Happy 1st Birthday, Chandler Grace

Our youngest baby turned 1 on June 11th. The 5 of us celebrated with cake, ice cream and presents before dinner-big hit with Kennedy and Jackson! Everything was pink and brown for our girl.
We had Chandler Grace's cake made and delivered that day. It turned out just precious and we thought perfect for her. She didn't dive into her cake like the other 2 have. True to her personality, she pinched and picked at it. Even so, she was messy at the end!
Chandler Grace got a jack in the box from Daddy and Mama and a cell phone from her big sister and big brother. Her Grandpa and Grandma sent a balloon bouquet that day with a stuffed cat and Papa and Gigi got her a ride on toy. Nonna, Aunt Bobbie, and Aunt Belle sent sweet cards with money and got her stuffed animals. Uncle Kyle sent a sweet card, too!
We are all so in love with our sweetheart. We can't believe it's already been a year since she blessed us with her arrival. She's brought nothing but smiles since we've found out about her.

Chandler Grace is clapping; says Daddy, Mama, Clap, Hi, and Nanna (banana); waves hello and goodbye; gives five; Dances; jabbers; Eats table food-anything!; Loves to drink water; Loves to watch Blue's Clues and Yo Gabba Gabba; Constantly getting into things; Loves to be thrown in the air; Loves to be dipped backwards; loves to walk around with her eyes closed; holds arms down hands together palms up to be held; laughs when Jordan whistles; Likes to try and take the remote and run off; Loves to climb anything; Loves to take a bath; Loves to swim; Loves to play with Kennedy and Jackson-tries to keep up; Very feminine; Shy; Very fond of her Papa; A lap baby-loves to be held; a serious Mama's girl!
These are just a few of the things that best describe our C right now! She is just a joy and we are so thankful she is ours. Happy birthday, Chandler Grace!
