Jon and I got Finn in January of 2006. He was 4 months old having been born just 5 days before we were married. As you can see from early posts (pre-Lydda Grace) on this blog, he is an extremely photogenic cat and has had lots of adventures!
I'm going to try to get some pictures of him and Lydda Grace in the next few days.
Gran came for a visit and we had a great time with her! She kept Lydda Grace Thursday morning while I ran errands and then we went out for lunch and to the park with Lydda Grace. I am so excited to have discovered this beautiful park as I know we'll enjoy it over the years.
Rockin' the shades! Gran brought Lydda Grace these sunglasses! She keeps them on surprisingly well. I laugh everytime I see them on her, it's impossible not to!
After a long day (and a refusal to nap on Lydda Grace's part) she finally quiets down to read.
This picture was taken today. It's hard to see from the picture but LG was a mess! She won't eat chicken well of the spoon, but if I mush it into little balls she will pick it up and eat it. Hands, hair, face, dress... chicken everywhere.
After dinner we practiced waving and clapping. She has just picked this up in the last day or so. It's so funny to watch her little mind process and get excited about something so simple. Of course Mama and Dada get pretty excited over the simple stuff too :o)
We were in Chapin this past weekend for my mom's birthday (my sisters and I threw a dinner party for her which was a lot of fun!!). We got Lydda Grace all dolled up to meet all the guests and then she went to bed and slept through the whole thing! I'll post some more pictures of that event when I get them from my parent's camera.
In the meantime....
We took these pictures Sunday morning before church at the Lindler's home (next door). They had some beautiful azealas! My mom made this dress for our friend Emily Gaddis who was the flower girl in our wedding. Evelyn, Emily's mom thought Lydda Grace might enjoy wearing it too.
And here's a sneak peek of Lydda Grace's Easter dress. This is the first dress I have ever smocked. My mom put it together, but I smocked and did the hem. I finished it last night and couldn't wait to put it on Lydda Grace this morning!
I can't get over how big Lydda Grace is! Just 8 months ago she was Grayson's size!
Look for our feature film due out next month.
For the record, when I stopped filming she actually got one in her mouth!
I'm contemplating submitting the first one to America's Funniest Home Videos... is that show still around? And is the video really that funny or is it that funny to me just because she's my child?
