getting to know our girl

The Lord says His thoughts of Gracen are precious (Psalm 139:17) ... our thoughts of our sweet girl are just that .. precious.  I just love having her with me where ever I go and that we spend each day doing everything together.  As I write, we're listening to "sing over me" a collection of praise lullabies.  Gracen loves music and she hears lots of it!  She loves our worship team at Grace Bible; she's always particularly active Sunday mornings:)  We play music all the time for her and sing lots to her.  As I spend time with kiddos during the day Gracen gets to play and sing all day too!  Ryan's songs to her are the best though, I'm usually laughing my head off:)  Getting to know Gracen is such a joy, we love all the little things about her that we've learned ...
*she really loves praise and worship
*she likes being prayed over
*she's a little night owl
*she loves moving around for her Dad the best
*she's a little camera shy and doesn't like to stay still for US pictures
*she loves ice cream and cold stuff
*she likes cuddling up on the right side of my tummy
*she likes laying by the pool and swimming
*she really likes tums, lol
some of the things she's gotten to do...
*read, sing, play, rock, go to the park with the little ones her mom spends the day with, who each rub and touch the belly lots:)
*vacation in the mountains
*be in TC and Jamie's wedding
*listen to her mom talk a lot
*clean and organize with her mom
*go to uncle Derek's USAF BMT graduation
*a trip to the beach
*lots of great girl time with her mom's friends who love her so much
*spend lots of time with family and listen to them adore her
Gracen has meant so many amazing family and friends...even some that live all over the country!  I know she feels so loves because Ryan and I have read it through countless letters, cards and gifts in the mail, e-mails, facebook messages, blog comments, phone calls and conversations we have with lives being deeply touched by our girl.

  1. Your thoughts on your sweet Gracen bring me to tears...especially since we are going through the exact same thing right now...and I never would have imagined it in a million years. Anyhow, I tried to send you a message on FB but not sure if you got it or not. I am praying for you and your sweet family. You are so wise to look to Him; there is truly no other place to look. Blessings on you all during this time and in the days ahead. I will be thinking of yall without a doubt.
