The Princess and the Frog

So this is one of, if not, the only time you will ever hear me refer to Kylee as a princess, but I HAD to for the movie reference!! Today Kyle found a frog in the backyard. We took Kylee out to see it and at first she didn’t know what to think but after a little getting used to it, she wanted it like everything else she’s not allowed to have!

You got me a new toy?!?!?!?!

What is it?

It touched me!!!  Dad!!!!!

You’re gunna pay for that now…

Just barely missed…

Miss, attack dog, help me!!!


8 Months

Oh the joys and affliction of living with a crawling child… I’m pretty sure I’ve vacuumed more in the last month than I did all of last year!

It’s almost like the second Kylee turned 7 months, she decided she wanted to do everything.  She started getting around on her own, she sat up from her belly onto her bottom, and she started using EVERYTHING to stand up on.  And oh my she can get into almost anything; she climbed into my suitcase as I was unpacking and we walked into the kitchen the other day and she had climbed onto the dishwasher lid.

This month has been HUGE!  The biggest being that Kylee learned to crawl, of course.  She started out scooting around but when we were on our trip she just decided to start crawling instead! It’s so funny because when she is crawling or walking she will stick her tongue out while trying to concentrate.   Also while we were there she started reaching for people when she wanted to go to them.  Even now she will crawl to our feet and pull when she wants to be picked up.  She started flexing her fingers in a waving motion but we can’t get her to actually wave hi or goodbye to anyone yet.  She just does it randomly.  She crawls to stuff and stands up all the time, but her favorite thing to go to is electronics.  If she sees my laptop opten she jets for it.  She also likes to play with the buttons on our audio and video stuff for the TVs.

When it comes to being a parent, I’m learning as we go but what I know for sure is it keeps getting better and better.

I LOVE some of the faces she makes!

Happy 4th of July!!!

Greetings from hot and humid Oklahoma City!!!  We are on a road trip traveling to see everyone on Kyle’s side of the family now.  We have been running around like crazy but I had to post some pictures of Kylee and Lexie for everyone to see them in their red white and blue!
