What I think

I see us in a couple of levels.  I see matching hair, similar cheekbones, but when I look at my daughter I see Crawford.  Maybe because when I look at Kota I see Steigerwalt.  I respect the other opinions though.

As she ages I guess she is becoming more like her mama.  Her sass and attitude is so like her father!  Kayla has been a light in my life since I knew I was having a girl.  I was so scared to be pregnant again when I had a 9 month old colicy baby boy.  I was actually very depressed.  The day I had the ultrasound that told me I was having a girl, all my sadness of being pregnant were gone.

She was a very easy, happy baby.  She loved being snuggled.  She was my sweet pea.  She used to sing even as a baby.  She often brings smiles to my face.  As she is growing and maturing into a beautiful young woman, she still brings a smile to my face.  She is spunky, energetic, she has this truly sweet spirit.

My daughter is everything that I am not.  Maybe that's why she does not look like me when I look in the mirror.  I see a person who I would like to be when I grow up!


  1. such a sweet post. nice tribute to your daughter.

  2. What a nice post!! I'm sure your daughter will really enjoy it. I felt the same way having a girl after two boys!

  3. This is a post that Kayla will love when she's older, and you will need to read everyday when she's more into the teenage years! She is a cutie and I think she has such a great personality, full of spit and vinegar! You're right, she's Kyle in a dress!

  4. That post brought tears to my eyes! I also love having a daughter and the feelings you have for Kayla are feelings I can relate to with Stella.

  5. What a beautiful post. It's great that you have this blog to record your feelings and family fun, it will be amazing for your children and grandchildren in the years to come. Glad you are enjoying my kangaroo stories and also pleased you don't see them hopping down the street in Ohio, or I'd be worried about what you were drinking!

  6. What a sweet post! I think you and your daughter look so much alike!! What a great picture...I hope you have this one framed. Thanks for the shoutout! Did you take any pictures of your rice krispy treats?!
