Needless to say everyone was overjoyed to see her. It's always nice to get to spend time with our families and just relax and stuff our faces.....that's pretty much all we did! Our Cowboys pulled of a nice Thanksgiving victory so Chris was Happy, now if they could just beat the Packers tomorrow we will be doing even better!
Not much to report our "little" girl will be 6 months old on Saturday!! I can't believe it!!!!!!! She is still growing like crazy and keeps me busy buying new clothes :-) She is just such a blessing and such a gift and we are so thankful for her!

As you can see from the picture Anna-Grace was a Dalmatian for Halloween, she looked so cute, but her costume was way to hot and we had to take her out of it.
I am still amazed every day at the new things she learns. She is still playing her music on her bouncy seat, but has also learned how to pull off her dragonflies and put them right in her mouth! She used to hate tummy time, but is now a bit more interested in it and can push up and look all around. Something tells me she will be crawling before too long! She is sitting up on her own some now, every now and again her head gets a little heavy, but she's doing great! We wieghed her today on our scale and she is 16 pounds and 2 ounces! We have started trying her on some solids...we have tried cereal, bananas and peas, and so far so good!
We took her to church today and dressed her all up, she looked so cute!
And last but not least, to get you in the holiday spirit, this next picture is of Anna-Grace's 1st visit with Santa!! She loved him!

This weekend was another fun filled football weekend. The Pirates hosted their biggest rival NC State and as most of you know the family had to take a backseat to our Pirates and cheer on Chris's favorite the Wolfpack. Anna-Grace once again was a HUGE hit on the tailgating field and brought her daddy's team luck again! She was truly adorable and Chris and I both said we can't wait for the day that she gets excited about a tailgate weekend! A lot of people were dissapointed she was not wearing purple, but they still thought she was so cute!
We took her to the pumpkin patch the weekend before last. We went with our friends Steve and Shannon and their little girl Ashlyn, I don't know that they enjoyed it, but it was a nice family outing and we look forward to next year when they are running around and picking out their own pumpkins! We are getting all prepared for Anna-Grace's 1st Halloween, she is going to be a Dalmation and I can hardly wait.
She just got her first tooth yesterday, it's been trying to make it's way through for a couple of weeks now, but finally broke through yesterday. It is by far the cutest little tooth ever and she is really doing great with it....a far cry from all the horror stories I have heard about other kids teething.
Chris and I are doing well, I just celebrated my birthday Last Thursday the 18th Chris's mom was here watching the baby so we got to go for a nice dinner and then his dad and step mom kept her so we could go out with some friends Sat night after the game. I look back on all the changes that have taken place in just one year and it really baffles me at how different things are, but I wouldn't trade them for anythign in the world!

I feel like I say this everyday but Anna-Grace is growing so fast...everyday she discovers something new about her surroundings. She is quickly getting bored with her bouncy chair, and more excited about her play gym and toys. She is still sleeping through the night (thank god!, and loves to laugh and smile! Everyday is a new adventure for her. Believe it or not our child also LOVES football. If Chris has it on the TV she has to be where she can see it, we may not have had a boy, but for now Chris has a little sports buddy:-) She goes back to the doctor in a week for her 4 month check-up and shots :-( Last time I weighed her she was a whopping 12.4 pounds!
I put another slideshow up below of some pictures from tailgating and just some random pictures! Enjoy and until next time....

Since Chris was gone this weekend I spent my first weekend alone with Anna-Grace and we did just fine. I was worried about not having him here but we managed. My friend Kristel and her little boy (Anna-Grace's future husband) came over and played and me and Anna-Grace went shopping and out to eat at Waffle House today.
Other than that we just spend most of our time watching our little one continue to grow, according to our home scale she has reached the 10 lb mark and she is sooo long. I think she might be tall and yes, she still looks exactly like her daddy . We are getting geared up for football season ECU plays UNC and STATE at home this year we can't wait to see Anna-Grace in her NC State cheerleader outfit!
Below are some of the latest pictures of Anna-Grace and her playdates and some from her 1st professional pictures! Enjoy!

Just wanted to create this blog to kep everyone of our friends and families updated on what's going on with us......with so much going on, it's hard to pick up the phone and call everyone and update them so I figured this would be easier. So keep checking back for updates, we will try to keep it as current as possible!We can hardly believe that 6 weeks has gone by so fast! Anna-Grace is growing so big, and according to the scale at our house weighs 8lbs and 4 oz. She is finally growing into her 0-3 months stuff, which I am so grateful for....finally no more onesies! Everyone always told me that they grow up so fast...I am starting to realize they were right. A friend of mine just had her little girl last week and we went to the hospital to see them. When I held that little 6lb 11 oz girl I realized just how much Anna-Grace had grown!
The dogs love her just as much as we do! I was kind of worried at how they would be especially since they are so big, but they are really gentle with her and love giving her little kisses (especially Tyson).
I went for my 6 week check-up yesterday, and aside from headaches and back pain (side effects from my spinal) and some mild pain in my tummy things are A OK! Anna-Grace goes for her 2 month check-up on August 2nd...where she will have to get her first set of shots. Daddy will definitely have to go with us because I don't think I will be able to stand to see her in pain:-(I am also heading back to work tomorrow, I still technically have 2 weeks before I have to go back, but I need to start getting my body and mind prepared for getting 2 people ready in the morning (as most of you know I do good to get myself ready :-). Not looking forward to going back but you gotta do what you gotta do.
Chris is doing well, still grinding out those summer days praying for it to be time for the kids to go back to school. Not only am I going to miss Anna-Grace when I go back to work, but I will also miss being home when Chris gets home for lunch....and dinner for that matter. He is such a great dad and I always knew he would be. Anna-Grace has truly blessed our lives we could not have asked for God to give us a more perfect child (yeah I know ask us that again when she is 16!). I put a slideshow up of some pictures from our summer so far, hope you enjoy :-)
Chris, Vickie and Anna-Grace(Emmitt, Tyson and Payton too!)
