Everything else paled in comparison.
I had my birthday, Dolphe had his birthday, Kaylee turned ONE!!! in November. (I will add pictures later - I haven't updated this computer with pictures in a long time, plus Carrie took most of the pictures on her camera). Our little bumblebee is growing up. Kaylee starting walking on Dolphe's b-day in October. Her first word was cheese. She thinks that her name is Mama. Commercials of Jillian Michaels she points to herself and just stares, other than Sesame Street that's the only tv she watches. She waits for Daddy to come home everyday, all day, any truck coming down the street is sure to be him, waits by the the front door or garage door for him to come in. She loves her Daddy and it is so sweet to see them together.
Then in December we went to Idaho for Christmas, which was a blast! AND we found out we are having another bambino/a. Same as Brian and Amy. We will have babies within a week of each other, the end of August. Is there such a thing as twinny cousins? Well, there is now. Little Virgo cousins. We find out next week what we are having!
This week I have been sitting Kaylee on the couch (without me, all alone) with bunny right by her side covered with a blanket, drinking her milk, watching Sesame Street so I can make breakfast. This morning, I was almost done making breakfast (pancakes with peanut butter on top), the show was over and Kaylee was already halfway thru the kitchen. I usually come and get her. She knows how to get off the couch - but I realized that she is just one step closer to not needing me. As much. These days, it only takes a little bit to make me tear up before bawling the rest of the day - reason #1 - that my baby is practically grown. Thank you hormones. Don't even mention Say Yes to the Dress - because that's all it takes and we are down another tissue box. She'll be old enough for nursery next month, I don't want to think about that either. I know it's silly. All these months - walking the halls at church, wishing she was old enough for nursery already. And now it's almost here.
Well, I'd better go now. Before I do start crying and everyone is rolling their eyes because I'm so crazy. I will keep this up and have lots of pictures (from Carrie's camera, because I do not take many pics) to share. Take care!

Hello again. A lot has happened in the last month and a half, I don't remember it all and I'm sure you don't want to read about it all! The first thing that comes to mind is that Carrie, Kaylee, and I went to Idaho to visit our family and help with Kjerstin's baby shower. It was so much fun. We drove up so we spent the night at Brian and Amy's in West Jordan, UT. Kaylee held hands with Lila when they were reintroduced. First time was in December when Kaylee was 5 weeks old. Kora is forever adorable. As soon as we walked in the door to my parents house Kaylee's "on" button was in overdrive and it didn't stop until we left a week a later. It made it so much fun. She went to everyone, smiled, laughed, was crazy. She only cried when she didn't want to go to sleep (as always) and when my dad left the room. We will be going up again the beginning of June for a couple weeks, well, depending on if Carrie gets done with her jury duty. The trial was sopposed to last 19 days which would be exactly when her vacation starts. Kjerstin should be having her baby next week!!!
Kaylee is 6 months now, rolling all over the place, talking and laughing A LOT, teething on and off again, eating solids, sitting up, just being her nutty, happy self. Kaylee is so much fun when it's not nap time! I am now used to motherhood and having way more fun with it than just the normal fun.
Dolphe is still tending to our little garden. We are about to start planting more. Right now it is still just corn and onions. We have a list of veggies, herbs, and fruit/berries to plant. I am not up to much, busy taking care of Kaylee and keeping my OCD up with cleaning the house. While we were in Idaho I got some fabric to make Kaylee two blankets. Good luck to me sewing straight lines. That's my project this week to get those done before we leave again.
While we are gone Dolphe will paint Kaylee's room. I still have to pick the colors, I'm still deciding between a few. I painted letters for her room and they are up, but that's all I've done so far. I have more ideas in my head but it's just a matter of figuring out how to make them.
After three years of marriage we finally ordered our wedding pictures. We just kept putting it off all that time. So we have wedding pictures up besides the ones from our cameras! We are ready to take our little photogenic ham for some professional pictures. Speaking of - here's some recent pictures.
That was Kaylee's first feeding of solid foods! She took right to it - thankfully. The second picture looks a bit jokerish but she's still just so cute.
I put her in the baskets while I was folding clothes and she just loved it. That's our girl!

Happy Valentines Day! (Don't ask why I put on pink socks instead of red.)
You are now caught up! Blog you later! Yes I did just say that and yes I am that dorky.

Kaylee is now four and a half months, at her appointment she measured in at 26 inches, 16 lbs 4 oz. She is as big as a 9 month old. What a giant! At what point do you think they can tell if a baby will really be a giant like Andre? Hmm.
During this last month I read the Twilight series (while I held Kaylee so she would sleep), and have started the series again. We started our little garden, for some of the plants a bit too soon. In the ground we have thriving corn, white onions and dead zucchini. We have watermelon, jalapenos, tomatoes, parsley, oregano, cilantro, broccoli, pumpkin in a little starter greenhouse thing that we grew from seeds. (Insert picture here - I have to fiddle around with our silly computer pictures to do it - it's been too long and yes I am computer challenged).
On Sunday we made our very own mozzarella cheese! It was way easier than we thought it would be. It took about 30 minutes and it was good. Naturally, we made pizza and it was pretty much delicious. Once we perfect our process and recipe we'll share. We have a really good pizza dough recipe that I need to put on here. We've been using it for about two months.
Tomorrow is our third wedding anniversary. It seems like much longer - in a good way. We only have tenative plans so far to celebrate. In years past (the last two) we've go out of town. I'll let you know what we do.
I hope you are all well. I'll try to keep up.
