One year ago today I became a mommy of 2! Growing up I always dreamed of having baby girl and God granted me this wish. Kylie Rose entered this world on September 9, 2009 at 7:32 am weighing 10 lbs and was 20 inches long. Words cannot express how happy we were that she was a happy and healthy baby.

It was a planned C-Section so we knew exactly when she would arrive. It was so surreal walking into the operating room, knowing what was about to happen. I was so relaxed, yet nervous, scared and overjoyed.

I was HUGE and very ready to have this baby. As every expecting mother knows, it is very uncomfortable the last few weeks and since it was in the dead of summer, I WAS READY!

After a very successful delivery, everyone starting coming in and meeting baby Kylie. She really didn't look like a baby, more like a 6 month old baby. Everyone said she looked like me which made me SO happy since Blake looked EXACTLY like Aaron.

In the back of my mind, I kept thinking about Blake meeting her and how young he was...Would he love her? Would he accept this new baby in our home? Would he even understand? He was only 16 months old - a baby himself.

Blake was so cute with her. I don't think he knew she was coming home with us, but he was giving her kisses and touching her face.

Kylie was a great baby. She did great with her feedings and sleep for long periods of time. We even had to wake her up to feed her many times!

Kylie continued to sleep through the night from one month old. And big brother Blake did too. We have been very lucky here....both kids sleeping through the night from one month old. Can't get any easier!

Here are some updates for Kylie:

-You are such a big girl! You weigh about 25-27 lbs (just guessing) and you are pretty tall (we go to see Dr. Pringle on the 13th for an official check-up)

-You love your big brother! You love to cuddle with each other (only when you are in the mood!)

-You are almost walking! You can walk with your new stroller you got for your birthday and you are cruising everywhere. Almost there!!!

-You love your milk! You use to sneak and drink some of Blake's before you moved to whole milk and you loved it!

-You also love your paci :)

-You wear a size 4 diaper and 12-18 month clothes

-You are a very fast crawler :)

-You LOVE to sleep! We have to fight to keep you up until 7:30pm some times. However there are other nights you are you until 8:30 or so

-You still take two good naps everyday, each at least two hours

-You love to swing on the swingset with Blake

-You really don't have a favorite toy, however you are starting to love your baby dolls

Mommy and Daddy love you so much and this past year has flown by. You are growing up to be such a beautiful, sweet baby girl!
