So its been a while since I have posted any pictures so I will try to catch up.
Here are some very overdue pictures from our Halloween Party at church.

Kylee and her peeps

Here is Kylee at her preschool program. She was a puppy.

Here is Bryan's pig, Becca.

I had a weird urge tonight to actually clean out the fridge. Kylee was my helper. Her favorite were the carrots. I have taught her well.

This was from the other day. She has a fascination with crawling under the table. She was draped inside of a chair, but she got out before I could get the shot.

This was a day when Mommy and Kylee both wore their overalls :)

I'm sorry I haven't posted in so long. We have already had a very busy November. The first weekend we went over to Stephenville to see Bryan. They had a toy run sponsored by the area bikers. It was really fun to see all of them drive in on their motorcycles. We got to see Bryan's pig who he endearingly named Becca. All of the kids were very excited to show us their animals. It is a great program for the boys to learn how to be responsible for something else besides themselves.

Last weekend we had two of our nieces up from Austin. Marj and Kim are 12 and 14 and I had a lot of fun with them. They entertained Kylee and I got to help Jonathan organize the garage a little. He did most of the work and I just hung out with the girls most of the time. The garage is very close to housing an actual car and just in time since there has been ice on my car recently. Thanks to Jonathan who worked so hard.

Kylee turned 10 months on the 12th. I was happy, but sad. My baby is one month closer to a year. I can't believe she is so big. So I decided to list 10 things that she loves to do:

1. Play by herself until Mommy is busy washing dishes and cannot hold her.
2. Close herself in the laundry room.
3. Pull everything off of the coffee table and then crawl away.
4. Kick her legs when Daddy gets home. If he doesn't hold her right away, she cries.
5. Nurse while standing up!
6. Pull the curtain back and look out the front window.
7. Go outside for any reason.
8. Try to pull Mommy's beauty marks off of her :)
9. Carry two stuffed animals around while she does everything: crawl, cruise, and climb.
10. Eat big girl food.

Yesterday Kylee choked on something that she found in the toy box at preschool. I had gone to run some errands when it happened, but this is how I was told it happened.Her teacher turned around and saw Kylee standing by the toy box and it looked like she was yawning. She realized that she wasn't breathing and did the sweep in her mouth. She felt something hard at the back of her throat, but was unable to get it out. It went down further, but Kylee started breathing again.

A few minutes later Kylee stopped breathing and her teacher ran her down to the directors office. The director hit her on the back and a tiny little piece of plastic wrapping came out. She started breathing again and was back to her old self. When I picked her up I took her over to the doctor to make sure everything was okay. He said she was breathing well and seemed okay, but wanted to take an x-ray to be sure (we weren't sure if that tiny little piece of plastic was it since it had felt hard). The x-ray showed that there was nothing in there and she is doing well.

But while we were there he checked on her ear infection and said that she probably needed another antibiotic. He gave her a z-pack which she will start tomorrow. Poor baby. She seems to be feeling alright, but we are going to keep her home tonight so she can get a good night's sleep. We were supposed to go down to the homecoming game of my high school with some old friends. But I think it would do her some good to stay here.

Sorry no pictures this time, I will post some later
