my baby's no baby.

Today, my sweet little Kayleigh turns seven years old. She was born on Tuesday, June 5th, at 6:43 p.m. in Fort Smith Arkansas. (After 2 epidurals...)but I digress.

I've gone through all the ropes with her. Bedtime (she slept in our bed until 18 months), tantrums (she didn't have many but when she did, whoa), walking, talking, eating, and, of course, potty training. She taught me how to be a mom.
When I was a first time mom with her, Baxter was busy with school about 50 hours a week, so she was my only real companion during that stage of our life. This little munchkin with these dark, wise, eyes that could always make me feel like I was worth something. We'd stay up late (I'd be watching movies, and she'd be watching me), then we'd sleep late. (this girl is a good sleeper). She rarely left my side. Those moments seem so far away, but I can recall them like they were just an hour ago.

She's my super smart, sensitive, curious, intuitive, talkative, sassy, girl. I think out of all the girls personality, she's got me down. I'm proud to be her mom. I can't wait to see what the next seven years will be like, and I can't believe that she'll be 14 when those next seven are over...

Happy Birthday Kayles!
