Five Months and some yummy rice cereal!

Not Grace Ann's best picture, but she looks too funny from her first feeding!
"Hey-what's that you're mixing up over there and why am I wearing this pig around my neck?"

She loves to read "Home and Garden" and "Pottery
Barn Kids"
GA turned 5 months on the 16th and she started her first rounds of rice cereal! I was excited to go to the grocery store and buy new baby stuff! We now have spoons, rice cereal and bibs! I know.......I couldn't hold in my excitement either! Just wait it gets better! We are even getting the highchair out!
Okay enough of that............as of her four month appointment here are GA's stats:
Weight: 15lbs. 4 oz.
Height: 26.5 inches
Percentiles: 70th for weight
92nd for height
GA is definitely a healthy baby! And we are so thankful!




What a sweet puppy!

Oscar and his toy
Isn't this sweet....they are both doing "tummy time."


Ever since we brought home GA, Oscar has been so intrigued with her. He sniffs and licks her and watches her all day. I think he really likes that she is here because we go on lots of walks (before she was born, not so much). I wish I had taken a picture of our walk the other day, because Oscar got so tired of walking that I put him in the compartment under the stroller. I know he was thinking that this is the way to roll around the neighborhood. It's just like a walk without all the work! I was a little embarrassed when cars driving by would slow down to check out my dog in the stroller. But what can you do, Oscar has short legs!

My new tricks!

Grace Ann rolled over for the first time over Christmas!
(But she had some assistance from a few pillows and her mom.)
Hey Cousin Camden...I can almost sit up in a chair like you! Just need a little help
from my bumbo chair!
"Mirror, mirror on the wall who is the drooliest baby of them all?"

Hey Mom....umm....yeah....I really hate that flash! Could you just stop aiming that
metal thing at me with the flashy lights?

I love my links!





Tarkington Girls Lunch after Christmas!

Seniors '99

Yikes....I'm old!

Remica and GA pose so well together! Two pretty ladies!
"So tell me all about my mommy!"
The Pink Ladies!
(And they didn't even call each other the night before to match!)

The day after Christmas my parents, Russ, Grace Ann and I met up with my high school gals for lunch at Pappasito's. We had a lot of fun talking about the babies (GA and Berklie), Sara's wedding in Cambodia and hearing about Barbie's little twins that are due at the beginning of the summer! She wasn't even showing yet and she was three months pregnant!

More Christmas pictures!


GA and her Uncle Buck!

Grace Ann and her Grand-Daddy!


I love this look on her face!



Check out these cute skimmers Grace Ann found in her stocking! Sooooo cute!




Listening to her Daddy read "The Night Before Christmas" on Christmas Eve.
