With my efforts to keep things "fair" between the girls I am staying true to form and posting monthly updates a tad behind schedule. I would hate for either of them to think that I favored one over the other in the blogosphere ;-) So as I most often did with Madison I am posting Kennedy's monthly update a few days (weeks) late...can't show favoritism :-)
First off I can't believe that you are here and a real part of our family. Please don't misread what I am saying, I am so incredibly happy and joyfully overwhelmed by your presence. Its crazy to say this (especially since it has only been a month) but I can't imagine our family without you.
I know you and your sister are close in age and will grow up having many similarities and common interests but I also know that you will absolutely be your own person, as will she. You are already showing signs of Kennedy individualisms that surprise us daily. For starters you are way more active than Madison was at this age. We are betting that you will be the jock. You also rock at tummy time and aren't picky about what bottle you drink from. You are however quite particular about what you eat. Breastmilk was a total no-go for you. It didn't matter what I ate, or didn't for that matter, my breastmilk caused your SEVER pain when you digested it and made you beak out in an even worse diaper rash. There were a few times we had to air you out multiple times a day to help you heal. We have tried multiple formulas. The one we decided to stick with that had the least negative effect on you is now starting to come up immediately after you take it in. I'm not talking about a little spit up, I'm talking the entire contents of your meal covering both you and I within seconds of you finishing your bottle :-( not fun!
On another note you have acquired a few nicknames. The first being Sissy. This is primarily what I call you. Others include KAM and Kenni. You are also "our little bird". Your dainty features, dark eyes, petite nose and pouty lips paired with your ever growing appetite has resulted in this animal assignment :-) My girls, the bear and the bird. This sounds like a childrens book. The Bear and the Bird, a tale of two friends. I might need to add this to my bucket list!
To keep with the bird theme you are very "vocal". You are constantly making these little squawks and squeals. As if you are wanting to join into the conversation. It's pretty cute.
Seeing how month two is right around the corner I better stop the small talk and show you some pictures.
We love you so much and cannot begin to thank GOD enough for adding you to our family.
