Just one more day....

Tomorrow is the day.....

It IS back to school tomorrow and I am bummed that summer will officially be over for the kids but that is not what we are talking about here.

Tomorrow is Kennedi's birthday!! Wow a year already...

I am doing this today in case things are hectic tomorrow. Chris is going to be off for the next 3 days and we have a lot to do to get ready for the big birthday party.

Almost this time last year it was this.....

and this

And now it is more like this.....

and this

The changes that take place in a year are absolutely amazing. Babies come into this world completely dependent on moms and dads and by a year they barely need you. Well OK they do still need you a lot but they try not to!

This week Kennedi has popped 2 more teeth. She has a molar and then 8 total in the front (4 upper and 4 lower). I just hope when we get her pictures taken on Saturday and Tuesday we get to see some of those pearly whites.

A little before 11 months old she was walking, now at a year she is trying to run! And I am trying to keep up with her. It's not as easy at 37 as it was at 22 but it sure is just as fun!

Kennedi is turning into a little chatterbox. I have NO IDEA what she is saying but I think she does. She says momma and dadda sometime I think its comes out daddy. She has also added Kitty Cat and doggy to her vocabulary.

The expressions she makes and the things she does are priceless. I really wish I was better at taking the videos and pictures. I forget about the video camera and I am so frustrated with my camera but I need to stay on it. I don't want her to be that 3rd child with no pictures! There are things that crack Chris and I up and then of course if I don't write them down (which I mostly don't) I forget what they are when I sit to do the blog.

I guess that's all.. I am not going to write much about school tomorrow since it seems no one is looking forward to it. There are a lot of kids that Conner went to elementary school with and that were separated for middle school but starting tomorrow they will all be together again! Conner is excited to see many of them again.

We have both boys teachers and I think they will both have a great year!! GOOD LUCK TOMORROW CONNER AND AVERY!!!!

not too much on the homefront...

I just saw where its been a week since my last post. Then I sat down and tried to think of what has been going on this week. I can't think of much to write about.

The boys are at their dads for two weeks, well one more week and they will be home.

They seem to be having a good time over there, they went to Panama City for a day. Conner has been saying that he wants to go sometime since that is where all his friends go. I have never been down there. Chris and I had been trying to think of what to do for a possible trip Labor Day weekend and that was one of the places (not real high on my list). Conner told me that it was OK. When I asked him if it was worth going back to or should we go to the Ocean side he told me it would depend on who else was down there. He is one that likes the waves (like his mom) so I guess the answer is.. if a hurricane is coming, take a quick trip to the gulf.

We are back to square one with Labor Day ideas. Of course that is opening day for Auburn football and we do have season tickets. Sad thing is I am not real excited about this season (which is probably why I am willing to miss that game for a trip somewhere).

Oh well, we have some time before we have to set things in stone.

This coming week will be a little hectic I think. Kennedi turns 1 on Friday, with her party this weekend also. That seems so strange. I still remember sitting up in the middle of the night wondering if she would sleep through EVER. It seems like just yesterday.

Friday the boys also start back to school. WHY ON A FRIDAY???? I am so not ready for it!! Where did the summer go? Did we even have a summer?

The boys are not the only ones starting school soon. Kennedi is starting too... well not school but Mother's Morning Out. She is going to be heading to school 1 day a week. I hope she does well. Chris and I wanted to make sure she is socialized with kids her age since she is the baby by a lot of years. I guess I will have time to do some solo grocery shopping.

Well I guess that's all. I am sure later I will think of something that has happened this week but right now I just can't think of a thing!! Its really calm around here with the boys gone. Actually its a little too calm!!
