We celebrated Graham's first birthday 'fiesta style' on Saturday. It was a beautiful day. I cannot even believe he is one. We ate tacos, chips and salsa, hit a piñata and played with a parachute. Fun was had by all.
Happy FIRST Birthday Graham Carter Summerville. We cannot imagine life without you. You have been such a sweet, laid-back and smiley baby. Your first year has just flown by. We look forward to the adventures that are ahead!
Your daddy and I pray that you will be a God-filled leader, a difference-maker,
that you will always see the glass half full, that you will serve others,that you will commit and never quit. Your happiness is dependent upon your attitude. Lastly,
know that the God who made the universe created you and has a special plan for your life. He loves
you and we do too. Happy First Birthday Graham! The world is so much sweeter with you in
On Saturday we had our first trip to Hall Family Farm to pick strawberries. We had such a fun time and the weather was gorgeous. The strawberry slushies and hayride were a hit too. We cannot wait to visit again next year.
Georgia just completed her first year of dance and ended the year with a precious recital. She and her other classmates danced one tap and one ballet dance. We were so proud of Georgia. When she first ran out onto the stage she couldn't see us and tried her hardest to find us in the crowd before her dance started. It was so cute. What a great year of dance it was!
11 months. How can this be?!? Your biggest milestone this month was walking with the walker. You get so very excited when walking. You can stand up on your own without holding on to anything. I expect you will be walking on your own very soon. We are planning a small family fiesta to celebrate his first birthday that is quickly approaching!
What Graham has been up to:
-Loving bath time -You laugh at your sister when she is being silly -You have been teething terribly over the past month – many sleepless nights for mama and dada (8 teeth total) -You can say mama, dada, jaja (Georgia) -You know how to wave -You continue to love books, playing the piano, vanilla puffs, scrambled eggs, bananas and cheerios -You enjoy being outside riding your little orange car -You weigh around 23 pounds
