Ready to Travel

When I was cleaning Saturday, Grace decided to pack herself in one of our bags. She was just so cute we had to take a few pictures!

Around the House

Grace can really get around. She is crawling at light speed! I think that she will be walking by Christmas time! She is into everything. We have not moved anything. When she tries to play with something that is not hers I tell her no and redirect her to something else. So far after a few tries she will move on to play with something of hers. Although there are days that she is very hard-headed, and she only wants what she cannot have! Well, here are a few pictures of her playing around the house.

The Bell

When I became a teacher, my Mimi gave me her bell. She told me that she would ring the bell only for good things. I used the bell a lot when I taught first grade. However, I brought it home for safer keeping. When I was cleaning out the hall closest, I found the bell. Grace has been playing with it ever since. She has so much fun and has learned to move her wrist to ring the bell instead of just shaking it until it makes noise. This bell has brought her so much joy, she laughs at herself every time she rings it!


Grace has created a new way to play with one of her old toys. She had so much fun playing, it took her a little while to realize that I was taking pictures of her.

Sooo Cute!

Grace loves to take pictures, but she does not like the outside. Well, she did great when I wanted to take pictures of her in nature. These pictures were taken at our church, the grounds are always so beautiful.

Ice Cream Anyone?

We went to Chick-fil-a for dinner the other night. Grace was a little upset that we did not share our food with her as we usually do. But they use peanut oil, she cannot have that yet. Well she soon forgave her dad when he got an ice cream. Grace was taking the biggest bits that I have ever seen. You can tell from the pictures that she loved the ice cream!

Happy Halloween

We went to the Flowood Park for Grace's first Halloween. It was fun to see all of the children dressed up and having fun. There were moon bounces and other fun things for all the children to play in. And local businesses setup booth to pass out candy to everyone who came. Of course, no candy for Grace, this year! The local fire department was also there. Melanie's church had a booth and did face painting, Grace would not sit still long enough to get her face painted. Maybe next year. Grace had the cutest ballerina outfit to wear, but it was way too cold! We are planning on going next year.
