Birthday Girl

My little girl is 2 years old! How can that be?!

7/29/2009 - This sweet one changed our lives forever!

1 year old

2 years old

I'm hoping to take her out and do a photo shoot with her at some point and get some nicer pictures, but for now here she is enjoying the carrot cake she chose.

A week early she was able to open her present from Grandma and Grandpa Yancey in Idaho. She got a potty training doll and she was so excited unwrapping it. She has toted the doll around ever since. I'm glad she was able to unwrap it with them.

On her birthday, I wasn't feeling well. I was battling (still am) a head cold. So we did things simply. We went to Walmart to pick up her present (a swingset) from Grandma and Grandpa Nyman and while we were there we let her pick out a piece of cake from the bakery.

We had hot dogs, fries, and watermelon for dinner and then celebrated with cake. Thanks to the modern inventions we were able to Skype with Grandma and Grandpa Nyman in Alabama so they were able to be involved.

I think her favorite part of her birthday was blowing out the candles. After blowing them out she would sign more to do it again. We figured it was cheap and fun entertainment...plus it was her birthday!

Here are a couple videos from the day.





Some things about Kaidrei.

She loves swinging.

She says about 10 words but the three we here everyday are uh-oh, no, and mom(which is used in place of mom, dad, and more).

She says 1,2,3 before jumping.

She wears size 7 shoes.

She loves playing with Aidan (our neighbor who is 3) and they actually interact when they play, not just playing by themselves side by side. Most of the time they are together there is lots of giggling!

She is very helpful and loves to help Mom in the kitchen cooking and doing dishes.

She loves being outside.

She is Daddy's girl - she will bypass mom if dad is around without a doubt!

She loves going to nursery or anywhere that there are other kids to play with.

She is very sensitive - when she gets in trouble or hurts Malea she often begins to sob.

She loves her little sister and tries to get her to walk with her so they can go off and play together. She will often try to hold her on her lap and is always giving Malea hugs and kisses.

She weighs 27.8 pounds (65 percentile), is 34.75 inches tall (74 percentile) and her head is 50 cm (96 percentile).

She is a bundle of energy that keeps everyday interesting and I can't imagine life without her.

We love you Kaidrei!
