Kenzie's First Birthday

After her dedication, we did a family party for Kenzie's first birthday. As you can see, we are surrounded by a lot of family, which is a huge blessing. Kenzie was fairly dainty with the cake. She never dug in too much. Food was Mexican. As tradition in our family, we planted a tree for Kenzie. We chose a Stellata Magnolia.
Kenzie is a fabulous baby. She definately knows what she wants and can easily communicate that. She is a pretty easy baby getting a bit needy in the afternoon, but I know I have nothing to complain about. She is talking more now with her own version of bye, hi, ball, backpack, hot, mama, dada, thank you and more. She can do some sign language (more, all done, please). She is a pickier eater - loving fruit but not willing to try a lot. We're just finishing up on the formula and will be moving to a combination of rice and whole milk. She's starting to want to walk everywhere, although crawling still in the easiest and fastest way to get around. She can go up and down the stairs with ease, but I still want to follow close behind. She knows how to clap, kiss, high five and wave on command, but she likes to do it on her own terms. Abigail, tickles and surprises always make her laugh. She likes babies, books and balls. She is very adaptable and a good sleeper. Her first year has flown by, and we just adore her.
