Our Little Turkey on Her First Thanksgiving

Mmmmm, whip cream!

About to have Thanksgiving dinner. I had some mashed potatoes and cranberry jello!

Reading my book. I am going to read the Kohl's ad when Auntie Rachel is done so I can tell Nana what I want!

Looking so serious

If you look closely, you can see my chompers!

7 Month Post Addendum

Kenley also started snorting this month. It's so funny! She also makes a sound that sounds like a squeaky door, but I haven't gotten that on video yet!

7 Months Old!

Dear K Rae,

Today your are 7 months (and 1 day) old. I swear it w
as just like 30 seconds ago that you turned 6 months old. I feel like time keeps getting faster. You are growing up soooo fast.

Auntie Rachel says you look like Momma in this picture!

This month, you have done a lot of "grown up" things. You:
  • are cutting two teeth. I'm sure they will be adorable, but the fact hit me that you will never again have that precious little gummy grin.
  • got your H1N1 shot and didn't even cry. You didn't even flinch, and then you smiled at the nurse.
  • are sooooo close to crawling. You get onto your hands and knees and rock back and forth constantly. One day you even got up onto your toes in a downward dog yoga position!
  • are starting to sleep unswaddled. I didn't think that would ever happen, but you seem to like it, after about 5 minutes of fussing anyway. You can roll around and grab your pacifier yourself when you lose it!
  • Oh, you also sit in the front of the shopping cart now instead of the front carrier.

Hanging out on the porch swing in your fashionable fall plaid! You dress better than I do!

This month, you have fallen in love with the cats. You think they are the coolest. I have to shut the door at naptime because if you hear Lily meow, you are up and looking for her. I am surprised at how gentle you are with them. You've only taken hands full of hair a couple of times!

Getting love from Zoe

We are going to Boise on Friday for you to meet your Great Grandmother, Cynthia. This will be your second plane ride. At least we'll have some help this time and you will have someone else to play with other than me.

Playing with your favorite toy...your measuring cup!

You get more and more fun all of the time. The sound of you laughing just melts my heart, and, lucky for me, you are doing it more and more these days. I feel soooo lucky to be your Mom. You're the best kid!

Hanging out with Papa. Get your feet off the dining table!

Update and Halloween

Kenley had her 6 month check up this week. She weighs 16 pounds 14 ounces and is 27 inches long (when does it become "tall" and not "long"?) She's still somewhere in the 90th percentile for her height, but she's moved down to the 50th percentile for her weight. Tall and slim like her Papa!

Kenley had a fun first Halloween. She w
ent to two parties! I have posted some pics of my Little Yoda below!
