So this is only my third attempt at blogging. My first two simply failed, but I'm hoping this one will take off running. For those of you who don't know me, my name is Miranda. You're probably asking yourself what Life With Gracelynn is about - it's just that.

Gracelynn is an almost 19-month-old bundle of energy who has come to understand that she can use the word "NO!" as much as her Mommy can. Want to know a little more? She is the first child for her Mommy and Daddy and also the first grandchild on both sides, which gives her the title of SPOILED ROTTEN. And she wears it proudly!

Gracelynn (who our family calls Gracie for short) is now speaking - somewhat - in full sentences, like "I don't like it." ; "I want more." ; and "I want to eat." She can also count, only if you start counting she skips numbers. She has been walking since she was nine months old, we weaned her off her bottle just after her first birthday, but we have yet to start potty training or give up the security blanket: the ever blessed pacificier (we call it a pappy).

And if you're wondering when we're going to let go of the pappy, we're working on that.

Now that I'm done rambling and you know who Gracelynn is, be sure to check back for more updates on her life and our life with her.
