Happy Six Months, Grace!
On Josie’s second birthday, her little sister was celebrating a big milestone as well. Grace turned six months old!
So, please forgive me while I indulge in one more child post and then we’ll be back to decor.
Our adorable Grace is an observer. In fact as I type this, she is sitting on my lap and she can’t take her eyes off of my fingers dancing across the keyboard.
Grace loves to be a part of whatever is going on. I think she is eager to grow up so that she can run right along Josie.
Josie is her superstar. She thinks she is the bees knees. When I am cooking dinner, it is the most frantic time of the day for me. I put Grace in her bouncer and at some point she inevitably begins to cry. So, I tell Josie who is either running circles around the kitchen or playing with her dolls, to go check on Grace. (Yep, that’s my system; I have my two year old take care of my six month old so I can cook). Almost guaranteed, that as Josie sets her eyes on her sister, Grace goes from crying to laughing. She only does the cry to laugh switch for her beloved sister’s attention.
Grace, at the moment, is a momma’s girl. Yes, I know this can change. But, I’ll bask in the attention while I get it. When I walk into the room and she sees me she’ll smile and give me a look that reads, “hold me please” You know I eat that move up!
She can go with the flow like no other baby ever. Seriously. She’s been putting up with it since she was born.
She is a happy go lucky, sweet baby girl. And our lives are all the richer with her in it.
She has brought a whole new element of joy, discovery and wonder to our home. Graham and I still very much can’t believe that we got surprised with the most wonderful gift of all. There isn’t a day that goes by where we don’t sneak into her room, give her a kiss while she sleeps and thank the Lord she is here.
