SEVEN – Happy 7th Birthday Kaila

Seven years ago Kaila joined us at 9:39 PM weighting 6 pounds 2.5 ounces, she was 20 inches long. The moment the doctors placed her on my bare skin I knew I was a changed person. The moment I laid eyes on her I was in love, she is the most amazing thing I have done. I look at her now 7 years later and am so proud of the girl she has become.

She loves:

  • her friends and family
  • reading
  • math
  • animals
  • dinosaurs
  • Lego’s

She’s good at anything she does. When she puts her all into something she succeeds far beyond her capabilities. She’s really smart, and even more so caring. She likes clothes and doesn’t mind rolling in the dirt. She wants to be a paleontologist when she grows up and can almost spell it on her own. She reads at the level of an almost 3rd grader and is advanced in all areas in school. She’s my polar opposite yet she has a heart just like mine.


I love you with all of my heart my sweet child. You’re the best big sister anyone can ask for. You’re kind and patient, you always go out of your way to help your sister and your friends. You’re the best 7 year old any mom could ask for. I am so proud of you on this day and every other day. I promise this year to let you be you more. I promise to guide you and be more understanding. I promise to give you the special time that you deserve.

I love you babe.

    Happy Birthday my sweet and very first niece! I still remember you calling me after Kaila was born. I believe I was in the bathroom puking because I was pregnant with Sarah.

      I remember that. I was laying on my side talking to you. I’ll never forget it.

    It’s so hard to believe she’s seven but I guess it makes sense since Roo just turned eight… time does go by so fast once you start having kids! I love seeing her grow up all in one post. What a sweet girl she is.
