Bum scoot....broken tooth

Shall we just say that Miss K has finally figured out how to get around on our hardwood floors...and it happened overnight. All of the sudden she's zooming around the room. It's not walking and it's not even a crawl. I call it a bum scoot. One leg bent in front, one leg bent in back, bum on the floor and two hands grabbing the floor ahead of her, pulling her along. She's much happier and content being able to move about. She can get what she wants now by herself...sometimes not a good thing, depending what it is she wants!!

It will be two months on Thursday, since we met Kennedy for the very first time. Wow, how she has changed. She's grown. She's gone from not sitting up by herself, to now scooting all over the place. She is an excellent eater and is growing like a weed. She LOVES people. Like I've said before, the bigger the crowd,`the more she likes it. Loves to be entertained. She brings so much happiness to our lives...

On Sunday I broke my front tooth while eating a hotdog. I realized later that the tooth probably cracked on Saturday when we were at my parent's house. Kennedy's head hit my chin and my teeth slammed together very hard. At the time I didn't realize it, but I'm assuming that's when the damage was done as a hotdog wouldn't have done it. So off I went to the dentist today...she fixed me up as good as new. Dental work is definitely not my favorite thing but my dentist does a wonderful job and I didn't feel a thing!

If you have the time and would like to read an amazing story, check
this out. It's about a little girl living in the US (adopted from China) who suddenly became sick and needed a heart transplant. Her family is going through so much with finances and being away from their other children. A truly amazing story...

    Yay for Kennedy! Bryn has mastered the bum scoot in the last week, too. They change overnight, don't they?
    Sorry to hear about your tooth...good thing that didn't happen in China!

    Kennedy's bum scoot sounds so cute - you'll have to post a video clip. Way to motor, Kennedy!

    I'm a big fan of the scoot. I think our little social butterflies like having their heads up at all times so they don't miss anything! Caia's also perfected a spinarama in case anything is happening behind her. The only problem with the scoot? The wear patterns on the butt of every outfit. Oh well.

    I'm glad your trip to the dentist was relatively painless...
