Happy 12th Birthday Princess Kennedy

Kennedy is 12!

What an amazing day. The thought of saying “Kennedy is 12” eight years ago was unimaginable.  We didn’t now if she would make it through the year, let alone to her 12th birthday.  Yet here she is – a happy, vibrant, funny, beautiful and kind little girl dancing through life.

A lot has happened since my last post in December.  Kennedy had her braces off, performed her first solo at a a competition, took up piano, earned straight A’s and she even has her first friend that’s a boy (oh boy!).

It’s been almost 5 years since she finished her last chemo treatment and outside of a funky little scar on her chest, you would never know the battles she’s faced.  

Kennedy takes on life with gusto.  She rarely falls pray to drama and thinks with a bird’s eye view rarely seen in children (or adults for that matter).  Her life lesson at such a young age has given her perspective that I admire and strive to achieve.

I (we) are so proud of the young woman she is becoming. We learn a little more from our little hero everyday.

Happy birthday princess K!   We love you so much.

I attached Kennedy's tap solo - her tap teacher couldn't have choreographed to a better song as this kid has a lot to be a happy about.  We all do.
