Gosh, I can't believe we have made it to a year--somewhat intact! The girls turned one year old today, technically they are adjusted 9-months old right now but today will always be their birthday. We celebrated their birthday on Sunday with family and it was pretty funny to watch them dig into their chocolate cake. Mckenna and Madison made a major mess and Madison ingested the majority of her cake, but Carly just kinda put a few fingers in it and then had no interest. She didn't even want to eat it when I gave her a broken off piece. She must not like to get dirty.... funny. Where the other two, the dirtier the better. I got my camera out for the pictures but it died right before I was taking the pictures. Luckily my mil got some pictures but I will have to wait a few weeks to get them and share them.... so just imagine chocolate cake everywhere.
I also was looking at pictures a year ago when the girls were born and had to have a look back. They have come so far and are doing so well. Madison is crawling everywhere and sitting up on her own as well as cruising the furniture. I'm sure she will be running before I know it. Mckenna and Carly are both just starting to crawl around (army crawl) and are loving that they can move around like their sister.
Sorry the pictures I took today aren't the best. We are painting the exterior of our house this week and so I pretty much ran in, took a picture and ran back out to keep painting (pictures will follow of the change in house color). Don't worry, I'm not leaving the girls alone, their Grandma is over from Wyoming to watch them for the week for us so we can get the house painted quickly. Next week I should have time to get some decent pictures of them at a year old.
So Happy Birthday girls. We love you so much and are so thrilled that you are in our family. We know Heavenly Father wanted you to be in our family and your Dad and Mom have been so blessed to have you in our lives! We love you! You are truly our miracle babies!
Mckenna- 1 day old
