It was bittersweet, as are most (all?) milestones. Excited to watch her continued development, sad to see the dependent baby begin to slip away.
She still is a baby, but we watch everyday as she comprehends new things, communicates more and generally kicks butt.
Here she is the morning of her birthday, enjoying her birthday cupcake. She was a fan!
She was the star of the show at her party and I am pretty sure she knew it!
She got into unwrapping presents :)
Blaise got into it, too!
At one year she was standing and taking some practice steps.
I made butterfly cupcakes to go along with our theme.
Kate has been an unbelieveable addition to our lives. She has become a pretty spunky little girl and a joy to be around.
