Two Years With Grace


It's so fun to see this little gal turn into a bigger person with opinions and preferences and a personality.  Grace has been singing "Happy Birthday" to herself for a week.  She then will turn to anyone in the vicinity and tell them to "sing Happy Birthday, Grace," too.  What does she want for her birthday? Chocolate cake!

Grace is an entertainer and funny like her brother.  Both of my children's goal in life is to make anyone around them laugh.  Grace's latest phrase, "Watch this!"  She will follow up with some sort of facial expression or dance or whatever that she thinks you will find hilarious.
CURLS! It's true.  Grace inherited the family curls, too.  It's hard to believe, but her hair is even curlier than Palmer's and requires quite a bit of upkeep with product and styling.

LIKES:

Singing - Little lady sings all. the. time.  Wherever we go, in the car, in her bed, she sings continually.  Her latest "trick"? Singing a song in Spanish that she learned at her babysitter's (who only speaks Spanish):

Grace also likes to boss others around with "you sing it!"

Babies - Grace likes all real babies, but most of all adores her cousin Charlie.  She is obsessed with getting my phone out to watch the (many) videos and photos stored on the device.
Compliments - If you want to feel good about yourself, just hang out with Grace.  She will often look intently at something (dress, necklace, headband, etc) and say, "Oh, that's cute, mommy!" The lady has some good sense of style already!
Life - Overall, Grace is such an independent and happy go-lucky kid.  She is happy to entertain herself or be a sidekick to her adored brother.  She gets woken most days to pick up Palmer from school and does so with a smile.  She's just as happy outside on bikes and scooters or inside reading books.
Grace gets carted around town for Palmer's activities and sometimes wants to be just like the big kids.  Grace and her gal pal snuck onto the soccer bench during last week's game and kept telling us, "We BEES (the team name)!!"
Her silliness and laughter and love is very contagious.  We love you, little two year old.
