Baby Grace is six months old already! She is big and healthy weighing 18 lbs. 1 oz. and is 27 inches long! This little girl is so much fun to have around and always has a smile to share. She is working on rolling over from her back to her tummy and has actually done it once, but I missed it. I set her on her back, went into another room and when I came back she was on her tummy. I knew that would probably happen, but I was still disappointed. Grace has a super cute little laugh and she is quite ticklish, so I tickle her a lot so I can hear her laugh. She loves to chew on anything she can get her hands on, this includes toys, books, fingers and especially Mom's hair. She is such a great baby and we all adore her.

The other night I gave Sophia a mani/pedi. She LOVES IT when I do this. She loves it so much that she usually asks me to polish them in a new color as soon as they are dry. Richie gets a little jealous of the attention. As Sophia's feet were soaking he asked if the foot bath was only for girls. I need to figure out something to do with him that doesn't end with polish on his nails.

Sophia had mixed feelings about starting primary. We tried to prepare her for it by telling her how much fun it was and that she was going to be a big girl. I think she was kind of excited to go but ultimately she didn't like the idea of not going to nursery any more. That transition from nursery to sunbeam is pretty hard. The first Sunday went pretty well. She went into the primary room without any complaints or sadness. The next Sunday wasn't as smooth, when I tried telling her that Jesus wants her for a sunbeam she yelled, "I don't want to be a sunbeam!" And it has been hard each week since, If I linger for too long she clings to me and cries that she wants me to stay. But she is always cheerful when it is time to go home and she says she had a good time, so it will get easier as time goes on. I am sure my little Sophia is a handful for her teacher, but how can you not love all her spunk?
I took these pictures on her first day of primary. She is such a poser!
Sometimes they are so sweet together.
