A pool party!

Watching Haley do cannonballs

Watching Haley do cannonballs

Grace hasn’t been to a pool before, so she’s pretty excited about getting to go to Great Grandmother Ginny’s birthday party this afternoon at Great Uncle Owen’s pool. Don’t worry, we’ve got swim diapers (what a funny concept!), floats and lots of SPF 60 sunscreen. It’ll be a blast if bathtime is any indication!

Update, post pool party: The water was a bit cool for Grace’s tastes, being a bathtime kind of girl, so the float didn’t go over to well, as evidenced from the picture…

Not to sure about the float...

And she’s off…

A short pause in perpetual motion

A short pause in perpetual motion


Well, maybe not quite yet, but she’s practicing all over the place. She’s always going somewhere, and the first photo I took this morning was blurry because she was moving so fast in it! So Grace continues to zoom around practicing walking until she has it just right. I’m thinking that she’ll show off those walking skills for her Great Grandmother Ginny this weekend… What fun!

Crowned the queen of... Orgo?

Crowned the queen of... Orgo?

So when I was in college, many of my friends were Pre-Med. Studying for Organic Chem tests always kept folks up late into the night, past the time when any sane person would have realized they should be in bed. I recall one such late evening, being awoken to loud laughter in the common room outside of my room. I arose to tell the studiers to be quiet and found a group of people wearing what I think were carbon chains (made from their model sets) on their heads. Clearly, the Organic chemistry had gone to their brains. So what does this have to do with Grace? Well, this morning, while she was playing with Ms. Victoria, our Grace wore a little crown which was oddly similar to those carbon chains of years gone by. Is it forshadowing? Will our girl be a Chemistry major? It would sure make her Daddy proud! (And Mama would cheer from the sidelines where she’d be quietly trying to keep moles, molarity and molality straight from one another)

Of course, while Mama was recalling college, the next photo I took also had a college slant– Grace knows all about the sorority head tilt that one can find in all sorority group shots! She was practicing here… 🙂

Tummy time, Grace style

Tummy time, Grace style

Grace was happy to get to daycare this morning, and immediately made her way over to the bookshelf, to both examine books and to try to climb to the top of it. This was made a little more difficult by the fact that Mama made her wear shoes today, but that just slowed her down, it didn’t stop her in her quest to reach the top of the bookshelf. Here’s to curious little girls, getting into everything!

Grace also mentioned her excitement about Uncle John (the music teacher) coming to daycare today. It’s gonna be a good day (of course, when is it not a good day for our sweet girl?)!

Reading stories

Starting to read a story

Starting to read a story


Grace was a little slow to start this morning– she’s trying to grow teeth (we can see them just below the gums) so sleeping through the night is a little rough right now. The last 3 nights, she’s woken us with bloodcurtling shrieks from her room at 5:30, only to be comforted with some milk and snuggles and fall back asleep. She’s drooling everywhere and won’t go anywhere without something in her mouth. I hope that the teeth come soon, because she’s not quite her sunshine-y self when her mouth hurts. Of course, even hurt-y teeth don’t stop her from liking to read. This morning, she walked over (with Mama’s help) to see Ms. Victoria and immediately took the book offered and started to ‘read’.

Busy.

Grace was to busy playing this morning to look up to say goodbye. The good side of this is that we were spared a teary goodbye this morning. It’s good to see that she’s so curious and interested in how things work!

Drinking from a cup

Drinking from a cup

With help, of course… Turns out, Grace doesn’t really like the sippy cup. However, she likes the individual parts. She chews on the spout part (but won’t suck on it to get the juice out) and she likes to drink out of the cup part! She does a pretty good job drinking from a cup, as long as Mama is careful and doesn’t try to tip the cup to much. She’s growing up so fast!
