Big girl bathtub

I decided it was time to try Kendall in the big bathtub now that she has been sitting so well on her own.  She was able to try it once during our trip to Michigan but it was a little more difficult then.  Now, she is able to scoot around to grab her toys from the water, splash in the bubbles and still stay sitting without my help.  I love watching her play in the bubbles.  She loves bath time!imageKendall has a few toys to play with when she is taking a bath but so far she isn’t a fan of the toys.  Every once and a while she will play with her ducks if they float by her but for the most part she would rather hold the washcloth or pat the bubbles.  Too cute!! imageShe even makes funny faces when she is taking a bath.  Her personality is one of a kind, for sure!image

Six month photo shoot

Kendall had so much fun during her photo session.  I brought her to the Horseshoe on the campus of USC and there were so many things to take pictures on and near.  It will be fun to take her back when she is able to walk and explore the area.  Everything was so pretty. imageimageimageimageimageimageimageThank you yet again Aunt Michelle!  You really have a special talent. Three more months and I’ll be back for you to take pictures all over again.

Love,

Kendall

Take me out to the ballgame…

Sullivan had his last baseball game tonight so we loaded up all of Kendall’s goodies and headed over to Mt. Pleasant.  It sure was hot but we found some shade behind the dugout and set up some chairs and a blanket.  Kendall was unsure about all of the noise when we first got there but in no time, she had all eyes on the game.  imageimageimageWe had fun coming to see you play your game, Sullivan!  Congratulations on your trophy!

Love,

Uncle Ryan, Aunt Lindsey and Kendall

Six month well visit

Dr. Nordby said, “she’s absolutely perfect!”  What a great way to leave the doctor’s office.  Kendall checked out with yet another clean bill of health.  She remains on track with all of her milestone questions.  No teeth yet but that’s okay.  Dr. Nordby gave us the okay to try meats as well as any fruit or vegetable.  We also recently bought your first sippy cup so that will be something new to try as well.  We are so excited for all of these new, fun things but they just don’t seem like they should be happening already.  We are so proud of you sweet girl and thankful for your continued health! image

Kendall’s personality has really blossomed this past month and she is such a ham.  She smiles all of the time, makes cute little faces just because, crawls up my torso when I hold her and likes to pat on any toy that will make noise.  She had a blast with the paper that covered the exam table today!  Her feet made the coolest noise, and she just laughed.imageSuch a happy girl! Makes for an easy time at the doctor.imageOur baby has grown so much in six months! What a sweet face.image

Six months old

Half way to a year!  It continues to amaze me how fast time can fly.  I spend every day with her, after work, just playing with toys and talking.  I don’t want to miss a minute with her.

Kendall  is interacting with those around her each time she is around someone new.  Sometimes it takes her a few minutes to get used to a strange face but shortly after she’ll show a smile.  She smiles so often and it lights up the face of anyone who sees the smile.  When she is on her tummy, she has started to bring both of her knees underneath her and scoots forward as if it is her first attempts at crawling. 

We started solids at about 4 1/2 months and now her list consists of rice cereal, green beans, peas, sweet potatoes, applesauce, bananas and pears.  We have tried carrots and broccoli but so far she is not a fan.  I have been making all of her food, so I really think the carrots and broccoli are a texture issue versus taste.  We will try those two veggies again at a later date! image She is able to make her way from one corner of the crib to the next during her naps and especially at night.  I am hoping that soon enough she will figure out how to back up so she won’t keep getting stuck in the corner.  She is still on the same napping schedule and has now stretched her nursing to every 4 hours.  Within the last two weeks we have added in formula, one to two bottles a day, and she has tolerated it without any problems.

 

Kendall-

Thank you for continuing to be such a happy baby.  You only seem to get upset at the obvious, If you are hungry, tired or bored.  We have been able to determine your cries so it is easy to give you what you want.  You have stuck to a great schedule which helps in keeping you happy throughout the day.  I still look at you every night while you are nursing, before bed, and just can’t believe we have been so blessed to have you in our lives.  I say that so much, but there are just no words to describe how thankful and lucky we are to be your parents.  We will continue to provide for you to the best of our ability to keep you healthy and happy.

We love you!

Mommy and Daddy
