Do you ever wonder---What were they THINKING??????????

I do....................

Makes me a wee bit crazy sometimes.

I think everyone has a few of those ppl in your life that you just want to sit down and "parent". You know what I mean. Force them into reality and maturity. Pretty sure you can't do that though. =(

There I feel much better now that I got that off my chest. =)

Happy 1st Birthday Kili!!

I feel like it is such an accomplishment for us to have made it this far. There were many things your daddy and I expected life as a family to be. You have surpassed the amount of joy we thought you would bring into our lives. You have astounded us with your ability to learn and grow. You have taken our breath away more times than I can count. That beautiful smile, your wound up giggle, batting those eyelashes at daddy and grammy when you want something. Your first steps made me cry, and they made you squeal with delight. You have become such a sweet and affectionate child. When you were an itty bitty baby I was sometimes sadden by the fact you didn't want to cuddle. But the joy is so much greater as you have become a little cuddle bug now. You make the conscious decision to give mommy and daddy "loves" and kisses, and lay your precious fuzzy head on head on our chest. It is such a wonderful feeling to know that your child does love you back too because they want too!

In this first year you have gone from a little 5 pound baby we brought home from the hospital to a 24 pound whopper. And it looks like you will ONLY have 8 teeth as you celebrate your first birthday. We are working on a sipppy cup. But mommy just doesn't have the heart to yank your bottle yet. I don't feel that your ready, or maybe I'm not! You are a paci-holic and that's just fine. Your favorite words are daddy, "Oh sweet baby", thank you and hey. I can't wait to watch you continue to learn and grow, but that doesn't mean that you need to hurry or rush. Regardless of what daddy says, you'll always be my baby.

Baby cakes we love you more than you will ever know. I never knew how much love my heart was capable of giving until you came into our lives. What a sweet surprise God blessed us with. He knew just how much joy and beauty we would be missing if you weren't in our lives.

They Come Two by Two

Seems like everytime Kili gets teeth they come in pairs, with the exceptions of the time she got three and once and another time she got one by its lonesome. Looks like we have another set of two coming in. This will give her a grand total of 9 teeth before she turns one. 9 teeth she doesn't know how to use. 9 teeth I have to fight to brush. 9 teeth that make up and absolutely precious gleaming smile. :))

Posting a Milestone!!!

Kili is finally starting to like walking!!!

Hallelujah shouts my back (and hip). Just Kidding.

It is so super precious. She tries to run and make it as far as she can before her imminent fall gets her.

So exciting, but it is SOOOOOOO much faster than her crawling. We were lucky and it took her a VERY long time before she became a fast crawler. Most of the time she still doesn't super speed crawl.

Oh and I'm going to leave you with a hilarious pic of the super serious Kili.

Did you know:

* you burn more calories eating celery than it contains.
* a lady pulled directly out of a parking spot and nearly hit Kili and myself as we were being pedestrians walking into Wal*Mart yesterday. She was pulling straight out of her parking space looking at us. And she had to hurry to do it. What was she thinking????
