For the first 3-4 months of her life, she cried. A lot. The poor thing had colic. Many of our sleepless nights were spent driving around, swinging her car seat back and forth, back and forth, back and forth... ripping our hair out... trying to get her to just stop crying and go to sleep.
But after about 4 months, she was an angel all the time. And slept through the night every night.
She learned her first sign (sign language) by the time she was 8 months old ("milk").
Took her first steps when she was 12 1/2 months.
By the time she was 18 months, she knew about 50 different signs. However, when she started speaking more fluently, she decided that was so much easier than signing, so she stopped using sign language.
She loved to "read" stories to herself, make up songs to sing, do all the cute little baby things, laugh a lot, and of course everything she did just melted my heart.
Today she turns 5. Whenever I see small babies I have such a hard time believing that Kennedy actually used to be that small. She's growing up too fast. WAY too fast.
Here are just a few things I love about her:
I love that she says "Mom? I love you." at least 5 times each day.
I love how beautiful she is. Although I'm going to have to ugly her up before she hits adolescence. (Braces/head gear/glasses...)
I love that she makes friends so easily- wherever she goes.
I love how wild her imagination is.
