Look Who's One!

My baby is one!
I don't like it. I don't like the fact that she continues to grow each day and is slowly getting out of the baby phase. I miss her cuddling underneath my neck. I miss that newborn smell. I miss her grabing onto my finger and not letting go. I miss her being able to fall asleep anywhere and being able to transfer her to her bed without her waking up. I miss those times that she'd fall asleep on my chest and I could just sit and enjoy those rare moments. I miss her soft giggles that have recently turned into full belly laughs. I do love those belly laughs though! I miss many things that she only did as a little baby. I'll admit that there are definetly things that I don't miss like getting spit up on, the daily night time fussines, blow out diapers and constant drool, you know things like that!

Depsite what I want... this sweet baby girl of mine is growing up and learning new things.
My baby has learned a new game!
It's called



 and she chose to show how she plays while the family was singing Happy Birthday to her! So lucky me I've got her fun little action's caught on camera. Woo Hoo!
(Don't mind the messy hair. This is something else that is new to her, pulling out her "pretties")
This birthday she had plenty of help opening her gifts. It was a big deal that each older sibling had their very own gift to give to Kylie. It's a good thing I saved a bag full of toys that each of them got to pick from to give to her. They then each got to help her open their gifts to her.

 Here's Kylie and her very own baby doll.
 She was so excited about her car! This has been the best $30 I have ever spent!
 Kylie loves to be outside. Most sunday's we walk to church and this little car of her's has sure come in handy. Now that the weather has finally decided to warm up we've used this car numerous times for family walks, a morning walk with mom or a quick ride over to our garden spot. She loves her time in this car. If she's unhappy you know all you got to do is take her for a walk in her car. So far the kids love pushing her around in it too making it a win-win situation for all of us.

Miss Kylie's birthday fell on a busy day for daddy. We didn't have her open her gifts until after dinner. Then Daddy had a meeting at the church. We were going to eat our cupcakes and icecream when he got home but Kylie got tired before he arrived. She just may be scarred for life. The kids think it's just terrible that I did't wake her up for her to eat her cupcake we had made. She is getting a birthday cake. In fact it's in the freezer. I want to do a fun little photo shoot with her and her 1st birthday owl cake. Since my camera does terrible in low lighting I want to take her pictures outside. And that there in lies the problem. It's still a little cool in the mornings but come afternoon the wind can seriously blow you away. The wind has been terrible this year. Our garbage can is blown over numerous times a week, our bikes can't stay up on their kick stands, our trailor was actually blown off it's block, rolled over the wood behind it's back wheels and rolled into our quad and white picket fence. We have had huge tree's blown over in recent weeks. So my outdoor photo shoot has been put on hold. I'm hoping that after our upcoming family reunions are over the wind will die down some and I'll have time to decorate that cake I've been so anxiously waiting to make and get some fun pictures of my baby eating her 1st birthday cake!
