Happy Birthday Brooke and Grandpa!!

Yesterday Brooke turned 1 year old and my Dad ...well lets leave that up to him to tell you what age he is now. Anyway we woke up and as Joe's tradition is-he can't wait to have the kids open their presents so yes-even before Breakfast Brooke opened hers:

We had cake after dinner-a tradition that I stick with. It was so funny to watch because instead of diving into the cake with gusto like my other two girls did at that age-she prettily ate with her pincher grasp and barely got any frosting or cake crumbs on her. I mean we are used to laying down a tarp and hosing the children down after thier first birthdays because usually they would have cake up their noses, in thier hair-their eyelashes-one even had gotten some in her ear. But not with Brooke-she ate so delicately and clean that all I had to do was wash her hands and wipe that frosting mustache off her face. Already a little lady.

Happy Birthday Brooke! I cannot believe she's a year already. How funny she didn't dive right in. I have a picture of McKay face-planted right in some cake! Her hair is getting so long...I love the "pixie-doll" look...if you even know what those are! hehe!
