Kaiya and the boys

Kaiya is the first girl cousin on my side of the family and it was really cute to see the boys coo over her when they were here for her blessing. My sister Andrea kept telling my how Carson (top left) was so excited to play with baby Kaiya, we don't think he understood that she is not much fun to play with yet but he was really cute talking to her and trying to get her attention. You can tell that Benny(top right) is a big brother too because he just bundled her up and held her like a pro. It's pretty cute to see how much they love her already.

laughing kaiya

Kaiya always wakes up in the morning giggling so I guess in that sense she is definitely not like her mom. I am not a morning person as most people know but it always makes me laugh to see her giggle in the morning.

Growing baby

Kaiya had to go in for her two month check up (oh my goodness I cant believe my baby is two months old). Anyway she got her first immunizations and these are her battle wounds. She only cried for a few seconds and then she was fine but she was fussy for the rest of the night after that. She tipped the scales at 11 pounds even, so she is getting pretty chubby as you can tell by her cheeks and thighs. She finally outgrew her newborn diapers.

She is starting to get pretty good control of her head. She'll be rolling over before we know it.

Kaiya's blessing

Matt blessed Kaiya at church last Sunday and both of our families braved the weather to come. It was a fun weekend and we were glad everyone was able to make it safely.

The blessing dress that Kaiya wore was actually my blessing dress that my grandma made 25 years ago. This is my grandma who made the dress.

This is the first time in over a year that all of my siblings have been all together, we were still missing my two older sisters husbands who weren't able to make it.

Maybe they look more alike than we all thought!

All tired out

Everyone keeps asking how much sleep we're getting or not getting I should say, and I think that these photos give you an idea of how sleep deprived we really are.

Bath time

These are some pictures of Kiaya's first bath, they are kind of old but our internet hasn't worked very well lately some I'm trying to catch up on some pics. She didn't like the bath very well, she hates to be cold! Once she warmed up she was glad to have it over.

Photo shoot

My friend Jen is trying to get into photography and did some practice with Kaiya a couple weeks ago. It was fun and she did a good job even though Kiaya was kinda grumpy that day because she was so tired. These are a few of our favorite shots.

baby kisses

It's amazing how tiny their hands are and how fast they grow

This one's our favorite

We thought she looked like a little porceline doll with her blue eyes in this one
