Christmas in Cali

I am sorry it has been so long since my last blog, but the holidays are so busy! This year we all went down to California for Christmas. I flew down with Kennedy and Christian drove down with my brother, Jayson. We had a lot of fun there. We even got to go up to Lake Arrowhead like old times. It was so pretty up there and we got to shop, eat and drive around town for a few hours. Christian and I got lost on the way home and ended up in a place called Beaumont. We eventually found our way back 2 hours later. haha!

Well, besides going out of town, we have just been up to the same old things. Kennedy is so much fun now. She laughs, plays, grabs at her toys and has a lot of fun in her new exersaucer she got for Christmas. I am sure I have missed a lot of things since I have not written in a while, but I will be sure to write more often from now on. I hope you all had a Merry Christmas. Happy New Year too!

California Trip

Kennedy with daddy on Halloween

Kennedy is only 2 months old and she is already a seasoned traveler! We spent the past week in California for my best friend's wedding and to see family. She was so good on the plane both ways and everyone loved her as usual. In California, Kennedy started to talk a lot more often. I think it was because her uncles and grandparents gave her so much attention. She is just full of new, fun noises!

Emily, my best friend, was married on a beach in Encinitas on Saturday. The view was so pretty and Em was a beautiful bride. I took a few photos, but hopefully she will send me som more when she gets them because she took some cute ones with Kennedy.

The next day, we all went to see grat grandma and grandpa Burt (and great great grandma Marie) to take a 5 generation picture and to visit. I had a lot of fun seeing my grandparents. Grandma was even nice enough to make a us a good dinner while we were there. We loved our visit to L.A. and we hope we can do it again soon.
The other ictures I have posted are from Halloween. Kennedy was a cute little ladybug. Of course she was too young to trick or treat, but she looksed cute anyway! I guess that is all I have for now. I will post more later!

Trip to Texas

Hello everyone! I am sorry it has been so long since my last blog, but I have been busy in Texas with my family. I had soooo much fun too! Christian was not able to go because he had to go with his company to Las Vegas. He gets to go with me in April though so that will be fun. Kennedy and I got to go and see grammy Bee (Lori), grampy Bee (Mark), aunt Krystle and Uncle kyle. We got to do a lot of fun things too! We went shopping for some new clothes (even though Kennedy has enough to last her a couple of years),went to Uncle Kyle's football game and even went to the Kemah boardwalk for some rides and a haunted house. (Kennedy stayed outside with grandpa).

Krystle and Kyle loved Kennedy, but who wouldn't? She is so sweet and cute. People on the airplane even clapped for her because she was so good. She is smiling now and I can't get enough of it. I still can't seem to catch one on camera, but I'm sure I will soon. She was so cute at the ward Halloween party! I am so sad that I forgot my camera, but I will take some pictures of her on Halloween. She didn't seem to fit in any of the costumes for babies, so I dressed her in a cute pumpkin onesie with black pants and a little witch hat. She looked so adorable!

Well, I guess that is all for now. We are off to California on Thursday for my friends wedding so I will be sure to post some pictures of that. Christian is sad that there are no pictures of him so I will take some of him with the baby soon and post them. haha!

Schedules...or not

She wont wake up this morning!

So, I really need advice from other moms out there! I was doing so great (or so I thought) at getting a sleeping schedule down for Kennedy. In fact, she slept all the way through the night on Wednesday. I was so happy and rested and I felt like all scheduling problems had been solved...I WAS SO WRONG! Last night, she kept me up all night and now she has been sleeping since 9:00 am and wont wake up for anything. Not even food! I dont know what to do. I am so tired and I feel like she is falling back into an old schedule. Someone help me please!

Scheduling problems aside, she is still a good baby. She loves to go for walks in the stroller. She looks around at everything and stays very entertained. I have to dress her up warm now because it is getting cold here in Utah now.

Besides being extreemly tired, I am doing well also. I just wish I knew what I was doing better. Christian is leaving for Dallas tomorrow for business so it will just be me and the baby. I leave for Houston on Tuesday so it will still be just me and the baby. Hopefully my family will want to stay up late with her instead of me...right family? : )

Baby Talk

My sweet baby
I am so tired!

This week has been so much fun! Kennedy started talking back to me...well, if cooing counts as talking. It is so cute to see what gets her excited. She especially likes when I make noises with my toungue and when she lays over my knees practically upsidedown. I love that she can interact with me now. Still no smiles yet, but hopefully that will come soon.

Besides playing with Kennedy and trying to get chores done while she sleeps, I have tried to get out of the house as much as I can. On Tuesday night, we all got to meet My aunt Mary and cousin along with my great aunt Fern for ice cream. That was a lot of fun. I enjoy adult conversation when I can get it. (Even though I love baby talk too!)

That is all for now!

New Beginnings

Well, I decided to start a blog to update everyone in an organized manner. Now that we have a new baby, everyone wants pictures and updates, and this is the easiest way to do it. Well, Kennedy is a growing girl. She is such a good baby! She sleeps REALLY well (which I hope lasts) and she loves to be held. Not too much else to say about her. All she really does right now is eat, sleep and spit up. She is a cutie though and a real blessing to have.

As for me, I just try to get out as much as possible so I dont go crazy sitting at home. It's kind of sad when the highlight oh my day is to watch America's next top model and to eat a fudgecicle. I love to just go to the mall and just walk so that I can burn as much baby weight as possible.

Christian is just working hard for us so that we can get into our house. We have been waiting for our home for 4 months now and it is getting old fast. Pray that it will happen soon for us. Well, I guess that is all for now. I will coninue to update this often. Hope you enjoy the pictures!
