Happy Half Birthday Kaya! 18 Months old!

Kaya 18 Months Old!

My sweet, sweet, Kai Bear! I can't believe how fast time flies when you have kids. I was always worried that having a second child that I wouldn't be able to love her as much as I love my first. That's SO not true. Love definitely multiplied with each child and not divided. You have brought so much love and excitement into our lives. I can't even imagine my life before you...

Your big sissy, KoKo, is so in love with you and I love seeing that beautiful sisterly bond grow more and more every day. You have taught the whole family more about love and the miracle of life. It's also amazing how different you are from your big sister...not just in looks. You are so daring, ready for excitement, love to laugh and are the best snuggle bear in the world! You are also super independent and like to sleep in your own room in your pack n play. We rarely have any problems putting you down for naps or nighttime. 

It's so incredible to watch you find your place in this world. You are so curious about everything and I can see everything you are soaking up in life. You have become Kiyoko's best friend and I can only hope that relationship will grow in a positive way thru your entire lives. Having a sister is the best gift and a friend for life. I want you to know how much you mean to me and how much I love everything about you. I love to sit and stare at you...I love when you snuggle me in the morning and watch movies with me while drinking your bottle in my arms everyday. You still love your paci and blanky, but are doing great when we take it out during the day and love the jibber jabber that you speak. Of course I also love that the only word you really say is, "Mama" :))) You call everyone even call KoKo, Mama!
You are a special soul that transcends time. I am always trying to be the best mom for you and KoKo. I enjoy every minute with you both while I'm at home. I know there will come a day when you go off to school and everything will change. But for now, I am relishing in these moments of bonding, loving and getting to know who you are and can only imagine what you will become.

I promise to always be home for matter where you are later in life. You are my heart and my world. I will do anything for you. You are amazing. Thank you for gracing us with your beautiful presence this last 18 months.
Mommy loves you,
