She'll be Comin' 'round the Coffee Table

Grace likes to stand.  A lot.  In fact, she much prefers to stand while holding onto a piece of furniture than crawling.  Crawling to her is just a way to get somewhere where there is nothing to hold on to, a last resort if you will.  She is especially motivated by cell phones.  I hope no one thinks this trick is mean!  I did let her have it eventually.

She is getting pretty good at bending down to pick things up off the floor from a standing position.  She even took one step letting go of the coffee table once, falling immediately of course.  She REALLY wanted the lens cap to my camera and forgot that she can't really balance by herself yet.  We know that is only a matter of time, however!

9 Months Old!

Our sweet baby is 9 months old already.  She is getting so big!

She is pulling herself up on the coffee table constantly and enjoys dropping whatever she grabs on the floor.  We have to be careful what we leave on the table!

She can even stand with only one hand for support!  She is starting to take a few steps while standing.  She is especially motivated to take some steps if she can reach my cell phone.

One thing that hasn't changed is she still thinks Daddy is hilarious!

Hoppy Easter

Somebunny wants to wish you happy Easter!

How many shots does it take to get a smiling baby in a bunny hat? 

I'm not going to count

But believe me

it's a lot.

Enjoying Spring

This is Grace's first spring!  We are trying to do more things outside so we can all enjoy this beautiful weather together.  
This morning it was a little chilly and breezy so I dressed her in this GORGEOUS sweater made by my talented friend Amanda!  I especially love the Beatrix Potter bunny buttons that are perfect for Easter.  
Grace was in awe of everything going on outside.  There is a lot of construction going on on our street so she loved watching the big trucks going by and waving at the construction workers.  They enjoyed her too!
  At one point she just fell over and looked at the sky for a while.  Childhood at its best!
We also bought a zoo membership and plan to go frequently.  Yesterday we saw two baby giraffes only one and two weeks old!
