Only a month until the big O-N-E!!

Grace is 11 months old today! I cannot believe it's gone by so fast! It seems like just yesterday she was the wrinkly little bean that we brought home from the hospital! March was a huge month for her! We were on vacation for two weeks in Idaho and Utah, and Grace learned to crawl just before we left. While we were gone, she got her top front teeth, learned to drink through a straw, learned to pull herself up, learned to say "uh-oh", and when we got back, she learned how to say "grandpa", learned to climb stairs, and learned to cruise on furniture. She'll be walking any second, and then we'll never keep up with her!

While we were in Utah, we stayed with Matt's cousin Jeremy, his wife, Jessica, and their daughter, Brooklyn. Grace and Brooklyn had so much fun together, and were so cute! Jeremy is in charge of sound at the Energy Solutions arena and was able to get us tickets to see Disney on Ice and a Jazz game from the 13th row. We had a blast and are looking forward to seeing them again. Thanks guys!

Here are Grace and Brooklyn at center court after the Jazz beat the Wizards:

Grace loved to play with all of Brooklyn's toys while we were there. Grace learned to crawl pretty fast thanks to Brookly, who's been walking for several months. She and Grace are one month apart. Today is Brooklyn's first birthday. Happy birthday Brooklyn!

We tried to take pictures of the girls while we were there. Needless to say, we ended up making an appointment at Target.

Matt and Jeremy had lots of fun riding their uncle Russ's toys:

We had to stop at the museum in Blackfoot!

Grace LOVES bathtime! She is just so cute in the tub. I am going to miss these days. Time just seems to be flying by so quickly!
