Grace turned two yesterday...my how time has flown!! We went to Bear Lake on Thursday and Friday, so we were all pretty burned out to have a formal celebration, so we just quietly celebrated here together as a family.
I 'interviewed' Carson last year on his birthday and thought it was so fun that we might make it a tradition to remember the things the kids are in to that year. Grace is a little too young still (I think most of her answers would be "ya" or "ain-a git down" -I wanna get down), so I just wrote down some things on my own.
Gracie's "ies" translations:
Chickie nuggies = chicken nuggets
Scrambied eggies = scrambled eggs
Ah see duckies = I see ducks (or birds, or puppets, etc – most things are “duckies”)
Dee dee bugs = ladybugs
Bee-bee-bee = bumble bee
Buggies = bugs
Phuai wox = fireworks
Beebee ain-nain = baby einsteins
Bubbies = bubbles
Ain-a touchie – I wanna touch it
Grace loves to dance. The music comes on and her little knees start bouncing. She does a dance that looks like a Milli Vanilli dance of the 80’s and she has recently added a little twirl, which makes her laugh uncontrollably when she gets a little dizzy. Speaking of laughing, Grace “inward” laughs (think “nerdy” laugh without the snorts). She smiles often and loves to show her “pretty Gracie” (she kind of poses with a cheesy smile).
Grace can still be calmed in a heartbeat with the mere mention of “Baby Einsteins”. She runs to get her binki, blankie and georgie, pulls up a big pillow and stares at the tv. But you’d better hurry “Ein-nain, Ein-nain, Ain-a-Ein-nain” gets old fast (see interpretation above). :)
She can count to 14, she loves cottage cheese, she will NOT drink milk, she's obedient in time out and she's a great "cleaner-upper"!
I’m so glad to have such a sweet, easy-going daughter. She is so precious to me. These past two years have really flown by. I cherish every moment with my kids (yes, even when I’m frustrated up to my eyebrows) and am so blessed to have them.
