We inherited this ball pit from a friend and it has become the girls new favorite toy. I do have to hide it in the closet and only pull it out every now and then or else I have balls all over my house.

This is what Gracie likes to do with it. (sorry it's sideways)

5 months

Another month has come and gone way to fast. This month Abigail moved up to a size 2 diaper and is starting to put on a little weight... she is still pretty tiny though. Abby giggles all day and thumps her feet down in her crib all night. She has perfected rolling over and is starting to learn to sit up. Gracie is trying to teach Abigail to scoot which is pretty entertaining to watch. We once thought that Abby would be our calm girl, but I think she is learning a lot from her sister and trying to keep up with her. She is very active and wants to be a part of all the action. We love her contagious smile all day.

This is what he gets for being a good guy and helping a friend who has cats move...

Poor guy. His eye is still swollen today.

Swim Lessons and Fire Station

Gracie loved swimming lessons. I put her in a class that was a little too advanced for her because it was the only one available. She was the youngest one be far, but still enjoyed it. She mostly just played on the stairs the whole time. She has been a little fish in the water though and has no problem putting her face in and going under. Maybe next summer we can teach her to swim.

Last week we went on a little field trip with some of Gracie's friends to the Fire Station. She thought the big Red Trucks were really cool, but was nervous when the fire man put on his gear. Little Abby was the only one brave enough to sit on his lap.

This weekend I took a trip to Dallas to see my good friend Heather and Steve and Melinda. We had a wonderful time together laughing, talking, and hanging out. Being with Heather reminded me of rooming together in college. She was so sweet to do a little photo shoot of Abby while I was there. Heather has such talent for photography and Abigail was very cooperative. Thanks Heather for a great weekend!
