As you've figured out, Gracie's first birthday was Saturday. The morning started out miserable as it was raining and of course, our party was being held outside. It never rains in SoCal so why shouldn't it rain when we have an outdoor event planned!! Poor Jerry was arranging and re-arranging the tables so he could fit everyone under the tents and avoid the puddles that were building up on our patio. Not an easy task to do when you have over 40 people coming! When it was time for Gracie's party, the rain had let up and the sun was breaking through the clouds. Everyone had a wonderful time, including Gracie and she got lots of nice gifts. Gracie is very lucky to have so many people who love her and take the time out of their busy schedules to come and celebrate her special day.

Proud Grandpa

Gracie loves balloons. Here she is with Uncle Pete having a ball!

Is this balloon really for me???

Her very first present that she got to open. She loved the ribbon and forgot about the rest of the gift.

She was taking too long so her cousin Kevin decided to help out

One of the many cute outfits that Gracie received

Jerry went to grab Gracie's cake and it slid right off the plate it was on. Good thing it wasn't the real thing because it ended up with a big crack in it!!!

We had a Halloween theme for Gracie's birthday. Here is the beautiful cake that was made for her. It tasted pretty good too!

At first, Gracie wasn't sure about the cake

Do I like this or not???

She decided she did like the cake and so did the rest of her!

Are we almost done yet???

Gracie loves stuffed animals

I call this her China man face

Uncle Frank shares a special moment with Gracie

Too cute for words!!!!

Gracie now has 3 teeth and weighs around 19 pounds. She can say uh oh and daddy. When we say bye, bye, she waves and trys to say it. When we say yay Gracie, she starts to clap. She imitates everything we do and the other day, Jerry said daddy and pointed to himself, Gracie of course said daddy and pointed at herself! When she screams and I scream back, she starts grinning like it's the funniest thing. She can pull up on anything and cruises around the furniture. She puts everything in her mouth including but not limited to dog food, dog hair, paper, leaves (she's eaten two), and anything she can get her little hands on. She loves music and books.
