father's day

As little K and her daddy are upstairs napping, I figured I would take some time to blog about Kyle's first father's day!  We didn't do much, went to church in the morning and just relaxed, but we did take little K swimming at a friend's home!

sleep is a good thing!

well our little sleeper is back! (knock on wood!)  she has been sleeping like a champ and I am soooo happy with her new found love of sleep!  honestly for only a few nights did I make her cry it out after I laid her down, but now she doesn't even make a fuss!  We have really tried to stick to around 8 for her to go down and she usually sleeps until 7.30 at least! 
Oh and by the way, tomorrow we have a 10 month old!!!   : )

Party Planning!

I have started the thought process for Kiley's 1st birthday!! It is amazing to think it is about 2 months away, which I am sure the 2 months will fly by!  Even just thinking about the 1st birthday has me overwhelmed, but it is going to be SO MUCH FUN! I can not wait!  Today I decided that I am not going to do a theme per say, but I am going to stick to a color theme..the colors i am thinking are hot pink, purple, lime green and aqua....her outfit I plan on having her wear is my inspiration! :)  But that will be a surprise for party day!  We will more then likely have 2 parties, one out here in IL and one back in WDM...that way we can have all of who love little K  be a part of her special day!!

A few pictures of my ideas!!

9 months!

We are officially 3/4 done with Kiley's 1st year of life.  Where did that time go? It is just amazing how much she has changed over this past 9 month!  She is such a joy to be around and every single day is better then the day before. 
A little about Kiley at 9 months:
* weighs in at 20lbs 11 oz (75th percentile)
*stands "tall" at 27 inches (25th percentile)
*loves to clap!
*still have NO teeth yet
*eats 2-3 baby food meals a day, still nurses (and has a few bottles of formula a week to supplement my lack of supply when it comes to pumping)
*loves snacks (puffs, yogurt melts, baby mum mums,  baby cookies/cheetos (as i call them)  and every other baby snack that Gerber makes!
*says "mamamama" and "dadadadada"
*is somewhat in the stanger anxiety phase (especially if I am around she ONLY wants me)
*army crawls and rolls her self around the place, still not hands and knees crawling (I think she may skip that step all together and just start walking)
*will "walk" when you hold her arms and walk around with her
*is still very much obsessed with her dinasour she rides

She is just perfect and we love every part of her!  Everyday keeps getting better with our sweet little k!
