It looks so beautiful outside, although not so pretty to drive in. the boys played outside while mommy and Kayla stayed warm inside, but since it was her first snow!

Happy four months!!

My baby was 4 months old two days ago!!! Happy Birthday to her!

what she is up to:

. she is drooling constantly!! I wonder if she is getting a tooth soon.

. everything she sees goes straight to her mouth! specially her socks(Kayla is always taking them off)!!

. she loves her playmat! except for when she rolls over.. she rolls and then gets stuck and gets frustrated.

. still not a huge fan of tummy time, but it looks like she is liking it a bit more every day.

. she is probably the happiest baby I know!! she is always smiling (dont get me wrong she still cries, but rarely, or when something is really wrong)

. she sleeps through the night ever since 2 months!

. since this past Monday she has been sleeping in her crib! like a big girl( please stop growing so fast:)

.she is now wearing size two diapers!

I will post her stats after her appointment but here are some of her pictures with her 4 month sticker! oh dont mind the hat photo shoot, I just wanted to try all of them on.

I've been tag! TAM

I was tagged as a TAM (Truly Authentic Mom) by Mike&Care - The Kipper Family Blog
Here are 5 things that I think make me a TAM :)

1.I know the songs to every nickelodeon/Disney show... and I think I like watching the "suite life of Zack and Cody" more than my son does :)

2.I'm a little obssesed with taking pictures of my kids; at first I thought I was like this with Austin because he was my first, but Im still as bad with Kayla! they are just so adorable!(I know every mom says this:))

3. when my mom watches Kayla during the week, I have her take pictures on her phone and send them to me, I look foward to them every day, and it helps me make it through a long day of work.

4 I love having converstations with my kids, well with Kayla I just talk to her and she just coo's back:), but I have real conversations with Austin about his day at school and they are the best! he talks like a grown up and I just love hearing about his day.

5 I just melt when I see Austin and Kayla interact with each other, Austin is such a good big brother and she always has a smile form ear to ear when she sees him!

Now I have to tag 5 mor mommies.

Our little princess is three months old today. Where is the time going? She is getting so big so fast! We all love here more every day... Her face lights up every time her brother walks in the room, she is such a happy baby, we are so blessed to have her. I love her smile, and those brights eyes just makes us melt.

what she is up to:
. she is sleeping about 11 hours straight! we put her down at 10 and she wakes up around 8:30 or 9.. I think she gets the love of sleep from me :)
. she likes tummy time, althought only for short periods of time
. she is still getting breastmilk although she is now getting the bottle with pumped milk during the day because im back at work.
. she loves her playmat
. she is cooing non stop she's a talker!
. wont know her weight until her 4 month check up but she is def getting chunky!

she found her thumb!

Kayla has been sucking her fists lately but the other day she found her thumb and now she loves sucking her thumb! she even likes it better than the pacifier which is good because Im not that big of a fan of pacifiers... oh and yesterday she laughed out loud, it was soo cute! I wish I got it on video, but of course as soon as I got the camera out she stooped and we couldnt get her to do it again:( maybe next time

Happy Halloween!!

we had so much fun this weekend, it was Kayla's first halloween so it was fun dressing her up! and Austin of course loves this holiday so he had a blast trick or treating! Justin took Austin trick or treating with a group of people, and I stayed with Kayla and my sister who had come over with little Mason to pass out candy!

Here is my little boxer

Family Road Trip!!!

We just got back from our family vacation!!! we drove to Lakeland Fl to visit Justin's grandparents for a couple of days, then we drove to Sarasota which is only an hour an half away and stayed at my inlaws Fl home. The drive there usually takes about 16 hours long!,but since we had to stop every three to four hours to feed miss Kayla it took us a bit longer..we actually stopped in Georgia and stayed the night there and made it to our destination the next morning. both of the kids did great in the car, Austin was very busy with some book activities and movies, and kayla pretty much slept the whole way there, and only woke up for feedings then was happy for a while until she went back to sleep(we got lucky!)

Justin's grandparents live about 20 minutes away from Disney!!! so we took a day out of our vacay to visit the Happiest Place on Earth!!I sometimes feel like I get more excited than Austin when it comes to things like this, okay maybe not because he was super excited, but I was right there with him! we had so much fun, Austin was finally tall enough to make it down splash mountain with daddy(so proud of him!)

The rest of our trip was nothing but fun quality time with the fam, and a lot of relaxing by the pool!

Enjoy the pics overload:)
