See you later Grandma!

This past week we were very busy fitting in lots of fun moments with Grandma before she moved back to South Carolina. We went to Peek-A-Boo play center and showed her all of the neat toys. Caroline especially loves the music room. We also went out to eat quite a bit since dining out and being social is high on Caroline's "Fun Things To Do" list.

We played dress up and enjoyed just playing around the house...



We gave Grandma lots of kisses...




and we had a debate about current events :)


We said, " See you later" to Grandma this past Saturday. We were very sad to see her go, but are excited to go and visit her this Summer.




We love you and miss you Grandma and can't WAIT to "See you soon!"

Welcome!

I've been wanting to start a family blog for some time now, but I just haven't gotten around to it. So many things have happened this past year, that although I've wanted to share each and every moment, I've been busy living them.
We've settled into our new house and are enjoying making it a home. The animals love having the extra space to roam and Caroline loves having her own room to crawl around in. This spring will add new projects to the list; back deck, landscaping etc. but for now we're just enjoying tinkering around.
Caroline is growing and developing so fast. She's about 9.5 months, 17.5 pounds, 28 1/4 inches, just cut her second tooth and is very close to standing on her own. She constantly makes us laugh, whether she's being goofy or her very serious self. As she has always been, she's very curious and loves to figure things out, on her own! We have quite the little independent imp on our hands! I can't believe, in just a couple of months, we'll be celebrating her first birthday!
My mom is headed back to South Carolina in a week and we are all going to miss her terribly. Caroline loves looking for her in the mornings. A trip South is definitely in order the end of this Summer!
I hope to stay pretty current with this blog, in addition to my cooking blog. I feel bad that I haven't posted all of the silly pictures and videos of Caroline for you all, but if you desire you can email me if you don't already have the family Shutterfly page. For now, I'll leave you with Caroline's current monthly picture.
