One of Gracie's favorite books is this charmer by Charlotte Zolotow. It's about a little girl who details all the things she will let her little girl do: wear party dresses, pet any dog without asking if it's friendly, eat snow, have a sleepover whenever she wants, try on all mom's jewelry without asking first, order whatever she wants at a restaurant at least once a month, take a bath once a week, play in the ocean until she's blue, go without a coat the first warm day, etc.

It's a cutie book for sure! After reading it one night this weekend, I asked Grace if she wanted to have a little girl when she grows up. To which she replied, "I told you 'I want a PET!'" Hee, heeeeeeee....

Other heartsmiles, some from Grace; some from others~

  • When I grow up, I want to be a mommy like you
  • You're the bestest mom ever!
  • I've got a real inkling/itch (or something like that) to play some Rumbicub! My response: BRING IT ON!
  • Viel kussen für die kleine mausse
  • We saved you some meatloaf
  • We love you
  • Gracie quoting her memory verse from Sunday "Love the Lord your God with all your heart."
  • Pray for me, mama

That sounds like a book a little girl would really like. Hey did you hear my sister Annie had her baby last night? If you want to see some pics, come over to my blog. Christopher Brady is certainly a big boy and a beauty.

I'll have to have mom get that book for Annie's Abby! That Gracie seems like such a cutie-pie. Perhaps I'll get to meet her one day. God Bless, Carmen. Hope the year is treating you right!
