365: Year One The Barnett Family


Dear Kinley, We have had such an amazing year together! You have brought so much laughter and happines into our lives. Your arrival turned a couple in love into a family. We are so proud of you already. With all of our love, Mom and Dad


Happy Birthday!!! On the evening of January 28th, mommy started to feel like tonight might be the night. We went to bed around 10pm thinking we could get some rest before you came. But, the contractions became strong and close together. We laid in bed and timed them on Daddy’s iPhone until it was time to go. At 1:30am we drove to the hospital with all of our bags, not knowing what to expect. Mommy worked in the ER of the hospital, and all of her co-workers were anxiously awaiting our arrival, as they were very excited for you to be on your way. “Baby B” did not want to come just yet. Mommy was in labor for 30 hours! It was a long, long wait. The nurses kept telling us “it will be soon… just a few more hours,” then finally the time had come. 12:24am on January 30th was without question, the most amazing moment of our lives. “Baby B” was here! Such a beautiful and perfect little girl...

Poor Baby!

Kinley was very jaundiced. They wanted to keep us at the hospital for another night until the hyperbilirubinemia got better, but they let us go home on time as long as we took Kinley to the doctor the following day. Our poor baby had to have blood drawn every day for the first week to monitor her bilirubin levels. It was very hard to watch them prick our new baby in the foot every day :( The doctor told us to put Kinley in the sunlight as much as possible to help her get better. Daddy and Kinley took a nap in the sun on the floor in her new bedroom. day 007

Time Flies! Wow! We can’t believe how fast this first year has flown by! Watching you grow and learn this past year has been an amazing experience. You are such a fun and happy little girl. You put a smile on our faces each and every day!

Š 2012 Bruce and Tara Barnett


Kinley Paige Barnett This year we started our family. What a crazy journey it has been! The first year of life is such an amazing experience for a baby as well as first time parents. We wanted to document every step of the way, so we took a picture each day for the entire year. From birth to the first birthday and everything in between, we had such a great year together. Some days were easy and others were hard. Sometimes the last thing either of us wanted to see was a camera, but we stuck with it! We will never forget everything this first year has brought, but we wanted Kinley to have something to look back at and re-live that first year when she was older. Who would have thought you could love someone so much?!?
