Happy Birthday Kinley!

Happy Birthay big girl! Dad and I love you so much and are so proud of the little girl you have become and are becoming.

Today is finally the day. I can't believe its been a whole year since Kinley was born. Let me update you a bit about Kinley before I tell you about our day.
Kinley Elizabeth Pappas was born at 3:52pm by C-Section.
She was 8lbs 6oz and 20.5in
She has loved her binky from the moment she was born
She has the best laugh in the world (especially when she's being chased)
She started crawling at 51/2 months and walking just before 9 months
She has 5 teeth
Loves to blow her nose (on anything)
She has visited 14 states, flew on a plane at 2 months, and owns a passport
Most of all, she loves to go to the track everyday and play, play, play

This morning we got a group call from Grami's house with lots of little voices singing Happy Birthday. We went to the track like any other day, except Kinley wore her new dress Grandma made her for her birthday. She sure looks cute! When we got home we ate lunch and then brought out the cake. I tried to make it look like a baby block, but its a little lopsided. Not bad for my first try.

Kinley needed help blowing out the candles since we didn't want any accidental snot decorations. She would only lick the tiniest bits of frosting, so Tom helped her, but she only took about 2 or 3 bites then handed it back to us and was done.

Enough of the food, on to the presents. She first opened, with help, a new baby doll outfit. Then came the LeapFrog fridge letters, and then...the new baby that goes in the bathtub. She's waterproof and floats, but most importantly to Kinley, she has a bottle.

That's about as much fun as we could pack into the birthday of our big girl. She's down now for a nap, but I'm sure she'll be up and around soon and we'll have to try out the baby in the bath. Hope y'all enjoyed sharing the day with us. See ya soon!
