15 months

It is so hard to believe that Kysen is 15 1/2 months old. Here are some stats since we haven't done any in a really long time. Weight- 22 pounds 13 ounces (15th%) Height-33 1/2 inches (98th%) Some things haven't changed, we have a very tall, very skinny boy on our hands. Vocabulary- mommy, daddy, hi, bye, ball, dog, sit, no, yes, yeah, nana, pops, ace(my sister), night night, puffs, milk, more, truck, football, baseball, basketball, big ball, book, poo poo, hot dog, and the list goes on! He loves playing with balls and trucks. Whenever he sees either one he has to have it or it is a full blown tantrum. Needless to say our house has been taken over by all kinds of balls. Speaking of tantrums, Kysen has full blown tantrums. He is very stubborn and very independent. He gets frustrated that he still can't communicate everything he wants with you, and after a long game of charades, Kysen talk, etc we can usually get it figured out. I am worried for the terrible twos, this has already been terrible. He is learning and exploring so much. He can identify blue, red, and pink correctly, and can say the colors. He can count to 3 and also count objects to 3.he can sort with some help by colors and animals. He is still a mommy's boy. Everyone says they go through phases, but for the past 15 1/2 months he is still a mommy's boy. He is still pretty shy when he first goes somewhere or sees someone, but is warming up faster to people. He loves to give hugs and kisses and it just melts my heart. We have been working with saying I love you and making an l with our fingers and shaking it when we say it. Tonight when Shaylor left for work tonight, Kysen shook his little hand after giving him a hug and kiss. It truly is amazing how much a child learns. I think about last summer, he was just a little baby that depended on us for everything and now, he only needs us for very few things. We love you Kysen! You are an amazing little boy, and I can't wait to continue to watch you grow and develop. You amaze us every day with the different things you do.

The rest of the trip...

Was not as exciting. Kysen got super clingy and whiny, then bam here came the fever. We stayed at the condo and just relaxed which was a totally different scene for us, but very refreshing. We ended up coming home on Friday instead of going to El Paso,shorter drive and needed to see doctor. We took Kysen to the doctor on Saturday and everything came back clear. Foundout there is something going around that all that is wrong is a high fever, it's crazy. So after 7 days of a fever, it finally broke and our happy little boy is back. Next post: summer time and 15 month check up.

Ruidoso Trip Days 1&2

Every year we meet my parents in Ruidoso at their time share. It is always so nice and relaxing. We drove in on Sundaynto a horrible fire that has consumed 36,000 acres of God's beautiful forest. During the day we can just see the smoke, but by night time you can see the actual fire burning. It is a sight to see that's for sure. We took it pretty easy once we got in. Yesterday we headed to the horse races and had a blast. Kysen loves all kinds of animals and trucks, so it was a perfect place for him. Whenever he would see the horses he would neigh at them and then as they were running he would yell go go go, over and over. I think he learned that from me yelling at I'll Have Another to step it up both races. You would never know that my poor child is teething, has a horrible diaper rash that even antibiotic rash cream is not taking care, and his poor little eyes won't stop watering from allergies. He is such a trooper and having a fabulous time with Nana and Pops. Please continue to pray for these wild fires, it is devastating at what all has been lost and damaged. My heart goes out to all the people who have lost everything!

Horrible Blogger

I am the worst blogger ever! I always say I am going to blog more and somehow times gets away from me. I am hoping with it being summertime I can find more time to do it. My child is extremely active so when he is awake we are going 90 mph. Here is a little update on my boy: He is a true all boy. He loves to climb, throw, build, stack, and he has no fear, which leaves me to be on constant alert. He has great vocabulary. He can say about 30 words that I can actually understand, but talk sin full sentences and I just act like I know what he is saying. We go to the doctor in about a week and a half for his 15 month check up so I can give you an update on weight, height, etc then. When he gets on mommy and daddy's scale he is about 23/24 pounds. I am truly amazed at how much he has grown and how much things have changed in just a short year. I can't believe that last fear at the time I had a totally dependent child, Nowd I have a totally independent child who does not want any help at all. It is fascinating to see the world in his eyes, and it has opened my eyes to the world again. Just a little update for y'all. Hopefully I can get his first birthday pictures uploaded soon so y'all can see the fun festivities. I promise I will try to do better at what is going on in our life!

5 months really????

I know, I know, I have been a horrible blogger the last 5 months. I think about it at times I don't have time to sit down and type. Here are things that are going on with Kysen:
*A walker- He walks everywhere!!!! He took his first steps right before he was 9 months, and I was home to see them. It was wonderful. Ever since then he takes more and more, and within the last few weeks, he would rather walk than crawl.
*5 teeth- He is an AWESOME teether. One of his teeth we had no idea that it was even going to come out. He went to bed and the next morning he had a tooth.
*Talking- here are just a few words that you can say, Mama, Dada, Ball, Dog, Hi, Bye, No, OK, yeah, and you are trying your name, sometimes we get Sen out of you and other times we get Ky Ky. He repeats ever word that I say, or at least make a noise with the same tone that I use.
*Clapping is still one thing he always does. Now, he will play patty cake by himself.
*If he is crying, all I have to do is give him a book or show him a picture of a baby and he stops.
*He waves bye with both hands, and waves hi with one hand.
*He loves to give people high five, and we are working on bones(knuckles). He doesn't quit get to make a fist.
*He had RSV in January and that was an awful experience. He had a fever for a week. It got really high one night and had to take him to the ER. After 2 weeks, he finally started acting like himself.
*We are working on the word gentle when petting dogs or when we are around babies.
*He will just walk over to me and give me a hug and a kiss, he already knows how to melt a woman's heart.
*Some of his favorite toys are trucks he can push around, anything that will open and close, riding in his many cars that he has, and he still loves balls. He always has at least one in his hand no matter what he is doing.
*At his 9 month check up he weighed 20 pounds(30th percentile) and was 30 inches long (95th percentile).
*He is going to be a big cousin in August!

This is just a little bit of what Kysen can do! I can't believe he is a month away from being one. Time is flying. I love him more than I ever thought I could love anything.
