Happy 12 months, Tiny Bird!

We had a wonderful birthday celebration for Miss Keira on Saturday.  We were so lucky to have family and friends with us to celebrate that special day in a child's (and parent's) life.  The anniversary commemorates one of the most significant days in our lives: the day we brought Kiki into the world.  A first birthday is the opportunity for family and friends to show her their love and support as she reaches that milestone of turning from baby to toddler.

She has definitely shown us that she is no longer a baby... and entering toddlerhood.  Her favorite activity is walking with the help of two adult hands.  She loves to smile and show off her four teeth.  She is babbling...mostly "bah's" but other sounds are popping up here and there.  She points at birds and flowers and toys she wants to touch.  She waves good-bye.  And she has eyes only for her Mom and Dad when we are in sight.

I thought it would be fun to display her monthly photos to demonstrate how quickly time passes and how a newborn turns to infant and toddler in the blink of an eye.
