Kayley Turns Three!!!

Kayley turned 3 on June 9th.  On the one hand, the NICU seems like a lifetime ago, but on the other hand, it seems like just yesterday.  Kayley has come so far since that scary day 3 years ago!  Thank you again to Phoenix Children's Hospital and all of the great doctors and nurses who cared for our 27 weeker!  I will give an update on her development next week after her 3 year check-up.  Tonight, I am focusing on my first attempt to upload videos (especially for Auntie Mo!).

Kayley got to celebrate her birthday twice - once with Andy's family over Memorial Day weekend and this past weekend with my family and Andy's dad.  The fact that Kayley got two birthday cakes did not go unnoticed by Drew.  He was quick to point out that he only got 1 birthday cake! 

Here are a few pictures from Kayley's birthday in Omaha:





Here are a few pictures from Kayley's birthday on the farm:





Finally!  A camera just like cousin JD's!
Now for a few videos.  In the first video, we were encouraging the kids to get into the pool even though the water was FREEZING.

Singing Kayley Happy Birthday (please excuse the singing!).  As you will see, Kayley got a little distracted!

Kayley getting ready to eat her birthday cake.  She refers to her birthday cake as her "birthday" all the time.  When you ask her what she wants for her birthday, her reply is that she wants candles!

After Kayley opened her gifts, she went around and gave everyone a hug.  Andy was videotaping and I was trying to take pictures with the camera.  I was having trouble with the camera so we kept having the kids hug and this was the result!
