10 Things I've Learned About my Grace

1. Gracie loves mac and cheese, vanilla ice cream, mashed potatoes, goldfish, ritz crackers & scrambled eggs
2. She hates chocolate
3. She loves music
4. She loves being around other kids
5. She isn't big on hair things
6. She likes to look at herself in the mirror
7. She is incredibly stubborn...she wants to try it on her own first and don't try to force the issue on her
8. She hates having her booty wiped, or her face and hands after eating either
9. She is not a fan of Hope still (but she is trying to say her name...there is a puh sound coming out now)
10. She loves her feet and shoes and loves to put on lotion

Even when Grace scrunches up her face when she's having a tantrum, I can't help but think how cute she still is and I just want to scoop her up and give her kisses...that would be a bad thing right?

Today we visited one of my friends and her daughter. We had a nice time and we loved the banana muffins that they made. I got the "secret" recipe for the muffins that move you, if you know what I mean...that seems to be an issue for Grace now that she's eating a lot of mac and cheese. Afterwards we came home and just hung out. I think we needed a day like that. Grace only took a 30 minute nap but she went to bed early. I am hoping that she won't get up earlier. She is still waking up twice at night and I'm giving her bottles. I have them already with formula (which isn't the best but after spilling it in my half sleep I found this way was better) and I have a thermos with hot water and a glass of room temp water. She will go back to sleep this way because her tummy is full. The thermos was one of my better investments.

Tomorrow is the day we've been waiting for...meeting with the surgeon. I hope it goes well and he doesn't have another emergency. I'm not as nervous this time.
