Graceanna 2nd Birthday ∙ September 3, 2010

by Heidi

A week ago today, on September 3rd, we celebrated Graceanna’s 2nd birthday.  Mommy, Daddy, and Brother were all so excited; we couldn’t wait for her to wake up that morning.  Gunnar greeted her with a squeeze as she sat down at her new table.

Graceanna knew exactly how to open presents.  (I remember Gunnar still not being so sure what to do with presents when he was two.)

She also knew what to do with the bows.

Later that day Grandma and Grandpa as well as Aunt, Uncle, and Cousins came to celebrate. 
Uncle Taylor wanted a picture with the birthday girl.  This was the best she would give us.

Graceanna hugged and patted Myers, her cousin who is one month older, all night.  She tried to check his diaper even though she was the one in need of a change.  I don’t think Myers loved all her mothering.

Thanksgiving for our precious girl.

Birthday Girl was ready to eat.

Graceanna’s favorite part of the night.  Grandma’s cake!

Graceanna saw her cake and was EXCITED!  I’m sick that I didn’t get her in focus, but I still love it.


She received so many presents including this super cute tea set, a shopping cart, baby bed for her dolls, and some new smocked dresses Grandma made.  It’s been so fun to see her excitement and watch her play with these new things for hours.  She sits at her table pouring tea while I cook dinner every night.  So, so cute!

Happy Birthday Baby Girl!

You brought the sparkle to our lives that we didn’t even know we were missing.
