Taking Kennedy on Vacation

Lots of firsts for Kennedy this past month! Her first passport, first airplane ride, first time out of the country and first all-inclusive resort!

We just returned from a week in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic; staying at The Grand Palladium Punta Cana Resort and Spa. We had a great time even though it was different from the last time we were there. For instance everything revolved around Kennedy instead of me! :)

The locals LOVED her! Everywhere we went they touched her hand or cheek, saying, "Hola, Baabee!" And she would grin and wave at them! It was so sweet!!

Yes it was more work, but totally worth it!!

Kennedy Comes to Visit

The last two Saturday nights we've had a little visitor!

The first time, Brittany and Kennedy had been to the zoo about two hours from here with college friends and then came to spend the night. The next time, they were at a birthday party an hour from here and again came to spend the night, but also celebrate my birthday.

They brought flowers and dinner and we took them out on the boat Saturday night and to church and lunch on Sunday.

Kennedy has become a busy little bee and doesn't sit still anymore! It seems like that happened overnight!!

A Flower Girl at 9 and a half Months

Kennedy was in her first wedding already!! She doesn't even walk yet, so rode down the aisle in a wagon.

The bride was a friend of my daughters and although my husband and I had been invited to the wedding we couldn't make it. I really would have liked to see it though. Brittany said Kennedy smiled the whole way down the aisle!

It takes a pretty secure bride (who is beautiful by the way) to let this little bundle of cuteness go first:

Kennedy's First Easter

We just got back from nearly a week in Charleston over Easter. What a difference there is between eight and nine months! Kennedy is interacting and laughing and as busy as a little bee!

She loves to make noise: whether she's crinkling up plastic or paper, ripping pages out of magazines, scratching her nails across fabric or banging two items together (metal, wood, plastic - doesn't matter.)

And she's never still for more than a few minutes. She has a funny crawl, where she bends one leg up so she's kind of on her knee on one side and her foot on the other. We call it her crab crawl. Crazy, but she can move across the floor really fast doing it!

And there is nothing better than having her crawl up to you and sit with her arms up for you to lift her!
My heart melts every time!

Sweet Moment

John (who plays the piano really well) taught Brittany to play as she was going up. So while they were visiting overnight one Saturday last month he introduced Kennedy to the instrument.

And doesn't the one below look like she's saying, "Did I do good, Papa?"

My Little Valentine

We got to spend most of Valentine's Day with Kennedy!

Brittany, Dan and Kennedy were going to the mountains with 3 other families from Thursday through Sunday that week and we had offered to come stay at their house to take care of the dogs. (And enjoy Charleston) We were originally going to leave Sunday afternoon before they got home until Brittany found out that daycare would be closed Monday due to Martin Luther King Day. So we stayed an extra day to sit for her. And THEN Monday Hickory got hit with ice so we stayed ONE MORE DAY!

Kennedy and I when we found out Hickory was iced in and I could stay one more day!!
