Where's Gracie???

She's been keeping her brother Bryson company at the RMH in Philadelphia while he gets medical treatment there!
She calls home and checks in with papa every now and again! She actually misses home terribly and sometimes gets emotional talking to papa. It is very sweet. She tells everyone we are going home on Saturday. Oh how I wish!!!
She's been busy making new BFF's!
She has even traveled to our Nation's Capital!
 Taking her own pictures of the Capital
Gracie continues to amaze me and everyone who meets her. She is often putting 5-6 words together, mostly in English but adds in her Chinese when she needs to really get the point across!!!

All the doctors and nurses at Shriners are smitten with her and know her by name. It is pretty cute!

She rubs Bryson's head and tummy telling him "It's okay Bryson!" It is the sweetest thing EVER!

Grace and Gracie

Another fun Gracism is when we say Grace!

I often will kick tap the kid saying grace under the table and softly say "mama mama" teasing that they should say "thank you for my mama!" All the kids know it is my little joke with them. So now when others are saying grace, Gracie will quietly say, "Gracie, Gracie!" So whoever is saying grace says,"Thank you for Gracie!"  It is so stinkin' cute!!

Sorry no photos, but this post is worth more than any photo could capture!

This morning as I was curling Gracie's hair I told her she was mommy's beautiful girl.

Are you ready for her reply???????

She looks up at me, SMILES like only she can and at the same time tenderly rubbed my arm and says in perfect ENGLISH,

"No, mama YOU beautiful!!!"
