My baby is 2!!

Is it odd that I still think of Gracie as my baby, although she no longer is the youngest? I guess if she's the baby, Lily is the newborn. Perhaps the strangest thing for me today was the fact that my baby turned 2, and I already have another one. And I'm not the only one thinking that! Several people at church mentioned it to me. Life is a beautiful thing and I'm so happy that God has blessed me with three gorgeous daughters!

Gracie loves monkeys, so we had a Curious George birthday. She's been talking about her "monkey birthday" for a few weeks now. She has a slight obsession with "sprinkled donuts" and when she saw the cupcakes with sprinkles today, she kept asking for "sprinkled donut."

A "small" gathering for us is close to 50 people (including kids and babies of which there are a lot). Seriously--the majority are family and then a few close friends who are more like family. We had the party at a park and everyone just hung out, chatted, played some whiffle ball and enjoyed the beautiful weather we were blessed with today.

Unfortunately Gracie was a bit tired going into the party and it was during her naptime. But she still seemed to enjoy it and realize it was for her. She just wasn't as animated as a rested Gracie would have been. It was fun to celebrate her!

I had planned to post her birth story on her birthday...but it isn't quite finished. So I will try to do that tomorrow. She made quite an entrance! In fact, none of my children's deliveries have been standard. They make a statement with the circumstances surrounding their arrival to the world.

Probably a very telling fact. My girls like to make their mark and let you know who they are and what they want. Hmmm....unfortunately it sounds a lot like their mama, I will admit it. How did that happen?


  1. Happy Birthday Gracie! Glad you had a fun full day celebrating :)

  2. Sounds like you guys had a blast! I wish I had the dedication to SHRED! maybe someday!!!
