Our Little Book Worm!
We had a fairly long wait at the doctor's office yesterday before my ultrasound. There were many first time expectant mothers that were also waiting for their appointments. It was nice to see their frowns turn to big smiles as they watched our Gracie girl in action. Grace always seems to bring a smile to those around her! After observing Grace for awhile, one woman turned to us and asked, "How old is your daughter? She is very smart and so verbal. Does she watch those Baby Einstein DVD's?" Bob & I just smiled and said, "no." We explained how much Grace loves books and how much she has learned from being read to every day since she was a baby. We didn't tell her that Grace has never watched television nor seen a DVD or movie. We were such proud parents as Grace ran around counting the number of green chairs, socialized politely with another little girl, and excitedly described many of the pictures in the children's magazines while sounding out words such as "c-a-t, cat" and "d, d, dog." The magic of books!
