Grace, while sitting on the toilet playing with her phone, "Want to look at my Facebook please."
This afternoon Grace spent about 2 hours playing with her rice, stove, chopping fruit, teddies and various other kitchen things. Each teddy (+/- 10 of then) was asked if they wanted some rice to eat, to which they answered "yes." She then cooked each one a cup of rice, which was salted and fed to them. When she had tired of feeding one she would ask the teddy if they had had enough to eat to which they diligently all said yes.
Grace hasn't ever really sung, but at lunch today she decided it was time to start singing happy birthday and to keep at it. In a kind of monotone, off key voice she sun, "Happy birthday to mommy, happy birthday to mommy," and just kept going. It is really exciting for us, because it is the first time she has wanted to sing and we all joined in and she kept going. It is great and we are really interested to see how long it takes before she starts to pick up a tune.
We were getting ready to go out and one of the things we needed to do was get some money. We’re busy packing things, and Grace is pottering around. Suddenly she excitedly hops through to the kitchen, holding up a pencil and says (with absolute delight, like she has found the solution to some difficult problem), “Draw money, draw money!”
Oh you clever little thing….illegal, but smart.
I love the 20 week detailed scan. Each little finger, each little toe, heart chambers, nerve connections, everything – each little part is checked. It is wonderful to see our little boy and that he is 100% healthy, a true blessing. It is also a reminder of how wonderfully made we are.
