December 31, 2006

All ready to go to the library.

Racing Dad to the door.

Just outside.

Once inside, Grace was momentarily distracted by the ATM, insisting that she needed to get some cash. We pointed out that she has no card and we were able to carry on.

Looking at Ten Nine Eight, an old favorite.

And another book with "the babies."

Reaching for a book in the reading room.

Two more cute ones from the reading room.

Asking me to read her a book on the way home.

Dad and Suki.

December 30, 2006

David took these two of Suki sleeping.

Grace examines a gift from a neighbor. Note the post-nap hair :) Their five year old daughter made the ornament for us, she included a card that read, "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. You did a good job moving in." How sweet is that? The cookies are from her parents.

Grace really liked the looks of them.

Exhausted, even after her nap.

A little haggard, she's ricocheting around the room stopping occasionally to look at Suki.

Ready to put the ornament on the tree.

Just like her father, Grace can find a surface to drum on anywhere. Blessing or curse? It's all a matter of perspective :)

Suki was so fussy tonight -- the only way she was happy was hanging out with Dad.

Stopping by to say hi to her Sook.

Looking at the computer with mom. She loves her YouTube.

She sees Grover!

More time on the computer.

First experience with PlayDoh.

She would hold it but wouldn't really mash or shape it.

So David and I really had some fun with it ourselves. Here's a candy cane and snowman I made -- she was not particularly interested in mashing these, either. In fact, she kept asking for the shapes we made for the rest of the day.

Suki loves looking at her black and white books.

December 28, 2006

I wasn't paying a lot of attention when Grace told me she saw a cat. I figured it was in a book or something! But she was so persistent I had to take a look -- it was our neighborhood cat right outside our door!

Grace was so excited and absolutely charmed.

She really loves this cat, who we sometimes see on our after-dinner walks.

In too much of a hurry for any more pictures today!

Suki's got her eye on you.

Cute new outfit.

David took these two -- I love them.

Just take a look at this ridiculous position that Suki's in -- it was her own doing and she seemed so comfortable neither of us wanted to move her.

Dad and Suki in the morning light.

Playing outside and looking up at the clouds before running some errands with Mom.

Dad and Sook look on amused as Grace dances up a storm to Janet Jackson's "So Excited."

Casually perusing Hans Brinker.

She loves playing with the letters at her easel.

Suki sleeping (surprise!)

Helping Dad on the computer.

Running past the "hot steeeem!"

Grace has fun with Suki's Gymini.

Diaper change!

Two close ups.
