Excuses excuses!

I have tons of them. But my latest is that I am currently stealing (shhh!) internet from my sister who lives next door, and lately it been SUPER slow. I think the storm we had a few nights ago might have something to do it with it.

The biggest news lately is that Ky is sick (surprised? I thought not). The doctor said that his throat was red and his lungs didn't sound all that great, so she prescribed an antibiotic in hopes of nipping any infection in the bud. I told her that he seemed to be always sick, she told me to give him a vitamin and make sure that he got plenty of pro biotics as well. I'm hoping that this warm weather will bring my old happy, chunky Kyson back to me! He hasn't lost weight since his well visit on the 10th of this month like I thought he had, he was actually 3 oz heavier, even after all the diarrhea we've been dealing with! Besides being a total grouch and not eating very well, he's learning and exploring lots of new things! At the doctor's office there was a canvas that had the ABC's on it with pictures... I pointed to the monkey and Ky said "ooh ooh ah ah!" He was too cute for me not to squeeze him, which of course made him push away and frown at me :)

Kaedrianna is my angel baby as always! She's so good that I have to make sure to take time out to cuddle her, because although I love and adore this sweet baby of mine, she plays wonderfully well in her bouncy seat or laying under her mobile, or swinging in her swing. I move her from one to the other and get the house clean and take care of Kyson and she is left to be nursed, kissed, hugged and then semi-abandoned (doesn't that make me sound like a wonderful mother? :)) If she is dry, full, and comfy, she is a very content baby, which is actually in some ways harder than a demanding baby (Ky's category for sure, lol).

Anyway, life in general is wonderful. Joshua is still looking for a job, and actually has another interview for a probation officer tomorrow morning. Pray with me that he is offered the position!! That's the key to us moving on in our life plans :) At least we're in an awesome place to be stuck!!

I always forget that I can post from my phone! We are in the car, an hour into our 6+ hour drive home from the beach. Bitter sweet. Our vacation was absolutely incredible, and we weren't quite ready to leave, but I am ready to get back to our King sized bed!! Kyson has had SO much fun! He loved the sand, loved the water, loved the kiddie pool, and LOVED his first ice cream cone! Chocolate Ben & Jerry's :) Miss Kaedrianna has been her sweet self the whole time. Sleeping through the night, laughing and cooing, smiling when anyone talks to her. She looked completely adorable in her swimsuit (she was almost too long for it). Josh and I both avoided getting sun burned, woo hoo! Josh got on the water slides at the resort, and floated in their lazy river. My favorite thing was to just sit on the balcony, enjoying the breeze and the view. It was an incredibly relaxing vacation... More details to come! (pics too)

As Kade has gotten older things have gotten just a tad bit more hectic around here :) She likes to be held, LOVES to be talked to, but is a complete angel otherwise. Seriously, she definitely gets the "Best Baby Ever" award! She's sleeping anywhere from 6-9 hour stretches at night (abt 50/50), nurses in bed with me and goes right back to sleep (I lay her back in her bed about 1/2 the time). She nurses like a champ, just about every 2 hours, sometimes she goes 3! A swaddle baby, she is! She coos and smiles, and has great head control. At her last doctor's appointment she was in the 75th % for weight and 90th for length, while Kyson is super skinny (like 10th %) and about average for height (55th%). He's talking up a storm! Josh and I took Kade and Kyson (along with Tab and her two) to a strawberry patch to pick berries and he figured out how to say "strawberry". Josh got an incredibly funny video on his phone of him saying it, but he hasn't figured out how to upload it yet. And we got some decent pictures too, but I have lost my camera cord yet again. I really miss my laptop!!

We're scheduled for the beach super soon!!!!! I can't wait to see how Kyson reacts to the ocean, it's his (and of course Kade's, too) first trip to the beach. I need to start our packing list, so that I can think through everything and get organized!

uploading pics as soon as I fine that missing cord!
