Oh my goodness gracious...

Could Grace get any more ridiculous?

Let me just fill you in on a few things that my 18 month old baby girl has picked up/learned to do in the last few days. Of course, you already know about her climbing out of her bed, but luckily we have cut that off at the knees(now... we didn't cut her off at the knees... I actually laughed at myself there! LOL!) Some of these things are adorable... and some are not so adorable! Oh well... gotta take the good with the bad, huh?

So, over the past week or so, Grace has definitely been fine tuning her tantrum skills, but this evening, it was a classic moment! So, to set the scene, we had just gotten done eating dinner and Doug decided to, instead of letting our precious little girl dictate what movie she wants to watch by us showing her a DVD case and her yelling "YEEEESSSS"(which is another something new that she has picked up, the yelling anyway), he wanted some peace and quiet, so he unplugged the TV. Well, let's just say that this did not go ever well with the princess Gracie. She made this face....

And... it was pretty much the exact way you are seeing it... this face, with absolutely no sound coming out of her mouth. Although... this face is pretty much her new tantrum face, the face she did when she realized that her TV was not working... was even worse, and funnier for me at the same time. You see... I have quite a few nieces and nephews... so I have seen this face before, but for some reason, I find it a little comical watching my girl do this. So... that was a first. :)

So... then tonight, after the TV drama, I decided that I had to go to the bathroom(don't worry... this is not heading into a TMI situation... I promise). So, as I am sitting there... I hear this little, "knock, knock, knock". So... of course I open the door, and there stood Gracie, smiling as big as you please. She would come in(yes, while I was on the potty), take something of insignifigance (like a piece of TP, a hair bow, a small mirror) take it to her daddy, I would shut the door and the entire progress would begin again. We did this about 4 times before I finally decided that I wanted a moment of peace while using the potty. Well... Grace knocked... knocked again, then finally... after a good minute of her knocking... I saw the door know slowly turn, and then the door opened and then again, she was there, laughing this time! Seriously... did she just open the bathroom door???? Apparently! Of course... I called my mom and she said... "meet your clone". Supposedly... Grace is as smart as her momma was(yes... was, I can not claim to be that smart these days!) at that age. It is funny... and she was so proud of herself. Too funny!

Well... that is it for now... my crazy brain can't really think of the other new thing that she has started doing recently... I am sure that it will come to me. I need to go through and document her accomplishments and then post them here so that I can remember years from now, but I just can't seem to get my thoughts together enough to do that right now. :)

One final thing... Thank you for all of the sweet comments about my new layout that I have up. Yes... I did make my own collage for my header, but the background is from The Cutest Blogs on the Block . I just happen to make the banner first, and then lucked into the background. :) I really wish I could find a background with daisies with those colors, but I like this one a lot, so I think I will stick with it for a little while. :)

Also... if anyone is interested(and I am going to see how many comments I get on this...) I was thinking about posting a recipe for my favorite Chicken Stuffing casserole. Would anyone be interested in this? If so... I will try to post it tomorrow.

Finally....(yeah, I know I said one final thing two things ago), don't forget, tomorrow is the last day to enter my giveaway and I will be drawing the winner tomorrow evening after 8 sometime. :) So... you still have time to blog about it, and enter if you have not done so. :)

Emma has been perfecting her tantrums too. She actually threw herself down on the floor the other night. Dan and I just laughed at her! She hasn't figured out door knobs yet, but I suddenly feel the need to buy some of those baby proof door knob covers! ;-)

Ah, tantrums. If and when I have my own brood, I certainly hope they don't take after my sister - that girl was a CHAMPION tantrum thrower!
