Kynnedy in a "nutshell":
Kynnedy has no qualms about interrupting you when it is least convenient. While attempting to go to the restroom she will stick her fingers under the door or knock incessantly while saying "open". Cooking must be done one-handed, because she insists on seeing everything that you are doing above her line of vision. While attempting to shower she will open the curtain and watch.
Kynnedy here is depicted wearing workout clothes and multiple headbands to keep the hair out of her eyes as she runs like the wind through the house. It is FRIGID outside, so her energy must be spent indoors. She just might be a future star athlete?!
Aww Crap. Kynnedy has now been caught on the video monitor twice attempting to climb out of her crib. She precariously balances along the rail on her stomach before deciding it is too big of a drop to risk injury. Daycare is another story... Her pack-n-play is much closer to ground level, thus the reward of freedom from nap out weighs the risk of injury.
Kynnedy can lay down a few musical notes. She is showing off here to her new bff Jen. To go along with her musical talents, her moves on the dance floor are to be envied! One-legged balancing, spinning, jumping, scooting, and arm waving are her best moves.
This is what happens when Kynnedy is mean to Mommy. She has to make up for it by "buying" Mom her favorite flowers. What did she do that was so unkind? Kynnedy refused to give a hug, blow a kiss, say/sign "I love you", and was happy to go to daycare. Mom's heart was a little broken, which caused her to want to leave work "sick", go pick Kynnedy up, and snuggle all day.
Despite the rare cruel moments, Kynnedy is extremely loving. As you can see here, not many stuffed animals get left out when it comes to her affection. She has been known to go to bed with her arms wrapped around 3 stuffed animals at once.
She loves to make people laugh, and when others are laughing for reasons unknown to her, she tends to fake laugh just to be included!
No one can withstand the charm of this curious/nosy, energetic, trouble making, musical, cruel, loving, and silly little 18 month old!
One more story that has to be shared. This week Kynnedy had her 18 month well-baby checkup. Completely unawares was the sweet little girl playing around the examination room in her diaper having a grand'ol time that her fun was about to be squandered with a total of 3 shots in the legs. After having to hold her down for the third and final one, she wailed into Mom's shoulder but mustered enough strength through the pain and tears to point to the door, look at the nurse, and say "OUT!". Mom laughed through her own teary eyes.
