Monkeying Around!

There's just one word to describe Grace these days: ON-THE-GO! Okay, three words :) From the time she wakes up until it's time for bed, it's go, go, go. Keeping up with her is definitely a workout.

One of her favorite games is hide and seek. She goes "1-2-3-4-5 GO! Here I come!!" whether it's her time to hide or to go seek :) So cute!

Hmmm...wonder where I should hide??? Here, I found a spot! Ha, ha, ha, you found me!

Favorite Phrases: "I do it. I do it.", "Grace do it.", "I love you.", "Good job.", "Uh-oh, what happened?", "Fell and went boom. Got ouchie. Mama kiss it."
Family: when asked what mama's name is says "Jessica", daddy's name says "Lance", and what her full name is says first and last name, then cheers for herself :)

Funny #1: told her first lie last week. Noonie, Grace, and I were in the car and Grace dropped something she was playing with. When I looked back to see what it was, she looked at me and said "Noonie dropped it." =O
Funny #2: picture it - while waiting for mama to fix her breakfast / mama goes, "Grace, today I have a treat for you, something you really like." / Grace: "boys?" (uh-oh, we're in trouble!!!)
Toddlerhood: first full-blown toddler tantrum the other day / cried, screamed, kicked, threw herself on the ground, etc. for like five straight minutes - all over a food choice. FUN, FUN, FUN.

And last, but not least, HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY, EMERSON!!!! HAPPY 5TH BIRTHDAY, JOSE ANTONIO!!!! Hope you both had wonderful birthdays! Aunt Jessica loves you!! XOXO
