Gracie update

Gracie is such a big girl now. She is learning so much and developing her sense of self more and more each day. She is a strong willed little girl who is always wanting to do it all on her own. She is such a loving, sweet girl as well. She is potty trained pretty well now and wears her big girl undies all the time. Occasional accidents here and there and sometimes she pees in her undies on purpose when she is mad at mommy and daddy. Who knew kids could manipulate parents so well at such an early age? She is 21 months old now and about 33 lbs. A big girl and tough as nails to boot. She loves playing with her cousins and spending time with her family. She likes to talk your ear off- for real! She talks like a champ, full sentences and about EVERYTHING know to man. She breaks out words that I can't believe sometimes and I don't even know where she learns it all. A genius for sure- do you think I am biased? We adore her and love watching her love on her little sis who she truly seems to enjoy at this point. We are so blessed with our girls!!

Livvy update

I can't believe she is already two months old. Where does the time go? We are truly enjoying our little Livster. She is a great baby, sleeps like her daddy and eats VERY well. What more can you ask for? She is growing fast 12lbs 2oz already (75th percentile) and 23.5 inches long (75th percentile also). She is perfect in all aspects of her health and development. Praise God for her and the joy she brings to our family.

What a great time we had on Saturday when we took the kiddos to Frederick Meijer Gardens. It was a hot one but the kids rallied and had so much fun by the giant horse sculpture, playing in the fountain, and driving the boats through the great lakes exhibit in the childrens park. They also had fun in the tree house but we missed out on pics :)
