Happy Birthday Darlin'

I can't believe it has been a whole year that we've spent with Caroline Grace - she is really coming into her personality and loves playing with her big brother. My how our baby's grown!

Caroline turned one on Thursday, and she did pretty good with the cupcake we gave her to celebrate. Although to be honest, I think she enjoyed the ice cream a bit more. It is a lot of fun to see how much she communicates, and laughs, and expresses her pleasure or dissatisfaction with a particular experience. She is getting a laugh that lights up the whole family. Jack in particular has enjoyed being able to have a playmate, and we are enjoying the newfound independence of her increased mobility. She's not walking yet, but she's durn close.

This little girl - who used to be an expressionless King Tut beyond compare - is now a sweet, coy, flirting little gem. It is kind of amazing - her smiles just come out of nowhere, and are better for all the surprise.
