Blessaversary

September 25, 2011
On this day, 2 Years ago, I married my best friend.  Today, we bless our first baby, the greatest blessing of all, 
Gracie Hope Gille.



I would be lieng if I said I wasnt stressed on her blessing day.  I wanted it all to go perfect. NO FUSSING.  Well she did awesome! She fussed at the end of our picture taking but then I held her and she fell right asleep and stayed so through the whole blessing.  What can I say, she is a clutch baby.

Matt's Mom and Don and Dad all were able to come to Gracie's blessing day.  Vicki and Don arrived Thursday evening so we got to spend the whole weekend with them.  We grabbed some BBQ, hit some golf balls, went on walks, played pool volleyball, watched movies, and just hung out with Gracie.  Charles arrived Saturday night just in time for her blessing.  It was great to have all Grandparents present.



I made a cake for the special combo occasion.  Not the best decorator.  Didnt realize would be taking lots of photos with it or else would of given a little more time and effort towards it.

We ate Cafe Rio to celebrate.  Yummy!

No Longer A Newborn

As of this week Gracie no longer fits in her newborn outfits.  Crazy how fast babies grow!  Many people ask..who does she look like. well here is a picture of me and matt around her age.  What do y'all think?

I started putting Gracie in her bumbo as of late.  She dislikes tummy time so much I am not going to fight with her.  She goes ballistic every time but when I prop her up to look around she is wide eyed and happy as can be.  The towel goes under her pits because it help her hold her head up more.  She LOVES it.


Rachele came to visit as well.

Embarrassing but reality....

1 Month Old

Gracie,

Today you are 1 month old.  It is crazy how time flies by! I swear days got by so much faster with you around.  I love every minute of it.  Your dad and I, are just smitten by you. Even when you are a bit fussy.  You are still an adorable little munchkin.


At one month you can:
  • Smile! Yes you smile at me, but you make me act really goofy to do it.  Ive checked your diaper after to confirm it wasn't you peeing. No girl you can smile now!
  • Hold your head up on your own for quite some time
  • When I put you on your tummy for "tummy time" you shift your body close to me or so you can see me.  
  • We cant leave you alone on your tummy because you somehow crawl and shift and move.  Very agile, wirey little booger butt.
  • Make really funny/loud grunts when eating to push the poop out.  You are excellent at wasting lots of diapers. I think you go through around 20 a day.  Fast metabolism I suppose.
  • You love to sleep in the bed next to your daddy.  You will just stare at him and suck on your pacifier.  Completly content to look at him.
  • You like to movement when being held.  You get bored pretty fast.  So you keep me on my toes.
  • You go on walks with me.  Weather is getting better. So we go get the mail in your little old fashioned buggy.
  • You sleep with your arms above your head.
  • You are deliciously adorable. I have a song for you.  Its a country one that is out right now that I edited just for you and it goes like this : 
Baby why you wanna cry?
You really oughta know that I
Just have to walk away sometimes
Im gonna do what mothers do
We’re gonna have a cry or two
But I ain’t ever changin’ my mind

Gracie girl, don’t you know that I love you?
And I wouldn’t dream of you goin’ nowhere
Silly baby, come here, let me hold you
Have I told you lately?
I love you my Gracie, girl

Wouldn’t miss a single day
I’d probably just fade away
Without you, I’d lose my mind
Before you ever came along
I was livin’ life all wrong
Smartest thing I ever did was make you all mine

Gracie girl, don’t you know that I love you?
And I wouldn’t dream of you goin’ nowhere
Silly baby, come here, let me hold you
Have I told you lately?
I love you my Gracie, girl

Gracie girl, don’t you know that I love you?
And I wouldn’t dream of goin’ nowhere
Silly baby, come here, let me hold you
Have I told you lately,
I love you like

Gracie girl, don’t you know that I love you?
And I wouldn’t dream of you goin’ nowhere
Silly baby, come here, let me hold you
Have I told you lately?
I love you my Gracie, girl

 Matt and I did a quick 1 month photo shoot with her.  When I say quick. I mean 10 minutes and we were done.  She was awake. Rooting like crazy.  Time to feed her but wanted to get some good shots in the sunlight.  Is she just not so photogenic?

She started to FREAK OUT.  She loves her pacifier. Second best treat :)


Gracie, your dad and I love you so much! We couldn't imagine a life without you in it.  You have completed our family.  We are so proud to be your parents!
