5 months

Kinley turned 5 months on Sunday and I just can't believe it! Time is flying by. I have started a new thing where I print out a pic of her each month for her first year for the baby book. The 5 months ones are coming from Aubrey's party. There was an amazing photographer there named Arlene Cloud and she took these pics of Kinley. Happy 5-Month Birthday baby!

Bye, Bye Bart & Olivia

Today was Bart & Olivia's last day in Dallas. We went to help them move out of their apartment and into a Uhaul that they are driving to Boston. We are so excited for them and for all the adventures ahead of them in Boston and at Harvard. Kinley had a great time rolling around on the floor of the rooms we were emptying out. We love you guys so much and can't wait to come visit you!
Taylor brought over her dog Nelly and Kinley LOVED it!
In case you were not informed, moving day attire is a white v-neck tee and nike shorts....actuall a coincidence for Emily, Taylor and I but, definitely the perfect fit for matching Monday.
We are all exhausted after moving all day!

Bart is taking a little Texas with him with the deer head and a cowboy hat. I know Olivia is as thrilled as I am to have a deer head on the wall.
Bye guys! Drive Safe and we will see you soon!

Happy Birthday Aubrey!

Kinley's sweet cousin Aubrey Grace turned 1 year old this week and today was her party. There were so many fun friends and family there to celebrate. She is beautiful and sweet and put on a great show! The theme for the party was pink princess and everyone at the party wore pink. Well, Kinley and I kind of LOVE a theme and went all out to match from T's to toes. Thanks Aubrey for such a fun day! We love you and have been so thrilled to watch you grow this year.

Pops & Gram's House

Thanks Pops & Gram for letting us come over last night! It was Kinley's first time to take a bath over there and she went to sleep so well! She also LOVES her chair over there. It is her favorite one to sit in. She kept getting so distracted while eating her cereal because she kept hitting those toys over and over. Hilarious!

Bitter Beer Face

Kinley's latest trick is what we like to call the 'bitter beer face.' It is hilarious. I remember my sweet friend Allison's little girl Ella had a bitter beer face too and it was so cute! I will try to get her to send an old pic also for hilarious! Enjoy.
As is Ella's bitter beer face for comparison...haha!!

The Ranch

This weekend was Kinley's first trip to East Texas. Mom, Dad, Ben, me, Kinley and Matt went to visit Inie & Bull. It was a wonderful weekend to spend time with them and to visit the Ranch. We had good food, good conversation, a few games of 42 and a trip to the ranch. Here are a few pics of our weekend. I am trying to upload the video that is super cute too! Check back later! We love you Inie and Bull!

Inie put her baby doll's hat on Kinley.
Matt got to brand a piece of wood with Bull's Flying H Brand...I know that has to hurt the cows!

Cousin Jeremy made this Flying H piece of wood for Bull's shop

This is the train car that those crazy boys sometimes bunk in when they come hunt the way would I be in there!
