Happy First Birthday Katie Belle!

I got this cute outfit for Katie, from Susan at Golightly's. She has lots of other cute ones too. I kind of wanted a different cupcake outfit for everyday this week. I controlled myself!

My mom happened to get the matching hat! Great minds think alike.

So, this is when Katie and I met face to face one year ago today.

We are both thinking what in the world just happened to me?!
See, great minds think alike!

This morning Katie had a surprise waiting for her outside!

A pink swing. Just what she always wanted!

She loved it. We didn't have too much time to swing, because we had to catch a train!

We rode the little train in Ft. Worth that is just outside of the zoo.

We wanted to get on the first ride at 10:00, before Texas caught on fire from all the HEAT!

I love this picture of her looking like a big girl sitting by herself.

Most of the time she rode on her daddy's lap or my lap and took in the sights.

Then we had lunch at the new Love Shack. It's a burger place owned by Chef Tim Love.

It was great. Here Katie is saying Yea for french fries!

After lunch it was nap time, then swimming and dinner at her Nonni and Grampy's house.
Her party is on Saturday.

One thing I can for sure teach this girl, is how to stretch out a birthday!

This is Katie's ride home from the hospital when she was brand new.

Marcus just asked me if I regretted putting that huge thing in her hair?!
Uh, the only thing I regret is that it's not even huger!

I am so thankful for all the people that told me "it" goes so fast and to enjoy it. I actually started to listen after the 50th person said it. I'm glad I did. I can really say that I have thoroughly enjoyed this year.
I think it's been the best of my life!

It is so fun to follow your blog Mrs Dina - you will be so glad as Katie grows up through the years of how well you kept pictures and notes and scrapbooks. Our family pics are unorganized and scattered in photos boxes but you INSPIRE !! Have a great weekend :)
