Happy New Year!

I got a little lax on my blogging towards the end of the year. Kinsey is so mobile now, it's hard to keep up! Here is a little update on my sweet girl.

  • She has a new found love for her Daddy! She only wants to be around him when he's home. He was just recently home for 10 days (Paid Vacation and sick) So she got pretty used to him being home. Today he left for work and she sat at the gate saying "dada" for at least a minute or two

  • She is so close to walking it is insane!! Today alone I counted 3 times she took a step or two from the coffee table to the couch or to one of her push toys. It's coming soon I know it!
  •  The girl loves to dance! Any song that comes on the radio or the TV she is shakin her booty to it.

  • She had a blast at Christmas! Surprisingly she was really good at unwrapping presents! The good thing is we can still open boxes for days on end and it's like getting a new toy every day! 

  •  She only has 2 teeth, but she's been working hard on some more. It's kept her up for some nights but she is slowly getting back into good sleeping (thank goodness).

  • Her first Christmas had SNOW!! We were able to "play" in it for a little, until she sat in it and got her butt wet!

 Christmas Morning!
 Passed out after Christmas at Gama's house... driving to Nana and Papa's house
 Playing in the snow!
The death grip she has when he holds her now... there is no putting her down!

It is my hope to get some what caught up before her first birthday... that's in 17 days!! :( This time last year, I was a beached whale so miserable having contractions all the time!! So thankful for my precious little girl and all the joy and laughter (and tears) she brings!

Our Second Tooth!

Kinsey Brynn officially has two teeth!! After what feels like forever, Kinsey's Second tooth has broken through!! She has gone back to sleeping 10-12 hours with the occasional nurse in the middle of the night (which is way better then getting up every 2 hours screaming like she was!) I have a feeling her top 2 are coming in soon because I can see the bulges on the top. 

If you look close you can see it! :)

NO NO NO Santa

Today Michael and I took Kinsey to see Santa after eating lunch with Cousin Kenna. Let's just say she doesn't like him one bit! She cried so hard her body was shaking and her heart was racing. Michael ended up sitting with her and she still cried. At least we got her first picture with Santa. I can't wait until next year when she somewhat understands whats going on and who he is. 

 Standing by herself (she does this a lot now)
 Ready to see Santa!! (Standing on her walker... she does this a lot too)

 Eating lunch with Cousin Kenna, Aunt Ah, Mommy, and Daddy
Hating Santa. But that dress was PERFECT for today!! :)

Tomorrow we are going grocery shopping, to hobby lobby to finish birthday crafts, and hanging out because mommy has NO SCHOOL!! :)

December days 4 & 5

We are getting another tooth (only our second) so these past couple days have been crazy! I say we because I feel like I am also getting the tooth with the advil, the waking up in the middle of the night, and the constant rocking/cuddling her. I am very excited because I can see the top of it, so hopefully we are done soon!! 

 Dec. 4
Dec. 5 

Hopefully I can snatch a picture of her new tooth!! 

Kinsey's love and mine,

Third Day of December!!

Today it was 80 degrees outside... yes in December. I was nervous because most of her outfits for this month (she typically wears an outfit way more then once) are long sleeved! Then I came across this Mudpie jumper I bought from a mommy on Facebook! (Which is the best way to shop in my opinion). 

There was no taking out the Boppy this morning!

We decided to make some holiday crafts this evening after her afternoon nap. It was so much fun to craft with her! 

 The makings of a Menorah
 The beginning of her Christmas tree
 Lights and Ornaments added to the Menorah and Tree!! 

I am adding her name and the year and making more trees (hopefully) tomorrow!

Kinsey's love and mine,


December Days 1 & 2

 December 1- Santa's Little Helper
 December 2- On Auntie's Nice List
Cheesin' in her Converse! :) 

This is going to be a great month! :)
