Kyler Nicole: Five Years Old

19 Feb

Our sweet girl turned five a few weeks ago.

This may be my favorite time with her yet. She is the SWEETEST, most caring, funniest, silliest and smartest little thing. She is constantly surprising Chris and I with how much she knows. She is a sponge and soaks it all up. She had the best manners too. Rarely do I have to remind her to say excuse me, thank you, you’re welcome, etc. She thanks me for making her dinner and tells me how amazing it is (her words haha), how I am her pretty momma and she loves me so much, etc. She is a very affectionate girl and loves her family.

Kyler probably is one of the funniest people I know. She is constantly saying silly things and acting goofy and she knows she is funny. That does get her in some trouble sometimes 🙂 I think she gets talked to in school a bit for being too silly and not listening and I know she does at home.

She is quite the little momma. She really is Hudson and Lincoln’s 2nd mom. She is always looking out for them, helping them, disciplining them haha. She helps Chris and I out quite a bit. I have caught her dressing Hudson after bath, she puts his shoes on, encourages him with whatever he’s doing, gets him food, etc. Just this morning she hooked him up with a lollipop at 9:30am because he wanted one and we said no 🙂

It’s amazing how much she has learned in a year. I think VPK had a lot to do with that but it’s so fun watching her recognize words, sound them out and try and write them. Her handwriting has gotten a lot better and she is really loving school.  She likes to count to 100 and was schooling me on compound words the other day. Sometimes she says she wants to be a teacher when she grows up.

She does have her moments but they tend to be when she gets really tired. The sas is still in full force but that’s okay. She is definitely a strong willed, beats to her own drum, independent girl.

Her favorite things to do include watching movies and tv. She will probably watch paint dry if it’s on tv so we have to turn it off quite a bit. Now that she knows how to turn on the TV by talking to Alexa, it’s been fun 🙂 She loves Trolls and all Disney movies. She loves to play on her iPad and loves to color and make up pictures for us. When she isn’t doing that, she loves to play with her barbie and her American Girl dolls. She of course love to play with Hudson too.

She is a pretty good eater. She loved breakfast food and SWEETS. This girl hasn’t met a dessert or candy she hasn’t liked. It’s ridiculous and she is just like her dad. Her favorite meals are spaghetti, pierogies, and pizza. She is starting to get a little more adventurous with what she tries (for her). She loves her some flavored lemonade and did I mention anything sweet?

When it comes to her fashion she is a girly girl. She loves dresses, headbands, her new earrings, and loves when she gets new clothes. So funny.

We love you Kyler Nicole!

Lincoln: 16 & 17 Weeks

19 Feb

16 Weeks marks the week Lincoln started sleeping in his own crib. I also stopped feeding him in the middle of the night since he wouldn’t eat in the morning since he was still full. I think he is around 18 pounds but we will find out at the doctor this week.

Still one of the happiest babies I have ever been around

So smiley and so damn sweet ❤

Tomorrow he turns 17 weeks. He still isn’t rolling over but does like to play in his jumperoo.

Never trust your two year old when he tells you he is going to put the Vicks away…. he loves it in his hair.

We had yet another birthday celebration for Kyler with all of her friends.

The kids had a blast bowling!

Great group of ladies!

She is one lucky little girl!

Hud isn’t the biggest fan of his balance bike… he just needs more practice

Kyler really wanted to try riding with her training wheels off but she needs some more time. Hudson gave up and played with grass

This little guy lights up any room

Our Pats were in the Super Bowl and he was ready!

Gameday gear check!

I found my old glasses and Kyler thought it was funny that I used to wear them. Twins!

Patriots Family!

Fun Fact: For all three Jenkinson kids… the Patriots were in their first super bowls!

Cranked out 3 nights this week at work. Some of my favorite girls!

My Friday night looked like this and I was in heaven.

The weather today couldn’t have been more perfect. 80 degrees and not a cloud in the sky.

The pool was a bit cold for Hudson and I so we hung out in the hot tub

Hello blue eyes

We found a baby snake in the pool (gross) but the kids thought it was pretty cool

It was a long week and I am looking forward to working only 1 night this week!

 

Lincoln: 14 & 15 Weeks

12 Feb

So I am really behind on his 14 and 15 week posts.

He has slow down in how much he is eating which is okay I guess. It still stressed me out because he will go 5-6 hours in between feedings on occasion.

Those legs ❤

What a busy 2 weeks!

Lincoln’s first day of school (daycare)

First off, I went back to work. The first few days felt awkward but I am getting back into the swing of things. I work with some pretty awesome people!

Lincoln sent me flowers ❤ (well his awesome daddy did)

This crazy guy has some sweet dance moves

He must get it from Kyler

My sons Ammo, Hudson, Lincoln and Mr. Fen ❤

Hudson snuck in my bathroom while I was working and got into my face cream and make up… $$$ down the drain

Puppies at work. Look at her sweet face!

Kyler’s 5th birthday was on Thursday. I was able to make cupcake time at school and they let Hudson join in too.

More cupcakes that night!

Saturday morning we headed to Disney for a surprise breakfast with the princesses in Cinderella’s Castle

and more cupcakes

The breakfast was great and the kids loved it!!! We have never been in the castle before so it was pretty cool

After that, we went on a few rides and hit up the carousel with Lincoln

It was a cold and dreary day but the park was still packed

Today, we had a birthday party for Kyler at my parents. She had a mini petting zoo come by.

She loves goats right now

We had a pony, a mini horse, a sheep, a goat and a bunny

Kyler had a great day with her cousins. Her cousin Matt from New England is in town visiting which made it even more special.

My uncle from PA is also in town! Family affair!

Sunday night movie on the couch

Cousins!

Lincoln’s still partying

Love my boys ❤

Back to work tomorrow and ANOTHER birthday party next week for Kyler with all her friends. This girl is one special (spoiled) and loved little one!

Lincoln: Three Months / 13 Weeks

29 Jan

This past week, Lincoln turned 3 months / 13 weeks old. He is the happiest baby and smiles away. He is so sweet and I could just snuggle up with him all day long.He caught another cold so the poor guy has been super congested again. He isn’t sleeping through the night anymore but seems to wake up about once a night now. Once a night I can deal with. His eating habits are a little off right now. Sometimes he just won’t eat and will push it to 5 hours. Sometimes he prefers the bottle but this past week he would prefer to nurse which kind of sucks because I am back at work. Hopefully he will get over it soon and be okay with the bottle again… if not I may be searching for a new type of bottle! He will be 14 weeks tomorrow… time is flying by!

He is so peaceful ❤

Smiles for days

We visited our new friend Kate this week. She was 5 days old here 🙂

Lincoln and Kate ❤

Her first week of maternity leave and my last… too bad they didn’t overlap more!

Beautiful day so Lincoln and I went for a walk/jog

His face when he woke up from his nap haha

I think the pups are going to miss me too… although Princess Caya may not care…. head on pillow just like a person

We have kept up with the healthy eating and have found quite a few recipes we really like. Chris has already lost 11 pounds in 2 weeks and my old clothes are starting to fit again!

Bathtime for the boys

Getting our tummy time in

Don’t they look pretty? They tasted great too! BBQ Chicken Pizza Zucchini Boats

When Kyler was 3 we talked about getting her ears pierced when she turned 4. Well when she turned 4 she told me she wanted them when she was 5…. and now that her birthday is next week, it was time to get her ears pierced! She did AWESOME. She cried for a second but wasn’t too bad.

She picked out ladybugs of course!

Meanwhile, Hudson has been helping Chris build the new table.

We got some play time in this weekend with friends. These are some crazy kiddos!

Hudson and Lincoln ❤

Well, tomorrow I go back to work and have to leave this big guy at daycare. I have a lot of feelings about that and they aren’t the most positive but I know everything will be okay and he is in good hands… just got to rip the band aid off. You think this being my third maternity leave it would get easier but it doesn’t… in a way it’s much harder.
