Happy Birthday Landry Grace

I am getting this out late, but it is STILL LGT's birthday so I am still OK! What a year it has been with our babies:). Hard to believe that this time last year I was meeting her for the first time(delivered her by c-section at 1pm and didn't get to see her until 9pm!!!). It has been a year of tears, challenges, trials and errors, frustrations, laughs, more tears, and oh so much love. Late nights and early mornings. Sleepless nights. Endless worries. Thousands of prayers. Countless questions. Many doctor visits(She even gave me her cell #...yeah she felt sorry for us!). Many calls from friends. Even more calls to my mom. A wonderful husband and father who helped more than most daddies. Couldn't have done it without a great support system from them and our family. Blessings, blessings, blessings!!!Never would I change a thing. Thought I would share some pictures from our first year with Landry Grace:

At 2 weeks old:

First trip to church(2.5 months):

3 months in her Easter dress(trying it over her clothes to make sure it fit!):6 months!

7 months and hanging out with Silly Jake!

Fast forward to last night when she took 8 steps ALL by herself!!:
Wow this year REALLY has flown by!
I took the kids to the see Santa last night at the Tech bookstore and it didn't go too well. You can see from Jake's body language that there was no way he was getting in Santa's lap. He was checking Landry's reaction in this picture. She didn't really care one way or the other:). Jake was that way last year as well!
Landry did(sit in Santa's lap) but not for very long. Oh well!!
And the reason I am up for this late post is that I finished my Christmas cards. I have been procrastinating for several weeks now and when I discovered that we received 3 cards in the mail yesterday and 3 more today, I decided it was time to get going! I absolutely LOVE getting cards in the mail! It is a highlight of my day:). Is that sad? Oh I don't care. I love catching up with people at Christmas. And I honestly had planned in sending a letter out with our cards this year but it just didn't happen. Maybe next year!
We also closed on our house today and that was a GOOD feeling. Now we only own 1 home. Merry Christmas to us! Now to buy or build....we will save that for a later time. Have a good rest of the week.

Sweet baby girl! I LOVE getting cards in the mail, too! It's so much fun to see friends and their sweet babies. Merry Christmas!

BTW, neither of my girls want to see Santa. I asked Audrey last night and she said NO!!!!

Happy Birthday to Landry!! It's hard to believe that she is a year old! I love Jake's expression about Santa. Lexie felt the same way! haha!

Looks like the birthday party was fun. Sorry we missed it - we planned to come but did not get back from visiting grandparents in monroe on time. I have your frame - are you coming this way soon?
Landry is getting so big and she is really really cute!!
