Kendall is two!


Kendall Paige, You are two years old.  Where does time go?  It seems to be moving at lightening speed around our house!  Seems like only yesterday the nurse was trying to talk us out of leaving the hospital (it was snowing) but we were ready to get you home! 

   At the Doctor's office on Monday you weighed 27 lbs.  Your two year appointment is scheduled for a few weeks away.  We'll know more of your stats then.

   It seems that your talking is taking off more everyday.  You talk in mostly phrases and sentences now.  I love hearing you talk.  Sometimes it takes a minute to figure out what you are saying. 

You still love your blankie and sucking your two fingers.  Since your last update we've lost 2 blankies.  Both at Wal-mart...that place eats blankies!  We're on blankie #3 with a spare in the closet.

You have grown a lot since 18 months.  Then you were wearing size 24 months and 2T's, size 4 diapers (size 5 night time diapers), and size 4 shoes.  Now you are wearing mostly 3T's, size 5 diapers (size 6 night time diapers), and your shoes are size 6 and 7's.  Potty training is in your near future.  Momma loved washing and folding your tiny panties yesterday.  Dad's excited about not having to buy you diapers anymore.  Hopefully you will take off on pottying.  

   You have so many new toys from Christmas and your Birthday.  It would be hard to say what are your favorites.  You love pocket books, necklaces, and babies. I love that you are a girly girl!

    We like to have you stay in the church services with us.  You are getting to where you can make it through the services.  You are pretty quiet and we're working on the sitting still.  You seem to do better when sitting with dad than mom.  Training you to sit in church has been exhausting!!!!

     The other day you got a tooth brush from the dollar tree.  You love that thing.  It was an added bonus that it came in a zipper pouch.  After a day of carrying it around EVERYWHERE you couldn't find it.  So you turned to dad and said, "Da-da, where'd brush teeth go?"  I love your cute ways of expressing yourself!

     Your little life has been such a blessing to us. You can be a handful and stubborn but you can also be sweet and a perfect delight.  We're love all your quirks.  Some days I could "string you up" but those days are worth it.  Our prayer for you is that you will be saved at an early age, and that you will always love and want to serve God.  You are special to him.


We love you, Kendall Paige!

I love that 4th pic down. I think it shows a lot of sass in her personality. It's so cute, and she just has this "look" in her eyes! :) Yay for training her to sit in church! We have a couple coming right now with a 14 month old. Poor parents. That girl has smashed her dad in the mouth with a set of keys multiple times. LOL But they are new and eager to learn how to handle situations like that. I can't believe she is 2 already! Have fun with the potty training. It can be so hard while juggling two kids, but mostly just be consistent and it will click when she is ready. Most or maybe all of mine were trained in the day but not night for a while, but daytime panties are huge diaper savings! ;) Happy late birthday to K-girl!
