Moving on By!

We are 8 weeks into the school year. Hard to believe that the 1st nine weeks is almost over already!  Open House was successful Tuesday night. I had 16 of my 19 kiddos come, it was a great turn out. My candy corn estimation jar was the hit of the night. I loved reading my students' guesses. There were 303 pieces of candy corn in the jar and one guessed 312. Pretty dang close! Kaylee was loved on by all. My kiddos got to see how little she really is and they kept commenting on how cute she is :) 

This afternoon Kaylee and I got to hang out with my friend Kathy @ a local pizza joint. We ate outside enjoying this lovely weather that is finally starting to feel like fall. Now, she is sleeping on my lap while I watch The Time Traveler's Wife. We are ready for a relaxing weekend! 

After Open House, wide awake :)

BTW, I love my new background and header! Welcome Fall :)

Manic Monday!

Mondays roll around too quickly these days! I love my Saturdays and Sundays with my baby girl. I cherish that we get to spend two complete days together each weekend. She is such a joy to be around. We went to a crafts festival this weekend with my mom and sister. I actually bought two yard decorations! I got a pumpkin to put out now and a gingerbread man for Christmas time. Proud of myself for making a purchase and a purchase that only cost $13.00!

Today has kind of been crazy being as I didn't get home till 6:55....Went to teach my kiddos and then went to our district's association meeting fulfilling my association representative duties. Thank goodness they feed us at those meetings. Free Chick-fil-a nuggets and brownies really help me make it through those things :) Barely got to spend time with my sweet girl today. We bonded for a brief moment over a late afternoon feeding, but she was one tired baby! Kaylee has been sleeping since about 7:15, hoping this means a good night's rest for all and not a middle of the night party! 

Tomorrow will be another long day as it is Open House. I will be spending my break and time right after school making sure my room looks semi-nice for my students and their families. Open House was always special to me as a kid so I like to try to make it special (yet simple) for my students.

Kaylee- 3 Months!

Kaylee is 3 months old today!

Sleeping: Kaylee had a rough patch with sleep this last week. She liked to party each night for a couple of hours before going back to sleep, but I think she is over that. Kaylee sleeps through the night at times, but also needs a feeding sometimes too. She does not really have an official bedtime yet.....she goes down inbetween 7:45-9:45 depending on how tired she is.

Eating: She eats about every 4 hours. She is still nursing in the morning and late afternoon with formula during the day and right before bed. She usually drinks 4 oz bottles, but I think we may need to up that soon.

Activity: Kaylee loves to smile and laugh! She also loves to chew on her hands. She is starting to swat at toys and tries to grab them sometimes :)

Napping: Usually one long morning nap and a semi-long afternoon nap with a mini-late afternoon nap :)

Favorite Place: Being outside :)

Favorite Toy: Her bumbo chair!

Happy 3 Day weekend!

Lake Time

Last Sunday, little Kaylee and I headed to the lake with 3 of my siblings. Eric was sick so he didn't get to join in on the fun. It was my second time to the lake this summer, but only my first time to swim! My dad was nice enough to waatch Kaylee while I went out on the boat. I rode in the tube, relaxed in the water, had JoJo swim with me, and even jumped off the jumpin tree. We ended the day with one round of croquet, in which I severely lost but it was fun. Ended the day with steaks for Kevin's b-day celebration. Great day!

Having Fun!

Swimming with my pup!

I promise Kaylee was there, she was just indoors lots of the time :)
