It is crazy how fast kids grow. It seems like yesterday that Kylie was falling asleep anywhere and everywhere. She has developed quite the personality. She is so much fun. She has started to roll across the room. It drove her crazy that she couldn't crawl, so she started rolling over till she gets what she wants.

She is always smiling. When i go to get her out of bed in the morning, she just smiles up as if to say, "Look I'm awake!!! Isn't that something!" Even at two in the morning, she is all smiles. She laughs the most at night, right before bed. She gets really silly and will just laugh and laugh till she is too tired to laugh anymore.

When I come home from school, she is usually playing in the center of the room and when I walk in she just laughs and smiles. It really makes you feel so stinking special to have a little kid that just loves you to death and thinks you are hysterical.

Kylie snores. It is SOOO funny. She talks too, she gets both of these things from me. Whats funny is that it isn't a subtle snore, its pretty loud! I didn't even know babies could snore when they are this little

She is so curious. She wants everything and anything. Shoes, toys, food, clothes, her car seat, her two fingers, her toes, cards, phones, and anything she can get her hands on.

She loves being naked. Every time we change her clothes or diaper she goes crazy. She squirms and squeals and laughs. I never thought changing diapers could be SO much fun!

She loves to move. We bought her a jumper and she loves being able to stand up and see everything around her. It gives her so much freedom. She never really liked being on the ground.

She loves being around people. She is the loudest when she is around a ton of people. I think that she feels she has to compete for the attention. Jared took her up to bear his testimony once and she was up there talking, flirting and smiling at everyone in the audience. It was adorable.

She loves to sit up. She is getting really, really strong. She will sit up and play with toys, watch TV, or just giggle and talk to you. Staying sitting up is one of her favorite things.

Her favorite food is bananas. She recently started eating the purees and she loves them. She can't get enough of them, except for the green beans. She hates those. She just grimaces and spits them back out. She is a fan of yams too. Not my favorite.

she has started sleeping through the night a little better than she has been. i don't know what the difference is but we are loving it! Nothing feels better than sleeping six hours straight.

She likes dresses. She likes being able to lift them up and suck on them till they are soaked completely. I thought she was teething because she drools like crazy, but I think now it is just because she likes to just get things soaked just so she can change clothes.

I never thought being a mom would be so much fun!! It is the greatest thing in the world. I can't wait till I'm done with school and can just stay home and play!

There are two things that really bother me.

1. Bobby Pins-I hate bobby pins. I use them all the time but they never hold their shape. they always stretch out just a little, then they won't hold anything. what is worse is when they do it as the day progresses and by the time you get home, your hair has fallen apart. For example, yesterday I wore the "Utah Bump" By the time I got home, the bump was no longer on the top of my head, but the side. I looked ridiculous.

2. Tests that no matter how hard you study for, you still fail- I don't understand how I can study my butt off and still fail. I have one C on my transcript, one. I am taking Accounting 302 and I studied so hard for my last test. I got a 60. I went into the test understanding the concepts completely.I had no questions. I went in drew out my little diagram that is supposed to contain the mysteries of the universe and it didn't help. I'm not stupid, why can't I pass?

I know, silly, but oh well, what can you do?

So Once again we are back in Rexburg. Good to be back, but I have no motivation to go to school. I just want to be done. I want to be able to stay home and play with the family. I'm jealous that Jared gets to play with her every morning(she is happiest in the morning). Ky is getting so stinking big. She is rolling over, playing with toys and toes, talking all the time, and still not sleeping through the night. She is so sporadic. For like a week she will sleep through the night and then for the next two she will be up at four ready to play. Any suggestions on getting her to stay asleep?

I love Jared more than anything. I left him alone for two days while I stayed in Arkansas with my family. This was the result....
