6 months

Grace Alexis 6 months old!

Oh my! Miss Grace turned 6 months on September 13th!! I know that this is a late post but oh well!
She is growing in leaps and bounds!! When we went to the doctor on Tuesday, September 20, 2011 and wow she is huge! She is weighing in at 16 pounds 7 ounces and measuring at 27 inches long. She is in the 50% percentile for her weight and 95th for her height! It is amazing to me to see her so big cause we looked back at Blase and he was in the 25th for weight and 95th for height. So both my kids were long but Blase was always tiny!

On top of getting her shots and check up I also got her ears pierced. My parents paid for that and that was her baptism gift from them. She did as good as one could expect for getting shots and her ears done! She is also teething and has one lone tooth popping through on the bottom! I will have to get a picture once it gets a little higher!
Blase is doing really good. Busy with school. Mommy is also getting busy now that the "fall" season is upon us we have more things going on! MOPS has resumed!! And now is when we start all our crafts for the holiday seasons (Boo shirts, trick or treating, Thanksgiving shirts, park play-dates, Disney play-dates, Rudolf shirts, Lunch with Santa) Oh my!! But this is my favorite time of year cause we get to see a lot of our friends often!
Thanks about all thats going on here....We do have some news to share but not just yet! But keep a watch for it (And no i am not preggo!)

Science Center and Life

Well the last couple weeks seem to have just flown by. Between school twice a week and Jason working so much the days seem to just blend together! On August 26th I loaded up my car and headed to the Orlando Science Center. Now I have to admit I am a science junkie! When I was teaching science was my favorite subject to teach and I loved when I was a kid going to the Liberty Science Center in Jersey! We also went to Denver to visit Jason's family we went to the Denver Museum of Science and Nature back in 2009. However, I have never been to the science center right here in Orlando! I know shocking! So I loaded up the kids packed a lunch and met the girls at the Science Center! It was awesome! Blase LOVED the "Cherry Game" as he called it. It was trees that had orange balls the the kids picked and put into a box. Then they took the
oranges over to the juice factory and then put the box on a ramp that eventually put the oranges back in the trees. I think he called it the Cherry Game cause it reminded him of "High-Ho Cherry-O" and we have been playing that a lot lately at home. This was his favorite part of the whole place and this is ALL he wanted to do!

Grace is doing very well. She will be 6 months on the 13th! Oh my where has the time gone! She is a wonderful baby and very chill! LOL! She is starting to sit up and lately she has been showing the signs of starting to get ready to crawl!! She can shimmy her way to toys and I am not really looking forward to having two mobile children!! AHH!! I have been enjoying Blase going to school cause that gives me some time with just her or to just clean. Lately, she comes home from dropping him off at school and takes a nap till its almost time to pick him up! I guess it cannot complain about some alone time! (or cleaning time) She goes to the doctor on the 20th so i will be able to give more details about weight and all. Oh and last night we had a successful dinner night! She actually ate willingly pears and some rice cereal! This is a first! Blase was not opposed to food at all! But Grace was not very happy about the whole situation. So last night I tried again and she actually ate! I was very pleased. The only downside is that her fat little legs done really fit in the Bumbo seat so she is very uncomfortable and we only have one highchair. So i have a very strong feeling that we will be headed to target to get Blase a booster seat and then give his highchair to Grace! :( my Blase is already big enough for a booster seat at the dinner table! Where did those 3 years go already?!
