Someone Had a First Birthday!




Someone had a very special birthday!


It is not every day that you turn one year old!


Momma bought special cupcakes...

...and lit your number one candle.

  Grandma and Grandpa came over to help sing "Happy Birthday," and take photos.



At first you weren't sure what a cupcake was...



..but you soon found out!


It did not take long before you were enjoying it like an old pro!



You even offered some to us!



Afterward you had lots or presents to open!  You are a very lucky girl!



A few days later your Aunt, Uncle and cousins came to brunch at a local restaurant where we all celebrated again! Your Uncle and you share the same birthday, so he had a special big birthday hug to give you!


Happy first birthday to our darling granddaughter and happy birthday to our dear son!  

February is a special month in our household, and we love you both so very much!


Happy Valentine's Day to all my readers!

One is fun! Isn't it just amazing how much they change in a year and yet still look so dear in each phase?

So happy she has cousins nearby!

She's adorable Pat and much loved, anyone can see. It seems like only yesterday that you were shopping for a dress to wear to your daughter's wedding.

Don't you love that little children always know to eat the best part first? I can't believe she's already walking! So tiny and sweet. Our Sam is now 17 months and still not navigating without holding on - he's a big boy, though! Happy Birthday to both Granddaughter and Son!
