perhaps penny can bring them a little bit of luck...

crawling, what's that?

penny seems so excited by the fact that she can now pull up on things, that she's nearly abandoned crawling altogether. that was SO three weeks ago. now, mom is working full-time to make sure she doesn't seriously hurt herself, as the thing she chooses to pull up on aren't always the sturdiest (a container of wipes, zack's truck, the kitchen stools...anything, really.)

while she's tried to creep along a couple of times, we're hoping she doesn't figure out the walking thing anytime soon. but for some reason, i don't think she's going to wait until 13 months like big brother zack. ugh...

yet another beach day...

i can't resist posting pics of our trip to the beach today (we're on a roll this week), because zack and penny were so super cute. it was a tad tricky without dad there, but mom survived, thanks to her friends!

at the beach cottage...

this week, the keenan family spent a couple of days with meme and papa lou at the cottage they rented in old lyme, ct. we had a wonderful 2 days, despite the fact that zack was stung (two times) in the leg by wasps/hornets. we played on the beach, hung out in the lovely back yard, and had a great dinner out at bill's seafood, where zack loved seeing the boats and birds.

grandpa abba dabba

grandpa abba dabba (grandpa keenan) came to visit the little keenans last weekend. we all loved having him around and wish he could have stayed longer!

eight months

penelope sue, today you turn eight months old. and to celebrate, you've decided that, in addition to crawling like a madwoman, you'd also like to stand. don't you know you're too tiny to be standing!?

we love you, penny.

testing 123

zack has been a bit fresh to mom this week. not horrible, just the typical almost-two-year-old behavior, like hitting and saying NO to everything. here's a pic of my boy being sweet with mom, to remind us that life isn't all about time outs and tears.

what's up with these jeans?

dad can be silly sometimes. like how this past week, he inadvetantely crammed nearly 2 year old zack into penny's size 6 month jeans. not realizing his mistake, he then asked mom, "what's up with these jeans?!" mom couldn't resist a couple of pics...

here it is, penny's first word....messy face and all.

for someone who has been SO quiet these past 7 1/2 months, she sure does have a loud speaking voice!
