pancakes, muffins, and handfuls of blueberries!

Back Yard

Todd said it rained almost everyday in Canada while we were in Beaufort (thank goodness we missed all that).  Since we've been back, the weather has been absolutely gorgeous.  This afternoon we enjoyed sitting on a comfy blanket in our back yard for about an hour.  I'm not sure who likes to be outside more....Tucker or Gracie.  Guess they are 2 peas in a pod.

Over Stimulated?

We're getting unpacked and settled back into life at home after our 2 week trip to South Carolina.  Gracie got lots of love and attention while we were there...not to mention, lots of toys!  Look at all this stuff and her "this is all mine" smile!

Huggie Blankie

Well, the apple certainly does not fall far from the tree.  Gracie is so much like her Daddy and Grand Daddy!  Todd and his Dad both like to sleep with a huggie pillow and it appears Gracie does to.  


This girl loves TAGS! Seriously, why spend $ on toys when she is totally entertained by tags on pillows, blankets, toys, etc.

Thanks PaPa for bringing home a few more blocks from HomeGoods.

Gracie also likes to watch Riley. Sometimes Riley (The Hersery Kisser) sneeks in a lick or 12.

Lather, Rinse, Repeat

Not only is she The Hair Club President....

She is also a client!

Yay!!! Our little Alph Alpha finally has a Sprout -
it's just a matter of time until she wears bows.

Silly Cereal Face

FINALLY! Gracie is figuring out how to eat! It took several attempts but she's getting the hang of opening her mouth, eating off the spoon, and swallowing (sort of)! YAY - hopefully sleeping all night will be in our near future now that she's starting to get a full tummy in the evening!

How cute is this face? She's so funny!

There's that Gracie Girl Grin!

Baby Jail

We helped BeBe get her classroom ready for the new school year. Gracie enjoyed playing in her pack 'n play while we moved furniture and put up posters. She even took a 30 minute nap while we were there!

See her new baby doll. We're calling her Baby G.

Watchin' the Tide Roll Away

We strolled down to the neighborhood dock this morning. Oh, I love lowcountry living. I could spend hours sitting on the dock listening to the seagulls, watching fish jump, looking for dolphins, and smelling the salt water!

Our Carolina Cutie!

Bedtime Books

BeBe reading "Goodnight Charleston"

PaPa reading "On the Night You Were Born"

Dry! Dry! Dry!

We look forward to bathtime every night!



BeBe giving Gracie a bath in the Big Girl Tub after a fun day shopping in Hilton Head!

"Hey, where should we go shopping tomorrow?"

"Hummm...wonder if Daddy is going to take away Mommy's AmEx card when we get home?"

PaPa and BeBe

Since Gracie has lots of airline experience she decided to interview to be the Assistant Director of the Beaufort County Airports. Kelly's question is...will she keep her desk as messy, I mean - as busy with important papers, as PaPa's?

Are you going to hire her PaPa?

One of Gracie's favorite places to be....sleep-snuggling in BeBe's arms.

First Date

SssshhhHHhhh.....Don't tell Gracie's Daddy but
Gracie went out on her first date with Mason.

We had a yummy Mexican dinner with Jenny, Mason, Dottie, and BeBe & PaPa.

Uh Oh - Gracie is making the first move.

Aren't they a cute couple?

Campbell's Shower

We had so much fun at Ashlee's baby shower on Sat, August 2nd. It's hard to believe that Ashlee is 8 months along and that Baby Campbell will be here in October!!! We love him so much already and can't wait to meet him.

Seriously, she's 32 weeks pregnant!
Ashlee, you look AMAZING!

Sweet Melissa...Gracie was so excited to finally meet Melissa.

The Pittmans with Gracie. They are going to be AWESOME parents!

We've already decided that Gracie and Campbell are going to get married. Here's Gracie with Travis, her future Father-in-Law.

The Girls...

Payton, Liz, Alyson, Ashlee, Melissa, Kelly, & Gracie

Thank you Liz, Trevor, and Payton for letting us spend the night Friday night. The buffalo dip Friday night and the Banana Pancakes on Saturday morning were nummy...really de-lish! You're hospitality is appreciated way more than you know. We'd love to have you come up to Canada and stay with us so we can return the favor!
