6 Weeks Home

Wow, our sweet little Gracie has been home with us 6 weeks today. She is doing great and we are so thankful for so many things. She is such a happy little girl. Her brother and sissy are head over heals in love. ...just as she is with them. It is really neat to see the love between all the kids. What a blessing! I love the ages all my kids are at. Someone asked me today..how is it to have a little one in the house again. My response is always "absolutely wonderful". We all had two years to wait for this sweet little gift from God and we were ready! Amanda said to me this morning "mom it is soo fun having a baby in the house". It truly is great. Grace seems to change more every week. She loves to cuddle and give hugs to us all, she will just squeeze you tight. It is adorable. She gives us kisses, waves bye by, or hello. Her new thing is climbing. She will try to climb everything and anything. You can't take your eyes off her. She likes when I vacume and will crawl..chasing the vacume...it is so funny. She has only 2 teeth in. Her hair is starting to really grow. I try to get a bow in , but lately she is going through a stage of not letting me get any bow in her hair , she pulls them out. She loves when the camera comes out and will smile and put on a show. She is sleeping through the night and has a great nap schedule. She is starting to tolerate teh car seat...whewhoo. Lately she is trying her voice, and will scream really loud to be funny. After a while though it kinda hurts the ears. She say mama, dada, bay bay, pup pup, pretty is tttttt. Im still working on teaching her some signing...and she is catching on to that pretty quick. She is a complete joy to our whole family. Tonight I am feeling very grateful for my family. My husband is totally devoted to us all, Bailey is always being comical and funny, Amanda is always giving kisses and hugs, she will leave me special notes around the house telling me that I'm special to her. Grace's smile lights up the room. I could go on and on! Thank you Lord for my family, they truly are a gift I will treasure forever!
