HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY


We celebrated Kelsi's 1st bday today. She must have known that today was a special day because she was SO happy all day long. What a nice gift to give to her mother!

Kelsi dived right into her cake and especially loved the frosting. She was on a sugar high all afternoon/evening. It was pretty funny. She could not hold still and was just going all over the house.


One of Kelsi's gifts was a ball popper. She wasn't so sure about it at first, but she is really getting the idea!




Kelsi loved the wrapping paper. She finally has some toys!!! YAY! She also got some fun books from Grandma and Grandpa Manderino (she says thanks!!!)



This was one of Kelsi's "sugar lows". She would be crawling like crazy and then just stop and lay down for a few seconds.


We can't believe that it has already been a year since Kelsi brightened our lives and joined our family. We are so thankful for her. She has brought more joy into our lives than we could have ever imagined. We love you, Kelsi!

I loved that she crashed on the cool tile floor. She is one amazing little girl.

Awww, Happy Birthday Kelsi! She is so so cute! Those ball poppers are the best. I haven't met a kid yet who doesn't like them. I love when babies just have to lay down and rest for a minute. I think adults should do it more often.
