Kayla is now 10 years old! It doesn't seem possible that just over 10 years ago - Phil and I were at the hospital patiently waiting her arrival. Amazed at how alert she was just in her first few days of life. Watching her first steps, saying her first words, spelling her last name at 2 years old, doing ballet, tap and jazz, starting Kindergarden, and excelling in gymnastics. She really is turning into a smart, loving and beautiful young lady.
While we still have another party this next weekend (sleepover and skating) Kayla still had a memorable day. It started out at 2:30 in the morning with her getting sick - although since she wasn't yet 10 (that occured at 7:36 CT) it was her last illness as a nine year old. She woke up feeling much better and gobbled down 4 cinnamon rolls. Then it was off to church and then a breakfast lunch at the Orient Garden in Suwannee (chinese buffett at its finest). We came home and opened presents (a new DS game and crocs - she already received a bike). Kayla left for a few hours to play with her BFF Madison after having some cake with them.
We finally ended the day of celebration with ice cream cake and pot roast (in that order and the requested dinner was hers) while watching Pirates of the Carribean - Dead Man's Chest on USA Network.
According to Kayla she is no longer a child but a preteen. Happy Birthday Sweetheart! We love you!
