Hannah Grace and Sissy in BIG church!! We sat in the back just in case!!
She was pointing at everyone and everything! She takes the BEST naps on Sunday's!!

Hannah Grace got moved up this morning to a new Sunday school!! She got moved up to the walker/toddler room today! Dada had to work so it was just us girls going to church! I dropped her off early just to meet her new teachers! She did well with the drop off but when I picked her up they said that she was sad today. :( They took her on a buggy ride around the church to see if she will stop crying and that did it! Thankfully I decided to let her bring Sissy today or I think my pager would have gone off if I didn't! I left church early to go and pick her up so she can experience a little bit of BIG church! She was so alert looking around at everyone and everthing!!

HAPPY 15 mths SWEET BABY GIRL!! It's hard to believe that 15mths ago we were still in the NICU. She had all these wires and feeding tube connected to her. Today you can't even tell she was in the NICU!! Praise the Lord!! Hannah Grace has so much energy!! This girl can go all day long without a nap if you let her! She's a busy little ball of energy!! Today we went to All About Kids! It' a kids place that has inflatables, gymnastics, in door pool, and much more to offer. Today we tried the inflatable zone! We LOVED it!! After we got done playing we ate at Cracker Barrel! We split the vegatable plate! Just the right size!! HG got Mac n Chess, Green Beans, and I got Chicken n Dumplings, and Okra!!

Thursday evenings at Chick Fil A is family night! Kids eat for free! They get a four count chicken nugget meal! I always put a fruit cup with her chicken and give her some of my French fries! She LOVES fruit! Tonight they had the Chick Fil A cow out! HG went right up to him and gave him a hug! They were playin peek a boo when she was eating! And of course we traded in our toy for some ice cream! We LOVE Chick Fil A!!
You can tell she LOVED it!!

Last night I think I discovered what Hannah Grace's FAVORITE food is!! SPAGHETTI!!! We decided to use Elbow noodles instead of regular spaghetti noodels because those are long and slippery. HG went to town on spaghetti last night! I also fixed her Lima Beans to go with and she LOVED em!! Hannah Grace is such a GREAT little eater!!

We finally have our FIRST tooth at 14 (1/2) months!!
Brushing with toddler toothpaste for the FIRST time!!

She thinks that the toothpaste is a treat! She tries to just eat it! She's doing really good brushing her tooth!!

PHEW!! We finally got our FIRST tooth in! We're so proud of her tooth! She looks so cute with just one tooth! We all went to the store one evening and we got her a toothbrush and the toddler toothpaste! I did say TODDLER!!! (So much FUN!) We brush her tooth every morning and evening before she goes to bed! I think she thinks it's a treat because she just eats the toothpaste! She did really good brushing her teeth this morning! We want to get her into a good habit about brushing now! Her second bottom tooth doesn't look far behind! I think we might get a tooth every week at this rate. Pray for me!

This is when I first noticed her tooth!! It was when she was eating ice cream! I hope she didn't get a brain freeze!!
I just had to add these two pictures in here too! This was from today as well! HG LOVES to wear my necklaces and pretends to wear lipstick already!!

HG LOVES to play dress up!!!
This blog is very EXCITING!! Hannah Grace is getting her first tooth (FINALLY)!!! I almost fell out of my seat at Chick Fil A! Erik had to work over night tonight so us girls had a girls night out at Chick Fil A! HG got a 4 piece kids meal with a fruit cup and apple juice. At Chick Fil A you get to trade in your toy for some ice cream! So I decided to get some! I'm so thankful that I did!!! She was opening up her mouth so BIG that I saw a tooth coming in!!! It's her bottom right!! I kept on giving her some just to make sure it was a tooth! She might have gotten a brain freeze too! It's not all the way through yet but it won't be long! I was so excited that I had to remind myself where we were! I am one very HAPPY mommy!! 14 mths old and she's getting her first tooth!! (Please pray for us as we go through teething!!!)
Today was a proud moment!! Hannah Grace walked from the parking lot of Gymboree all the way the door!! I was so EXCITED!! She's walking really GOOD!! I remember bringing her in for the first time in her infant car seat and now she's walking!!
As you can see we fingerpainted yesterday! And she even got to taste some of it!!
Mom not another picture please!

So MESSY!!

Yesterday we had a great day! Hannah Grace got to go over to a friends house to play! They shared so good! Even passies. YUCK!!! Her friend is about to move to Atlanta so we will definetlly get to see them again! This was HG's first friend that she meet at Gymboree! We're gonna miss you Mayala and mom!! Then when we got home HG was suppose to take a nap but that didn't happen. We decided to finger paint!

HG and Dada going through a BIG bubble!!

This weekend we all went to visit The Louisville Science Center! It was so much FUN!! Hannah Grace and Dada got to go through a BIG bubble, Seasme Street Corner was there, drive a pretend bus, and HG's FAVORITE part was to play with the water! We had such a great time! We even saw an I Max movie but of course with a toddler it didn't last long! Before we went to play we all ate lunch at Subway! HG is a GREAT eater! She especially LOVES Strawberries/Blueberries!! We will be going back to the Science Center!!
