I am an auntie again!
Welcome to the world, Meira Gahyon! I feel so blessed to get to watch you grow into the beautiful woman God has planned for you to be. I love you.


Kitty decided to cuddle Brianna today. It was quite cute, so I captured a few pictures.

Potty Practice

Gracie has been potty training for a while now. She's been interested in the concept for a few months, and recently found some success. She loves how excited Momma, Daddy, and her grandparents get when she succeeds so now all I hear is "Potty, potty, potty!" I think the motivation is that when she's done she gets to wash her hands.

In addition to two teething children, our family has gotten a cold. The kids are coughing, and the teething has given both of them runny noses. Daddy and I are both very run down with a little cough and sore throat. Needless to say, it's been a long couple of weeks. We're all getting better, and anxious to meet our new family member-my sister-in-law was induced this morning with their second daughter! I've been staying close to my phone all day and praying for a smooth delivery. I'll post pics as soon as I can!

Hide 'N' Seek

You know that eerie feeling that your kid has been too quiet for too long? I had that feeling the other day and found Gracie like this:

She had crawled under the bassinet, into the storage area!
Wow, it was hard to get her out!


Gracie has a couple different ways to "flip."
She flips off my lap, Nana lays on the floor and bounces her on her legs, flipping her over her head. When both of us were too tired to keep flipping her one night, and all we heard was "Flip! Flip! Flip!" Nana decided to teach her how to "flip" herself-or do a summersault.
She has been practicing ever since:
