Shawty = “A term originating in Atlanta that, in the beginning, referred to a short person or child…” (thanks, urban dictionary).

AKA a term used in the 50 Cent’s 2003 hit song “In da Club.”  (Y’all should know by now that I have a pretty… eclectic… taste in music.)

AKA a new nickname for Mary Grace.

We just returned from her 3 year old check up, and the girl’s in the tenth percentile for height (25th for weight).  She’s teensy!  I mean, I’m not sure what I was expecting, given her gene pool and all.  But that just provides the added impetus to get the girl in gymnastics.


And finally, we have Birthday Interview Numero Dos. I can’t resist capturing her funny little voice on video these days. We’ve been told she sounds like a Russian… a character from Monster’s Inc… Jabba the Hutt… and the list goes on. Perhaps she has a future career in voice-overs? 🙂
