This week was so great! Having Grandma here with us was wonderful! The girls both LOVE her and Isabelle cried real tears when she left today, with a "Where'd Ganny go?" She was also gracious enough to hold down the fort while I went to the gym in the mornings AND I actually pumped some milk for Grace and went out for a few hours.
On Wednesday Isabelle had her first ever Christmas performance at school. All of Isabelle's "peeps" came from up north to see her debut. She didn't disappont! The whole class of two year olds sang jingle bells and rang thier little Christmas bells. Isabelle stood in the middle of the group and jumped straight up and down the whole time. When the audience applauded, the toddlers just stopped and starred. The lights were dim and I really don't think they realized that there were PEOPLE out there. When I came to get her off stage, she cried, "Take me back up!" "I wanna go with my kids!"
We continue with potty training and this pretty much sums up how our week has been on that front.
Grace was sweet and easy going (thank the Lord!) and she and Grandma spent the week bonding while Isabelle and Mommy worked on Christmas cookies. Grace talks and smiles as long as someone will sit and talk to her. She is such a joy. Isabelle tells me, "Make Gacie funny (laugh) Mama." She also likes to put her panties on Grace's head...but I'll save that picture for another post.
