Conversation With Dad

Grace is starting to ‘coo’ more and more ….and it is good fun when she does.  These coo’s are almost always accompanied with smiles.   It is hard to catch these coo’s and smiles on camera because she typically gets so curious about the camera that everything else stops.

She’s most active with the ‘coo-ing’ when she first wakes up in the morning, or after a good nap. Beacuase she’s not much of a napper, the latter is rare …but this video captures some of the best that we’ve been able to catch on camera. Not bad, next week Grace will be 3months old!

!!!BE SURE TO TURN UP THE VOLUME!!

So Many Pictures, So Many Videos …….

Gosh, this month we weren’t as organized and so many of our pics and videos didn’t necessarily fall into any theme.  So, what we’ve done is put up pages with TOO MANY PICTURES, and a page with TOO MANY VIDEOS.

Those of you who can’t get enough of Grace (Grandma and Grandma) will be thrilled to see all the content, others will likely be overwhelmed 🙂

Mom & Grace -Getting Familiar With The Big Crib

Grace has been sleeping in a small crib in Mom & Dad’s room. But soon she’ll be spending her nights in her own room, in her fancy big crib. Kathy and Grace have been spending some time getting familiar with the new environment!

This video is of grace on one of the practice sessions:

Yet another A+ Doctor Visit (and a social visit to mom’s work)

Grace got another outstanding grade on her checkup! Mom and Dad were positive that grace would be in the double-digits on weight? …but NO!!  Only 9.5lbs!! Still our little peanut. Everything continues to track very well!!

This visit was also time for a few immunization shots.  No fun, but Grace did well.

Grace finds her voice

Grace and Mom having dialogue …well Mom thinks so anyway. We think Grace is finding her voice and while never as good when the camera is going ….these conversations are good fun!

Trying to smile, and fun with new skills

The last few days, Grace has been doing pretty good on her new found skill:? smiling. Sometimes little ones, sometimes medium-big ones …very hard to catch on camera but Mom did a good job here taking this video while Grace was in her car seat. A little while later you can see some good fun on the playmat -with smiles, noises and some nice aerobics!

Time For A Fashion Show!!

Grace has been given sooo many wonderful clothes. But a few really stand out and they include:

-A handmade sweater and matching hat, made especially for Grace -and perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. Thank You so much Doris, you are really something with those knitting needles.

Here is the new "Mayor Of Munchkinland"!!!

Cake for Mom, Grumpy Grace …..

Mom’s birthday had arrived and Dad and Grace were not as organized as they would have liked. Fancy dinner plans for mom and dad were postponed -Everyone has been very tired as Grace has been pretty fussy as of late.  Still cute, still doing great -but not sleeping on any good schedule.  We’re trying all the smart things to get her on schedule, but not much luck.  Lately she only wants to sleep for about 30minutes at a time -we’re all exhausted!

Another Bath; Late-Night Aerobics and Misc Stuff

Grace continues to change everyday ….yet so many characteristics remain the same, -some becoming even more defined. She’s still very active at night and we hope to get her off of that schedule. She pretty much goes into hibernation during the day. We’ve kept her on the new baby formula that is supposed to help her be a little less ‘gassy’ and perhaps that is helping.

Just a few videos and pics over the last few days:

Here is a video of Grace doing bath#2 …you can see she’s getting a bit better 🙂 …and you’ll see she has already learned how to make a natural jacuzzi!
