Well, "development" is probably more accurate.

When Grant's parents came to visit last fall, Kendra discovered what an amazing world is right outside our window. Since then, if I take her that direction she really can't get enough. But, she's growing right up and doesn't need too much help if someone can give her a boost to the windowsill....

Don't worry, we're standing just outside the frame of this picture, and just about every pillow we own (and you all know how many pillows we own) is carefully laid out in case she did fall. But it's pretty funny--you can't really appreciate how into it she gets until you see the glass fog up because she has her nose pushed against it.

I don't have a story for this one, but I think we took it on the same day (because she's wearing the same jammies--Danielle, you're always saying self-conscious things because your kids are "still" in jammies well after morning hours but what you don't realize is that you got nothing on us. Kendra often wears nothing but the same pair of jammies a couple of days in a row.

That's a great shot of those top two teeth!

As you can see out the window, winter lasts a long time in Chicago. A very, very, very, very, very long time. Which means that all babies in the Chicagoland area will need not one, but two winter coats because they'll need it for six months. Literally. So after we got back from vacation to New Mexico/Arizona (where she had BARE legs, I'll remind you), we moved into the 18 month sized coat.

Turns out, we might get away with her wearing this one for at least the first half of next winter, too. Awesome.

And now, my favorites, always saved for last! Kendra's hair has steadily grown out and not only is it turning into a very pretty feature, it's also giving us some more laughs. Now, we not only have we had fun giving her little faux-hawks but we've also absolutely laughed out loud when she wakes up with some serious bed head.

Precious. Just precious.

My two favorite people in the whole wide world!

Cute! I love bed hair! (as long as its not on me) The great thing is that sizes are about to really slow down. It just barely hit me the other day that Simeon is going to wear the same size for like another year! I'm still used to thinking I need to pull out the next size up for summer :P Nope, I need to go buy him 2T summer clothes. Knowing Simeon he'll almost surely be back in the same he's in now for next winter :P

Hey a lot of the times it's not just my kids that are still in their jammies but me too!

I love that last picture! I want to paste a ginormous copy on my ceiling so that every time I look up (in exasperation from the trials of the day, probably) I can have a good little chuckle of joy.
