Kenley's First Trip to the Coast

Not so sure how she feels about the sand!

OK, getting used to the sand...

She's the princess of the world!

15 Months Old!

Dear Doodle Bug,

Today you are 15 months old! You are becoming more awesome and more challenging everyday. 

This past month, you have really started to test your boundaries. You have been saying "uh oh" for a while now, but you finally learned to use it in context...except you purposefully cause the "uh oh's."  You'll push your cup off the table..uh oh! You throw your toys...uh oh!  You also started hitting. Where do babies get this??? It's not like you've ever seen people being hit. I tell you no, and you just laugh and laugh. What am I going to do with you! 

Even though you are pushing boundaries, you have become so much more cuddly and loving this past month. You love to hug my neck and give me kisses. It melts my heart more than anything when you come up to me and give me a hug or kiss that I didn't prompt. You will also actually sit in our laps for more than a half a second. You really love just sitting next to us on the couch. 

You are also quite the little comedian.  You do silly stuff all the time to try and make us laugh.  You love laughing at yourself as well.  You think you are soo funny, and you are.  You really just love to laugh. 

You have proven several times this month that you are MORE than capable of walking. You've walked across the living room a couple of times with no problem, not even a waver.  But, you still prefer crawling. I guess you'll walk when you are good and ready! I don't know where you get that stubborn streak (Papa)! 

We are going to the beach today to celebrate your Papa's 29th birthday...your first time! We are going to have a blast! I love you so much Sweet Baby!

Kenley's First Trip to the Zoo!

For some reason, Phil's company decided to give it's employees today off instead of July 5, like the rest of the business world. So, we took advantage of the odd day off and took Kenley to the zoo for the first time! It was a stifling 61º in Portland today. Yes, it's July and it's still in the 60's (I'll be wishing for this day next week, when it's supposed to be 90º).

It was a little drizzly, so some of the animals were hiding away, but we saw the polar bears, zebra, giraffe, and lots of underwater creatures. The fish and turtles seemed to be K's favorites. I think it was because she could get right up to the glass.

K's Nana comes on Monday and we are hoping she'll want to go to the zoo with us on a nicer day. Maybe more animals will be out!
