Oma Mondays

Dear Oma,
Thank you for our 'Oma Mondays'. Thank you for our chats and for our walks and for changing me and holding me and bouncing me and loving me. Thank you for rubbing my back so my jammies are pilled. Thank you for this time together, even if I cry through it, even if I sleep through it. Thank you for this time together and for loving me.
Love, Gracie

Sweet Beautiful Girl

Where does the time go? I can't believe our sweet baby is already 2 months old! Seems like those big blue eyes are open a lot more nowadays and that head is up, just trying to take as much in as she can! She is really enjoying the boys lately too, giving them lots of smiles from the moment they greet her in her crib each morning....

Gracie-girl, you are loved beyond words! You are truly, truly too good to be true! I still look at you and think "Are you really mine?"

She had a check-up last week, complete with shots, :( and the scale said she weighs 13.3 lbs! She is 95%ile for weight and 75th for height. What a healthy girl! And I have to admit, I'm a bit surprised, since she is definitely the laziest eater of the three.

Here are a few shots from when Gracie's first week.....

Sweet little sleepy girl....

This last one cracks me up! What a pose......(vogue, vogue).

I really need to take a photography class-I've been wanting to for some time now. Both of my sisters got the "photography gene" such as it is, but I am sorely lacking in that department. I can be standing right next to someone and we can take the exact same picture, and somehow mine will look terrible. I would like to blame my camera, but........I know better. :)

Here are a couple shots of our Gracie at 2 months. She has changed so much already! All dressed up (just for fun), but didn't feel much like smilin'......Note the big drool spot on the front of her dress. :)

Tummy time! (usually not her favorite......) Can you tell by her expression? :)

And here is one of my favorites-I just love how her big cheek smushes her eye closed!
