Just a Typical Toddler

When Kennedy was born I had no idea what was ahead.  I had no idea what life would be like in 2 weeks, 2 months or 2 years.  I quickly found out, that life was pretty typical.  And the older she gets, the more similarities I see.  She is sweet and adorable and so much fun!  She is also in the midst of the terrible twos!  She can throw a tantrum like any other two year old - complete with foot stomping.  She's also an amazing big sister.  She loves to give her brother kisses, and always comes running when he's upset.  She thinks it's so funny to tickle his feet and his belly.

Her communication skills are growing by leaps and bounds.  She's picking up new signs and words daily!  She is copying everything we do.  In fact, this week she attempted to stir the food (on the real stove) and took a plastic cup out of the pantry and tried to get ice/water from the fridge.  She loves to climb on the furniture.  And she has mastered opening doors.  She climbs the steps at the playground and goes down the slide.  She loves music, dancing and dogs.  She asks us daily for a dog.  We still haven't given in.

She amazes me more and more every day, and I could not be more proud of her.  I love seeing her learn new things and the look on her face when she accomplishes a task.

Here's some quick photos of our last trip to Washington D.C.  I have some adorable photos on my phone, but I seem to be having technical issues.  You can also get a sneak peek of her dancing, her enthusiasm for a dog and her quacking, which she started completely on her own after watching the ducks one afternoon.


  1. Your kids are both adorable! I love seeing what Kennedy is up to. :)

  2. I haven't checked your blog in awhile...and our Feb/March DS board hasn't been active in a long time! Glad to see you are doing well.
