My Gracie Girl

When I was pregnant and after we decided that we would name our baby Gracie, I heard this song by Ben Folds and played it for Scott.  It has become a special song for us and one day I'm sure Scott will be dancing with Gracie to it at her wedding.  

There are not enough adjectives to describe GracieAnn.  Her mood can change in a split second from sweet to sassy.  She has a quick sense of humor, a mean streak, and a smile to melt your heart.   
You can't fool me, I saw you when you came out.
You got your momma's taste but you got my mouth.
you will always have a part of me,
Nobody else is ever going to see Gracie girl .

Minutes after GracieAnn Elaine was born.

Kanin meeting his sister for the first time.
In her take home dress.

With your cards to your chest walking on your toes.
What you got in the box only Gracie knows.
And I would never make you try to be
Anything you didn't really want to be
Gracie Girl

Life flies by in seconds
You're not a baby Gracie, you're my friend.
You'll be a lady soon but until then
You gotta do what I say.

You nodded off in my arms watching TV
I won't move you an inch even though my arm's asleep.
