Grace had so much fun playing with this PlayDoh set from Dawn and Tom!

The only problem was that she loved the googly-eyes so much that she kept pulling them out of her creatures.

She's so cute picking things up off the floor.

Now Grace can stack at least seven blocks high! As she said, "That's so cool! That's so beautiful!"

She also loves putting the "regular blocks" in the "shapes blocks" box. She always says the same thing: Not in the triangle. Not in the clover. Only in the square!

Such a sweet face.

Today Suki figured out how to get her fingers in her mouth.

Enough with the photos!

Ready to play on the mat -- look at how Suki's watching Grace already.

I love the way they are paying more attention to each other.

A little pat.

It's so good to see them start to play with each other even a little bit.

Grace did a great job sharing toys with her sister.

One of the best moments was when Grace had me hang the "bird and the donkey" above Suki. As we tried to encourage Suki to reach up for them, Grace called out "Good job, Sook!" I was so proud of both of them.

Two of Suki on her own.

Polly Prissypants dancing with her animals.

Trying to get the phone from Dad. Apparently Suki is disappointed that her hand-eye coordination does not yet allow her to play with it.

A sleepy Suki eyes Dad.

Grandpa meets Suki.

So sweet.

Grandpa, Mary and Suki.

Mom and Grandpa with Suki and Grace.

Grandpa, Dad, Mom, Suki and Grace.

Grace had such a good time with this fern, being "so gentle!"

Showing Leap and Tad to Grandpa.

Dad thought the pressure of the pillows might comfort Suki.

Reading Where the Wild Things Are while on the road.

Dad and Suki at Cracker Barrel.

How sweet would this picture have been if the handle had been up? Sigh.

Sweet in the snow.

Grandma meets Suki

Suki's decided she does not like group photographs.

Grace helps Grandma make breakfast.

Opening a gift from Great-great Aunt Gloria and Great-great Uncle Chuck. Grace just adores her new Dora doll.

Grandma and two of her granddaughters.

Grace and Sibonello look at some toys while Mom and Dawn look on.

Great Aunt Donna had fun holding Suki.

Gary James enjoyed meeting his new cousin too.

Dawn, Gary James, Suki, Great Aunt Dina and Sibonello.

A fun group portrait.

Dad, Sandile and April hold Grace, Sibonello and Suki.

Dawn has the most amazing way with Suki!

Grace has Aunt Melissa smell some roses.

Suki smiles up at Uncle Jeff.

Grace made Aunt Melissa read her If You Give a Pig a Pancake over and over.

Playing with star clappers.

Playing around while trying to pose.

The good picture.

Uncle Jeff and Aunt Melissa admire Suki.

Grace had the best time with this MagnaDoodle Uncle Jeff got her!

Also fun: playing with "hats."

Melissa and Suki.

Drawing with Melissa.

Reading with Jeff.

Melissa was dancing with Grace when she asked that the dancing party include Suki. It was so cute and so nice to see her caring about her sister. Or something... maybe it was just so more people would call her "such a kind sister!"

Suki reading in bed with Dad.

I loved the way she looked on these sheets.
