"Hey guys!! I want to play with you!" Grace yells from the sofa, as Mack and Sophia are building castles on the floor. This request is now being made at least once a day along with...I want to run with you Mack...I want to help you Soph...etc.
Grace is still not very mobile. She can crawl and get into sitting (which is huge) but getting somewhere in a hurry or walking without assistance is not happening, so many times Mack and Sophia have moved on to something else or quite honestly, are not interested in waiting on her. This used to break my heart but now I look at Grace and see that she doesn't seem upset...she seems to let it all just roll off her back and she also moves onto something else. I think she is so much more resilient than her mommy.
There are also those times however, that Mack and Sophie do include her...they want to play with her and Grace is never as happy as those times. She loves her brother and sister and any kind of contact she savors. There was that morning that I went into their room and Mack had crawled into Grace's bed and is reading to her. Those are the best times...those are the times that I see how much they love each otherand those are they times I savor (I was so happy, I didn't get a photo...dangit!!)
