Here's the G-Ville report at week's beginning...
Our feaster, extraordinaire (and her sneaky pup, lower left)
1. Grab 'n go Lady
Little MG is perfecting her self-feeding and can now eat cheerios and puffs with ease. Steamed cut up carrots were less successful (she was tired) and spinach ravioli was even worse. So far it seems like we might have a "skeptical" eater (I didn't say picky!) on our hands. She's so curious about everything, but more excited to examine food than eat it. Add to her list of soft faves, YOGURT! She's been inhaling the Trader.Joe's vanilla and loving it. There's only so much you can try with two teeth. The upper ones are looking to make an appearance soon.
2. Papa's turning 36! (or was that 63? We're having trouble remembering... ;)
We celebrated Papa's grand birthday on Saturday, complete with lunch at Red Robin and birthday bash back at Mimi and Papa's. It was a fun celebration. The boys' cards were a hit as were a framed pic of Papa and M from Maine and a book about Israel. M threw in an additional gift back at their house--a dance to "Texas Road", a song he made up with a mixture of beat boxing and humming--pretty darn good! There's no doubt our #1 (and his trusty sidekick, J) love to perform. T would rather sit back and take it all in (though he did practice for the event the night before... :)
With T minus 6 days to go until his half marathan, GG is gearing up for an awesome race. Completing the challenge is his goal. The whole crew and I will be heading east with him for the race. Read: pray for GG's sleep the night before--ha! :) We have a two-room suite and are hoping we can all settle the night before. Our hotel is really close to the halfway mark of the race so the kiddos and I plan to hit the pavement at 7am and be there to cheer for Daddy and friend, Bryce! Can't wait. There's no question it will be an adventure! We're hoping for a nice getaway. Weather reports indicate 55F and sunny for race day. Sounds like *perfect* race weather to me!! GO GG!!
God bless you today in all you do.
