The Birthday Girl

Okay, it's about time I posted pictures from Grace's birthday, since she turned 2 a month ago! We had the family over for dinner and cake, and watched our big girl open her presents. Hard to believe she has gone from baby to little person in just the last year.

For the first time, Grace was able (and interested enough) to open her presents herself.

Grace's favorite part of the day, the cake. Complete with colorful sprinkles and two candles.

She learned this one from her brothers.

The gift she's always wanted: a Chapstick of her own. She somehow made this one last almost two weeks. She carried it everywhere she went and smelled constantly like grape.

Everybody needs Chapstick now.

Happy birthday, precious girl!

I can't believe how much she's grown! When she was here, she couldn't even sit up or crawl. Can't wait to see you again!
