This kiddo has made it through 730 wonderful days on this Earth! They have been the most fulfilling, entertaining and challenging 730 days of my life. 😉
Kensie is freaking hilarious, sassy, sweet and way too smart for her own good. Last month I updated you guys on how great we are as parents since our 2 year old knows the term “oh shit”, and this month I unfortunately have to admit that she also uses it in the correct context. Her cousin missed a goal at her soccer game…”oh shit”. Dropped her chalk and it broke…”oh shit”. 🤦🏼♀️ You get the picture.
In other news, KENSIE EATS FOOD NOW! For me. Not just at daycare. Grapes, strawberries, bananas, yogurt, pizza, salmon, mac n cheese, PB sandwiches…Okay I didn’t say the healthiest foods but this is serious progress. Those that have followed our blog the past 2 years know how happy this makes me! 🤗 She also loves to “cheers” every drink she has. KB is gonna crush college.
Her 2 year check up showed a perfectly healthy little nugget, and I do mean little. She’s in the 8th percentile for height so they predict she will be about 5’4″ and she moved up to 35th percentile in weight at 24 whopping pounds!
KB has such a fun personality and is Miss Independent. She has an obsession with “zappatos” (shoes) and still loves her rainboots. I have to hide them frequently so that she will pick out something else on occasion. K prefers her hair in pigtails and when I only do one pony, she hands me another hairband and tells me “uno mas?” 💁🏼♀️ Luckily she still lets me pick out her clothes and loves putting them on. She’s showing a lot of interest in the potty and will randomly tell us in time to actually use it! (I know you all care.)
She’s already playing the Mommy v. Daddy card which I was not expecting just yet!! 😳 If I won’t let her do something/have something she immediately asks for Daddy and vice versa (or even Aunt Shell, because she always says yes, LOL). Parenting just got a whole lot more fun!
K is chatting up a storm in both English and Spanish. She loves to sing the beginning of ABC’s, the entire Happy Birthday song (she sang it to herself at her family birthday party once we finished singing to her…haha!), and a few lines from country songs on the radio! Her favorite song by far is the clean up song – and it is also one of my favorite character traits she possesses (and Chris, we know she got this one from ME! 🙌🏼) – she cleans up EVERYTHING and if you ask her to clean up she gladly puts things away and sings “clean up, clean up, everybody, everywhere…” you get the picture. And you’re welcome for getting that song stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
She is LOVING daycare and asks to go see her friends, by name, every single day. Especially Nana (daycare teacher), because she has way better juice than mommy 🙄…She tells me Kensie is constantly summoning people and cleaning up after everyone. Kens pushes in chairs, closes doors and puts things away. What a great helper!
Kensie loves to do puzzles on her tablet and name animals and objects. My favorite is “daddy’s truck” and my car…which she has named “home” since I always say “Kensie, are you ready to go home?” when we get in it…LOL! She has FINALLY started watching things other than Baby Einsteins. She loves the lullaby cartoons with ducks and horses and of course the infamous Baby Shark song and dance.
Bubbles, Balloons and Airplanes are her 3 favorite things and she is a creature of routine. She loves walking and feeding the dogs (thank God she reminds us), bubble baths and brushing her own teeth. They’re probably filthy though since she refuses to let anyone help. Good thing this set will fall out. 😬 Ha!!
She knows when the lights go out at night we sing our song and say our prayers and I always ask her to name a friend she wants to pray/be thankful for. I usually get a rotation of HenRo, Jeyleen, Layla, Ava and Jordy, but last night she let her balloon go and it floated off in to the sky and she decided we should pray for “bye bye balloon, all gone”. So, there’s that.
And last but not least, she’s still making her daily gains in the gym. She loves swinging from the rings and copying all the warm ups. She’s mastered the barbell Snatch and recently taken a liking to Kettlebell swings. She’s got a solid Split Jerk too…though she prefers just pushing the mop bucket around and convincing people to take her outside to look for airplanes. When she’s not working out, you can usually find her Assistant Coaching.
Kensie is way too much personality to put into one post…but I think this sums it up for her memories pretty dang well. KB, you have the absolute BEST friends and family and you are so loved!!! We’re so proud of the little girl you’re becoming and beyond grateful to be your parents! Happy 2nd Birthday, BeBop!!!!
