It's been awhile!

You'd think since I haven't blogged in 3 months, I'd have a lot of exciting things to share.  But we're just kind of chugging away with our normal, every day lives.

Kenley is now 4 1/2 months and cuter than ever!  At her 4 month checkup she was 15 lbs 3 oz (72%) and 25 1/4 inches (82%).  She is such a happy baby!  She rolls like crazy from both sides, started sitting in her bumbo seat recently, has started in her jumper but only likes it for a couple minutes, loves to smile and laugh at her big sister, loves her nukies now (she wasn't a fan for the first couple months), has started reaching and grabbing at toys, eats about 6 ounces every couple hours, goes to bed at 8:00 every night and wakes up anywhere from 4-6 am, has a bottle and goes back to sleep for a couple more hours, usually will take two good naps a day, but sometimes more little cat naps, she loves to go for walks and just loves attention!

Here's a look back since I have been slacking at the updates!

Pretty cute, right?  Seriously though, her smile is so awesome!

Kase is turning 3 this month and has his checkup in a couple weeks.  Here are some pictures of him, which recently are hard to come by.  He is way too busy for pictures!

In June, he fell and cut his chin open and got stitches.  It was the worst experience ever.  He had to be held down by 3 people while the doctor did the stitches.  And then the same when he had them removed.  This picture is when they decided to give him (and everyone else) a break.  This was after about an hour and a half and they still needed to do one more stitch.  It broke my heart to have to put him through that :(

This is when I took him back to have them removed.  He remembered what happened the last time we were there and would not take his face out from my neck.  I think he is forever scarred from the doctor.  Poor guy!

Here is my happy boy again with a fresh new haircut!

Kyla is 4 1/2 and MORE than ready to start school.  She is starting to get bored being home with me all day.  She's ready to get out and meet some new friends!  She has been a great helper and loves to take care of her baby sister.

I took her to her first movie at the theater and then we did some shopping.  Girl loves her accessories!

She's been working hard on the monkey bars!

Jacket and pants in July?  Crazy!

On Sunday we had a little town festival and Kyla wanted to play the game where you throw a ping pong ball and try to get it into a glass bowl to win a fish.  Well, to our surprise, she somehow managed to win THREE fish!  They are still going strong two days later.  We went to the store and bought fish food and she has loved taking care of them!

Update:  At 2:00 pm today (shortly after publishing this post), we lost a "Goldy".  Kyla is sleeping right now and is going to be devastated when she wakes up :(

Tyler is busier than ever at work and continues to be the most amazing dad ever!

Last time I posted I weighed 169 and was working on losing the baby weight.  Well, I'm still working on it, but as of this morning I am 157.  I'm getting there slowly but surely!  12 pounds in 3 months is ok with me.  I'm hoping to get to 145 so maybe in 3 more months I will be there!  Let's hope that I blog again before that though :)

I also chopped my hair off.  It was much needed!

She curled it a little bit and I have since tried that a few times, but most days I just straighten it or put it up in pony.  It's actually already grown a lot since this picture.  I got it cut end of June I think.

The next month is going to be a lot busier than we're used to and is going to bring some exciting changes.  Kyla starts four year old kindergarten on September 1st.  She will go Monday through Thursday from 8-11 and then one Friday a month.  The school district that we chose has their 4K program in various daycares instead of in the schools.  I'm sure it has something to do with not having room at the schools since the program is fairly new.  But also it is much more convenient since it's only three hours a day and many families probably need childcare for the rest of the days.  So the kids already being at the daycare is really nice.

We are pretty sure we are going to take Kase to the same place and have him attend the 3 year old preschool on Monday's and Wednesday's from 8-11.  I think it will help him so much socially and developmentally.  Many daycares will not take 3 year olds who are not potty trained, but thankfully, this one will.  Obviously I'm hoping to get him trained soon, but he's just not ready.  And I am a firm believer in not pushing them until they are truly ready.  I could (and may) do a whole separate post on this and other Kase updates later in the month.  Can't believe he's going to be 3!

I am also working on a little project with one of my favorite blogger friends that I can't wait to tell you all about very soon! :)
