My Kenley, 

This past month was a BIG one. One night just after your 7 month birthday you woke up crying in the middle of the night, something you haven't done since you were 4 weeks old. I rocked you right back to sleep and the next morning...YOU HAD A TOOTH! I couldn't believe my eyes and couldn't believe that teething was such a non-issue for you. Just a few days later and the exact same thing happened, and once again there was a brand new pearly white little tooth! Two teeth in one week!
Not long after your teeth came in, you started to crawl! You had been getting so close for so long and then one day you were officially on the move. 
Now that you are mobile, you are ALL OVER THE PLACE. You are such a busy little bee, always needing to explore. You are just like your daddy - so curious and so nosy. It's so fun watching you scootch all over the house and chasing Bailey has become your new favorite game. 

As if crawling and two teeth weren't enough, you decided that it was also time to starting pulling yourself up. I came in to check on you while you were supposed to be napping and could not believe my eyes when I saw you standing there looking at me! Daddy immediately lowered your crib and I cried when I put you to bed that night, it just seemed so grown up and I couldn't quite handle it. 

This month you've also branched out and tried some new foods like black beans, chickpeas, and potatos. 
You love to eat and I think so far your favorite foods are Mangoes and Sweet Potatoes. You've also been learning how to feed yourself and have been loving you new MumMum treats!
I don't know how it's possible but you are cuter and sweeter every day and just when I think I couldn't possibly love you any more... I do! It absolutely amazes me to see how much you are growing and learning each and every day. I know that our days with a baby are numbered as you are going to be a full blown kid before we know it. But, now matter big you get, and no matter how smart are you will ALWAYS be my baby.

I can't believe how grown up she is already. It's been so cool to watch her go through every milestone, but it's already stressing me out... KENNY SLOW DOWN! HAHA! :)
