The many faces of Kendra

Grant and I spent some time this evening watching our home videos from Kendra's birth and the first few weeks of her life and it's quite remarkable to us how much she has grown and developed in the months that have flown by since then.

So bright and aware! She's so curious about the world around her and is always looking out to see what's there. If you hand her something, she sees it, takes it and wants to explore it. Which she does...

...by putting it in her mouth.

And speaking of things going in her mouth--she's had her first taste of rice cereal (but we had it so watered down it was just rice milk, really--just practice with the spoon)!

Grant was confused that I insisted on stripping her down to her diaper before this activity began. Even in this picture you can see it running down her chest...only the precursor of many, many messy meals to come.

She's not sitting up on her own yet, but she's got sitting back down pat.

Looks pretty cozy, doesn't she? Just chillin' like a villian with the 'rents.

And as she grows she changes. There's already a difference in her fussiness.

Though we weren't able to capture it as well... Sometimes we feel like bad parents because we laugh at her for a moment before tending to her needs because it's just hilarious the way her little lip curls!

But of course, at the end of the day she's still our darling little girl.

Oh, we love her so.
