Gracie Update~ She's So Cute!!!



Gracie's nanny wrote this update.

Gracie is now ten months old. She came to our blue room on December 23rd. Gracie has a good appetite and sleeps well. She loves laughing and has been recovering well. She responds when you call her name. There are lots of things that she can do. She can hold things, pick things up, grab things, and hold her feeding bottle. Everybody loves her. She looks for things when she hears something. She will scream when she wants attention. She had several bites of rice when I fed her this afternoon. Gracie doesn't talk much, but you can always see her smiling face. She can crawl slowly and sit for a while without any help. She always lifts her head up, and looks around when she is lying on the floor. She will give you a big smile when she sees the other kids playing, and she tries her best to crawl up to them. She can use her hands to grasp toys. When she meets a stranger, she just stares at them. She likes people to talk to her, and she gives them a big smile. Her appetite has been very good. She falls asleep very quickly. She wakes up good-naturedly, and never makes any tearful scenes. She loves lying in her baby bed, and loves watching Peter in his bed, which is near to hers. She will give you a big smile when you hug her.
