Jasmin invited us to go to the races for Zach's birthday. (Hope you had a great birthday, Zach!) So, last weekend we headed to Oaklawn. Neither one of us had ever been before, so we were pretty excited!!! (please excuse my roots... i have a date with my hairdresser next weekend... wayyy past due!)
We had sooo much fun!!! Jasmin got a table for all of us and it was very nice!! We were able to do everything we wanted up in our little, drink, place our bets....we even had a waitress!! =)
I pretty much just bet on the horses with names I liked (haha), but I did pretty good!!! After spending the day at the races, we headed to dinner at "The Oyster Bar". This restaurant is my best friend Sarah's little sisters boyfriends restaurant (did I loose you!??!!)!! The guys enjoyed oysters (yuck) . Halfway through dinner I started feeling icky. I think all I ate was a hushpuppy and a french fry! lol By the time we were home, I thought I was going to DIE!!!!! Stupid stomach bug!!! I'm just soo glad it didn't hit me until that night!!! Thanks again Jasmin and Zach for asking us! We can't wait to do it again!!!

4 Months

We went to the Dr Thursday for Gracie's 4 month check up and shots... sniffle sniffle.... Actually, she does really well. She must definitely take after her daddy on this one, cause her momma is a big baby!!! ha!
She weighed 14 lbs 2 oz (75th percentile) and was 24 1/2 inches long (60th-75th percentile). Dr Bubba told me whatever i'm doing, keep on doing, cause shes at the right weight and she looks good. (So, HA to all you people saying my baby was big!!! lol) This girl has no chance at being tall!!! I can't remember what her head measurement was, but it was in the 90th percentile! He said she had a big head, but there was nothing we could do about that! haha!!!
I just looove this picture!! I know you won't believe me, but she sat up by herself and I was able to snap a quick picture! This made her momma soo excited!!! I sent my mom this picture and her text back said, "I knew she was an exceptional baby" HAHAH!

Gracie, you are sooo much fun right now and your mommy and daddy are soo excited cause we know you are just going to be more fun as each month passes!!! You are wearing a size two diaper and 3 month clothes. You have started squealing and LOVE hearing yourself and do it ALL THE TIME!!! You wake up in the morning and lay in your bed and just talk and squeal to yourself. Your daddy and I wake up laughing at you!!! =)
Everywhere we go, everyone tells me what a beautiful baby you are. Of course I agree with them and thank god for blessing me with such a perfect baby. I am soo lucky to be your momma!!! =)

The bug...

My worst nightmare came true.... all three of us caught the stomach bug! Uggg was it rough!!! It started out with Gracie, then I got it, then Josh got it. Let me just tell you it is NO FUN AT ALL!! Thank goodness we were with my mom and she was able to take care of Gracie while I was hurlin' my life away! We then had to drive tackle a 3 hour drive the rain. I think that was the longest ride home IN MY LIFE! We had to stop so many times! Luckily Gracie slept pretty much the entire poor baby! =( Thank goodness for Josh's mom helping us out Sunday night. We went straight to her house and crawled in bed and she took care of Gracie for us... who was still pretty pitiful and weak looking. Josh and I are feeling better.... I think Gracie is recovering a little slower than we are. She still didn't want to eat much yesterday and slept alot, but she still flashes us that big pretty smile! Seriously, this baby is always smiling! She threw up and looked up at me and smiled and just squealed and coo'd... at 4 am in the morning, might I add!!! =)
Sooooo.... I guess all this is my excuse for Gracie's 4 month blog being late!!! =)

Baby Addie

Gracie and I went to a baby shower Sunday for Ashley and baby Addie. Addie got lots and lots of cute things!! Gracie was so good during the shower and just sat and looked around at everything/everyone. We are soo excited about baby Addie's arrival!
Here is the gift we got to go in Addie's room along with some other goodies!!!

Is this not the cutest!?!?! I found out about Jamie and Whimsy Tin thru Our friends Zach and Jasmin. They gave us a tub for Gracie and I just LOVE it and think this is a perfect baby gift!! Jamie is so talented and does such an amazing job! I sent her a picture of her bedding and it matches perfectly!!! I told her I was being stingy and didn't want to share her info, cause I wanted to use this great idea for gifts I have to buy for! haha!! But i'll share with you all!! haha! Check her out.. Whimsy Tin

Snow Day

We got to enjoy a "Snow day" last Friday!! Our morning started off with sleet, then by mid morning it was snowing big time! By mid afternoon the sleet returned. It was soo pretty! Gracie and I just looked from the windows, cause it was too cold to get out in, not to mention everything was so slick.

Finally Saturday afternoon we bundled her up and went outside to take some pictures. So funny it took me awhile to get all her layers of clothes on and she wasn't even outside 5 mins!!!

Love the barn in the background...yes, we live in wayyy out in the country!!

I wanted to get a picture of her with the snow (ice), so I laid her down on the ground. As soon as I did she sneezed. Josh flipped out and said we had to take her in! Party pooper!! She was loving it and just smiled the entire time! I got a picture, but of course her eyes are closed from sneezing! Ohh well.... still a sweet memory of her "first snow" =)

Day with Daddy

Gracie spent the day with her Daddy yesterday. Schools were still closed due to the winter weather we got over the weekend...our road was still kinda icy in spots. Josh's mom had called and asked if she could keep her Tuesday since they were out of school, but Josh said he ended up just staying at the house, since there wasn't much he could get out and do.

These are the pictures he sent me yesterday, that sad I could be at home with them!!! =(

Modeling her daddys "Delta Waterfowl" hat

Love this expression!! She makes it all the time!!! =)

Josh said they were watching football together (i'm soo glad he "semi" made the bed before taking these pics!)

Our little duck hunter

Those of you that know us, know that Josh is obsessed with ducking hunting... any kind of hunting for that matter! This weekend was the last weekend of duck season. Since the weather was supposed to get so bad, he decided to stay home with us and make sure we were ok.... what a good daddy! (and we are soo glad he did cause we lost power late saturday afternoon!!)

I could tell he was a lil disappointed he was missing out, cause several times he said, "Man, this is perfect duck hunting weather."

So I dressed Gracie up in her camo dress (of course complete with her matching camo bow) and dug her doggie out of her toy bin in tribute to the last weekend of duck season! lol!

I've got my doggie and my camo on... i'm ready to go duck hunting!!!
