Meal Time equals Hair Time

Now that Gracie can feed herself, I often do her hair in the morning while shes eating because she is confined in her booster chair. I'm actually impressed that she is so patient and doesn't mind. She even looks in the mirror when we're done and says "ooooow". I love having a girl, especially with hair that I can style.

Of course the curls

Rubber band galore

My new favorite...French braid head band (it even stayed in through her nap).

We started our many trips this summer by going with Ben's parents to Cancun. We had so much fun and Gracie was such a good girl. She loves to go bye-bye. She's a little fish in the water and enjoys going under. Gracie has always been a good sleeper, but for some reason the closet in our condo seems like it just might be her favorite place to crash. Some of the things we enjoyed were: the pool, beach, para sailing, snorkeling, a couples jungle tour, Xcaret, Mexican food, and sleeping in (especially Gracie). It was nice to be with family and create great memories together.

Happy Father's Day

Time to brag about the wonderful Father we have living in our home. He gives fun horsey rides, pushes extra high on the swing, great bather, sings sweet lullabies, patient in teaching, and the list goes on. Not to mention he is an EXTRA hard worker. Ben completed his first year of medical school and received a 4.0 putting him at the top of his class. All the while he still made time for his family, never complained, and had a great attitude. What a great Dad he is!

Sharing Time

Here are some of Gracie's new tricks. It's hard to capture them all at once especially when she was in the middle of watching her favorite show. Just thought I'd share some of the things she's learned.
