Tonight we all ran a few errands (yes, including Costco) ..eventually home for a nice dinner. Then, it was bath time and we broke out the new “Monster Towel” which was a Christmas gift from Kris. Note the tooth coming out of the hood in a few of the pictures. 🙂
Some good fun and Grace loves the bath and mom and dad must now keep a distance or get wet! A few good pics, be sure to check them out.

We didn’t do Christmas gift exchange until the evening of Christmas Day. Grandma Jo and Grandpa Phil came down from Oregon, Brian came up from Las Vegas and Grandma Rose and Grandpa Ray came all the way from Reno! Lots of simple food, conversation and of course the family gift exchange.

Well, playing with a new camera, some snow and Christmas around the corner have all contributed to us taking too many pictures –some good and some bad -They are all just “Day In The Life” of Grace the first three weeks of December.
You can view these in a number of ways -either by scrolling through the pages and clicking on the pics you want to see, or by viewing as a sideshow, or a combination.
Well, yet another stellar check-up. We know that Grace is no heavyweight, and we were very shocked to see that she is only 17lbs!? Up only a few lbs since her 6month check-up. **BUT** she has jumped up to the 20-25% for weight! That is great. She’s well above that for her height and the size of her head. The latter measurement she’s always over-achieved 🙂 .
Grace got a bit of blood drawn from her foot to check for iron level. They can check on-the-spot and her level was perfect –and she didn’t much mind the needle prick.
And, as always her love for Dr. Columbo continues. She certainly has a crush on him and he is great with her. As always they engaged in all kinda of fun interaction.
While we’ve debated and changed our mind a million times, we did give Grace the H1N1 vaccine today. She’ll go back in a month for the 2nd and final round.
And, Kathy brought a huge batch of cookies and a nice Christmas card for Dr. Columbo and his staff, that was really nice and it is no wonder why Grace is his favorite patient!
We got our first major storm of the winter. VERY cold and a decent amount of snow. It was Grace’s first time playing and she did great! We dressed her up in her fancy snow suit and went to our neighborhood park.
Dressed up and ready to venture out into the cold!
