BFF & DA DA

Kynlie loves going to Heathers during the day. There are such sweet babies there for her to watch play. Grace (Heathers daughter) is her "BFF" They are so sweet together! Grace is always looking out for Kynlie and making sure she always has her paci in reach and she always has to give her kisses goodbye. She's such a sweet girl. These pictures of them are so cute. I love the second one, looks like Kynlie's trying to eat her.





DADA...so Kynlie is saying dada, I know she's too young to start talking but she's saying it. Of course Bradley is thrilled, me on the other hand........just kidding, I love it!! I love anything that comes out of that sweet mouth. Technically, I know it's her just making new sounds, but we like to think she's saying Dada. Next will have to be momma! The videos are a little rough, but every time I'd start to record she knew and would just stop and look at the phone.

I just love this little girl to pieces. We so thankful to be blessed with a wonderful daughter. I honestly can not get enough of her. Thank you Lord for our precious baby!

SHE DID IT!

Kynlie slept in her own bed in her own room last night, for the whole night! She didn't wake once to eat. I'm so proud of her and myself. It's been an on going battle to get her to sleep through the night in her bed also with me trying and not giving up. I really started trying last Thursday and she slept for about 3 hours, Friday she stayed in there till about 3 a.m., Saturday, well since we had a rough night to being with (see post "cried like a baby") she stayed with us in our bed the whole night, and Sunday & Monday she only slept for a few hours. Last night, I laid her down around 8:30 and I said a pray to the Lord to please let her sleep at least till midnight (I needed my sleep bad) and then I headed off to bed. I woke up around 10 ish to find that she was still sleeping, went back to bed and woke up again around 12 in a panic because I hadn't heard her cry yet and once again she was still sleeping. So this went on the rest of the night...me waking up every hour to find our sweet baby girl sound a sleep in her bed. Needless to say, I didn't get a bit of sleep last night, going in and out checking on her. However I was thanking God this morning. I just pray this is the beginning of her sleeping through the night in her bed!

Now I have to share a few phone pictures and a video that Heather has sent me yesterday and today


She looks like her daddy here

Splish Splash Kynlie was taking a bath...

(wow two post in one day)

I have to share this video of Kynlie in the bath the other night. I just love bath time right now. She's so fun to watch play. She loves to kick her feet and splash around (as you can see)

The picture of Kynlie is from my phone. Saturday I laid her down for a nap in her bed. YES HER BED...GO ME! Anyways, I laid her up and down the way you're suppose to and as you can tell this is how I found her sound asleep. Head stuck down in the mattress, snoring away, with her pacci in between her legs.



How babies manage to get in these positions, I don't know. Also, you can't really tell in this picture (I should have taken a better one) but that morning she woke up kind of early so daddy was VERY sweet to get up with her and let me sleep. Well, he was also thoughtful enough (or just thought to) get her dressed out of her sleeper. He put her onsie on backward!! It's solid pink with no print so he couldn't tell, but if you look really really close you can see how high the buttons are on her hinny. I asked if he thought it was difficult getting them snapped and he said no. At least he got her dressed! You got to love dads!

I cried like a baby...

So Brad and I had this wonderful night planned for this past Saturday. We were going to leave Kynlie with his sister and go out to eat to my favorite restaurant Pappadeaux. The night started out pretty good. We were all on time getting ready and I had Kynlie all ready and pack to go. A little change of plans happened, his sister called and asked us to drop her off with his parents at the church and then she'd be there later. So we did... We got there and Brad's dad went to get her out of her car seat and she started to cry and cry and cry some more. So I took her and calmed her down and handed her back to him, she cried again. I'm thinking she knew we were about to leave her. So I took her back and of course she calmed down in my arms. Then I handed her off to his mom and she just gave me that sad little face and started to cry, so what happened next...I started to cry. I hate seeing her that upset, much less leaving her that upset. We left (me still crying), but we didn't get far, our plans changed really fast and we went and ate at Chili's in town and then went and pick up our sweet baby. I couldn't take it anymore. We have not ever left her to go out before. Of course I leave her everyday to go to work and then I've left her with my mom to go shopping but never have we dropped her off in public somewhere to go out. I feel like such a baby. I know Brad and I need our time together, but I just couldn't get that said face out of my mind. Maybe next time!

New Cell Phone Picture

I have to share this one picture that Heather just sent me on my phone. I love that smile. She's so happy. Thanks to Mrs. Heather. A side note... Heather is a wonderful babysitter and I feel so blessed to have become great friends with her and know she's taking wonderful care of my sweet girl.

5 Months

So our little stinky is 5 months old. She's doing so much more new things lately. She's really wanting to crawl, she can go backwards scooting, but can't make it forwards yet. She's holding everything she can get her hands on. She tries to grab the spoon when I'm feeding her to feed her self, she loves my cell phone and the remote (just like her daddy).
We didn't have a very good Valentines day in our house. Brad and I both had the flu, so we didn't do anything but stay in and try and get well. BUT my sweet husband did remember even though he was so sick and ordered me flowers and they arrived Saturday morning. I love him! I'm a good wife too...his b-day was Friday and I managed to get him a present, nothing much but it's what he asked for...a dart bored for the garage. He loved it!
Back to Kynlie... This little girl thinks I love to play at 3 AM. I don't! She'll wake up and start talking and yelling, I look at her and all she does is smile and turn away. I'm sure if she was in her own bed I wouldn't know this, but she's with us! She can now pick up her pacci and put it in her mouth, it doesn't always get in there the right way, but she's trying. I love watching her try. She is sitting up own her own now and playing. She falls over every now and then still, but for the most part she's doing on her own. I'm so proud!
Here are some great pictures I've taken over the last few weeks. Enjoy


These are on the day she turned 5 months, Super Bowl Sunday (and her SHHH I'm Huntin Cowboys outfit),in her highchair and one of when she fell a sleep on her toys one morning, and the last few pictures are of our sweet girl in a very cute outfit that was made for her. Her party outfit! And random pictures...

Sleeping Beauty

A short blog today. I wish I had a picture to share. This morning after I got ready for work I went to get Kynlie up from bed and I just stood there and stared down at her. She looked so perfect laying there sound a sleep, dreaming away. I didn't want to wake her so I stood there for a while and just watched her sleep. She's beautiful and I love every minute I get to take in these little moments. She makes me smile so much!

Short update

Not much going on here. Kynlie will be 5 months old tomorrow. I can't believe it...doesn't seem that long ago since I had her.
We've tried banana's to eat this past week. I can't tell if she really likes them or if she still hasn't figured out the eating process. She doesn't make the same faces as she does with the applesauce.
We are working on getting her in her bed at night. (YES...she still sleeps with us)I love her next to me, but it's really time for her to be in her own space. This has not been an easy job. She doesn't last long in her bed before she starts crying....and I mean CRYING. It's a very sad "pick me up" cry. I'm doing what the doctor says and I let her cry for about 10 to 15 minutes, but it's the hardest thing I do. I know one day it will work and she'll be sleeping soundly in her bed. If you have any tips, please send them my way!
Here are two pictures from my phone. (I haven't been able to get my camera pictures uploaded...again) so the cell phone pictures will do for now. The first one is a outfit that a friend of mine got for her and it's just so cute. It's a little blurry but it says "Shhhh...I'm Hunting Cowboy's". The second one is one that Heather took and sent to me. She's sleeping in the pack-n-play. She looks so sweet!
