You'll always be my baby.

Let me start by saying that I love adore the little girl Kennedy is becoming. It's a very bittersweet thing though! Over the past few months it has started to hit me that she's not a baby anymore, but a little kid now! She is still bursting with personality. She's stubborn at times, very determined and independent... And let's be honest that sounds a lot like me! In my opinion these can all be very good character traits to possess as long as they are channeled into the right direction. 

I've been looking into Montessori teaching methods, activities and home ideas as they foster a lot of these character traits rather than trying to inhibit Kennedy. One of the first things we have done is buy her a little table that's just her size! She sits at it to eat her snacks and meals and she has loved it from day one. That's what this big smile is for!

I've also attempted to paint her toe nails a couple of times and she likes to look at them when we're "all doe" (that's the way she says it) but she doesn't like to sit still to let me paint them so I have to try and be good and quick - something I'll have to work on. 

We sure love this little gal and all she teaches us while we try our best to be good parents to her.
