Kylie's birthday party

Hello from Tennessee!

We flew to TN on Thursday which was Kylie's birthday. Kylie had healed from all of her hives by Wednesday night--thank goodness!! It was a 4 1/2 hour flight to Atlanta and then a 4 hour drive (including some stops) to Knoxville. Kylie was fussy at times but overall, she was a trooper. For the flight, I had carefully chosen some of her favorite toys and hidden them for a few days. This strategy worked but Kylie's favorite thing to play with on the plane was the barf bag--go figure.

We rested and played with Granna on Friday.

And today was Kylie's birthday party. She wore a beautiful party dress and we had a special blessing ceremony (I'll write more about that later) but then it was time for cake!

These pictures are straight from the camera and need a bit of color adjustment but I wanted to go ahead and share them with you. How cute is this!

Kylie loved her first taste of cake.

And loved rubbing it on her mommies' faces even more. (Kylie got some on Karen's face near her temple.)

There are more pictures of family and friends here.

I want to share more with you about how very special this day was but for right now, I simply must lay down and put my feet up. It's been crazy these last few days.

Looks like she had a wonderful birthday party. Kylie is the sweetest baby and so darn cute. I love her smile and blond curls.

P.S. I can't believe it's already been a year since she was born.
