Exciting News!!!!

I have recently started using Shutterfly and I am so in love with this site. I used it to make a storybook documenting Kenadee's birth and first few months of life. I read it to her all of the time and I love having those memories readily available to look at anytime. I also just made a book for my little brother who is serving a mission for our church. I was able to use pictures of his companions and use neat sayings and quotes I found about missions. You can check out their books here http://www.shutterfly.com/photo-books/simple-path

Shutterfly is wonderful for beginners (they have an easy route you can take) or they give you more creative control when you are more experienced. That is one of my favorite features of shutterfly because they make things easy for people who are creatively challenged like me.
My sister in law made the cutest calendar using shutterfly. You can check the calendars out here: http://www.shutterfly.com/calendars/wall-calendars

I am so in love with their holiday cards. Check out their fabulous cards here http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/christmas-cards

I love this card!!!!

The great news is that bloggers get 50 free Shutterfly Holiday Cards just for blogging about it. Go here to sign up http://bit.ly/sfly2010 and enjoy making your cards as much as I have!!!

4 months old!

Dearest Kenadee,

On Tuesday you turned 4 months old! You are such a big girl! When we took you to the doctor, you weighed in at 14lbs 5oz and are 25 1/2 inches long! The doctor gave us the go ahead on rice cereal and your 1st foods. You hate to eat rice cereal plain (I guess your dad was the same way) so mom has to mix a little bit of fruit into it. It took you a while to get the hang of the spoon but you are getting much better at it.

You are usually a pretty happy baby these days and we are so thankful for that. You LOVE to smile and just talk away. It is the cutest thing and it makes my day every time I see that little smiling face. Yesterday I woke up to you patting my face, and when I opened my eyes I saw that gorgeous smile of yours and thought I was in Heaven.

(this is only a partial smile, but I had to get one of you in your owl hat!)

You are quite the little mover. You love to play in your exersaucer and when you are not doing that you love to be on the floor all stretched out. A couple of days ago you rolled from your back to your tummy. I am not ready for you to crawl any time soon, so please hold off on that for a few months baby girl.

You love to take in the world around you, especially when it includes your pups wrestling. You are so much more interactive these days. I must say I am really enjoying this stage because you are so much fun to play with, but you still love to cuddle. I know the cuddling is going to be short lived so I will take all that I can right now. You have a new found love for books. You love to be read to and will just stare at the book or the person reading it.

We gave you your first ponytail this month! Probably could have done it sooner but this is when mom tried. You look so stinkin cute. We also did piggies too and that was fun as well!

We continue to fall more in love with you each day and are so grateful that we were blessed to be your parents!

We love you Kenadee Rae,
Dad and Mom
