Minert family of 6

Daisy in the NICU

Our little Angel

Daisy Mae Michelle Minert was born July 22nd, 2009 at about 4:50pm. She weighed 7lbs 5ozs, and was 18 3/4 inches long.

When she was born she never cried at all which is a lot different than with our other kids. She had some trouble keeping her food down and had to spend time in the NICU but she is home now and doing great.

Jeff is trading options for a living now and not spending as much time working with Minert and Associates.

Gracie and Chase start school tomorrow, Chase in kindergarten and Gracie in first grade. They are not too excited but mom definitely is.

My oldest has turned 6! I remember when Gracie was first born and everybody told me "that the time flies by and goes so fast" I remember thinking she's only 5 months old. Now she's 6 years old and in Kindergarten. It's true that they do grow up fast. Anybody who has a baby now and wishes that there baby would crawl, walk, talk, etc.... Just remember they have the rest of there lives to do those things and to enjoy every moment while there little.

I gave Gracie a birthday party at our house on February 7th at our house. It was a valentines theme. It was so much fun and Gracie and her friends had a good time. It was so cute to see her interact with her friends and classmates from school. First we played Valentine Bingo, Gracie's favorite-musical chairs, and then pin the cupid on the heart. Next I had them decorate there own cupcakes and sang happy birthday. I made them these princess drinks that consisted of Cherry 7-up, vanilla ice-cream, and whip cream with pink sprinkles. They were so yummy! The girls ended up blowing bubbles in there drinks and laughing hysterically.

Jeff and I got Gracie a new bicycle since she had totally outgrown her first bike. She went from a 16" to a 20". It's the cutest bike ever and now I want one just like it. It's a little beach cruiser with a little basket in front and is Purple and Orange. She is really enjoying riding around in the neighborhood and can't wait to go on an official bike ride when the weather gets warmer.

Thank You everybody who helped me with the party Fay, Megan, and Holli. I couldn't of pulled it off without you.

Gracie, I love you and couldn't imagine my life without you. You are my special little girl.
