Kennedy was sick the whole trip, a total bummer. She was still pretty playful and happy but I could just tell she wasn't 100%. We did some shopping, birthday planning, lots of lunches and made a trip to the ABQ Aquarium.
My parents have a bunch of 'vintage' Little Tikes toys that belonged to my brother Alex. You can't buy them in stores anymore or we would have duplicates of everything here. Kennedy loves to play with all the Toddles (the little people) and animals. I found her a school bus full of Toddles on eBay last night, pretty excited for its arrival.
She has a few new tricks as of the trip. The most noteworthy was her saying doggie, but she can also identify faces in photos! My mom showed her a picture with a group of people and was asking her to point out Mama, Dada, etc. She was so proud of herself and this turned into a game we played the whole time we were there. She also points in the direction she wants to go and points at what she wants.
She also tries to help you put on her shoes. Hand her some sandals and she tries her best to put them on her feet. Last night we are pretty sure she said shoes. I'd be pretty excited if her second word was shoes. Stay tuned, we have to hear her do it again for it to be official.
She loved playing the piano. And she looks so big here!
Proud of herself for playing the piano.
She has enough hair for a clip!
In addition to putting on her own shoes, she also likes to put cubes of turkey between her toes. Not sure where she picked this up, but this is a new 'thing'.
Looking at the fish.
We had a lot of fun and can't wait to go back in a few weeks for our birthdays!
