4 Month Comparison

When I posted Kylee's 4 month pictures she hadn't gone to the doctor's yet so here are her latest stats: 14 lbs 15 oz (75%tile)and 25 1/2 inches long (90%tile). At 4 months, Chad weighed in at a whopping 18 lbs 5 oz and 26 1/2 inches long (both >90%tile). These pictures were taken when they were both 4 months old....I think there's a bit of a resemblance!!

Balloon Fun!

This week has been full of birthdays! We celebrated my brother's and John's birthday last Sunday. Then my niece's 2nd birthday party was yesterday and our friend's twin girls had their 2nd birthday party at Holland Park this afternoon. All the kids got to take home a Blue's Clue's balloon so Chad was sooooo excited. When we got home, Kylee was sitting in the Bumbo and Chad started "whacking" the balloon with a foam paddle. Kylee thought it was the most hilarious thing so we had to take a video of them cracking each other up!

Stonycreek Farm and Pumpkin Patch

Today we took advantage of the gorgeous weather and went to Stonycreek Farm and pumpkin patch for the first time. Chad loved playing in the dirt, climbing the haystacks, and throwing hay at us and the camera everytime we tried to take a picture. Needless to say, we did come home with four great pumpkins and one worn out little boy. Kylee was great too! She was in a snugli carrier either sleeping or just being content.

Oh the joys of accessorizing a baby girl...


The reason I don't have many pics of Chad anymore...
he won't sit still long enough!

Kylee is 4 Months Old

I can't believe it has already been 4 months since we welcomed little Kylee Alexis into this world. And a year ago yesterday that we found out I was pregnant. Whew...where does the time go? Kylee is changing and growing everyday. She is a pro at rolling from her back to belly now. So much in fact, that everytime we put her down on her playmat, she almost immediately rolls over, entertains herself for a little bit, then starts fussing because now she is stuck on her belly (even though she has rolled from belly to back before). Kylee can also sit in the Bumbo chair and plays in the exersaucer and rainforest jumperoo. We started feeding her rice cereal about 2 weeks ago and somedays she really loves it, and other days, not so much. I'm sure this is very normal for her age, its just very different from how her brother was. I swear Chad came out wanting to eat steak and potatoes!

I have to again thank one of my coworkers who gave me a ton
of her daughter's clothes, one of which was this adorable sweatshirt!

Good Times on a Cloudy Day

Kylee rolled from her back to her belly a couple weekends ago but has not done it since. And John and I both missed it because I was sleeping from working the night before and John was in the kitchen fixing Chad a snack. I'm sure this won't be the last time we miss one of her "firsts" because we're busy with Chad. Although a few days ago she rolled from her belly to her back several times while I was watching. I think she's going to be quite the little mover:)
How sweet! Chad was actually acknowledging that he
has a sister and she may want to see what he's playing with.
(his newest "Ki Ki Meow Meow"-not sure why he calls it that)
Kylee looks a little scared here
So precious!!! Even if they're not looking at the camera
Chad always makes Kylee smile
Cute pic of Kylee but what's with Chad's big toe in the corner?
There's that smile and drool:)Chad grabbed the camera and took a pic of himself
And then of Kylee and I (and it actually turned out pretty good)
