Kenley! 2.5?! How??? It is amazing how fast the last six months have gone.. you are definitely not a "baby" anymore. You have such a laidback and funny personality and can light up a room with your smile. You are so fun and you will talk to anyone...little social butterfly.
Happy Half Birthday, babygirl!!!
Likes: Babydolls, Disney Princesses, swinging at the park, going to the farm to see the animals, Hello Kitty, swimming in the pool with your float, taking walks in the double stroller, eating snacks, helping mama clean, manicures, tubby time, anything pink and girly, puzzles, painting and coloring.
Dislikes: Vacuum, lawn mower, getting in your car-seat, when Brady takes your things, when we say no (haha)
Sleeping: You still nap everyday for 2-2.5 hours! I put you down around 2ish and if you don't get your nap in, you are a nightmare at dinnertime. You sleep from 7:30pm-7(ish) am. You don't really fall asleep until after 8:00 though after singing and chatting away in your room to yourself. You love your Miss Bunny and soft white blanket. You have a sound machine that plays "white noise" and can't sleep without it. Every night before bed, we have to sing you "Rock-a-bye Baby," "ABC's," and "Twinkle Twinkle" in that order. You LOVE reading books before bed and always read them in Brady's room. You prefer for Mama to put you down for naps and for Daddy to put you to sleep at night.
Eating: You love food but love snacks the most! "I want a snaaaaack!" You CHUG your drinks first and then eat your meal. You love milk and ice water, and I can still get away with cutting your apple juice in half. You like to steal sips of my coffee and the flavor doesn't even phase you! Favorite foods are: Annie's mac & cheese, any fruit, yogurt, chicken breasts & chicken "nuggies," pirate booty, cheese, hummus, goldfish, greek pasta salad, and any/all sweets.
Playing: You love to play ANYTHING with your Big Brother! You don't really "play," just pick something up and drop it. Kenley the mess-maker! You are getting into puzzles and can do the 24 piece Doc McStuffins one on your own; Melissa & Doug wooden ones are also favorites. You love your Fisher Price dollhouse and Princess castle and all the Little People that go with them. Bitty is your favorite babydoll and you LOVE undressing all your babies! You love to sing and your favorite songs are "Skinamarinky-Dinky-Dink," "The Wheels on the Bus," "ABC's," and "Row, Row, Row Your Boat." You like to watch TV in the morning and your favorite shows are "Team Umizoomi," "Dora," and "Paw Patrol" currently. You love "Frozen" and we have watched it a millllllllllion times---you remind me of Anna but you like Elsa better. You love books and rip them all off the bookshelf. I sometimes catch you with 20 books surrounding you and you "read" them to yourself. Your stories are so sweet!
Diapers: UGH!!!! I am still buying diapers! You are not interested in the potty yet... I have tried a few times and a few methods and you're just not ready yet. You wear size 5 Pampers.
Clothing: Some size 2T tops and mostly size 3T pants and dresses. You are so long and I want you to be able to wear your clothes for a long time! I am loving Crew Cuts and Baby Gap lately and also have bought a TON of rompers for you at Target. Love me some Tarjay! You love accessorizing with jewelry and little purses and still always have a big bow in your hair! It's become like another arm to you... haha. You are getting big enough for two "piggies!"
What I want to remember:
-You call Hudson "Huddy."
-Your sweet voice! You say "W" instead of "R"... aka "Bwady" hahaha
-Your pink puddle jumper and how cute you look it in when in the pool.
-How you "prance" instead of walk.
-How you call for us when you wake up to come get you.
-Your obsession with certain jams (PJs)--- Doc tank/pants & nightgown.
-You are a Daddy's girl!
-How you and B are seriously best friends! You also can fight like brother and sister... more like twins!
-Your adorable strawberry blonde hair and how it looks like a mini-waterfall in your pigtails.
-You are a chatty Kathy! You will legit talk to anyone...you still snacks from people at the beach and talk to all the grandfathers at Brady's t-ball games.
-You love going through my makeup and LOVE wearing lipgloss.
-You give everyone a hug & a kiss goodbye.
-How excited for school you are! You keep talking about how you can't wait to play with friends.
-How you say "just the girls!" when we do stuff one-on-one.
What I'm looking forward to:
-Enjoying long summer days with you and the boys!
-You starting dance in the fall. My ballerina baby!
-No more diapers!
-Playing things like "Barbies" with you :)
-Watching you swim this summer.
-Watching you interact with Hudson...you are the best Big Sister!
What Daddy's looking forward to:

Please slow down, sweet girl! I love you so much.
