Happy Mother's Day!

First, let me wish all the mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day!  I hope you all enjoyed your special day.

Kennedy and Marlon (with some input from Caleb) have had a few days of wonderful surprises for me!  They kicked it off on Friday when Marlon took Kennedy for a daddy/daughter afternoon.  Mommy got to go for a massage and spend the afternoon scrapbooking.  Daddy took Kennedy to Cracker Barrel for lunch, where he learned a few important lessons.
1) Don't let Kennedy eat off a plate.
2) Order yourself something easy to eat.
3) Don't take your eyes off the baby!

Apparently, when the food came, Marlon cut up eight pieces of pancake and put it on a plate for Kennedy.  He proceeded to cut up his food.  Kennedy, as she usually does, devoured her pancake and when daddy didn't notice and promptly replace it with more, she took matters into her own hands.  She picked up the plate and tossed it.  Not just tossed it on the floor next to her.  But tossed it through the air.  Fortunately, she missed the innocent bystanders enjoying their lunch.  And once it was confirmed that no one got hurt, everyone was quite amused.  Daddy offered to pay for the plate, but they insisted it was no big deal.  Kennedy is obviously ready for her first Greek wedding.

I had a weekend full of surprises and I am so lucky to have such a wonderful husband and daughter.  It's hard to imagine what life was like before miss Kennedy came along.  She has given life a new meaning and made me a better person.  I'm really looking forward to seeing our family grow in a few months.

I know I've been slacking on photos and posts lately and I'm determined to get better with that!  I just need to figure out the best way to blog from my iPad.  So if you have any suggestions, feel free to let me know!

Until then - here are some photos from the past two days.  Kennedy has really gotten into playing with the iPad and her Laugh and Learn House.  There are also some really funny ones of Grandma and Kennedy on my camera.  I promise, I'll get those posted in he next day or two!

Mommy, I have a secret and I'm not telling.

Mommy do you like your surprise dinner!?

I highly recommend the grilled chicken and wasabi mashed potatoes.

Mommy, how come you never put chocolate chips in my pancakes before?

I hope mommy doesn't mind that I've adopted her new iPad.

This Peek-a-boo Barn game is fun!

What took you guys so long to buy one of these?

Hey peeps, I'm home!

Hey mommy, I'm going to get your phone.

Who knew opening and closing this door, and crawling back and forth was so much fun?
