Grace is the sweetest little girl you'll ever meet...unless you catch her in one of her "moods". When she snaps, she snaps hard! She was in the middle of the mother of all tantrums on Saturday and when put in punishment, she took off her glasses that we less than a week old, and snapped them in half.
Grace will console her siblings and make sure everything is ok if one of them is hurt or crying. She gives the best hugs and snuggles. She's very thoughtful, and remembers everything!
Grace will be 5 in November. She starts Pre-K in September and I know she's going to love it. She loves to learn. She was so excited to show her grandparents how she can write their names and what words she knows how to spell on her own. She loves to add and subtract small numbers of things. Grace loves to be read to and to do her "workbooks". She asks 10,000 questions about anything and everything, and soaks is all in.
I was stunned at watching her play the Memory game that we bought for the car ride to NC. She is just scary good at it! I downloaded a Memory app to my iPhone and again, she is just too good at it!!
Grace is my little lady. She eats very neatly, and sits with her legs crossed. She loves jewelry and is thrilled that her new earrings have (fake) diamonds! She will wear a dress any day over pants or shorts. She loves her charm bracelet and wears it all the time!
I know every parent thinks this, but in this case it's true...My Grace is the smartest little girl I know!!! ;)
