Water Baby?

Cameron had to work on Thanksgiving this year so, Kyle and I took a little road trip.  We went up to Utah County to spend Thanksgiving with my side of the family.  I was amazed at how well Kyle did, she really didn't cry until we got to Orem (after about 5 hours of driving).  I have gotten very talented at reaching back and putting the binky in her mouth while driving! haha  Don't worry I only did it if we were stopped or there were no other cars around for miles. 

We stayed at a hotel in Sandy to have our Thanksgiving festivities and of course, I didn't take any photos of the actual holiday.  I did take Kyle swimming!  Cameron and I are huge water people so, we obviously need to have children that also love the water.  The pool at the hotel was a tad on the colder side so I was worried that Kyle wouldn't like it. 
Kyle didn't seem to notice the large body of water around her.  She was still just hanging out.  That's one thing we have noticed about Kyle, for the most part she is a pretty chill baby.  She lets us drag her every where and doesn't seem to mind unless she's extremely tired or hungry.  We sure do love this little girl!

Here are some other photos, just for fun!

The Big Cheese

So, once Kyle started smiling I have had this plan, I would film the smile as well as get a picture of it and post it on our blog/ scrapbook.  Good idea right?  Yeah, I thought so too!

I'm having so much fun!
I see you got the camera out...

 At least I tried right?

Apple Cider and Caramel Apples

Last week we decided that the adults of our family needed to have some fun.  We went over to Braeden and Alisha's house for some good old fashioned fun'!  Once Kyle and Dylan finally fell asleep we started cooking!  We had hot apple cider and caramel apples.  We had been trying to get together prior to Halloween so that we could carve pumpkins too but, we didn't quite make it in time (mine and Cameron's un-carved pumpkins are still sitting on our porch).  So we just scratched pumpkin carving off of our list and stuck with food stuff!  We tried a caramel recipe Alisha found on pinterest, the caramel and chocolate kept falling off the apples but, in the end they still tasted great!

The finished product, as you can see the toppings are falling off...
Obviously, I can't write a post without a photo of Kyle.  She's getting so big it's crazy, I can't believe she's been with us for a little over 2 months, 10 weeks to be exact!
Kyle smiles all the time now, except when there's a camera around.

Surprise, surprise, Kyle was ready for her nap!

Happy Halloween!!

     Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays!  I love having creative costumes, getting dressed up and obviously, the chocolate!  This year was a little different because we had little Kyle here to celebrate with us.  I wanted to do a costume that included all 3 of us and after much debate we were able to come up with me as Peter Pan, Kyle as Tinkerbell, and Cameron as Rufio (from Hook).  We had a lot of fun making these costumes together and hopefully this will continue to be a tradition for many years to come.

Luckily for us, my parent came into town the weekend before Halloween and they were able to watch Kyle while Cameron and I went to the ICU Halloween party.  Cameron, even won the award for "Most Original Costume".

 Kyle also had her 2 month check up on Halloween and she is getting so big!!  She weighs 8lbs 6oz and is 21 inches long.  This puts her in the 4th percentile for weight and the 7th percentile for height.  Even though she is still quite small her doctor is pleased with her growth.  Kyle also had to get her first set of shots at this appointment.  It was so sad to see her go from playing and kicking the MA's to screaming in pain.  She only cried for about 3 minutes and then she sort of collapsed in my arms and made the saddest little whimper I've ever heard.

Kyle has been such a sweet little girl and we feel so lucky to have her with us!  She is starting to smile at us and it is so fun.  I haven't been able to capture a photo of it yet but, hopefully I can soon.  She is a little spoiled and she really likes to be held and cuddled all the time.  I always said I wouldn't be one of those moms that holds their baby all the time but, I find it very hard to put her down.  So, Kyle may turn into a spoiled turd and I only have myself to blame but, how can I say no to that cute face??
