Kennedy finally moved out of her crib and into a toddler bed. She had pretty much stopped napping awhile ago, but I would keep her locked in her crib for 45 minutes every day. I assumed that if she was in a bed, that would go away. Fortunately, we have been able to work out a system where she *mostly* stays in her room for 35 minutes every day. She gets bribed with a show or MnM's if she makes it the whole time. She sleeps usually from 7:00-7:00 at night. So far, she has never come out of her bed once she's in it for the night so that is a huge blessing.
Kennedy really enjoys playing with her friends these days. If we spend the day with a friend (most days), she will interact with the other children the whole time and not require much from me. Of course, I have to break up arguments, make sure that she is being kind, etc, but she's a lot more engaged with her peers. She plays a ton with Violet now, and I can usually make dinner in peace. Kennedy will be started preschool in the fall two days a week 9-12 at our church, and I think that she's going to love it!

Fully potty trained including nights.
As I mentioned in Violet's post, we went to Florida this month for Jimbo and Emily's wedding. Kennedy was so cute as a flower girl. She walked down the aisle slowly and carefully, smiling at everyone over her shoulder as she walked. I'll have to do a separate post once we get all of the pictures, but we had the time of our lives! Kennedy had a blast at Disneyworld, and even enjoyed a few of the thrill rides. She LOVED meeting the characters. She's still obsessed with suited animals. She was confused by the princesses because they weren't cartoons, but still had a fun time meeting them. I am enjoying watching this girl grow so much, and I am so honored to be helping shepherd her little heart.
