Happy Valentines

We had a wonderful Valentines weekend. Gracie had a little valentines party Friday and loved all the candy, cookies, and hearts. Last night we waited for Graice to go to bed so we could have a nice relaxing dinner together. Ben grilled steaks and we enjoyed our peaceful time together.

I've been out of commission for a while with blogging because I accidentally dropped my laptop on the tile floor. I think my big belly got in the way. So, now I only have Ben's computer to use every now and then when he's playing basketball. Here is an update of the past couple of weeks in the Martino home:

Big Girl Bed: It only took Gracie a week to figure out she could get out of bed herself. She is very good though when she gets up and usually just plays in her room until we come and get her. When she tries to sneak out and we see her she runs back to her room and quickly climbs in bed...its pretty cute. As far as potty training, I'm not quiet sure I'm going to tackle that until after the baby comes...we'll see.

Doctors: Gracie had her 2 year check up and weighed 25 lbs and was 33 1/2 inches (both in the 25th percentile). She was very good and loved having the doctor check everything out. She was especially excited for her shot (I think it's because we play doctor a lot at home and the shot is her favorite instrument). Poor girl, she was in for a big surprise. Afterwards she kept saying, "I sad, I shot, I sad".

32 Weeks: I'm 32 weeks along and everything is going really well. I feel great and look forward to meeting this sweet little girl who moves around in my belly way more than Gracie ever did. If you have any suggestions on names we'd love to hear them. Gracie came with my to my apt. today and insisted on undressing because she remembers that from her apt. She was pulling at her dress when the doctor came in saying, "I nakie doctor". It was pretty funny.
