Happy Birthday Kendyl Babe!

Yesterday was Kendyl's first birthday. Our baby is 1!! She has been walking a little for a couple weeks now and I was hoping she'd be full force by her birthday, BUT, she'd rather crawl- it's faster. We love having this little nugget at our house (even though she's our little destructicon lately). She always has the biggest smile on her face and does the funniest little things. She has CRAZY amounts of energy and NEVER holds still. This little monkey went to Kangaroo Zoo last week and climbed most of the way up the ladder by herself- always looking for a good time :) She's pathetically small for her age but I love it, seeing as I don't want her to grow up. She sleeps through the night from 8-8. Her favorite foods are jam sandwiches, cheese, and lately candy canes. Yep, she pulls them off the tree, cracks them in half and sucks on them. She's got 4 little teeth- 2 on top & 2 on bottom. She LOVES to play peek-a-boo if there's any kind of an obstacle she can hide behind. She always has a little toy in her mouth, but spits them into her hand when I tell her to. She hates wearing socks and usually has them off within seconds of getting them on.

Our families love Kendyl too and were nice enough to spend their Saturday nights at her party. Even Tanner was here from Idaho! She got some really cute stuff including a homemade duck toy from Daddy. It's rubber feet slap the floor when it's pushed. Yes, Nic is much more talented than his mate- that's why it was essential I married him ;) Nic and I also joined forces to create this doggy cake. He made the little fondant dogs (notice the little dog "accessories" he added), and I did the cake. Kendyl LOVES dogs- and this cake was no exception. She wanted to be RIGHT by that cake all night. I think she liked eating it even more. Overall it was a fun night. The cousins are always wild when they're together but it's cute how much they love eachother. And we can't wait for Tammy to have her baby GIRL so there can be one more princess! Happy Birthday Baby! You're one of the coolest people I know :)

Seriously, you guys should look into doing that professionally. It was your very first time, imagine what you could do with a little practice!
Love you Kendyl, you're the cutest 1 year old we know!
