Book Fair ~

Hailey wanted to get a book at the Book Fair SOOOOOO bad...
The first day of the fair she took me into the Library and showed me the book that she wanted. I took a picture (because that is how we let the kids know we are listening to them; then we can pass it onto Santa for Christmas usually. OH the picture in my camera of what the kids want...) and then we had a little chat about what she can do to get this book.
Now I remember being a kid and wanting to get books from the Scholastic Book Order that came home ever month SO BAD TOO... I never got one... so the little girl in me WANTED to let her get this book. So she came up with some ideas of what she can do to get it...

1. Do my homework for the day
2. Be nice to my brother
3. Play with my sister
4. Help make dinner
5. Make good choices with my life

I thought these were pretty good ideas, so I said "That sounds great lets go home and talk with Daddy about it... WELL...
She did ALL these things AND more. She dressed herself in the morning, and helped do the dishes too! So I could not refuse her sweetness. She did this for two days... SO PROUD! Barbie Mariposa & the Fairy Princess is the name of the book AND it came with a butterfly necklace. You better believe she has been wearing that necklace EVERYDAY... One day I had to take it away because she had a bad day at school. We talked about how she would earn the necklace back and it was amazing to me that she did what she said she was going to do!!
At first I was NOT a fan of this Book Fair and the $10.00 Barbie book... Now it is MY Best Friend!!

Pumpkin Patch ~

We went to the Pumpkin King Pumpkin Patch this year...
The kids LOVED it because they got to each pick a ride to go on...
 Hailey wanted to ride on the "Ghetto Fabulous Hello Kitty thing" 
while Landon chose to do the Pirate Ship and Bounce House.
Kylie got to enjoy eating straw and taking pictures...
After spending $10.00 on the kids rides I refused to pay another $6.00 for a medium pumpkin... so we hit up Savemart for our Pumpkins! Look Forward to our Pumpkin Carving Post!!

Our Theme for YW in Excellence this year was "Making Personal Progress Personal!" We had each of our YW choose one of the eight Value's to share an Experience about for Personal Progress. We had a beautiful spiritual meeting, then we headed to the YW Room to enjoy this...
The Candy Bar...
 Each person was given a baggie and told to ENJOY...

We had a candy colored to match each Value AND then a few rainbow options!
 It was a GREAT night had by all! 
Simple and Perfect in every way!!

Our little BUNDLE of JOY is growing up...
 Kylie is now 6 Months Old!!
 This little girl LOVES the camera!
At her check up Dr. Jones told us that she can have all veggies and fruit, rice, noodles, toast and to introduce Peanut Butter. Well she had her first PB&J today and let me tell you... she LOVED it! She laughs at her little brother and just smiles at her big sister. She LOVES her mama and her food. When Daddy gets home from work she looks at him and smiles then hides her head in mommy's shoulder. She is our happy little one and I am just enjoying her so much! She truly is a gift from heaven!!

FIVE Months ~

Doing pretty good with this girls pictures...
 She has a beautiful smile and eyes that go for miles!
 She would be looking away and playing and I would call her name and she would look straight at the camera! I think she knows that the camera is her best friend!
 So glad she is in our family!!
 And of course we stripped her down and she got the sign!
We love you Kylie! Thanks for being SO Freakin' Adorable!!

We had Kylie's "four month" check up yesterday... 
14 pounds 3 ounces!!
As the Dr. Says... she is really only THREE months, but she is doing so well I am not concerned about this little one at all! Dr. Richard Jones (the BEST pediatrician in the world as far as I am concerned; and I have had a few pediatricians to be able to give him that title) told me about "the new way MOST Dr.'s are feeding infants" He pulled out his Prescription Pad and started writing away...
~ Spoon feeding 3X a day... malt o meal, cream of wheat, oatmeal, rice... carrots, squash, yams, pears, applesauce, bananas, soft boiled eggs, strained chicken or beef...
The mama in me was shocked because I did not feed either of my kids before like 5-6 months AND we started with baby rice cereal and breast milk. Dr. told us that the evidence in the research that has been done on this "new way of feeding infants" can not be denied! Bone Density is twice as high in the studies that had been done with infants that are eating this way. He was also telling me that he read a few articles written by people who were following the research and they DID NOT want to go along with the new way of feeding, but after seeing the results, they had no choice but to recommend it too! Very interesting to me... ANYWAYS... we hit up the store and got some fruits and veggies to puree up!
Here she is... 
Don't judge me...
I know she is in a BLUE bumbo seat.
I had a purple one with Hailey, then got a blue, and I don't feel the need to get a purple one again.
(poor thing is going to have THIRD CHILD SYNDROME)

 There... added a BOW and a GIRLY BIB and there is NO denying this sweet one is a girl...
 add a little applesauce and she is a HAPPY little girl...
That Daddy has her giggling all the time! THUMBS UP to the NUMMYNESS!!

FOUR Months!!

What is the right age to introduce Disney Princess' to your little daughter?

Four Months you say...
 She LOVED this outfit! I found it at the store and sent a picture to my mom because it was SOOOOOO cute! They only had size Newborn left so I was not going to get it. (Size Newborn = 5-8 lbs.) Grandma said "GET IT... I want it!" I also got her a Cinderella Outfit! GUESS WHO STILL FIT THE OUTFIT!!?? 
 Landon helped me get her to giggle and smile! 
I can't believe all the different faces she pulled!
 She had me giggling too!
 She has that Disney Princess Smile and Wave thing DOWN!!
AND then she was done! Fell asleep while taking pictures! LOL!
At her check up she is doing great! 14 lbs. 3 oz! Growing like a little baby weed!
