Kel is 1!

It happened.  I blinked and Kel turned 1. 

She took her first steps.
She stands all by herself.
She points at things and says "dat".
She loves climbing things.
She blows kisses.
She gives high-fives.
I think her eyes are hazel.  
Russ thinks they are brown.
She still loves the water.
She loved watching the seals at the zoo.
She loved spending 5 days with her Kimball cousins.
She smashed her first cake.
She ate her first peanut butter sandwich.
She loves to be outside.  We can't wait for summer!
She's starting to throw little temper tantrums. 
She has 3 teeth on top and 4 on the bottom.
She love to play with friends her own age.
She has the best giggle!

I love my little toddler.  It amazes me how she learns something new everyday.
We are so incredibly blessed to have her here.  I can't imagine what life would be like without her.

She went to St. George for the first time and really enjoyed playing on the grass.

She still puts everything in her mouth, but at least she takes it out now if it isn't food.
Her favorite food is still Salmon.
She likes rice, but only if it's flavored with a yummy sauce.
She can get a spoon from the bowl to her mouth...It usually doesn't have food in it, but it's a start.
