Happy Birthday to a Little Darling



Hello, Dear Ones! I've been missing in action for a few days and it's all because of this little blue eyed doll you see! My precious little grand daughter. We went for a visit (it's hard being a long distant grandma) and I wanted to share a few Carter shots! Today is her first birthday!

Happy Birthday, my little Angel
If you haven't met her already,
I would love to introduce you to my little grand daughter, Carter Ashlan.


Story time with Grandpa


Little Carter doesn't eat much solid food as she doesn't seem to like it.
She had never had a saltine cracker and I begged
um...asked her Mommy to just see what she would do.
Just look at all of the personality on that little sweet face.
She did chew on the cracker a little! :)
And the rest landed on the floor.


My little doll!


This walker is one of her favorite things!
She rolls all over the house in this.


Since today is her birthday, we had an early celebration for her while we were there.
Here she is getting into her stash opening presents.
She was just as fascinated with the little tags on the toys and the bows as she was the gifts!
She is a true little girly girl bow head!



Her Mommy, my Dear Daughter, made her a special birthday care from apples and bananas.


Carter seemed to be a little overwhelmed and didn't know what to do with the cake!
She decided she'd just give her Mommy a bite.


She played in the icing but just didn't realize it ought to go into her tiny mouth.
So being the wonderful Grandma I am, I put some on her little lips.
She wouldn't open her mouth for me! :) Little stinker.


Then...she licked the icing!
Eureka! She liked it!
As you can see she totaled her cake!


She decided she did not like the gooey icing all between her most tiny creamy dainty little fingers!
"Get this off me!", she was saying in Carter language.

So I'll be trying to catch up on my visits soon after all the dirty laundry is done. You know how it is! I'll sit here and think of my sweet Birthday girl and drink my Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~
