We celebrated my grandbaby girl's first birthday today.
Her birthday isn't for a few days,
but all her grandparents who could come this week were assembled,
and it was not a work day for mama and daddy.
You know how there is always something that captures baby's interest
that is not the cake or the presents or any of that?
Sometimes it's the boxes, sometimes the wrapping paper.
Today it was the hats.
Hers came off first, then all of ours were captured
by her eager hands.
She could have sat there and scrunched and eaten
and looked at them all day.
Later she discovered the new books.
This child loves a good book.
(And it doesn't matter if it's right-side-up or -down, sometimes.)
Finally, the "completely good for you" cake that mama
labored over for a good part of yesterday appeared.
Cake is a new food for this little girl.
She actually liked her beans and sweet potatoes better....
But the rest of us loved that cake!!
Meantime, this was what was going on beneath the high chair tray:
I'm a nut for baby feet, aren't you??
I neither can believe it has been one whole year already,
nor can I believe there was ever a time I didn't know her.
Happy Birthday, sweet baby girl!
