With a week and a half of filming under our belts, we finally have some good footage!

Grace is learning to do new things and improving her motor skills every day. Not only can she talk and laugh, but she reaches to grab things and is now sometimes successful! [cg_gallery] gallery_body_image_lightbox(10277, ‘right’, 150, ‘grace12week’); [/cg_gallery] She loves to grab the quilt above her changing pad, actually plays with the toys under her gym, and can even hold and shake her own rattle.  She also loves bathtime, especially the kicking and splashing part. Daddy’s girl may just turn out to be our little swimmer!

She continues to amaze us with all of her new tricks.  Most recently she even rolled over!  Although it was only once, and most likely accidental…as proud parents we are claiming it anyway.

So enough of this, lets get to the videos.  In her first video, Grace is caught laughing and enjoying playtime:

In this video, Grace shows how much she enjoys bathtime:

And finally, a few clips of Grace playing with her rattle:

Even just watching these videos as we make this post it makes us laugh and our hearts smile.  We can’t wait to see what we can catch her doing next!

As always, there are plenty of additional pics from the many visitors and visits that we’ve had over the past couple of weeks.  Check them out in the gallery.

We are certainly having fun with each new day. Grace, Geoff and I are looking forward to seeing family and friends again soon so that you all can see her in action!
