What all the cool babies are wearing.......

Leg warmers are a must have right now and after seeing how cute they are I needed some for Kylie!  The only problem is the cost of them, didn't want to spend that much money, soooooo I did some googling and found how to make them for really cheap. 
This pair took about 5 minutes, if even that long to make!  The hardest part was waiting for her to wake up so that I could try them on her!  I know that the colors don't match, but that's what she was wearing when I finished them and I couldn't wait to put them on!


I will post pictures of the other ones once I make them.

Getting ready for Halloween....

Kylie has a few Halloween onesies, but didn't have a bow to wear with them and every girl has to have a bow to match their outfits!  I decided to attempt to make one myself and it turned out pretty good!  Her bow doesn't match what she's wearing in these pics, but I had to have it modeled once I was finished.


I can't wait to make some more bows for her!

Food Update

Kylie loves rice cereal and green beans (by themselves and mixed together). Kylie has NO love for carrots. She gagged at first and then when I gave her another bite she just held it in her mouth with her mouth wide open and wouldn't swallow. I thought I would out wait her, but she won and I ended up fishing the carrots out of her mouth. We'll wait a while before trying carrots again!

 Carrots :(

Green Beans :)

Just some pics from the last several days.  We finally have a little cooler weather and Kylie is getting to wear some warmer clothes!  We have also gone outside the last couple of days and it felt so good out there, Kylie enjoys watching the leaves!

It wasn't cold enough in the house for a hood, but had to put it on for the picture!

holding onto her frog, she always smiles and reaches for the frog when she gets in her carseat, she has actually held onto the frog the whole time we have grocery shopped before!

just chillin' on Daddy's shoulder

Happy 4 Months Kylie Hope!

Kylie is 4 months old today!

Kylie at:
birth~       7 pounds 7 ounces
                19 3/4 inches long
1 month~  9 pounds 12 ounces
                 20 3/4 inches long
2 months~ 11 pounds 8.5 ounces
                 23 inches long
4 months~ 14 pounds
                 24 inches long

I finally checked growth charts today and she has basically been right around the 50th percentile since birth for weight and height.

She had her 4 month appointment yesterday and got 3 shots. She cried as she was getting the shots, okay she SCREAMED as she was getting them, but stopped the instant I picked her up when they were finished.  I think the shots bothered her more this time than they did before.  She slept all day yesterday and has been pretty sleepy and a little fussy today.

Kylie sure is growing up!  This past month she has started eating rice cereal and LOVES it.  Her eyes light up when she sees the spoon and she starts kicking her legs and gets so excited!  As much as she loves her bottle, I figured she would feel the same about food!  Today I gave her green beans for the first time, not sure exactly how she feels about them yet, but she ate the green beans.  There is video that will be eventually uploaded (not good about remembering to post videos).  Also, she sneezed while eating the green that wasn't too pretty!

Kylie still likes her swing and usually takes her afternoon nap in it, she doesn't watch the red button as much as she used to, but still loves the zebra on the swing.

Kylie has been laughing more and more, we never really know what is going to get her going, but as soon as she starts laughing then we can't help but laugh with her, it is the sweetest sound!

Kylie loves to lay on her play mat on the floor and play with her toys.  She reaches and grabs toys and everything instantly goes to her mouth.  She can roll over in both directions and when we do tummy time she usually will roll over at least once each time.  Kylie now really enjoys tummy time which is amazing because she used to scream during it.  I think Kylie's favorite toy is her snail that plays music and lights up when touched, she will play with it for a very long time.

Kylie is having to wear a bib ALL the time right now.  She is drooling a lot and was getting rashes under her neck and on her chin from all the drool.  The bibs are helping with the rashes though we have to change them pretty often, she sure can soak one quick!

Kylie is never quiet anymore, the favorite (or least favorite depending on the time) is her monkey sounding noises.  She even practiced them one morning at 4:30 for an hour and a half.  She practiced the same noises when we went out to eat one evening.  Kylie enjoys conversations with anyone that will make noises/sounds back at her.  Kylie has also started SHRIEKING, it's a happy shriek, but still a shriek, like a ear splitting, bone chilling shriek and she loves doing it!

Kylie is still a good sleeper for the most part....we've had some bad nights lately and she has had some trouble falling asleep recently, but hopefully that doesn't last too much longer.

Most importantly, Kylie still has the prettiest smile in the world and is always smiling!

Kylie had her 4 month check-up today, which meant shots :( She did really good though and has been sleeping most of the day. Tomorrow I will do a 4 month post since that is her official "4 month birthday"!

Sooo big!

Wednesday Kylie has her 4 month appointment and on Thursday she will be 4 months old! I can't believe it, she is getting so big and changing so much! Later this week, I'll do a post of her favorite things and what she is able to do now that she is the big 4 months old!

For now, here are some pictures from the last week...

Felt I needed to include a crying shot just to show everyone that she doesn't always have a smile on her face!

These 2 are my favorites, love the smile above and on the one below I love the look on her face!

ready to go fishing!

the pole is a little bit bigger than her, but she still thinks she can out fish the guys!
