Sleepy 1st Thanksgiving Weekend

Grace's first thanksgiving was spent with the Brosseau family. Peter and his wife Angie hosted by far the most entertaining turkey day yet. The food was good, the music was loud and all the adults were well behaved:) Although Grace slept thru the actual dinner she was able to enjoy her cousins Jack and Carly and the dogs all day.

It was also Grace's first trip to Pike's Place Market. On her dad's back she took in all the sights and smells that the market had to offer.

It was a busy holiday weekend for Grace. I think the photo above sums it all up!


Hard to believe

It is hard for me to believe that my daughter is almost a year old. As I drove into work today Grace and I sang our song the Itsy Bitsy Spider, well I did most of the singing, but she made noises as if she were singing along. It made my eyes fill with water. It made me think of how many more car rides do I have when she and I can sing this song together. I know I have many more, but it is hard to believe how fast the time will go.

Each day we are learning more and more about our little package. Besides cutting 4 teeth all at the same time, Grace is eager to take that first step alone. Forget toys this Christmas, Grace is interested in boxes and dirty shoes. Josh recently took her shoe shopping and you would have thought she was at Disneyland, her level of excitment was extremely high.
