Oh the joy of motherhood...

When I think back at the last 4 1/2 months I am completly and utterly thankful for the gift that God has given Adam and I. But some days I dream just to stay clean!!! Yesterday Gracie was calmly sitting on my lap and I felt a warm puddle forming so I lifted Grace up to find poop all over me. If you have ever seen a breastfed baby's poop you will know that it is quite runny and yellow and just really pretty grose. As if it couldn't worse, this morning I was lifting Grace above my head playing airplane and yup... I got thrown up on. I just started laughing so hard and Grace just smiled like as if she was saying, "Gotcha mamma". So that means later today I need to laundry... the neverending pile of laundry. Watch out Oxi Clean here I come!!

Oh the joy of motherhood. :)

Gracie's toe fetish...

My daughter is so funny! She has been pulling at her feet for a while now... well lately its all she wants. If she can't get her feet into her mouth she gets pretty upset and frustrated, but it is so cute! Here is a picture of Grace sucking on her feet while sleeping... yes you heard right... WHILE SLEEPING! Either I am going to have a gymnast on my hands or some weird exotic dancer. Hopefully a gymnast! :)

Back from Ohio...

Well we are back from our 12 day adventure in Ohio! Adam had to go to Columbus and Toledo, OH for work and we have friends (Rob, Kelly, thier daughter Hannah and Kelly's 24 week pregnant belly with Baby Conner inside!) that live in Toledo so Grace and I decided to go along. Rob worked with Adam at Cardinal for a couple years before they moved back home to be closer to their families. We also lived in the same apartment complex as them when we first moved up here so we hung out a lot.

Anyway, the trip went really well and we had a blast with the kiddos. Hannah turns one this Saturday and she is into everything! We even caught her fishing in the toliet at one point!! They had Hannah's first birthday party last weekend while we were there and we had a lot of fun... see below a pic of Hannah eating her own cake! We went to a Toledo Mud Hens game (their minor league baseball team), ate at a Hungarian Restuarant called Tony Pacos where we had Chili Dogs and Paprikas (prononced Papikash). You would know it if you have ever been to Toledo. We also went to Lake Erie and enjoyed the wonderfully cool 70 degree weather and ate outside at a great Seafood restuarant! We got to see another friend that Adam and Rob worked with, Emily! She lives in Cleveland so she drove over for a couple nights to see us! We also helped Rob and Kelly move into their very first home (they have been building a house... it is beautiful... I just wish I had their basement!) Grace also did great on the plane both ways. She slept and ate most of the time. I think the plane makes her sleepy with all the noise and it just soothed her right to sleep. She only got fussy when we were decending back into Dallas but it only lasted a few minutes (THANKFULLY!).

Well I better run... I have lots to do... unpack, laundry, grocery shop! I guess I need a vacation from my vacation! :)

Here are some pics of our trip!

Adam and Grace sleeping on the plane... how cute!!

This is Rob, Kelly and Hannah on the left and our friend Emily on the right.

Lisa, Adam and Grace

4 months old... and growing!

My brave girl had her 4 month old shots yesterday. To my suprise she didn't cry after the first shot, in fact she was laughing, but that changed when they gave her the second and third shots. However she didn't cry near as long and hard as she did at her 2 month shot appointment.

Grace is a healthy little girl. She weighed in at 14 pounds and 10 ounces and was 26 inches long (which puts her in the 75 percentile for other 4 month olds)! So she has gained 6 pounds and grown 4 inches since she was born... my little weed!

Now at 4 months old this is what my baby girl is doing:
1. Rolling from her back to belly and belly to back pretty frequently
2. Laughing out loud... which I love
3. Sleeping anywhere from 10-12 hours at night and taking 2 good naps a day
4. Wearing 3-6 month old clothes (but some of them are getting tight in the long girl)
5. Grasping anything near her and putting it in her mouth (toys, hands, stuff that is mommy's and daddy's!)
6. Trying to crawl...she will pull her back legs up like she is trying to crawl
7. Loves the bath and the pool... she is working on her tan with mommy
8. Has tried rice cereal and isn't too sure of it (see pic below!)
9. Tries to get her toes in her mouth all the time... she already pulls her socks daily so I've given up on them (see pic below)
10. Looks more and more like her daddy every day, but has mommy's blue eyes!
Here are a couple recent pics of Gracie! Enjoy!

Notice only 1 sock! :)

1st taste of rice cereal... "yuck mom... give me the boob"

Yummy... gummy worms!

I think Grace is ready for food... she was really wanting Adam's gummy worms. When we tried to take the bag out of her hands she wasn't too happy! Gracie goes to her 4 month appointment tomorrow and we are going to ask the doctor about starting cereal! She is growing up!

Today Adam & I have been married 3 wonderful years. I can't believe how time flies. Our first date was 5 years and 9 months ago (Sept. 7, 2000). We got engaged after 2 years of dating (Sept. 20, 2002) and married 9 months later.

After 2 years and 3 days of marriage (June 10, 2005) we found out that we were pregnant! And after 2 years and 8 months of marriage we had a beautiful baby girl.

What a world wind of blessings. Adam & I have been so lucky to be surrounded by great friends and family. We are truly blessed. Here is a photo of Adam & I at our wedding 3 short years ago.

Play day!

This is Molly (8 months) and Gracie (3.5 months) hangin' out with her new toy. The girls are practically the same size now!Gracie just hangin' around the house! :)
She got a jumper that hangs from the door and she loves it! Although she doesn't really jump yet, she enjoyed just hanging out. Oh and she couldn't figure out how to get her hands out.

Daddy and Gracie!

Isn't this cute. Daddy and Gracie just hanging out talking. I am very lucky to have such a wonderful husband that loves his daughter so much. It just reminds me why I fell in love with him in the first place.
