Happy 1st Birthday Kailey!

Happy birthday to our BEAUTIFUL little girl Kailey!  It is amazing how quickly time flies by when you are having fun!  


Kailey  has brought so much to our lives and we are ever so grateful that she is here with us.  She is so independent and loves to figure things out and explore on her own.  It is so much fun to watch her discover new things as she is curious about everything.  

One thing we learned really quickly with Kailey is that she will eat anything and everything.  There isn't anything she won't try however, if she really doesn't want or like something, she will let you know!  

Kailey is just starting to stand herself up and looks like she is going to be walking very soon.  She is climbing up on some of the furniture and doesn't seem to be afraid of anything!  On most days, she can occupy herself by playing with many different toys, although doesn't seem to have a preference yet.  

She has the sweetest little laugh and at times, it makes me teary eyed just because it is so cute and makes me so happy.  

She absolutely adores her brother, even though he isn't always the nicest to her (everyone's learning though).  She likes to be near him and most especially loves when he gives her kisses and hugs.  As time has gone by, they seem to be playing better and better with each other and I look forward to seeing that relationship flourish.  

She has had a really tough time with teething, but both of my kids have.  She really struggles on the rough days and has a really hard time because then doesn't snuggle very well.  She was never our snuggler until recently it has been becoming better.

One year ago when she was entering our world, I cried happy tears when the doctor told us it was a girl.  I had this feeling deep down but the announcement from the doctor was that much better.  Kailey's birth experience was much more peaceful than Colin's, and we really appreciated that.  

Yesterday we celebrated one happy year with our beautiful little girl.  We are so thankful to our family and friends who truly made the day a special one.  

Kailey...we love you with all of our hearts.  Thank you for bringing so much love and happiness into our lives with the sass of a little girl.  Thank you for a fantastic year.  We love you!
