Miss Kyler Nicole

Born January, 26, 2012

In honor for Kyler’s birthday, I went with a newborn picture of her. I took it myself πŸ™‚ She was such a beautiful and perfect baby and is a beautiful and perfect little 2 year old. These have been the quickest 2 years of my life but they have been the BEST! Wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world πŸ™‚ Love you, Bug!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

12 Jan

The weather this week in Florida has been all over the place. Hot, freezing, rainy, cool, sunny, cloudy.

Kyler was ready to go on the cold day. High was in the 4os!

She has been struggling with naps this week. If we doses off for a second before hitting the bed, you can basically kiss naptimeΒ goodbye. This means passing out in the car on the way home πŸ™‚

I hit up 4 Rivers this week (local BBQ place) and was pleased to see this sign at their Sweet Shop πŸ™‚

Coffee Oreo….. um YUM!!!!! It was AMAZING.

Grandma gave Kyler my locket necklace from when I was a baby. I got this when I was 1 for my baptism. I am going to put it away for safe keeping but will definitely let her wear it for nice occasions πŸ™‚

Kyler and Kenley are normally besties but they were fierce competitors on Saturday night. Colts vs Pats! Our Pats won which made The Jenkinsons happy. Ps…. trying to take pictures of 2 VERY active and crazy 2 year olds is basically impossible.

The family came to visit me at the Circus this past weekend. I had to work the morning show but it worked out because Kyler had a good time watching the show.

We stopped by our favorite breakfast place KeKe’s this morning. Kyler sat in a booster seat and waited patiently for her food. When did she get to be so big?

We enjoyed a beautiful 68 degree day at the park.

Pure Joy

Have a good week πŸ™‚

Just working at Daddy’s office

New Year’s Eve wasn’t very exciting for us. This was the excitement of my nights, poppin’ Sparkling Cider with my crew at work!

Delicious πŸ™‚

The Preggo is getting crazy!

My little fashionista πŸ™‚

We got A LOT done in the birthday party planning department this week. This photo inspired some of her cupcakes. I am getting them from Sweet by Good Golly Miss Holly.… best. cupcakes. ever.

Can’t wait to see how they turn out!

My UCF Knights won the 2014 Fiesta Bowl!!!!! I couldn’t be more proud πŸ™‚

They have come a long way since I went to school! Go Knights!

Sneak Peak of Kyler’s birthday party πŸ™‚

This little one visited me at work again. I could get used to that!

That’s my week. We are in full party planning mode! I am also starting to redirect my attention to Hudson’s room so I am excited to get into that over the next couple of months. This week I have my glucose test (yuck) but I am anxious to get back to the doctor and see how he’s growing. Last time I was measuring ahead by 2.5 weeks but I think I may be all caught up now. We will see! I will officially be in my 3rd trimester on Friday too. Less than 3 months to go! Ahhhh!!!

Hello 2014!

1 Jan

Happy New Year’s!!! I can’t believe 2013 has come and gone and we are already in 2014. I re-read what I wrote back in 2013 and laughed. I had 2 big things to accomplish and I can say that I really didn’t do that at all!

  • Working out: Β That went well in the Spring and Summer but then I got pregnant and that went out the window. I had big plans this time around to workout through my pregnancy and I just could not do it. I FEEL every ache and pain this time around and sometimes walking too much makes me unable to really move around for a day or 2. But with that said, my job keeps me fit. I walk anywhere from 3-10 miles a day so at least I have that!
  • Make more time for us: Well we sort of did that. We never did get a baby sitter (can’t seem to stomach paying over $100 just for dinner and a movie out of the house) but that doesn’t mean things didn’t change. I think Kyler being older helped A LOT. Looking back, when they are so little and need every waking second of your time, you can’t help but feel that is all your life is about. But now that Kyler is older and her own little person, we have really had more time to feel back to normal. Now adding a 2nd little kiddo to the mix should make things interesting but we are more than excited and ready for the change!

2013 was an interesting year for me. If I had to rate it, it wasn’t one of my best years. 2012 was a high for us; just getting settled into our new home & bringing Kyler in the world. 2013 definitely had its ups and downs. It has been so much fun watching Kyler grow so that has been the highlight. The hardest thing I have had to deal with is losing my brother Craig back in February. Here we are 10 months later and it is something I think about constantly. It’s been rough.

I am really looking forward to 2014. I am ready to meet our new son, Hudson, who is due April 4th. I am ready to see what work has to bring. I am ready to see where I can take this blog. I am ready for it all! Kyler will be turning 2 in a couple of weeks, I will be 28 in May (sigh) and Chris will be hitting his mid-30s at 35 in August. Where is the time going?!?!

Happy 2014!!!

Our Merry Christmas

30 Dec

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas this year!!! We had a good Christmas, however, we could have done without the stomach bug. Chris had it Christmas Eve and felt better by that night, Kyler became sick Christmas Eve night and was better by the morning, and I got it Christmas morning 😦 We all managed through it and still had a nice Christmas.

Christmas Eve night we baked cookies for Santa and watched the Grinch.

He ate them all!

Ready to go!

Someone’s excited!

Is this all for me???

Grandma, Poppa and Josh are here!

Opening her first gift.

Loves Mickey and Minnie

Girl loves her books!

Feeding her new baby

Enjoying her new chair and Leappad from Santa.

The aftermath.

Kyler got WAY too many presents but that’s okay πŸ™‚ She is allowed to be spoiled. I can’t quite seem to figure out what her favorites are yet. She keeps bouncing around. She does love her VTech Go Go Smart Wheels Train Set.Β 

Chris & I got a bunch of different goodies!!! Great Christmas indeed πŸ™‚

Again, we hope you had a very Merry Christmas and that you have a great new year!

Kyler had her winter clothes swim test on Monday and did GREAT! She is officially done with swim lessons!

This crazy girl woke up like this… must have been a wild night!

I worked the Avenged Sevenfold concert this week. It happens to be one of my favorite bands so I was a happy girl!

But I have to admit that it is pretty damn hard being away from this face ❀ It really makes working late not so much fun anymore.

So Kyler has been into the Little Mermaid and is starting to know all of the songs. She loves to sing a long so when I saw this “pretty” at Target (only $5… score!) I KNEW I had to buy it…. needless to say… she loves it!

Nothing like getting your hair done!

We celebrated Kenley Dee’s 2nd birthday on Saturday!!! The girls have been besties since the beginning. Happy Birthday Kenley!

We made Halloween Cookies with Kyler tonight.

For one, she kept trying to eat the cookie dough….which I know most people do (gross) but it had raw egg in it so I was freaking out just a bit πŸ™‚

At first, she opted to eat the cookie rather than decorate it.

Then she got in on the action!

Kyler’s BEAUTIFUL Halloween Cookies!

I spent the weekend hanging out with my little family and I couldn’t be any happier. Here is to another long weekend and hopefully (fingers crossed) some cooler weather!!!!!!

6 Oct

My mom watches Kyler 2 days a week and Kyler loves going over to Grandma and Poppa’s. Sometimes my mom takes Kyler out shopping…. one spoiled but trendy little girl!

She came home from school with this cute little hairdo πŸ™‚

Goofy girl!

We have one week left of swimming lessons. Kyler has the clothes test this week! She will get put into the pool fully clothed and have to make her way to the ledge. Daddy and Kyler practiced swimming this week, she is doing so well!

I had a long night of work on Saturday night. We had a HBO Live Boxing Event in the building. Pretty cool event!

Today we went to the toy store (found a $25 gift card, score!) and out to lunch. Poor thing couldn’t even make it home.

After our nap (yeah… I napped too), we headed to our weekly trip to Publix. Kyler helped put things on the belt.

Tonight, I made a little Polish feast complete with my Grandma’s Fried Cabbage and Noodles πŸ™‚ She used to make her own dumplings that were amazing but I didn’t really have time for that πŸ™‚ Egg noodles work pretty well!

Finished product! Nothing really healthy here.

We topped off our night with a family movie night. I have been waiting for the Little Mermaid to come out of the vault and it finally has! It is my favorite Disney movie and Kyler was really into it too!

I am still exhausted every night so I pretty much hit the bed early. Work is really picking up and our pre-season starts this week! Pray for me! Β Have a great week!!
