25 Randoms (including some random pictures)

1.  Kyla loves her snacks and now knows that they're in the lazy susan.  So after her nap she runs right over and tries to get a snack out.

2.  We do the little piggies with Kyla's toes all the time.  I took her to get ice cream the other night since Tyler had a meeting and I peeked back at her in the van and she was doing it to herself.  It was the most adorable thing I've ever seen.

Mmm, fruit snacks!
3.  She is a wild child in her crib in the mornings.  That explains the little bruises on her forehead.  When I go in to get her, she runs from one end to another squealing in excitement.  And once in awhile the mattress gets her and she falls.  She loves to just play in there for a good 10 minutes before she wants me to get her out.

Is it just me or does she look like she's ready to serve a volleyball overhand?  Anyone?

4.  I have been a huge slacker with Tot School, but I do have a catch-up post coming soon.

5.  It is supposed to be 97 degrees here today and a heat index of 105.  Lovely day to be big and pregnant, huh?  Needless to say, we will not be leaving the house.  I don't think I'm even going to walk to the mailbox for the mail, haha.

Such a rough life!

 6.  We're having my family (mom, step dad, dad, brothers, sister-in-law, and nieces) over on Sunday for a cookout and I'm really excited.  Amber and the girls are going out to PA for over a month because that's where her family is.  So it will be fun to get together before they leave.

Running as fast as those little legs will let her from the van to the park :)

 7.  Why is it that Kyla listens so well one minute and then is in timeout the next? 

Sorting counting bears

8.  I made a list last night for my hospital bag.  Now let's see how long it takes me to actually pack it.

9.  Tyler and I are going to our first (and only) Brewer game of the summer on Monday.  I'm really excited!  And then my ultrasound is on Tuesday.  And 4th of July on Wednesday.  What a great week!

This is from when she was sick last week.  Although I hate knowing she isn't feeling well, I love the snuggle time! 
10.  A few of you have mentioned that my baby bump pictures look like I've only gained in my belly.  Trust me, pictures are deceiving, haha.  There is a reason you don't see many full body pictures of me :)

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

11.  Is there anyone more annoying than Barbara Walters?  Yes, I DVR The View and watch it at night.  She drives me nuts.

12.  Kyla loves to wear Tyler's flip flops.  She walks around with it on and thinks it's so funny.

13.  She loves to go into our bedroom and pull my clothes out of the drawers.  Her favorite?  My bras and underwear.  And I'm not kidding, she comes out in the living room with my underwear on her head and thinks she's the funniest person in the world.  Tyler and I can't help but crack up.

14.  Can we please get a little rain?  Our grass is like walking on needles.

15.  Tyler usually takes Kyla downstairs to play at night so I get a little break.  I can always hear them both screaming and laughing and having so much fun.  And then she will not let go of Tyler the rest of the night.

16.  She can finally get up on the couch on her own.

17.  She pulls out her clippies from her hair now, which explains the wild hair in the face.

18.  I'm starting to collect recipes that can be frozen for when the baby comes so if you have any good ones, send them my way please!

19.  I think I need to do a "Pet Peeves" post soon because there are a lot of things bugging me lately.

20.  Tyler is thinking about taking a week off in July to spend with Kyla and I before the baby comes.  I'm beyond excited for that :)

21.   I'm working on teaching Kyla that it's ok to throw balls, but not other things.  It's not going so well.  Just this week she has thrown the remote and rocks at me (see #7 about timeouts).

22.   I will be turning 30 in 3 months.  I'm not going to be one of those people that freak out about it, but it is a little crazy.

23.   I think I'm going to have my niece Emma paint my toenails when she's here on Sunday.  Tyler refuses to do it and I can barely reach anymore :)

24.   I thought I would regret planting flowers outside this summer, but it has turned out to be great.  I actually love getting outside for a little bit at night to water them. 

25.  I love this little girl so much!


  1. I loved coming over here and seeing the title of your post today! :) Similar to what I did today! :) I like the idea of a "Pet Peeves" post; I have a lot that can annoy me too. ;)

    I love the picture of Kyla lounging in her chair - so cute!

    She is going to be like W; W NEVER keeps her hair in, which explains why all the pictures on my blog make her look like I never do anything with her hair.

  2. Love all the pictures!! She is s stinking cute! See ya on Sunday!


    1. Where did my o go in so?? haha

  3. I thought of you the other day because Lee and I decided that for our anniversary trip we are going back to St. Louis kid free...and the weekend we are going to be there we're going to try and see two games, and I believe I read St. Louis is playing the Brewers that weekend haha.

    Cute pics!
