GUESS WHAT?   This silly little girl slept through the night AND IN HER OWN CRIB! That hasn't happened since she was 9 months old!  Fingers crossed it happens again tonight!

Gracyn is sooooo smart ! She is repeating many words now! Her favorite response is Yep or Yesh! We had alot of company over this past weekend and she learned who was who quickly. When we asked where Uncle Ajay, Mimi or someone else was, she would stare at them! :-) .... One of her favorite things to do is pick up trash (like a diaper) and throw it in the trash can!..... Recently she has a new attachment to her Minnie Mouse doll. It is her new sleep and travel companion. :-)
Here she is all dressed up and ready for the OSU/MICHIGAN game. Bet you can't guess who Daddy roots for!? The next picture is of our tired little shopper!
