Paislee @ 2 Months

PAISLEE @ 2 months

I took Paislee for her 2 month check this past week. I decided to try a new Doctor closer to us. With kids in school now it is just too hard to drive a 1/2 hour (one way) to get to the doc. I actually LOVED the new doc. He seemed very knowledgeable, and gave me a lot of tips and info. Paislee has started to smile so big these days and stopped crying most of the time during the day. She still has her colic nights, but hopefully that will get better in the next couple weeks. It has already started to get better, but we want it to be completely over. I can't complain about her colic though. She has been sleeping all the way through the night since 7 weeks old so I feel very blessed for that. The Doc said she looked great. She is tall & skinny. Here are her measurements @ 2 months.

Height: 23.75 inches (97th percentile)

Weight: 10 lbs (25th percentile)

Head: 37.6cm (10 percentile)

Things Paislee loves @ 2 months

- Cuddled

- Snuggled

- Eating every three hours on the DOT!!

- warm blankets (she is like her mom, can never be too warm)

- Baths every night (finally got over thinking they were awful)

Even though she still cry's a lot at night I still can't get enough of this peanut. I could squish her & kiss her all day long. Such a cutie!!

Cute Sisters!!

I had to put this picture in. On Sunday afternoon both Addie and Taylor curled up on our little couch (half the couch since all of my decorative pillows on on the rest of it) and feel asleep together. Taylor was half on Addie and half off the couch. This doesn't happen very often if at ALL. Taylor falling asleep is one thing, but falling asleep on top of each other is just not normal. I love these moments though. It makes me take a deep breath through all of our craziness and realize how grateful I am for such amazing kids, and how much I really LOVE them. Not that I don't know that already, but when they are being wild, crazy, sassy, whiny, talking back and naughty it is just hard to realize the good in those moment. Sad that it takes a sleeping moment for me to realize the GREAT.

Kindergarten Jog-A-Thon

Taylor got to run in her first school Jog-A-Thon this week. She was so nervous that she wouldn't be able to run very far. She actually ran the entire time. I honestly didn't know if she had it in her. Addie and I tried to join her a couple of times, and Tay would just take off and leave us in the dust. It still boggles my mind that we have a kindergartner. She LOVES school and hates that she has two days off every week (Saturday & Sunday). She is growing up so fast it makes me sad. Good Job on the run Tay. You did awesome.

Taylor giving a cute cheese while running her little heart out.

She was so tired at the end. She couldn't wait to get her water and OtterPop!!

First Tooth

It is official she really is growing up. Taylor has had two teeth in the bottom front come in behind her baby teeth. We made an appointment to see the dentist since the baby teeth didn't seem to want to come loose. Well last night while we were doing homework I looked at Taylor and noticed her tooth looked a little weird. Sure enough it was loose and barley hanging on. Within a couple minutes we had it out. It would have been sooner than that, but Tay was getting a little nervous about not having a tooth. Just our luck Kindergarten pics are next week. Bad timing for that, but it is good that they are coming out so the permanent teeth can move into place.

Taylor couldn't wait to go to bed to see how much the tooth fairy was going to bring her. However, she couldn't understand why a tooth fairy would want to keep a bunch of teeth. Funny Kid!!

Paislee's Blessing

Our sweet little Paislee. She looked like a doll in her blessing dress. Of course her very talented Grandma Holly made the dress & booties for us like she has done for all of our girls . She does amazing work. It was a great day with family & friends. Thank you to everyone who came to share this special day with us.

Watchout Preschool! Here she comes!!

Addie's first day of Preschool. Crazy to think that she is old enough to go. She was so excited, and thought she was big time with her backpack on. I dropped her off, and she didn't even tell me bye. She just walked in, gave her teacher a big hug & didn't even turn around for a second to see if I was still there. She obviously needed/wanted Preschool just as much as I did. Hopefully she listens to Miss Katie 100% more than she does me. Good Luck Miss Katie!!!

Happy 6th Birthday Tator Tot!!

I can't believe it has been six years since Taylor was born into our lives. I can't remember a day without her. She is such a good kid, and helps me out a TON. As always we end up going to the Carlson family cabin for Taylor's birthday. It is always over labor day, and it is our last time for the summer. This year Taylor asked for only one thing a DS game system. We ended up getting one off KSL for a great price that came with a TON of extra stuff. She was so excited when she opened it (pictured above).We didn't do a whole lot since it was a bit too cold, but it is always nice to have a nice RELAXING vacation with the family.

Taylor, Addie & Lexi waiting patiently for their smores.

All the girls (except Grandpa on the side lines)

The Carlson family has a WHOLE lot of GIRLS!!!

Addie, Hadley, Taylor & Lexi hanging out & playing the DS's. I love that they are all so close in age. It makes it really fun for them.

The girls found some ear phones and decided to plug it into the DS. Pretty funny. Taylor played the DS while Hadley & Lexi listened to it. Funny Girls!!

Tay getting ready to open her presents. Cute Paislee was added to the pic.

I couldn't leave this picture out from the weekend. The sink always ends up being the baby bath at the cabin. Paislee LOVED it for some CRAZY reason.
