Annie Glenn's first visit to the Beach!

On July 11th at 6am we left Newnan on the way to the beach for Annie Glenn's first beach trip. You should have seen the bed of Josh's truck. Not even an ant could have hitched a ride with us. We had more than we needed for Annie Glenn's first beach trip! Annie Glenn was perfect in the car, sleeping for almost the first four hours! We arrived at the beach by lunchtime and hit the sand and pool soon after. Annie Glenn had everything she needed for the beach and pool thanks to Aunt Ashley and her floats, pools, and toys! We spend 10 days in paradise and enjoyed every minute of the time that we were there with our beach family.

Annie Glenn loved the pool and by the end of our trip liked the ocean, as long as she was safe in our arms. She loved our morning and late afternoon walks on the beach, but she especially liked all of the people who were constantly there to play with her! We took over 1,000 pictures of our family and friends and ate like kings and queens. We truly had an incredible trip! Josh and I just loved being able to introduce Annie Glenn to friends who are so important to our life, if it weren't for these special friends we would have never met!

As we have returned back to the "real" world we have realized how quickly the Summer has passed. Next week will be a huge week in the Winstead household as Annie Glenn will begin going to "school" every day with Miss Stacey while Josh and I return to work. We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful place to take Annie Glenn each day and know that she will be loved by Miss Stacey and will taken care of....however I am not looking forward to not spending all day with Miss AG! Also next week Annie Glenn will turn 6 months old! We can't believe it! She has gotten so big and we are loving all of her new "tricks"! She still has no teeth, but not for a lack of chewing and will be crawling before long. Right now our favorite thing is that she will reach for Josh and I when she wants to be held. It just melts your heart! She continues to be the most precious blessing and we are humbled by God's trust in us daily.

Please pray for our family as school starts as it will be a difficult transition for us all. We hope that you enjoy all of the pictures and we will post again soon!

New Adventures with Annie Glenn

We have had so many new adventures over the past few weeks that it has been hard to keep up with "blogging". Annie Glenn has gone on her first boat ride, celebrated her first Daddy's Day, flown on an airplane, visited the zoo, celebrated the 4th of July, and has turned five months old! She is continuing to be full of life, personality, and energy. We also have visited Dr. Jackson and Annie Glenn continues to be "practically perfect in every way". She weighed 17 lbs. 10 oz. and was 27 inches long last week. So...she is still off the charts in weight and is in the 97% for height. Annie Glenn is starting to push up and kick her legs to start crawling, is rolling over both ways (from stomach to back and from back to stomach), and loves all of the veggies that we have fed her. Annie Glenn truly is the most precious blessing to our family and we are so blessed to have such a bright eyed and loving little angel.
We will be leaving on Saturday for another adventure as we g0 on our annual July beach trip. Annie Glenn has not had the chance to meet her beach family and we can't wait for them to spend time with her.
We will post beach pictures soon...
