This is my sweet, little niece, Kailyn. Doesn't she look so sweet and precious sleeping? I took this photo of her on her first birthday, August, 4, 2007.
Right after she was born we went up to VA to see her. In the following months after that, her mom and dad came home for a few weeks so I felt like I got to see her so much. It was weird for me to have so much contact with a baby that I love so much. The last time I spent that much time with a little one was when my brother and sister were babies (they are 18 and 20 now). To be honest, it made me get baby fever a little bit. I felt like I bonded with Kailyn instantly. I was so excited to know Ashley was going to be having her. She is such a gorgeous baby! I will have to admit I took it kind of hard when they came home for her 1st birthday only because I was so use to being able to hold and snuggle with Kailyn from before. Well....now she was one, and she hadn't seen me in like 6 months....basically I was a stranger : ( She warmed up to me a little bit before they left. She really only wanted to be touched by her moma and no one else. So I am writing this basically because I am really excited to say that Ashley, Brian, and Kailyn will be moving home after the first of the year. I am really looking forward and hoping that I can get Kailyn to feel more comfortable with me again. I can't wait!!!!
