Last night I was giving Grace a bath. She really enjoys bath time. Well I got done cleaning her and she was playing in the tub with this cup I use to rinse her hair after washing it. I decided I would have some fun with her and let her poor a cup of water over Daddy's head. :-) Mommy and I have done this before and Grace really got a kick out of it. So she poors a couple of cups of water over my head and then she smacks me in the noggin with the cup. Okay, that is not the funny part. :-) I stood up and said "no" and "not to do that." I wasn't acting mean or mad either. I guess I actually looked a little sad or hurt that Grace would do that. At least I think that is how Grace felt. So she proceeded to fill up the cup and poor it over her head to make me feel better. SO SWEET!!!! Then she looked up at me and smiled as to say, "don't worry Dad, I did it too and I'm okay." One thing that is real sweet about this is the fact Grace hates having water dumped over her head. And to make me feel better she did it to herself. I could almost cry right now as I tell this story. :-) It made my night. Grace, you are the light of my life. Mommy and I love you more than anything. You keep being that sweet and you are going to turn out just fine. We love you baby. Everyone else, I hope you enjoyed the story. I'll be updating again soon. Thanks for reading.

We had a great time seeing everyone and we ate some great food (thank you Me'me' and Pe'pe'). Grace's cousins, Arianna and Landon, were there. Grace really enjoys seeing them, and they are so sweet to her. It is really something to see. Arianna acts like Grace's mommy, and Landon puts his arm around her and kisses and hugs her a bunch. Me'me' and Pe'pe' really enjoyed seeing Grace. It had been about a month, so they were both ready for some Grace time. Me'me' gave Grace a bath (and did a bunch of other stuff with Grace) and got see how long her hair is. It has really grown and you see it best when it is wet. All Pe'pe' did was give Grace a hard time :-)jk, but Grace knows how to handle Pe'pe'. And really, Pe'pe' is very sweet to her.
I think the best part of the visit, as far as Grace is concerned was Saturday nights dinner. Pe'pe' went out and got me a steak: a huge ribeye. I shared it with Grace and she loved it as well as the mashed potatoes , the peas, and the corn that she ate. However, the food must have had a stimulant in it, cause after dinner Grace ran circles around us. And I mean that literally. :-) There is a wall seperating the living room and the kitchen that is open on both ends, and Grace ran circles around it laughing the entire time. For at least 30 minutes. It started out with her and Landon, but Grace kept the pace up longer than him. Which is hard to believe cause that boy has some energy too. :-) So needless to say, after that Grace was wiped. Of course, I didn't mind cause that made for a good nights sleep. :-)
Unfortunately, Dad (me) is a goofball and forgot his camera. So I don't have pics to post, but I will try to get some taken soon and post those.
Anyway, it was great weekend for everyone, and Grace, you were a very good girl and we all love you so much!!! Everyone else, thanks for reading. I'll be back soon, hopefully with some new photos. :-)

Grace doing the "Robot" :-)
Hello all, Grace hopes everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day!!! She wanted Mommy and I to post some new photos for everyone, so they are above.
Anyway, Grace is doing well. As I was telling you in my last post she is becoming very independent. So independent that sometimes she is telling us when she needs to use the potty. She does this by pulling her diaper down. :-) Needless to say, but Mom and I have to be pretty quick when Grace shows up by our side with no diaper on. :-) It is a start though, so Mom and I couldn't be happier. I bet by the time Grace turns two she will be potty trained. Give or take a month or two. :-)
Other than that, all is well with Grace. Her hair is getting longer and is so cute. Grace is just adorable. :-) We may have to get a hair cut soon though. So we will definitely post some photos of the hair cut. :-)
Oh yeah, yesterday I made my famous grill cheeses and I made one for Grace. She loved it. I cut it into four little triangles and Grace had such a great time picking them up and eating them. :-) I thought it was really cute.
I need to get back to work, but I will be back soon with another update and hopefully some new pictures. We love you Grace. Thanks for reading everybody.
