Summer has came and went, fall is quickly flashing us by, and before we know it Santa Claus will be here! I know it has been a really long time since I blogged, but I have been so busy with school and have spending every chance I can with Miss Kensley. She is growing so unbelievably fast. I feel like a real parent when I can honestly say and truly mean, "They grow up so fast!" She is changing every single day; saying new things, eating new things, and even taking a step here and there. A few things we've done in the past week include: going to the zoo to trick or treat, going to Hubers to FINALLY pick out a pumpkin, taking our very FIRST step on our own, and visiting with the eye doctor! This all began last Sunday...it hasn't even been a week yet and we have done so much.
We went to the zoo on Sunday, Oct. 18 with lots of family. We saw Grammy, Addie, Uncle Sean, Aunt Megan, Gran Robin, Kristan, Mama and Papa Ott, Aunt Heather, Uncle Joey, and Brooklyn. We had so much fun there. After we got done trick or treating, we got to ride the merry-go-round with Brooklyn, Daddy, and Mama Ott. We wrapped up the evening with a dinner at Texas Roadhouse-yummy!
We went to Hubers on Tuesday, Oct. 21. We've had Kensley's little pumpkin and Mommy and Daddy's big pumpkin since late September, but we never made it to Hubers to let Kensley actually pick out her own. Finally we made it there...unfortunately the pumpkins were all pretty nasty. We left with awesome pictures, but no pumpkin. Oh well, we still had fun. Kensley got to eat some of my ice cream cone at Hubers and would get so mad when I would take a bite OF MY OWN ICE CREAM!
Lastly, we visited the eye doctor today. Kensley did so great while we were waiting to see Dr. Masden. He was very patient with Kensley. He said that her eyes were right on with development for her age. He also said she was very pleasant and seemed like a really happy baby. After we finished with the appt, he came out to the front desk and told the ladies that she was the best baby patient they've had. They wanted to know if we had drugged her!! He could have been just pulling our chain though and actually thought she was an awful patient! :)
Anyway, that is what we've been doing this week. Kensley has been so much fun as she continues to grow into a little toddler. Here are a few pictures from our adventures this week!
