happy thanksgiving!

This year for Thanksgiving, we finally were able to celebrate with family! (the past few years daddy and/ or I have had to work, and with the traveling to be with family it was never possible)  So this year, mommy's family came out to our house and we celebrated!   We had Grandma and Grandpa Meyer, and aunts Jenny, Katy and Ali, also mommy's aunt and uncle Sara and Bill joined us, and cousin Mark and his girlfriend, Katy. We were only missing 2 members of out of our 2 families, Uncle John and cousin Lauren, we missed both of the very much!  We all gathered in our, small little house, and yes it was crowded, but we still had a very fun and memorable time (and enjoyed some yummy food!)  The rest of the weekend was spent pretty low key, then Sunday we finished up celebrating Thanksgiving with daddy's side of the family down at Grandma and Grandpa Thornsbrough's, with Uncle Kory, and daddy's aunt and uncle Debbie and Barry.  Another fun celebration!

A few pictures from the holiday weekend!

15 months!

oh my goodness, I can't not believe it has been 15 months since K has graced this world with her presence!  She is so much fun to be around, and let me just say she is not always our sweet little k, she has developed quite the attitude!

She loves  to say "no! " , yet she does it in quite the adorable way, she kind of shakes her head and scrunches her little face up and says "nooooo, nooooo"   Hopefully she outgrows this stage of saying no to pretty much everything!

She had her 15 month check up last week, and is quite the big girl!  26lbs 12oz {90%}, 30 inches{50%},and her head still measures above the 97% (full of brains!) Of course her fifteen month check up included the dreadful shots, seriously they don't get any easier (for me or K!) and Dr. Bob found that K had the start of an ear infection :(  Her first one, and he caught it ahead of time so we treated it and she didn't seem to bothered by it, thankfully!

K still only has her 2 bottom teeth, but over the weekend, Grandpa Meyer {her dentist :) } said he thought it looked like the top two were ready to pop through, and sure enough we noticed one cutting through yesterday!  It is impossible to look inside of her mouth though, she fights us on it!

A few more fun things she says now:
"go-go!" (thanks to watching college football!)
"i love you" (She used to only repeat daddy on this one, but now says it all the time!)
"Minnie" (the girl loves Minnie mouse)

She walks, runs, and can climb the flight of stairs in the blink of an eye!

She loves to dance still, and we can say "shake it " and she shakes her butt from side to side, and then we can say "drop it" and she drops her butt to the floor...ha ha!!  No idea where she picked up these dance moves, but it is quite the entertainment!

Enjoy a few pictures of our beautiful Kiley!

tub time!

Well we had an eventful" bath night tonight!  For the second time, Kiley pooped in the tub (gross I know, but when it is your own child, it doesn't seem so bad.)  Anyway I thought I would document our little memory we shared tonight!  Thank god Kyle was home when it happened so he could hold onto our wet little girl as I drained and refilled the tub.  Luckily it happened at the start of her bath, and before all of her toys made it in the water.

Despite tonight's episode, Kiley still very much enjoys her baths!   Although now she spends most of the time standing in the tub!!


 loves to play with the water! (and stand in the tub!)

kiley's message to her daddy!

Daddy was away in Des Moines for work earlier this week and we decided to send him a video message from K!   An accumulation of some of her words she loves to say!
