one of the things I'll miss about living in Burbank
is living near the airport
{what? why?}

whenever we played in the back yard {or anywhere really} every so often a plane would fly right overhead and Clover would look around for it

one day she started saying "ping! ping!" and we could not figure out what she was referring to
{to me it sounded like an asian last name}
but soon we realized it was when she was looking for a plane
so now we call them ping's too

before we moved Brian took Clover down to the Burbank airport and parked on top of the parking structure to watch these pings one last time

{of course Muno + Broby had to go too}
{judging by the redness in her face, it was one of those hot days we had this summer}
{Clo saying "wooow"}

Only in the South

my new series of my findings in the south that are just plain ...
... well ... unexplainable ...

Only in the South
do you find a 40 year old woman wearing toe socks with open toed shoes

Crimson: 2 Months & counting

. 11lb 6oz . 23 in .
{to compare with Clover, check out Clover's 2 Months & counting}

. milestones .

smiles A LOT
still cries A LOT {but not as much}
sleeps about 6 hours straight {praying for more, please Lord}
still eating great

month 2 has been full full full
first I'll tell you a little about my crim de la crim {yes, she has more nicknames then anyone could care for}

she is still a crier but it is SO much better, I've even been able to eat some dairy, in moderate proportions
she mostly cries just because she doesn't want to be alone, so it's nice that I don't always have to hold her, just be near her enough that she see's and/or hears me
she LOVES clover and clover loves her {blessing!}
clover likes to go up to her right in her face and say "hi, baby" and then give her lots of kisses
today when clover went and sat next to her, crimson looked at her and started beaming
when she cries clover will look concerned and say "uh oh"
{clover especially loves to poke her eyes and say "eye", yes clover that is an eye, but don't poke your sister. oh and go put some clothes on!}
{but even through the poking, they still love each other}
.....cue in the music from White Christmas, sisters, sisters.....

she had her first play date with her good friend Evy Rodriguez
{the first time didn't go over too well, I think Evy was too cool for her being 6 weeks older}
{but then they warmed up to each other}
{and then they started a cool girl posse, look at those sassy girls}

God bless us, everyone :)

Crimson: 1 Month & counting

Taryn Crimson Snow Irby
. 9 lb . 5 oz . 22 in .
first outing was church at 1 week old
first baby shower, for my sister
first pacifier, I think I gave it to her the 2nd day she born. I just couldn't wait for the crying to stop!
great eater
hates when I eat dairy
at 2 weeks old was able to move her head side to side while on her tummy

all I can say about my little tare bear is that she likes to cry .... and cry ..... and if there's time cry some more
if she's not sleeping, she's crying and if she's not crying, she's sleeping
Brian had to move to Georgia to start work 2 weeks after she was born so while I had help during the day time, I was left quite alone in the night
I joined in on the crying a few times

dairy was part of the culprit
but the rest was just her little personality
fortunately for me as the weeks go on she has gotten better, don't get me wrong she is still a fussy baby but the Lord is good and when I would get to my breaking point, He was kind and gracious enough to give me a day off. And then back to crying!
I'm just learning to love my children according to their different personalities

we had some fun visitors
{surprise visit from the Irby's}
{great grandma Cogswell}
as for me, C-section recovery is so much harder!
I was walking around like an old lady for a couple weeks
missing coffee and ice cream :(
when I first stopped dairy I thought "big deal, I don't really eat dairy" ... then I started realizing what all I ate that dairy is in! MY coffee, ice cream, whipped cream, any meals with cheese in it like mexican food :( sad kenzie

{i wish they all could be california giiiiiiirls}
{tummy time is more fun for Clover I think}{baby feet!!!!!}
so Im playing catch up now that I have my computer back ... so look for the next posts coming soon:
move to Georgia
2 months & counting
another phone picture post

& my new favorite post theme:
only in Georgia

{by the way look how skinny my dad is!}
