What’s more fun than an Easter floral & new patent leather shoes? Being an old soul…I would have wrestled alligators to get Grace in an Easter bonnet BUT wrestling with a 3 year old just to get her out he door to church was all this preggo mama could handle. Here we are admiring each other in our Sunday Best! Soaking up these moments. I love a holiday!
Planning a 1st birthday party for New Year’s Day is not for the faint of heart! It’s right in the heart of the holiday season and just a few short hours after the biggest party night of the year (ouch)! In spite of it all….our New Year’s Birthday Bash went off without a hitch. Gracie was surrounded by all of her best friends and family and that’s all a girl can ask for. I can’t think of a better way to ring in the New Year!
Happy New Year and Happy Birthday to our girl! Cheers!
Gracie is 1! Where does the time go?
If there’s one thing I can tell you about pregnancy…it’s that you’ll get tons of unsolicited advice! But one thing really held true. So many parents told me that time would fly once the child was born. They said things like, “don’t blink“ and “you’ll wake up on day and they’ll be in college“. To which I thought…..“you’re being really dramatic“. Well, I was wrong! This has not only been the most wonderful and challenging year of my life…but it’s also been the fastest. Now that my little baby is walking and talking I really don’t want to miss a second. So, if anyone has a way to get through life without blinking….let me know!
One year ago…late at night with contractions coming moments apart I took one last look at this book and placed it in our empty nursery. I knew the next time I saw it I would have a baby in my arms. I didn’t know if it would be a boy or a girl and I certainly had no idea how much I could love this little person. But I did know that life would never be the same. Tomorrow my sweet, Grace Louise, turns 1.
Today I introduced the newest member of our family, Grace Louise, to my Good Day LA family and all of you. I’ve had many TV accomplishments in my life but I have never been prouder than today when I was introduced as “Grace’s Mom”.
I have had so much fun sharing my pregnancy & now my little girl with all of you. Your well wishes & outpouring of support has meant the world.My husband and I just can’t believe Grace belongs to us & we get to keep her forever. Motherhood is beyond my wildest dreams. I have never felt so blessed and so grateful in my whole life.
I’m enjoying my time off so I can just love on my sweet little angel & hang out in our PJs all day! But I’ll be back to work in a few weeks! If I didn’t have so much stinkin’ fun at GDLA & love my co-workers SO much…I’d be tempted to stay home forever! But something tells my all of these beautiful girly outfits aren’t going to pay for themselves!
I’ll be in touch! I’m not far away. I’m updating all the time in all the usual places. Just think of all of the fun projects & adventures Gracie & I will get into!
Now back to my most important job today & everyday….being “Grace’s Mom”.
