We went to the Killeen Community Family Fair for something to do on Saturday and felt very out of place there. Can you tell?...
Ben said he felt like the cream in an Oreo cookie after getting off that train.

Chicken Pox

Gracie had her 15 month doctors apt. 2 weeks ago and got all of her vaccines and shots. She weighed in at 20 lbs. 15 ounces and 30 in. (25th percentile). We waited to get it done until now because at her 12 month apt. she was a little sick. The whole experience was so sad and she did not like it one bit. So now here we are 12 days later and she actually was one of the 5% of babies who gets chicken pox from the vaccine. A few days ago she started to run a fever (but they say that's normal after shots so I didn't think anything of it) and kept pulling at her clothes like she wanted them off. She also has been sleeping a lot more than she already does and not had as good of an appetite(thought that was normal after shots too). This morning it all made perfect since when she had red spots all over her belly...poor baby. Here I am thinking I am being a good mom by getting her shots all taken care of so she can be healthy and she ends up getting the chicken pox from it. Getting poked for the shots was bad enough and in the end it didn't even help at all but made things worse. I'm hoping that at least the other two immunizations she got will help her stay healthy. The good thing is when you get the chicken pox from the vaccine it is suppose to be less severe. I'll post more pictures through the process. Also, considering everything Gracie has still been pretty happy and even better...she is completely walking!

Curly Girly

After a walk, nap, library time, another nap, and it only being 3:00 we decided to venture and walk to Dollar General. We were pretty bored. After browsing the store I finally found something to bring home...little spongy curlers. Gracie didn't even notice they were in her hair. We left them in only for about 30 minutes and it turned out pretty good considering I only used water. We were calling her Alli all through dinner until we realized she actually kind of looked like Ronald McDonald.

California Fun

Gracie and I went to California for 5 days and had a great time. It was a beautiful day and we took a walk while Alli was at Preschool. Even baby Joshua came.

All of Grandma Graham's grandkids.
The kids all went on the merry-go-round ride at the mall after we attempted to get their pictures professionally taken

Gracie loved playing with the big bubbles at the park.

Gracie loved Alli. It even sounded like she would say her name. Alli was a sweet big cousin and they loved playing together.

We can't wait to come back this summer.
