lesson learned

Okay, so I just figured out when you write and post pictures he have do it so the last thing you want posted is first and vice versa, obviously this information would have been useful prior to me clicking on the post now button- sorry.

Grace is WAY too cute!

Megan in our ward made this darling blanket- yes she is an amazing seamstress. Normally I am not an animal print girl, but I think it is quite fitting for Grace, who is this pic is not looking so graceful.

How cute are these little booties; they went perfectly with her blessing dress.

Eating, sleeping, and pooping are exhausting!

Please note her dainty finger/hand position as this is quite common for our little princess.

Brandon discovered this as one of Grace's favorite positioins within the first or second week and also discovered Daddy's thumb, and only Daddy's thumb, is just as delicious and soothing as her pacifier.

This one is my favorite, I just love how "raw" it is and sweet my Gracie looks.

This is Grace's blessing dress. You can't see the whole thing in these pics but it is so pretty and girly and I just love it- Grace on the other hand was not a huge fan and I am sure she wanted to curse whoever decided tool would be excellent at "poofing" up dresses.

About a month ago a friend in ward (and great photographer), Holly, took these pictures of Grace for us! I think they are just way too cute and it has been so hard choosing which ones to frame. I must say it was a little more difficult than I thought to keep Grace happy during her first photo shoot, but it is my fault for waiting until she was 6 weeks- note for next baby get pictures done at 2 weeks when babies will sleep through anything!
So hello to the few dedicated friends and family members who have not given up on looking at our blog for updates and thank you for having faith that someday one of us will do something with this thing! To be honest, I have to admit this is the very first time I have posted anything and this is probably the most technical thing I have done when using the internet so I will proudly give myself a pat on the back. I do have to apologize however because this is my first posting I have no idea how it will turn out and what is supposed to look like, but in anycase I feel it is my duty as a mother of the cutest baby in the world to share pictures with everyone! Enjoy!

A few more pics

The talent agents have requested a few more pics on the blog so here they are...


Finally... after 9 months of waiting we have a beautiful daughter. Grace Eva Connolly was born on July 21st at 12:49 pm. She weighed 6 lb 8 oz and was 19 1/2 inches long. She is the most beautiful baby that both of us have ever seen and I am sure that you will all agree. (unless you have a baby of your own, then I am sure I baby will come in a close second) Anyway we are finally posting some pictures for all to see. There will be plenty more to come once she has her professional headshots taken. We already have talent agents nipping at our heals to get her on the tv and into movies...

To all of you who have complained about us not updating our dumb blog then maybe it is about time for you to get life and stop trying to live in ours! Natalie wants me to make sure that you all know that this is Brandon writing this lame stuff so no one gets offended.
Well everything is going great with our little family. Natalie is due in about two and a half months and I promise I will post a picture of her as soon as she lets me take a picture of her.
I just went on a really fun hike in the salome wilderness area just above Roosevelt Lake. This hike is incredible. There is a little video of the hike, my dad made the video so any cheezy parts are his fault. Anyway... check it out.

Well I have refused to create one of these things for the simple reason that I know how addictive they can be, however maybe it is about time we share our lives with the very few of you who are interested.
For those of you who we don't get to talk to very often... WE ARE HAVING A BABY!!! It has been a very long time coming and after a couple of years and some great doctors, we are finally having our first baby. Natalie is about 18 weeks along right now and the due date is currently august 4th. As for the sex of the baby...Brandon has already bought several outfits for a boy, however we have received no confirmation that it is, in fact, a boy. The day we were supposed to find out, the baby decided to curl up into a ball and hide his/her stuff. We have another ultrasound in two weeks and should find out what it is. If the baby pulls another stunt like last month, we will have about five months to think of a reasonable punishment.
