I thought though, that maybe I should do a post dedicated to my sweet Gracelin. I haven't talked much about my kids lately. But they're growing and changing quickly, and I need to document things before I forget.
If there was one word to describe G, it would be DIVA.
She is so grown up, and already into fashion and boys - its difficult to believe she's only 4 years old. The other day I took her clothes shopping, and she told me that she wanted to buy something that made her look like a teenager. She loves make-up, cute hair, and her clothes have to always be (in her words) fashionable. And the girl knows how to accessorize. Some people (like me for example) are always the fashion victim - but she can dress well and pull it off. Yes - she is a diva extraordinaire.
She's also a Daddy's girl - especially lately. She just loves Daddy the best. The other night, I was trying to explain to her that Mommy loves her too, no matter what. Her response to me was "I don't know why Heavenly Father made me this way, but I just love Daddy more." Its all good though - I know she loves me too, and I'm glad she has a good relationship with her Dad.
She is an excellent sister, and loves Bryn so much. They play so well together, and G is so very patient with her strong-willed little sissy.
She's also my friend. I can talk with her about things, and she really understands and cares. I also have a life-long shopping buddy, and for that I'm very happy :)
G is also very smart. She loves to add and subtract, and will sit in her car seat doing her own math problems. I love it when she'll proudly exclaim that "5 plus 2 is 7." She can write her name, and actually can write all her letters now - most are actually legible too! She also draws and colors exceptionally well, and is so proud of herself for being able to stay inside the lines.
