Photo Story Friday-Grace

Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

I remember having my first ultrasound ever and finding out that we were having a girl. The technician couldn’t believe how active she was…I could. She was always moving. Grace was named almost from the hour we knew her gender.

I had such a typical pregnancy and was blissfully happy gaining about a zillion pounds. Even my delivery was easy. After she was born I wondered what all the fuss was about. Boy was I naive.

Grace came out right on time, was strong and healthy and the light of our lives. From the beginning she was sweet and happy and active and liked to be the boss. Nothing much has changed. She’s such a good girl and I love that I never have to worry about her misbehaving when she is not at home. She is a pleaser, is really into fashion, excels in school and isn’t afraid to try new things. At 8 she also thinks she’s a teen. She and I often butt heads, yet I couldn’t love her more.

    You have a beautiful girl! I had a pretty easy pregnancy too which almost makes me scared what my second one would be like.

    Interesting that you had such a good delivery. My first was *one* of the worst. She is a beauty. I feel sorry for you when the boys come knocking!

    this is my theory, you always get the easy going child first, so you keep having kids! it worked that way for me 🙂 anyway, she is beautiful and looks like such a sweet young lady!

    I’ve enjoyed getting to know your kids through PSF. You are so lucky to have such a wonderful daughter and hopefully she has set a good example to the others as the oldest. She sounds great!

    She is BEAUTIFUL. I just love that you are PSFing about all your kids!!!!

    I hated being pregnant, but I was the same way about delivery with Isaac. It was a piece of cake for me. I wish deliveries like that on all my friends. The rest of motherhood is sweet as cake, but not so easy.

    (Holy CRUMBS that was cheesy!)

    She is a beauiful girl Angie. I love the gaining zillions of pounds, but I hate trying to get them off again. You have a wonderful little family and I love hearing about them.
