Gracie also lost a front tooth this month. She came to me one afternoon and asked if her tooth was ready to come out. It was pretty wiggly but not ready. I told her to keep wiggling it and it would probably be ready in a few days. She was determined though. She kept pushing it until it bled. I told her that it wasn't worth the pain, that it would come out when it was ready. A few hours later she came up and sure enough it was ready and came right out. When Gracie wants something she definitely makes it happen. My dad told her that if she can channel her determination there isn't anything that she won't be able to do.
This month Gracie is reading The Meanest Doll in the World. This is a sequel to The Doll People which she read and loved.

She loves to talk to the baby. The other day she asked me how I got pregnant. I told her that Heavenly Father sent me a baby. She said, "He's so nice!"
She is hilarious. She loves to joke around and be silly. Our neighbor gave her these pink toy glasses and she wears them every day. I love her quirky personality.
She has a special relationship with her Grandpa. He won't tell her no and she knows it. This summer we were at the fair and Mark had her up on his shoulders. We passed by a pony and she asked Mark if she could get one. Mark told her no and all of a sudden she wanted down off his shoulders. When he put her down she ran back to my dad who was walking behind us. I think it was the first and only time he had to tell her no. He couldn't get her a pony. When Grandpa is around she is either on his lap or hanging on his arm.
Quinn is so much fun and brings so much happiness into our family. I'm excited to watch her learn and grow over the next year! Happy Birthday Quinn!

This month Collin finished his first piano books. Here is a video of him playing a few of his favorite songs from them.
This month Collin is reading the first book in the 39 Clues series. He really loves it and can't wait to read the rest of the books. This is a "multi-platform" series where you can collect cards and play the game online along with reading the books. We heard that they are making it into a movie in a couple years!
This is a paper that Collin brought home. I'm not sure what they were supposed to be doing here... was it a lesson on weather? I don't have any idea although I am a little surprised that he knows what a spartan is and I'm very impressed that he aknowledges that coke is awesome. I definitely think this deserves an A+!
