I just may be onto something here. :) M can feed brother while I'm getting supper. She actually did a pretty good job. She was determined to not only feed him but scoop up the food as well. Now, we just need to work on not turning the spoon when it gets to his mouth.
Today Greyson turned 6 months old! Where does the time go? Here are a few milestones for little Grey boy: He's eating all veggies and fruits. He officially cut his first tooth (bottom) over the weekend. He can get up on all fours and rock back and forth. He's found his voice by making loud, as Jared would say, terydactyl noises. Those are really fun in church:) We're still working on the sitting up alone thing. He does it for a little while and then over he goes. As you can see, he's still our smiley boy.
Macy (April 2009) Here's "M" in her jammies AND dress shoes. Pretty cute, huh? She was bound and determined to have her "sues" on. She's definitely growing up. Putting her coat on all by herself was a skill she mastered about a week ago. Thanks, Sharon!
Last Friday we packed up and left to spend Easter in Minnesota with Jared's family. Jared's sister and husband built a new home and moved in last September and we had yet to get up and see it. Talk about beautiful! Tara has paid attention to every last detail, I swear.
Macy loved being on the farm. She loved Tara's cat, Chaplain "Chappy" and dog, Shep. She saw a real cow and quickly learned that cows not only have big tongues, but long as well. Another highlight was geting to ride in Uncle Brian's International, oooops, I mean John Deere tractor. Saturday, one of Tara's friends had an Easter egg hunt and invited Macy to take part. I think she has hunting for Easter eggs down. After the egg hunt, we went back to Tara's and Grandma, Grandpa, and Great Grandma baby- sat while Tara, Brian, Jared, and I went out for supper. We returned home yesterday at about 6:30. During our 5 hour trip home, Macy slept for a whopping 40 minutes, and yes, it was a little (a lot) ugly in the car. She was so overly exhausted and tired of sitting, that all she could do was cry. Did I say cry? I mean scream. Anyways, we got home safely, got both kids bathed and in bed by 7:15ish. What a weekend! Here's some pics from the trip.
This past weekend was a great "family" weekend for us. We spent a lot of time with just the four of us hanging out in the living room. If it hadn't been snowing the whole day Sunday, we may have gotten outside since that's one of Macy's favorite things to do. We also colored Easter eggs. Macy loved it! I'm hoping the dye comes out of clothes. I did read that it is non-toxic and made from food. Thank God for that since Macy tried to eat one of the color tablets (I think she thought it was one of her vitamins:).
Our godson, Brecken, turned 6 on Saturday. This will definitely be a memorable birthday for him. We all went to his party and when we got there, Brecken and Danielle weren't there. When they showed up, Brecken had his birthday present-a dog! "Maggie" is so cute. She's a yellow lab. Good luck, Danielle!
So, for the meaning behind the title of this entry. Last night when we were eating supper, Jared coughed (Macy must have thought it was a sneeze.) and Macy responded with "Bless You, Daddy." So of course I thought I could "sneeze" and she would say "Bless You , Mommy," but all I got was a little girl trying to fake sneeze as well. It's amazing to me what little ears pick up on. I know we always say "Bless You" when anyone sneezes, but to hear that come out of a child's mouth without being prompted? Jared and I just looked at each other in awe. Jared said to me that that was one of the most impressive things he's heard M say, yet. I know, I know, just wait. Anyways, here's some pics from the weekend. Enjoy!
