Baby Belly!

So here it is!! I'm not a big fan of having my picture taken, especially when I am feeling extra huge! This picture was taken on Thanksgiving when I was about 31 weeks pregnant. I have 2 more 2 week appointments and then I will start going in to see the Dr. every week until our little boy decides to come. I'm definitely feeling very pregnant these days but it still doesn't seem real to me that we are having a boy. Yesterday I washed all of the baby clothes and it was so weird pulling baby boy clothes out of the dryer. We are super excited but I don't think it will set in until they hand him to me in the hospital...and that day is coming up fast!!!

Someone is excited for Christmas!!

October was a very busy month for us!! In May of this year we put an offer in on a condo and we finally closed at the beginning of October. It was a long and very frustrating process but we are soooo happy that everything worked out and we are slowly getting settled into our new place. I will put up pictures as soon as things are more put together. I can't promise that it will happen any time soon though. Hopefully before baby #2 comes. :)
I am starting to realize how horrible I am at taking pictures of Kaylee. When she was little we used to take pictures of her all the time. Maybe it is because she is older and more active and doesn't stay still long enough to take pictures....or maybe it's because I am lazy...or a combination. All I can say is that I am grateful for friends who have amazing camera skills and take pictures of Kaylee.
Here are some of the pictures that we managed to take this month!

We went to the Air Show at the beginning of the month. Kaylee loved it but for days after it she kept telling us how loud the planes were.

We celebrated Kaylee's 2nd birthday! I still can't believe I have a 2 year old!!

Showing off her pretty flower crown that she got for her birthday from one of her favorite people in the world Ellen.

We met up with some friends and did some exploring at Sea World.

We went to the New Children's Museum with our friends Ethan and Ellen.

We took a trip to Bates Nut Farm. Kaylee had a blast feeding the animals and playing in the pumpkin patch. We definitely want to make this a yearly tradition. It is such a fun place!!

We spent lots of time with good friends. Ethan was kind enough to help Kaylee eat her yogurt. I love watching these two play together!!
Overall, it has been a month full of fun !!! I can't believe that it is already November but I am excited for the holidays coming up and for more fun times spent with family and friends!!!

LPGA Here We Come!!!

I knew when I married Dan I was marrying into a family of golfers. Dan's dad grew up playing golf and works at a golf course, his Grandpa played on the PGA and is a lifetime member, and Dan LOVES to play golf!!! I think if he had the option to play golf everyday he would. Dan's Grandpa was going through some things and he came across some junior size golf clubs. He called us and told us he wanted to give the clubs to Kaylee and that when we come and get them he could give Kaylee her first lesson! We went to their house today and Kaylee had so much fun!! It was fun to watch her interact with her Great-Grandpa. She definitely doesn't have the attention span to master the sport of golf right now but maybe one day! I can totally see Dan taking her out to the driving range with him one day. I'm ok with it...she can play golf and be a ballerina too, right?! :)

Our girly girl!!!

Yep, that's mascara folks!!! Dan was on the phone, I was on the computer, and Kaylee....was in the bathroom putting on her make-up!! Normally when she wanders into the bathroom she goes for her toothbrush. We are usually pretty quick about getting her before she is able to get into anything but today we weren't fast enough. You would think that I would have learned the first time she got into my make-up bag (Let's just say that she loves blush!). I should have moved it then, so silly of me!!! I can report now that my make-up bag is now kept in the hall closet on the second highest shelf. I guess we will see how long it stays safe there!!

"Marriage, marriage is what brings us together today!"

Bonus points to anyone who knows where that quote is from! It's a CLASSIC! :) Well, my sister Heidi got married on June 25th in the San Diego Temple. They are currently doing some work on the temple so there is scaffolding all around it. It's wierd to see it like that but it was still a beautiful day. Heidi looked beautiful in her dress and so so happy! Her husband Jonathan is a really great guy and they just seem perfect together!! They were married in the morning and then had a reception later that evening. It was a long day but so fun celebrating with Heidi and spending time with family and good friends.

Kaylee starting to break down. It's nap time!!
Water break!
I love that she can drink out of a waterbottle without spilling all of it down the front of her! What a big girl! :) I am a little sad that she knows how to twist caps off of things now. Keeps me on my toes! :)

Summer's Here!!

I'm sure I have mentioned this before but Kaylee LOVES to be outside!!! She is always asking to go outside. On one day in particular I was trying to think of something fun for Kaylee to do. I wanted to get out of the house and just figured we could head over to my parent's house. They have a pool, backyard, and cats that Kaylee can doesn't get better than that! On the way over though I stopped at Target and picked up an inflatable baby pool, a must have for summer, right? :) Well, I set the pool up in my parent's backyard and Kaylee had a blast!!

Kaylee enjoyed the pool for a while but then it became more exciting to dump water on the chair....silly girl!!

Abby's Flying Fairy School!!!

I LOVE that Kaylee LOVES Sesame Street!!! I grew up watching Sesame Street and it makes me sooo happy that she gets so excited the moment the theme music starts! There is a segment on Sesame Street called Abby's Flying Fairy School and Kaylee LOVES it!!!! It's actually pretty cute! Now whenever she sees any girl monster on the show she calls her Abby. So funny! I think we are going to dress her up as Abby for Halloween this year....already brainstorming! :)

Our Zoo passes expired in march of this year so we decided to splurge and get Sea World passes! They were having a deal where if you buy one year you get the 2nd year free. We just couldn't pass it up! Plus, Kaylee is still young enough so we don't have to pay for her. Gotta take advantage of it while we can! :) Anyway, at Sea World they have an area of the park called Sesame Street's Bay of Play. While wandering around the gift shop I came across this:

Of course, I had to buy it!!! I wish I was able to get some pictures of Kaylee at Sea World but she wouldn't stay still. Such a busy girl! I'll have to try harder next time we go! :)

Yummy Mud!!

Today we went to a birthday party for our friend's son who just turned 2. There were lots of little kids there and Kaylee had a blast!! Kaylee was walking on the cement patio in their backyard and attempted to walk off the edge and ended up face planting. It was like slow motion when it happened. It was only a couple inches from the cement to the grass/mud but Kaylee isn't so graceful when it comes to stepping down from things. She is a tough girl and just wanted to get up and keep playing. Of course we had to get a picture of her before we cleaned her up! :)

Beach Baby!!

I am a little embarrassed to admit this, seeing as I live in San Diego, but today was the first day that Kaylee went in the ocean. I wasn't sure exactly how she would react to the water but as soon as we put her down on the beach she headed straight towards the water. She ran all over the place, got knocked over by the water a few times, and absolutely loved it!!! It was such a beautiful day!! It was one of those days where I was reminded why I LOVE living in San Diego. We were originally planning on just having her play in the sand and so we didn't bring any towels or any sort of beach gear with us. BIG MISTAKE!! Next time we will definitely be more prepared! Dan was really excited that Kaylee loved the beach because he grew up going to the beach A LOT!! Me, not so much...and I think watching Jaws ruined it for me as well. :) It was a really fun afternoon and I was glad that we could spend some relaxing time as a family before the stress of school begins again for Dan. If anyone wants to take a trip to the beach, we're in!!

This is the before picture. :)

Walking around with Daddy.
Splashing in the water!

Ready to go home!
