Happy Birthday Kailey!

Happy 2nd birthday to Kailey!  

The first word that always comes to mind when I think of Kailey is "sassy".  She is one spunky little girl with so much attitude that I fear what the years ahead will bring.  However, she is so incredibly loving and caring that I also look forward to seeing the kind of person she evolves into.  

Just before her 2nd birthday, Kailey's language exploded!  She is just about talking to us in full sentences and has so much to say about everything.  Unfortunately, she also has no problem speaking her mind in whines and cries when she doesn't like something as well.  She surprises us every single day with the things that she says and I think that in many ways, it is really helping with Colin's speech as well.  

Kailey had a very busy day today celebrating her very special day!  She brought cupcakes to school for all of her friends, we hung out at Colin's OT and feeding therapy, went to dinner, went to a friend's middle school championship basketball game, and THEN had some friends and family over for ice cream cake and presents!  

She was so cute about opening her presents because she really seemed to be acting like "is this really for me?!".  She seemed to love EVERYTHING she got and definitely loved the spotlight when she was being sung to.  

I have to say that I was REALLY impressed with how Colin behaved as well.  Although he kept saying "my turn" while she was opening her presents, he was never pushy and only helped when she asked.  He never got upset or acted out and patiently sat there and watched like the rest of us.  We were so proud of him for how well he behaved!

Waiting for cake...

So excited to see it coming!

Couldn't WAIT to blow out the candles!

Dear Kailey, We had SO MUCH FUN celebrating with you today and are so thankful for every bit of the girliness that you have brought to our lives.  We love watching you grow and change every day and look forward to all that is yet to come!  You are one beautiful little girl and we don't know what we would do without you!  We love you so much!! Love, Mommy, Daddy, and Colin xoxoxo
