A Half-Dozen …

… fun facts about Kennah:

1. Her first name is the Irish feminine form of “Kenneth,” which means “handsome.” Her middle name is Maire—a playful spelling variation (also Irish) on the name Mary, which features prominently in her ancestry.

2. She loves Cinderella (the movie—and the many books we’ve found based on the traditional tale).

3. The above image—which I call “Sleeping Beauty” (I know, wrong princess)—is one of my favorite photos I have ever taken of her. Here, she is 3 1/2 years old and totally sacked out (in all of her finery, mind you) just before her cousin’s San Diego wedding.

4. Her personality can best be summed up by the slogan on a Tinkerbell T-shirt given to her by another cousin: “Sassy but Sweet.” (Which, by the way, is essential to her survival in a house full of brothers.)

5. Her favorite color is pink—or, more precisely, Pinkalicious, as in the book by Victoria and Elizabeth Kann. To hear her “read” (a k a “recite from memory”) the book, click the audio button below:

6. She is 5 years old today! Happy birthday, Pretty Princess!

It sounds like you are going to have two fun-filled days with mommy and friends. I loved hearing the story. You did very well. Hope to see you soon.

That picture is absolutely precious! Its sweetness perfectly sums up her personality. Strawberry Shortcake was the perfect theme for her party. We had a nice time and enjoyed seeing you girls. Next time we’ll see all the boys, too.
P.S. Those shoes Kennah is wearing look awfully familiar! 🙂

Yes, Wendy! Kennah LOVED (and terribly misses) what she calls her “wedding shoes,” now that she’s outgrown them. She was eyeing a new pair just the other day. 🙂
