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:

Grace’s First Pool Party!

Grace spent the day with her mom at a pool-party at Kris’ house. Good fun for all and Grace seemed to get all the attention and we know she loves attention.  Seems she may also take after her mom and love the water.

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!

Picnic and the Sierras

Kathy packed a picnic lunch, and then Mom and Grace met dad at work where we went across the street to the park and had a picnic. Afterward, we took a little trip up to the Sierra Nevada’s.

5 Week Doctor Visit!

Well, the A+ grades from the doctor are getting to be a regular thing. Today was a great check-up and we had lots to talk to the doctor about …some changes in formula, a mild case of reflux and a tad of help getting the poops a bit more regular. May sound like a lot, but not really, all very minor and she’s doing great!

Best of all, she is really putting on the weight!? 8lbs 8oz today …that is 1lb and 9oz more than when she was born. Exciting for sure!? But, also a tad sad to see our little peanut grow up so fast 🙂
