Waiting

First off, a little back story… Grae absolutely adored being around Portia’s baby sister at this morning’s play date.  In fact, she told me that in addition to Jessica’s delicious cheese scones, holding the baby was the best part of the whole morning. (To say that someone is anxious to be a big sister one day would be a huge understatement.) 

So today, after her nap while we were enjoying some quiet time at home, she turned to me and very, very seriously said…

Mama, I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting for my baby sister, but I just can never find her.

Her face was a mixture of genuine concern, confusion, and disappointment, and it made my heart hurt just a little.  Is it normal to feel most pressured to have number two by your {still 2 year old} firstborn?

Thursday

After tucking Miss G into bed tonight, she begins calling for us.  Brad goes in to see what she wants…

Gracen: Papa, I want Mama.

Papa: But Papa’s here.

Gracen: I like Papa and I like Mama.  Sometimes I want Papa and sometimes I want Mama.

Papa: And right now you want Mama?

Gracen: Yes.

Papa: (knowing this will continue until I come) Okay.

Gracen: I want you on Thursday.

Just Zero?

Early this morning while cuddling in bed, Miss G was browsing one of my yearbooks from while I was teaching in Kuwait.  She found my class’ page topped with my photo and asked…

Gracen: You are in your classroom here, Mama?

Mama:  Yup.

Gracen:  Where is Papa?

Mama: He’s in his classroom on the other side of campus.

Gracen:  So we had a little babysitter for Grae, ya?

Mama:  Well no, Love.  You weren’t born yet.

Gracen: So actually I was  just zero???

Knee’s Skeletons

While down at the beach today, G begins to attempt crawling across the busy path…

Mama:  Grae, let’s not crawl across the path please.  Let’s walk.  

Grae: What ’cause?

Mama: Well, because there are a lot of people walking and biking past and the cement is hard and rough.  You’d probably make holes in the knees of your leggings.

Gracen: And then I no have knees anymore? I just have my knee’s skeletons?

From the Mouth of Grae

Photo copy 2

Grae’s ability to communicate, express herself, and carry on thoughtful conversations is absolutely exploding right now. Not a day goes by where I’m not flabbergasted by the amusing things she comes up with and the connections she’s able to make.  Here are a few quotes from today…

 

Mama, a mouse has a very, very small skeleton because it’s sooooo tiny, and a giraffe has a really, really GIANT skeleton because he’s soooooo big.  What has a medium skeleton?

 ……………………………….

I love Grandma Sue because her feet are nice.  Her toes are painted and I like them.

  ……………………………….

Fruits have seeds.  Vegetables have no seeds.  Chicken doesn’t have seeds, but it’s NOT a vegetable…  So what it is then?!

  ……………………………….

(After I told her that I love her) I love you fooooorrrrever, Mama.  Because I’m your baby.

Taylor Swift Hair

Gracen: (lifting up my loosely braided ponytail and turning her head sideways to inspect it)  Mama, you’re just like Taylor Swift.  Taylor Swift does her hair like this.

Always & Forever

While getting into the car after a particularly trying visit to the craft store…

Gracen: I’m happy!  I’m a good girl.

Mama: Yes, baby. You’re a good girl.

Gracen: But Mama’s still feeling a little bit up-set though…

Mama: (nods)

Gracen: I LOVE YOUUUU!

Mama: I love you too, Grae.

Gracen:  Mama still loves Grae Grae even when she’s up-set.

Yes I do, sweet girl.  Always and forever.
