Aquarium


We went to the Aquarium a few weeks ago, at the beginning of the summer. It was great for my kids, we got to look at everything and when the kids got tired, we had already looked at everything.

Gracie liked it the most. If you look at the reflection in the glass (pictured above) you can see Gracie's smiling face. She loved looking at everything and would talk to it all and try to touch it.


Junior liked climbing through the coral reefs that they had there.


Abby, being our climber, liked the frog.


This is how Abby measures up to a penguin.

"I Know You"

At bedtime, we do Stories and Songs and the kids get to choose one story and one song each. Abby is in love with anything Disney Princess. Sleeping Beauty is her favorite (because she wears pink). So she always wants to hear the Sleeping Beauty song and story even though she had never seen it until a few months ago. This is a video of her singing the song. I think she is going to be a music lover, she even picks out the notes on the piano to this song and sings along. (It's just the first part, but still pretty good for a four year old.)

Abby Cadabby


Abby turned four in May. The poor girl, she had to wait for everyone in her family to have their birthday's before her. It was a long couple on months, but she took full advantage when it was finally her turn.

The moment she woke up on her birthday, she informed me that she was to be called "The Birthday Girl" and didn't answer to anything else the rest of the day. If you forgot, she would say."You mean Birthday Girl?"

This is a picture I took of her when she was about 1 1/2 years old, just a couple of months older than Gracie is now. I chose it because you can tell from her face, even at that age, she was going to be a fun child. Abby is full of love for everyone and makes friends where ever she goes. She is called Abby Cadabby by most of the neighbor kids. We all love her a ton!!

My Little Monkey

Yes, this is how she crawls. All the time, every time. I think it must come from the Corry side of the family :)

Gracie's Firsts

I started this post clear back in the beginning of April, but I couldn't get it to work.  So finally, here it is.
  


Gracie sat up at six months
started crawling at eight months (video to follow later)
got her first tooth at eight months
stood up at 10 months
took her first step on her first birthday
finally took a bottle (that I had to get her to drink by using chocolate milk at first) at 12 months
and only started sleeping through the night around 11 months




Gracie turned one last month. Please don't look too closely to the cake, it didn't turn out how it was supposed too. I thought I found a recipe to make whipped cream frosting, but I didn't...Now that I've said that I'm sure you have all noticed the cake instead of the cutie featured.



 Gracie is such a doll. She gets comments all the time on how she looks like a Cabbage Patch Doll. When she is looking at people, she doesn't crack a smile or anything. I think she is going to be an actress or something because she is always studying thier faces.



I think that she is going to be the most spoiled child in her family, as she was born into a family of four that love her so much. Junior and Abby with both do anything for her and love to play with her any chance they get.
