Kalli's Birthday

Well I"m finally getting around to posting Kalli's Birthday pics. I just can't seem to catch up on anything these days and I hate that it's taken me so long to post her cake eating pictures. As I said before on Valentine's Day Kalli had her first cupcake and loved it. Sunday we had a small birthday party with cake, ice cream and of course presents. It was really small b/c of the few people that were going to come were out of town or got sick. So it ended up being us, my parents, my sisters Nana and Lisa, and my good friend Elizabeth and her hubby Paul. We still had a good time and enjoyed the beautiful weather and ate outside.
Kalli wasn't wasting anytime on devouring her cake. I finally had to take it away b/c I didn't want her getting a tummy ache. As soon as I cleaned her off and put her down to play she was looking for scraps in her seat to eat! That little girl has a big sweet tooth! She takes after her momma and gege on that one. Kalli was so cute opening her presents too. She knew just what to do. I thought Kaiden would of been able to help out a little bit more but she tore that paper right off or pulled tissue right out of the bag. I was pretty impressed! In all we had a great afternoon and its still hard to believe that my baby is now 1 year old. She weighed in at 20 lbs and 14 ounces, and is 29 1/2 inches long. She's in the 75th for weight and 50th for height. She's growing so much and it amazes me how much she's learning. Some of her favorite things to do are follow brother around wherever he's going and play with whatever toy he has. She has also enjoyed playing with cars lately and even makes a car sound like me and Kaiden do! She loves to sit in little chairs. It's so cute! Kaiden has a little Thomas the Train chair that she loves to sit and lounge in. She also likes to be in the kitchen whenever I"m cooking (which is few and far between these days!) and gets all of my Tupperware, pots and pans, or Ziploc bags or all of the above! Kalli is getting much quicker on her feet and seems to be running a lot of the time. She loves to be outside just like her brother and doesn't seem to mind the taste of leaves or rocks. I lover haivng her as part of our family and especially enjoy her the sweet spirit she brings. It's also a lot of fun to go shopping for a little girl!

How nice that you guys were able to be outside for her birthday! Time sure does go by fast, huh. My Benjamin loves his sweets too, I think he would do just about anything for an M&M, I think he gets that from my mom, I am more of a carb person.

Kalli looks so cute with cake on her face! I am glad she had a great birthday! What a pain about your roof. I hope that it's fixed and you have no more leaking.
