A birthday??..... Already??????

That is right... Today is my baby´s 7th birthday and I just don´t know how that even happened.

I still remember her like she was the day we brought her from the hospital. All 6 lb 15oz 20inch long, beautiful lots of dark hair, brown eyes beautiful Kayla Pilar.



I remember me holding her in my arms and not believing why such a great wonderful blessing was given to me. Then it was time to feed her and I realized there is not such a thing as perfection :). She wouldn´t eat, she would just want to sleep. And me, as the new mommy I was, I wanted to feed her like she was suppossed to, but this little one just wasn´t interested. I got lots of milk and a baby who didn´t need much.... and we all know that hurts :) But she was great otherwise, alert, sweet, and didn´t cry much.


Since she was little she always had a smile in her face and a big alert eyes that wanted to discover everything around her. And she had a mommy and daddy that couldn´t get enough of her. She was sweet already then, and everyone around her just couldn´t help it but fall in love with her.

Kayla is just a great girl. She has a sweet kind spirit. A soft heart that never needs much discipline because, her just knowing that she did something you don´t like, is enough discipline for her. She is a great big sister, very protective of her two younger sisters. She now even helps with Noelia´s clothes if I need her to help me out. She loves helping out, especially in the kitchen.


She is also such a smart girl. When we came to Spain she didn´t know any spanish, but in no time she picked it up, and right away she became so fluent you couldn´t guess spanish wasn´t her language by birth. She gets great grades in school and has lots of friends because she is such a friendly girl.


I just can´t believe she is already 7. 7 is not a little girl´s age, 7 is a girl´s age.... and I just don´t like it!¨:) She tells me she will always be my little baby, and that even when she is a teenager she is going to let me hug on her and kiss her and call her little baby..... would she remember when she is a teenager?.... I actually think so, she is just that sweet.

Today daddy took her to school. She was so excited. They were a little late, he tells me, and Kayla wanted daddy to take her to the classroom. They saw one of her friends picking out the door of her class and they heard her say ¨sshhhh, she is coming¨. When they opened the door everyone started singing Happy Birthday and they all came running to give her a hug. I wish Matthew had a camera then. I am sure that was super special to her.


After all these photos of her as a baby is so amazing to think she is now a beautiful 7 year old. Where all the time go? I need to make a point to enjoy every second or before I know it I will be writting about her 14th birthday.... Okay I don´t want to think about it----


HAPPY BIRTHDAY KAYLA. MOMMY LOVES YOU SO MUCH!!!!

This is a beautiful post about your 7 year old's birthday. I have a daughter much like her, she was always a good child, she got in trouble when she was in early school for smiling. She is 22 now and time does fly so enjoy this time.

Happy birthday Kayla! Ally sent a video message earlier today. Sorry that we didn't catch y'all before the girls' bedtime. Seven hours difference in time is hard to work with sometimes. :) We love and miss you all!
