Time sure flies

Hello all. :)  It has been quite sometime since my last post.  I apologize, but to make up for it I have plenty of updates :)  I think I mentioned Grace was starting dance class.  Well, it has been going okay.  Grace's mom and I have discussed it and we are going to finish this season of dance, and then let Grace make the decision if she would like to continue.  I think she likes it, but she may be a little intimidated being as young as she is.  However, she does seem to be learning some and that is great!!!!  I asked and she said she would like to try soccer next.  So our tiny dancer may not be on her way, but our future soccer star may be :)   Really Grace's mom and I just want to open as many doors as possible for Grace and let her make the decision to walk through.  I will keep you all posted on how it is going. 

Let's see...  what else... so much has happened it is difficult to keep up with.  Grace had her fourth birthday on October 22nd. :) The big gift this year was... wait for it...  EARRINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!  Our little Gracie is turning into a little lady. :) She did a great job too.  Her mom and I didn't give Grace the impression that it could be painful, so Grace sat down, the person pierced her ears, and that was that.  Grace didn't make a peep.  She just grinned real big.  We were so happy for her.  She looks really good too. :) We also put a party on for her at Chick-fila.  I didn't even know they did that.  Anyway, it was actually a lot of fun!!!! Grace had a bunch of guest and they all had a ball!!!  I took plenty of pictures which I will share soon. 

Oh yeah, over Labor Day I took Grace down to our lake house in TN.  Grace had a blast!!!  Fishing off the dock with her Papaw, going for rides on the boat, playing with her cousins, eating good food, and so much more.  Grace got to meet her Daddy's brother Lee.  She warmed up to her Uncle Lee immediately.  We pulled up and she came to him with open arms. :) Of course, Uncle Lee looks almost identical to Grace's Pe'pe', so that may have had something to do with it.  Regardless though, it all worked out ;)  Oh, and Grace did such a good job on the car ride.  It is pretty long trip, especially for a three year-old (she was three when we went on the trip), but she handled it just fine and actually had a lot of fun in the car with her cousins. 

Grace's other cousins on her mom's side, and her uncle and aunt have moved to Rock Hill.  Grace has really enjoyed that.  She loves her Aunt Katy bunches and has a lot of fun with the boys.  So that has been nice. 

Anyway, I have pictures of everything I have mentioned, and I will post them soon.  Grace, life is really just flying by!!!  You are growing up so well, and learning so much.  It is really exciting!!!!!  Your mom and I are so proud of you!!!  We love you so much.  xoxoxoxoxo

the tiny dancer is on her way :-)

Hello all, Grace is doing great and having a wonderful summer!!!  Since her ear healed from her surgery she is has been pooling it up quiet a bit.  And she is doing great in the water!!!  Grace doesn't wear swimmies.  She likes her tube.  And she is so brave!!!  Jumping in the water and having a great time. 

This last weekend we did something really fun, besides all the time we spent at the pool.  Grace attended her first dance class!!!! :-) It was so much fun to watch her.  I was grinning ear to ear the entire time. :-) Grace really enjoyed it.  Afterwards we went and got her nails done.  Grace got purple, green, and pink.  They looked great!!!!  We went to the pool later and Grace got a bunch of compliments on her nails.  Of course, the water started to make the paint peel.  Sorry baby, Daddy will know better next time. ;-) But for a while Grace's nails looked great. :-)

Oh, and the night before I took the most beautiful girl in the world on a date. :-) Grace told me Friday morning she wanted to go to a restaraunt.  I figured we'd end up at a fast food place with a playground.  That evening when I picked her up and asked if she wanted to go to McDonalds Grace said, "no daddy, I want to go to a restaraunt!!!"  So we went to Olive Garden.  Grace grubbed down on some salad and breadsticks.  She also had spaghetti, but she tore that salad up. :-) We had a great time!!!! 

Needless to say, we had a full weekend of fun.  Lots of girlie stuff, but Dad loved every minute of it!!!!  Grace, you are doing great!!!  You are getting so big and learning something new everyday it seems like.  So exciting!!!!  Your Mommy and I love you so much.  We are here for you always.  Love you baby,  Daddy

Hello all, I haven't posted in a while, so I wanted to share some Grace time with you. ;) Anyway, Grace is doing well.  She had surgery on her ear a while back, but recently went for a check up and the doctor said Grace has healed up and concerning her ears, everything should be fine.  So that is wonderful news!!!! What is even better about that news is that Grace can get into the pool!!!!!  Finally!!!  She has been a real trooper about not being able to swim so far this summer.  So props to Grace!!!!  Grace didn't complain once while she couldn't swim.  Grace and I went to my parent's lake house in TN over memorial day.  Her cousins came too.  We all went out on the boat a couple time and her cousins went swimming in the lake.  Grace just sat on the boat having fun watching them swim.  You are a great girl, Grace!!!!  Love you baby doll.  But mom and I are both excited for her to be able to go swimming.  Perfect timing too, cause it has been hot lately.

Grace was allowed to run through sprinklers though.  When she had her cap on.  I'll let you all enjoy the pics on that.  She looks great in the cap, doesn't she? :-)

On mom's last post she talked about and shared some pictures of Grace making cupcakes.  I thought that was such a great idea I decided to do that with Grace also.  I took some pictures too.  You can enjoy that as well.

We recently went to Me'me' and Pe'pe's.  Grace had a ball seeing everybody.  Even her Uncle Corey. :-)

Chilaxing Day!

Grace and I had an awesome time this past Sunday.  We started the day off with baking cookies from her fairy cookie book that her Aunt Katy got her.  Grace loves to read this book at night, and we go through each recipe and I call out the ingredients and she said "Yep, we have that!", or "We need to buy that!".  She reminds me so much of her Aunt Katy.  I mean, who else likes to leisurely read cookbooks???  Okay, probably shouldn't have asked that question.....  Here is a picture of the book:

And here are the fairy cupcakes that Grace made!  She measured all the ingredients, stirred everything up, put them in the baking cups.  She also made the icing from scratch as well, and put the icing and sprinkles on the cupcakes all by herself!  Here is a picture of the result:

We have already eaten the cupcakes and the were delectable!

We also went to a few stores to look for a swim cap so that Grace can run through the sprinklers at daycare.  The reason that she needs the swim cap is because she is still healing from her ear surgery.  We finally found a pretty pink cap and she wanted to put it on right away:

Isn't she the cutest child ever??? YES!!!!

Ohhh, and you say you like her outfit??? Well, her very talented and beautiful mother made that for her!  I made her pose for a few:

Basically, the whole day we just spent hanging out just the two of us and it was the best day I have had in a long time.  I cannot wait to spend many, many more days like this one!

Here are a few more pictures of our day:

Grace is my heart

Hello all, hope everyone is well.  Just a real quick story today.  Last night Grace and I were reading stories and getting ready to go to sleep.  As I was about to turn the light off Grace said to me, "Dad, I love you so much, you are the best dad in the world."  Oh, my heart dropped.  I love that girl more than anything in this world!!  Grace, you are the light of my life.  Without you I am lost.  No matter what happens I will be here for you. I know your mother feels the same way.  We are both on the Grace Anne-Marie Robinson Team!!!!  And always will be!!!!  We have got your back, sweetheart.  You are growing and learning so much, and getting so big.  I have said it before, but it is so exciting.  I'm so happy to be your daddy, and be a part of your life.  Thank you.  I also thank God for you.  He blessed your mother and I with you.  We are more than we ever would have been because of you.  Love you, Grace.

Gracie Girl

Hello all, it has been a while. Glad to be back writing more about the amazing Grace!!!!! :-) All is wonderful on the Grace front!!! She is growing and learning so much. Every day there is something new.

This past weekend Grace and I went and got her nails done. :-) She chose to have them painted pink. She is all girl. I think I may be in trouble. :-) No, but I am going to have my hands full. Getting the nails done was a lot of fun. Grace was a very good girl while they were being painted and drying. After that we went over to a playground in the local mall. Grace saw some girls she goes to daycare with, and they all had a lot of fun. When we were leaving we saw one of those photo booths, so Grace and I took some pics. I'll try to get the photos uploaded cause they are really cute. :-) After the mall we went home, had lunch, and played. Grace had a full day and it was a lot of fun.

A few weeks ago I took Grace to a friend’s birthday party. I really enjoyed being there. When I drop Grace off at daycare or pick her up I don't really get to see her interact with her friends. At the party I got to sit back and observe her and her friends. It was really cute. At one point they were playing hide and seek. Grace was seeking. She counted and then went searching for her friends. Oh yeah, there were about 4 children hiding (all in the same place) and they weren’t really hidden at all. I found that really amusing. So Grace started searching and saw them and they saw her. At this point they all started running around and laughing hysterically. When I saw this I almost started laughing hysterically. :) It was really cute. The party also had pony rides. Grace just loved that. I may have to buy a pony soon.

This morning was a big morning. Grace went to the dentist recently and found out she had a cavity. :( So this morning she got it filled. Grace was such a good patient. She listened to the dentist and didn’t move around a bunch. I think she may have been a little scared, but she did so good. I was a little worried beforehand, because I thought they were going to give Grace laughing gas to calm her, and I wasn’t sure how she would react. But Grace didn’t need anything. She sat back and let the dentist do her work.

Grace, you are doing so well, and your Mom and I are so happy. You bless our lives everyday. We will always be here for you. You can count on that. Good, bad, happy or sad, your Mom and I will always love you. Always remember that.
