I thought I'd try this 18 month shirt on Kerstyn, and it fits her really good! It says "My Uncle Is A Soldier". I love the one of her holding her hands out. She sucked her thumb a lot yesterday, and now I know it was because she doesn't feel well. Well, she's a cutie even when she's not feeling good!
Hurry home Uncle Robert!!! We miss you, and pray for you everyday!!!!
Kerstyn's great Aunt Sharla and Uncle Doug came from San Antonio to visit us! Gramma & Grandaddy and Aunt Candice and Cali came too. We all had a great breakfast together, and got to hang out for a bit. Kerstyn got all kinds of goodies from Aunt Sharla & Uncle Doug - as you can see. This is when we realized that Kerstyn wasn't acting at all like herself - just more crabby than normal. After taking her to the doctor today it was all confirmed. She has an ear infection and a slight upper respitory infection with a sore throat! He said the ear infection was just starting to get bad, and so it was good I brought her in. She should be feeling like her normal self again in another couple of days - just in time to go see Aunt Katie for the weekend...yeah!!!
Kerstyn and Ashlee wanted to go outside while daddy swept off the back porch, but they just got to watch. Kerstyn wasn't too happy about it, but decided she was okay since she got to see him. She just adores her daddy!!!
Oh, and Ashlee was just too cute laying in her little spot on the couch - so I had to add those in :). She has grown to love her new sister, but I think she loves it even more when she goes to bed!

I came out from getting ready to go out to dinner, and Jason had made Kerstyn her 1st play fort. She thought it was the greatest thing she'd ever seen! She's started doing this thing where she'll put the pillows on the floor, and lay her head down for a few seconds for a breather or something (as seen in the 1st picture). It's the funniest, and cutest thing! She's just so funny. She cracked up when Mr. Blue went under the fort - she just kept laughing so hard - until he left.
Last night Kerstyn couldn't go to sleep. She was in her crib jumping up and down and screaming/yelling - so I took her out at 7:35. She played outside with her daddy in the grass, and had a great time! She seems to be more willing to try and walk while in the grass - compared to being anywhere else. She finally ended up getting pretty tired around 8:40, and went to sleep by about 9. Jason seemed to think that this would make her sleep in, but I didn't think it'd make any difference. She did end up sleeping in a little - until about 6:45 - so, he didn't have to get up with her until about 7:30. It looks like that's as much "sleeping in" as were gonna get. :)

Kerstyn loves eating! She always goes after the biggest piece of whatever she is eating too. I gave her 1/2 a banana with her lunch today, and I did end up having to take it away and break it into pieces. She stuffed the whole thing in her mouth. She's such a good little eater, and she's still eating her veggies great too! That yellow stamp on her hand is from our time at the library today - that's the 1st time she's gotton to get a stamp :). She also got to pick a toy out of the treasure chest. She's getting so big - too fast!

Kerstyn was getting a little frustrated because it was taking her daddy a little bit to get the skin off of the hot dog so she could eat a piece. She ended up with a few bites, and was happier then. These days her and I are eating our meals together. So, daddy is figuring out fast - that she expects some of his too! She loves her daddy!

Kerstyn loves playing with Blue!
Well, we've gotton no walking as of yet! I think she's just satisfied crawling, and when she does walk with her walking toys - she ends up going down on her knees. I think she's a little scared too of falling. So, she'll walk when she's good and ready! Otherwise, she's using her feet for everything. Everytime I turn around she's in like this karate chop position - it's too funny! I've tried to catch pictures of it, but she's too quick. She's always lifting her leg and putting it on her toys also - not sure what all that's about, but she likes it :).

Danimals - yogurt that's drinkable. They're yummy, and she thinks so too. Of course she drinks them with a straw, but I let her have this one to play with after she was done. The other pics are some close ups we took today - she was obsessed with the camera.
