Happy 2011 !!!
I loved Kim's idea of looking back on the year with a photo a month. And since 2010 was the first year that had our girl with us for the entire year, I thought it would be fitting.

January 2010

I just love how those baby pig-tails stuck straight out.



Wearing the same dress/shirt as in the first picture. This month we celebrated our one year referral anniversary(the 27th) as well as Kerry's second birthday (the 28th).


This month Kerry had her first beach experience. She wasn't too sure about it at first.



My little "collector" had a blast hunting eggs and filling up her basket.



This month we took our first vacation as a family. We went to Ashville, NC and visited the Biltmore Estate and drove the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway and Kerry showed what a great traveler she is...and that she could nearly eat her weight in ice cream over a three day period.


This month we celebrated one year as a family of three (on the 21st).



We took Kerry to Holiday World. She LOVED riding all of the rides and playing in the water park.



Kerry learned to pedal her trike, write her first letters (x, o, and w), and she graduated from her crib to a big girl bed.



This is about the time she started complaining about pains in her legs. And over the next few weeks, she had a big growth spurt to show for it.


This month Kerry started wearing big girl panties during the day, and pull-ups only at naptime and nighttime.

Both of our little girls have done so much growing over the past year. Your Kerry is breathtaking, and I am jealous of your skill at catching it via photos. The light in her eyes is contagious!

I don't know how I missed this post. These pictures are all absolutely gorgeous. Goodness, it's so nice to see the year in pictures like this, because you can see just how much your beautiful Kerry Lu has grown and developed.

What a blessed Mama you are!
