Happy 1st Birthday Kyla Pearl!

Good morning birthday girl!

Got a little Rudolph look going!

Daddy got her a pretty birthday balloon!

Laughing at Momma while she sings Happy Birthday!

Playing with her balloon and waiting for Grandma and Grandpa to get here!

She loves bouncing on Grandpa's lap!

Her new chair from Grandma and Grandpa!  She loves it!

Grandma and Grandpa brought the birthday cake too.  They are the best!

Singing Happy Birthday!  She wasn't sure what to think of everyone singing to her.

Dig in!

Such a sweet girl...wanted to share with Daddy!

More presents!

After a long, but fun day, it's time for bed!


Kyla, I cannot believe we celebrated your 1st birthday today.  You are such a blessing in our lives and I can't wait to celebrate MANY more birthdays as a family.

 You have your one year checkup tomorrow so we will see how you're doing as far as growth.

You are still really close to walking, but still only taking a couple steps at a time.  I do think you're sick of crawling because you whine every time you have to crawl somewhere.  You think Mom or Dad will pick you up and carry you if you whine.  Walking will make things much easier, I promise!  :-)

Not a lot has changed since your 11 month update as far as sleep, teeth, eating.  You will be starting on cow's milk tomorrow though!  And you continue to only want what we eat.

I have enjoyed watching you learn and grow every month.  I can't wait to see what the next year brings and how much you continue to learn and grow.  You had lots of people wish you happy birthday on Facebook today.  I read you most of the comments, but when you're old enough to read this, I want you to know that you have so many people that love you.  They enjoy reading our updates and seeing how cute you are (I can't blame them).

Your daddy and I love you so much.  We don't know what we would do without you in our lives.  You are our everything.  You will always be our baby. 

Love, Mommy

And we couldn't leave out a video of Kyla eating her cake tonight (sorry it's a little shaky, I was laughing!)

And sorry it's small...it's a little easier to see on You Tube here.

Enjoy :-)
