Currently (the Kendra edition)

Kendra Noel (also know as sassafras, sissy, miss sassy pants and sister belle)

Currently she is:

Loving: all this unseasonably warm weather! This girl could live in dresses and bikinis and she is so happy to have been able to wear them so often. She has been on our new swing set constantly and has mastered the art of the squirt gun fight. Yeah, we have two squirt guns so two guesses as to who always ends up soaked! Me!

Disliking: all this crazy schedule changing that has been going on with Daddy's work. To be honest, none of us at home really like it all that much. :(

Craving: Okay, well this girl loves to eat, but some of her favorite snacks right now are apples, bananas, watermelon, pirate booty and turkey pepperoni.

Wanting: Well, she wants anything. Just like her momma, take her to a store, no matter what store it may be and she will find something. ;) In all seriousness, she really has been loving anything Hello Kitty for sometime now and she is still asking me to get her ears pierced. Oh, and let's not forget her wanting a diamond ring because , as she says, " I don't have one, though, Mommy". I had to wait a lot of years for mine, child, so you will be waiting too!

Listening to: Anything her brother says. Oh my. She is full of it. I can not believe some of the things she says. We will save that for a different post because I could fill this page with some of the hilarity that has been coming from her, lately. I catch her quite often making up songs and I like to peek in and listen when she doesn't know I am there. It doesn't get any sweeter than that!

Her Favorite things are: Heels. No joke. It is no secret that my child loves heels. I honestly don't know where she gets it from. I have a little bit of a purse obsession but not shoes. This is all her own thing. If you follow me on instagram I am sure you have seen plenty of photos of Kendra with "her" shoes. She has been known to search through my closet for the "perfect pair" to match. And gosh darnit, if she really doesn't come out with the perfect pair everytime. That girl really can coordinate and she knows exactly what she wants! Every morning when I got to get her out of bed she generally has already been up and picked out shoes and is wearing them. She then proceeds to ask if she can go to my closet and pick out heels since hers are broken. Every.single. morning. It has become our routine. How can a 2.5 year old love shoes this much?! She asked me just the other day why she didn't have green shoes to match her dress. I said white would do just fine. She looked at me and said she needed shoes in every color for her shoe closet. Um, since when do you have a shoe closet? She was simply referring to her closet. :)
When we pulled up to the beach house last weekend the first thing she asked was if there would be high heels for her to wear. When I said no, she then asked if any of the girls had packed some that she could borrow. Good thing I was thinking and I did pack a pair just for her. :)

Starting at a young age (this was last year)
Brother's cowboy boots three sizes too big! She literally wore the soles off of one.

She keeps me on my toes and makes me laugh so much. I wouldn't change a single thing about her. So blessed to be her mommy, even if it is giving me a head full of gray hair. For reals, guys, I am going gray at the ripe old age of 28. :(

  3. WHAT A CUTIE! This is so sweet! We're struggling with Erik's work schedule around here as well. After school today I had to drive Avery to Portland to see Erik because she was crying about how she never sees him. I drove 20 minutes out of the way so she could give him a hug and a kiss. : ) But all was better after that.

  4. A sweet post Ashley! I loved reading all about your adorable little Kendra. Her shoe obsession is funny, you have a girly girl on your hands for sure!
