Surf City

A few weeks ago we rode our bikes down to the beach to watch a little bit of the U.S. Open for Surfing. There were soo many people there. It was pretty crazy. I wore shorts and a t-shirt and was completely overdressed! I decided Kale can never be a surfer because there were too many girls wearing nothing hanging around the surfers! But...it was still fun to watch some surfing. 

The kids were worn out by the time we got home.

Last Class

I've decided I need a little point-and-shoot camera. With two kids, a diaper bag, and usually 4 stuffed animals, I just don't have enough hands to carry all of that plus my big camera. We've been doing a lot of fun things (the beach, safety day, sitting in a helicopter, parks, splash pads, etc...) and I haven't taken any pictures because I can't carry my camera! I think this last month I had a record of taking the least amount of pictures I have ever taken. 

Anyways, these are just a few random pics. 

Swimming in the little pool. 

She's a fan. 

 Mylin is very into stickers right now. I find them everywhere. She thought she was hilarious by putting these on her legs.

Concentrating on putting on the stickers. 

Mylin had her last gymnastics class. She loved it. Here she was on this rolly thing to help prepare for back handsprings. The teacher said most kids hated that thing because they don't like the feeling of going upside down, but Mylin thought it was so fun. (I'm finding out that Mylin really isn't scared of anything.)

This was a little popcorn thing that popped when you ran and jumped on it. 

Mylin loved laying under the parachute. They usually got to do the parachute after the class part was over and Mylin really enjoyed it, 

This is her teacher, Miss Ashlee. Mylin was SOOO excited about her certificate. 

She carried it around all day.

Princess Mylin

The other day Mylin wanted to wear her Snow White dress. I asked her if she wanted princess hair, which of course she did. I decided to use the crown from her Tangled doll. 
You guys....I don't think I have ever seen her more excited then when she saw her reflection after I did her princess hair! I was dying! She was smiling soooo big and kept turning and staring at herself. It was awesome. 

She was dancing like a princess.

She kept saying, "I a princess!"

Kale - 6 months

This little handsome boy is now six months old. I seriously cannot believe he is already half a year. Insane. 

Today at his appointment he was:
19 lbs 13 ounces --80%
28 inches -- 80%
A big, strong boy! He had three shots today. After the nurse gave him his first shot, he was crying pretty hard so Mylin pushed a chair over to the table and held his hand while he got the rest of his shots! So cute! I would have taken a picture, but I was holding him down so the nurse could give him more shots. 

He has changed in the last month. He sits up. He can't sit in his Bumbo anymore. (Pushed himself right out of it.) He has more good days than bad now. He still has his fussy days (and every afternoon. He is always soooo cranky in the afternoon) but they aren't every day.

He CRAWLS! It's more of an army crawl, but he can get across the room in no time. He impressed all the ladies in Relief Society on Sunday when he crawled across the room and started playing with another boy's toys--(All the ladies that have babies his age, that is! He's the first of like 6 babies around his age to crawl!)

 He eats rice cereal and is starting on vegetables. 

Happy six months mister Kale.

Lil White Tigers!

So I have a friend who is awesome. Actually, I have more than one friend who is awesome. But for this post, I am talking about my awesome friend Kari. She is not only awesome, but incredibly talented. She is so sweet and sent Kale this super cool hat. Which she MADE! I'm so impressed. I love this hat so much. Kale has worn it like every day since we've gotten it! She even sent him three bow ties! Which are so dang cute I can't even handle it. Pictures of those to come. 

See the 'K'....for Kale. Obviously. 

He wears it well!

I think my favorite part is the back.

His birthday! 2012---Feb 7th.  I love it! I get so many compliments on it. 

Anyways----if you have a little boy, or if you know someone with a little boy, or if you are a little boy---check out her Etsy shop (LilWhiteTigers) and get one of these hats! (She also has other styles)
 Thanks again Kari. You rock.
