Birthday pictures!

I just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone who left such wonderful advice and words of encouragement on my last post. It's good to hear from those who have been through it and made it to the other side.

Thank you to everyone for their sweet birthday wishes for Elise. She had such great birthday and is one blessed little girl! Here are some pictures from her party:

Waiting for her cake... yes, that IS my calculator, scale, and a paper with carb counts from her lunch on it. Thank you for asking!

Very excited!

Elise and Poppa

Happy Birthday Elise!

Love that face

How cute are they? Liam wishing Elise a Happy Birthday

What I forgot to take a picture of were my signs with all the carb counts for the food on them. We had three D-kiddos at the party (supposed to be four, but little Super Nate was sick, poor guy). Anyway, the signs were awesome if I do say so myself.


  1. Elise is so cute! Is this her 3rd birthday? Adorable!

  2. I think she has grown a foot in the last 9 months! She is changing right before our eyes. I love her hair back like that, she has such a beautiful face! AND I love the pic where she is waiting for the cake. She is oozing happiness. :)

  3. I love all the pictures...Elise is so cute, what a beautiful birthday girl you have!!!

    Happy Birthday Elise :)

  4. Birthdays always bring out the best smiles! So fun! Looks as though Elise had a wonderful time!

    Beautiful cake, btw!

  5. Oh, she is adorable! I'm so jealous of the d-families that live so close together! Anyone want to move to Minnesota? Glad Elise had a fun and wonderful birthday! She really is just oozing happiness! Great job, Joanne!

  6. OH, HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! It feels like I'm watching her grow up :)

    Oh wait!

    I am!
