The shortest year of my life!

Well, Grace turned 1 on Sunday, can you believe it?! My little baby is a year old. Time really does fly when you're having fun! She is such a joy to have in our lives, and I am grateful every day that Heavenly Father blessed us with her. She has the cutest personality, and she loves to laugh and play jokes on us! She says all kinds of words (the dr. was very impressed with her vocabulary!) and she is so close to walking! She cruises on furniture with the best of 'em, and she has started trying to take steps, but still falls down. She'll get it soon enough, I'm sure, and then we'll never be able to keep up with her!

She had her one year check on Wednesday. Here are her stats: 30 inches tall, 20lbs. 12oz. She is still in the 80th percentile for height, and 50th for weight. She is our perfect little angel!

Grace has taught me so much about life. It's amazing how unselfish you must become when you have a child. Life is no longer about you. It's about doing anything and everything to keep your baby happy. And there is nothing I wouldn't do for her. She is truly the best gift Matt & I have ever received.

I guess with the last page of the first year being written, Grace decided she needed to change into a bigger kid. She's working on only 1 nap a day now, and she thinks she is so grown up. Why shouldn't she be able to do all of the things mommy and daddy do? She does have her own car to drive, afterall! (pictures coming soon!)

Well, I cannot beleive my baby is one! She is our favorite person in the whole wide world! We couldn't have wished for a better child. We are so lucky!
