Smiley girl

She sure does love to smile for the camera! She is sleeping 5hour stretches at night and let's just say it makes this mama happy! The boys are still in love with her and Peyton likes to hold her and kiss her. She is a sister with three proud big brothers they tell anybody that wants to look at her that it is baby grace!!

Little Ms. Grace

Little Ms. Grace is 4 weeks old. So hard to believe that she has been with us that long already. I took her into the midwife today for a check-up and was told she was perfect. Of course, I already knew that :o) She weighs 12 lbs 10 ozs. I would say that she is getting enough to eat since she has gained 2.9 lbs in 4 weeks :o)

Hoping to get a picture of her today, will probably post it tomorrow.

Grace is...

wearing 3-6 month clothes
sleeping at least 4 hours in a stretch at night

Grace really wants....

to roll over (she tries very hard you know)
to be held all the time

Her brothers think...

she is just the greates thing in the world
Peyton likes to give her 20+ kisses during the day

We love her bunches and are so happy that she is a part of the family!!

Peyton Update

Peyton went to the doctor today for a check up (about 7 months late)

Weight 34.4 lbs
Height 35.5 inches

50% for Height
90-95% for Weight

Wouldn't it be that now I am having to monitor him because he is getting to "big" for his height!!! Wasn't it just last year that I had to pump him full of calories because they didn't think he was getting enough calories!!

He also got three shots and didn't like it one bit!!

Michael's First Day

Michael had a very good first day of school.
His brothers and sister dropped him off and we all said good bye!!
Michael got to ride the bus home and had fun!!

Growing Up

This last weekend Brian decided it was time for Michael to learn to ride a bike without training wheels. Big deal since two weeks ago he didn't like riding the one with the training wheels.
Practicing going up and down the driveway

On his own.

My husband says...

that our daughter will not date until she is 28!

Everyone else has told us that any boy that shows interest in her is asking for trouble.

Why, you ask.....

She has three older brothers that they have to get past first and then the Daddy!!

I told my husband (who despises country music) that there is a song he needs to listen to.

Here is one of the verses and the chorus

Come on in boy sit on down
And tell me about yourself
So you like my daughter do you now?
Yeah we think she's something else
She's her daddy's girl
Her momma's world
She deserves respect
That’s what she'll get
Ain’t it son?
Hey y'all run along and have some fun
I'll see you when you get back
Bet I’ll be up all night
Still cleanin' this gun

Well now that I’m a father
I’m scared to death one day my daughter
Is gonna find
That teenage boy I used to be
That seems to have just one thing on his mind
She’s growin' up so fast
It won't be long before
I’ll have to put the fear of god into
Some kid at the door

Grace's First Bath

and she loved every minute of it!
