Big Sister Gracie Rae

Mommy's little cherub
Sassy pants!!!
Look at that innocent little face... a face that says I am and angel! Most of the time anyway!
Easter Princess

Guess who????????

Now only a few more hours till we can divulge our little secret........... you didn't really think I would tell early did you??? Praise the Lord for a healthy baby with all its pieces and parts!!!! Will be back later:)

It's a GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!! Baby Olivia Jean Hosford, healthy and still expected to arrive the beginning of August. She was a bit stubborn during her video because she didn't want to show off her spine so we will see her again in four weeks to get some more pics. All the limbs are present and well formed and she has all the major organs thus far. Her heart is perfect and we couldn't be happier. Daddy is pretty excited about having another daddy's little girl. Nothing quite like being the first love in a little girls life and having her unconditional adoration. Mommy always wanted a sister so I am just thrilled for Gracie to get to know her little sis Livvy. What a blessing for sure. Bring on the pink!!!!!! Again!!

Stay Tuned!

So no pics this time but just a note to say check back Monday night. We have our 20 week ultrasound on Monday afternoon and will hopefully find out what gender this bundle of joy is. Somersaults say that no matter what he/she is, it is VERY active. So quickly I forgot what somersaults and jumping jacks in the uterus feel like. CRAZY! Have a fabulous Easter to all and enjoy the beautiful spring weather :) Oh well, it WILL get warm eventually right? Less than two weeks till sunny beach time for us. Can't wait!!!!! Will write Monday night:)

Crazy Climber

So our crazy little nut is on the move ALL the time, and now she is obsessed with climbing. She is pretty good I must say but sometimes she bites foo more than she can chew. Oh well! That's waht growing up is all about. The above pic is her climbing on daddy while he was "taking a nap" and she is sitting on his head. What a silly goose. She keeps us on our toes for sure.
You give them an inche and they take a mile! Here is Gracie "playing" in the tupperware cupboard. She is allowed to play witht he tupperware. Little did mom know her plans were to empty the cupboard and climb into her new play house. She did get stuck at one point and scream "Help!"
Does that look like the face of a naughty little thing? Our crazy monkey is SO much fun these days and we are truly having a blast with all the new adventures. She has become quite the chatterbox, I have NO IDEA where she gets that from. She has taken to speaking in two and three word phrases already which blows my mind. But, I guess she's trying to keep up with momma. My favorite new phrase is when I give her something and she smiles at me and says "Thanks you, Momma". How sweet it is.
This was on a Saturday morning while momma was sleeping and Gracie had to show daddy her new trick. We are enjoying Gracie and looking forward to expanding our journey in August. Two weeks until we find out what this new peanut is!! And only three weeks till we are sunning ourselves on the beach in the Gulf. Alabama here we come!!!
