First time for everything

Grace has celebrated several firsts over the past few days. She's officially on the move. Put away the legos and keep the basement door closed because this girl is a crawler!

Gracie became quite the foodie this weekend as she enjoyed adding whole wheat pasta, Havarti cheese, whole peas, cantaloupe and cheerios to her plate. She is becoming much more efficient at delivering the pieces of food to her mouth and loves to flash a big grin when she succeeds.

This morning Scott walked into her nursery and found her sitting up tall on her knees and leaning over her crib. Lowering her crib had been on our to-do list this weekend, but we never quite got around to it. It became a priority this morning!

Lastly, Grace used her teeth for the first time this weekend while nursing. It was the first time I ever had to tell her "no" in my not-as-nice Mommy voice. She stared at me with her wide eyes, and I could sense she was trying to remind me that that tone of voice was reserved for her brothers. I'm sure I'll NEVER have to use that voice with her again...especially when she is a teenager! :)

Big firsts for my growing girl. Makes me smile and tear up all that the same time.
