Recapping ~ Day 16

So I thought it would be a fun idea to kinda "recap" the first 15 months of Kensi's life. Mostly for those of you following along that don't know me. I thought also it would be neat to see how much she has changed since the day she came into this world and changed my life forever. For the better. Here she is. Brand new. She was born August 24, 2007 @ 6:31 pm. She was 3 weeks and 2 days early! A big surprise to mommy and daddy! She weighed just 5 lbs 13 oz and was 19 inches long. I now believe in love @ first sight!

Here she is @ around 2 1/2 months old. During this photo shoot she pooped on the blanket....AND on the photographer! Whoops!

5 1/2 months old and sitting up on her own! She did so wonderful @ this photo shoot. While she doesn't always love pictures when mommy is taking them, she does alright for the professionals.

And now we have standing!! She was so so proud of herself in this picture! She was around 8 1/2 months old here. During this sitting we also had our first ever professional family picture taken. If you look closely you can see the sweet little bracelet my best friend Stephanie got Kensi for her first Christmas. She definitely can't wear that bracelet now unfortunately. She would break it in seconds.

Here is our big girl @ 1 year old! This is the outfit she wore for her ladybug birthday party. You can't see it in this picture, but it has a really cute lady bug on the left front side. Her party was a blast, even though mommy was sooo sick! Once again, my little girl hamming it up for the professional photographer!

And last but not least, our most recent professional pictures were done @ Christmas time. She was just about 15 months here. Not quite, but close enough. I LOVE this picture of her. Probably one of my favorites. The dress was a gift from my mother in law. In all the other photos the photographer had her standing or sitting in a chair or sleigh. I suggested this shot. I wanted one of her just sitting and the dress spread out all around her. I think she looks so beautiful. She really is a natural @ getting her photo taken. See her hands? She did that all by herself!


  1. Those pics are awesome! Great memories to cherish! :)

  2. Now you can see why I call her my Little Miss Sunshine. She smiles all the time. Mommaw isn't prejudice either. :)
