.twelve months.

The last sticker.  Bittersweet...she's no longer a baby baby.   She's a walking, talking, crazy one year old.

.kaiya's first birthday.

Little Miss Kaiya turned ONE on September 14.  As a special treat, Papa Dave flew in from New Mexico to celebrate!  Kaiya was treated extra special on her birthday and got to wear a special pink tutu and a funny looking headband that mommy bought for her.  Everyone thought she was the cutest thing with her headband on when we made a quick trip to Costco.
After picking up Papa Dave from the airport, we headed to a special birthday for Duke's!  Her first birthday dinner was a kid's chicken strips w/french fries, which she refused to eat, of course.  :)  She did love the dinner rolls and muffins from the Salad Bar, though.  
 And since it was her birthday, our server brought her a Hula Pie!!!  She had a few bites, and loved it....but was nice enough to share her birthday pie with everyone else at the table.

After dinner, Kaiya was surprised with ANOTHER cake at Papa Harry and Grandma Barbara's house.  Mommy and daddy bought her a Chocolate Dream Cake from Kauai Bakery...not knowing that she was going to get a Hula Pie at Duke's.  (Who gives that HUGE piece of Hula Pie to a one year old?...I guess Duke's does.)  The only difference was we let Kaiya demolish the cake and dive in all by herself.  No sharing, it was ALL hers!  At first, she was a little skeptical, but after a minute or so she couldn't stop indulging and it was everywhere.  
And although she won't remember this day, mommy and daddy sure will.  I think it's successful to say that Kaiya had a great first birthday...little did she know that she had a first birthday party coming up later on in the week, too!

So I just realized that I haven't updated Kaiya's blog in TWO months! Yikes! I thought I did, but I guess not. The pictures are ready on my computer, though. I guess all I can do now is let you know what you can expect to see.

Kaiya turned the big ONE! She had a great birthday at Salt Pond complete with Hello Kitty theme and Mexican Bar menu. Grandpa Dave and Uncle Dennis (daddy's best man at the wedding) came to Kauai to help celebrate and we had a fabulous time.

We also went on a family trip to California and visited THE Happiest Place on Earth, not one but two days! Grandma Barbara and Papa Harry, Aunty Dawn and Uncle Wes, Kaytin and Caleb, and Grandma Barb were ALL there. We got to see a lot of family while we were there too! Sooo much fun, and a definite must do again. Did I mention that Kaytin had no idea we were going in a trip until we left for the airport...and didn't know about Disneyland until the bus ride over. That was quite the secret to keep from her. Luckily she can't quite read big words yet cause Disneyland was plastered all over the hotel! Haha.

Kaiya got to go trick or treating for the first time. Last year she was only a few weeks old and was asleep by the time we got to Uncle Matt and Aunty Shannon's...which is right up the driveway. But she looked amazingly cute in her costume that mommy put together at the last minute. More on that later.

I'm sure there's a lot more happenings that went on but since I don't have the computer handy or the camera to see what pictures are on there, this update will have to do for now. You can also look forward to the beginning of Kaiya's (and mommy and daddy's) adventures in potty training! Ahhhhhhh!!! Wish us all luck, but since the munchkin is constantly saying 'doo doo' 'doo doo' 'doo doo'...we thought we'd take an attempt. Alright...until the next update...with pics, I promise...have a fabulous day! BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging.
