Just the Birthday Girl

Looking through all the photos of Gillian Grace's first birthday, it has become obvious that I have a serious problem, an addiction of sorts. I am a pictureholic! I can't stop snapping pictures, especially of GG. And, really can you blame me? I know there are others out there with a similar affliction. So tell me, what's a momma to do?

Why, post more birthday photos, of course!

With more pictures arriving today still not uploaded to my computer, I'll wait until the beginning of the week to post pictures of GG and her friends and I'll end the week with photos of just the birthday girl in all her party finery. After all, that's what y'all really wanted to see anyway, right?

Hope y'all have a fantastic weekend! With a tropical system heading our way looks like this one is going to be spent indoors! Thank goodness Gillybean's birthday party was last weekend! Whew!

"Oooh! It's my birthday!"

"I'm so confused! Are y'all here for me?"

"I can't believe it! I'm speechless!"

"Come on inside!"

"Let's party!"










See y'all Monday!

She's adorable! I love her outfit and she looks so happy to be the birthday girl! The pictures of her and the balloons are great! As for being a pictureholic, I say the only cure is to just keep taking more pictures. :)

Coming back for a visit to your blog. Can I just say your little girl is sooo darling? I mean really, she is just adorable. She seems like such a happy girl and who wouldn't be with all that love and attention.
I love when she smiles so big her little tongue sticks out. Precious!

Precious! What kind of camera do you use? Your pictures are awesome!

Avery's Mommy said...

Hi Shannon -

Nice to hear from you! My mom was there to take the shots, although we trusted my uncle w/ the group shot and he left something to be desired. I think next time we'll hire a local photographer!

And we learned our lesson - ain't no beach like a Florida beach! (on the gulf coast at least!) I hear Alabama's are just as great. The oil wasn't too bad there. Just a few tar balls at night. Hope you and GG are having a fabulous day :)
