Today we're wishing our sweet Grace Elizabeth a very happy seventh birthday! It's hard to believe that she has now completed seven trips around the sun! From the moment she arrived Earthside it felt as if we had known her forever. It was a quiet day of celebrating at home. There was much "oohing" and "ahhing" over the new additions to the birthday ring (my father has, once again, outdone himself!), presents were opened, a delicious cake was baked, her birthday story read and the birthday song sung. Everything about today was just as lovely as Grace. 

Thank you, sweet girl, for making our dream of becoming parents a reality. Thank you for all the sweetness, love, joy and kindness that you have brought with you. We can't wait to see what your next trip around the sun brings! We love you to the moon and stars and back! 
XO, Mama, Daddy and Emma


  1. Happy birthday Grace!!! May your next trip around the sun be one of adventure, laughter and love.

  2. Thanks girls! It was a wonderful day! I can't believe my first born is seven! Seems like just yesterday we were just getting to know her. Time has passed by way too quickly!
