From Baby to Big Girl in the Blink of an Eye!

As most of you know, Elsie just celebrated the her 1st birthday!! Where did the time go? It seems like just yesterday I was pacing the up and down lane wanting the time to arrive that she would just FINALLY get here! Then before we knew it the nurses handed us our first tiny and beautiful little bundle of joy all wrapped in pink. It has been a year full of big changes and creation of wonderful lifetime memories. From holding her for the very first time, to getting absolutely no sleep, waiting for the first smile and giggle, getting excited over every sound, then rolling & crawling, looking forward to what the next word/sound she will make next, and now her first real experiences outside on the farm!! Oh how wonderful parenthood is :-) God has blessed us with such a beautiful, sweet, healthy, and fun loving little girl. We have loved every minute we have spent with her and look forward to every next minute of watching her grow into a beautful young little lady. We enjoy being parents and having a great start to our little family that is growing so fast already :-). We look forward to many more great memories with Elsie as well as our future baby who will also be here before we know it!

Here are some pictures from her birthday and birthday party at Parker Muncey Park. Elsie had such a great time! I think she could have partied all night long if we would have let her! It was a beautiful day for our little girl to celebrate surrounded by our wonderful family and friends! Enjoy!

Our little girl on her "birth" day just one year ago!

This is from her actual birthday, we took our little cowgirl out to Texas Roadhouse

At her party- she had a mosquito-bitten swollen eye but she didnt let that get in her way of having a fun time!

The duck pond was a hit with the little ones!

The jumpy slide we borrowed from Aunt Jess was a HUGE hit with the kids!

We couldn't get her out of there!

One of Elsies favorite things to do is play with kids!

Cousin Maddy "helping" open presents!

Elsie loved her own little first birthday cake!

At the end of the party, the duck pond seemed like the place to sit and relax for a few minutes - brrrrrr...
