So corny

Our sassy frass LOVES her veggies. It cracks us up when she would prefer the veggies we are eating than her own food. Her faves are green beans- cooked and raw, Peas- even the smushed ones:), cut up cherry tomatoes, cooked carrots and the newest is grilled corn on the cob. The Perfect teether. She is getting her 15th and 16th teeth currently and she loved the way the cob felt rubbing on her gums :)

Mega 80's

What a riot!!! If you get the chance you MUST go see Mega 80's, an 80's music band that absolutely rocks. We had the privilege of a late night out without the kiddo last Saturday (thanks Meema and Poppa!) and we saw them at the Intersection. FUN FUN FUN. Loud also, but the ringing in the ears was worth it. Olivia even enjoyed her first taste of REAL music. Rock On!

Crazy Gracie Rae

I just LOVE this pic from Auntie Lolo- I had to steal it for our blog too :) Anywho- to the point of this post. My crazy little Gracester, she can sleep like a Hosford and it baffles this momma every day. Tuesday I had to wake her up at 10:45 am- and then on Wed she slept until 9:30- and now here I am at 9:30 again and she's still snoozin away. She goes to bed between 7:30 and 8 pm so I haven't a clue as to why she sleeps so late. I am NOT complaining though moms- don't get me wrong. I laugh though because when she doesn't get this much sleep she is not nearly as well behaved as she has been the last three days. We went to the doctors on Mon for her 16 month check up and she weighs 28lbs 12oz. She is 33 1/2 inches tall and that puts her in the 95th percentile for ALL categories. Perfectly proportioned and BIG! She is old enough to start time-out when she is naughty. So dad and I were prepared to begin Monday afternoon. Now it's Thursday and Gracie has yet to do something worthy of time-out. I know it will come soon but I am a proud momma to saymy baby is so sweet- Just make sure she gets her sleep. Even the three hour afternoon nap she usually blesses me with. I love you sassy Gracester. Oh- on a side note- Tha absolute cutest birthday present a mommy could ever recieve was when Gracie woke up yesterday morning and told me ALL about her night and then proceeded to ask about her family, name by name, and lastly said to me- unprompted- "I lubbed chew mama!" I melted right away and spent the next few hours in mommy bliss.

Back from the shores!

Happy Birthday to me!!!

Thanks so much to all for the fabulous calls, sweetest messages and all the love and well wishes sent my way as I enter- as gracefully as possible- into my LATE twenties. What? I know, I can't believe it either. 27 years I have inhabitied this earth and been blessed a million times over through them all. I am very content at this point in my life, extremely happy with the place I am in and the people who surround me in all forms. I am LOVIN being a momma to our Gracie poo,

she brings me the utmost joy every day. I am even loving growing Livvy and housing her for the time being- although I am excited to meet her in august. God is great and I am SUPER blessed by him. Thanks especially to my darling hubby who took me out to the most fabulous dinner at Chop House to celebrate ME on my special day. I love you more than you will ever know, thanks for loving me so well!
