Christmas Fun!

January 5, 2009

This year we were world travelers during the Holidays. We had a great time traveling to New Hampshire and California to visit family. Kylie did so great on the plane rides (all 9 of them)! We had so many people stopping us after each ride to tell us how great Kylie was. She made friends with all of the flight attendants and everyone sitting near us. She is such a friendly, smiley girl! [We really enjoyed our Southwest flights; They are a very baby-friendly airline for sure. We were able to pick where we sat and bring the carseat on the plane since it was open seating. United airlines... not-so-baby-friendly. The planes were cramped so we couldn't take our seat and the best part- they broke our stroller and wouldn't take responsibility or pay to fix the damage. So if you are thinking about traveling with baby, I wouldn't recommend United- just my 2 cents... ] Anyway, we had so much fun and took so many pictures on our trip! I will include a bunch of them in this post so beware of a picture overload. (Make sure you click on the picture if you want to see any of them bigger.)

Before we left for the Holidays, Kylie had her 4 month Well-Baby visit at the pediatrician. (We switched to a new doctor and we love her so much! She is so sweet, gentle and playful with Kylie and she takes time with us to answer all of our questions.) Kylie got her second round of vaccinations which she did great with. She let out a little yelp right when she was poked but as soon as Daddy picked her up she stopped right away and gave the nurse a big smile. She's so cute! Here are the stats from the visit:

Age: 4 months 4 days
Weight: 16lbs 2 oz = 93rd percentile
Height: 26 inches = 97th percentile
Head Circumference: 16 3/4 inches = 90th percentile


Now, On to some pictures, since I know that's why most of you are here...
