Sneaky Peeks

December 21, 2008

Every morning since Kylie moved into her big-girl crib, her day starts like so:

1. Wake up and look around, all the while talking to the ladybugs on her bumper and the ceiling fan in the sky.

2. Feel around for that pesky little bumper that blocks her view. Grab on tight and get ready!

3. Straight up it goes and now she can see more than just the world inside her crib.

4. She goes on like this for a while peeking through the gap between the bumper and mattress until Mommy comes to scoop her up.

{p.s. These pictures were taken as she was waking up from a short nap. No, she doesn't sleep fully clothed and with a bow in her hair, but she sure is cute, isn't she?!? }


Daddy's So Silly!

December 20, 2008

Kylie and Daddy were having a good 'ol time last night. We missed some of her best laughs but we still got some really cute ones. It almost seemed like she was laughing at herself at some points. Her crazy squeal is the best part! Cutest baby EVER!!!


Pretty Girl

December 14, 2008

We just had to take pictures of our pretty little girl in her church dress today. She was so pretty and she is sitting up like such a big girl. She loves going to church and especially loves singing with us.

{Smiling at Silly Daddy}

Big Girl
She is officially a big girl now, sleeping in her big girl bed. She has been in her bassinet all this time and has certainly outgrown it. Last night was her first night in her crib and she slept, well, like a baby, all sprawled out and loving the extra space.

{Here she is, showing off how big she is... with a little help from Daddy}

More Friends
I don't know if you've heard, but Kylie is a pretty popular little chicky around the Kirby household. She always has so many friends that want to play with her. Tonight she got to play with Mrs. MonkeyMonk, and boy, did they have a good time!

{They always have such a good time together}

{Lots of hugs...}

{...and lots of kisses!}


Movie Star

December 12, 2008

Kylie has been developing like crazy. It's amazing to see all of the new things she is learning. She loves being picked up and now realizes when it happens. Anytime we lean down toward her, she stretches her arms out wide, arches her back, and tightens her whole body, and of course she gets a big cheesy grin on her face. It's so fun!

She is so much more active now and so interactive. Because of this we have been using our video camera alot to capture all of these special moments. Here are a couple of videos from this past week:

Finally! I have been trying for two weeks to get video of Kylie rolling over! She seems to either get stage fright or way too interested in the camera when its on her, so she doesn't roll. But this morning, I finally got it! You can see, I tried to bribe her with my cell phone, but she didn't even need it. Yea!!! Go, Kylie! {She didn't really seem as excited as I was though...}

Last week, while we were getting Kylie ready for bed, we found her little tickle spot. She loves being tickled and we love tickling her... but how could you not when you get that cute little laugh!


"Smartest Baby in the World"

December 10, 2008

The other night we were teaching Kylie all of her different body parts before she got into her Jammies. She's a quick learner...

{Smartest baby in the world!}


Making Friends

December 8, 2008

Kylie was introduced to a new friend a few days ago. She had a really good time getting to know Miss BunBun.

{Studying her new friend}

{She loves to sit up so I put up this handy boppy barrier for her. She was so happy}

{It's so nice to meet you!}

{We're just playing}


It's beginning to look alot like Christmas!

December 5, 2008

It's always been a tradition in my home to decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. So by Friday night our home was so pretty and festive! I just love this time of year! As I was decorating our tree I had the biggest grin on my face while I was blasting Christmas carols. It was such a childlike happiness. It's simple pleasures that make life so great. And Kylie loves the lights! We are so excited to start our own family traditions to share with our kids!

Here are a couple pictures of our pretty living room:

{This was almost the first post ever that didn't include a picture of Kylie... I felt really weird about that... So here's a picture of Kylie sitting back in her swing while I was taking pictures...}

{She is just stinking cute!}


New Toys for Kylie...

December 3, 2008

Last week Kylie made an amazing discovery... She has feet!!! These adorable little tootsies have since become her new favorite toys. Whether she is sitting up or laying down, as soon as she sees them, it's all over. Last night she decided she wanted to taste them (as she does with all of her other toys) so in went the foot. She is actually playing and talking to them as I type. She is such a silly girl!

{Daddy and Tootsies? Does life get any better?}

{"Mom, look what I got!" Such a happy girl!}

{Studying the feet-sies}


We are so in love...
