We've been very busy these last two weeks, which is why we haven't posted regularly. We had TONS of visitors and got to visit with a lot of friends. We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and, well, we hope Santa was as good to everyone as he, my grandparents and uncles all were to me and Baby Sister Grace!
Visitors this past two weeks: Aunt Terri and her daughter, Shelby, my Grammy Chris, Grampa Ward, Uncles Connor, Kevin and Tommy! Also, we had a trip to Uncle Allan's to have a Big Christmas party with my Spivey family and one great weekend out with Aunt Holly and my BFF, Kayla, wherein we got to meet The Big Guy in Red, himself. I have to say, I didn't love him. There is one picture floating around of Gracie, me and him...and then this picture of Kayla, me and him.
|Kayla and me with Santa Claus...as you can tell, I have been more happy in my life.|
That said, our Christmas was, well, FANTASTIC. My relatives were VERY kind to me and Santa and my relatives brought some fun things as well...
|Who doesn't love a good set of dress-up clothes?|
|Do Grampa's shoes count as dress-up clothes???|
|A PIANO! I got a PIANO!!! And an INCHWORM!!! And books! And baby dolls! And Little People zoo and animals! And clothes! And a CD player! And...well, you get the picture.|
|Even the boxes were fun!!!!|
|And Baby Sister Grace got an AWESOME chair, which she's not yet big enough for, so I decided I should break it in for her...I know she won't mind the extra drool and string-cheese goo....|
|Grampy and me|
|I have GOT this fork thing. I mean, GOT it! :)|
|Uncle Kevin and me coloring...he can even stay between the lines!|
My Stats (all on a typical scale!):
Height: 32 inches (50th percentile)
Weight: 27 lbs (75th percentile)
Head: 17 3/4 inches (10th percentile)
What a crazy two weeks! As Kaety said, we had LOTS of visitors and LOTS of fun! I got to meet my Aunt Terri (my Mom's best friend from high school) & her daughter, Shelby...they were so nice!
|Aunt Terri, Shelby and me|
|Me and Aunt Rachel and Aunt Sarah while Big Sister Kaet opens our gifts...|
|Me and my Grampy - he is HILARIOUS!|
|Me and Uncle Connor. He thinks he's not good with kids, but, well...you can see that he is!|
|Grammy Chris and me...she's SO snugglable!|
Throughout the last two weeks, I got to spend a lot of time "training" on tummy time both at home and the couple of days I was at school. I actually seem to like it, though I am not yet rolling over...maybe I'm too interested in how cute I am?
|Gracie at school in mirror - "I'm so funny!"|
|More Tummy Time|
|Uncle Connor, Uncle Kevin and Kaia|
|Grammy, Grampy, Daddy & Gracie, Kaety & Mommy, Uncle Tommy, Uncle Kevin & Uncle Connor...we sure missed Sissy and Brother Brian!|
After my family left, I got to go visit Dr. P and Nurse Amy for my 4-month visit. (Can you believe I am 4 months old?! Time does fly!). Unfortunately, I had to have 3 shots, which I have to say I was NOT a fan of....that said, they are very nice and I appreciate all their attention to detail. Unfortunately as well, I have an ear infection, so I am trying out the medicine my Gramma Ward, my Mom, and my Sister Kaet are all allergic to...we'll see if I get a big ol' rash too :(
Here are my stats from my visit with Dr. P (I'm a BIG girl!) :)
Height: 25 inches (75th percentile & closing in on sister Kaet!)
Weight: 14 lbs (60th percentile)
Head: 15 3/4 inches (25th percentile - my Mom has cursed both of us with small heads! Daddy says they're just "efficient!")
Merry Christmas and Happy 2012 to everyone! This year will bring so many wonderful things...I cannot wait!
