Happy Birthday!

Keira is now officially 2! Wednesday was her birthday and we marked the day by visiting "cocoa" her favorite horse (on a carousel). We then had ice cream - for the second time that day. What more could a 2 year old want?

Saturday Keira had a small party with a few close friends and showed off her new swingset - thanks daddy and grandpa! The party was a huge success - made unexpectedly better by the sudden flooding of our backyard 15 minutes before guests arrived. Luckily, when your 2, a flooded backyard is even more fun than a dry backyard. As we suspected one of our sprinkler pipes had broken so I sense a little digging in our future.

Keira seemed to enjoy the party, especially the cake. She really "got into it" so to speak. All in all she had a good few days and we are so happy. We enjoy every day with her and are loving watching her learn and grow.

Happy Birthday Keira Grace!

About Me

At the age of 10 months, Keira was diagnosed with stage IV neuroblastoma. She has completed 4 rounds of chemotherapy and 2 surgeries. She has had a wonderful response to therapy and now has only a small mass left in her chest.

2 years and I still love cake!

First trip to the zoo - a great reward after a long day at Childrens!

- and I even got to hold a bird!

I see how long it's taking mommy to get through - I'd better get started now!
