Another Favorite

Gracie used to love when we would read her book after book before bedtime and we loved it too...our nightly favorites were..."Little Blue Truck Leads the Way", "Chugga Chugga Choo Choo", "The Big Night Night Book", and "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish".

Lately, however, she hasn't wanted us to read to her; instead, she's just been ready for us to put her down to bed....

But tonight she wanted ONE book in particular. She wouldn't let Todd take it away when he laid her down. So when I went in to check her for the last time before going to bed myself...I smiled and called Todd in to see our sweet, sleeping girl with this book in her hand!

So what book is it???
I'll tell you soon!

But there may be some of you out there that don't know an important piece of information that makes this picture even sweeter!

So for those of you who haven't seen our Christmas and Best of 2009 montages - we're thrilled to announce that Gracie is going to be a...

BIG Sister!!!

We found out on Christmas morning that we're expecting Baby #2 over Labor Day Weekend!!!

So...what book could she
NOT let go of before going to sleep?

"Baby Names"

I mean cute is that!!!!
Maybe she's excited about being a big sister.

Oh Kelly, that is so exciting!!! You are right, I have not looked through your montage... sorry :( Half the time I check blogs it's at work (shhh!). Yay!!! Congrats! We'll have kiddos just the same age - too bad we aren't in the same town! That is so sweet too that Gracie fell asleep looking at the baby names book!! She'll be a great big sister!

Bev said...

Too cute...I cannot wait to find out which names Gracie likes! She is going to be an awesome "big sister!!" (Just like her mom was... and is to her brother, Jeff!)

How darn cute is that! I think you should let her name the baby....Chloe wanted to name Owen "bat boy"...wouldn't that have been so cute!!! hee hee
congrats again and again! how exciting!

That is so funny! My girls still go grab the baby name book off the shelf. You will have to ask her throughout your pregnancy what to name the baby. The creative/made up answers are the best!!! Cute pic!
