Kens Kens can Talk Talk

Kenley has an ever expanding vocabulary.. since the whole point of utilizing this blog is to preserve their babyhood- the following is a sliver of her current expressions.

22 months old

Bless you
Bless me (after sneezing)
Chips (points to salt and vinegar chips)
I want some (referring to, yes.. food!)
I want that (points to toys in commercials- learned from the master- B)
I love You
Night Night
B (for Britton)
Shoes (prefers her cotton candy crocs)
boobs, and other body parts (but boobs are her favorite)

i don’t know
where’s my Bebe?


You know you’re a Red Neck If…

You know you’re a red neck if.. .Your 4 year old is talking to her Daddy on the cell phone and you hear the following conversation.

Britton- Daddy, where ahh you going?
Big Daddy- Hunting
Britton- Ahh you hunding deers or birds?
Big Daddy- Birds.
Britton- How you gonna pick dem up? You can take a dawwg wid ya to pick dem up.


We live in a golf course community, however we still seem to have a plethora of deer (mostly doe). Britton is always the first on our family to spot them- whether we are on the golf cart, or in the car- she can spot a deer for 30 yards away.

It must be in the blood.

Thank You

Today, Kenley walked with me to the car when we left her preschool classroom.

I fought back the tears- its such a simple thing, and I know most 22 months old can walk. But I felt overwhelmed with gratitude that my little girl is here with me, and can walk. She is healthy, she is happy and she is going to be FINE.

Thank you God.

That feeling of gratitude has stayed with me all day.

Tonight, amongst my attempt to finish completing today’s to do list, I felt so thankful. I thought, I wonder if our heart surgeon knows how good she is doing? I need to thank him- again.

So, I popped open my laptop and sent him the following letter via email.

Hi Dr. Bleiweis,

You and your team operated on our daughter, Kenley Robinson, this past August. She had a VSD repair (followed by Junctional Ectopic Tachycardia). I just wanted to let you know how wonderful she is doing! She is a different child now- so strong, happy and healthy. I didn’t realize how weak she really was, until I look at her now and she is just like any other toddler her age. She is off all her medications and isn’t sleeping her days away or moaning when she breathes. It’s really changed our lives.

What a great occupation to have- to be able to “fix” children’s hearts and subsequently change their lives. We are forever grateful to you for giving us our healthy baby girl back.

Thank you.

The Robinsons

More Photos

Summer 2006

While I was relabeling old posts Friday night, I noticed I had not posted as many pictures as I once thought. Since I am too tired to sync photos that I took today, here are some of “my pictures” that are in “my documents”.


I found one more thing to organize- this blog. I just spent an hour on a Friday night, labeling each post. Why, I don’t know. But I will sleep better tonight knowing that one more part of my life is in better order tonight.
