Happy first birthday, Gracelyn! I cannot believe she is one! We had a beautiful day celebrating her. Being a second child I feel like she never gets individual attention she deserves...and with a very active, loud brother, she has to take a back seat to everything. How special to be able to celebrate HER all day long. We started the morning with balloons in her crib and singing Happy birthday when she first woke up, which she loved. (Lucas loved it just as much. ;-) We had a birthday party for her with all our friends and my parents even came! Half way through the party I opened the door to our final guests...my Aunt Marilyn and Uncle Dennis. They flew in from Illinois to surprise us, and did they ever! Tears were flowing from excitement and surprise!
But the best part of her special day was that she started CRAWLING! It was almost 6 months to the day that we were told she may never walk or sit up so each milestone is just so emotional! There's no stopping this little girl! SUCH a fun day celebrating our Gracelyn Rose. Thank you so much to everyone who showered her with love yesterday!
