4 Months Old!


I can't believe Kendall is already 4 months old! She is growing so fast! Time really does seem to fly! We had her appointment, and it went well. Kendall is in the 47th percentile for weight, she is 13 pounds 11 ounces, and in the 8th percentile for height, she is 23 inches tall. She might be a shorty like me. She is progressing well, hitting all the age requirements. I haven't started her on rice cereal yet, she isn't quite ready for it, she just isn't interested. He told us to put her in her own room, and so far it has worked well. She got some more shots, and that was not fun to say the least. She didn't have the same reaction this time. Instead of just sleeping she was cranky non-stop, and medicine didn't seem to help. Oh well. He also told us we should get her on a bottle so Dave and I can go on a date. We haven't had a date since April, and it is much needed. We have tried twice, and it is just a major failure. He wants nothing to do with it. We have tried different bottles, and everything. he she wont even drink the milk that gets in her mouth! She is very stubborn! Well I guess if we can't get her to take it, I will just have to feed her right before we leave, and stay in our small town. :( oh well. At least we will get some time to ourselves. We have been trying for awhile now to get Kendall on a nap schedule, and its pretty much hit and miss. If we leave and run errands, she WON'T fall asleep! She cries in the car the entire time! If we are at home, and they only time she will take a nap is at 11, and Dave gets her to fall asleep in the swing in her room. She refuses to fall asleep if i'm in there, which is making it impossible to take an afternoon nap. So frustrating. She has never really slept much during the day but she gets so cranky, because she is SO tired. *sigh. We just keep trying, she needs to get on this schedule. Anyways, some of her accomplishments right now, are: rolling over, laughing, smiling a ton, sleeping a full nights rest, holding her head up really well, and we are working on sitting up.

Racing Day!

So we were planning on having a quite Saturday about a month ago. But then Dave won tickets at work to Lucas Oil Speedway (Dirt Track) VIP Suite. I wasn't sure if I wanted to go, because the track was over and 1 1/2 hours away, and we didn't know how Kendall would do. However, I knew we wouldn't get this opportunity again, and Dave really wanted to go. The only reason I said yes, was that there would be an air condition room we could stay in and watch the race from. So we decided to do it. We left at like 4 in the evening, and Kendall cried for about 45 minutes, then passed out. It was a pretty drive, but this track was literally in the middle of nowhere! We got there and we had an enjoyable time. Kendall wasn't fussy at all! We left before it was over though, because we didn't want to be exhausted for church the next day. Kendall just fell asleep right away, then woke up for the last half hour. Dave enjoyed seeing all the races. He sat outside most of the night. It was just too loud for Kendall to be out there longer than a minute! Anyways first attempt was nice!

Dave's Family



So Dave's mom and two of his sisters, and two nephews came to visit us for a week. We haven't seen his mom in almost for years, and his sisters in almost 3 years. So it was so nice to see them.. While they were here it was a tight squeeze in our home, but it worked out fine. While they were here he went to Branson, and did lots of fun things. Like.... Zip-lining, went to the fish hatchery, maze of mirrors, Ride the Ducks, Lamberts cafe, Mels hard luck Diner, rode a train, and much more. It was a busy week, so it flew by way to fast. we were very sad to see them leave. We had a great time with them and will miss them.
