Thankful for my Gracie!


Since it is still NOVEMBER--I need to keep saying why I am thankful.

I am thankful for my little daughter Gracie- She is the cutest little thing, but more than a handful. She came out of me screaming and has yet to stop! Her voice is the LOUDEST voice I have ever heard, she would seriously be a great OPERA singer, lol!

She was due to be born on Christmas Day, so she has always has a special bond with Santa! She LOVES HIM!! The doctor who delivered her was retiring from delivering babies at the end of the year she was born (2001)...and he did not want to work on Christmas, nor did I want to spend the Holiday in the hospital. So we agreed to induce her on the 14th (my half b-day)...she didn't need much inducing! I had her before my epidural was fully in effect, so that delivery was rather painful, but way easier to recover from than my first.

Gracie is a little worker bee, very independant, very strong (like a little bull), loves make up, watching Zach and Cody, eating almost anything and LOVES playing MOM to her little sisters. She has also recently mastered doing head stands so she spends a lot of time on her head. And her middle name is the same as mine :smile: ... Here are some pics of her:
