Working to get what she wants: her skort is *not* cooperating

Working to get what she wants: her skort is *not* cooperating

Yesterday was Parent Teacher conference day at day care. Yes, they start this early; we were surprised too. When Mama & Daddy went in yesterday afternoon, we were able to find out that Grace is right on track, behaving well (or at least developmentally appropriately– she does pull hair and pick other people’s noses) and really there are no concerns. Good to know.

Lovely ladies…

Lovely ladies!

Lovely ladies!

Yesterday after work and day care, we noticed that the iris plant in the side yard was blooming. Not wanting to miss an opportunity to get a good shot, Erin & Grace raced over to take advantage, and Greg was able to capture this great shot.

Plotting…

Considering making a break for it

Considering making a break for it

This morning, Grace and AJ looked conspiratorial. She got his attention (reaching over to take his rattle did it) and then they both turned their attention to the door– route of escape. AJ’s still thinking about crawling, but according to Ms. Victoria, they can’t leave the door open any more because Grace just goes! So it is my theory that this morning they were plotting their escape as we captured this sweet picture of two little angels looking off… in reality they are making plans– look out toddler room, the infants are on the MOVE!

Grace, sporting flip-flops

Grace, sporting flip-flops

Today Grace opted to wear flip flops, because the weather in NC is getting quite warm; in fact, it’s supposed to be 90 today! She’s wondering if she’ll get to go outside, because it’s lovely out there. Mama hopes so, because she just got an e-mail that the air conditioning is broken (but is being fixed as she types) at day care. Thankfully, it’s not yet brutally hot, so with an open window, the infant room should be A-OK.

Grace is happy to see Greg B.!

Grace is happy to see Greg B.!

Grace got to play with Daddy’s good friend Greg Brusseau today as he stopped by on his way back from the beach. Grace showed off her ability to get broccoli & carrots on all surfaces within 5 feet of herself, and greatly amused both herself and Greg Brusseau with these tricks.

To ease teething pain, it has been suggested that Grace try gnawing on a frozen bagel. So, today, while she munched on her carrots and broccoli, I also let her chomp on a frozen bagel. (This was after a conversation with her day care teacher, Victoria, who also felt that this should be okay, as Grace *still* doesn’t have teeth and so, in our minds, was unlikely to bite off anything she couldn’t chew). Contrary to our expectations, however, today, Grace showed that she could very well break off bits of bagel, even sans teeth. She successfully managed to get a few ‘bites’ off (all of which, I think, I intercepted before they made it down into her belly– I really didn’t want to have to do infant CPR). So, that cute bag of tiny bagels that I’d frozen for her to munch on? I guess I’ll be enjoying bagel bites for breakfast for the next few weeks.

A budding musician!

A budding musician!

Grace took the opportunity this morning to wear her hair Pebbles style in a red bow in celebration of Color Day (the infant color is red). She also showed Mama that she really likes to make music… Perhaps it’s all the John Coltraine that Daddy likes to play for her.
