On Feb. 7th, my first grand baby, Layne, turned one year old! As is usual, this year flew by! I've had the privilege to be with Layne quite a bit her first year, and I'm so grateful for that opportunity. She's such a source of joy. She's quite precocious and advanced in many areas, (that's not just a proud Mimi's estimation). She says many words and is walking. She can be quite sassy. When asked to do something she doesn't want to do, she wrinkles her little nose and shakes her head and says, "No, no!" She'll tease her mommy and pat her chest and say, "I Mama!" She gives kisses, and loves to hug her baby dolls.
She had a fun birthday party.
Brobee is her "Yo Gabba, Gabba" favorite. So, Anna asked me to make a Brobee cake…

With her Papa (whose name she says, but flat out refuses to say my name), before the party.
With her Daddy
Nana and Grandaddy were there to celebrate Miss Layne

Crawling through the tunnel in search of treats
Papa led some songs and was accompanied by the kid's kazoos and maracas
Enjoying her cake
A gift bag doubles as a hat
Lovin' on her Brobee doll
We love you doodle-bug! I'm so glad for the special gift in the form of this little girl!
