Today Gracie got to play with her Great Aunt Jenny & Great Grandma Emmy. She got to do all sorts of fun things like eat rice cereal cold (it’s sort of like baby ice cream), take a bath in the sink (very splashy) and giggle out loud with Aunt Jenny. She’s glad that she gets to stay here until tomorrow because she’s just sure that there’s even *MORE* fun in store for her tomorrow!

Here is a video of Grace giggling out loud with her Great Aunt– yay for airplane rides!

Cowgirls rule!

Today, because Grace is going to see her Great Aunt Jenny this weekend, Grace opted for her cowgirl outfit complete with boots (that she had not yet had a chance to kick off in this photo). While Mama loves the outfit for the cute little horses all over the overalls, Grace likes the sweater. She thinks that the left sleeve is particularly tasty.

Birthday presents!

Yesterday was Mama’s birthday. Gracie celebrated by giggling, grinning & wiggling to beat the band. She also sent Daddy out to get a card for her.

Gracie cleaned up at Mama’s birthday! She got lots of hairbows from her Gammie & Pee-Paw (and a pair of tights); she and Daddy gave Mama sidewalk chalk; Mama’s boss gave Gracie a Duke burp cloth and Mama’s friend from work gave her a baby angel.

Gracie thinks that Mama should have more birthdays so that she can get more gifts. She also thinks that Aunt Cathy is silly for sending a salad bowl. What does a baby want with a salad bowl? Clearly, Aunt Cathy didn’t realize that she should have sent a baby present. Well, there’s always next year. Grace is also disappointed that the toys that Cynthia brought for Mama aren’t things that she can play with yet. Grace looks forward to drawing fuzzy faces– she’s noticed Daddy’s fuzzy face before, but didn’t realize that it was magnetic!

Daddy's Little Pumpkin at daycare

Daddy's Little Pumpkin at daycare

Yesterday after day care Gracie was very fortunate to see her Godmother, Cynthia. Cynthia came over to help with Grace’s bath and have dinner. Unfortunately, due to being hungry and very stopped up (therefore having a hard time breathing) Grace ended up being less excited about her bath than usual, and when Mama pulled out the nasal aspirator to clear things up the tears started. Fortunately, our girl is pretty easy going, so once she had a little to eat and Mama stopped trying to suck her brain out through her nose, she smiled at Cynthia and headed to bed. We are all looking forward to a time when the nasal aspirator is less of an integral part of our daily lives.

Well folks, she did it. Last night Grace slept from 6:30 pm until 5:30 am (and when she woke at 5:30, she really just needed to be put upright for a minute so that she could breathe) and then she snoozed until 6:30 am. I’m very excited about this new development (but must admit that *I* woke up at 3:30 am, ready to feed her, because that’s what my body’s used to) and am almost ready to throw a ticker-tape parade! Of course, I’ve gotten excited prematurely before, so for now, I’m just quietly optimistic. Cross your fingers for tomorrow!

So I remember being that kid that tried to push the envelope, just a little bit when there was a subsitute teacher. Nothing outrageous, just a little, to see what I could get away with. I wonder if Grace will be this way.

Today when we went into daycare, Ms. Fiori wasn’t there, and Katina, who sometimes comes in to visit, but often manages the phones and does tours, etc. was holding down the fort in the infant room. Seeing one adult with five children around her all interested in her attention made me think about the days of substitute teachers when we all tried to get away with just a little more than we did usually. Ms. Kay comes in every morning at 10 am, and I’m pretty sure that Katina is looking forward to 10 AM!

Guess we’ll see how things went when we go this evening.

During play time this morning, Grace was checking herself out in her mirror and was trying to get closer to the baby in the mirror. I’m pretty sure that she doesn’t realize that it’s her reflection, but she sure is working hard at pushing up to check that baby out!
