How Did This Happen??? Grace Anna is 9 MONTHS OLD!


Okay, in the past month Grace has decided that she wants to be a big girl.  At first I was loving all the new things, but after looking through pictures today & updating her monthly picture frame I am not so sure I am ready for this! 

Weight: 16lbs (my tiny baby)

Height: 26”

In just a few short weeks she has accomplished the following:

Pulling up to standing, scooting, CRAWLING, clapping, playing peek-a-boo, standing by herself for a second,and she ate her 1st chick-fil-a nugget (that’s a major milestone here at The Vuong Family).

Now that she is so mobile I sometimes forget that she doesn’t always stay right where I leave her.  Collin never wanted to be out of my sight, so I assumed she would be the same, but I am continually amazed at how different they are.  Grace is much more independent at this age than Collin is/was.  Recently I looked into the living room where I had left her in the middle of a million toys and I could not see her.  I jokingly said to Collin, “Oh no!  Where is Grace?  Help me find her!”  He had a blast “finding her” in the corner behind a chair…here she is in her hiding spot.  Then of course, Collin wanted to hide too! 


I absolutely love the fact that they are starting to play together!  It makes me so happy & I love seeing Collin be so sweet to his baby sister.  They were making faces at each other through the glass door…


We also discovered today that Grace LOVES the vacuum cleaner!  She was in Collin’s room playing with daddy & brother while I started to vacuum her room.  Next thing I know she is crawling faster than I have ever seen right towards me with her eyes open sooo wide!  I thought she was scared, so I turned the vacuum off & picked her up, then she started crying.  I moved into our bedroom to vacuum there & she came across the hall again into our room.  I just kept vacuuming & she kept coming until she got close enough to touch it.  It was hilarious how excited she was!  I was especially shocked since big brother HATES it when I vacuum & until today would cry every.single.time.  However, once he saw how much attention Grace was getting for liking the vacuum, he decided it wasn’t so bad & even worked up to touching it while it was running – it is amazing what a little peer pressure can do!!

In other Grace news, she will answer/look  if you say “Hey Crazy”…hehe  makes mommy laugh every time Smile.  I guess it sounds similar enough to “Gracie”, but it still makes me giggle – and it is said in a very loving way, from a mommy who is equally as “Crazy” as her sweet little big-girl daughter.


My crazy baby love!
