Kylie - 10 months

My little girl is growing up a little fast! She hit the 10 month mark and it made me think back. In her little life we have moved 2 times, she's been on 3 roundtrip airplane rides and driven across half the country.

We've recently discovered that she loves the pool! Our apartment complex has two of them - with one right behind our building so Kylie and I have been frequenters to the pool. I must say I'm a little jealous of my babies tanning abilities! She is plastered with sunblock and somehow has tanner legs than I do.

She makes friends fast. There's a cute little boy at church who is two months younger than her and when they have playdates or see each other at church the two of them just light up with smiles and start cooing at each other. She does have a problem with stealing his toys during Relief Society so we do need to work on sharing.

We definitely love our little girl and have lots of fun playing with her, reading to her, taking her on walks, etc. We are very blessed to have her in our home!

Kansas and back to Ohio

Kylie loving life now that she can pull herself up on furniture
Kylie and I had our own row on the flight to Pittsburgh so I buckled her in to give my arms a rest

Her first Royals game! We went with cousin Gino and his family and Tracy and Matt! So fun!

First family I watched in Ohio - minus one child. Kylie had a ball playing with the twins!

Second family we watched in Ohio - minus one child. Kylie loves these kids!

Yes, I do realize I have not blogged in 2 months. Unpacking is not fun but we made it safe and sound the first part of May. I haven't taken pictures of our apartment - mostly because I still have a few more boxes to unpack so you will have to wait. We have been making friends and are very thankful to have family nearby. Kylie and I have already been to 2 Royals games with our awesome cousins and they have already called to have Kylie come play. And of course I took her over!
After being here for 4 weeks we were flown back to Ohio to watch kids. One family bought our round trip flight to watch their 4 kids for 4 days. Then another family (who I have been watching the last year) asked me to extend our trip to watch their 6 kids for 5 1/2 days. In between "jobs" we were able to spend time with Avery's family and Kylie really enjoyed seeing her Grandparents as well as her aunt and uncle. Thank You Mary for all the driving around you did for us! I must say I was very happy to get home and lounge around the pool for the next few days.
My little baby who is not much of a baby anymore is crawling everywhere. It is so fun to see her explore everything around her and I don't even mind that she's pulling books off my bookshelf. She's also starting to pull herself up on things so walking may not be too far behind. Kylie has 4 teeth now, 2 on top, 2 on bottom and we're starting to give her table food. One thing I am extremely happy about is that I finally got her to take a sippy cup while in Ohio! For those of you who know she refuses to take a bottle - this is HUGE!
