Kylie's First Birthday

August 31, 2009

We could not have asked for a more beautiful day for Kylie's party! She had a Garden Party themed birthday complete with tissue paper flowers and flower shaped birthday cakes. Some of our close friends and neighbors came to celebrate with us, but best of all, Papa T and TiTi (my dad and sister) came all the way from California and New Hampshire for the party!! We absolutely loved having them here and it made Kylie's birthday so special for all of us!

Here's a little peek at how much fun we all had at Kylie's 1st Birthday Party!


PaPa's Pictures

While my Dad was here he took sooooo many pictures of his favorite little Granddaughter. He burned through his camera's memory card twice! He are just a few of his hundreds of pictures that I though were cute. Thanks, Dad!

What a Ham!

One Whole Year Old!

August 19, 2009

One year ago, today, this amazing little girl came into our lives... and we have never been happier! Everyone says it, and I'm going to say it too: I cannot believe how quickly she is growing up. Every day, she not only looks older, but acts older too. She is so beautiful and so smart, and it makes me want to cry just thinking about how wonderful our little Kylie is. We have been so blessed to be able to have her for this past year and we can't wait to spend the rest of eternity with our KyKy. Happy Birthday, Princess!!! We love you!

Kylie thinks bath-time is the most wonderful thing in the world. We have recently gotten her a bunch of bath toys and she just can't get enough of them! In the middle of the day I will find her walking to the bathroom and trying to get into the bathtub just so she can play. Oh and by the way, we are starting to grow some real hair! Yippee!!!

Kylie just looked so cute in her little church outfit on Sunday. I asked her if I could take a picture, so she sat down and crossed her legs and gave me a little smile, just to humor me. What a little model we have!


Summer Fun

August 14, 2009

Kylie loves her swimming pools! We have a couple little blow up swimming pools that we set up in our backyard and Kylie gets so excited when we decide to go out swimming. She just loves being outside, period. This summer has been especially nice because it hasn't been anywhere near as humid as it usually is. All of the locals say that this is the most mild summer they can remember. So we have been spending alot of time outside and having tons of fun! Kylie loves it so much that we are even going to feature her favorite blow-up pools at her birthday party next weekend! So fun!

She was trying to be sneaky and climb into the pool while I was taking the pictures.

She is so stinking cute. You can't help but smile when you see that big grin.

Today I was doing laundry and had our laundry cart wheeled into the laundry room. Kylie was right at my side, and kept pulling and banging on the cart so I figured she just wanted to get in. She loved it! I wheeled her around and she just stood there practicing her parade wave as we circled the house. Who needs expensive toys when you have laundry carts.


3 Times in 3 Months?!?

August 8, 2009

That's right, we just got back from our third trip to Idaho in the last 3 months! We went this time because Mike's best friend from childhood was getting married and they also asked me to be their photographer. We had a ton of fun, but the trip was far too short!

Kylie loves giving hugs with her baby.

While we were there we also had a little photo shoot with our little KyKy for her First Birthday invitations!!! {I can't believe she's almost ONE!} As soon as those invites are delivered I will post some of those gorgeous pictures of Miss Kylie playing in a corn field.
