Springtime

April 4, 2011 · filed under: Grace Evelyn by Geoff

It was springtime in the Janes’ household. The flowers were blooming, the birds were chirping, and the ducks were quacking! Dad had been talking about getting me my very own ducks since last spring when we visited the ducks, chicks and bunnies at Orscheln’s. This last Saturday Mom was busy decorating my room, so Dad snuck away with me and Grandpa to look for ducks.

We had to look REALLY hard, but we found some! And then two of them decided they didn’t like their home at Orscheln’s! So they just had to come home with me!

I love them and wish we could play together all day, but Mom & Dad say the ducks need to sleep. “Shhhhh” I remind them. We check on them often, and sometimes read them bedtime stories.

When they are awake, Little Quack likes to chase me across the kitchen:

Introducing our BIG GIRL

April 3, 2011 · filed under: Grace Evelyn, Projects by Geoff

Sometime in the last 6 weeks while we were working on her new bed, our baby girl grew up. She’s now:

  1. Potty trained
  2. Talking constantly
  3. Giving orders
  4. Sleeping in her big bed

And that leads me to the point of this.  Grace is officially moved into her new big girl room.  Aside from a few little things, her bed is officially finished.  Starting last Friday night, she began sleeping in her new bed.  She took to it with no problems and acts as though she’s been sleeping in that room for years.

Not only does she love sleeping in her big girl room, the whole family has been playing and hanging out in her room together.  We all read books in her bed, sit in the house, and slide down the slide.  The new room has become one of our favorite family hang-out spots, at least until DJ decides to show up.

Here’s a few shots of the last few things we needed to get done:
