Dress Up

Grace is in a stage now where she loves to play dress up and put everything on her head. The picture of the tights on her head happened to be during speech therapy. Susan (speech therapist) and I got so tickled, I had to grab the camera. Though I must say, some of that probably comes from her mommy insisting that she at least try to wear headbands and hair bows :)

You Were There

Someday she might ask where she was on this historical day. And I'll tell her we watched together and we prayed together.

Grace was to cute. Once she saw/heard them playing, she ran and grabbed her flute to play along with them.

1st day of preschool

Grace had her first day of preschool yesterday. She was a bit clingy at first, but warmed up quickly and began playing. I was able to slip out and watch for a little while through the window. She did great, I had a harder time than she did :) It is only going to be for 2 mornings a week. The cardiologist and pediatrician cleared her to be around other children and resume normal activity. We are hoping that the interaction with others her age, will help with her speech delays. As a special treat afterward, we went to McDonald's for a Happy Meal and of course the toy that comes along with it. Grace was so funny, she wanted my hamburger more than she wanted her chicken nuggets. We had such a fun day and hope you enjoy sharing it with us.
