Eat honey, my son, for it is good; honey from the comb is sweet to your taste. Know also that wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off Proverbs 24:13-14

God used this scripture to encourage me this morning. I hope it encourages you, too!

~*~*~ Grace updates ~*~*
Grace is 15 months now and in the 90th percentile for heigth, weight and head size(hmmm why do all my kids have big heads? Is it me? Don't tell me if it is lol)
and according to her pediatrician she is ' a happy, social one.' Which she usually is! Grace loves to do whatever her brothers are doing, and this one (so far at least)is a tomboy out and out! She slaps harder than her brothers do!! Let me qualify that statement, lol:) Her brothers and play a 'game' where one of them is the 'slapee' and one of them is the little dude that 'loves to slap' from the movie Master of Disguise( one of our family faves.)So, you can imagine where that goes! Grace will get right in on the action and throw herself over one of the boys,or come over and 'slap' one of them quite hard!! Yes we tell her not to be so rough don't worry about that, but it is hilarious to see her leveling these 12 and 5 year old boys at times.

She loves spaghetti because she can suck in the long noodles and she is hard to get to eat much meat. All manners of fruit and vegetable she will go for, but give her a piece of chicken or beef and it will hit the floor. Fish, she likes. Grace loves eating the lemons on our glasses at resteraunts, as I hear many other kidlets do, and we can tell she's done with eating when she starts putting food on the top of her head :)

She is really starting to look like a little girl now, not so much just a Josh carbon-copy anymore. She laughs heartily and loves books. She does not seem to prefer dresses over pants or shorts, and tugs at them all day whenever I put them on her. She always smiles when I put her in her zip-up footsie sleeping suits at night :) She loves to be bounced and to jump up and down, roll around on the floor with her brothers and chase Josh around. So, she's very physical! But, to go to sleep,she loves to have her hair and cheeks stroked. Her most used words are Hi, Bye, Cat, What's that?, Oh,no!,Mom-Mom-Mom-Mom ( that's exactly how she says it :),
Dad, 'Tyler, what?'(not sure why she says that one so much)and ball-ball! I must admit, the two she says the most are "What's that?" and "Mom-mom-mom-mom" ;)

Updates for Josh and Ty will have to be another post tomorrow because the misses has decided to wake up just now, and I gotta go sit with her! Have a great night :)

Thanks for the update on Gracie!
I am glad that she is so big and healthy! My kids eat the lemons too! Which is good, because I dislike lemon in my soda. Elijah doesn't talk much at all yet, he does say "da" and understands alot. Mostly he grunts and makes little noises, his favorite is Oughhhhhhhh! He says this about neat, new things, or food he wants off my plate. HE does do some sign language. I worried alot about this with Benny, but once he hit the two year mark he did start to talk, and now he is "normal". I worry less and less about this stuff each kid I have.
Hope to see you this weekend!
