Gracie Update and Utah Pictures

Grace has decided yesterday was the day to make new developments. I have been trying to show her how to roll over but from her back. She can roll to her side but that's it. I finally decided to put her on her front and wouldn't you know it, she rolled right over!
A few hours later I was giving her her bottle and she decided to hold it! I had to help her a few times but it was great!
And then she........................slept threw the night!! 8:00 p.m. - 8:45 a.m.!!!! I did check on her in the middle of the night to make sure she was okay and I made Brent check on her when he got up. So she got sleep but we didn't.

My mother-in-law sent us pictures from our trip to Utah in June. I'm glad someone's memory card was working!!! Enjoy the cutest which is my daughter!

For my dear friend, Ali

This is my friend, Ali, and her husband Jeremy with their son, Tyler, at our house for our Easter Egg Hunt this last March.

On early Saturday morning, my friend, Ali, her 3 children and her parents were driving from Washington to Salt Lake City for a family reunion. Her father fell asleep at the wheel and lost control of the van. Ali and her father were killed but her 3 children and mother only had minor injures.

Ali was such a sweet and loving person. Before we had Grace, she didn't care that I didn't have kids and still wanted to include me in things. She was a very good mother and was very fun. She always had a smile for you and made you feel like she was so excited to see you.

My heart goes out to her husband, Jeremy, and their sweet children. I know that Ali loved them with all her heart and she will miss them while she is away in Heaven. But we will miss her lovely smile and sweet face and kind spirit. Our lives are blessed to know her.

New Toy!!!

We went to Babies r' Us last night to buy a chair for Grace's room. We have known for awhile that she needs more stimulation and I have been looking at Exersaucers on-line. I love Babies r' Us because you can take things down off their shelves and try them out. I wanted a gender-neutral one in case we have a boy next. But wouldn't you know it, Grace loved the girlie one and it was on Clearance!!! She is just like me!!! Love's a bargain and is prissy! She has been playing in it ever since. I guess Brent and I need to gear ourselves up for all of the toys our house will hold someday!
