Birthday Girl

Gracious Mae's 1st birthday party was lots of fun! She had her first cupcake and one of her baby girlfriends shared her First Birthday bib! They make the cutest things for babies, I tell ya!

It was wonderful to get freinds, family, and neighbors together; our little village celebrating Grace's first year. She was walking all over, showing us all that she's left her babyhood behind and embracing the life of a toddler. I keep telling her to slow down, but she's too independent for anything to hold her back.

She did better than I expected with all the attention, and even managed to be interested in a few of the presents. I wish they didn't have to put so much tamper-proof packaging on things. A Swiss Army knife will be on my party must-have list along with matches and tape!

As we were enjoying watching the kids play, I noticed how they've all grown together. Hayden's friends have become Grace's friends too. It was beautiful to see.

I can't wait to see what happens in year 2!

I can't believe she's a year old already.

Happy Birthday to your little sweetheart.
