I can touch my toes!

Kennedy spent a few days at Grammie Nana and Grandpa's house this week. She had a great time! As you can see, she has found her toes, and her hands are just about always in her mouth!

Lots of fun!

Well...we just got back from another fun-filled trip to Chicago. Matt had to go to Mexico for work, so Kennedy and I went to Chicago so I could work in the office and she could see her family! A couple exciting things happened while we were gone. Kennedy rolled over for the 1st time AND she got her first haircut! (nothing major, just a trim!)

We had a great time, but I just realized that I didn't take many pictures :( Here's some funny shots of all the cousins...we tried to get them all together for a cute Christmas photo, but it didn't work. Will we EVER learn?!! You'll notice that Claudia is missing from these pics. Poor Claudia did not want to have her picture taken!

Kennedy's first meal and a tooth??!!

Kennedy had her first taste of rice cereal tonight!
Hmmm, not sure if I like this or not.
OK, I've had enough!Back to eating my hand!
Of course, we have a short video to share...

Also...Kennedy is getting her first tooth! I know, I didn't believe it either, and the dr said it is very unlikely that she will get a tooth until at least 6 months. BUT...I was feeling her gums today and sure enough - a tooth has popped through on the bottom!!!

Trip to St Louis!

We spent last week in St Louis with Matt's family and had such a great time visiting with everyone! While we were there, Matt & I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary and Kennedy turned 4 months! Here's Kennedy at Aunt Megan & Uncle Steve's...watching Baby Einstein. Megan & Steve took care of her overnight and had a fabulous time!
We decided to give Megan & Steve a break and moved over to Aunt Cherie & Uncle Steve's (yes, another Uncle Steve) house. Grammie J was so excited to spend a whole week with Kennedy.
Mackenzie & Maddy came by to play with Kennedy. She had so much fun with them!
Kennedy dressed for Thanksgiving!
And...here she is hanging out in the kitchen, helping us prepare for yet ANOTHER dinner!!

Weekend with Santino

Last weekend, my best friend from college was in town. Beth has a 5 month old boy, Santino, who is ADORABLE! We took Kennedy & Santino to the aquarium on Friday and hung out at our house on Saturday. They were so cute together! Matt told Santino not to get any ideas...Kennedy is never allowed to date!!

Kennedy & Sunny

Our friends Rob & Charlotte and our "furry friend" Sunny are staying with us a couple days while they get ready to move back to Phoenix (so sad). This morning, Kennedy & Sunny hung out and watched Baby Einstein together.
Yesterday, Kennedy and I went for a walk in her stroller for the first time. She loved being able to see everything that was going on. Here she is all bundled up for the ride!

Another trip to Charleston!

We had another great weekend in Charleston at Ron & Donna's place. Kennedy is such a great traveler! Here's Kennedy modeling a new hat at the store. The hat matches a coat Donna & I really liked, but they didn't have it in her size :( So...we're hoping we can find her size this week!And here she is at Java Java coffee house. She was enjoying a bottle with Dad and Grandpa while Mommy and Donna (she still needs a "Grandma" name) shopped!

Church and fun with Grandpa

We attended a new church yesterday. It was very different from the traditional service we are used to, but it was nice. Almost felt like we were at a rock concert! Kennedy enjoyed it. She smiled at everyone around her!

Grandpa & Grammie Nana came over for dinner. Grandpa got Kennedy to hold her own bottle. I didn't believe them at first, but here's the proof!!

Halloween

Poor Kennedy! She arrived at her first Halloween party to find out that her chilipepper costume was too small :( Guess I should have tried it on beforehand!! It was a 0-9 month, but it didn't fit. But, here she is in her Halloween "outfit". (She loves to eat her hands!)
She had a great time with her friend Mary, the goldfish. Thanks Kiera, Brad & Mary for having us over!

My new place to sit!

Kennedy got a Bumbo seat last night. It WAS her 3 month birthday, and we went to Target so she could pick out a present!

Here she is watching Baby Einstein this morning. She must REALLY like it because she had a major diaper blowout a few minutes later!!! Of course, Matt had JUST left for work :o)

3 months old!

Kennedy is 3 months today! I can't believe how much she has grown and changed. She loves to watch TV and laughs all the time (mostly at her Dad!)

Thanks for 3 wonderful months Dolly (her nickname). Mommy & Daddy love you!!

I finally got to meet my Grammie J!

We took a drive to St Louis last Wednesday so Kennedy could meet Grammie J and some of her cousins. Grammie J was SO happy to finally get to see Kennedy. It was a short trip, but well worth it. We will be back for Thanksgiving and can't wait spend more time with everyone!

SUPRISE Mimi!

We had a great time in Chicago last week! Mimi was very suprised to see us (she didn't know we were coming). We celebrated her birthday on Saturday with a trip to the spa and then dinner with my sisters and their husbands. Aunt Deb, Cindy, Cheryl & Maw all took care of Kennedy while we went to dinner. Turns out, she watched football all night with Uncle Tony!
We went to a Halloween party at Jen's house. Kennedy slept through most of the party, so we didn't get to try out her costume. Payton & Chloe looked ADORABLE in their costumes!
Here's some cute pictures from lunch at Portillos with Cooper, Claudia & Max.
