Happy 6th Birthday, Rainbow Baby!!

My Rainbow baby, my miracle child, the one I was not sure I would ever have, turned 6 years old today!! It's been an amazing and wonderful 6 years, too. She has brought such love and joy into our family and into our home. She is such a loving, giving and cheerful spirit and I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father for blessing us with her.

 She is a bit of a goofball, but you might not know that unless you spend a lot of time with her. She tends to be very quiet and reserved around those she doesn't know well, but once she loves you...that's it! She loves with her whole heart and soul. And if you're really lucky, she will decide that you are one of "her girls" and will constantly say, "I just can't stop loving you!!" or "I wish I was you!". Once you get past that shy exterior she will dance and sing for you and show you what a silly little girl she can be.
 She is also a lovey, cuddly girl who ADORES her big sissy. These two girls may be almost 7 years apart but they have a very special bond that touches my heart. I love how Emmy likes to include Kailyn with Emmy's friends and also is willing to cuddle with her at night if Kailyn is scared. She will give up her time and even her comfort to make her little sister happy. And KK is more than happy to do whatever she can to please her sister by making her pictures, or giving her hugs and kisses when Emmy is upset.

Kailyn has also been lucky enough this year to be in the Dual Language program at her elementary school. They spend about half their time in English and half in Spanish. It's simply amazing listening to her speak Spanish and realize that she's learned it all in about 5 or 6 months. Aside from her being excited about speaking spanish, I think she is most excited that she has learned to read! It's so fun to watch as she grows in her ability to read and see her excitement every time she learns a new word or sounds out a hard one. She is smart, just like her big sister and loves to read, write and draw.

Plus, perhaps I'm biased, but I also happen to think she's stinkin' ADORABLE! Basically, I just can't enough of this little princess that was chosen to come to our family and bless us with her amazingly beautiful spirit. She is a treasure and a precious daughter and sister.
