Gracie wanted to get Miss Taylor one for her first birthday as well. Here is Taylor's. I LOVE hers as well.
See what I mean...they are both sooo cute, yet different. I love the bright colors in hers.
Thanks again, Keri!! Check out her blog and all of the cute things she makes!!

I have better pictures (and videos) on my camera, but I haven't uploaded them yet, so these will have to do for now.
I bought some outfits for Gracie to wear this past week and I couldn't get over that I was buying 3 Month onesies!!! I am soo used to her wearing newborns, which she can still wear some of!!
We weighed her this weekend and she was 11lbs 9ozs!! Chunk!!! We go to the dr Thursday for our 2 month shots =( and I am anxious to see how much she weighs then. She definitely loves her food and does not miss a feeding...even at night!!! It is hard on this Momma getting up 2 times during the night then working all day. I am hoping she starts sleeping more soon!!! I have been up since 3:30 this morning and its going to make for a long long day. I wouldn't have it any other way though!! =)
She has become a fan of the TV here lately. It amazes me how tv can entertain them at such a young age!! Ohh goodness I already have some of the songs from the shows on Nick Jr stuck in my head! lol!!
Here are some pictures of my little sweetie... I'm sure you moms know how hard it is to get a 2 month old to look at the camera, not to mention keep them sitting up! lol!! i will post better ones and videos soon!!!

Of course we had to have a photo shoot this morning for our first day at the sitters. Her shirt says..."Say hello to.... Ms Wonderful"
I couldn't agree with that anymore!! :)

We came back to Mom and Dads on Tuesday to help mom out with dad. It has been soo nice getting to spend lots of time with them over the past couple of months. I am really going to miss seeing them so much. I am working on getting Josh to move us to Arkansas.... its 50/50 now, so hopefully in the next couple of years we'll make the move and be closer to them!
Dad is doing much better and I know Gracie being here has helped him alot. He can't get around that well, so unless hes at therapy, the majority of his time is spent in bed. I'll walk past his room and he'll ask where she is. If shes awake he wants me to bring her in and he'll talk to her and hold her little hand. Of course when she smiles at him it just makes his day. She is smiling more and more and trying her hardest to get a laugh out. You can tell shes trying to get it out, but its not coming just yet! She does let out some cute squeals!!!
Here is a video I recorded Tuesday morning before we left for Heber. She LOVES her changing table! My friend Sarah got us the cutest canvas and it hangs over her changing table. It catches her eye as soon as we lay her on the changing pad! Excuse the baby talk...that's the majority of the way I talk these days! HAHA
Shes always soo alert when shes awake and those eyes are always wide open! She doesn't want to miss out on a thing and hates not being able to look around!
I got the rest of our pictures back from Gracie's 4 week photo shoot. Micheal did such a great job, as always. We are using some for Christmas gifts, cause you know everyone in my family will love pictures of my baby girl. (at least I hope so! haha!!) I'll upload some that I'm not using... and i'll post the others after Christmas.
Be thinking of me on Wednesday morning. I am anxious to get back to work and get our daily routine started up, but I'm also sad about leaving my baby girl. (I'm tearing up just typing about it!) I am so glad we found someone for her to stay with and she doesn't have to go to a daycare just yet. She will be staying with our friend, part time, that has a little girl that's 6 weeks older than Gracie, so they are going to become the best of friends and Josh is going to keep her a couple days a week as well. It makes me feel more at ease knowing shes going to be in good hands and will get more one on one attention.
I hope you all have a great week!!! :)

She is growing soo fast and doing something new everyday! I don't know how we ever lived without her!! :)
Gracie had her first photoshoot with Michael on her 4 week birthday!! Here is a "sneak peak" from the shoot. I can't wait to see them all!!! :)
I gave Mom this onesie for Mothers day before we even knew what we were having. I secretly hoped for a girl so she could wear baby legs with this! Thanks Taylor and Jasmin for the baby legs! We love them!! :)

Miss Gracie is napping now, so I haven't gotten to take her "2 week" photos yet, so I will have to post those later! We take pictures daily, so i'll always have pictures to share!! :)
Mom came to stay with us this weekend while Josh went to a hunt test in Jonesboro. Gracie gave her Gammie the biggest smile before she left on Sunday! Of course Mom just melted! She has started smiling at us more. It is the sweetest thing ever!! She smiled so big at Josh last night. She is such a happy baby and is soo alert when she is awake. She just looks around and is so content. However, she does not enjoy having her diaper or clothes changed!!! We are going to have to work on this, cause she has lots of clothes she has to wear!! :)
Josh's mom and sister also came to visit us this weekend. This was Elizabeth's first time to meet Gracie. Of course I didn't take any pictures, but Gracie sure enjoyed all the attention from her Aunt and Grandma!!!
Here are some pictures of our baby girl taken the past couple of days!!!
Ohh... here is the link to her hospital pics... I didn't realize I didn't post it last time...

Looking back, I have to say the whole labor process wasn't too bad (once I had my epidural!). For me it was more of the "fear of unknown" that scared me and it was just a long long day! I didn't know what to be prepared for. After hours of no progress (I was dilated 8 and 100 effaced and she still wasn't engaged at noon and there was no change in progress from then until 5 pm).
I asked my Dr the options of a c section. Gracie's heart rate had dropped a few times during the day and since I wasn't progressing, she said we could do one if I wanted. Of course I jumped on it cause I was just exhausted and ready to meet our little girl.
Since I delivered so late in the day Wednesday and I had lost alot of blood during delivery, we had to stay until Saturday. Boy were we glad to get home!! Now we are just working on getting our days and nights figured out! She is such a good baby and so alert when she is awake. We don't have much crying unless we are changing a diaper or shes hungry and I don't get to her fast enough! lol!!
This post is going to be short and sweet. She is napping and I should be as well!! :) Here are some pictures of our little girl!! :)
Our first family photo!

Josh's birthday was Sunday, so I have to wish him a belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! When we found out we were pregnant and our due date, he kept saying how neat it would be if she was born on his birthday. Of course she wasn't born on his birthday, but she will be just a few days after!!! Sunday we went to dinner Lawrence and Ladeana at Texas de Brazil to celebrate. I didn't eat all day, cause I wanted to save my appetite for dinner! What a good choice I made! I paced myself and was able to eat more than I thought I would! After dinner, we went down the street to a Cheesecake cafe and OMG!!! It was sooooooo good! This place makes tons of different cheesecakes daily. I let Josh choose, cause there were soo many I thought sounded good. He went with the Chocolate Almond Coconut cheesecake and boy was it yummy!! I brought one of their menus home and told Josh we will be ordering from them soon!! Ahhhhh!!!!!
Mom and Dad are on their way to town now for the big festivities tomorrow!! We can't wait!! I will post again soon!!! :)

We did an ultrasound 2 weeks ago and they estimated her weighing 7lbs 11oz then. My dr said to expect her to atleast be 7 1/2 lbs. Of course when we started the ultrasound, we saw her cute little lips and nose. Within seconds of starting, she threw her hand up over her face and kept it there for the remainder of the time. Little stinker! It was like she was saying, "No pictures, please." She just wants to keep us in suspense!!!
I have my last drs appointment tomorrow afternoon and then we are to be at the hospital at 8pm Tuesday night. My dr said they would start the pitocin around 5:30 Wednesday morning and we'll go from there. Please keep our little family in your thoughts and prayers! Of course Mom and Dad are coming in Tuesday night and plan to join us at the hospital bright and early Wednesday morning. Aunt Caroline has some classes on Wednesday, so she is going to play it by ear when she joins us, but she has said she is not going to miss out on Gracie's arrival! Lets hope she doesn't keep us waiting all day Wednesday!! :)
Hopefully I will be able to update and post some pictures pretty soon after she is here. I haven't done it yet, but I know I can do posts from my iphone, so we'll see!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!!! :)
Here are some pictures of Gracie's room. I am pretty pleased with how it all turned out!!!
These letters match her bedding perfectly!!! I had them made by a mutual friend in Jonesboro. She has a blogspot and makes some super cute letters and bow holders...
Mom and Dad got this Glider and ottoman for us. It is sooo comfy. Josh makes fun of me cause I come sit in here and look at all her stuff atleast once a day!! :)
The sweet girls in my department at work threw me the sweetest baby shower about a month ago. They put sooo much work into it and I had soo much fun!!! Gracie and I racked up on some good stuff!!! Here are just a few pictures from the wonderful event!! :)
