My parents hosted Violet’s FIRST birthday party, which was very reminiscent of exactly one year ago and a few days, which was my baby shower. Little did I know that I would be going into labor the very next day!!! 2 Weeks early!

Here I am big and pregnant with my sweet little Violet, March 13, 2010.

And now….me (minus 50 pounds) and my sweet little Violet a whole year old. March 19, 2011.

The Birthday girl wasn’t feeling so great at her party though. : (

She had just had her one year old shots.

Proud grandparents at her party!

Me and Grant a year ago at the baby shower.

And now…decorating cupcakes together.

Happy 1st Birthday, Princess!

She didn’t want to make too much of a mess! Not one piece of chocolate got on her face.

And what are big brothers for???? To play with your birthday presents for you and not let you have a turn! : )
