"She'll be a year in 2 weeks..."

Keira spent some time with me at school this afternoon while Keith ran up to Frisco (she was home sick today) and when everyone asked how old she was, it was so bittersweet (and shocking) to say "she'll be a year in 2 weeks"...she'll be a year in 2 weeks!!! Time has definitely flown by and I am so thankful that God chose me to be her mommy. Here are some of her birthday pictures I took a month ago...


Valentine's Day 2014

We had a quiet, but nice Valentine's Day. Keith decided to stay home from TMEA again this year, and the kids and I loved it! Here's hoping he decides to never go back ;-) Keith also surprised me and sent tulips to work the day before V-Day (which he's never done) and chocolate-covered strawberries on V-Day. I think he still likes me!


Keira Addyson - 11 Months

Holy cow! Only 1 more month until Keira is the big ONE! And boy (or girl), has she had a big month. First of all, Keira started walking!!! She started taking a few steps 3-4 weeks ago, but this past week is non-stop and definitely on the move. It's been so fun watching her walk everywhere and try chasing Dylan. This month Keira has also decided to ditch any baby food and only wants the table food that we're eating...and she's very demanding too! She has also decided to start using her sippy cup consistently, yippee!

More great news this month, Keira finally sprouted a tooth! It's still only one, but she finally has one! I've been really cautious about giving her too many table foods since I'm afraid she won't be able to chew and swallow it properly, but so many have told me that the gums are strong enough to do the job and that I need to start her on all varieties of food anyway. But with the one tooth, she's unstoppable now! She has also started signing "more" and saying "ma" when she wants more food. She is also doing more imaginative play lately, such as flying airplanes in the air saying "brr" and giving her baby some goldfish to eat. So cute to watch!
