Turning 1...

The week long celebration of Brea's first birthday has officially come to a close. What a fun birthday week she had. First Grandma Shirley and Grandpa Rod from Nebraska, and Uncle Jason from Texas (mommy's family) came for a long weekend visit. Cupcakes were made, the candle was lit, and as you can see cake was enjoyed and much fun was had. Her actual birthday was rather quiet in nature. We ventured out as a core family for lunch, but being a Tuesday, our normal day to day activities pretty much went on as normal. Then came the second birthday party with Grandma Peg, Grandpa Bob, and cousin Hunter from Kansas, and Great Grandparents Hig, Great Uncle Chris and Great Aunt Pam from just down the road. (All members of daddy's family.) Cake was once again spread to every corner of the high chair tray and Brea hammed it up for everyone as she opened her gifts and played with her new toys. It was so special to be able to celebrate this mile stone with so many family members. Thank you all for your travels to be with us for this special occasion!

It's really hard for me to accept the fact that a year has already passed since she came into our lives. But then again it feels so natural to be a family of 4 and those days of being a family of 3 seem so far behind us. The past couple weeks have been weeks of growth and change for Brea. She's transitioned to using the sippy cup exclusively (no more nursing...both a welcome and sad change in mommy's life), she's started walking, and with the warmer, more humid weather soft curls have come to her hair.We are so blessed to have 2 beautiful, loving, and happy girlies in our lives.

Happy 1st birthday baby girl! Luv you lots!
