Radio Flyer Push Wagon

There she goes ... 
How cute are those little legs?

Ummm, I can't push it any farther!

Hummm, how do I turn this thing around?

What should I do now???

How adorable is this outfit???  The sweater is OshKosh from Todd's parents & I got the beige pants with the gold satin bow from Children's Place! 

Moo Cow

Looking for Greener Pastures!

Love this face.  Can you see all the drool on her chin?  She was so fussy yesterday - I think another tooth is coming in.  

Wonder what she's thinking about ...

Sweet Baby Grace!

Busy playing - look at how she's sitting.

Shower Crasher

Guess who decided she wanted to take a shower (while still wearing her onesie and diaper)???

She didn't mind getting Super Soaked!

Looks like we're going to have to teach her that GOOD girls don't wear WET T-shirts!!!  

Silly girl!!!

Tucker's (Empty) Water Bowl

Gracie's new favorite skill - dumping Tucker's water bowl in our bedroom.
Todd's new NOT favorite skill - soaking up Tucker's water with a towel.

Scoop & Giggle

We offered Gracie some Turkey, Stuffing, and Potato Casserole for dinner - she ate a little bit but enjoyed watching Mommy play with her food more.  I hope she doesn't remember these bad table manners.

Merry Christmas!

We are having a wonderful first Christmas with Gracie...in fact, we couldn't get it all done in one day.  We still have several more gifts to open with Gracie from family & friends.  We truly are so thankful for this beautiful little girl, good health, family & friends, and all that we have.  

This is a LONG montage (over 9 minutes - I've really put it together for Gracie's grandparents but if you feel like watching it all - I hope you enjoy it).  More to come...

Merry Christmas Everyone!

There She Goes!

Gracie took her first steps while pushing her car on December 20th.  She needs to hold on and push something and is wobbly but it is the cutest thing I've ever seen.  It was such a special moment for us and we love watching those little legs moving forward.  She truly is the best Christmas gift ever!

Sweet Cheeks

Mess Maker

Gracie loves pulling things out of her drawers.  

Socks, sweaters, and diapers all go flying.

Tucker the babysitter - 
he lets her do whatever she wants!

If you can't stop her - join her.
Tucker decided to relax on all the clothes. 

Huuummmm...wonder who is going to clean this all up?

Am I in trouble?

Gracie Wanna Cracker

What's for breakfast?

If Gracie is playing in the kitchen and we open the refrigerator she's there in a flash to see what's inside of those magical white doors. 

For some reason she likes to take out the A-1 Steak Sauce.  Maybe she'll like filets like her Mommy.  

Daddy brings home the bacon from this great company!  
Thank you for loving and supporting our family Todd - we are so proud of you and love you so much!

Short Cut???

Why post this picture??? 

And this picture???

And this picture?

Because Miss Gracie decided that instead of crawling ALL THE WAY AROUND the couch or chair that she'd rather take a short cut and "try" to crawl through the small opening instead.

And how did that work out for her???

She got stuck and was very upset!  Good thing Daddy was right there to rescue her.   Where will she end up next?

The Dishwasher

Still fascinated by what's inside the dishwasher.

Hopefully she'll always want to "help" load and unload the dishwasher!

Play Group

After Gracie's check-up appointment we went over to Tania's house to visit with our Moncton play group!  We both had such a great time (thanks for having us over Tania).  I really enjoyed seeing everyone, watching the babies play, and chatting.  Gracie had fun seeing her friends and playing with all of Eric's toys!  We love our Moncton friends!!!

Me with Gracie, Jenny with Hannah, Jessica with Joshua, and Tania with Eric  


Gracie saw Dr. Dufour for her well-baby exam and we're happy to report that she's doing great!   She's almost 10 months old and weighs 21 lbs, 1 oz (85th percentile) is 31 inches long (95th percentile) and head circumference is 18 inches (75th percentile).  She'll be seen again after her 1st birthday - ummm we can't believe that's only 2 months away!  Our little baby girl is almost a toddler!!!  Can someone please make time slow down!

Sweater from The Swannacks

I am WAY overdue in thanking Todd's cousin, Chip, and his wife, Nicole, for the adorable pink doggie sweater they gave Gracie.  We love it.  We can't wait to meet Charlotte and Bridget.
