I can't believe I now have a four year old. Grace turned four and is just as precious as she was at age one. I still pick her up and love on her and snuggle her on the sofa. She is in love with both mommy and daddy equally. You never know which one she will want each night. She always wants to know what is going on. At night she ask where we are going the next day and who is coming over. AND, she will hold you to your word. She is still shy around new or unfamiliar people. But at home she is talkie and alive. I often wonder what personality they see at school. Grace is still loving school and we couldn't be more blessed with the teachers she has this year. She has learned SO much this year and continues to be a little sponge. She surprises me with everything she retains. For example she has been taught at school what an author and illustrator are and she can tell you. Never thought a three year old class would be learning that. Gracie loves to write! We had fun this past week making her valentine cards. She wrote all her classmates names and her own name on each, and of course added stickers. Grace can identify all her letters and the sounds must of them make. She can tell you her full name, the month of her birthday and her home address. She knows the pledge to the allegiance and loves singing songs when she is in the mood. She loves to cut out objects and takes great care coloring within the lines. Grace is a wonderful big sister and I can't wait to see how she is with the baby coming this summer. She does have moments that she is irritated, annoyed, mad and we are still working on how to control emotions. She likes to be in control around her sister and friends. I can see her being a great leader one day...not sure if all her friends enjoy it right now. :) Gracie has become a great helper at home cooking, doing laundry, helping Olivia get dressed, carrying in groceries, vacuuming, etc. But as must normal kids...she HATES cleaning her own room. She is such a sweetie to me, closing my door, asking me if I am ok, giving hugs and kisses all day and tries to make me smile if I am having a bad day. I just love this little girl to death!

Grace has become such a talker. She ask tons of questions and will talk your ear off. I love it. She makes me laugh all the time. Last week she told me when she gets big she is going to to get married. So of course I asked who she was going to marry. I waited in anticipation for her answer thinking of all the sweet boys from church. As confident as she could she announced she was going to marry Jesus.

Maw Maw and Paw Paw came and got her for a birthday date. They went to Chick-fil-a for lunch and then to see a movie, Alvin and the Chipmunks 2.
And what date is complete without four pink roses from Paw Paw!
Then daddy came home from work with a real fish. Grace named her bubbles.
Then Heather and Drew came over and we all went out for Grace's birthday dinner. Per her request we went to eat "white dip", Mexican. Then came home for presents and cake.
Then on Wednesday Grace was the special girl at school. I came up after lunch and helped celebrate with cupcakes. Look how sweet she is in this first picture as everyone is singing to her.
She even got a present from Ms. Joni and Ms. Tina.
Almost the whole class.
Bailey, Grace and Hailey
