I want to be a supermodel...

Christmas pictures in June? That's what happens when your Mom works for the home office of Sears Portrait Studio. Grace and Tiffany had a photo shoot and the pictures turned out great. They might even show up on a postcard in your mailbox. Check back this holiday season. Here are just a few of my favorites...

This girl cracks me up...

Before I forget...

At 18 months, Grace has a ton of words she's saying right now and I don't want to forget them. So sorry there's no photos, but I promise I'll post some this weekend. Now for the words:
Book (always in twos - book book)
Thank You
Wash (for wash hands)
other one
yes (though she rarely says it)
no (says it all the time, constantly, with fervor!)
night, night
diaper (sounds like biper)
boo boo
elbow (sounds like belbow)
elmo (sounds like melamin)
plus she's great at making animal sounds - especially growling like a lion!
I'm sure there's more that I can't think of right now.

Which brings me to something else I never want to forget and can't remember if I've already posted. I'll never forget the day we got Gracie's referral photos. I drove out to my Mom and Dad's as quickly as possible. And when my Dad said these words, I knew that this was going to be something really amazing. He said "she has no idea that half a world away three people just fell in love with her". And so we just continue to fall in love with this amazing, frustrating, stubborn, beautiful, independent, wonderful, little girl.

Time Flies When You're Having Fun
It seems like Grace has really grown up in the last month. She's become quite a little ham. Always cracking us up with her silly faces. One of her favorite things to do is close her eyes really tight and scrunch up her face. It's hilarious to watch her do it. She realizes that she can't see and she thinks it's really funny. I caught the little hambone doing it just the other day...
Daddy bought her a Cinderella chair and she fits in it perfectly. She thinks it's really cool. I can finally get her to smile for pictures...

Grace had her first popsicle Memorial Day weekend. She wasn't so sure about it and after a few bites, she gave it back to me. If you haven't tried Slowmelt Popsicles, you're in for a treat. They do not drip. Genius! They have gelatin in them which makes them much slower to melt. I like 'em, but I'm not so sure that Grace does...

Grace isn't the only one growing up fast. Her cousins Ethan and Avary turned two this month. My how time flies when you're having this much fun!!
