Our beautiful Ky will be 6 months in 1 week! I cannot believe she is going to be 6 months old. Its going by so quickly! I find myself day dreaming about her 1st birthday and when she learns to crawl and then walk. She has now decided that she wants to sleep on her tummy, if we flip her over she just flips back over on her tummy and passes back out. No stopping her. She is a stubborn little girl sometimes. I am starting a memory box for her. So far I've got a handful of things for her to put in there. When I was younger I had one, we lived away from my family for awhile, and everytime I'd get a letter or a card, I would put it in my memory box. If I was feeling down, or just wanted something to do I would open up my memory box and go through it. I still have it. So I'm starting the same thing for Ky. So far I've got cards and letters and the roses she got for valentines day in there. I'm sure she will need more then one, but I'm excited about collecting these memories for her. I'm starting to get ready for 6 month pictures! woohoo im so excited. Ive bought a few bows and outfits for them. I've also decided that I'll be making a book every 6 months for the first few years of her life and then one book per year after. (shutterfly.com) I take so many pictures, and if Ky is going to be our only child I want our home filled with pictures of Kyleigh. She is being SO good this past week, she has been in an amazing mood and sleeping so well. We have been trying food lately. So far she likes the peas and green beans the most. I only try things every few days, because she has a sensitve stomach and i dont want to overload her with new things. I took a picture of her the other day, and I looked at it later and I couldnt believe what I was seeing, IS THAT MY BABY? she looked so much older then she did a few seconds ago. Shes getting SO tall. She fits in 9 month clothing, but is still in small diapers. She got a tiny little waiste. Lucky girl! I think she will be tall and lean like her fathers side of the family. My family is sort of short. I always knew she was going to be tall. Before I even got pregnant I knew that I would have tall children. My husband is a giant. I also always thought we would have boys! Kevins side of the family is mostly boys, my side is pretty much all girls. I always said when I was younger, that I would NOT have girls. My body would not make girls. WELL God had differently plans for me now didnt He? I wouldnt have her any other way. We were told when I was about 17.5 weeks pregnant that we were indeed having a boy. I even have a sonogram picture of what looks like a little boy part. We told family and friends WE ARE HAVING A BOY! Oh I was so excited, everyone else was too, but I knew that Kevins side of the family was secretly hoping for a girl ;) Kevin told me, I think its a girl, BOY did i rub that in his face. We went out and bought LOADS of boy things, boy clothing, boy socks, boy bedding, the works. Well, we had to go back to get another sonogram done because the baby 'boy' was measuring small, we went back, the lady asks me, are you SURE its a boy? I looked at her and said...um yes? thats what we were told...she looked at me and said, um I dont think its a boy. I went into freak out mode, my mind was going a million miles an hour, what we would have to take back, we would have to tell everyone it was a girl instead..A GIRL? WHAT? How can I raise a little girl? I can barely get along with my sister much less raise a little girl! The tech brought in another tech to take a look...YEP a girl..I started crying, Kevin started laughing, my head was spinning. I was scared. Bottom line, scared. As the day went on, the fear turned to peace when I realized this.." God will NEVER give you more then what you can handle" NEVER, I knew that whatever was thrown at me and Kevin, we could handle it. Now that I have my Ky, I am SO HAPPY I had a little girl. She is SO much fun, and shes funny, and silly and shes a girly girl who likes bows and dolls. Shes her daddys girl and her mommas world. Shes our everything. Now in the future if I have a boy I will be thrilled, but if I have another girl, Ill be just as thrilled if not more thrilled. Shes a blessing, shes ours, shes perfect. Everything Ive ever wanted. And I am so over the moon about her, and so is her daddy.
