Graces Birthday Is Today ….and while we’re not having the “party’ until next weekend, we decided to give Grace her big present
Dad wanted to get Grace a wagon, every kid needs a red wagon. But we couldn’t find any we liked, they all seem so ‘cheap’ and most are plastic. Then mom stumbled across an industrial type (Lawn & Garden) type cart at Costco …and with some red paint, we gave Grace a very macho red wagon

These are four video clips, the last two (shopping cart) ones were taken 2 weeks after the first two clips -so you can see how fast Grace improved.
First two were July05 2010; The shopping cart July20 2010
Mom has had to cover at the hospital and Dad and Grace have used the time to take a lot of pictures ….and, Grace did a great video for us as well: This was really a great weekend, please check out the pictures linked below
We took a few days and went down to see Uncle Brian in Las Vegas. It was a wonderful trip and Grace was in heaven with the attention and love from Uncle Brian ….not to mention Vegas has what Grace loves the most:? Abundant people watching!
In spite of yet more teeth continuing to come in, Grace’s appetite and palette keep growing. Grace will often eat considerable amounts during a sitting, and in the last weeks has really broadened her palette. Some new favorites:
+Beef, as in ground beef and small chunks of assorted steak and such. +Chicken ..as in small chunks of chicken breast. +Scrambled Eggs, Grace loves these +Avocado, yep, Graces Loves Avocado. And cheese continues to be a big favorite, as well as crackers, peas, corn and yogurt.
While still no shortage of silliness, Grace is often very serious. She also is very nosy and has to know what everyone is doing …irregardless of if she knows the person and irregardless of where we are.

Tonight we all ran a few errands (yes, including Costco) ..eventually home for a nice dinner. Then, it was bath time and we broke out the new “Monster Towel” which was a Christmas gift from Kris. Note the tooth coming out of the hood in a few of the pictures. 🙂
Some good fun and Grace loves the bath and mom and dad must now keep a distance or get wet! A few good pics, be sure to check them out.
