Today, Grace got up early.  “Got up” no longer means wake up and possibly yell.  “Got up” now means wake up, and get out of bed, and walk out of her room, through the hallway, and into our bedroom.  Complete with announcement and a nudge for Erin to pay attention.   — This means that Mommy and Daddy woke up early.  Actually, it was Erin who kindly accompanied her back to her room.

About 25 minutes later, I heard soft footsteps.   “Daddy…?”  “Daddy…?”  “TeeTahDee!”

— Huh?

Since Grace can’t quite climb into our bed yet, I suddenly felt a tug at my hand.  “Heehw Daddy.”  I rolled over and she quickly handed me the eyes and left arm of Mr. Potato Head.  Shortly thereafter came the whole head.  Although I didn’t consider Mr. Potato Head to be a critical issue this morning, clearly there was somebody who did.

Doggies at PetSmart

Getting kisses

On Saturday mornings, Grace will wake up and ask about the doggies (she sometimes does this on other mornings too) and just LOVES to get kisses from all of the doggies that she can reach.  She doesn’t always want to pet them, but she sure loves having her hands kissed through the cages!

Happy about horses!

Grace loves horses, and was excited to wear this wonderful outfit on her first day of trying to wear big girl panties all day.  We took lots of extra clothes, so we’ll see how it goes, but Ms. Grace has gotten really good at using the potty and keeping her pull-ups dry.

A post from the inside

Hi folks,

Grace gets a lot of press on the blog, and I get that, really I do.  But soon enough she’s going to have to share her spotlight.  And soon enough, I’ll have to show her who’s boss.  I tried this morning.  She was patting Mama’s belly, and at first, they were nice gentle pats and then I guess that she got excited and starting patting harder, and I didn’t like it, so I gave Mama’s belly a mighty kick to remind her that someone’s living there right now, and she needs to be nice when she knocks on my door.  I’m sure that we’ll have lots of fun once I’m on the outside– Mama tells me that Grace loves to ‘rock and rock’ her babies and feed them and wrap them in blankets– it’ll be nice to have a big sister to take care of me. 

Well folks, I’m getting tired, so I’ll sign off here…  Love from the Robinsons’ favorite “?”

It’s a good thing that Grace’s toddler bed is pushed up against the wall, it avoids Grace getting up on the wrong side of the bed most mornings.  This morning, however, somehow she managed it.  She didn’t want to wear clothes, get into the car or go to daycare.  Once there, she showed us that she was NOT HAPPY about being there, thank you very much.

Fish– the only good thing about the doctor’s office

Grace is not a fan of the doctor’s office, but because they have fish in the lobby, she tolerates it.  Today she had to get her 2 year shots and we found out that she is still in the 90% for height, weight and head circumfrence.  At least she’s proportional…
