A Note From Kennedy

Hi blog reading people!  It's Kennedy.  I'm keeping mommy really busy these days, and she's kind of tired from chasing me and waiting on my little brother to show up.  So I offered to write today's post.

As mommy might have mentioned, I waited until she got really big and really slow to start showing off all my motor skills.  I'm climbing, walking with my push toys, and working on standing independently.  I'm also starting to be more compliant with practicing my speech stuff, and mommy says that I'll be meeting my new speech therapist tomorrow.  I'm not sure how I feel about that.  Maybe my little brother will decide it's time to show up and mommy will have to cancel. 

I'll give you a run down of some other things I've been doing lately. 
* Emptying all the kitchen cabinets. 
* Emptying all of my brother's clothes onto the floor.
* Refusing to go to bed.
* Crawling away from mommy when she tries to put my shoes on.
* Throwing balls in the bath tub, and playing peekaboo with mommy over the side - while I'm supposed to be playing with Daddy.
* Tossing food on the floor when I'm not in the mood for it.
* Pulling clothes and cards off the racks at Target.

Basically I'm doing my best to do everything that a toddler my age does.  It's just awfully inconvenient timing for mommy.  I'm also doing cool things like learning signing, going swimming,  taking all 5,000,000 toys out of the toy box and not playing with them, playing with mommy's water bottles, learning how to use the laptop and remote controls, and playing new speech games on the iPad.  I even stopped using bottles at night and just drink from my straw cup!  Mommy is pretty excited about that, but daddy says he misses giving me bottles, especially right before bed.  I've also been playing with my babies a lot.  Mommy keeps saying I need to practice, especially being gentle. 

Mommy has been slacking on uploading photos too, but she promised to have more of me on here soon.  Hopefully Caleb will be here soon and she can show you pictures of me and my brother!  


  1. So glad to hear you are doing so well, Kennedy! I think you and Hailey would get along great. She loves doing all those things, too...except for the straw cup. She seems to be afraid of that one. You might want to cut your mom some slack though...she's getting tired! Hope your little brother arrives soon. We can't wait to see pics!
