Having fun...

Spring break was a few weeks ago.  We went down to the metroplex and had a great time.  We got to see my dad and visit lots of friends.  The weather was great and it was just nice to get away for a little while.  It was especially nice spending time with my husband since he works 7 days a week and we rarely get to do anything fun.  Also, while we were there the bluebonnets were blooming and beautiful.  We stopped for a little to take some pics Kai in them. 

Kai LOVED the carousel at the mall.  He rode it three times.  I wish we had one here that he could ride all the time.

Kai also loved playing with Jim and Donna's kids.  Here he is with Ben playing angry birds. 

I love this pose.  I don't know why he is standing like that but I think he is terrible cute.  He and Ben loved to play store.  

Playing in the sand.  All the kids loved putting the sand in the dump trucks and taking it to another part of the yard.  Hours and hours of entertainment.

This is me and my beautiful friend Donna.  It was so nice to see her.  It had been too long.  While there she and I got pedicures for her birthday.  It was nice to relax and get to catch up.

Kai cuteness...

It's been a long time since I posted about the adorableness that is Kai.  So here's some things he does or says and one of my all time favorite pics of him...enjoy.

*He loves to chase the dog.  In the backyard he will ride his bike while he chases the dog around in circles.
*Thanks to his Gamma he has an obsession with "picking up the poop" in the backyard.  While I enjoy that he is already doing chores, I kinda find it weird!
*He loves his vitamins.  He asks for them multiple times a day, even after he has already gotten them.  When I give them to him he always tells me what animals he got.  It's super cute.
*Every time he toots he looks at me and says, "you tooted" and points at me.  He's such a stinker...literally!
*His Yaya bought him a wallet for Christmas.  He never really noticed it until the other day.  Then he put his fake money in it and took it with him when we ran errands.  At the store he wanted to pay so he handed to the cashier money.  It was adorable.  She got him "change" and handed it back.  He was very proud of himself.
*Every once in a while I will sleep in his room, if he is sick or his daddy is sick.  Or sometimes he comes into bed with me early in the mornings.  So we like to snuggle.  Lately when it is bedtime he will ask me to sleep with him and I will say no that he is a big boy and has to sleep by himself and then he will say that he can't because he doesn't have anyone to snuggle with.  It melts my heart and worries me for the future...the manipulation starts early. 
*He loves all of his grandmothers.  He has 6 but he sees 4 of them often.  Yesterday we were at Yaya's house and Grandma and GG were there.  He asked me to leave so that he could stay there with them.  I try really hard not to take things like that personally.  I really am happy that he has so many grandmas to shower him with love. 
*He took a bath last night and when I went in to wash him he had colored the faucet with his crayons.  He told me that he was painting a spaceship.  I love that he has such a good imagination.

I absolutely LOVE this picture of him.  That little face makes my heart melt.

Wait...what, she's not dead?

No I am not dead, I am alive and well.  I have probably lost every reader I once had, but oh well.  The apartment we were living in had free internet and it SUCKED so posting really wasn't an option.  We looked into getting our own but knew we would be moving soon/eventually so didn't want to spend the extra money.  In January we found a rent house and after a month of painting, packing and moving we are finally here.  Surrounded by mountains of boxes, but at least we are here. 

We got to empty our storage building which contained a ton of crap stuff that I haven't seen for 2.5 years.  My new philosphy is if I can live with out if for that long I probably don't need it.  Gonna have an awesome garage sale this spring!!  The house is great.  It's a good size and it has an extra room which we turned into Kai's playroom.  I am ashamed to say that kid has a ton of toys.  It also has a great backyard that both Kai and Chip have been enjoying.  Oh and the best part is it's one block away from the best park in town!!  I love this park because it has trees covering the play area (trees are hard to find in these parts) and no one is ever there because it's small and on the north side of town.

Kai is doing well.  Still in preschool two half days a week.  It's just amazing how much he has grown and how much he understands.  He's like a mini person!  He is also such a good boy.  Now he has his moments but most of the time he minds.  He is just so fun to be around.  He loves to tell stories and I try really hard to keep up and understand what he is talking about.  He LOVES Chip.  Chip doesn't love him as much.  But I know once Kai is older and can play with him they will best friends.

Here's a cute Kai saying.  "I'm hungy and dinky"!!

Win some stuff

Win Kai was a baby I used cloth diapers.  This website was a life saver for me.  It helped me to know which kind of diapers to use, which brands were good.  I would highly recommend it if you are or plan to cloth diaper.

And guess what, they are giving away LOTS of stuff.  She is having a drawing everyday for 12 days.  Today is day 1 and she is giving away 4 different things.  Go HERE now and register!!!!

Time flies...

Dear Kai Bear,

Today my adorable little miracle turns 3.  It is so hard to believe that you are already three.  Where have the last 36 months gone??!? 

There are a lot of things I would change about the last three years, but you definately are not one of them.  You have been a constant joy during some very rough times.  You are always there to do something terribly adorable to make me smile.

When I found out I was pregnant with you I of course started dreaming of who you would be.  Never could I have imagined anything close to who you actually are.  I go to bed every night smiling, thinking of all the funny, cute things you did and said that day.  Never could I have fathomed just how much your daddy and I were missing before you came.  It's hard for me even to remember the days before you were here...it feels like you have always been a part of us, that we have always been a family of 3. 

I cherish everyday that we share together.  Even though I would love to keep you small forever, I look forward to watching you continue to grow.  You truly are the light of my life.  A little 9lb 6oz miracle that changed me and my life forever.  I love you more than you will ever know.

You are my sunshine...

Fair Fun...

If you have ever been to the Texas State Fair, you know it is ginormous...it takes at least 2 days to walk the whole thing and see all there is to see.  While living in the metroplex I think we only went to the fair twice, which I was ok with...way to many people for my liking.

Here in the panhandle we have the Tri-State Fair. Yup that's right a fair for 3 different states. I LOVE the Tri-State Fair. It's a great size, has great fair food and if you go at the right time (Sunday morning) there's nobody there!! There are also a lot of animals, which Kai particularly liked.

There were cute tigers, some were only 3 months old.  I think this one is 6 months.  They just look so cuddly, of course until they claw your eyes out!!

This was the first ride he rode.  His cousin rode the motorcycles, but Kai didn't want to.


First time riding the carousel and he LOVED it.  He wanted to do it again and again!

He rode his first rollercoaster and he loved it.  When he said he wanted to ride it I was afraid he would cry the whole time.  He has a tendency to be scared of things.  But he surprised me.  I am so happy that he liked it because I love rollercoasters too.  I can't wait to take him to six flags and ride them together!

We had fun feeding all the animals at the petting zoo.

Kai LOVES horses.  I think it is so cute that he still calls them "neigh neighs"!!  This was his first time to ride a horse (pony) and he LOVED it (i know, im using loved way too much).  He screamed and would not let go when his Gamma tried to get him off of the pony.  I definately think owning a horse is in our future!
