March of Dimes Walk 2010

K and Mommy about to head to the
March of Dimes Walk 2010.

Hanging out in the stroller, getting ready to GO!

Begging for a snack afterwards.

K and one of her BFFs, Payton

April 17th was the March of Dimes walk. I walked with friends and co-teachers to honor the Keith family who lost their little girl, Kylie, to the devastating disease of Necrotizing Enterocolitis. Our team raised over $8000.00 for the March of Dimes Cause! The morning was great and K slept 3 out of the 4 miles. Then, she sang and said "hi" to everyone we passed. I can't wait to walk/jog again next year!

Going, going, gone!

K has been teetering around a little bit here and there for the past few weeks. With each passing day, her confidence builds and she takes a few more steps. She is able to stand on her own and even bend down to get things without toppling over and without holding onto something now. Just thought I'd share how fast she's growing for those of you who haven't seen her in a while.

Now, are there any suggestions on how to make her stop growing or at least slow down the process??? ;)

Bunnies, eggs, and ice cream...

Last Easter was well...okay, so I don't remember much (K was only 2 weeks or so old and at that point, I was running on fumes I'm sure).
However, this Easter was great! There was lots of good food, wonderful time with the family, and all sorts of fun things this year. Even though our egg hunt was rained out, K still loved all the eggs, bunnies, and treats that she found around our house, in the yard, and at Aunt Cort's. On top of all that, she was introduced to a few new things this year like chalk, chocolate, and G-da's famous homemade vanilla ice cream.
She didn't want to be picked up for a picture again.
She was fussing at us for interrupting her chalk time!

Ice Cream...


Daddy and K

Caeson "teaching" K not to eat the chalk, but to draw with it. ;)

Kissing her piggy egg-She absolutely loved them! Thanks Mrs. Patti!

Looking for more eggs in her bean bag chair.

Showing Daddy her kitty cat eggs. :)

K's 1st Birthday Celebration!!!

Beat from the long day! Just relaxing on her new princess couch/sleeper.

One last slide before bath time and bed

All her toys

"Yuck! Not this stuff again!"

Besides those two fingers that grazed the top of the cake, she didn't touch it this time around. I think she remembered the cake from her 1 year picture session.

All my little helpers during gift time ;)

The drink table (and my dad...supervising)

The kid table

Yes, the birthday girl is taking off her shoes and socks!
Why do I even bother dressing her!?

The big cake

K's cake

The food table

She woke up that morning ready to go, so we showed her one of her presents-the Princess Coupe Car. She immediately went over it to and said "wow." She loved it! We pushed her around while she had her morning cup of milk. Talk about spoiled!

Her birthday party was a BIG success! She had many friends and family members come to show their love and join the celebration of her first year. The food was great, the kids played well, and we made it through without any tears (neither one of us ;) he, he). She really didn't know what to think about all the people around her, but I have to say, she didn't seem to mind and enjoyed the extra attention! She wasn't sure about us singing to her and looked at us as if we had lost our minds, but all in all, I think she enjoyed the serenade. :)
