Chomp Chomp

Kaygan has TWO little chompers in there!
She had two shots this morning as well. One in each thigh. Thankfully, Bobby cuddled her during the shots. Kaygan and I both only cried for a minute! It's been almost 7 hours and no yucky side effects yet! Not sure when they usually show up, but so far so good! She didn't get 'the usual' shots though. Just a second Hep B dose and Previra, which prevents pneumonia. She'll start her other shots in two weeks... not looking forward to those either!

Kaygan's Stats at almost 5 Months

Due to scheduling conflicts for me and then the pediatrician's office, Kaygan didn't get in for her 4 month check-up until she was almost 5 months old... and this is what we were told by him:

  • Height: 26.5 inches long, off the chart
  • Weight: 17lbs and 13oz, off the chart
  • Head Circ: 43cm 95%
  • For her height, she is average weight
  • She has wide feet, and we'll have to purchase her shoes in "wide" later on unless they change shape
  • She is very very social and personable. Dr. said that at this age, how sociable they are indicates how intelligent they will be later on. He said we will have a very smart baby because she is very very friendly!
  • She should be eating solids now, basically whatever we are eating we can go ahead and mash up and give to her. Kaygan is very happy about this... she's been trying to get at what we've been eating.
So, that's how our little girl is doing!

4 Month Session

I took Kaygan outside today and put her in the grass for her 4 month session. She lasted for all of 3 minutes before she had a fit, but I think I managed to get a few cute ones!

Apparently she and Marli found something interesting in the grass!
And then she was done!

Visit from M'Leigh!

Kaygan's Godmother M'Leigh came to visit on her way to my cousin Amy's graduation. So, Kaygan got to spend a few hours with her! I think they had a good time!

Grants Farm

At the beginning of June, I met up with three other mommies who've had miscarriages and now have (or will soon have) babies. It was the first time I've met them, though we've been friends online for over a year now! It was SO great to finally get some face time with them, and meet their little ones!

So, this is Zachary, he's a few months older than Kaygan.
This is all three of the babies, and one of the daughters of Lynn, who was about 30 weeks pregnant at our get together.
AND the babies with her other daughter, Mikayla.
All us mommies!
Evelyn, who was almost 11 months at this time!

And Kaygan... pretty dazed and tired by this point in the day it seems!

Here we all are as we're leaving the park!
Mandy loved 'protecting' Kaygan. She's gonna be a great big sister!
Totally had a blast! Can't wait to meet up with my bump friends again soon!


Boy have I been a bad blogger! Here's some new stuff!

I love this pic of Kaygan... she has that "just wait, I'm up to no good" kind of grin!
My brother Samuel got to come back from Afghanistan for 2 weeks. My Uncle Steven and Aunt Sue had a 'welcome home' type get together at their house, though they weren't there for it! A few families got to come though!

This is my younger cousin Paul. He just wasn't quite sure how to balance baby and bottle at the same time with her facing outward... he managed though!
I made Kaygan a onesie just for the occasion!
Samuel meeting his niece for the first time!
He's in love!
This was all of the cousins and our spouses (and our kid) who were able to make it to the party!
Samuel LOVES Animal Crackers... so I got him a big container of them!
Samuel and Kaygan had quite the little chat! I think they stayed like this for 10 minutes!
She kept playing with his dog tags, and every time he'd look away, she'd pull on them to get the attention back onto her!

Kaygan and her 2 Godmothers!

The Rempfer cousins with Kaygan.
Fast asleep on Grandma Darling.
My cousin Jared happened to be in from CA at the same time Samuel was home. They came over with their twin girls, and my cousins Jason and Paul came over with their kids as well... here's a nice 'happy' group picture!!!
Kaygan started out asleep, and woke up to 3 crying toddlers and all of us grown-ups hollering to get the kids to look at us!
Finally safe in Daddy's arms... watching all the other kids play!

Who turned out the lights?

First attempt at cereal!

Hopefully it's not too long before my next update!
