Celebrate Kaya!

Today we are celebrating the birthday of our firstborn, Kaya Grace Gregoire.  We love you sweet girl! 

How our lives have changed since that day eight years ago!  We had been down in Maryland visiting my parent's Bayhouse for Labor Day weekend when my water broke in the middle of the night.  After double (and triple!!) checking, and a quick phonecall to my OB, we were off and headed 2 1/2 hours back home to the hospital.  We did make it, with hardly even a contraction! 

Due to a condition that Kaya was born with, called craniosynostosis, I required an emergency c-section.  Five hours later though, the sweetest, most thoughtful little girl was welcomed into our family.  What an absolute treasure she was (and is) too!   Kaya loves to dance.  She loves dolls and babies (real ones!!) and she loves all things girly.  LOVE that about her!!  Here is a look back at the last eight years.

For about a year, this is the outfit that our very own little Cinderella donned everyday. :)

Beautiful girl.

She's three!!!

Sugar and spice and everything nice...

Kaya has always been a natural big-sister to all her siblings. 

Celebrating with family tonight.  Happy birthday sweet Kaya!!

We've been through major surgery together, a broken foot and E.R. visits.  But we would do it all again in a heartbeat.  So, so, so thankful to have such a precious gift for a daughter.  We consider it an absolute honor that God chose us to be your mommy and daddy.  We look forward to watching you grow into the beautiful woman God has created you to be.  We love you Kaya!!

Love, Mommy
