Kylie's New Love

September 30, 2008

Anyone who has been around Kylie knows that she loves Mommy and Daddy, cuddling, lights and our ceiling fans, but today, we discovered a new love... her Bassinet Mobile. Usually when I turn on the mobile (complete with lights and music) she looks for a second, becomes disinterested, and turns her head away but today was completely different. As soon as I turned everything on she was mesmerized and then started silently cracking up (she doesn't make noise yet when she laughs- but I know she's laughing). It was so fun to watch. She loved it!

Exercises with Kylie

September 25, 2008

This is a little video of Kylie practicing moving her arms and legs together. She loves her exercises and I love her little laugh at the end.

Yesterday, Kylie and I were doing our exercises and we started singing and dancing too. Kylie's reaction was so cute! She was having so much fun! We've already got another little dancer in the family. Please ignore the annoying singing and my baby voice... it's embarrassing but Kylie likes it...

So Much Fun With Daddy

September 24, 2008

Kylie's favorite part of the day is definitely when Daddy comes home. She loves playing with him and we love watching her smile. These pictures are from last night.




All bundled up in her towel right after bath time. (Mike was nervous the whole time I was taking pictures because Kylie was not wearing a diaper yet and lying on our bed... not a good combination in the past...)

Happy Birthday, Kylie!

September 20, 2008

Our little girl is growing up so fast! She's already ONE MONTH OLD (yesterday)! It really is true what they say... She is growing and learning more and more each day. She is responding more to our voices and can recognize our faces. It's so cute to see the look she gets on her face when Daddy comes home from work. She is definitely Daddy's little girl already.

For her one-month-birthday we went out to celebrate. We had dinner at Olive Garden, where Mommy and Daddy stuffed themselves silly, and then came home to a Happy Birthday Cake for Kylie. I spent most of the day trying to make a little cake, from scratch I might add, while holding a little girl that just wanted to be cuddled all day... but I'm not complaining at all. She is such a little cuddle bug! And all day Miss Kylie was all dressed up in her 'Party Dress.' She was very excited to celebrate with us.


"Hooray for Party Dresses!!!"


Kylie's Birthday Cake


Mike plays a fun little game with her and gets her to smile, like this... We love it!


Here's a little video of Daddy making her smile. This makes my heart smile!

So many pictures...

September 18, 2008

So, I'm thinking we should change the name of our blog to "All about Kylie with tons and tons of pictures." But that's what our life is now though. Our worlds completely revolve around our little princess now... and we love it.

These are just some fun little pictures that I had on my phone. Isn't she stinking cute?


In the mornings, if Kylie isn't sleeping, I get her ready with this sweet set up just outside the bathroom door so she stays occupied and I can have a minute to shower. She loves looking at high contrast objects, so I make her little pictures to look at while she lays in her bouncer.


I just love the concentration on her face in this one! She liked the zig-zags. Too cute!


Daddy always has the timing right and can get pictures of her with a big grin on her face. She's such a happy girl!


She was looking at herself on the screen on my phone while I was taking this one. I just love the expression on her face.


We also need addresses so we can send out her birth announcement. Let us know if you would like one :)

4 Weeks Old

September 16, 2008

Yesterday Miss Kylie had her second visit with the Pediatrician. She is a healthy girl, that's for sure. She is up to a nice 10 pounds, 10 ounces. Needless to say, she's eating really well. We still just can't get enough of her.

She is trying more and more to hold her own head up and she's doing really well with it. She loves to be held and cuddled which we are not opposed to at all. She also loves to play a making-faces game with Mommy and Daddy. We hold her close and make a face over and over again and after a while she tries to mimic it or just stares intently. She is the cutest little girl ever. She has also learned to love bath time now that we can bathe her in her little tub instead of the always chilly sponge bath. She also absolutely loves watching our ceiling fans.

A post is never complete without a ridiculous amount of pictures, so here are some from the last couple weeks.



I just love her little fingers...


...and her little toes! (she has Mommy's feet)

Cuddled up on Daddy's pillow.

Snuggling up with Daddy at the end of the day.
