Some Randoms

  • Today I saw a picture of myself from behind and I just realized that I look like a man from behind. When did that happen?
  • I think I have horrible blood circulation because I frequently have one hand and/or foot that is warm while the other is cold. Or my extremities are always ice cold. Poor Lyla suffers from ice-cold hands and feet too.
  • I can't seem but help being a night owl.
  • This month was rough. Trying to find a place to live (searching searching searching, viewings viewings viewings), plan New Beginnings, everything else at home being neglected, and winter. Winter winter winter.
  • My goal of being on time to things is getting better.
  • I should fix my teeth. I've realized that my left front tooth is significantly longer than my right. It's true.
  • Lyla loves to cuddle with me and not with her dad. She only cuddles with him if I am cuddling with him too. Then we do a family cuddle. I treasure those moments because I am pretty sure that would be pretty inappropriate later on in life, haha!!
  • Lyla's new tricks are waving, blowing kisses, clapping, and dancing.
  • Another thing... Tonight we knelt down to say family prayer and Lyla sat up to kneel just like us and then she folded her arms as she saw us fold ours. We praised her to no end and she loved that she was following what we were doing. We weren't sure if it was a fluke but then she unfolded her arms and then we asked her to do it again and she did it! NOT a fluke! So I ran and grabbed my camera and got these adorable shots...
Checking with dad to make sure she's doing it right...

So reverent. Now if we can only get her to stay that way, haha!

She sure knows how to make her mommy's rough month seem like life has been great all along!

  • I have really been trying to figure out what to do with Lyla's hair lately. She throws off headbands but I just bought some stuff to make more cute ones (she only has one that fits her) and I'm going to try to get her to wear them. She hardly has any hair, it's very fine, and it's dark. And it's way longer in the back than in the front (pure mullet) and she has some serious culdesacs (sp?). And occasionally, she'll get a little flip or curl here or there but never really consistently. So, tonight before bath time, I thought I would experiment by putting moose in her hair and this was the result...

If she had more hair, it might look cute. But instead she just looks like a hobo kid.

  • Lastly, Lyla has been getting teeth like crazy and she has been a champ about it. She has her front 7 (almost 8), and has a few molars coming in on both sides. If you click on this picture, you can blow it up and see her bottom left molar coming through.

That's all for now. Time for bed so I can exercise tomorrow morning and get rid of my man body. Goodnight.

haha, kelly you do NOT have a man body! at all. you are cute cute cute.

when you say culdesac do you mean cowlick?

lyla is darling. i wouldn't worry about her hair. pearl didn't have hair for a long time either and wouldn't keep things in her hair either. sometimes people thought she was a boy but...eh.

I LOVE the pictures of Lyla getting ready to pray. SO sweet!

brooke and tyler said...

seriously. you do not have a man body, but you did give me a good laugh. and your tooth is not longer than the other. i have never noticed such a thing.
i also wondered if you meant cowlick too?
and...don't worry about the hair. katelyn had a mullet for SO long (and still does) but we still think she's cute.
and, i would absolutely LOVE to do your pictures when it gets warmer.

I don't know what to do about Charlotte's hair either. It always looks crazy no matter what I do. Yesterday I used a comb, tons of water and some of days wax to try to make her outrageous cowlick in the back lay flat, but 5 minutes later it had "boinged" right back up again. Are you liking your new place? You should post pictures. Miss you!

A culdesac is basically what I call a receding hairline :) You know the two spots on the top of heads that start to bald first... they look like culdesacs! Not that they're bad... plenty in my family have some serious ones. Haha, I realize that I am the only person who calls them this.

I looked at the picture, you so don't look like a man from behind. Crazy lady!

Rach said...

Love this post!
You are beautiful. Lyla is beautiful. Nate is beautiful.

Michael and Shelley said...

Awww I love how she is praying like you two!! And you do not have a man body!!

Michael said...

You do have a man's body and it is a cul-de-sac. You can also call it a peninsula.

Elena said...

Kelly, you do not have a man body! you did make me laugh. Very cute post! I love how cute and reverent Lyla is! Such a smartie.

I love the picture of her praying. How cute is that! Can't believe she has so many teeth. My little one must be slow in that department.

I LOVED this post because it's filled with all the random things you'd tell me about as we sat around the kitchen table playing 42. I'm now missing you like CRAZY and wishing Jared could take reverence lessons from Lyla ;D Love you guys!
