The New Addition

Many of you have been asking about the new addition that we are doing to our house. I really don't know what all is going on, but I do know that it is all happening fast. Which is important since baby # 2 is due in 78 days.

Here are the latest pics that we took last night of the house project.


Weekend At Grandma & Grandpa's

While Josh and I went to the Gorge to see Jack Johnson my parents and aunt and uncle stayed home and watched all the grand kids. Grace had a great time. All the toys seemed to be hers and any adult lap that was open had to always be hers as well. Bless her heart. She has no idea that she is going to be a big sis sooner then later.


Too Fast

This morning as I ate my bowl of cereal I sat in Grace's room and watched her sleep. Something I hardly ever do, simply because I am afraid I'll wake her.

As I sat there in my rocking chair I couldn't but help think how fast my little girl is growing. All parents told me when I was pregnant with her that time goes by so fast. You really don't have a understanding of this until you have a child of your own.

Grace is growing up too fast.

At 19 months she is talking up a storm, happiest to be outside and around a crowd of people and still not eating her fruits and vegetables on a regular basis.

It is the best feeling in the world to come home and to have her run to the door to greet me.

So the point of this blog is to share that this morning I was feeling a bit sentimental about my little girl growing up so fast and a reminder to myself to slow down and to watch her sleep and grow more often.


The Yo Yo's & Off Spring

It's been some time, but the Yo Yo's were all reunited on Brooke's beautiful new front porch.
From Left to Right you will find ( Me, Grace, Brooke, Tamsan, Sarah, Beau and Cassie).
Where we go one we go all, or something like that...

Cannon Beach Summer Vacation

We spent the last week down on the Oregon Coast enjoying Cannon Beach. We stayed at a little motel on the beach and took in as much sun, sand and surf as we could. OK maybe we watched other people surf and Grace did get taking down by a wave so I guess that counts. It was great! Grace loved the beach, the feel of sand under her feet and watching all the kites in the sky.
We got to spend a few days of our vacation with Brooke and her small group of 29 that were staying at the hotel right next door. It was great fun and they were all so helpful in keeping a watchful eye on Grace who was always heading towards the water.
We took a few day trips from Cannon Beach to Seaside to feed the seals, Grace was completely scared. We took a trip to the Tilamock Cheese factory where we ate cheese and ice cream and we took a trip to Escola State Park. It was pouring down rain so we got to see the views from the car! You never know about the weather on the Oregon Coast.
