S: Kali's First Year
FC: Kali Lynn Spade
1: Kali Lynn, Your first year has been quite the adventure. You are such a sweet little girl. Cautious and comical would be two words I would use to describe you. We laugh at all the crazy stuff you do when you get excited, and when you play with Coconut (even when you lock yourself in Coconuts kennel). God has blessed our family with a precious little angel. We love to sit and watch you play. I know we will miss those sweet times one day. We have tried to capture every moment of your first year. Two bad I could not take a picture of that wonderful spitting face that Dad taught you how to do! Always know that you have a family that loves you dearly. Love, Mom & Dad
