First Chore


It amazes me everyday how much Gracie understands.  She uses a little sign language -  claps her hands for "more" and "waves" for just about everything else - hello, goodbye, milk, and bird but is definitely making the effort to communicate using signs...I just need to be better about using signs more often and working with her to sign back.  

While I know it will take a few more months for her to really start using her own words, she truly understands almost everything we tell her, show her, or ask her do.  She is a very good listener and is very helpful.  She's been giving Tucker his breakfast and dinner for a few weeks now.  I think it is the cutest thing!

What a great video. I would like to see a video of you doing the video by yourself. Can't wait to get my own high five from her.

How CUUUUTE is Gracie? I loved every second of watching her feed Tucker and dance! Thanks for posting. You are such a good mom, Kelly! Gabe watched and said the same...that you seem very patient and loving.
