Itty Bitty

On Tuesday, we had to take Gracelyn Faith to the doctor. Our sweet love has an ear infection in her right ear. While we were there, the nurse weighted her. Gracelyn weighs 12 pounds and 10 ounces and is 24 inches tall. I can't believe our little girl is getting so big. Well, not really. She is 25% for weight and 50% for height. She is really an itty bitty, but to me it seems like she is getting so big.

Here is a picture of our itty bitty. This picture was taken today after church...right before nap, so it was not the best time to try and take photos. She is wearing a dress and hat that my sister, Joli, and I found at a second hand store in Charleston for $8. Charleston has the best second hand stores.

Well, I need to get ready for the week. God bless!

Gracelyn Faith

Okay, Matt has Gracelyn Faith so I have a few minutes to update about everything that has been going on the last few days. It has been busy. My in-laws left, we took the Christmas decorations down, I cleaned most of the house, changed a lot of diapers, nursed a sick husband and I started an online business…well, in the process of doing it.

Well, on to more info on my new business adventures. Being the brain dead mom that I have become, I could not think of a cool, yet pretty, yet sweet name for my new business. I wanted a name that was about Gracelyn Faith…being that she is my inspiration and all. Well, I asked my ever so wise sister and she nailed it on her first try. Gracelyn Faith. No, not my little girl, it’s the name for my shop. What prettier name is there?! None! So that is the name. It couldn’t be sweeter, cooler, or prettier. It is kind of like Vera Bradley or Michaels.

At Gracelyn Faith, I will be selling heartfelt and love filled handmade items that are completely inspired around our Gracelyn Faith. I will have items that I have made for her or am making for other people. I am so excited! I will be sure to post a link when I have everything up and running.

Gracelyn and I went shopping yesterday for items that we needed for all our upcoming crafting. We had the best time. I am so grateful that she loves to shop. After visiting my new favorite store, Hobby Lobby, (I have been there 3 times in 4 days and it is 45 minutes away) we went to have a delicious lunch at my favorite coffee place. It is a little place called Starbucks….ever heard of it? Gracelyn had yummy Similac Organic milk and I had a humongous Mocha Frap with sugar free caramel and a bacon sandwich.

Gracelyn has started this new thing of playing with her food. She likes to stick her tongue out and roll it around the nipple of her bottle. It is rather cute and funny so you can’t help but laugh at her. This of course makes her do it even more. Then, she starts laughing and her milk goes everywhere. Well, Gracelyn was doing this in the busy jam-packed smallest Starbucks ever and of course I laughed at her and had to take so pictures. This went on for a few minutes and when I looked up, I noticed the we had an audience watching us. I just smiled because I knew they could not help but look at my too cute baby girl. That was such a cool new feeling!

Well, Matt just came and handed me Little Miss. He has to get the money ready of the pizza guy. Pizza---yum! We better enjoy it…diets start in the morning!

God Bless!
