Miss Independent

Pierce has discovered cups. Not due to anything we have taught her. Just her careful observation. If there is a cup ANYWHERE within her radar, she reaches out her hands and stretches herself like gumbie until she has it. She holds it with both hands and tips it and sucks on it. Occasionally we'll give her some water as a reward :) She discovered the spoon tonight and grabbed out of my hand twice while I tried to feed her the rice cereal. I believe we may have an independent little thing on our hands!

Pierce goes to the Beach

Pierce has now been to Alex City, Auburn, Atlanta x 2, Nashville, and the beach x 2. Here are pics of the little traveler's second beach trip. I know the pic of Grace and Pierce is fuzzy, but she just leached onto Aunt Grace's arm... so funny! And the 1st pic is of "her Emi!" We love her.

Worth the wait

I just peeked in at my beautiful baby girl and was filled with wonder that she's actually here. It seems like just yesterday that we, and you, were praying and hoping for her. She's so wonderfully perfect and I am loving every minute. A friend gave me a onesie before she was born that said "worth the wait" and she was. Worth every minute.


Pierce loves her daddy. When he walks into the room, she pulls her neck up real straight and gets all bright eyed and gives him this totally dreamy smile. The following pics are either of the two of them, or taken by him. They're in love.

Uncle George and Aunt Brittany

This weekend Pierce and I went to Atlanta to hang out with Uncle George and Aunt Brittany. Once George came down off his caffeine-high, he and Pierce got along great ;) Of course, she loved beautiful Aunt Brittany. Hagen's boyfriend, John Ellis, took some AMAZING pics of Pierce and the 1st 4 on this post are my favorites. If you'd like to book him for your child's portrait, let me know! The video is Pierce blowing kisses and breathing all excited.... super cute.

Rice Cereal

Pierce started eating rice cereal last night. As much as I wanted her to have only breast milk for 6 months(an inexplicable desire, I know) I broke down because she needs to sleep longer at night. Here is some documentation of her 1st experience. She did pretty well, although I don't know how much she actually ingested. Tonight, however, she got quite a bit. So, we'll see how the sleeping goes. I don't even mind getting up at night so much, I just feel like for HER she needs to be getting better at sleeping for long periods of time. Fingers crossed!

Eva Pierce Gamble was baptized on April 6, 2008 by Steve Whitner at Altadena Valley Presbyterian Church. She was a little angel the whole service, never said a peep. The party afterward was wonderful, thanks to many people! (my mom, Barbara, Donna, Sarah and Leigh Ann especially... and of course Peter!) Pierce has stopped spazzing out when the camera flashes, so I've gotten a little silly with the pics again. Here ya go :)

She rolled over!!!!

However, she won't do it for the camera. I got lots of cute video of her while trying to catch her roll over. I believe she's thinking "I am not a circus performer." She mainly rolls over for her daddy. I've seen it twice. So, the result this week is just cute baby pics and a cute video.
