We have been taking advantage of the sunny and hot weather and have been heading out to the pool each day. The boys groan about it some days and then when they get there and see they have friends there they love it and many days I have trouble getting them to leave. It's nice that they are older and I can leave them at the pool and come back later to pick them up.

Kennedi is even loving the pool now. She has a little friend she plays with a few times a week. M is a little less than 2 months younger than she is and they really are cute together. Kennedi loves the water. I figured she would since she loves to take a bath. Last week I stood her in the baby pool and she grabbed the side and stood there playing with toys. Every once in awhile she would let go and fall into the pool and grab the side again and stand up. She never cried or fussed.

Yesterday we went into the big pool without her float. She will sit and chill in her float for a long time. Yesterday I had her and she just splashed around and kicked her feet. When someone would splash her she would never cry. I decided to see what she would do if she went under. I thought it was about time, she is 10 months old.

I grabbed her hands and bobbed her up and down a few times and one bob I just put her all the way under. She came up and did not cough or cry. It was amazing! It was like she knew to close her mouth and she did it. Of course I had to do it again about 10 more times yesterday. While at the pool today I did it a few more times and it really did not seem to phase her at all. We are so lucky to have such a laid back and wonderful baby!!

I could not forget the boys. I was going to put some of their pictures on here from the pool also but none turned out good at all! Of course they have discovered the club house and that the food is better up there. I finally let them go up and get some lunch.

When we got home today I put Kennedi in for her 2nd nap and Conner and I had to run an errand. Avery was home with Kennedi in case she woke up. I get a call when we pulled back into the neighborhood and it was Avery saying....

Mom, Kennedi is asleep in her crib without a diaper on.

I thought he said with a diaper on and I was like... OK and you are calling to tell me she has a diaper on..

But he said no mom she does NOT have a diaper on...

Oh no! I told him we were in the neighborhood so stay out of her room and I would be there in a minute. I guess this is her latest thing. She took her diaper off for the first time last week.

Sure enough we got home to this....
and this....
and also this....

aww what a sweet baby!!
Yes, I took the original picture off. I figured Kennedi would one day kill me for that picture. On top of that if her "protectors", AKA, her brother's ever saw it I would be in very big trouble!(Thank you Nancy for photoshopping that for me). Hmm maybe I should send some of my pictures to Nancy to photoshop (I really would love to look like a size 2).

ahhh the weekend!!

It takes so long for weekends to get here and when they do they go by way to fast! Chris was off yesterday so we had a date day. We have not left Kennedi behind to do something fun as a couple since the UGA vs Auburn football game the second weekend in November. I guess we were due!

It so happens that we were due on the weekend that Boston was in town playing the Braves! What a series!! Now I am a Braves fan but when the Orioles and Boston are in town I do pull for them. I guess growing up in Baltimore and going to Memorial Stadium and later Camden Yards will do that to you. The Boston liking I guess I get from my boys. They have been Red Sox fans since, well, birth. I guess their dad got to them before I did with baseball and got them really into the Red Sox.
We got up and dressed Kennedi into a really cute outfit! I have been waiting all summer for her to wear this outfit and it finally arrived!! Isn't she just too cute in her little Boston dress with that huge bow in her hair!! Yes, I do know the bow is as big as her head but hey, after having 2 boys I am loving that I can put them on her head!! I think she looks so old in this picture.
Here is our little cheerleader... This is about the only time she will be a cheerleader (we hope) unless its Halloween... I cant wait to sign her up for soccer and lacrosse and softball and swimming and whatever else she wants to try (but not too soon). But, for now we will let her be a cheerleader.
Chris and I got tickets for yesterdays game and of course he wore his Braves hat and I put on Avery's Red Sox hat. We went to lunch before hand at a sports bar in Atlanta that was very good. We were stuffed and ended up not eating dinner.
Turner Field was PACKED! There were more Red Sox fans there than Braves fans, which I guess is kinda sad but it was fun. Our seats were great and the usher (an older man) kept us very entertained. It was so hot the whole game... I had my first beer in a year and a half. I have to say it tasted very good!!
The game was pretty boring. I wanted to good close game but I also wanted some scoring. As you can see there was not much of that!
But we survived and the Red Sox came out on top. I was even a good fan and did not run it in to Chris after the game. I think it was just way too hot and I wanted to get into the jeep and the A/C.
Today the boys are going to the game with their dad and I hope they get to see a good game. I am sure they are decked out in their Boston jerseys and hats looking very cute!
I guess it is back to reality. Chris is back to work, I have cleaned the basement (well one room of it) and Kennedi is up in her crib sleeping soundly. The boys come home tonight and we will enjoy a week at the pool and mentally prepare to run the Peachtree Road Race on Saturday (a 10K through a part of Atlanta). Its so much fun and I hate every minute I am running it! It should be a lot better this year since it is not just me running but also Chris, Conner and Avery!! Whew!!
