This is the only word we have to describe Kynnedy this week:


1.  We are coining the new phrase "Tantrum Two's".
It looks a little like this...
Kynnedy: screams "I DO IT!"
Mommy/Daddy: 0.2 seconds to respond.  Too late!
Kynnedy: instantly crying at the top of her lungs, body thrown to the floor, kicking
Mommy/Daddy:  praying for understanding, telling themselves she's only two, through gritted teeth say "Kynnedy, those are not nice words.  Go to time out until you're done crying and ready to use words."
Kynnedy: "NOOOOO" crying continues 1.5 minutes into time out.
2 minute timer is beeping
Mommy/Daddy: "Kynnedy what do you tell Mommy/Daddy?"
Kynnedy: "Sorry Mommy/Daddy for not nice words." + hugging


2.  When a tantrum is brought on while being strapped into a car seat or stroller and there is no where for Kynnedy to throw her body:
Kynnedy: impulsively swats at Mommy or Daddy's nearest body part
Repeat all steps mentioned previously. 


3.  "Nuh-Night Time Passies" (pacifiers) have been removed from the house. 
Kynnedy was sweet talked into giving them to baby cousin Cooper. As a result,  Kynnedy sweetly consoles herself with the following pep talk before falling asleep:
Kynnedy: "Give passy Cooper.  Cooper a baby.  Cooper will cry.  I not baby.  I not cry.  Passy all gone."
However, she then cries for anywhere between 30 seconds to 5 minutes while trying to soothe herself to sleep with only her pig and blankets.

Welcome to toddler-hood Mommy and Daddy.

Now that she's two...
Kynnedy is automatically a princess!
And she also now believes she's a superhero!

And as a superhero, she only associates with those who are famous...

(She's in shock upon Elsa's arrival at Elli's birthday party.)
And Kynnedy is now only friends with those who know the famous!!

Best Day Ever!

And now that she is a princess / superhero and knows famous people,
she insists on acting the part:
She attempts to tell Mommy what she will and will not eat, AND how she will eat it.
Sparkly boots are worn on command.

Sunglasses, pink pearls, and a pink poodle purse are a wardrobe staple for church.

Kynnedy, the princes / superhero and friend of the famous, has stolen our hearts :)

Kynnedy is ridiculously adorable,
and there are 3 pictures and 1 home video to prove it!

How stinkin' cute is she on her new bike while rockin' her new helmet!  
She thinks it's pretty fabulous!

 Not only is she ridiculously adorable but also ridiculously ridiculous.
Kynnedy insisted that Scout, Poodle Puppy, and Cinderella all make the weekend trip to Kansas with her!

Ummm... Yea! She's in LOVE with her new cowboy boots!
Mommy wishes she could pull off this look like Kynnedy does!
"Mommy, I'm cute!"

And finally, as many of you have seen, Kynnedy's reaction to completing the ALS ice bucket challenge was ridiculously hilarious and cute!

3 photos and 1 home video has proven that Kynnedy is ridiculously adorable!

Smart A$$

That's right.  Mommy and Daddy just called me a "Smart Ass".

~Case in Point~
Kynnedy: "NO!" or "Stop it right NOW!"
Mommy or Daddy: "Kynnedy those are not nice words." or "Please fix your voice."
Kynnedy: changes her tone to a very high-pitch, sing songy voice and repeats over and over and over "No No No No No No No!" or "Stop it. Stop it. Stop it. Stop it."

Smart Ass:

However, we can't help but laugh each and every day with our tiny SA.




Resourceful: (it's raining)

Exasperating: (She just sneezed all over Daddy's breakfast.)
(Didn't phase her.)

Party Animal:


And of course,

Can you believe that this quirky, silly, resourceful, exasperating, sweet, and adorable Smart Ass will turn two next Sunday?!?
