Enjoying Charleston with Baby K

During our week long K Kamp we did a little craft a day. 

We really enjoyed the Children's Museum

And reading

The Little Gym

Best Friends Train Museum

A Bubbles program at the library

The McCleod Plantation

Meeting her new daycare teacher in the Toddler Room

And swimming and playing and dancing and singing :)
It was a blast!

K Kamp

All year John and I had planned on spending a week in August taking care of Kennedy because the school where her daycare is located closes down for a week before school starts.

We were going to call it K Kamp and I had activities planned for everyday.

A couple days prior, Brittany was picking Kennedy up from daycare and saw a sign reminding K-12 grades that the school would be closed for a week. She asked about the daycare and was told that would be open.

She said, "My mom is going to cry."

We went anyway!

And it was great!!!

Kennedy is "dedicated" at church

The day after Kennedy's first birthday party, she was dedicated at church.

I grew up in the Lutheran church where babies are baptized, but this non-denominational church dedicates their babies. (Which makes sense!)

Somehow Brittany pulled together a lovely breakfast for all of us before church. The service was great and we all liked their minister.

So glad to see Kennedy with a church to grow up in. Praying she loves her church family and stays close to God always!

The Birthday Party

For Kennedy's first birthday party, Brittany chose a beach theme:

Do all babies eat sand at the beach?

On the afternoon of Kennedy's first birthday we drove out to Kiawah Island. My daughter loves the beach and since her husband isn't so wild about it, she looked forward to having her little one be a "beach buddy."

Unfortunately, what Kennedy seems to like about the beach is the way sand tastes!!

We didn't stay very long!

Kennedy is One!!

John had been helping put some of Kennedy's gifts together while we were visiting: a play house and a water table. The night before the big day he got out the kitchen set Brittany had bought for Kennedy, thinking it would be easy like the others.


Hundreds of pieces. Tiny pieces. Little hinges. Brittany guilted Dan into staying up to help John and eventually she and I went to bed without much hope it would be done by the next morning.

But they finished at midnight and when I went downstairs at 6:30 a.m. it was sitting in the middle of the floor. And somehow Kennedy knew to put things in the cupboards and take things out again. (How do they know that at one?)

Brittany also got her a Chef Kennedy apron and chef hat.
