On January 25, 1999 a little girl named Kaeleigh Marie Gallegos entered this world weighing 5 pounds 10 oz and 19.5 inches long. Two weeks ago we celebrated 10 years with our little "Laleybug". I can't believe where the time has gone. It just seems like yesterday that we had this tiny little baby in our hands and now we have a young preteen on our hands.

Some of the memories that I have of Kaeleigh was that when she was little instead of scooting on her tummy she would scoot on her back and do the little inch worm thing. It was so funny. Her first real word besides maya and dadya was her Uncle Bryce's name. Everything she said for a while she would put ya at the end of it. One of the words that she put ya at the end was bye ya, maya, dadya, and whenever you called her name what ya.
She has always been a little mother and still is. She was always helping out with the younger kids even though she was not that much older than them. She is still this way today. She loves to hold the babies and helps me out with Saydee when I ask her. She is almost at the age when she can start babysiting other peoples kids.
She loved her baby dolls a lot. She didn't care for barbie dolls just baby dolls. She wanted to take those where ever she went they came with her. She used to take all the clothes off of the dolls and then want me to put the clothes back on the dolls. She loved the stroller that she had for her doll and would push her doll everywhere she went. She loved to put them to bed and have me wrap up her babies in blankets. The baby had to be wrapped the same way that I would wrap her sister Saydee. She even tried to nurse her babies.
One of the memories that I have of Kaeleigh is when she was little I had a canker sore. She cried because she wanted one also. She used to also lay down by me and say "tickle, tickle, tickle" in a little whisper.

I know it is a little late getting this up. Every Christmas Eve we go to Anthony's dads house and have dinner. We always have tamales with chili verde. Deanna(Anthony's step mom) makes the best chili verde. After dinner we open up our gifts from them. They have so much fun. Anthony and I both got money from them. The older two girls got a Hannah Montana purse with money.

Every year on the 23rd of December Anthony's mom does her Christmas party. So we get together with his mom's family and his step dad's family.
We have dinner and visit. Then later Santa Clause comes and gives the kids presents. This year Kaeleigh got a necklace and bracelet, Ashlynne got Tinker Bell earings, and Saydee got some play makeup.
Here are some pictures of that night.

Ashlynne turned nine on December 20th. She was our little suprise baby. As you know her and Kaeleigh our 5 days short of 11 months apart. Many things that we love about Ashlynne is that she is very helpful, loves to help out, and loves to get her sisters and play games with them.
We love you Ashlynne and our looking to many more birthdays to celebrate with you. Here are some pictures of her when she was little also.
