Even though it’s our third time around, it never stops being fun watching the lights come on one by one in a baby’s brain as they start recognizing people, studying objects around them, discovering their voices and, best of all, learning to smile and laugh.
Grace can be exasperating at times, as any baby can, but she can also be a real joy, and she has her brothers totally in her thrall. Jason especially is a great helper, consoling Grace when she’s upset and making sure she always has whatever she might need. The other day, she had a crying fit in the car and Jason sang “Rock-A-Bye Baby” to her from the seat behind hers. More than once I’ve seen him tucking her blanket around her or cooing, “It’s okay, your big brother is here.”
Here’s few photos of the little princess holding court.
