Happy Birthday, Gracie Girl!

I can’t believe it’s here! On Sunday, my sweet Gracie Girl will turn one year old! What a joy she has been to us and what happiness she has brought to our lives. Every day is better with Gracie in it.

Happy birthday, sweet Puffalump! Mommy loves you so, so much!

    Hi Katie, I’ve followed your blog for quite a while but never commented. I love this! Love. Your family’s love for Gracie is so evident in every photo. What a lucky litle girl! My son was born about two months after Gracie. I was in tears watching Gracie’s video! Can’t believe my Finn will be there before we blink. Thanks for sharing.

    What a perfect song! I love how the lyrics said “I would never make you be anything you didn’t really want to be” (or something like that) and then a picture of her dressed as a flower popped up. Perfect πŸ˜‰

    I look at you and I see your sweet Mama at one year old smiling up at me. Such sweet and tender memories you bring back for me, Gracie Girl. But I also see your own twinkling eyes and flirty little giggle and I quickly know that you are your own little girl. My granddaughter. I’m a blessed blessed Nana!

    Happy Birthday Gracie Girl!!

  37. Great video! I too have a Gracie girl. She’s 4 now but when she turned 1 a friend told me about the Gracie girl song by Ben Folds Five. I made a her a 1 year video with the same song! It makes me tear up every time I hear it! U2 has a Grace song too. It’s a good one too. Happy Birthday to your sweet Gracie!

    I was hoping you would use that song for your video! Every day when it plays on pandora it makes me want my own Gracie girl!

    LOVE this! Is it bad that it kind-of made me want to name my next baby Gracie? πŸ™‚

  40. Ann G-B

    So umm… did you name her Gracie just so you could use that song for her first year video???!
