New Cereal Bowl ~ Day 69



Kensington's new favorite thing? This cereal bowl with a straw attached that a good friend recently got her. She already loves cold cereal and eats it just about every morning for breakfast. Now? She has it for breakfast and bedtime snack too. And the other night when she would've otherwise scowled @ the soup we were having for dinner? She slurped it up through the straw. And once she got the flavor of the broth? She dug right in with her spoon! Thank you, thank you! Whoever invented this is a genius!

All Girls, All Day ~ Day 66

Since Daddy and Brenden were out of town on a camping trip this weekend, we spent an all girls day with our friends Sandhya and Neela on Saturday. We had a very good day and for once the girls were BOTH in great spirits all day long.
Here they are sitting on the box they were coloring. Uh oh. Kensi is going for the Binky...

Looks like Neela was faster than her and managed to hang on to it. That was the closest we came to a confrontation all day! See, I told you they were both in good spirits!




And the picture below? I added it just because it is so cute. This was later in the day after nap time. The girls had their first official "Nap Over". How cute is that?!

The picture above is her watching the monkey's in the video below. She was so enthralled with them. So cute to watch!

Her "Hop Hop" Towel ~ Day 62

She loves her new bunny towel Hop Hop brought her for Easter. Here she is snuggling up with it after bath time and saying "Nigh, nigh!" Wanting Mommy to get out of her face! Mommy is lovin' the toddler belly in this picture.

There is that sly smile I love so much!!

A Break In The Rain ~ Day 61

What a rainy, overcast day we had today. Thankfully we had a break in the rain right around 6:30 this evening and I was able to take Kensington outside. You know how she loves to be out and she was going stir crazy inside. Here she is dancing on the deck steps. That is our dog Sadie in the background. (Yep, the temperamental one!)
Her new favorite thing is the "big girl" swing.


Sneakin' in a yawn when she thought Mommy wasn't lookin'.



A close up of that pretty face, button nose, perfect pouty lips and blue, blue eyes!

I Love You ~ Day 60

Today we went shopping for some shrubs and trees for our landscaping. Kensi enjoyed running around and playing in the dirt of all the trees. She also became very fascinated with the flat used to transport the plants to our car. Here she is helping daddy push it. She was so sad when we had to put it away and go home.




The day ended on a PERFECT note with Kensington saying to me "I love you" for the first time! The string around my finger just got allot tighter!!

That's our girl!

Play Date ~ Day 58

We had a fun play date today with our friends Neela and Daniel. This was Kensi's first time on a tire swing and she just couldn't get enough!
She also liked riding the turtle. I remember these when I was a kid. So cool to see her on one too!

About Clarence ~ Day 57

Today was a day about Clarence. To do something special to honor his due date we bought some helium balloons. After saying a little something to him, we each let our balloons go and sent them up to Heaven.
Up & Up Until we could barely see them anymore we watched. And then they were gone. I hope he enjoyed them.


Here is Kensi with hers. She is still to little to understand what we were doing so she decided to keep hers. I think Clarence would've liked that. She did too...




Until it popped! She was a good sport about it though. No tears, thankfully!
