It's creepin up upon us!

I can't believe in 6 days my baby will be one!!!! I am sooo excited for her birthday party it's not even funny. I'm more excited for her birthday then my own. (And trust me, I LOVE LOVE LOVE my birthday)

Had a very busy weekend last weekend, and luckily had gorgeous weather for it! Saturday we went on an all day shopping excursion. Aunt Nanie and Uncle Adam came to T-town to meet us for lunch @ Red Robin (delicious as always) where Gracen chowed down on her corn dog. Right after looking at the kids menu and Adam pointing out all the obese children. We have the opposite problem, trying to get Gracen to gain weight!

After lunch we headed to Target to spend Gracen's St. Patty's day gift (which we loved, and no worries it was all spent on her). She got a new Easter dress and sandals, and some goodies for her Easter basket. Can't wait for her first Easter!!

Next we were headed to Toys R Us to pick out some bday presents for G, but shhh those are all surprises! Uncle Adam was dunzo after this stop (he made it a whole hour and half shopping!) and one of his friends came and picked him up.

Our last (and longest) stop was the mall. But here we mostly shopped for Aunt Nanie and browsed. Got a couple of goodies for Gracen becuase really who can resist cute baby clothes? Certainly not me (duh).

We've got a couple of exciting weekends coming up and we can hardly wait!!! Will post some pics next time!

I hate the word ornery. So anyone who uses that to describe anyone I know especially Gracen, beware! Do you even know what it means?

or⋅ner⋅y  [awr-nuh-ree] –adjective, -ner⋅i⋅er, -ner⋅i⋅est.
1. ugly and unpleasant in disposition or temper
2. low or vile.
3. inferior or common; ordinary.

Would you want to be described as any of those? Didn't think so!

Sick of the sickies

Another week has come and gone, but the flu has remained. Thank goodness it is Friday! Last weekend we went to KC, got to see where Aunt Nanie works and bring her some yummy lunch from Fazolis. After hangin out for awhile we went to Grandpa's house where we watched some basketball and played with Uncle Adam. It was such beautiful weather outside (70!) but it was way too windy to play outside. We then went to cheesecake factory for dinner and it was delicious. And then Saturday night came, and so did the sickies. One of the two of us have been sick for what seems like the past 3 months. We are not winter people. We are Christmas people, but not winter.

Took Gracen to the doctor again this week for a weigh in, she's 29 inches long and she's up to 16.1 lbs! (She's only gained 5 oz. in the last month). We're not too worried yet becuase in the midst of a cold and teething I'm surprised the girl has gained any weight at all. She continues to eat more and more table food, and loves scrambled eggs, french toast, mac & cheese, pigs in a blanket and esp. grilled cheese. What can I say? We are related. Haha.

Here's a couple of pics from this past weekend at G'pa S's.

What a weekend!

Can't believe it's Monday again ALREADY! The weekends seem to be going faster and faster.

Saturday night Ms. Gracen got to go to her first K-State basketball game! And man was it a good time. And of course we won :) We got to sit in the 2nd row, awesome. She really loved the crowd and the music and cheering everyone was doing. She danced and clapped and yelled with everyone. We thought it was going to be a fight, since the game didn't start till 7 and she usually goes to bed around 7:30 or 8, but she was a trooper and we stayed the whole game! (Unfortunately Mom and Dad forgot the camera so we have no pictures to document this momentous occasion.)

Good news, we've now got 2 teeth!

Today Gracen started her new daycare, and you wouldn't even know it. She just hopped right down and was ready to play with the other kids and of course all the toys. We'll see what happens on day 2....
