Where has the time gone? How can my littlest baby girl already be a 1 year old? Thanks to the help of Instagram and #hastags … I was able to keep a month-by-month milestone keepsake for Kensie, which can be found at #KensiesStickerPhotos. It is so special to look back at all of my sweet messages to her and all of her adorable Monthly Sticker Photos, to see how much she has grown in her first twelve months of life.
Here are Kensie’s captured memories… Her Monthly Sticker Photos
[ONE•MONTH] 🖤 In one month you have turned our world into snuggles, smooches and baby talk. Between the little baby noises and your sweet smirks, you have us all wrapped around your finger. You love being wrapped up tightly, chewing on pacifiers and your bottle! We love every detail about you from your wrinkled fingers to your long toes, your sweet demeanor and your scrunchy nose. We all fight over who gets to hold you and admire you when you sleep. Speaking of sleep… While you love yours, we’re missing ours! But even though we are a little sleep deprived (ok, a lot sleep deprived!), we wouldn’t change our new normal for anything! You have completed our family in 4 short weeks and we love you!!!
[TWO•MONTHS] Here’s 2 you, TWO looks good on you! ✌🏻 •• Your ear-to-ear smile is beyond fabulous AND we’ll literally stand on our heads to sneak a smile from you! • We are obsessed with your little coo’s and your desire to chat and you’re giving us every reason to believe you’ll be a full-fledged chatter box in no time! • We all fight for our time to hold you and soak in your sweet snuggles!… and deep down, we all know that I’m your favorite! •• Two months has been a game changer, and we’ve quickly forgotten what life was like before you joined the fun! PS… Thank you for being a great sleeper, we greatly appreciate it!
[THREE•MONTHS] Baby girl, you are a complete joy. You have the sweetest, most calming demeanor and thank goodness you LOVE sleeping! [Eat, sleep, smile… REPEAT!] You wake up and fall asleep with a smile on your face. (AND when you smile… your eyes sparkle – we can’t get enough of it.) You are our little love and everyday is better because of you. 🖤
[FOUR•MONTHS] Kens, you are four months of absolute perfection. Four months of non-stop snuggling. Four months of joy we didn’t know was possible and four months of unconditional love. 🖤 Keep smiling, keep giggling and keep melting our hearts.
[FIVE•MONTHS] and looking better than ever! 🖤 This chunky little girl makes every part of the day happier and sweeter. She is loving her new independence with rolling and she enjoys shrieking out new noises! …She is very proud of herself and her new accomplishments. She smiles at everyone she comes into contact with and knows just how to make you feel special with one sweet smirk.
Kensie girl, or Kiki to her big sisters… (Yes they sing, “🎶 Kiki – Do you love me?!!” to her)… You rock our world! xoxo
[SIX•MONTHS] Happy HALF birthday little one. PS… How is that possible!?! This month you have really found your independence and amazingly enough you get cuter with time. You are so inquisitive and seem to be ready to take on the world by rolling all over the room. You are getting closer to sitting up on your own and by the looks of it, you don’t plan on sitting still for long. You give us the stare-down as we eat so we know you like the thought of food, we just need to work on getting the food to stay in your mouth! You are the most joyful & smiley girl with the BEST baby rolls – Keep ‘em coming!!! 🖤XOXO
[SEVEN•MONTHS] Inquisitive and determined are new qualities that you have shown this month. With your new found sitting and (almost) crawling, you have realized that there is an exciting world going on around you. …AND you want to touch and chew on anything you can grab. You have found your voice and enjoy chatting and making spitting noises – Ha! You are LOVING food, the messier the better, and trying to keep you clean is almost impossible. You took your first cross-country adventure and you were a dream come true traveler – PTL! You have matured so much this month and time is going by too fast! But most importantly, you are still the happiest and smiliest little baby and you make everyone’s heart happy! Love you girl! XOXO
[EIGHT•MONTHS] Helloooo CRAWLING! You love pulling yourself up on anything and everything and in return you have already had quite your share of bumps and bruises. You are determined and excited for what lies ahead. • You LOVE food and happily eat EVERYTHING we put in front of you. We have yet to find something you don’t like! • All you want is to be a BIG girl just like your sisters and don’t worry, at this rate you will be there in no time! • This month has been a holiday adventure for you, and your FIRST Christmas has proven to be a magical time. You especially loved all of the glowing Christmas lights and whenever we couldn’t find you, we knew to look for you under the Christmas tree pulling off the ornaments. Good times! • Love you sweet K! May the new year bring you even more JOY!
[NINE•MONTHS] Sweet K, How are you nine months old? You have two adorable little teeth that add another dimension of cuteness to your smile. Speaking of smiles, yours still lights up the room! You love to hear your voice and you know what you want… FOOD. (You LOVE food!) You are miss independent and you enjoy going on crawling adventures and leaving a messy trail behind you. You are pulling yourself up on everything you can get your hands on, and to be honest, I am a little nervous about you walking soon. Until then, we are soaking up your 9 month old cuteness!
[TEN•MONTHS] Kens!!! 10 months – Girrrrl slow down! No really, please slow down! You have become a busy little baby that only stops to eat and sleep! (Good thing you love both of those, because mama needs some down time.) You are crawling everywhere and getting into everything, but I appreciate your desire to already know the world around you. • You make a scrunchy face whenever you are not content, and it is beyond darling! (Sorry we get amusement out of your unhappiness, but it is too cute!) • Everytime you belly laugh, you get hiccups! (Why are baby hiccups so cute?) • You are smothered with love and adoration from the four of us, and I don’t think that will ever change. (Embrace it girl!) • Love you K! 🖤
[ELEVEN•MONTHS] Kenssssss – How is this possible? I just want to stop time right now and keep you as you are… My vibrant bundle of joy! You continue to bless our family with so many giggles and smiles, and fill our home with more joy than we could have ever imagined! • You are getting more and more mobile these days with crawling and pulling yourself up on everything you can. Take your time with walking – We are in no hurry – wink wink! • You are full of opinions and when your little mind is set on something you don’t give up! You are one tough cookie! • We are going to soak up this birthday month with you – So much excitement ahead! 🖤
[TWELVE•MONTHS] Kensie… My baby, My little love. Today is your day! 1 year and what a year it has been! You have made us smile, giggle and belly laugh more than we could have ever known! You have filled our home with overflowing joy and love. It has been 12 months of constant hugs, kisses, squeezes and honestly non-stop smothering! It is safe to say you are well acclimated to our LOVE! • You are crawling, pulling yourself up on everything, and surprisingly you are a brave climber. I will never forget the day I walked into the kitchen and found you on top of the high top table. YIKES! You will be walking and running in no time, and probably laughing as we chase after you. • You have 4 adorable little teeth and ADORE food. We still haven’t found a food you don’t like. • You have become quite the chatter box and your noises make us laugh constantly! • You have also surprised us all with your inner-dancer abilities! Anytime you hear a musical tune, you are movin-n-groovin!… Music is in your blood and I love it – Get it girl!
Baby girl, you have completed our family perfectly. God knew what He was doing when he blessed us with YOU! You are surrounded by so much love and we all can’t wait to see what’s in store for your future!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY K! I will always be here for you to provide strength, stability, kindness, encouragement, support and love!
Happy 1st Birthday!!! My sweet Kensie what a blessing you are. One year ago, God gave us the most smiley, determined, loving and precious little girl. You have been blessed with the ability to warm every ones heart with your smile, and just like your middle name you are tough as steele! Kensie, I am so excited for your lifetime of milestone moments ahead! Thank you God for making me the mommy to this amazing little girl! 💕
