Happy Birthday to Grace, Happy Birthday to Grace, Happy Birthday to the most wonderful, beautiful girl in the world, Happy Birthday to Grace!!!!!!! :-)

Well today is a really, really exciting day!!!! Grace turns one today!!!! Today is a great day!!!! Here is the one-year update: Grace is walking a lot these days. The walking has been going on for a while, but she is really starting to master it. :-) She is talking a lot these days too. As you know she is saying stuff like, Mama, Dada, and baba, but she is also saying stuff like bye (as well as waving), please, thank you, :-) and unfortunately, no. :-( Some of the words are not completely clear, but Mom and I recognize them. :-) There are a lot more words too, I just can't think of them right now. TBI!!! ;-) Grace is eating really well. She is up to big person food. Mom and I of course chop it up into small pieces, but she is eating it. Grace loves her veggies too. That is great, but she loves her sweets just as much. Hehehe She's got the Robinson sweet tooth. Grace has cut a lot of teeth too. It has been tough on her, but she is popping them out, left and right. Our baby girl is a morning girl. She will wake up, and just like Dad, be in a great mood. That makes the mornings a lot easier. I am always willing and ready to get up with her. :-) Anyway, the first year has been a great one. It has had it's up and downs (more ups, of course), but for the most part it has been great. Grace you have been such a blessing to Mommy and I. Without you I don't where we would be. I am sure on this though. We would not be in as good a place as we are. You lighten up everyones eyes that you meet, especially Mom and mine. You continue to lighten up Mom's, Me'me's, Ma'tea's, Pepe's, Papa John's, Arianna's, Landon's, and mine. We love you so much Grace. Ocean fulls and forever. For me Grace, you are the light of my life. You have saved me. Thank you so much, baby. Mommy and I are so proud of you. Three cheers for Grace on her birthday. :-)

A visit from family :-)

Okay, so Ma'tee, Aunt Betsy, and cousin Emily came through town the other day. I was at work, but Mom and Grace got to see them and they really enjoyed the visit. Anyway, Ma'tee or one of them took some great pictures and I wanted to share them with everybody. One of the pics, and you'll know which one, cracks me up. Grace is looking at a gift (a book), and her face looks like she is thinking, "are you kidding me?" :-) I think all of you will really enjoy!!! Other than that Grace is doing well. She has her first birthday next week. YEAR ONE!!!!!! WOOHOO!!!! It is exciting. I tell you, time really flies. Yesterday she couldn't do anything, and today she is a big girl. We love you so much Grace!!! You are our angel. :-)

Grace's first weekend away from Mom and Dad

So this last weekend was an exciting one!!!! Grace spent her first night away from Mommy and I. She stayed with Me'me and Pe'pe'. Her cousins, Arianna and Landon, were also there. We took Grace down to meet Me'me' on Saturday and picked her up Sunday afternoon. Apparently she had a great time!!!!! :-) She played, laughed, and just had a lot of fun, which is great. I am really happy she enjoys spending time with her grandparents and her cousins. :-) I was a little scared at first. When we were meeting Me'me' to drop Grace off and we moved her from our car to Me'me's car, she had a face like, "what are ya'll doing? I hope you are both getting in here with me." We called to check on here after they drove off and she was fine. So that was good. Mommy wasn't doing as good though. She was probably more scared than Grace. Which I understand. We took a big step this weekend. Grace had never been away from us for a night before. Me'me' said she had a ball with everybody though. Arianna and Landon played with her and Me'me' and Pe'pe' played with her. The only part of that was tough was the night time. Grace is teething real bad right now. Her poor little gums are so swollen. They were hurting her on Saturday night and it made for a pretty restless night for everybody, but when we showed up on Sunday Grace was happy as a lark. Oh, one funny thing: Mom and I had a date night and at one point we found ourselves looking at the pictures of Grace on my camera. :-) We love our little girl. So very much, Gracie. You are our world. Anyway, needless to say it was an exciting weekend for everybody.

Just a quick update: Grace is walking so well these days. She is getting really good at it. :-) She'll be going on jogs with me before you know it :-)

For Halloween, we got the cutest little Tinkerbell costume for Grace. However, I think she is better suited for Frankenstein:
