Our new addition

A few weeks ago, Anna Grace and I went to Kohl's. We shopped around and as we were getting ready to leave AG became very fussy. Typical. She wanted out of the stroller. Well as we waited in line to pay for our purchases I showed her a Dr. Suess "creature." AG had not gotten to the stage where she has to have toys she sees. She is easily distracted or so I thought.

Needless to say we came home with this guy:

Adam and I affectionately refer to him as Scary Orange Man. We only bought the creature not the book. I need to buy her the book so at least we can learn more about SOM. (Scary Orange Man). AG loves SOM. We keep him in the car to pull out in emergencies. When we do she squeals with delight over him! Wonder how long I can keep this Ace in my pocket?

Playdates, naps, and the tooth

Anna Grace had two playdates last week! Whew did we have fun. Wednesday we went to see Megan Bates and her two boys, Caleb and Nathan. Originally Caleb was AG's boyfriend. He loved her! But his little brother is giving him a run for his money. Nathan just grunted and watched Anna Grace everytime he was awake. I forgot my camera so sorry I didn't get pictures of the blessed event. But I did manage to get a shot of Anna Grace and Sara Kay on Thursday.

Sara Kay's mom, Ashley and I were pregnant together and due a day apart. Our moms were also pregnant with us at the same time. I really hope they grow up to be great friends.

Anna Grace also got a little play time with her cousins Caroline and Anthony on Saturday.

The girls are a month apart and shared Cheerios nicely. Its always great to get the cousins together. The four girls are going to be nice and fun when they are older.

Anna Grace is a paci girl. She has one in her mouth at naps and one in her hand and she holds her lovey. Its precious to put her to bed with the pink one in her mouth and then check on her only to find that she has switched that paci to her blue one.

Finally, we still don't have a tooth. I could care less except for the fact that she is so out of sorts. Her little gums hurt her so badly. I tell her tooth all the time to hurry up! Adam and I are worried that more than one is going to pop through quickly. Which I guess won't be terrible thing!

Weekend Wrap up

This was a LLLLLOOOOONNNNNGGGGG weekend. I should know that the best layed plans never work out. The plan was for Anna Grace and myself to watch Sally Ann dance on Friday. AG should be fine to go one day and fine she was! She loved the competition and was incredible while we were there. Well then the snow hit. Adam's class was cancelled so he ended up taking me to the Mariott in Spartanburg so that I could definitely be at the competition on Saturday. Originally, I was going to stay home and go to Spartanburg on Saturday morning. Then he would take Anna Grace to stay with Grandma Nena for the day while he went to class. Yep, that didn't work. It ended up being Daddy/daughter weekend and they had a blast.

On Saturday night, Mom, Caleb, Sally Ann, and I made the trek back to my house. It was interesting but thankfully we made it home safe and sound. We ended the night by watching Miss America. (I would show you My Miss America but I can't upload photos right now!)

She has a onsie from Miss America that Miss America 2009 Katie Stamm signed. I put it on her Friday and people were stopping us left and right about it. That little girl knows a cute outfit when she sees one too! I will add that Adam and I will NOT encourage her to do a pageant. I never did one although my sister and cousin have. I must admit that I tell her all the time what a great dancer she will be....I really hope she wants to dance!

Sunday was spent enjoying a lazy day at home. It was wonderful to be curled up with the family and just relaxing.
