Dinnertime!

We decided to go ahead and start giving Grace a little bit of rice cereal at dinnertime. She loves it!! After 4 days of just giving her a couple bites we mixed up a little more tonight since last night she seemed to want to keep eating when her bowl was empty. She is becoming a little pro with the spoon. I think pretty soon we will start letting her have cereal at breakfast too!
Here are a couple pictures and videos of her first few bites

Growing up

While we were unpacking we decided to clean out Grace's closet. She outgrew all of her little 3 month Carter outfits while we were in the states and there was more outfits in her closet that needed to be boxed up as well. Here is how much she has grown in pictures!
Then...
And now...
She has grown a lot in 3 months! She is also a LOT more vocal. It is so cute to just sit and talk with her.


Say CHEESE!!

And now a new video because I haven't posted one in a loooong time.

And JLC asked how much longer we have in Japan.... We have 2 more years left on this beautiful island!

3 Month Photos

While we were in Oklahoma my mom took Grace's 3 month photos. Here are my favorites!
She was laughing in this one

Home Sweet Home

We made it home last night about 10:30 after another very long day of travel. It was great seeing everyone back in the states and we had a wonderful time. But it sure does feel good to be home!

Here are some of our travel pictures. I will post some of our trip once we are a little more settled.

We made it!!

We made it to Oklahoma after 32 hours of travelling. We had a short connection at our port of entry and because of customs we didn't have enough time to re-check our bags so they had to re-route us. That added about 6 hours onto our travel time but we are here! Grace did VERY well on all of the flights and she seems to be adjusting well to the time change (better than us!) She is having a little but of trouble adjusting to a new place though and mainly doesn't want to sleep by herself. Maybe that is partly because I had to hold her for about 25 hours straight!

Facing a 39 hour day

Ever wanted more time in a day? I think 24 hours is plenty but tomorrow is going to be 39 hours for us! We will be taking off tomorrow morning for the airport. After 24 hours of travelling and 4 airports later we will be in Oklahoma with family! A friend of ours is going with us so she can drive our car back and then she will leave it with another friend who will be picking us up when we get back home in 3 weeks. We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends we can trust and count on for anything. I mean we are leaving our cars and home for them! Sadly, she will be moving while we are gone. But we will still have friends here and a wonderful church with lots of wonderful people :-)
