All things Kylie

So in the last few days we have had so many new things with Kylie. As always, it is a rollercoaster of events, but I will be sure to glorify all the highs as much as I can!

Busting Out

I think it was like 3 weeks ago or so when Kylie started really putting up a fight when it was naptime or bedtime. Then about a week or two into it, Matt put her down and she fussed, but it wasn't the screaming to get out performance we had been seeing. Of course we were like okay, maybe she is getting over this whole thing. Umm...as soon as we shared those thoughts, we heard a loud thud, followed up with a brief moment of silence, and then a scream.

Yep, she did it...she hoisted herself out of her crib. We both ran upstairs to find her crying and walking out of her room. She wasn't hurt, so that was Great. We still don't know how she landed, but after I read her a few books and talked to her about how only mommy and daddy can get her out of her crib, she nodded as if to say I know, because that didn't exactly work out for me and I won't be trying that again.

1, 2 Buckle My Shoe

Just the other day, Kylie counted to 6 all by herself, and when I followed up with 7, she finished it off and said 8, 9, 10!

Chatty Cathy

Kylie has started putting 2 words together and it is so great to hear a complete little thought come out of her mouth! She just understands so much, it is unbelievable!! We have to spell so many things, and I'm sure it is only a matter of time before we need to start talking in a different language to keep her from knowing what we are saying....I have a feeling that will be short-lived too.

Sick Baby

So this morning, Kylie woke up at 4am vomiting....ugghh, it was a first time for us to go through this with her and it was nothing I would like to see again. Poor thing was so upset and scared about what was happening, and it just kept happening. At first it was every 20 min, then 30, and 40. It was great when she just passed out on the couch with me and slept for a little over 1 1/2 hrs. Then we had two more episodes following her brief nap. I sure hope it is all done with, because she was so frightened by it, and it was a constant battle of calming her and distracting her from wanting to eat the things we were told we couldn't give her. She did great through it all, and was bouncing all around by late afternoon!

Chattering even MORE!

So I mentioned above about how awesome she is doing with talking and putting words together. Okay, so just today and maybe even yesterday too she has been putting like 3 and 4 words together! She is absolutely blowing us away with all of this sudden burst of language development! Her receptive language has always been astounding, and now she is flooding us with all that she has always gotten. Love it!

Being 2

Okay, so we know Kylie just turned two a couple weeks ago, and boy is she showing it :) Ha...I can smile about it now because she is asleep. Just in the last few days the toddler in her has fully surfaced and it is not the most enjoyable of times. As you can guess, her new favorite word is No, and she says it with lots of attitude. Oh, and she likes to repeat it over and over and over again...just to make sure we understand her :) She is screaming or yelling about just about anything, and only wants her dada to help her...the tantrums just intensify if I try. Oh joy!

So yes, I think that is all for now...all I can think of anyhow. I know I still need to post all the details of her party. I will do that sometime next week.

Hope all is well out there in the blog world...I have been out of it for a bit, but now you have a bit of insight as to why.

Sometimes mommy-hood sneaks up and swallows me whole too. Life with littles is always interesting. And often exhausting! :)

But how wonderful all the good stuff Kylie is up to! LOVE it! LOVE LOVE LOVE it in fact!
