Grace Is Crawling!

video

As I mentioned in my last quick blog Grace is now crawling! She switches between and army crawl and an up on all fours crawl. I thought many of you would enjoy getting to see it. She is keeping me on my toes, she pulled everything off the lower shelves of my bookcase yesterday morning, I needed to dust anyway. You get to see a mini fit in the clip too, I moved the phone in hopes she would keep crawling.

Grace has also taken up the habit of chewing on cords, any suggestions as to how to get her to stop? and keeping them out of reach is the obvious... duh. ;-)

As for me. . . if anyone reading this actually wonders... I am doing fine. I'm still at Subway, I'm a sandwich artist he he he *rolling my eyes* - I actually had a customer tell me how beautiful the sandwiches I made for her were! I am taking six credits through USU and I'm trying to enjoy every moment I can with Grace. She keeps me pretty busy even with her being perfect and all. :-) I was in need of a break yesterday so while Grace was down for a nap I grabbed my camera (which I am in DESPERATE need of a new one) and ran out front to take some new pictures of myself because I was in the mood to play with photos (after I took them I remembered that I did not have photoshop on this computer- grumble grumble) but I liked this one.

Random Things About Grace

Grace can now CRAWL!

She also babbles saying Mamamamama.

She wakes up every morning at 8:24, always 8:24.

She loves to chew on my phone but generally only if it is playing music and if you take it away from her she will throw a fit like you wouldn't believe.

She thinks that glasses are supposed to be pulled off the face and chewed on and are there strictly for her own entertainment.

She hates carrots and will not eat them even if she is starving!

She thinks that she should be allowed to feed herself and when she is done eating she does big raspberries to let you know she's full.

Home Again

What a week! Grace and I spent the week in Arizona. We did dinner at Great- Grandma Woods' on Sunday and got to see the slew of Cousins and Aunts and Uncles and Grace made sure that she was notices I think she puked on nearly everyone there! That must be the way she shows you that she loves you and if that is the case I must be her favorite person in the World! We had such a good week, full of spending time with Grandma and Jenny, shopping, and just relaxing. It was VERY HOT while we where there, in the triple digits most of the days, I jumped into the pool several times in the middle of the night it was GREAT! We went to Kassidiee's Volleyball game, which she did a great job of helping win! Grace loved watching it.

But as they say all good things must come to an end.

Grace and I finally returned home EARLY Sunday morning. Well technically we got into SLC around three pm on Saturday but we got a little sidetracked. We met up with my friend and went to a movie, Eagle Eye - it was the first movie that Grace had been to and she was fascinated! She loved it, the loud noises the colorful explosions I tried to get her to go to sleep and she would NOT have any of that she wanted to watch! She also got to experience RED licorice for the first time. She was completely covered by the time the movie was over, it took a change of clothes and more than ten baby wipes to fix the sticky mess. We also went to Pei Wei- one of my absolute favorite restaurants and then we cruised State Street, it was so fun!

Did I mention that when we returned home it was SNOWING? it was insane! To go from triple digits to SNOWING I had Grace all bundled up when we got into SLC but had no shoes or blanket because I hadn't packed shoes, I was lucky I had socks for her because I rarely even put those on why cover up those beautiful painted toes? And ME, I was wearing flipflops!

Spur of the Moment

Grace and Nate October 4, 2008
Well yesterday morning I got a bee in my bonnet about needing to get out of Cache Valley for a little while and since I am not scheduled to work till next Friday I threw a few things into a suitcase for Grace and myself and we hit the road. No destination really in mind but when we were about half way to Salt Lake I called Southwest and told them to book me on the first flight out of there. Grace and I got to Phoenix at 4:05 pm. She got to see Daddy for the first time in nearly 5 months! (next Friday would have been 5 months)

Today we went to breakfast with Nate and we are just getting ready to go shopping with Darlene aka "Grandma Higgins". I thought I would take advantage of the opportunity to use her computer while Nate fed Grace. She's about done now and we are getting ready to go off for another grand adventure. I will post more soon.
