Gracie recap: September and October

Did you know that I got a new baby brother? He came in September.

He is so cute. Sometimes, when he’s fussing and Mommy is busy, I will softly sing to him to calm him down. He likes that.

I am excited that I have another brother, but I am a little sad that I didn’t get a baby sister. The day Mommy came home from the hospital with Stephen, I prayed and asked God to give me baby sister. I’m really hoping that He will. I love to talk and sometimes, my brothers just don’t talk much. It would be nice to have someone else who talks a lot like me.

Mommy still looked pregnant when she came home from the hospital. She told me that her body was healing, but I told her she probably didn’t get all the babies out, since she still looked pregnant. I lovingly nicknamed her, “Big Mama.” For some reason, she didn’t seem to like that.

I get to sit in the back of the car, now that Stephen is here. I can even buckle myself in by myself. I guess that’s a good thing for Mommy, since she has three other kids to buckle in. Sometimes, I sit in the back and read books while we are driving somewhere. It is nice to have some peace and quiet.

We go to the park a lot. Sometimes, we have play dates         and play with friends and other times, we just go as a family. I am really fast and like to run to the park. After watching the Olympics in August, I have developed a new love of running. Mommy has started running again, and sometimes, we will run together.

I am ready to read. There are times that Mommy and Daddy are talking and one of them will s-p-e-l-l something to the other and it frustrates me to no end! I need to learn to read! I really like doing lessons with Mommy. We do crafts, reading, activities and coloring sheets. I really like practicing my letters. You should see me write the letter ‘A’.

In October, we went to a fall festival. I got to dress up as a bumblebee. We played lot of games and got a lot of candy. I’m not sure where all that candy went, Mommy let me have a few pieces, but since then, it seems to have disappeared.

On Halloween night, Mommy and I stayed up and passed out candy. I told mommy that I was really proud of some of the kids since they said “Thank you.” It seemed that the younger kids said “Thank you.” but the older kids just took the candy without saying anything. That was weird. Someone dressed up as a wolf came to the door. It was really scary and Mommy decided that we were done for the night after that.

I’m excited about November. Not only is it when we celebrate Thanksgiving, but it is also Benjamin’s birthday! And soon, it will be Christmas!
