5 months now!

Kaylie turned 5 months on Easter! I can't believe how big she is getting. Everytime someone sees her they can't believe how big she is getting! She definitely doesn't look like a newborn anymore! She is now 16 pounds (50-75th percentile) and 27 inches long (95th percentile!) She is my tall little girl.

She can now roll from back to front like a champ and can do front to back but only when she wants to! She can sit for a few seconds before flopping over and is getting so much better at lifting her head!

She loves when we stand her up so a friend of ours let us borrow their exersaucer and she loves it. She sits and talks nonstop. She doesn't quite bounce and at first she wouldn't put her feet down unless she had socks on! Not she is getting the hang of it!

She also loves to suck on everything and anything that comes near her mouth! This includes her new doll, hands, toys, blankets, anything! She also is getting good at eating solid foods. She loves bananas and pears and still takes her bottle so good!

She still fits into some 3 month clothes but mostly wears 3-6 months because she is so tall and lean! She does through sleepers like crazy because she can't stretch her long legs out! Where did this height come from?

Here are a few of my favorite pictures of her over the past month!

What does Easter and Arizona have in common?

So the answer to the title question! I am so glad that my track break and Derick's Spring Break came around Easter time so that we could head down to my sister Terra's house in Arizona. It was Kaylie's first trip, first Easter, and her first time seeing a lot of my family!

It was also the first time we have all been together in a long time! Kadin's blessing was so awesome. My brother Donny blessed the baby and Kadin looked adorable in his blessing outfit. I was so excited that I got his blanket done in time and it matched his outfit perfectly!I'm so glad we got to see these guys!

Kaylie had lots of fun with all of her aunts and uncles and cousin! Easter was lots of fun and the Easter Bunny spoiled Kaylie! She got to dye eggs, hunt for eggs, and got lots of stuff in her Easter basket

Sarah and Miranda dyeing easter eggs! Love these girls! Sarah kept coming up to Kaylie and saying how pretty she was! She also loved to hold her! It's fun to have Kaylie's big cousins around!

Of course Kaylie really had no clue what was going on for Easter but mommy and daddy did! She looks super happy to be finding eggs right?

But she did love all the eggs in her basket and her new dolly! I have so many other pictures but of course blogger is being dumb so I'll post more later!
