Hailey's First Birthday....part 1

It is hard to believe that we just celebrated Hailey's first birthday. There are days that it seems like we just brought her home from the hospital just yesterday, but we are very grateful for how I was feeling this year at Mother's Day and her birthday....a much better feeling than a year ago!

Here are some pictures of two of Hailey's birthday parties as we had to celebrate with John's family before they left to visit his family in Iowa and then a celebration with my parents and grandparents. She had a wonderful time diving into the birthday cake and cupcakes. Her Gramie also gave her a piece of corn and she ate it like a pro....even though she has only two teeth! She loved all the gifts that she received and we are so happy that she finally got her first softball glove, soccer and football. She loved being able to spend time with her family and see everyone.

She continues to grow and change with each day. She is almost walking now but we are still enjoying her as she is crawling all over the place. She is into everything and is so smart. She really loves it when we read her books and she will be sure to tell you exactly which book she wants. She is such a blessing to us and we love her so much.

More pictures to come later as we have her play group on Friday for her birthday...hang tight!
