We gave Gracie her first bath this morning. She liked it at first but then started bawling her little eyes out. It was hard giving the bath to her because the tub was so deep and she's a slippery little thing. We finally ended up putting her on the edge of the tub and that seemed to do the trick. I think tomorrow, we will bathe her in the sink!!!

Things seem to be settling down a bit her. Gracie hates having her diaper changed so Jerry and I do a tag team thing. I get everything ready and hand it to him while he does the changing. We both then put the diaper on. We rotate doing this. I think we've also learned the trick to putting Gracie down for her nap. She has to be laid on her tummy and then we rub her back. She loves sucking her thumb!!! Anyway, off we go to the park. Will write soon. We love and miss everyone!!!

Very cute pictures. Little Jerry is very excited to meet his new friend. Your new bathtub will come in very handy when you come home. Let me know when I can babysit.
