Kate is the product of two of Ryan & my great friends from our time at Oklahoma State University. Jason and Ryan lived together for 3 0r 4 years, and Emily and I for 2. So, needless to say, they have both been a big part of our lives, and developing the people we are today. As I've mentioned on my personal blog (if you'd like to follow me on a personal level, you can do so at ely here and there), it seems like there has been a mass exodus of our friends from Oklahoma to Dallas. Which, if they were going to abandon me, I suppose I'm glad they're still within driving distance :) Jason & Emily are amongst those who crossed the border.
Last week we attended Kate's 1st birthday party! I can't believe she is already one! It seems like just yesterday I found out that they were expecting, and now she's al growing teeth, and saying words, and crawling around like a mad woman! And she is just so precious. She's got her mommy's big eyes, and her daddy's outgoing personality, so she just smiles and flirts withyou. It's the best.
We happened to have a photoshoot in Dallas that weekend, so I snapped a couple of pics: This is Kate's cousin Kinley. She's a doll, all giggles and smiles, and she's in that toddler stage that she still kind of walks like a monster. That's my favorite.
I love you guys, can't wait until next year! xoxoely
