3 Months

Today Kinzlie is 14 weeks! She is getting so big and growing so much. We have an appointment next week to see how much she has grown. Last time we weighed her she was 9 lbs and 13 oz so we'll see how much she has gained since then.
A few days ago we decided to take her to get her ears pierced. So, we gave her some tylenol, got her all dressed up, and headed to the mall. But, on the way there I changed my mind because I didn't want to make her cry and I just started feeling really bad so we decided to wait until she's a little bit older. We might even ask our pediatrian if he can do it.
A few fun facts about Kinzlie at 3 Month:
-She has outgrown all of her newborn onesies but can still wear her newborn pants
-She is getting more used to tummy time, but would rather be on her back so she can see what's going on around her
-She is starting to "talk" a lot, mostly to daddy though
-Her neck is getting a lot stonger now
-She can sit up assisted but after a while she slumps over or slides down
-She is a very happy baby for the most part
-She can also sleep for about 7 hours every night (which makes mama very happy :)

Pinterest Projects

Lately I've been obssesed with the website pinterest.com which is basically a virtual cork board where you can pin different projects, recipes, and ideas to your own 'boards'. I have pinned so many things but I feel like I'm just pinning and never really get around to doing the projects. So, my new goal is to make one new recipe and one new craft project each week and post them here and on my facebook page.
This past week I've done 4 different projects (2 recipes and 2 projects). They were 1. Hair bows for Kinzlie 2. Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta 3. Kahlua cake 4. Blinged out Phone Case

2 Months

Well as of today Kinzlie is 10 weeks old! She is growing so fast I can hardly keep up :) We had her 2 month well baby check up today and she is 9 lbs 12 oz (in the 15th percentile) and 22.5 inches long (in the 50th percentile). She also had to get her shots today which was not very fun.
Here are some fun facts about Kinzlie at 2 months:
-She is starting to coo at us and tell us stories whenever she can.
-She is holding her head up by her self now, but sometimes it gets a little too heavy for her
-I have had to put away most of her newborn clothes because she has grown out of them, she is now wearing mostly 0-3 month clothes
-She is staring to grab onto things (like our fingers)
-She is pretty much done with the paci, she will take it sometimes but not very often
-She loves to smile and even laughs sometimes :)
We love her more and more each day and love watching her learn, grow and develope.

Christmas Break

Over Christmas Break we headed down to St. George to spend Christmas with my family. We left Logan the morning of the 24th and got to St. George that afternoon. Kinzlie was so good on the drive down and only woke up once in Nephi for a diaper change and feeding which made the trip great for Jordan and I :)
While we were in St. George we had some yummy family dinners, played games(mostly Rook), did some shopping, rode horses, and did some visiting with family and friends. Overall we had a wonderful first Christmas as a little Allen family :)
Also, while we were in St. George we were able to go to the temple for the first time and be sealed together as a family for time and all eternity. It was such a special experience that we were able to share with some of our closest friends and family.
