Bringing Kennedy Home

Feelings, thoughts and other tidbits along the way to adopting our daughter from China.

I'm One Today!!!


Our baby is 1 year old today! Wow! She woke up in a great mood this morning, just like she knows it's going to be a great day. Yesterday, we had a party with her family on the Milligan side. Today, we will have a party with her family on the Clow side. I will post pictures as soon as I get a chance.

At the age of 1 year, here are some of Kennedy's milestones:

-Talking, saying the following words: mama, quack, bye-bye,
-Signing: more, puppy, milk, book, ball
-Trying to do some sort of bum scoot to get places. No crawling or walking yet!
-Loves to sway when she hears ANY music (including my singing!)
-Doesn't sleep through the night like she used to :( Guess I bragged too much about that!

And today we remember Kennedy's birthparents in China. I only wish they could know how happy and well taken care of she is...

    Holly camoli!!! She's actually saying words. Way to go Kennedy. All Olivia says is da da. She has started to make other sounds but no other words yet. I must start the signing with her.

    Ava says "Welcome to the 1 year old Club!" She had a huge smile when she saw Kennedy on the blog. I was thinking about Kennedy today when we read birthdays in church, and hoping you'd have something posted. Can't wait to see the birthday pics! Blessings on your special day little miss K!

    I am sure everyone had a great day and you had two wonderful parties, I am sure you were not spoiled at all!
