08 Watermelon Festival

Wow, so it's on;y 2:00pm and I am exhausted! We had such a bisy day already today. We woke up early and headed to meet Kristel, Colin, Kirstel's mom and Shannon to go to the 2008 Winterville Watermelon Festival Parade. It was Anna-Grace's 1st parade and she loved it. Of course she was all decked out in her Watermelon Outfit. Her favorite things in the parade were the HS bands(she danced and clapped her hands), and the Shriners that rode around on Alligator cars and sprayed water and bubbles. She waved at people and even said Princess when the Watermelon Festival Queen rode by. Then we met up with Daddy (he slept in late becuase he has to work tonight :-( ) and we had lunch, Anna-Grace had a corn dog and french fries.

We walked around some after that and Anna-Grace rode her 1st rides, she rode the Carousel 1st then some Bumble Bee ride. She liked them both a lot and didn't seem scared at all. She's such a dare devil. We ended our trip with some Dippin Dots Ice Cream and headed home. She is now upstairs knocked out for hours I am sure.

Almost There!

Tonight after Anna-Grace and I got home and we got her changed into her jammies, she treated her daddy and me. She would walk from him to me, then from me to him. She did it for about 10 minutes and got so excited because she knew she was doing something big! It's taking her a little while, but I think we are almost there. She will be walking in no time!

Give Me Three Steps..

So for those of you that did not hear my screams of joy last night, Anna-Grace finally took her first steps on her own! She only took three then sat down and laughed but she is well on her way to a full flegged toddler! Of course she did it when there was no camera around so no video or pics, but stay tuned I am sure it won't be long before we are chasing her around the house!

I think her walking had something to do with the Olymipcs being on.....maybe she will be in them one day :-)

Eye teeth are no walk in the park!

So the past week has been a bit challenging! When we came home from Raleigh we quickly discovered Miss Anna-Grace had an ear infection and ALL 4 of her eye teeth coming in. We went to the doctor on Monday and I stayed home with her. She didn't wake up during the night much but she's been real whinny and the wrost dirty diapers I have EVER had to change. 3 of them are in, with 1 more to go, so pray we make it thru the weekend!

The pictures I put up is AG showing off her new teeth, and playing with her favorite Fur Sibling Payton!

A Blast From The Past

This weekend my mom came up to keep Anna-Grace and Chris and I were treated to a weekend with old friends in Raleigh. It started out as just going to hang out with Tripp and Joe (an old friend that used to work at the bar with them). But once we got to Buckhead we saw TONS of Chris's old friends. It was a nice treat to see everyone and talk about old times.

Saturday we did a little bit of shopping (we had to bring Anna-Grace home a present), and had a yummy luch at The Cheesecake Factory. We are home now resting up a bit before the work week begins!
