Easter Sunday

Here are some pics of the kids in their Easter outfits. I was so excited to buy coordinating Easter outfits. In fact, it was my first solo trip after having Kale. I wanted to edit these, but I just don't have time. Maybe one day!

This is the only type of smile we get. It's quite hilarious. 

Man, it is so hard to get a good picture of both of them! 

Isn't he so handsome?!

This is a little late. This week has been crazy busy but fun. We had Mylin's birthday party on Saturday. Then we had three different friends from Ventura come to see us! My friend April and her family came for Mylin's party. Then my friend Ashley and her family came and stayed with us from Sunday until Tuesday and then Regan came and stayed til Wednesday! --And on Wednesday Regan and I took Mylin, Rylan, and Kale to Disneyland. We did pretty good for two two-year olds, a two month old, and one eight month pregnant lady! We loved having so many friends over this week and we sure miss them. 

So our Easter was good. Mylin was so excited to find her basket from the Easter Bunny! And she loved finding the eggs.

The day before Easter we went to the town Easter Egg Hunt. Which was lame because there were no eggs. Just candy thrown on the ground. But Mylin had fun!

We dyed eggs on Saturday and I think this was Mylin's favorite thing. She only broke about every egg because she was so excited to get them into the dye. 

Kale: Not a fan of Easter.

Or his Easter shirt.

On March 25 we blessed Kale in Eagar, Arizona. We were down in AZ for Tim's grandma's funeral and we thought it would be a good time to bless him since we had family around. Kale got to meet both his grandpas for the first time and many of his aunts and uncles and cousins. (Sadly, I am just realizing I didn't get like any pictures of Kale with any of them...oops.)
Tim did a wonderful job and gave Kale a great blessing.

He would not wake up for pictures, but he still looks so handsome!

All of Kale's cousins that were able to attend.---Ok for some reason this picture cuts out Kason and I can't fix it. Sorry Kason!

Tim's family that were able to make it to the blessing.

My family---minus my sister who couldn't make it. A special thanks to my brothers and Kalli and Gav...they drove all the way from Phoenix on Saturday night (and went back on Sunday) just for Kale's blessing. Thanks to everyone who was able to come. It meant a lot to us to have you there for Kale's blessing.

Kale: 2 Months

Time flies. I seriously can't believe he is already two months old!

Two Months:
Weight: 13 lbs 12 oz ---90%
Height: 24 in ---75%
Head: 15.5 in ---75%

This month Kale went to Disneyland twice. He went to Balboa Island. He went to Arizona and had his blessing (that post to come soon).

Kale is still struggling with the acid reflux (obviously he is still gaining weight, but he throws up all the time and is constantly fussy.) The doctor is having me change my diet to see if it will help him. (I am completely off dairy, which is killing me! I can't have eggs, soy, nuts, spicy food, foods like broccoli...) So hopefully this helps him feel better.

He had his shots yesterday (Mylin had her shots too) and he handled the shots well. After we got home, he fell asleep for a little bit. He woke up and I was feeding him and all of a sudden he started screaming. Like hysterical. I thought after a few minutes he would calm down. Nope. The poor kid screamed hysterical for an hour. I'm not exaggerating. I tried everything I could think of to get him calmed down and nothing worked. After an hour I called Tim at work and I was crying because he had been crying for an hour straight and by this time Mylin was crying because Kale was and I wasn't paying attention to her because I was trying to get him calmed down and ahhh! It was horrible. I finally figured out that running water calmed him down. So, I gave Mylin a bath, which calmed her down, and the running water calmed Kale down, so it was a win-win. Anyways---I have decided Tim is doing the shots next time!---But thanks Tim for bringing me flowers when you came home. It made my day!

Kale sleeps with his eyes open sometimes. Totally creeps me out.

He is still such a snuggly baby.

He is starting to smile and coo. Just a little. It seriously is so awesome when he smiles because he doesn't do it very much!

This picture just makes me laugh. I'm pretty sure I have a picture of Mylin that looks just like this. Minus the extra chin! They definitely have the same lips.

About a month ago, my sister and her family came and stayed with us for their spring break. We had so much fun having them here, although I was not up for too much since I was still recovering from baby/bronchitis.

I didn't take very many pictures while they were here, but we did do some fun things. We went down to the beach and had some yummy shakes on the pier. We went to Balboa Island and looked at the shops and played at the park on the beach. We also went to Disneyland! (Speaking of Disneyland...Tim and I have decided to take one for the team. We bought passes. Being that we are only 13 miles from DL, we figured we might as well. So...we will find the best places to eat there and what rides are worth waiting for so when you all come to visit us, we can show you around Disneyland like a pro!---so hint:Come visit us everyone!)

(Side Note----Has anyone watched Supernatural on the CW? I've never watched it before but it's on while I've been writing this and wow. It is probably the stupidest show I have ever seen. Ever. Wow. I think I need to go wash my eyes out...)

Okay back to the post....So we went to Disneyland and made a whole day of it. We went right when it opened and stayed until about 11 pm. We were SOOO tired! We did have a little scary moment when during the fireworks Blake (my nephew) wandered off and we couldn't find him for awhile. If any of you have been on a Friday night you would know how insanely busy it was...but somehow Matt was able to find him in all of the crowds. are some pics.

Not at Disneyland. Tim was taking the girls on a bike ride.

At Disneyland...I carried Kale in a carrier pack all day. My back was dead by the end of the day, but Kale did so good! So cute in his little hat!

Waiting to meet the princesses. We met Tiana, Belle, and Jasmine. But I didn't take any pics. Oops.

I've mentioned before that Tim has a talent for falling asleep. He can do it anywhere. He honestly fell asleep during "It's a Small World"! I don't know how he does it...

Mylin loves Goofy, but got scared when he came over to dance with her! She ran away.

Mia wasn't scared at all and Goofy danced with her. So cute.

A few pics at the beach....Fun times. Come again soon!

Black and White

Sometimes I hate my computer! I'm still struggling on how to best get my pics onto this blog. Blah. So ignore all of the different sizes of the pictures...I'm still experimenting.

This post isn't really about anything. Just a few cute pictures. We went to Arizona last week and Mylin had so much fun with her cousins. She still asks for Mia every morning (and afternoon and night! Poor thing. She needs more friends!)

It was impossible to get a good picture of both of them.

Mylin was on one the whole time we were there. She was waking up a good hour and a half earlier than normal and wouldn't nap (which usually is 2-3 hours) so she was just kinda a monster the whole time! Sorry Mia...She got the brunt of it!
