Updates on all of us!

So Kendall,  I suppose is no longer a baby, but a toddler. She is a very busy little girl, who again is super opinionated! She is currently f=going through a mommy phase. She almost sometimes wants nothing to do with Dave. She loves to cuddle with me all the time! ( I love all the cuddles, but it makes Dave sad, because he wants cuddle too!). She is walking very well, and is getting fast, almost a run! She is into EVERYTHING still. So much so that we inverted in a very sturdy baby gate so she can't enter the kitchen area. She very much hates this, and cries at the gate when we are in there. We only do this, because there is no room in our kitchen with both of us and her in it. Its kind of small. She is sleeping through the night, going to bed by 8:45 and up by 7:15. OH!! AND she no longer nurses! it's been about a full 6-8 days with no breast feeding! It was so much easier than I thought it would be. She was just ready. She really doesn't like the taste of whole milk, so i mix it with yogurt, and that satisfies her.
Dave and I are doing well. Yes we do exist  I sometimes forget that! Dave is working hard at work, working for incentive. HE's also been busy (well we both have) working on our new home. We love our new home, also finding out that owning a home is a little stressful at times, but so worth it. I received a new calling at church, and am the first counselor in Primary. I'm excited to be working with the children and the other ladies in the presidency. It's a very busy calling though, that will be a little hard sometimes. Dave is still first counselor in Elders Quorum. Oh and Dave and I get to go on a date Saturday, first one in a long time!

Kendall's First Birthday!! (Lots of Pictures)

Kendall turned 1!!! Crazy how fast time flies. It seems just like yesterday she was born. Now she is a walking, jibber jabbering little girl! She is a very independent, social, active little girl. She takes a daily nap and is finally sleeping through most of the night. She will wake up, and cry herself back to sleep. She is kind of a picky eater. Her favorite things to eat are bananas, yogurt, cheese, and Cheerios.We are constantly having her try new things. Right now we are trying to get her to drink whole milk, and she doesn't like it at all. She loves playing outside, (loves walks)and loves all of her toys, She especially loves getting into all of the cupboards in the kitchen. She is a little shadow, always following mommy or daddy around the house. She says mama, dada, hi, uh-oh, nana, daddy, and many things that I couldn't even to begin to try and spell. She claps, waves hi or bye, points, gives hugs, and kisses and walks all the time, and is now working on climbing on things. She is a very opinionated little girl. She knows what she wants and what she doesn't want, and she will for sure let you know either way. She gets sad when daddy leaves for work, and still likes nursing from mommy twice a day. She is not shy and loves most people. I love this little girl more than I can ever express, and she amazes me everyday! I can't wait to spend many more years with her.
