Spring Weather

Grace and I spent a lot (all?) of our time indoors this winter. With the warmer weather, she has loved going outside (although you'd never know it by her expression in these pictures). She's not too sure about sitting on the grass yet, but I'm sure she'll get used to it.

Thirty-Six Weeks

Grace was hilarious today. She was super talkative during church, and kept making funny faces. She was also being cuddly, which we never mind. She is starting to wave hello and goodbye, which we make her practice with all her church friends. I'm surprised she was in such a good mood today; I expected Daylight Savings to throw off our whole schedule, but she was fine.

we saw a lot of this face today

My mom and Rebecca have been in town the last little while to help Sandi out with baby Violet, and they've been able to come down and spend the day with us too, which has been so nice. When they were here on Monday we put Grace's hair into pigtails.  I cannot believe her hair is long enough! She is getting so big, and looking less like a baby.  Stop growing up, Grace!

I tried pigtails again the next day, and you can really see her curls in these pictures (and I even tried to wet them done to straighten them out).
I love the short hairs underneath.

Thirty-Five Weeks

I took these next pictures first, but then decided that if a dress can't cover the diaper cover, it's probably time to retire it as a dress (unless you're Shirley Temple).
And so a new shirt is born! Grace also got some new shoes to wear with her Easter dress, so she tried them out this week.

Grace's new game is knocking over the blocks I set up.  Sometimes she likes to fake me out by touching the tower like she's going to knock it over, and then pulling her hand back. She'll do that a couple times before actually knocking it over. These first few pictures are just some cute pictures of Grace that aren't related to blocks at all.
Hello fat tongue

Lately Grace has been cuddling my leg, which I totally love since she isn't usually very cuddly.
 And on to the blocks:

Thirty-Four Weeks

I am loving that church is at 11:00 now.  It works so well with Grace's schedule (she takes a nap on the pew during sacrament.  It's amazing).  We love this silly girl.  She loves "talking", and babbles when she's in the right mood.  She's on her way to saying "Dada."  Technically she can say it, but she doesn't use it to mean anything yet.  I have a feeling she'll figure it out soon since the highlight of her day is when Bryan gets home. She's also has started making an urgent cooing noise when she wants something (she does it when Bryan gets home, and pretty much anytime we're eating something).
