They’re here…

Keira’s great grandparents and great aunt and uncle came to visit her the weekend of the 19th.  Great Aunt Cathy of course couldn't get enough of Keira and had the strange ability to sooth our savage little beast. Which is impressive since Keira appears to have perhaps developed a slight fear of strangers. She did warm up to her great grandma and great aunt though.  Here’s a video of them spoiling her.


Here are some pictures of us all at dinner.  Mike’s grandparents treated us all to it at the Legacy’s restaurant. IMG_0804

Keira, my Aunt Sheri and I went to get Keira’s pictures for Halloween taken yesterday.  They all turned out great but when we went to leave we had a bad surprise.  My car’s battery had completely died.  So much so that it wouldn’t even try to start.  We ended up having to call my Uncle Kurt to come and fix it and luckily he managed to get it jumped so that we could at least get home.  I took it into the dealership today, after needing to be jumped again, this time by AAA and got a new one.  Yeah I have my car back…and most importantly working.

Sorry we haven’t updated until now but we’ve been busy and tired. First as you all know Keira had that diaper rash well after that she got two more.  The first ended up being because she’s allergic to Luvs diapers, which we had been given from our baby shower, and the second was just another one.  After that Keira got a head cold, which she still semi has (perhaps she’s inherited moms allergy to the rest of the world, or at least anything that grows.) Now she’s unhappy because of her shots, hopefully that will only last tonight at the longest.  I of course now feel like I’m getting sick as well but I know my allergies are probably the root cause of it and unfortunately they are known for making me sick at least a few times a year. Hopefully I won’t succumb to it but my ears and throat tell me they feel otherwise about it.

Two Month Checkup

We took Keira for her two month check up today and she’s now one ounce short of being 10 pounds. Whoo hoo!  Course we kind of figured she’d gained a good amount considering she’s heavy to us now.  She also gained half an inch in height making her 22 1/2 inches.  The doctor said she looked great but we have to work on making her lay with her head to the left (a problem from the beginning) and not the right since the right is now becoming flatter than the left. 

Besides that Keira received her two month shots (three shots in all) for five different things.  She of course ‘loved’ that and since then has been kind of mad/cranky/unhappy but who can really blame her for that.  Mommy had to rescue her from the ‘evil’ nurse afterwards and comfort her.  Mike volunteered me because I was close but I couldn’t watch.  Not because it would hurt her, nope, because alas I’m a huge phobic towards needles.  Which is why you might see why I kind of consider him evil for volunteering me.  

Look at me I’m Keira R. …

Yes, I know I stole it from Grease the movie but I don ‘t care.  Anyways here are some recent pictures of Keira.  And if you notice she’s getting really big in comparison to her bobby. (the pillow she sits in). DSC_0002DSC_0003

The Zen look or look at my feet                            I didn’t used to fit like this.

Watch out I’m crazy!~

Grandma strikes again…

Mike’s mom came out with his step-dad Morgan to see Keira again around the 5th of this month.  For her it’s a repeat visit but Morgan had never seen Keira.  Here’s some pictures of them with her while they were out.

Why is daddy in bath time with me…?

Here are some videos I shot of Keira and Mike in the pool together.

Damn this bath tubs huge…

Before the season ended (Sept. 26)   Keira joined Mike in the “huge” bath tub.  Keira though wasn’t impressed that daddy hadn’t heated it for her.  Mean daddy we know…but its not his fault the pool doesn’t have a heater. Isn’t she pretty in her cute little swim suit. 






Look I’m Foreign

My Great Aunt Janet and her husband Bob sent Keira this outfit all the way from Norway where they now live.  In the picture you’ll also see Keira’s new swing…which she’s not really fond of unless you stay right there.
