Lynlee's Birthday Party Day!

(Lynlee in her party dress)

On Sunday we had Lynlee's birthday party. It was a much needed day after the week we've had (another blog will follow soon about details.) We are so blessed to have such amazing family and friends!

Like always, Lynlee loved having all the attention. She went from table to table, person to person and loved every minute of it.

She had a couple little friends there to play with :)

She only got scared singing Happy Birthday, but she held it together. She wasn't to sure about the cake, but did her fair share of playing it in.

My only regret of the day: I didn't get many pictures :(

Now to find places for all the birthday gifts, I think we need a bigger house.

Happy Birthday Lynlee

Dear Lynlee,

Happy Birthday Baby Girl! I can't believe that you are one today! I can't believe we have a year behind us. It seems like just yesterday I held you in my arms for the first time.

I knew I loved you before I met you, but I never knew I would love you this much. I never knew it was possible to love someone this much.

There were days this past year that made me unsure if we would see this birthday. There were doctors that said we wouldn't. I thank God everyday that they were wrong. I thank him that you proved them wrong.

You've been through more things in your first twelve months that some people have been through in a lifetime. You've been through Kidney Dialysis, Four surgeries, been inhabited 6 times, and so much more with all the blood work etc. I knew you would be strong minded, but I never knew you would be this strong, or have to be this strong!

I'm so sorry you have to go through all of this. I pray every night that it will change, but it's part of God's plan. and if I know anything it's that he has BIG plans for you! If he didn't we wouldn't have made it this far.

You've changed so many peoples lives since you've came into this world. I know you've changed mine! You've made me a better person. You showed how strong I can be when I needed to be. You've taught me faith and hope. Because of you I know what matters most now.

I want you to know there is nothing in this world that I would not do for you!

I love you so much! I'm so lucky and so proud to have you as my daughter!

Happy Birthday Baby,

Festival 2010

Yesterday afternoon Lynlee and I were going for a walk. We decided it was to nice of a day for her to do her 2pm feed inside and we have to get all the warm weather in that we can. Fall is here and winter is coming!

As we were walking down the road, talking about the cars going by, and the few people that we saw it was hard to believe that was the same town we saw just a few days ago. The hundreds of people walking the streets were gone. The carnival rides and stands were being loaded, and even all the food stands gone.

I'm like most of this town that looks forward to the festival. I was extra excited for this year to be Lynlee's first one. She loved it. She is way to social not to. She loved to ride in her stroller and watch the people, and the lights.

Lynlee went on her first carousel ride. Like most things, I was more excited about it than she was. But she rode. She never cried! She acted like she'd been doing it her whole life.

But again, like most people in this town, I'm glad when it's all over. It's hard on our wallets and our waistlines. (HAHA)

Till next year........

Our First Family Vacation

Well Lynlee survived, in fact loved her first real vacation. Last Sunday we packed up and headed toward Ocean City, MD. The first day we just went half way because we know how tired Lynlee gets of driving and I didn't want to wear her out her first day. We found a Hampton and called it a night!

Monday morning we packed up and headed the rest of the way. The view from the condo was amazing. The weather was not. In fact, it rained 4 out of the 5 days we were there and the day it didn't rain the wind was to strong to enjoy the beach.

We kept our self busy, but doing lots of shopping, eating, and swimming in the pool. Swimming was Lynlee's favorite by far! We played a little putt-putt, and did a lot of relaxing. On most days Lynlee was so excited she didn't want to nap. Naps were few and far between.

It was a much needed vacation with no worries.
