Back to the Routine
Kendra and I arrived back in Seattle Tuesday night. Wednesday was spent recovering from our whirlwind trip. As usual, there wasn't enough time to see everyone, but we had a wonderful time.
Ann, Cass and Cass's kids came down. They rented a hotel room, and we had a ball. The hotel had a pool and a hot tub, so we took the kids swimming every night. Kendra LOVED the water. She kicked and splashed and explored the different textures of the tiles.
We spent one of the absolutely gorgeous days at the Zoo. Kendra wasn't all that impressed with the animals, but she loved splashing in the fountains and feeling the textures of the wooden fences. Her Auntie Annie bought her a pink stuffed penguin that she chewed on the rest of the weekend. :)
Kendra made some amazing leaps forward in her development. She has started "conversational" babbling - making noises that are more in line with actual conversation ebb and flow. She also started getting up on all fours and rocking - the prelude to crawling. She mastered the army crawl, though, and goes wherever she wants - which is everywhere. She can pull herself up on furniture, and transfer herself from one piece of furniture to another. She's also started toddling around while hanging onto your fingers.
My baby is growing up so fast.
