Daddy was on call on Saturday, but he spent most of the day at home. At one point Julia said she wanted to sit on the couch by Gracie, and "Mommy, you need your camera!" So we took this picture! Daddy eventually did have to go to the hospital, but he was glad to be at home as long as he was!!
Gracie has been working on sitting up and is getting very good at it. She still needs a little supervision, but LOVES being up now! We will get some pics of both Julia and Gracie together soon, but I snapped this one just of Gracie while Julia was napping today!
Gracie got a "new" toy this week and is doing so good in it! She has almost figured out all the activities and has SO much fun with it! She thinks that she is such a big girl now that she gets to "stand up" in her "bouncy toy" (as Julia calls it!).
Of course we couldn't take a picture of Gracie without Julia getting her picture taken. She even picked her own venue for the picture, the Elmo chair!
Daddy came home from work and Julia told him to close his eyes and "go night-night" and then brought him all her night-night toys! We played a fun game of "where's daddy" underneath all the toys! Oh what fun it is to be a dad of two girls!
Jackson turned 5 this week so we had a little birthday party for him after bathtime on Wednesday night! Julia got to pick out birthday treats for him today at the gourmet dog store and you can see his great treats that she picked out.
Jackson loved getting his birthday treats from Julia and she enjoyed singing happy birthday to him. Everyone that she has seen today has found out from her that it was Jackson's birthday and that he was getting treats for it!
A cute little pic of Gracie - she was enjoying watching Jackson eat his treats and playing with his new ball that the girls gave him! Happy 5th birthday, Jackson - we LOVE you!
I found Julia putting on her sandals "all by herself" last Wednesday morning so I had to make sure that I got a shot of "I do it MYSELF, mommy!" She can slide her foot into the shoe and now we have to work on getting the straps into the buckles!
Julia got a new swimsuit cover-up that one of Granny's friends made for her! Isn't it adorable? She got to wear it to Water Day at school last week and looked SO cute!
