puppy love

Kallen has always loved Kobe.  Ill be honest, I was a little worried about how Kobe was going to be with Kallen, as I didnt grow up with dogs so I didnt know what to expect.  I know all dogs are different, but I have been pleasantly surprised on how our puppy (who isnt a puppy at all, but I just call him that) has been with our baby girl.  It isnt all perfect, but Kobe does really well and it is pretty cute when he lets Kal lay and climb all over him :)


Kal thinks Kobe is the best thing since sliced bread.  I am not sure if Kobe feels the same way, but at least he doesnt mind love and cuddles from Kal :)

pumpkin patch

I love the first 3 weeks or so of summer.  Same with spring, and even winter (Christmas is my favorite holiday).  Then I usually get over it (there are obviously some loves about each of those seasons throughout their time, but that also has alot of factors that have to align perfectly to make it work) and want fall to come.  Fall is my favorite season.  The changing leaves, jumping in leaves, cooler weather, sweatshirts, football, Thanksgiving, approaching of Christmas, apple cider, anything with fall, you can bet I love.   I have dreamed allllllllllllll my life of bringing my children to the pumpkin patches and apple orchards.  I was just so happy to be able to bring Kal this year!  Ill leave the rest of the post to our pictures, I cant wait for many more pumpkin patches in our lives! 
we went with Hope & Finn too!!
Kallen and Hopers loved the bunny's and roosters in the pen

I love my sweet little pumpkin!!

Our weekend

We had a wonderful weekend!  Daddy took yesterday off because of the vikings game on Sunday night so we were able to enjoy 3 days together!!  (I didnt take hardly any pictures, so these are just random ones, because a post without pictures for me isnt too fun!)
On Friday we just hung at home and it was great!  I love nights in, they are the best! 
On Saturday we watched Uncle Chris' football game via internet, because his game was in South Dakota.  Kal even watched for a little bit, it was hilarious!  She cheered and everything.  Uncle Dave & Auntie Ton came over and we had a fun game night!  The girls are on a winning streak for rook, hopefully that will continue!!

On Sunday my headache (that I got on Saturday) was pretty extreme and since nothing seemed to help we had to miss church.  I was so bummed because I just hate missing but there was no way I was getting myself ready and Kallen and Joshua:)  Daddy took over though and I slept in before our busy day!  We headed to Grandma Darla's to visit Auntie Nikki before she went back to college, then to G&G Nixon's where the other side of the family was and then home (for another nap for momma's headache Kallen) before the big Sunday night football game!!!!!!!  We are Vikings fans, but boy, they make it tough!  We had fun as always though at Uncle Jayson & Aunt Bethany's!!!
sporting their viking gear...Finn was sad about how the game was going though!

On Monday auntie Beth text asking if we wanted to meet at IHOP for lunch (since Uncle Jayson was home too!) and it was so much fun!!! 

We spent the rest of the day hanging low at home, which we all needed.  Today we are back in a routine and loving this fall weather!  Happy week friends!!

10 months

It would seem that I have 18 kiddo's and a huge house to manage and that is why it is so difficult to blog...but, that is not the case!  Minnesota has been having some beautiful weather, so we have been taking advantage!  This week it is finally turning to our 'normal' October weather, so hopefully ill be back to some more regular blogging, as we will be inside the house more.  I am looking forward to the cooler weather though, this heat was hanging on a little too long....anyways, here is Kalpal's 10 month post:
Holy cow!  10 months old?  Only 2 months until your 1st birthday??  I cannot believe how fast time goes with you, Kal!  These past 10 months have flown by in the blink of an eye! 
You are wearing size 4-5 diapers

Wearing mostly 12-18 month clothes, some 6-12 month still, depending on the brand/style

You love when your daddy gets home from work.  When you hear the garage you crawl super fast over to the door and squeal when he walks in!  It is pretty darn cute!  
You take a 5-6 (sometimes way less)oz bottle every 4-5 hours (usually 6, 11,3-4, 6-7)

You used to sleep through the you get up a few times, either from nightmares or to check to make sure we are still there :)  You go down around 7-730 and usually wake up around 11, 2, 330,430, and then 545-6 am for the day!  Happy as can be!

You eat cheerios and yogurt for breakfast every morning. 
You like turkey, but not a huge fan of chicken yet.  You love cheese, applesauce, noodles, carrots (cooked of course), sweet potatoes, banana's, eggs and goldfish
You have 2 teeth now!  Boy oh boy, you let us know you were not happy about it.  :)  You got them when you were 9 months and 3 weeks.
You are so close to walking!  You can stand on your own steadily and have taken 1 or 2 steps but then get nervous and sit down.
You have some serious sass and attitude already...I am nervous for the teenage years already!
You are not shy about telling us if your mad or upset or feel you need something (see above statement :)
You still love Kobe and I know you wish he wanted to play more...
 You love watching 'big kids' such as your big cousin Hope!  It is so fun to have cousins who we get to see so much! 
Your new thing has been trying to climb up on everything!  This includes, furniture, stairs of course, gates, people, animals, pretty much anything.  You are a crazy girl!
You are such a happy little girl, your smile just makes my heart want to burst.  We are so unbelievably grateful for our baby girl! 

Kali, we love you so much!!!   I wouldnt trade my days (just my nights, kidding!!!!) with you for anything.  I truly treasure each and every single moment with you!!
