My birthday!

This morning when Mommy came to get me out of bed, she said it was my birthday. That means that one year ago I came out of Mommy's tummy. She said today was going to be my day every year. When I get bigger, I'll get to do some big kid fun things, but since this is my first one, I'm just gonna hang out with Mommy and Pop as we go to Grammy and Papa's house. That sounds like a good day to me!

Pop's cousin Larae (yeah, that's right..she's got my name!) from Alaska sent me a really neat blanket for my birthday! Isn't it pretty?! I love the bright colors and I just look at them and roll around on it. It's so fun! Thanks Cousin Larae!

Since we're leaving to go to see family today and we'll be gone for a bunch of days, I will try to tell you about all my fun times in a few days. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  7. Happy Belated Birthday Braska! Sorry I missed it!

  8. Happy Birthday to your beautiful girl!!! Sorry I'm late in leaving my wishes.

    I love her new photos!!! What a doll!

    I can relate and understand sooo many of the things you have written. I too struggle with the mess at feeding - yuck! I want it all neat and clean, but the OT says let her mess with it. *sigh* Braska is doing much better with the solid foods. We are still in the first jars - and not much of that yet either.

    I can also relate to the feelings on adoption and special needs children. I look at sites far too often and my heart is just breaking.

    I love your photos and video clips. The one of her peeking out of her crib is so cute!

    Thank you for all that you share. Thank you too for your encouragment on my blog.



Be sure to leave a note so Mommy can read them to me each day!! (Sorry to add the moderation, but we were getting spammed!!) Thank you!
