At 3 Years...

Kylie finally had her 3 year check-up, she's 32 1/2 pounds and 36 1/4 inches tall.  She did a great job at the appointment and answered the dr.'s and nurses questions, even the questions meant for me, she still had to give her input!  Kylie had to get one shot and she didn't even cry, I was so proud of her.  She did walk out of the office very slowly and they were all laughing at how slow she was moving!
One of my favorite recent pictures of her!

Happy Father's Day and Anniversary

This year, Father's Day and our Anniversary fell on the same day.

It might have been Father's Day, but Kylie Hope still got presents :)
I don't think long, black hair is his color!
These family shots are all dark, I need to see if I can lighten them up some.

3rd Birthday Party!

We were on vacation on Kylie's actual birthday so the festivities were spread out this year so family here and there could celebrate with her.  I don't have height/weight on her yet, still need to have her 3 year check-up.  She's about 35 pounds, or was the last time I weighed her and I guess around 3 feet tall.  This post will be birthday pictures mixed in with info on Kylie at 3.
Love that big smile!
I know I've said it at other ages, but Kylie is so fun right now.  She says the funniest and most random things~talking about wanting to jump "too high" to the moon like astronauts...Where does she even learn this stuff?!
Sesame Street themed party, of course!
She LOVES to pose for pictures.

Her speech is getting so much more clear and I don't have to translate as much as I used to.  She loves to make people laugh and is such a great story teller.  She becomes so animated when talking about something she finds funny/interesting.

It's not all fun and games though, she's still having some tantrums, not as many as before, but when they happen they are so much worse and last so much longer.  She's become a little bit of a smart mouth at times, it's so hard to keep from laughing, but we know we can't laugh.  Kylie loves puzzles and is really good at them.  She loves to color, read books, put stickers on EVERYTHING, and play with her little animals.  She has such a sweet and loving personality, she loves to give "big hugs", hates it if she does something to upset us, and is always quick to give us a hug to make it better.

Earlier today, she leaned towards my cheek, mouth wide open, I leaned over, expecting a big sloppy kiss, instead she bit me!  She immediately hugged me and tried to make it better, telling me she was just pretending.  I could tell she didn't mean to do it by the way she was acting.  I asked her why she would bite my cheek, she then explained she was pretending to be an alligator!  I told her not to bite anyone again and left it at that, I knew she hadn't meant it and couldn't get mad about it!
She couldn't keep her fingers out of the icing.
She much prefers ice cream to cake
Now time for the best part of the party....opening presents!
I never thought an empty sandbox would be so much fun!

More Virginia

While in Virginia we visited both Chincoteague and Assateague Islands.
Getting ready to walk to the Assateague Lighthouse.
It's being sandblasted and getting a new paint job soon so we weren't able to go inside.
Then it was time to head to the beach!
She wasn't too sure about the horseshoe crab.

 It was a nice sunny day, but still cool for swimming and according to Kylie the water was ice cold.  There were plenty of people on the beach sunbathing, but very few actually getting in the water.

We stopped by to see some ponies
She's holding her own stuffed Assateague pony, she named him Pony Pony.  The next morning she told me his name was Unicorn, but I finally convinced her to go back to calling him Pony Pony :)
She loved dancing in front of the windows and watching her reflection.
Ready for another boat ride.
And once again...she is sound asleep!
Oops, this one is out of order and it won't let me move it.
Well look who finally woke-up!
Kylie's turn to drive!
She loved playing in the rocks.
Checking the crab traps
Yum, doesn't get much fresher than this!
 Kylie and her new BFF Marley ;)
Entertaining herself on a long car ride back to Philly
We had a great trip, but were all ready to get home after being gone for so long.  Kylie was so excited to see Kit-Kat and had already planned out exactly what she was going to tell Kit-Kat when we got home.  Unfortunately the plane ride home wasn't too great, there was quite a bit of turbulence and Kylie ended up getting sick :(  The plane ride couldn't end fast enough for me, I was ready to get home after dealing with that on the plane!
