A New Year

We said goodbye to 2015 with a super fun night at home, just the four of us.  2015 was such an awesome year.  It was the year we found out we were pregnant and going to have a baby girl, William turned 3, we had the best trip to the beach since we had William, we celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary on the same day we welcomed Anna Grace into the world, William saw snow for the first time, and we became a family of four!  It was an awesome year that will be hard to beat.    

We spent New Year's Eve cooking a yummy steak dinner and doing fireworks in the front yard.  William had the best time!  The fireworks were such a hit that we had some friends over the next night to do more.  I've never heard William say "again" so many times.
I pray that 2016 holds as many specials moments as 2015 did!

My Boy

Sweet baby girl gets lots of posts since she's so young......but believe me, our not so baby boy still gets a LOT of attention.  I'll be doing a 4 year old post soon.  {insert a lot of tears! how is he so old}  This little guy loves playing outside.  He would stay at the playground all day long if you'd let him.  We love going on walks together and he's my little baking helper!  

We may not get the same one on one time we did before Anna Grace was born, but we make time for FUN!

Anna Grace 6 Months Old

It's hard to believe Anna Grace is already 1/2 year old.  Every day with her is a happy day.  We feel so blessed to call her ours.  God sure knew what he was doing when he sent her to us. William is the best big brother and Gordon is turning into a fabulous daddy of a princess!

Weight:  15 pounds 5 ounces (34th percentile) up 3 lbs in 2 months
Height: 26.5 inches (76th percentile) up 1.5 inches in 2 months
Head: 40 centimeters (3rd percentile)
Eating:  The week Anna Grace turned 6 months old we started giving her cereal.  Unlike William, she knew just what to do what the spoon and food.  :)  I'd noticed that she'd become much more interested in what we were eating during meals.  So, it's not much of a surprise that she was a happy girl when she got some food!  After a few days of the cereal we gave her squash!  So far so good.  Anna Grace either has a 6 oz bottle when she wakes up around 6 or I nurse her.  She usually has 3-4 six oz bottles at school and then eats once more when we get home, before bedtime.     
Development:  Baby girl can move toys from one hand to another and although she doesn't babble much she has done it....I'm thinking she's like her dad, only talks when he needs to.  A week after she turned 6 months she rolled over from stomach to back.  I honestly don't think she'll ever roll over the other direction.  She absolutely hates being on her stomach.
Other:  Anna Grace was baptized at the end of February!  We had a great weekend celebrating her with our closest friends and family.  She also got to go to the rodeo carnival for the first time.  :)
Things She Loves:  She still gets swaddled at bedtime and sleeps like a champ 95% of the time.  She loves looking at mirrors and still adores her brother.  She will laugh hysterically if you kiss her belly or throw her in the air.  She also loves watching the older kids playing.
Things She Hates:  Besides tummy time there really isn't anything.  She definitely likes me the most but Gordon is starting to win her over.  This sweet little baby only cries if she is tired or hungry.  
From The Doctor:  I can't say that Anna Grace enjoyed her 6 month check up too much.  Poor baby hated the shots and wasn't a fan of the ear and mouth exam.  As I've suspected for a while, baby girl has torticollis.  We finally got a referral to see physical therapy and to see a specialist about baby girl's sweet little noggin.  Anna Grace has a few challenges ahead of her, but we are in the best town, with the best children's hospital, to get her what she needs!

Every, Single, Day,  This little girl amazes us.  She is a happy, lovable, cuddly, strong little fighter.

This quote has never meant more to me than it does now.....LET HER SLEEP FOR WHEN SHE WAKES, SHE WILL MOVE MOUNTAINS.
