"Mom, I got a boo-boo. I need a rubber band-aid."

She said as she played with the hangnail on her thumb. LOL

I Like Meatballs
Yesterday, as we were eating oreos and milk, Grace said "I like meatballs." I thought it was so funny because it came from totally out of the blue. We didn't have meatballs for dinner. We hadn't talked about meatballs. In fact I can't remember the last time we had meatballs. Where she comes up with this stuff is beyond me. But I'm glad she does. I'm always laughing because of her. She's like sunshine with a sense of humor.

I've been putting Grace to work lately. She has had four photo sessions in the last two weeks. That's what happens when Mom works for a portrait studio and has to scout the competition. She's gotten really good at posing and was even hamming it up for the last photo session as seen in the photo above and below.

And one more thing - to Grace, everyday is Mother's Day. I love it. Every once in a while she'll just blurt out "Happy Mudder's Day, Mommy". And then she takes out all the tupperware and "makes" me something for "Mudder's Day". And really, that's the way it should be. Mother's day everyday!

Don't have a heart attack...
We're back. The blog that has sorely been neglected is back in business. At least for another post. So, what's been happening? Grace has become too independent, too headstrong and way too adorable. What's new with you?

Steve and I took our first vacation away from Grace - it was not easy. Quiet, yes. Easy, no. We missed the little munchkin. So, in order to compensate, I spent my time scouting for Florida wildlife. And man did we see some. We rented a boat near Sanibel and Captiva Islands and saw pods of dolphins and drumroll, please, a MANATEE. If you are an animal lover, you'll understand the joy of seeing a Manatee in the wild. It was awesome. Yes it was.

But really, do you want to hear about our trip or Grace? Our trip? OK. We saw a bald eagle right behind the condo. Very cool. And we both held a 23-lb. alligator. It rocked! We also took an airboat ride in the everglades. What's that you say? You want to see pictures of Grace? Really? Is that all you come here for? I know how you are. (I'm kind of that way too. I can't get enough of her!)

Looking cool for school except for the drool!

And now, from Florida, Elvis has left the building.

A pristine day on Sanibel Island.

P.S. This post took me over an hour. Not because I'm slow, but because I used the PC and it's a little like molasses. And that, people, is why I don't blog much!
