Happy Birthday Kaileigh!!

On January 13, 2010, Kaileigh celebrated her very first birthday! Since it was in the middle of a very very busy week, we only had a small celebration with just Kaileigh, Nik and me. She enjoyed a small cake and opened some really fun presents! However, this past Saturday, we celebrated her birthday with a nice big party. Kaileigh's friend Madelyne celebrated her 2nd birthday on January 4th - so we combined their parties. It was a lot of fun! Four families - equalling 18 people!! Kaileigh really enjoyed herself - she just loves watching all of the kids running around like crazy! Although she does have to keep to the side, because even though she can walk, she gets knocked over often. With pretty princess hats and a beautiful purple and pink cake - the birthday party was a huge success. Kaileigh received so many wonderful presents for her first birthday: a grocery cart, bean bag chair, giant stuffed dog, picnic table, an outfit for st. patrick's day, and gift certificates to go towards her toy box!! Thank you all for the wonderful gifts and consideration on her very special day/week!

I cannot believe Kaileigh is a year old already. It seems like only a minute ago that she was born. We had such a wonderful year. Nik and I have watched her go from following our fingers with her eyes and holding her head up, to learning to crawl then running down the hall! Her personality gets better and better every day. She has a great sense of humor and really knows what she likes and doesn't like. Our little lady has also developed quite a stubborn streak. When things don't go her way - she will LET YOU KNOW! She talks all the time and has even started to dance with us. We are so amazed at the little person she is becoming; and although looking back we do have a twinge of saddness of the little baby she was; we are so happy about the little girl she is now.

Happy Birthday baby girl! You are the light of our lives and we love you so very very much!
Happy Birthday Girls!!
Pretty pretty birthday princess!
All the Kids!!
