6 years ago today...


Our first baby was born! There is nothing more exciting or special than having that first baby. After 25 hours of labor, 3 hours of pushing, and vacuuming her out....Rylee Kendall was born. She is an amazing, bright, creative, responsible and organized girl. Some of her favorite things are: writing, making lists, making chore charts, organizing her money, shopping, and eating Ramen noodles. She is incredibly driven and I can't wait to see what the future holds for her. In fact, in talking about how we will handle buying cars for 3 kids, Todd came up with a plan that he will match whatever they save for their first car. Then he said "Let's not tell Rylee, she'll start saving now and I'll have to buy her a Bentley." It's true, she is one motivated kiddo! Rylee is the kiddo that asked me one day on the way home from preschool (when she was barely 3) "why do kids even bother coming to school and coloring if they can't stay in the lines?" Affectionate, caring, and sweet as can be, we are humbled that she is ours!

Happy 6th Birthday, Big Girl!

Such pretty pictures! Happy birthday Rylee!! Your description of her is nearly spot on with Kate. I can't tell you how many lists I find lying around the house regarding her activities. She, too saves her money (unlike Jack), because she's saving for college, but has her sights on earning a scholarship so that she can keep her money! It's pretty amazing how these kids think.

Happy Birthday Rylee! I can't believe it has been 6 years. Rylee is like a grown up in a little girls body.
