Motherhood

19 Months

Today Kennedy is nineteen months old! And there isn’t a better way, in my opinion, to celebrate. We are currently in Santa Fe, New Mexico on a family trip. Of course I had to take her monthly portrait while we were out exploring yesterday. We found an amazing spot with views of the entire town, and a great place to take her photo. So here we are!

KENNEDY LATELY:

– Currently cutting all four of her canine teeth. She has been a little irritablle (read: a lot). One year ago she actually cut her first tooth!
– Is an amazing travel buddy. She has been on nine roundtrip flights! This past flight was great – she watched some Mickey on the iPad and ate some snacks. She just loves airplanes.
– Talks nonstop. I’m pretty sure she is already stringing together 4-word sentences. I’ve never had a hard time understanding her, because she’s been such a great communicator. She will tell you exactly how she feels!
– Wears 2T clothes (that are still a little big) and size 5 baby shoes. She really does have small feet.
– Weighs a whopping 26 pounds and is 33 inches. I think she’s relatively tall.
– Gives lots of kisses and hugs.
– Loves being the center of attention (I wonder who she got that from? hmm…) and will totally ham it up in front of a group of people.
– Is starting to need a gentle bit of discipline. No, I’m not spanking or really doing time out, but trying to redirect and distract as much as possible.
– Is very easy to put down for naps and bedtime. To the point where I just lay her in her crib, say “night night” and walk out. I fully realize that if/when we have another baby, it will totally be the opposite.
– Has some picky eater moments (especially while teething), but is getting better with veggies!
We love this little girl and we can’t believe how fast Miss Kennedy is growing!!!

    Give her lots of kisses for me, and tell her she gets a new present when we see her in a few weeks! I’m pretty sure you’ll die when you see it.
