time for a check up....

Today Kendall is 9 weeks old and she had her 2 month check up. She weighs 13lbs and 5oz and is 24 inches long. For her height she is in the 96th percentile and for her weight she is in the 95th percentile. So she is a proportionately big baby. In the words of my doctor, haha! She looks good and is very healthy. This baby is so sweet I can't say it enough. She loves her big sister, whenever Jordan comes around she squeals with delight and kicks her little legs like crazy. Jordan gives her pretty rough kisses but Kendall smiles after each one. I'm always saying ok that's enough but Jordan says no mom she's ok. And then I look at Kendall and she has the biggest smile on her face. It makes me one happy mama. Kendall finally loves her crib, she wouldn't sleep in it forever, she would sleep in a chair. So last week it took a really long day to get her to like her crib but now she loves it. She likes her binky sometimes, which helps. I like that it will calm her down especially after getting her shots today. :( She loves her blankets, her big sister, her play time, the car, her baths, other kids, she loves being cuddled and her dad and I of course. :)  But I will say she is a mommy's girl. Which I'll admit I kind of like. She does not like to be overstimulated, bright lights before bedtime and pooping. Sometimes she has a rough time doing that, but it's getting way better now that she is getting older. We love you baby K.
Jordan is growing so big too. This month is her half birthday, she is 3 1/2 years old. This girl is hilarious. Since Kendall has arrived she has had a few more tantrums which is strange for me because she never acted that way with me. But it's understandable, her world has changed drastically. Luckily she is great with her little sister, she loves her so much. And she is a big help for me with a lot of things. I wish I knew Jordan's stats because she is so tall. I know she is taller than 43" and I can't guess her weight but I can hardly carry her anymore. I don't have to of course, it's just if we are playing around I can't do it. Ha! Her shoe size is a 12 and she is in a 5 for pants and a 5 for her shirts sometimes 6 depending on the store (in little girls). Crazy! Her hair is still so curly and getting longer. To see the length I have to straighten it. It's so pretty. I love my two beautiful girls, I am so blessed!

I completely forgot to take a pic of just Kendall with her dress on. She was able to wear my blessing dress, so that was exciting.

We had Hawaiian haystacks thanks to my mom and dad. ;) One of my faves.

Jordan received a new toy from Grandma Seiuli, she loves playing with it all the time.

We blessed Kendall on Sunday, August 5, 2012. It was a very sweet blessing given by her daddy. Thanks to our family members who were able to make it. We were so thrilled to have all of you. We love you baby Kendall and are so blessed to have you a part of our family. You have the sweetest disposition ever and you love listening and talking to all of us.
