Park Days

You should now be able to view the video. Sorry! :)

First off, Happy Chinese New Year to everyone! We didn't get to celebrate at all in our house as if you recall, last Friday I wasn't feeling well. That not feeling well ended up me being in bed for almost 4 days straight. I literally could not think of food or even eat anything as I was nauseas and had the big D. I tried to force down what I could which wasn't very much. I went to the doctor and found out I had some really long sounding viral name which is basically an inflammation of my stomach walls, intestines, etc. Thank goodness I have started to feel much better and can now eat solid foods. I'm bummed though because I bought Gracie a traditional Chinese dress in China, hoping that she could wear it one day and I think she would now be able to fit into it and she didn't even get to wear it. I might put her in it and take a picture of her for my next blog header.

A few weeks ago, the weather was very warm, almost like today again. :( We took advantage of the new toddler seat that Jerry installed on my bike and went to a park by my house. The park is awesome and is 4 square miles on each side. They have duck ponds, playgrounds and all sorts of things. Gracie had a lot of fun riding behind Jerry on the bike and kept saying wee, everytime he would go down a little hill. We had a great day and the only bummer part was when the chain broke on the bike Jerry was riding, halfway back to the car but he was able to fix it.

After we got home, Gracie was extremely tired so I put her down for a nap. She never goes to sleep right away and usually chats up a storm to herself and plays around before falling asleep. I heard her screaming I mean singing at the top of her lungs and had to capture it on video as it was so cute and cracking me up. At the end of the pictures, you will hear Gracie's version of Twinkle Little Star or Tinkle Tinkle as she sings it. She actually sings it much more clearly now, along with her other songs and the theme to "Elmo's World" which Jerry taught her.
