FC: sweet.lovable.funny Kendall the 2nd year 2008-2009
1: To our sweet Kendall, The first year wasn't just new milestones for you, but unchartered territory for us as well. Papa was able to learn the actual definition of a meconium diaper, Mama learned how to ponytail 3 strands of hair, and Chewey learned to tolerate being second in line. It was a year of new experiences and a year to reorganize our responsibilities. Although the hours of the day seemed to diminish, the amount of love and happiness was magnified. As you grow, we get a closer look at your character and the person you may become. You seem to have inherited Papa's sense of humor and Mama's determination. At only 17 months old, you were so well-spoken with a 50-word vocabulary. With your infectious smile, energetic personality and care-free spirit, you seemed to teach your parents as much as we taught you. There is no operating manual for first-time parents, but if there were, you might as well throw it out the window because Papa and Mama learned primarily from on-the-job training. Thank you for helping to mold us into the parents we are today! With Love, Mama and Papa
2: VIRGINIA..............or bust! In August 2008, Kendall took her first plane ride ever to meet her buddies, Logan and Jackson Young in Hampton, VA. The kids had lots of fun playing, swimming, & eating. We went to Virginia Beach, and Kendall dipped her toes in the Atlantic Ocean for the first time. The trip was also a great opportunity for Mama and Papa to catch up with old friends, Joe and Michelle. It was like being back at Hickam AFB for just a little while...plus 3 busy babies this time!
3: While in Virginia, we got to experience a Gymboree class with 3 busy toddlers. Kendall and the boys seemed to have a blast! They climbed, rocked, hung, danced, clapped, blew bubbles, slid, and laughed. Kendall even stood all by herself for the first time! | KENDALL | Friends &

15: In Feb 2009, we flew to Florida to see Ashleigh & Nolan Clark. The Youngs also joined us, and Kendall had fun reuniting with the twins after 6 mos. It was too chilly to spend much time at the beach, but we did some sightseeing anyway. Later that week, we drove down to Tampa so that Papa could stand up in a friend's wedding. We went to Busch Gardens and rode the rides. Kendall loved dancing with her Papa at the wedding! | FL
16: Horses and... | We spent Easter at Grandpa and Grandma's house, riding horses, playing, coloring and hunting eggs. Kendall got on Spike (a "mini") without showing any fear, and didn't want to get off at the end of the ride. She made us all so proud! It was really cold that day, too. | Kendall loved helping Grandpa feed the horses. She is such a big helper...and so brave! | This year, Kendall participated in her first Easter egg hunt. Her picture was taken and printed in the Overton newspaper when she was the only child left on the lawn after the hunt...inspecting all of her loot!
