Closing the Door

Well...the day has finally come. We closed on our house today. We are no longer the owners of 5 Georgetown Circle. While I'm so glad that this step is over, it was also very sad. As we begin our search for another home, nothing can replace the memories that this home gave us. This is the home that my boys grew up in. In 1994 Josh was 14, Jake was 11 and Cody was 6. I'll always treasure our time here.

Easter Sunday

One of the best things about living close to my Grandchildren is getting to enjoy Holiday's with them. Here are a few pics of Gabe and Ellison on Easter Sunday and the rest are of Gabe's Easter Egg Hunt at the Park.
Beautiful Ellie- 7 weeks old

As you can see...Getting Gabe to sit still is not an easy task!

Gabe at Gulf Shores

A little stroll on the Beach

Andrea said that Gabe just took over her Beach Chair

This is what happens when you ask Gabe to "Show me the face"

Ellison- 1 month

I can't believe that Ellie is 1 month old already! She was 6 lb., 19 in. when she came home, 7lb, almost 21 in. at 2 weeks. She nurses great and seems to be a very content baby. We've gotten to babysit a few times and I have to say... it's becoming our favorite past time!

Catching up

My precious Grandbabies!!!

Gabe, 14 months....Ellie, about an hour old!

The First of many....

Well, Gabe got his first "real" pop on the leg from his Granby yesterday. While it wasn't an earth shattering pop, I expect it did sting a little.

We had been outside all morning and Gabe was having a great time but by about 1:00, I could tell he was getting very sleepy. He's always been pretty easy to get to sleep, all you have to do is lay down with him for a few minutes and he falls asleep. Well...yesterday he DID NOT want any part of a nap. Here's how the attempt played out.

*I laid him down and he immediately went for my hair (he loves to gently rub your hair as he falls asleep) but...instead of the gentle stroke of the hair it was an all out assault. He pulled once, I told him no, twice, I told him no, third time I gave his hair a little tug and he got the message.

*I Then thought that he had given up, but...I was wrong. He then took his little hand and rubbed my face, then he hit my head several times, fast. I grabbed his hand and told him "No hitting".

*Finally...In fast acrobatic moves he worked his body around until he got his feet up to my face and then he started to kick those little feet as hard as he could. That's when it happened.. I popped that little leg and he knew his Granby meant business!

Two minutes later...Gabe was fast asleep.
