Other Photos

Just some of the other pictures I liked from the weekend.

Late Saturday afternoon we were trying to think of something to do with Grace. We decided to drive the 40 minutes to go to Patriots Place. We got there ate at Red Robin then walked around the Bass Pro Shop. We had a lot of fun and I'm glad we decided to go!
Red Robin, yum!

Lots of fishing rods.

Trying to photograph water has become a hobby of mine. I always love how it looks so different every time.

Sunday we went to a cookout, then went to Whole Foods, then came home.

A Few Photos

Just a few pictures from the past few days of our silly baby!

Grace apparently spends to much time watching Lily, because she thinks she's a dog as well and carries things around in her mouth.

I finally got a pictures of Grace's two bottom teeth!
Just a cute picture of Lily trying to steal Cookie Monster (don't worry no Cookie Monsters were damaged).


Video Time

Grace has become a chatterbox! This week alone she's learned to say up, Mama, and now Dada! She also thinks it's funny to roll under the table because Lily sleeps under it, and well...she likes to torture poor Lily.

Way Back When-endsday

I figured since Memorial Day was Monday I would use a picture from last year's Memorial Day. Jackson at the Memorial Day Parade 2008
sigh. How'd this little boy get so big, so fast?

She said it!

Last night Cole was walking Grace in the other room trying to get her to take a nap. He came out and was like "she just said Mama." I gave him the ya-right-face, then he handed her to me. She looked up at me and said "Mom mom Mama!" Her face lit up as soon as she got the "Mama" out. I cried and gave her the biggest hug and kiss ever. She said it a few more times last night, but it takes her a few tries to get the "Mama" to come out, but when it does she gets so proud of herself and smiles from ear to ear!

This is love!

Memorial Day

We had a great day today! First we went to the parade.

Grace wasn't to sure what to think.
Beautiful sky today!

After the parade we headed to my parents house for some yummy food. Cole and Grace even went swimming!

and swimming

and in the big pool with Daddy

Finally Did It!

Well, I finally broke down and made an official play area in our living room. I'd show the before, but it's much to embarrassing to share, which is why we rearranged it! So here's our new play area!
and just a silly picture to share...she'll hate me someday for this!

We went to Baby Danny's 1st birthday today, so of course today's picture is of the birthday boy!


Grace has her first boo-boo! She was playing in her room with Cole and I guess she leaned forward and hit her eye on the corner of the ottoman. Poor baby! I feel awful and it makes me so sad to see her poor eye. I know kids get lots of bumps and bruises, but they still break my heart.

Mean Mama!

Yesterday I tried to get Grace to crawl. Here's how it went:

"How am I suppose to reach that duck way over there!"
"But Mom, crawling hard!"
"I reeeeally want that duck!"
"Fine, I'll just eat the floor instead!"
"No! Give me that duck!"
"You're sooo mean!"
"I'm not talking to you!"
"Ha! I knew you'd cave!"

Needless to say no crawling was done!
