Gracie Joy

I had a special request from Mrs. Di to see Gracie Joy in a hat. You might notice that I will put Wesleigh in a hat from time to time. I tried it once on Gracie and it was a disaster! She will not leave it I save us both the frustration and put a bow in her head!

This request, however, was all the motivation I needed to have another photo shoot with her. She looks adorable! Can you feel the energy coming through the pics...or is that me remembering how I chased her around??? This girl is something else. She is so sweet, but she's a handful. She never walks...anywhere. You say, "let's go take a bath" and she runs to the tub. "Time to brush your teeth"...runs to the bathroom. You get the idea. I have so much more to write about her this chick, but this will have to do for today :)

Enjoy :)

She's beautiful!
I have one like that too, never stops moving! I put her in figure skating to burn that energy! maybe Gracie needs a sport to calm down a little.
(4 wheels skating, we don't have snow in Paraguay)

Okay this are BY FAR the best pics of Gracie Joy!! I love her personality!! The one with her tongue sticking out is SPECTACULAR!!!

She is so much like my Bre it is amazing!! This kids NEVER walks, ALWAYS talks, is my social butterfly, and willing to give anything a try!!! We cannot leave school, afterschool care or gymnastics w/out her hugging EVERYONE, talking to ALL her friends etc!! We are always the last to leave!! In the morning during school drop-offs, she gets out the car reminding me of everything she wants to do after school THEN chit-chats w/the teachers at drop off!! I did notice that gymnastics is her thing!! I had her in dance last year and although she loved it, it was just too slow pace for my fast pace girl! She needed something more challenging. Gymnastics is it! I must say, she is pretty darn good at it...suffice the PERFECT CARTWHEEL she did during reading time *according to her teacher* GASP!!!
She is super smart and LOVES school. (Getting up in them morning for it...well...that's a whole other comment)

Just the past weekend she went rollerskating to bike riding to scooting on the scooter to chasing a neighbors puppy!! No, this was not in the course of a day...this was more like in a course of an HOUR!!! I was so worn out, I said..."Bre, momma is worn out, lets go in". She promptly replied "Momma, just calm down and take 3 deep breaths"!! Ha!!!

Wonder if this kid will someday take her own advice!! :)

Enjoy your HIGH-SPIRITED GIRL!! It's exhausting, especially for this 40something mom. I love it though!!! *if only I can have a smidgen of that energy*
