Kendal is 5 months old!!!!

Can you believe it?!?! Kendal is 5 months old now!!! She is soo extremely talkative and social. She loves everyone, unless she just woke up then she kinda gets sad. On Christmas Eve she sat up for her first time! It was a big shock to see her sitting there all by herself! She's so stinkin strong! Well here are some pictures of her from Christmas and today. Enjoy!

She loves Pooh Bear and my Grandma brought down the big bear. Kendal was soo excited when she saw it!






Smiling at Uncle Ben



As she was sitting, she would fall over and eat her toes and then push herself back up in the sitting position! So strong!

So cute!

Santa Clause



I really really wanted to go and see Santa with Kendal this year! We waited until almost the last minute, but we still went! We waited in line for almost 3 hours!! Kendal did really well though. Slept a little and loved watching the other kids. Tanner was bored and wanted to go walk around. So he went up to the food court, in Arrowhead Mall, and called me saying he thinks Twitch is up there. For those of you who don't know who Twitch is...on the TV show So You Think You Can Dance he was one of the finalist. Such an amazing dancer!! I told Tanner to go ask him and if it was him ask him if he'd come say hi to me because I would really love to meet him!! Well Tanner did!! Twitch ended up coming down stairs and took a picture with Kendal and I!! It was sooo cool!! I have my husband to thank for such an awesome night!! Santa and Twitch!! 




Finally Got Internet

The Nutcracker


This past Saturday my mom, sister, Kendal and I went to the Nutcracker. This is our 17th year going. But this year was special because I had my baby! It was so awesome to bring Kendal and start this tradition with her. She was actually really good during the ballet. She watched the dancers for a little while and then got a little tired. She slept through intermission and woke up during the second half of the ballet to eat. After the show was over there was at least 20 people who crowed near Kendal and would just adore her. "Look how beautiful" "She's so cute" and Kendal would just flirt back with big ol smiles. She is soo funny. Loves the attention she gets. Here are some pictures of us at the ballet. My mom is in a wheelchair because she had surgery on her foot, well both feet, but didn't want to walk all the way from the parking garage to Symphony Hall. 



Kind of washed out but I'll post a better one when I get it.

Rolling and Giggling

Yesterday we went to the Doctor for Kendal's 4 month check up!! She's already 4 months!!!! She weighs 14lbs 9oz and is 26inches long. She is getting so talkative and giggly. And just yesterday she started rolling over. Every time we lay her on her back she rolls over to her tummy. Can't quit figure out how to go from her tummy to back. We try to help her and push her a little to go to one side but she just lays her head down. It's pretty cute. She's got a bit of an attitude, but that's a girl for you. Been really bad about taking pictures but I've been kind of stressed out and going through some post-pardum depression. But I will take pictures soon and post them. She sure is growing.

Everything else is going ok. Tanner is still looking for a new job, but with the way things are right now, it's really hard. Not really a lot going on in our lives. But my extended family has a lot going on! My cousins Clint and Clark, twins, received their mission calls. One to Philadelphia and the other to Huston. Forgot which one is going where : ) Also my Aunt Leslie and Uncle Jared are expecting TWINS!!! They are going to have 4 kids under the age of 3!!! HOLY MOLY!! Good luck to them! But honestly, if anyone could handle that it would be them! haha Tanner's brother also received his mission call. He is going to Nicerogua!! Wow! Lots going on! Anyway, getting ready for the holidays! This is my favorite time of year!

Here is a video of Kendal rolling over. She is becoming quit the pro!

Update...

Kendal is growing SO fast!! She is now 4 months! She is picking up a new routine. She sleeps at night 6 hours and wakes up to eat and then falls back asleep for another 6 hours. It's GREAT! During the day she is awake most of the time but needs a nap around 12 or 1. She is learning to scream. Not when she's mad or sad, just to talk. It's the CUTEST thing ever!! The other day I had my sister take our family pictures, no need to pay someone when you've got a sister : ) Thanks Hil! Here are a few...

Wild Life World Zoo

This past Saturday we decided to go to the zoo. We live much closer now and we haven't gone with Kendal. We spent about 4 hours walking around and watching all the animals. Kendal we very good. She loved watching the animals and was awake for most of the time. She did get sleepy near the end, but with all the new noises and new things to watch, she didn't stay asleep long. We had so much fun! Here are some pictures from the zoo! Enjoy! (Halloween pictures are coming. Keep forgetting the sd card at my apartment! : )









Kendal loved watching all the animals!


HUGE Koi (however that is spelled)



Sweet picture! Ducks and the fish fighting over the pellets we through to them.

Getting sleepy...Kendal was awake for most of the 4 hours we were there!

Best Baby Ever!!!

Just a quick little blog, but Tanner and I have the best baby EVER!!! I do not know why or how we got so lucky with our little girl! She is just the happiest baby! She is now starting to giggle! Wednesday night was the first night she giggled and then last night she was even more giggly. It seriously is the CUTEST thing ever!! Kendal also just got 4 shots today!! I have been dreading going to get her shots because last time the nurse was soo rough and mean. This time, I cried more than Kendal did!! No joke! We are so blessed to have little Kendal in our family!

Finally...

We still do not have internet, we probably won't ever get it, saves money. But I am at my parent's house for the weekend while Tanner is up at the Dunes. We've being doing really well. Moved to Avondale and LOVE it! Baby Kendal is growing soo much. She is super smiley now. She is such a wonderful little baby. She is now 3 months old!! I cannot believe how fast it is going!! She loves her daddy soo much. When she hears his voice or sees him, she gets the biggest grin on her face and starts squeeling. It is the cutest thing ever!! Tanner is still working at the University of Phoenix. Still trying to find a job that will work with his school schedule. He hopes to start before the year is over. As for me, I'm just loving life. Kendal is such a perfect baby, it makes life so much easier. I am planning on going to school come January. I think I'm going for my nursing degree. Been thinking a lot and I really need to start doing something.

Here are a few 3 month shots I took of Kendal.
