Look Whooos turning one!

How does one go from this...
to this?!?! in what feels like a day.
McKae is 1!  She is our big, grown up girl who has got some tude' and quite the personality.
At age one...
-she loves to play hide and seek (and she's good at it)
- she is miss independent and likes to feed herself with a spoon
-she has taken 10 steps, but prefers to crawls b/c it's faster
-she won't take babyfood and is a bit of a picky eater
-favorite foods: pickles, beans, olives, and crackers
-she loves to laugh, most of the time politely
-she LOVES books
-she has 7 teeth
-she will raise her hand when you ask her a question... (i.e. "who loves daddy?" hand will pop up, but only if Jordan asks the questions)
-she loves "Jesus wants me for a sunbeam" (probably just watching mom and dad make a fool of themselves while jumping up and down
-she will clap her hands to "if you're happy and you know it"
-she loves to chase the vaccuum and have the blow dryer blown in her face
-and she is just the smiliest, happy baby girl that we love!

We celebrated McKae's 1st birthday about a month ago and it was a blast... and a bit stressful! We were in the process of packing up our house to move to Houston the next week, but we still wanted her to have a party. So we had just a few close friends and family over and played games.

To our amazement, McKae was quite the 'delicate' cake eater.  She would eat one sprinkle at a time and maybe dip her finger gently into the frosting.  She never really dug in, but she still enjoyed all the sugar.

Jordan and I truly consider ourselves the luckiest people.  We are so happy and grateful for our sweet McKae!
