6 Months

Our sweet little Abigail is 6 months old. She weighs in at 14 lbs. and is 25 inches long. We started her on rice cereal and she hates it. We've also tried bananas and squash and she's not a big fan of those either. Hopefully this girl will get the hang of eating soon so we can plump her up. She sits up on her own for a few minutes before toppling over. I can't believe how old she's getting. I'm even convinced that she's been saying "Mama". Abby had her first cold a couple of weeks ago and was a trooper through it. She continues to be our sweet little girl. Happy 1/2 Birthday Abigail!

Sea World

We had such a fun time at Sea World this past weekend. Ben was in between rotations and we thought it was the perfect time to go. The weather was wonderful (mid 70's thanks to all the rain the day before) and it was not crowded at all. Friday night we walked the river walk in San Antonio and ate dinner at a little Mexican Restaurant outside.

I think this was one of our favorite parts...feeding the dolphins. It was so neat to be so close to them and touch them.
Gracie loved the rides (the 2 that she was tall enough to go on). Since there was hardly anyone there we got to just stay on the ride and ride it as many times as we wanted. This girl is seriously going to love the roller coasters when she gets bigger.
Gracie was very interested in all of the animals enjoyed just watching them. She thought it was pretty cool to stay the night at the hotel which she kept calling "the mall" (I wouldn't mind spending the night at the mall) and enjoyed the free breakfast in the morning. Of course she got waffles, so she smelled like syrup all day, chocolate milk, a cinnamon roll, 3 cups of orange juice, and frosted flakes...and yes she ate all of it. What can I say but she takes after her Dad.
And of course Abby was there too. She was a sweet little angel and was happy coming along for the ride.

Labor Day

We had a wonderful labor day together and decided to go to the zoo. Grace woke up in such a happy mood and was so cute all day. (These videos are mostly for Grandparent enjoyment)

She sang this song for about 15 minutes straight. Getting one word wrong on the song can lead you back to the beginning and sing it all over again.

She was so excited to see the spiders (I'm not sure why since we see them everyday in our house). She got a little distracted with her toenails.

Preschool

Gracie had her first day of preschool yesterday. I debated back and forth all summer on weather or not to put her in and finally decided to do it. It's Tuesday and Thursday from 9-12 which is the perfect amount of time. She had a wonderful first day and looked so big to me. I think it is going to be really good for all of us. I'm looking forward to having some alone time with Abigail and be able to run errands with only one kid. Gracie is going to do so well with the structure of preschool and the interaction with the other kids. Gracie thinks its pretty cool that "Daddy's at school, and Gracie's at preschool."
