April… (pt 1)

Wow! April is almost over and I do not know where the time has gone!!! It is crazy! I feel like Jack should just still be this itty bitty baby boy, but he just turned 6 months old last week!!! Oh my…

Here is what we have been up to:

April started out with some amazing weather, so we have had a lot of PARK time!!! Here was our first trip to the park with our Friend Dina and Sawyer(Dina is my bestest friend Terah’s sister in law and Sawyer is Terah’s adorable nephew!)

Then… of course, there was Easter!

Here are the four of us at my mom and dad’s before lunch.

Gracie, protecting her stash! LOL!


Don’t mess with a girl and her Easter Eggs! LOL!


Later, after the kids left… Grace got in some swing time!

And Jack… got in some teething time. Did I mention… back in March, the day before he turned 5 months old, Jack got his very first tooth! And about a week and a half later… number 2 came in as well!


So, that night after our wonderful dinner… I got extremely sick! And, when I say sick, I mean I was running a fever for 3 days solid, couldn’t eat anything, and couldn’t hardly take care of myself, let alone the kids! Then… Grace got it. That was worse! I can’t stand it when one of my babies are sick! No fun…

Thankfully, her virus was not quite as bad as mine, so she was able to eat and drink after a day, but her energy was just really low. The following weekend… we decided to try a trip to the park after Grace was better. It was a lot of fun! They have a brand new playground at a local park and it is AWESOME! Even I had a little fun…

So… there is still more, but will have to do a second post. More to come later! :)

I ♥ Faces! Week 17-Smiles!

Well, I have decided to play along at I ♥ Faces again and this week's theme is "Smiles".

Let me just say… it has become increasingly difficult to get a natural smile out of little Miss Gracie! She is into “Cheese” or some other strange thing that her daddy get’s her to say, and it never looks natural! So, when we were at the park the other day, it turned the camera on action and started shooting away! This is one of my favorites, by far! Hope you think so too!


So, don’t just sit there… go play along!

Gracie in her pillowcase dress(and her Jelly Jar)

Not really sure why, but she would not put the Jelly Jar down… so, here she is, featuring her Strawberry Preserves!
