Kylee is now 3 months old and growing by the minute (or at least her cheeks are). She can hold her head up, laugh outloud, and attempts to roll from her back to stomach but hasn't been able to completely roll over yet (which is okay with me). She still smiles all time especially when she sees herself in a mirror or if Chad talks to her. We tried giving her rice cereal this past week but will probably hold off on that for a little longer. The first time I fed it to her she thought it was hilarious and wouldn't stop smiling. So needless to say, she didn't swallow much of it. And the last two pictures show just how thrilled she was to try it for a second time...haha.

Ever heard Kenny Chesney's song, "She thinks my tractor's sexy.....it really turns her on." Even though we've had this John Deere tractor for over a year now, every time John mows the grass, this song comes to mind and makes me laugh! John is even sporting a John Deere hat that he received in the mail after purchasing the tractor...lol! Chad loves going for a short ride with Daddy but I wish he had been wearing his John Deere shirt that says "Wanna ride?" Too cute!

We are so blessed to have such a wonderful daughter! Kylee has so much personality already and smiles all the time. She has even laughed outloud a few times. Although she isn't quite 3 months yet, she's got big chubby cheeks and drools all over the place.

Today was kind of a sad day for me. It was Chad's first day of his Mother's Day Out program at a local church and my first night back to work.
Last week, Chad saw his classroom and some of his other classmates and thought is was great. He played with all the toys and even colored on the paper-covered table. This morning he wasn't as thrilled about "having fun" in a new place without Mommy and Daddy. We walked him down to his room, hung his little Wall-E backpack and lunchbox on the hook and tried to make our goodbye brief. Luckily, we got out of there before I'm sure he started crying. Of course, I went home to a much quieter house and shed a few tears myself. I've been looking forward to him starting this class but I didn't realize just how much I would miss having him around. I'm sure it will get easier as the weeks progress. Plus, he only goes on Fridays from 9:15am-1pm. When I picked him up today, he was asleep with his paci and blanket in one of his teacher's arms although he woke up once we got in the car and never took another nap. I didn't get a whole lot of info from the teachers (or could rely on what Chad said) about how he was but he must have had a little fun because he colored and put stickers on a coloring page. We were all so proud of his work that we hung it on the refrigerator right away!!
Now...for my first day (or night) back at work. Well, I'm actually at work now and it's not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I'm not sure why I was so anxious to be back because I love caring for all the new mommies and babies; most all of my friends are my co-workers, and I only work two nights a week. At least I got my tears out earlier in the day so by the time I actually left for the hospital, I was fine. I haven't received any frantic calls yet from John (who's alone with the two kiddos practically for the first time) so I hope all is well. Will keep you updated....
