Amazing little Kenna

Well, as the time ticks away, we're really starting to come to the realization that things will never be the same (in a good way of course). We're already half-way through the month of January, and it feels like we still have a ton of stuff to do before the arrival of Kenna's little brother. This past weekend we were able to move everything out of the office and set up the crib in the new baby's room. We also bought some furniture, but now its just a matter of setting it up in the room. Kenna appeared to be in shock when she saw the crib in the other room. Its obvious she doesn't quite know what's going on, but it'll be interesting to see how things change with her once she figures out that she's not the only baby in the house...

As of late, Makenna's been doing her thing, making us laugh and amazing us every now and then. Last night, while watching her favorite Barney episode, we noticed that she was making repeated attempts at standing on her own. It looked inadvertent, so I helped her out, and when she wasn't paying attention, I let her go. She stood up on her own for a good minute, before she lost balance and landed on her butt. I kept pushing her to continue, and was able to feel her legs quivering while she maintained her balance. She got tired, maybe because it was right around her bedtime, but we'll continue to help her out some more. Those first steps are just around the corner, we can feel it. We don't want to push too much, but at the same time, it'll be fun to see her up on her own two feet!
