Ridiculously Long Post

My beautiful baby...Goodness...I could just eat her up! Sounds kinda like a proud Momma?...I just can't believe she's ours...such a good her, love her.

Got my shoe off...smiling with my pacifier.

We had May's play group last week. The babies are getting so big...

Cy, Grace, Jess, & Josh

Family Portrait
(first try, I might add)

Papaw & his girl...sitting up!

Yeah, I doin' it!

We went to Emily & Rob's to play with Molly the other night. The girls just stared at each other...sign of a good to sit & stare without exchanging words.

Grace had her blessing at Magaw & Papaw's church today. It was very special. Ellie sang & played her flute beautifully...I cried...Andrew said he was close. She sang a song called, "You knit Me Together in My Mother's Womb"...Loved it!

Uncle John & Aunt Sara were able to come too! It's not very often that we are all together...especially down at our house.

We ate outside again...Grace too!

So that's what's going on 'round these parts. Grace doesn't want to lay down that she can sit unassisted. She's back to sleeping all night...knock on wood!

Growing Baby

Big Girl, Mother's Day, Daddy's Girl, & 5 Months

Hello Everyone! I can move where ever I want!

Seriously, this last month Grace has become a little know what I mean...personality galore!

She's really takin' a liking to eating food. Yum, yum...
She watches Andrew & I eat with this hurt look on her face like..."what about me?!"

I hosted Mother's Day this year. It was my first holiday...and it went well. I think both my mom & Andrew's were thrilled to have the day off (even though they both help tremendously).

We ate outside. We were so glad the weather was nice. I'm not sure if you all heard about the crazy weather southern Illinois had two Fridays ago (and random storms since then)...BIG time tree damage... I was working at SIU Health Center when it came through...and Andrew just happened to be driving....YIKES! Luckily, there weren't too many injuries/deaths...but there are still people without power.

Cousin Time...Ellie, Grace, & Jake

Daddy's little hunter!

I'm 5 months old!

Wild Weekend

Of course my pictures are out of long have I been doing this...still can't remember how to post them in order. Oh well!

I...Deep breath...spent the weekend without Grace for the first time ever. She happily stayed with Grandma & Grandpa in Flora. They said she was perfect...naturally.

We had a bridal shower/bachelorette weekend for Emily in Springfield, MO. It was tons of fun. Emily & I hadn't seen each other in a whole year. Super good to laugh with her. She's getting married next month & we can't wait!

While at G & G's house, Grace mastered the art of rolling over every which way. She loves to go wherever she wants.

The Bride

Off to Grandma's...
