Toe In the Mouth

Easter Sunday

For those of you that missed this amazing Easter Egg Hunt, here you go! Grace picked up one maybe two eggs, then dig a belly dive on the grass and then the horses across the street caught her attention for the rest of the afternoon.
Josh and I looked like your typical first time parents with all the equipment that we brought outside for the 2 minute hunt. We had the camera, the video camera & the cell phone camera all on hand.


2nd Daddy Daughter Dance

Getting ready for the dance.
Dancing with dad can be scary Grace!
Family shot!
Cute as can be.
By far Grace's favorite part of the dance, the CUP CAKE!
This past Saturday, March 15, 2008 Grace and her dear daddy went to the 4th Annual Daddy Daughter Dance. Grace was very much entertained by all the lights, balloons and other little girls that were dancing around.
Grace was more into the purple cupcakes and playing in the rocks outside the center then actually dancing. I think Josh was ok with that. Next year Josh won't be able to get Grace off the dance center.


Water Wiggles

Last night we took Grace to her first Water Wiggles class at the community pool. At first she was a little unsure of the huge blue pool, but in no time she warmed up to the idea of jumping & splashing around in the water.
I quickly realized that the more funny sounds and faces I made the more Grace seemed to like the class.
Although there were dads in the water with the babies as well, Josh choose to watch from the side. We looked like first time parents. We were the only parents with a video camera, a digital camera and a cell phone camera.
We had to stay away from our new friend Owen, because every time he cried Grace would think about crying as well.
The locker-room after the class was a zoo. There were young kids running around, babies being tossed around in the showers and moms running around with no clothes on. It was intense. I will be a bit more prepared on Wednesday class for all the locker-room activity.

Grace is going to be an excellent swimmer!


The Babysitter

This weekend Grace had a special babysitter, my BFF Brooke canceled her her busy city plans and came North to spend a little QT time with her god daughter.

She did a great job. She pulled out all the stops, brought props, used high pitch voices and let Grace play on the playground with a 1st graders and jump on the couch and play with her cell phone.

Only got one phone call from Brooke while I was at work. The message she left was that she and Grace could not get back into the house, because the dog was standing near the back door. I think it is time for Brooke to get a puppy!

Brooke you are welcomed to come and babysit Grace anytime!
