The Breakfast Club, pre-school style (Kylan, AJ & Grace)

The Breakfast Club, pre-school style (Kylan, AJ & Grace)

This morning, Grace arrived at school ready for her morning snack!  She sat down with her friends, but when the Rice Krispies didn’t appear quickly enough (AJ was getting his hands washed) Grace hopped right up to see if Ms. Brandy needed some help!

Do you need my help?

Grace is very excited that today she will get to see her godmother Cynthia.  That will mean visiting with doggies and kitties lots of snuggles, of course.  Grace always likes seeing Godmother Cynthia (also known as Aunt Bird) because she can tell her all of her baby secrets and they laugh about her baby jokes.  Yay for fun with Godmother Cynthia!

Petting Roo!

Dear Gammy,

(Daddy is typing this on my behalf.)  Thank you so much for the books.  The Velveteen Rabbit and Goodnight Moon are wonderful stories.  Mama and Daddy have read them a few times — well, a lot — and I enjoy them every time I hear them.  Thank you also for the red Tupperware.  Daddy lets me pound on it every morning.  Makes nice thumping sounds while Daddy is messing with my britches.   The clothes and bathing suits you sent fit really well this summer.  Glad that it covered my behind on the beach, in Grandpa’s boat, and at Uncle Owen’s swimming pool.  I don’t think sunburn or sand would feel good on my bottom.  The hair bows are BEAUTIFUL.  Not only do they clip well in my hair, but they also taste pretty good too.  I usually chew on them a couple of times a day.  The blue ones don’t taste like blueberries though.  I’ll keep checking.  The Baby Tenda is okay.  I’d really like to throw more food on the floor,  but for some reason, Mama and Daddy can’t appreciate that.  They like having a place where I can sit to sit and eat and paint and read and spit Cheerios on the floor from a distance.  You should see all the Cheerios I’ve spit so far!

Daddy says that we’ll visit you soon, and I look forward to seeing you on the computer.  I like to go naked at home (after I go to the potty — one way or another).  Did you know that?  Daddy said that he’d lift me up to the camera, so you can see my House Uniform!  🙂

I love you!

PS/ Daddy says that you and PeePaw are going to buy me a TRICYCLE.  Daddy says that I’m not quite ready for that, but after I start walking, we’ll make that our next project.

Happy Birthday Gammie!

Today is Gracie’s Gammie’s birthday.  When Mama asked Gracie what we should get Gammie for her birthday, Gracie suggested a duck.  With a little bit of searching, we were able to find that Heifer International was a great way to send Gammie a duck without any of the mess or clean up!  So Gammie can appreciate Gracie’s thoughtfulness, a family in Asia can appreciate the flock of ducks and Mama & Daddy can be proud of their little humanitarian.  Yay for Gammie’s birthday, and yay for ducks!

My Daddy is the GREATEST!

My Daddy is the GREATEST!

Grace and her Daddy have a very special bond, forged through lots of tickling, raspberries and hanging upside down.  She also loves to crawl into Daddy’s home office and ask to sit in his lap.  She’s such a snuggle bug that Mama couldn’t resist snapping a picture of these two grinning at the pleasure of each other’s company.

Snuggling Mama

One last cuddle before school starts

One last cuddle before school starts

Grace has taken to needing a lot of cuddling before we leave her in the classroom– she clings to knees and fusses and takes her sweet time becoming interested in whatever is going on in her classroom.  Today Daddy took the opportunity to catch a quick shot of Mama and Grace cuddling.  If you zoom in, you can see her tooth on the bottom!

Official Notice

Today we got the official letter regarding Grace’s transition to toddlers (and the tuition bill, which is a little less 🙂 as well!).  They’ve planned a week of building days in toddlers (she already visits at least once a week, it seems) and by September 14th, she’ll be spending the entire day in the toddler room!  She’s getting so big!
