Lyla turns ONE

I can't believe our sweet Lyla Kennedy is already ONE year old! She got to spend her birthday in the middle of the ocean on the Disney Cruise, so she had a very fun day!

Here she is at her birth moment:

My Birthday Twins - Lyla and Daddy at their Birthday Dinner!

And with the women who birthed them

Lyla at ONE YEAR

Walking since the end of 10 months
Eats anything and everything - brisket is her favorite!
Smiles and laughs all the time
Loves to explore and get into things - especially pulling things out of the cabinets
Loves going outside and swinging!
Still uses her paci for nap and bedtime. She twists it in her mouth when she is going to sleep
Thinks her "bruh-ba" is soooo funny and is always watching what he's doing
Is a Mama's girl and I love to have her by my side all day
And she FINALLY says "Mama"
Loves her Dada so much and gets so excited to see him or call him on the phone - and she talks about him all day while he's at work
Pretends to talk on the phone a lot"hey-o?"
Has 7 teeth - four on top, three on bottom
Has been to Puerto Rico and the Castaway Cay in the Bahamas
Loves to Dance!
Her favorite toys are her princesses and castle that Carlyle gave her, her picnic basket, and whatever toy of Emmet's she can get away with playing with before he notices
Is starting to play with her baby dolls - "nigh nigh" baby

She is really just the sweetest little girl! We are so smitten with her and can't wait to see more of her personality emerge in the year to come.
Mama and Dada love you so much, Lyla Belle!

Lyla's First Year

What a year it has been with our beautiful baby girl! It's amazing how this new person comes into the world and completes you in a way you didn't know you even needed. I don't know how we ever lived a day without her! She is so sweet and happy and loving and fun!
