The past few days...

via my phone and it's horrible camera!

Thursday I took K to her pediatrician to make sure her ear infection was gone. While we were waiting on the Dr. she decided to read an Elmo book to her new Elmo backpack!

Friday I had to go grocery shopping & Josh was, I broke out the bribes-ha! She had animal crackers, a bottle of water, and these stickers. She loves making people laugh and so she was in Heaven when people was stopping us to see her stickers.

And, during our WalMart trip Friday I picked up this $10 pool, and it's been a hit! We spend 2 hours outside yesterday and hour already this morning. $10 well spent!

During K's pool time I've been reading "Water for Elephants" I started yesterday afternoon and I'm already half-way done! I need some other books to read when I finish.
 Any recommendations?

20 Months

Kaidence, today you are 20 months old!
That's only 4 months until you are 2!!! :(
And, that makes me a little sad!

You are growing up so fast, and while I do wish you would stay a baby, I love seeing you grow and learn.
You are saying more words everyday and can identify every body part on your, or anybody who's willing to let you poke their "EYESSS"-ha!
You love "Elno" and that's what your 2nd Birthday is going to be - Sesame Street!
{funny story, when you say "el-no" it sort of sounds like you're saying "h3ll no".oops!}

You love to entertain! Just today you were putting on a show for some girls in Best Buy.

You weigh 29.5 pounds, we found that out because you had a horrible ear infection this month.
Thankfully, as of today, no more ear infections!:)
Also today was the first time in for-ev-er you didn't act like a wild banshee in the Dr.'s office.
Praise Him! We are making progress

*Mommy will post pictures when she has her beloved camera back :(

What I'm Loving Wednesday

This is my first time ever linking up with Jamie for WILW.
If you'd like to get in on it too, head over to This Kind of Love & link up!

In no particular order...

I'm loving that Josh is finally off night shift! It's great to function like a "normal" again.
I'm loving that I gave Kaidence her first hair trim/cut. Besides the fact that I saved us many, many melt downs, I also saved $18.95! SCORE!
{***I promise her hair is not janked up & uneven. As you can see from the before she has some curls and the are just all tucked under. I promise!***}
I'm loving popcorn with honey! I know it might not sound good, but I promise it's really yummy!
I'm loving The Voice! I like the battle round, I just wish they would do more "battles" in an episode. But, so far my favorite battle was Cee-Lo's team!
I'm loving that my sister got Kaidence this shirt when she went to Disney. Kaidence lovies "Monnie"
I'm loving that Josh is suppose to be off this weekend and we're suppose to go back home. I cannot wait to hold Brayson more :)
I'm loving this cute face :)

Brayson is Here!

Sunday morning around 3:45 my mom called to tell me my sister Heather was in labor and on her way to the hospital.
I don't remember the exact times after that, but I do remember he was here at 7:31!
He is her first baby, and she had him that fast!
I'm jealous-ha!:)
He is so tiny & precious.
5 pounds, 2 ounces
19.5 inches long

And, Kaidence seemed to like him. Whenever he cried she was a little freaked out at first. But, once she realized he was okay she kept wanting to feed him his "bockle" and kisses!
{Aunt Amy, Big Cousin Kaidence, & Brayson}

They are suppose to come home today, and I'm hoping we can go up this weekend to see them & for me to get some good pictures of him!

Weekend of the Parks

Yes, I realize it's Thursday and I'm just now blogging about our weekend-ha! So what ;)

This {past} weekend was beautiful, and we took full advantage of the sunshine.
Friday, we took a family trip to the park.
Kaidence loves this little bouncy alligator.
And, I guess her Daddy does, too!

While we were there K made a new friend.
She kept saying "Scurl" every time she saw it's little face peep around the tree branches.

Saturday morning we got up super early-I'm talking 6a.m.-and headed to spend the morning at the beach.
I should have a lot of cute pictures of K in her little pincher's swimsuit, but I forgot my camera-boo! So, all I have to show for our fabulous trip is one cell phone picture.
After the beach I called K's Nana & Aunt Amy and they decided to come down for a little visit.
Josh went to work that night, and us girls went to Cracker Barrel for dinner, and then made a trip to Target!

Sunday we all went to the park in Fairhope.
But, before we left I had to get a picture of K's big girl pig-tails..just because!
After we fed the birds, we took a few pictures.
Of course, while we were there, K fed/chased/annoyed the ducks
And, even played some peek-a-boo.
