Not flesh of my flesh, Nor bone of my bone,

But still miraculously my own.

Never forget for a single minute,

You didn't grow under my heart--but in it.

--Fleur Conkling Heylinger

I didn't give you the gift of life,

But in my heart I know

The love I feel is deep and real

As if it had been so.

For us to have each other

Is like a dream come true!

No, I didn't give you the gift of life,

Life gave me the gift of you.

Summer Fun!

The past several months have been busy with fun events!  Kinley is really blossoming, and teaching us love and lessons every single minute.  We squeezed a ton of activities in this summer, including parades, parties, going to the lake and lighthouse, a week at the fair, the zoo, camping, swimming, a trip to Chicago, and much more!  Kinley is a trooper and adapts quickly to all her surroundings.  She has fun in the big city, and feels right at home on her Grandpa's farm chasing the kittys and throwing food to the goats and pigs. 

Kinley is growing up way too fast!  She runs from place to place, tries to jump, tries to do somersaults, knows how to do "Head, shoulders, knees, and toes", Pattycake, ring around the rosie, If you're happy and you know it, etc.  She even tries to sing the song as she does it!  Her language is amazing.....she speaks 3 and 4 word sentences, and she knows many signs and uses them to get everyone's attention.  She loves music and dances and shakes her "bupp", lol.  Kinley also likes to get our attention by yelling "mommy!"  or "daddy!", and will continue to yell it until you respond.

She has recently discovered Sponge Bob Squarepants and Dora.  It will keep her attention for a bit, but soon she's running around looking for something to get in to.  She loves her best buddy Brayson, and screams and laughs when she sees him.  She calls him "Bubba" or "Bubby", and gives him hugs and kisses. 

We continue to be thankful for all of our blessings, especially this loving, bright, giggly little girl.  Mommy and Daddy love you SO MUCH Kinley Jade!
