Kevin and I are so proud of where Kinley is today. Looking back to a year ago we could have only imagined that she would be crawling, eating on her own, and an otherwise healthy, happy 1 year old little girl today. We just wanted to thank everyone who has supported us and prayed for Kinley this past year. We can't express how much it truly meant to us.
Kinley - You are an inspiration to us. We are so sorry you had to go though what you did, but you did it with flying colors. We have a feeling most everything you do will be with flying colors. You have made an impact on the lives of so many people already, especially your mom and dad. Every time we look at you we see a miracle. We can't wait to see what the next year brings for you.
Setting up for the party.
Kinley's cupcake is the little one in front. Three Women and an Oven (the bakery) did a great job with her cupcake, you can't really tell from the picture, but it had "fairy dust" sprinkled on top to make it sparkle. The other mini cakes are lemon, chocolate covered strawberry, and the pink one is champagne. They were delicious!!
Kinley's cupcake was a little top-heavy with the icing, I couldn't get it to stand up after taking the wrapper off.
This is what Kinley's tray looks like after a typical meal. There is milk everywhere because she likes to pour just as much on her tray as in her mouth and there is always some milk-soaked food left on the tray.
Kobi did a great job showing Kinley how to open her gifts.
A big THANKS to my sister for practically planning the whole party. She was in charge of decorations, invitations, food, and all the little "extras" that made the party so special. Unfortunately, she was sick the day of the party and had to miss the whole thing. We were so sad she was not there, but the party was a huge success because of all her hard work planning the whole thing! Thanks Aunt Mary and get well soon!!
