Grace’s new tricks

September 25, 2009 · filed under: Grace Evelyn by Geoff

This month has seen Grace learning all kinds of new tricks. As she approaches her 5-month birthday, she has begun to master sitting up on her own, real laughs, rolling everywhere she wants to go, and eating real food.

Let me correct that, by “real food” I really mean infant cereal. But in any case, she’s started to try out eating cereal with no real disasters yet.

And a video of our first few bites:

Grace has also surprised us with her new laugh, and her excitement for the Cyclones. She sure was tuckered out after cheering for the Cyclones all day!

And a video that kinda shows Grace’s new laugh:

Her next new trick is her mastery of the roll. Turns out at daycare Grace chases the boys, which doesn’t make Dad happy. Heather puts Grace down across the room from Jackson, and she rolls her way over to him. Yikes, Dad is nervous.

And with all of this going on, Jill still had the time to meet up with Paul & Darla to watch Hannah & Sarah run in Huxley, and hosted Grandpa & Grandma Janes:

Its been a busy month, but we’ve enjoyed every bit of it.  Grace makes her mom & dad so proud and continues to amaze us with every day.  We look forward to sharing all of her new tricks with all of you soon!  And don’t forget to check out the additional pictures in the gallery.
