Lincoln: Five Months

26 Mar

My sweet little dude. He will be half a year old next month. How????

This past month (this last week actually) he tried oatmeal for the first time and loved it! The Jenkinson kids have always grown fast and we end up feeding solids before the 6 month mark.

He is going through a pretty hard core sleep regression right now and we are EXHAUSTED. It’s pretty much every hour, or sometimes half hour. I know it will past but it needs to pass quickly. The days are becoming a struggle to stay awake.

He still hasn’t rolled over official, however, he rolls to his side all of the time and now is spinning in circles. Pretty sure when he learns to roll over, he will quickly get up on all fours. I can’t even think of having 3 mobile kids soon.

I saw this every single month but he is seriously the sweetest thing. I think because he is my last I am also obsessed with these baby months even more but I can’t get enough of him. He is so squishy, smiley and giggly I can’t take it! Never change baby boy.

Lincoln: 18, 19 & 20 Weeks

Love this big guy!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

12 Mar

The last couple of weeks have been a blur. I’ve had so many events that Chris has been on kid duty alone more than he should have too. Kids don’t seem to mind though 🙂

Kyler loves to write me notes… she gave me this before I left for work ❤

Last weekend we went to Epcot for a few hours. It was packed but we had fun!

Having fun just strolling around

The Flower and Garden Festival is going on right now and that is always a fun time to go.

Sweet Lincoln!

He looks so much like Hudson did at that age!

Speaking of Hud… never know how you will find him in bed… decided to take of his pjs (and undies) and put some shorts on

The weather in March here is pretty much perfect. Great day to stroll around the park with good friends

I was surprised to see the new Jimmy Fallon ride open for testing. We got in and it was awesome!

My good friend got married this past week and it was a blast! Poor Chris didn’t feel well but he was a trooper and made it through half the night.

Beautiful day for a wedding!

My work brothers and I back together!

I have been blessed to work with some pretty amazing interns since I have been at the Magic. So great to hang out with most of them at the same time.

So much fun! Huge congrats to Dan and Leah!

After going to bed around 1 am, 5:30am came quickly. Heading to work while the sun is going up is never fun.

Since Chris was still under the weather, bringing the kids up to see me gave him a little break. Plus it was awesome to spend some time with my babes since I have been working so much.

After a 15+ hour work day on 4 hours of sleep…. we survived!

After sleeping in, the rest of the day was spent on the couch hanging with the kids… and this princess.

Should I have cleaned up the house? Sure but relaxing sounded better 🙂

10 minutes later….

The little guy was feeling so hot today but hoping its teething and not a cold coming on.

Looking forward to a slower week this week!

 

 

Lincoln: Four Months

26 Feb

This kid. He has stolen my heart.

Lincoln is 4 months old already. He is still as sweet as can be. Since 3 months, he has started sleeping in his own crib and I think he is liking it. The last week he has been waking up more so I am sure we are headed into the dreaded 4 month sleep regression. Grrrrr. I have tried to stop feeding him in the night unless he really is stirring.

He went to the doctor and weighed 17 pounds and 14 ounces. Same exact Hud weighed at 4 months. He is still an inch shorter than Hud was at 4 months so it’s pretty funny they are growing at the same rate. His shots bothered him and he wasn’t my happy little dude that night. Other than that, his appointment went great. His hernia went away too which is kinda funny. I don’t think we were expecting it to go away for a while and he really only had it for about a month.

He is starting to play more with his toys more and more as well. He started playing in his jumperoo and grabs at the things on his mat. I think he is close to rolling over and have caught him hanging out on his side lately.

Lincoln, you are the sweetest and happiest little guys and we love you xooxox

26 Feb

Mom of the year spilled coffee all over Kyler’s homework…. still turned it in and got a check mark though!

Zucchini Pizza Boats… still on the healthy kick!

Chris bought Kyler pink heart earings and a rose for Valentine’s Day. So sweet ❤

Story time!

My littlest valentine and he has stolen my heart ❤

My sweet boys

We celebrated Kyler’s friends birthday! Cutest Minnie Mouse ever.

So focused!!

The birthday girl Claire!

After the party, Chris and I celebrated a late Valentine’s Day/date night. He surprised me with a couples spa retreat at the Ritz. My favorite!!!

It has been almost 7 years ago since we said I do at this very spot. Love this man more and more every day ❤

After the spa, we headed to Disney Springs for some drinks and dinner

We finally got to check out the Boathouse. Yummy!

Practicing on his balance bike. We have been bad and should have been practicing with them more but we are committed now!

Saturday at work meant Chris was solo for a full day with the kiddos. He never sends me photos but sent me this one and it is absolutely perfect.

Some of the awesome ladies I work with!

We had big plans to clean today but Sunday laziness was so much better.

Lincoln’s new trick is pulling his shirt up

Same expression haha… Lincoln pretty much has Hudson’s build and they are the same from the nose down. Lincoln has Kyler’s eyes and smile. Half and half!

Love them!!!!!

Here’s to another busy and crazy week… summer will be here before I know it right?

 

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.
