10 Months!!!

Just two short months before our baby girl will be one year old (insert tears here)!!

Ella Grace, here is what you've been up to this past month:

-You weigh 19 pounds.
-You are 27.5 inches long.
-You wear size 3 diaper.
-You wear size 6-12 month or 9 month clothes. You are wearing size 12 month pajamas.
-You have two teeth and we're just waiting for more to pop through.
-You can crawl backwards and scoot like crazy. You also get on all fours and rock, but you haven't quite mastered crawling forward yet. Any day now!
-You "talk" all the time! You can say ma ma, da da, ba ba and la la. We think you're definitely going to be a talker!
-You absolutely adore your brother and he can make you laugh like no other. I know you'll be the best of friends.
-You sleep from 7pm-7am and take two naps each day, usually at 9am and 1pm.
-You take a bottle about every 3 hours.
-You love to feed yourself and are not too interested in baby food these days. Your favorite foods right now are blueberries (cut in half), green beans, cheese and puffs.
-Your hair has started to come in more and is very light blonde. Mommy still puts you in big bow headbands though so who needs hair?!
-You love to play with toys and chew on everything. Your favorite toys are kind that play music.
-You absolutely adore music of any kind and immediately start bobbing your head and moving back and forth when you hear it! It's the cutest thing!!
-You are the happiest, sweetest baby ever and smile all the time. The only time you are unhappy is if you're not feeling well. You are even happy if we have to wake you up!
-We love you baby girl!!!

Preschool Easter Egg Hunt!!

Today was such a fun day at Grayson's school! They had their annual Easter egg hunt and party!!
Ella Grace and I were so happy we could be there to share in the festivities!!

First off was the hunt! Grayson was hardly able to hold in his excitement and anticipation!






He found his twelve eggs and immediately wanted to open them up and see what was inside!!


And the first egg he opened was a pretty ring, which this sweet boy walked over and gave to his Mommy!!! Totally melted my heart!!

Then, he found some other goodies he was more interested in...like chocolate!!

The entire two's and toddler's group!!

After the egg hunt we went inside for a yummy snack and more treats! This guy was thrilled when he saw the cupcake!! He definitely has a sweet tooth like his Momma!!

So thankful for these two sweeties and this wonderful day we shared together!

Life Lately!!

This girl is growing so fast and gobbling up every kind of food we put in front of her! 
And she is so happy all the time which in turn makes us super happy!


Grayson is really enjoying his soccer games!!

His team the sharks are doing great! 
(And how cute is that shark patch the coaches gave them for their jerseys!)

Speaking of cute...look at these two cutie pies! Grayson and his friend Drew.

Enjoying life with our little ones and thanking God for each day together!!!
