Good day

We had such a good day today with Gisèle! We started by going out to breakfast, which we never seem to get the opportunity to do. Before we left, we told Gisèle that she could eat pancakes at the restaurant, and the entire trip there was spent with her saying "Mama, Daddy, paa-cake!" So we ordered a plate of silver-dollar pancakes for her. And she ate the ENTIRE thing. Long after we had finished, she was happily dipping her pancakes into the syrup and gobbling them up.

She charms everyone she meets. At the restaurant, she made sure to wave and say "hi!" to everyone who passed by, grinning at them like they were the person she most wanted to see in the entire world. She did the same at the grocery store later. Getting a piece of fresh pineapple is her special treat at the store, and she loves to point it out to everybody she sees. She'll hold out her chunk of pineapple and say "apple!!" to each person we pass - multiple times if they don't immediately acknowledge her. Luckily, she's cute enough that no one seems to mind.

Our other outing today was to Target, where we picked up some shoes for her. Water shoes (for Splash Day Fridays at school), flip-flops (since she's outgrown her current ones), and some pink Converse sneakers (just 'cause they were cute.) She loves shoes, and while I pushed the cart through the shoe section, we both happily sing-songed "shoes, shoes, shoes!"

We finished the day at home, where she put her babydoll down for "night-night" several times, read lots of books, colored, and was tickled by her daddy. We also got the chance to Skype with Nana, Papa, Meme, Pepe, and Aunt Michelle and Uncle Tim. She was tired by that point, but spent the 15 minutes after our video call repeating everyone's name aloud, and letting Mama and Daddy know that she had talked to them on the "puter."

All in all, a very good day. We've been blessed with such a happy girl!
