A Milestone reached!!

So I went to get Kyles three month pictures taken last monday and they actually turned out pretty cute. He couldn't really lift his head that well though so we had to prop some pillows underneath him to get a good shot. I was pretty happy with the picture. Then that next thursday I put him down on the ground on his tummy and this is what happened.

It was almost as if he was laughing at me. "Ha Ha Mom, I waited til right after my picture to pick my head up." Oh well at least he is picking his head up now. You can really see in these pictures also just how crazy his hair is. I try to get it to lay down but it just stick back up. Oh well maybe when it gets a little bit longer it will lay down. Until then we will just embrace the craziness.

Good Friends

Now that Kyle has been around for awhile, I was worried that Haylee might start to get a little bit tired of having to share the attention. She started out really good and liked having a baby brother. Now that he is not really bran new anymore I thought this might change. I was wrong, I think she likes him now even more than she did then. She doesn't seem to care that I have to make her wait sometimes for things that she wants because I am busy with Kyle. She just kinda shrugs it off and is ok with it. She talks to him all the time and is constantly trying to get him to laugh. She was making silly faces at him the other day and he started to laugh at her. It was the cutest thing ever. He thinks she is pretty funny. Also a couple of times when he was crying and I wasnt right there to get him, I saw her go and get his pacifier and put it back in his mouth. One time she even went and got him a little teddy bear rattle and tried to play with him with it. She is a good little mommy. She loves to help with him, and I have even let her help me change his diaper. She uses the very tips of her fingers to touch it like its hot or something but she still tries and that is what matters.
Trying to get a picture of these two is next to impossible. Even the professional couldn't do it. I tried like twenty times to get one. Everytime Kyle smiled Haylee wasn't looking or had a silly face. And everytime Haylee was smiling, Kyle wasn't looking or looks stunned, like in the one I have on here. So when we got Kyle 3 month pictures taken I decided to try and get a good picture of them. It was pretty much the same story for her though. Their pictures were so bad I didn't end up buying any of them. They are pretty cute though, it is just hard ages for pitures I guess. But I am really glad that they are getting along so well. Haylee asked me the other day if I could go back to the hospital and get a girl this time because she wanted a baby sister now. She also told me that next time we are going to have twins, a girl and a boy. All I could say was "oh really." I guess we'll see about that one. I hope these two are always such good friends.

Trick or Treat

Well we hope that everyone had a good halloween this year. We had a great one. We had a cute little skeleton for the trunk or treat. When I bought this outfit for Kyle I was so sure that it would fit him. When I went to put it on him it was really snug. This made me both happy and sad at the same time. I am thankful to have a healthy growing boy but he is growing so fast sometimes I feel like I can't keep up. We had him in the skeleton outfit for the trunk or treat and it was so small on him that I didnt want to put him in it again because its probably not that compfortable and not wanting to buy something else at the las minute I decided to just look in his closet and see what I could find.

I don't remember who gave us this little camoflage outfit but it worked good. I put that on him and put some cute boots on him and called him an army man. Seth said he looked more like a hunter though. Afterward though Seth came up with a cute costume that we should have dressed Kyle up in. His hair is constantly sticking straight up, so he said we should have bought him a black onsie and cut out a yellow lighting bolt and pasted it on it, puffed his hair up and he could have gone as electricity. I thought that was a cute idea. It didnt matter what he was though, he was cute in anything.

Haylee decided to go as a kitty cat this year. She changed her mind about a hundred times. A couple of weeks before Halloween we were at Wal Mart and she saw a Tinkerbell costume. She loved it and said that was what she wanted to be. I thought about getting it for her but with halloween still a little while away I thought there was a good chance that she would change her mind again. Well she did and she made a cute little kitty cat. I was actually really glad that she changed her mind because it was easier to make a kitty cat a warm costume and it cost less.

I decided that I was going to try to get creative with her costume and add a white tummy. I thought of the cat and the hat and got some white felt and just cut out her white tummy. I thought it actually turned out pretty good. I also thought that it made her look even more like a kitty cat. However while we were trick or treating someone asked her if she was a penguin and I thought maybe the white tummy wasn't a good idea. But I think it was just because she didn't have her ears on because they kept blowing off her head when she would run.

This year Haylee got to go trick or treating with her cousins. This is a picture of her cousin Chloe dressed as a bunny and Haylee ready to go out trick or treating.

This picture turned out kinda dark but this is the gang trick or treating. Hank was Thomas the train engine, and Dylan was a dark scary guy with a mask. His mask kept on scarying Hank though and he wouldn't even go near him. They all looked pretty good I thought.

At the beginning Haylee and Chloe were literally running from door to door. They eventually ran out of steam though. Here they are headed to the next house.

After it was all said and done I was amazed at how much candy Haylee got. Here is a picture of the final result. She was pretty proud of all her candy. Seth explained to Haylee all about taxes on her candy. I don't think she quite understood what he was saying but is happy to share a piece or two with Mom and Dad. We had a great halloween this year and Seth and I can't believe that next year we are going to have two little trick or treaters and we can't wait.
