Splish Splash!

Ok, so I want to apologize for my lack of posts lately and I can probably say it's safe to say that until Sept. 4th my posts will be few in numbers. I am up to my eyeballs with prepping decorations and itineraries for the BIG day! :) Now I know it sounds like a lot of work, but I truly love all the fun prepping that goes into the party! Gracie has being so wonderful with all the crafting going on at the house, she has really been enjoying all the new textures and colors! :)

On a completely different note, Grace had me laughing so hard during her bath time last night! Not only was she splashing the water like crazy but she began eating the bubbles too! Oh how I just love my little bubble eater! She is TOO precious! Last night was also the first time she pulled herself up! What a night for little Gracie-Bug!

Today we have been blessed by a safe return home by Jonathan! We are so thankful! It is so good to see him! Gracie is cutting more teeth, this time its been a little bit on the rough side, so we invested in some baby oragel! Hopefully this will help! :)

All in all, we are pretty busy, but it's the good kind! :) So no complaints here! :)

Hope everybody is having a great start to their week!

Grace is Growing!

Oh My Goodness!!!! It has been over a week since our last post! I am so sorry! Grace and I were sooooo busy over vacation and with Jonathan's arrival back home on Sunday (so happy about that by the way *smiles*) it has just been a whirlwind! Well the BIG news is that our sweet precious daughter is no longer considered an infant but a TODDLER!!! Ahhhh!!!! Where has the time gone?! We were so blessed to be able to share one spectacular year with her and look forward to many MANY great memories and birthdays ahead with our "little" blessing! With her birthday party right around the corner I am constantly thinking up more ways to savor the celebration, feel free to leave a comment (or shoot an email for those who don't have a blog) on a favorite birthday memory or tradition! I hope everybody is having a phenomenal weekend!

Friends & Family Fun!

What a FAST weekend! It seems that as soon as Jonathan got home time has been flying by! We have enjoyed visits from sweet friends like Allison Reed, Libby Atkinson, Gregg Kite, and Holland Greig! What a blessing it has been for us to spend quality time with each of them. Not only did we enjoy the company of such wonderful friends, but we were able to spend some quality time with some of Jonathan's family also! Gracie really loved the extra attention and the change of scenery! If ya'll wouldn't mind lifting up Jonathan's Dad (Paul) up in prayer that would be awesome. He has a detached retina, so if you could pray for healing and speeding recovery that would be great! A big thank you to Jonathan's parents for letting us come visit and spending some time with our little sweet pea! :) All in all it has been a great week; we have gotten a lot done and have made some good memories! :)
