Can someone wipe my bum?

Lately Grace has been more and more independent. She picks some of her clothes, chooses what we play, and decides what room in the house we play in. I sure do love her.

Just a few days ago I walked onto the landing of the stairs to find this:
Grace was taking wipes out of the container to wipe her bum. One swipe per wipe. She started to laugh when I asked her what she was doing. At least she knows what is good for her, right?

Here she goes again, putting stuff on her head. 

 Stop! Paparazzi! 

She likes to climb onto the chair in her room by herself. Nobody is allowed to help her on or off, no matter how stuck she is.

 "I'm not stuck mom. I don't need your help. Look, I'm just playing!"

Every once and a while she dresses herself. Fur jacket, mom's shoes, yellow pants, and Valentine's shirt. 

 Looking foxy!

Isn't she so stinkin' cute? I love it when she grabs my hand and walks around the house with me in tow, starts jabbering, and screams and runs away when I chase her. She is so cute.

Sometimes Grace is Happy and Sometimes she is Sad

Before she turned one, Grace fell in the tub. She had to get stitches in her lip. I can't remember if I blogged about this yet... Lets just say I felt like the worst mom ever. I have learned that sometimes accidents just happen.

 Just after Grace's Birthday, Grandpa and Nana Scott brought her some goodies! This is Grace and David setting up the fun new dog! It sings songs over, and over, and over. Sometimes it is fun and sometimes I want to hide it in the garage so I don't have to hear "Do Your Ears Hang Low" one more time. 

Teeth coming in? No problem. Put an ice cube in one of these handy dandy mesh binkies. Seriously, she loves it! 

 Grace looooovevd her chocolate cake (so did I...)!
 Here's the deal: Grace has a fetish with putting things on her head. Mostly she loves this cardigan. I can't wear it around her because she will throw a fit and try to take it off me.

 Grace isn't always happy. Sometimes, when I make her come inside after we play outside for a while, she throws a fit like this. It was nap time.

 Later, when Daddy came home, she was all smiles. 

 They kicked an old milk carton around and played with sticky notes. Who wouldn't love that? 

 Here is her first experience with Mac n' Cheese. Her face doesn't look very excited, but she LOVED it.

 She found my cardigan again. Great.

 When bath time came she wasn't too excited. Also, I couldn't pry the cardigan out of her hands, so it went in with her. 

 Look at that face... I am seriously laughing out loud right now. 
 This is usually how bath time goes. She actually loves it. Notice the bag of Cheerios in the water? She loves to bring things with her into the bathtub. 

 She has the cutest cheeks!!! Oranges, hot dog (yes I feed my kid hot dogs sometimes), and yogurt are some of her favorite foods. 

As for me and David, nothing new... 
I am in school right now and so far it is going pretty well. David is still working at Academy Mortgage. 
We still love Grace.
Landin is doing well on his mission in Mongolia. I love getting emails from him. Maybe I will start posting those for everyone!
