Playing Football

This past weekednd we went to visit Nana and Papa. It was Nana's birthday on Saturday (and Auntie Shawna's too!) so we celebrated all of our birthday's and our anniversary together with Nana and Papa. Nana made French Dip Sandwiches for us, they were very good! While we were there Greg and Brandon were playing Football. Kylie decided that football looked like a fun game to play so Daddy asked her if she wanted to play too. She could not miss out in the fun and joined them. They had so much fun, here is a video of her playing football and doing her touchdown dance at the end - too funny!

Her Spine

Yesterday Greg and Kylie went with me to my Ultrasound appointment. It was just to check size and make sure the baby had all of it's organs it's supposed to have (which it does) and to see what the due date is. Well our due date when we walked in was December 2 and according to the Ultrasound it should be November 26, which is the day before Thanksgiving. I haven't talked to the doctor to see if he is going to change it on my file or not because he said if it was a week or more he would change it, and its barely a week so we'll have to see. We were asked if we wanted to know the sex of the baby when we got there and we told the technician only if she could really tell, if not we were fine with not knowing. I was absolutely convinced that it was a boy, I've had three dreams that said it was! However I am wrong we are expecting another little girl. Kylie is very excited that she is going to have a sister.

Then after the ultrasound was all done she said she wanted a brother too! I told her only one at a time but that maybe if Mommy and Daddy decide to have another baby it would be a baby brother, but she said "I don't want to wait again!"

She was so cute during the ultrasound she just kept watching the monitor. At one point the baby yawned and moved her hand and I told Kylie she was saying "Hi Kylie I Love You" Kylie's eyes sparkled and she grinned from ear to ear.

Saying Hi to Kylie and Daddy!

We are very happy with the outcome, she looks healthy and that is really all we asked for. We really didn't have a preference either way - just healthy. And Greg has called both kids now before we found out, I have been wrong both times!

Playing Games

Last night when Kylie and I were getting ready for bed it started thundering outside. Kylie asked me what the noise was and I told her it was thunder. She asked me what thunder was and I told her it was just Jesus playing games in heaven. This is the exchange between us that followed:

I think Jesus is playing with his friend Mary.

Is Mary is friend or his Mother?

She's his Mom but I think he's playing games with her because sometimes you play games with your Mom.

That thunder sure is loud.

I wish he would just stop playing games because I'm trying to sleep. (this was said just before she fell asleep)

I never heard it thunder again after she made the above statement. When I was telling Greg about what she said, he said "Well at least she knows how to get through!"

The Dentist - A Proud Mommy Moment!!

Today Kylie had a cleaning at the dentist. The last time we went was in November, she sat on my lap and only allowed them to clean one tooth. That's right - only one!

I have been telling her for a couple of days that she would be going to the dentist to get her teeth cleaned and checked. She seemed OK with in, maybe even somewhat excited. So today was the big day, I woke her up this morning and told her she was going to school and then I would pick her up and take her to the dentist and then back to school again. I told her she didn't even have to take a nap (which she was beyond excited about). When she heard the dentist she told me very matter of factly that she was going to sit in the chair like a big girl and I could just wait for her to be done!

And she did exactly what she said she was going to do. She sat in the chair alone, let them count her teeth, use the metal scratching device, brush her teeth with the electric toothbrush, even floss, and put fluoride on them! Then she let the dentist come in at look at her teeth through his funny glasses. I was so proud of Kylie. She was such a trooper. They gave her a prize and she has told everyone that would listen what a big girl she was, she is very proud of herself - and so am I.

Helping Jesus

Today as Kylie and were driving to school this was the conversation we had:

"Mommy, when you die you go to heaven and you get to help Jesus with all of his work."

"Your right"

"Then when all the Mommies, Daddies, Grandpas, Grandmas and the Kylies die they all get to be together again and they are so happpy to see each other!"

"Your not going to die anytime soon are you????"

"No only old people die, and I'm not old."

I guess in her mind since she's only 3 anyone that an adult must be old. I was quite taken aback by this conversation because it seemed like it came from no where. She was just sitting in her booster seat eating muffins and looking out then window. Apparently I was unaware that when she was looking out the window she must have been doing some thinking.

This is Kylie's first legible copy of her writing her name. She has been trying to write it for a while and it as never very legible, we are so proud of her! She has known how to spell it out loud it seems like forever. I believe she was about 2 when she learned how to spell it. I used to sing the song BINGO to her and change the name to KYLIE and it seemed to be really effective.
