Back from Hiatus

Well, we've had a busy, busy time here in Chicago...so here's a bunch of videos to catch you all up.

Kendra has an obsession with the phone. As in, I can't talk to anyone on the phone without her going a little bizzurk. I have to put it on speakerphone so that she can hear, too. We gave her an old broken phone to play with, but it turns out she doesn't need an actual phone to play "phone".

The first object is our can opener, the second is an alarm clock. Inventive, no?

Kendra's moves have been well documented, but they're evolving. Now, she doesn't just shake her tush.

She also turns in a circle if she really gets into the music, but I haven't gotten a video of that. Yet.

We've been introducing Kendra to silverware...it's a slow process. So far, the most success we've had has been if we let her feed us also. She takes it to great lengths, actually...

So funny!

And speaking of funny, we got this video a while back. She just started dragging that walker back and forth for the better part of half an hour (funny how she plays with that toy all the time now that she can walk, when we bought it for her to help her learn how to walk)...

Actually, she does this all the time while I'm cleaning. She just marches into the kitchen with this toy...she even picks it up on her way, as if she needs it to come see what I'm up to. Silly girl.

So that brings us to our last one, which I always save for my favorite.

My Dad came to visit us last week, and he brought birthday presents for his littlest girl.  And he brought the best.  Present.  Ever.  Check it out:

I started crying when I realized what it was.  I love that Kendra can open it to any page and hear her doting Grandpa's voice.  And she does.  A lot.  In fact, the only reason she's not modeling it herself is that she likes to flip the pages at random and I wanted a video of the whole thing from start to finish.  I think it's pretty awesome.

So, that catches you up, but there is definitely more to follow!
