The Birthday Princess

Emma's actual birthday was on Monday.  Dan and I took the day off work to spend it with her and Dad and Mom J. while they were still in town.  It was nice to have an extra day together!

After a relaxed morning, we went to Firehouse Subs for lunch.

And did some shopping for little Miss Flexible Legs

That evening, we took her to the park where we had her party so she could swing for a while

Lots of love from Grandpa and Grandma!

She had a blast roaming free in the grass

And walking...




And getting back up!

Back at the house, she finally got that chocolate cake she was hoping for!

Dan's mom bought her a birthday tiara. Dan had to wear it for a while before she was okay with us putting it on her head. Then she'd make a surprised face and raise her hands to touch it, exactly like Miss America. She just needs to add a single glistening tear, and she's ready.

We loved having Grandma and Grandpa here to celebrate Emma's birthday with us!

We can't believe she's one. The year went by so fast, and yet we feel like she's been a part of our hearts and lives for much longer than that.

Happy Birthday, Emma! I thought about her all day on her birthday and was planning to send a video of Beckett wishing her a happy birthday, but he wanted nothing to do with that plan and then I forgot to even call or text. But we are looking forward to wishing her a belated birthday next time we see y'all. Can't believe how big she is!
