Glenn and I hosted the 4th annual Pajama Jammy Jam on New Years Eve.  We had a very low-key night just the way we like it!

I came home today and found our "bird" asleep on her side.   Andrea says it reminds her of how piglets sleep.  How cute!!!

Christmas at Mama B and Buford's house.  Last year two of us were pregnant and there were no kids. This year there were 5 grandchildren!!  My how things change.

A few pictures from Thome Christmas on Christmas Day.  Gracie had fun opening presents and playing with her cousin Lauren and uncle Michael.

We are all about our hands these days.  She started with just the one hand and has progressed to eating both hands at the same time.  Her newest thing is trying to suck on her hand and the pacifier at the same time!

Tonight we had our first annual "Girls Christmas Party".    We have been friends since we all worked at Outback together- at least 6 years ago.  It's crazy how much our lives change from year to year.

Gracie rolled over from her tummy to her back tonight!  Just once- we couldn't get her to do it again.  Glenn and I both saw it though.  Very fun!
Glenn is very proud of getting this shot of Gracie's smile!  What a cutie (if I do say so myself!)

Gracie was baptized today!  It was such a special day and we were so proud.  Glenn's dad is a deacon and was able to assist with the vows at our wedding and do Gracie's baptism.  It makes it so personal and special.  I love it!  Just another one of the perks of being a Thome!  Thanks so much to everyone that came to celebrate.  We had a wonderful day.

These are two of my new favorite pics of Gracie!  The first is naked time on the changing table... always fun!  And the second is Gracie ready for daycare with the cute little hat that she borrowed from her cousin Lauren.

We're getting ready for Gracie's baptism and wanted to send a reminder to anyone who would like to join us.  Gracie will be baptized after the 11:30 mass at St. Theresa's on Sunday.  We're going to host lunch afterwards at our house.  

Things are going well in the Thome household.  Gracie is playing with toys full-force now.  She's really learning to entertain herself and can keep happy with her fingers in her mouth for a pretty long time.  Of course, what do I know?  This is my first time!  But it's long enough for Glenn and I to get in a meal without doing the baby trade-off.  

She even looked like she might roll over tonight.  But she didn't get it done.  Fine with me!  I'm scared of her becoming too mobile!

Gracie is really getting in the holiday spirit with her new Santa outfit!  We went Christmas shopping today and Gracie was a very good girl.  It's amazing how much better she is these days.  I don't have to run for the door as soon as she opens her eyes!
