We just invited grandparents this year, as well as one other family who is very special to Eleanor. Courtney is a student in our youth group and keeps Eleanor each Monday morning for me while I teach Spanish at the preschool. She and her family love Ellie, so we were glad they were able to come celebrate her first year of life with us. Courtney also offered to take pictures, so I can't take any credit for these photos!
ONE dollar from Great-Grandma and Great-Grandpa Burgin
Picture books from Grandma and Grandpa
Musical farm toy from Mimi and Papa
Board book from Aunt Allison
"I just do it like this?"
Mommy helped her break off her first bite
"Oh, now I've got it!"
Everyone loves Eleanor!
And of course, she had to do her phone trick. Hello?!?
And last, but not least, our friends Nora and Ava brought Ellie a birthday balloon on her actual birthday last week. I tried to get pictures of her playing with it, but she was having too much fun to be still. I got one cute one!
