Happy Birthday Kaitlyn!

I can't believe my baby is a year old today! She was born at 9:00 p.m., March 14, 2007. She was little and long, weighing 6 lbs, 10 oz. and measuring 19.5 inches long. Here are some early pictures...










































She's been such a good baby. She is so happy and well-mannered, unless she's hungry! The girl can eat! Now that she's eating people food, she can't get enough it seems. I think she'd eat dirt if we put it before her! She's an expert traveler, having flown to Seattle and back 3 times in her young life. She is laid back and just goes with the flow. She absolutely loves her sister, even amidst Hannah's not-so-gentle ways at times. Her face always lights up when she sees Hannah. She's very cute when she gets excited. Well, she's cute all the time! But, when she's excited she gets a huge smile on her face, starts bouncing, and wiggles her arms and legs. This is the kind of reception the Cheerios box receives! Again, food! She can say words like, ma ma, da da, goo (for book), bye, hi......... She loves to wave hello and bye-bye, clap, and sway to music.

She's got 2 teeth and still very little hair. We thought Hannah was a baldy! But we could actually clip a bow in her hair by the time she was 1 - not so with Kaitlyn! She is an expert walker now - crawling is so last month! Her new nickname from Paw Paw is "wobble bottom". She is so cute and lovable we just don't know what we'd do without her!

Here are some pictures taken just this week.





























We love you, Kaitlyn Vanessa!
