We celebrated Helen Grace’s first birthday with a cupcake-themed family party at our house on Saturday. We dodged a bullet with a forecast of isolated thunderstorms that afternoon- the day turned out to be nice and sunny. It was a tad on the warm side, but we kept plenty of fans and A/C running and stayed pretty cool.
It was such a surreal and beautiful moment for John and me to hold a birthday cake in front of Helen Grace, sing Happy Birthday to her, blow out her candles, and then watch her try out her cake. I tried to take in every moment, every smile, every finger stroke as she tasted the icing…and then smeared it ALL OVER herself! What a wonderful life experience to share with our family and friends! We definitely know our baby is loved!
Another new development to share in a later post but very important to note the timing…our baby girl took a full step on her own on Friday, and as of Saturday, she is WALKING! WOW!
