Kev's project

Kevin had to do a group project for one of his classes. I dont know what they had to be figuring out but they decided to do a potato gun. He made the gun and they all got together to do the project. It was really fun to watch. They used hairspray as the accelerant and I was way surprised how well it worked!! It was really fun! One of the potatos stayed in the air for over 9 seconds! Thats how high up they got it!!!

My 24th Birthday

So KEvin took me to Texas Road house for an early Birthday dinner last Saturday and This is what they make you do for your Birthday. What was I gunna say? "No"? yea not soo much. When they said "yee-haw" I had to wave the napkin in the air!!! And then they yell across the resturant that its my birthday and they say how old I am! This resturaunt instantly became Kev's fave and my most hated... but the food is really good:)

Turkey Break cont...

So we got Indee's ears peirced and I was having anxiety! I really wanted them peirced but Kevin wasnt too thrilled. He said that if I wanted to inflect unnecessary pain on Indee then I had to be the one holding her! Ive never held her for shots because its just too hard so I was soooo afraid!

This is what Indee looked like when we walked into the store!

Drawing dots on the ears and Indee having no idea what was ahead of her!

Ready... Set...

And they did it. She was not happy

So I was comforting her!!! And Yes the passy came back! There was noooo way that I was going to do this without letting her have the passy!

But literally 30 seconds later this is what she looked like...

Next it was her cousin, Addi's, turn and she wasnt soo cooperative. Maybe she saw Indee go first and knew something bad was gunna happen!

She was moving alot so her uncle Kevin came and switched spots with her mom

Addi after with her sooo cute-new earrings...

Turkey Break!

So we had a lot of fun over our Thanksgiving break!!! First and foremost it was sooooo fun to have Kevin home from work and school! We loved playing with him!!!

Here are a few things we did ove rour break...

Indee didnt have a pair of skinny jeans so of course I had to make her some:)

Daddy was trying to get a picture of her looking sad with this toy on her head but she loved it!!

Indee having fun in her toy! She loves it!

So Kevin's sister, her kids, brother and mom came up to visit. It was soooo much fun!
I was trying to get a picture of Jonathan and Braden together but they just kept moving. We probably took 20! but after a couple pictures Braden says "Hurry, my arms are hurting." We all started to laugh and told him that he didnt have to hace his arms up for the pictures. He looked sooo surprised and releived. HAHA. He had the biggest smiles for the rest of the pictures.

Indee opening her 1st present..

Indee being held by her cousin, Gavin. I kept trying to get him to smile but he wouldnt. When i would turn away he was smiling and laughing it up with Indee!

Brianne wanted her hair like a princess. We took a picture of it because she had to go to bed and she knew it would get messed up

Indee's 4 mos stats

At 3 mos and 24 days Indee now weighs 12.3 pounds (27th percentile), 25 inches long (82%), and her head circumference is 16.2 inches (60%).

She did sooooo well at her shots... Kevin was able to leave his class early and come with me! So he held her during the shots! The first one she didnt even move, but the second and third she started to cry. As soon as we put her passy in she just wimpered. I thought that she would be tired and out of it after because thats what happened with her last shots bu this time it seemed like she was more awake than ever. Her length of naps in total was 1.5 hours. Thats all the sleep she got during the day! But when we were feeding her her dinner she fell asleep in between mouthfulls of cereal. So we cleaned her up and put her to bed at 630!!! Because she hasnt been sleeping through the night lately, the dr told us to try to take her passy away. He said just do it cold turkey!! He said to take the passy away because thats what shes been needing to fall asleep. He said just lay her down and let her cry. Then she will teach herself how to fall back asleep in the middle of the night. So right now she is crying herself to sleep. Hopefully... she def has the crying part down:(

These past four months have been long but soooo fun!! We love having her in our lives and are sooo gratefull for her smiles and health!

KIT with our family!!

Indee is doing so well! She has been now rolling for about a month! But now she doesnt it like its nothing for her! At first it was a little difficult nd took alot of determination. But now she can just do it:) She can sometimes get on all fours but thats very rare! But she still has lots of time! We are working on getting her to sleep through the night again... the past couple of weeks thats been an issue! But she seems to do better if Kevin goes in there to put the binky in. If I do, then she just wants to eat! She gets her shots on Wed... I am sooo sad for her already! I have to go by myself because Kevin has a lab that he cant miss. I already have everything prepared for that day so that I can just come home and cuddle/comfort her! I tried pulling out her 3-6 mos clothes but they are still big... There are just sooo many cute outfits that I cant wait to put her in!! She is still in size one diapers! She loves being read to and loves when KEvin and I sing to her! We are starting to read and speak to her in Spanish! She is such a happy girl and we love her soooo much!

Kevin is still working soooo hard at school and work! he is working with me on my spanish (which takes alot of patience on his side:))

Me- Im just working hard on Christmas presents. Im still learning spanish and its coming along... Kevin and I were at the grocery store and we were only speaking spanish.. it turned into a big spanish lesson rather than grocery shopping.. lol
Yup! Indee now eats from a spoon. I know she is a week early of four months, but my mom started me on rice cereal at two months and I turned out just fine... Well at least I think so.. lol! She LOVES it... She hated the rice cereal in the bottle but with a spoon, she thinks its amazing! She does really well too! She doesnt spit too much out! I try giving her some water from a bottle and she hates it! So I have to syringe it into her mouth! Maybe I should try a sippy! I can't feed her fast enough!
I dont know why these are showing up side ways because they shouldnt be, but we got Indee's pictures done!! I LOVE them!!!... So my cousin hires someone to babysit her kids a few hours out of the week so that she can run errands... She was so nice to ask me to do the job before putting out an ad! It has been sooooo much fun!!! Here are her beautiful kids... They love holding Indee. They are such good cousins to her!! Indee loves playing with them! Indee's sweet face... She loves to suck these two fingers. And I think she is a lefty because she favors her left hand, but it might be too soon to tell She is doing sooo much better at holding her toys! She has been trying soooo hard to be able to hold onto things! So lately it has been kinda like this in Utah... And because of it, Indee looked like this at Daddy's game... We couldnt stop laughing when we put her in it! But at least she was warm!

family pictures....

My little sister did our family pictures!!

She is really good!!! she only charges $50 for the first hour and $25 for every hour after that.. weddings are a little different!! But im lucky... I am her sister so we do a trade off... I cut and dye/ highlight her hair.. and she takes our pictures:)

But everyone should check her out:)

KIT with our family!!

We are having soooo much fun here with our little family!!! It really seems like life is sooo perfect and it really is! We are at a great school, Kevin has a great job that will be great to put on resumes, we live in a good apt, in an awesome ward, we have a TWO bedroom, friends, food in the fridge, drs when we need them, a warm bed, knowledge of our Heavenly Father's plan, a temple 100 yards away and eachother! I am sooooo grateful to our Heavenly Father for giving me this great life. Its funny how life works... we are definately the most poor we have ever been but, seriously, the most happy.

Kevin and I have decided to study the word Love in the scriptures every day. And Love turned into learning about Love through the Atonement! It really is amazing! Heavenly Father really did think of every detail in his plan for us!! What an amazing Father to give us a chance to return to Him. I dont think I understood His love for us as much as I do now that I have a baby. I cant imagine how he felt sending His Son to die for us. I am so grateful for our brother, Jesus Christ; for making it so that I can be sealed to my family forever and for giving me that chance to live with all of our family again!! :) How can life not be great?! :)

Sorry I am on a happy high right now:)

Indee is doing soooo well... she loves rolling! She rolls continuously but mostly from her back to tummy! She is still in 0-3 mos clothes. She is super skinny and can still where newborn but she is super long and can fit into 3-6 months for length! So she basically swims in everything she wears:) She has now decided to eat about every 2 hours, which we are working on:) She only goes number 2 every few days, but when she goes SHE GOES. It gets all over her clothes but thanks to SHOUT we do not have stains!!! She loves standing ALL the time. You can just tell how bad she hates being confined and how much she wants to be mobile! She talks soooo much more. In the car we listen to primary songs and she coos the whole time. I would like to think she is singing:) She is very sensitive. When i watch shows where someone is even fighting shell cry. When she hears others cry, she gets soo sad and cries. She just wants everyone to be happy:)

Kevin witnessed a weird thing happen at school the other day. So Kevin stays pretty late on campus to study. (sometimes he comes home to study but it will take him triple the time because I am always talking to Anyways, He was studying and someone was trying to get into one of the professor's office. So another professor that Kevin knows asked the guy if he needed help. THe guy told the profeesor that he needed a study guide that a prof was leaving. So the Professor went into the room where the offices were to look for a study guide and the guy that needed the study guide disappered. So the prof comes out and asks Kevin if he saw him. Kev said "no" and so the prof went to look. He found that the guy had taped the door so that it couldnt lock. The professor came out and told Kev what happened and then told the guy to leave. Kev said the professor left too and literally ten minutes later that guy was back. He was waiting by the door and as soon as someone came out of it he quickly caught the door to go in. Kevin didnt want to deal with it and so he just called campus police and Kev left to come home. He talked to the prof the next day and the prof told him that when the police came that guy was in the professor's office! This guy was seriously asking to be kicked out of BYU. We dont know what happened after that but soooooo weird!!! lol... who does that!??! The profeesor told Kevin that the guy should at least get in trouble for trying to break in soo

But Kevin is doing good. He has playoffs for football and we hope his team goes all the way:) Intermurals at BYU is a huge thing. Kevin and I think its funny how serious people are about it.Kevin finally got new jeans!! lol.. He's needed them but I am told that ever since he got back from Ecuador he has not wanted to spend money:) But before Ecuador he spent tons on clothes:) He would just always ask me to fix any holes he had. But Im glad he finally got himself some clothes:)

I was busy moving!!! it was so nice though. So many people helped by babysitting and one girl (who works, goes to school, and has a two year old) came over to help. She moved my whole closet (shoes, jeans, hangers), which if youve seen my closet thats a task in itself! and she moved all my books!!! Seriously it helped SOOOOOO much!!!! But it was sooooo nice having babysitters... I would drop her off and whenever she needed to eat Id take her, feed her, and bring her back!! Thank you to EVERYONE who helped!!! Seriously I couldn't have done it without my ward!! But now everything is situated and organized. OH it feels soooo good:) I am trying to work on presents... now I have to have them done even sooner than I thought because we are flying home... so now I need to ship them home in time for Christmas! But this next week.. thats all that I might do:) I am still getting to go to the gym which is sooo nice of Kevin!!

We are just having fun here!! We are sooo excited to have family come up around Thanksgiving!!! We seriously cant wait!! And its gunna be sooo weird to go to Christmas parties this year with a baby:) But I am sooooo excited to go home and be with family!! Seriously, SOOOO Excited!!!

Play time

Indee got a new toy!! And she seems to like it... she is still a little small for it so we use blankets to keep her upright! :) But we got this because she ALWAYS wants to be standing! She might be getting a little too mature for this toy. Everytime we put her under it she ends up not under it and like this: So I put her back under her toy nd literally a minute later she was like this: Indee hates being on her stomach but everytime we put her down she is immediatly on her stomach. She will complain a little bit and so we will help her roll back onto her back. Its weird, she used to always roll from her tummy to her back but since she has been rolling from her back to her tummy she hasnt gone from her tummy to her back very often. She does do it but its like she doesnt get that she can do it every time or something. lol So here is a video of this...

So I took Indee to BYU to a little Halloween activity! It was really fun... they had lots of games, candy, and jump houses! AND it was all free! Soo Fun!!

Kevin was able to take a small break and come meet us!!!

We also went with these two cuties!!! Theyve become our best buds!!

So the kid's wanted me to go down the slide.. I felt really weird cuz I was the only adult! lol... so I tried getting them to want Kevin to go with them but they wanted me.. so I set my pride aside and went down!! :) It was fun... Kevin tried to capture us going down but the camera missed it:) So after we got down he told me to make a sad face!! lol.. WHy? I have no idea!!

Indee's mermaid costume....

So It has been pretty chilly here lately and on halloween night it was POURING!!! So we decided to nix the mermaid outfit and put her in the bear outfit so that shed stay warmer and yes we took her trick or treating:) Dont worry, we will save the candy for her when shes old enough to eat it!! lol... just kidding.. we've already eaten soo much of it!! haha

Here she was ready to go to the pumpkin patch!! We got there and it was rainging so hard that we decided to try it again next year:( But Indee was happy either way :)

Indee Laughing!!

So Indee really hasnt laughed but Kevin came home from Home Teaching and got this out of her:)...

Saturday, October 23, 2010


So Indee is loving to sit up and/or stand! Mostly stand!!! You can tell that she hates being in one spot and is wanting to be everywhere... when we lay her down she always tries soooo hard to sit up. You cant really tell from this picture but she is trying hard to sit up and this is what she is watching!!! She actually really likes watching football!

We were trying to upload a video but will take another one when Indee gets up from her nap:) It was of her yelling (happily) and standing:)

KIT with our family!!

Indee- Brings the strongest Spirit into our home that I am sooo grateful for! She really teaches me whats really important and I am sooo grateful to Heavenly Father for intrusting us with her!! She is sooo happy and just wants to smile. She always smiles when we are putting her to bed, especially when we go back in to syick her passy in. That makes it hard to not pick her up and snuggle with her. Talk about snuggling... she doesnt really like to do that much with me but LOVES to snuggle with Kevin!!! Its the cutest thing but I wish shed snuggle with me!! :) I am trying to work with her on rolling.. She twists her whole body and almost can roll from her tummy to her back by herself!! She definately scoots her self though. Its funny. I will lay her on one side of the carpet and come back and she is turned around on the other side of the carpet. How she actually got there? I have no idea. She is continuing to chew on her hands and is starting to be able to grasp toys and stick them in her mouth!! She continues to sleep about 8 or 9 hours a night which is really nice! She goes down around 730-8ish and that gives Kevin and I time to hang out for a little bit(when Kevin can be home. She is now in 3 month clothing and growing so much. Alot of people tell me how skinny she is and it makes me feel sooo bad. lol... I want her to pudge up so that I know I am feeding her enough:) But she is super long!!! We love having her in our home sooooo much!

Kevin- IS seriously more busy than ever!! He leaves our home between 6 and 7 am and TRIES to be home by 7pm but sometimes cant until 11pm. Which is hard for me but I am sure its even harder for him!!! He continues to be an amazing dad and husband!!! He is loving football. Their team is doing really well and everyone always comments on how good of a QB he is:) Its sooo fun watching him play!!

Missa- I am just working on XMAS presents when I get a chance. ITs going very slow because when Indee is awake I try and give her all my attention:) Ive been trying to work out when Kevin can come home early from school:) And a sad thing happened!! I ran over my camera!! UGH!!! We are gunna try to buy one at Thanksgiving but that means for a month we wont have a camera to take picture of Indee with:( But this week I am gunna go get her Halloween pictures done. I am really excited and I hope they turn out:)

Praying hands...

So she put her hands together and it sooo reminded me of praying hands! Really she was just chewing on them:) You cant tell from the picture but daddy was smiling at her and getting her to smile sooooo big! I love her soooo much:)

PS.. I love her eyes!!! I am sooo surprised that they are the way they are!!! Kevin and I both have dark brown eyes!!

Indee Rae- 12 weeks!!

So before our camera broke I took some pictures!!!

I made Indee some jeans while she was napping... The only jeans she has are too big so I used some jean material I had. But since she was asleep I didnt measure her and they are pretty big. But I put them on her anyways. I tried taking pics of them on her but she was sooooooooooooooooo tired! as you can tell....
Kevin calls this the breakdance picture:)...

Her jeans...

I seriously love her eyelashes!!! Everyone always comments on them! Even when we just had her and she was covered in gunk the nurses were like "look at her eyelashes". Kevin and I were like how the heck can they tell how long her eyelashes are.. lol

She will only sleep in her carseat if the carseat is moving (car, shoppingcart). But here she is when we got home from daddy's FB game!

Indee wouldn't look at the camera so daddy helped her:)

So in the morning I will lay Indee down under her play mat and she always manages to turn herself all the way around. Her head was originally by the elephants nose:)

This is what Indee looks like when she gets into her deep sleep:) I love it!! But what I dont love is that she loves things around her face when she sleeps... What I have to do is put blankets by her cheeks and she will immediately fall asleep... which is nice but then I have to stay awake for a while and wait for her to be in her deep sleep so that I can take the blankets away!!!:)
