One year!!

Today was the day, the day a certain little someone turned ONE!!  WOW, this year flew by. It really seems like just yesterday that I was blessed with having this beautiful baby girl placed in my arms at the hospital.  Everyone warned me it would happen in the blink of an eye, and it turns out they were right!   This year has been truly amazing with Kiley in our lives, and I would not change it for anything.  It's amazing to think that we had a life before her.  She brings so much joy to each and everyday and I know it can only get better from here!! 

We have had a crazy few weeks, but this past weekend we went back to Iowa for her big bday party there, and it was fabulous!! (thank you to everyone who made it out there!)  Today we spent the morning catching up on sleep and hanging out, then we headed to see daddy at work--who ended up taking a half day to spend time with his little love on her big day.  We had lunch at Applebee's, where the WHOLE entire staff brought out ice cream for Kiley and sang happy bday to her! (it was adorable.)   Daddy had a cake made for Kiley so that she could have that tonight, so needless to say our night ended with a bath!  Now we just have the Illinois party left for this weekend!! I am waiting to post any pictures from her bday party until we have the next one.  Kiley will be wearing the same outfit and we don't want to spoil the fun!! ;)

Well as I look back and remember this day one year ago  I will share some photos!!  Maybe when I have more time I will post about the latest Kiley happenings, and maybe a post about the birth of our sweet little k.
