Happy Birthday Gracie!
Daphne Grace.....my one and only Granddaughter turns 4 today.
She's just the best. She's hilarious, smart, sweet, kind, and nurturing. She's sensitive, in a good way. But she also has quite a bit of her grandmother (talking about this grandmother) in her,(just ask her mom and dad) in that...you don't want to.....piss.her.off. She has a healthy mean streak in her (ask her brother). But that's not to say she's just not busy keeping it all balanced out. She loves her brother, she adores her brother, and he adores her.
This girl has a wonderful imagination, is quick with the witty phrases (and of course doesn't realize this yet), and she is......The Princess of Puzzles...and yes, this is one of her titles. A 100 piece puzzle? For her a piece of cake.....slice O' pie.
As with her brother, I was gifted with highest honours in getting to be there for her birth, amazing. Her Grandma Sandy and I just held each other and cried, for pure joy. Gracie is our Faerie Girl.
Gracie's due date was 27 Jan, which was my maternal Grandmother's birthdate, (Deidre opted for a week early) but Gracie was named after my Grandmother, the Grace part, now she was originally going to be Heather Grace.....but Conor had other ideas on this, he's the one that came up with Daphne, when I heard this I thought....does he watch 'Frasier'? no, silly Grandma, try 'Scooby-doo'. Yep. But I think it's a lovely name, Daphne, and of course we had planned all along to call her 'Gracie'.....(I couldn't wait for the "Say Goodnight Gracie" she never, ever fell for it).
A few photos.
Of course I should've been getting ready for this post, requesting a few baby pics from her mom, but....you're getting to figure me out here, eh? I do happen to have this one.......and yes, she was a robust baby, a true bouncing baby girl.
She loves snow.
Yep, it's official....
Loves to dance.
Happy Birthday Gracie, I love you.
Oh, hey, isn't 4 the magic number for learning to knit? I've already given her knitting needles, and some yarn, and she tells me she already knows how to knit but that I can remind her sometime ......again......later.......let's put this puzzle together, eh, Grandma? All in due time.
Happy Knitting to All and continue to make good time.
