Happy Birthday Kyle!

It's been two weeks already? Time sure has flown by this February. We've been staying busy with lots...packing (we move Friday yet again), work, baby showers galore, Valentine's Day, church callings, Kyle's birthday, little Rylan... who is getting more and more active, and much more.

Here's a quick picture of Rylan. I know the head is cut off a little, but he's got the sweetest smile... I had to share.

Today is Kyle's birthday!! We work opposite schedules with me at work during the day and Kyle working in the evenings. We don't get to see each other except for the middle of the night when Kyle gets home or the early hours of the morning when I leave for work. Both times are sadly when either myself or Kyle is half asleep! Although Kyle and I didn't get to see much of each other on his birthday, Rylan and I went to visit him at work for his dinner break. He got a big thing of balloons sent to him to let him know we were thinking of him too. I hope Kyle felt somewhat special on his big day. He's 25 years old! He is the best husband and father! He's so adorable to watch as he plays with Rylan and he’s great at taking care of him too! I appreciate all that he does for me (I can be pretty demanding at times). He's very patient and I love him very much! I couldn't find any single pictures of him... he's always with Rylan. :) Which is why I love him even more. Here's one of the two of them this past Halloween. Happy Birthday Kyle!!

Another big part of this past month has been the baby showers. I promise you that I've been to at least 3 baby showers just in the month of February. One of which, I helped decorate with making a diaper cake for the table decor. I'm posting this picture not because I'm proud of how it turned out, but because I told my crafty sister (Chrissy) who I can't keep up with.... that I'd show her how it turned out. I'm just glad it finally stayed together. :) So this is my first ever diaper cake... not as cute as yours though Chrissy.

So with all this baby shower talk, I figured now is a better time than ever to share my news with those of you who may not know yet. We are expecting our second child come August 17th! I am 15 weeks pregnant... again... :) I'm feeling great now that the first trimester is over. It's amazing the difference! Am I showing yet you ask? Well, I'm not sure. I don't know if it’s still baby fat left over with the previous pregnancy or if it's the new little one on the way. So we'll see how I fill out. Kyle and I are looking forward to it!

Other than the above, life has continued to be busy, but great as we take on each new day. I'm loving teaching and being a mom. We'll see what the month of March has in store!

Rylan 6 Months Old

Okay so I've changed my goal to every two weeks...since I'll admit, not a lot happens around here. I thought I'd post an update on Rylan this weekend. He is now 6 months old and just had his 6 month check up. He's doing great as far as gaining weight and growing. The pediatrician did comment on the size of his head though. :) He's in the 85th percentile in head size. Meaning he has a very large head. We thought that was kind of interesting. He's sitting up all on his own now and is rolling over well. He loves to smile, giggle, and talk to himself. We love this kid more and more each day! He's so much fun! I can't wait until summer, to spend more time with him (still 4 months away). Here's Rylan at 6 months old!
