Fun update on Kinzi so I am at least writing this stuff down somewhere...
She is now 15 months old and quite the fireball.  I know this to be true because people in my ward have started to notice too.  She has become pretty independent and learned how to let out a big yell or throw herself on the ground when she doesn't get what she wants. She has learned concrete is not very fun to throw a fit on.
But even though she can be crazy at times she is still very sensitive and sweet. 
She loves to cuddle and will randomly walk up to a person or anything (a wall, couch, table) and lay her head down and cuddle. I love that about her.
She loves to go to sleep. No joke. If she is acting tired I ask her if she wants to go nigh night and she repeats it back to me and walks me to her room so she can take a nap.
She is very attached to her blankie. I might love it. 
She still sucks her fingers when she goes to sleep.
She loves anyone to read her a book. She will walk it up to you. Hand it to you, then reach for you to pick her up. If you ignore her, she will throw a fit. Beware.
She dances so cute.  Sometimes she will go in circles on the floor and sometimes she shakes her arms back and forth.
She can do the whole patty cake song with actions. She also does the popcorn song. In fact she ran into the primary room on Sunday when she heard them singing it and started doing the actions with them. She also just started singing "E-I-E-I-O" when we sing old McDonald to her. I laugh every time.
I counted all the words she could say and she is up to 10 woo hoo! Mama, Dada, Nana, Nigh Night, Yeah, Dog, Jesus (work in progress), Love you, no no, Uh Oh. Some don't actually sound like the real word but I know she thinks she is saying them and she tries so I am giving her the credit.
She LOVES bananas. She wants one everyday.  She calls any food or drink nana.
She also loves dogs.  And calls any animal she sees a dog. Pretty funny when a cat comes on TV and she yells DOG really loud.
She has 9 teeth! 4 on top, 2 molars in back, and 3 on bottom. Yes only 3. And there is no sign of the 4th coming in to even it out, hilarious!
She loves to watch cartoons. And I am A OK with it.  In fact I can clip her nails, paint her nails, and do her hair while she watches them because she doesn't move at all. Works out great. Her favorite show is Yo Gabba Gabba. Pretty Annoying but she loves it.  I just introduced Veggie Tales to her and she likes it a lot too. Plus I think its possibly the cutest show ever.
She loves to be outside and thankfully its cooling off so I will actually take her out of the house now.
She knows where her eyes, nose, ears, and tongue are. 
Also if you ask her where Baiden is or her Brother, she points to her belly :) But will kiss mine if I ask her to give him a kiss. She is going to be a great sissy.
When dad is home she wants his undivided attention and follows him everywhere.
She loves people and waves to anyone. Even if they don't look at her she still waves.
She really really loves her grandma's. Go figure eh?
She is above the 5th percentile for weight! That hasn't happened for a while ha ha. She is 19 pounds and 9 ounces and 29 inches long. I love having a little (but still chunky) girl.

When people hear I am a stay at home mom they sometimes ask, "What do you do all day?" Well I play and play and play. Yes sometimes I get bored but I love what I get to do. Plus I'm sure come January I'm not going to have as much free time as now anyways.
Phil and I are always talking about how fun Kinzi is. We love being able to do more things with her now and see how fun her personality is.  She makes us laugh everyday.  Sometimes at night after she has been to sleep a while we go get her out of bed and just snuggle her and sometimes play with her. Yeah, we are really good parents. We can't help it. She is so fun! She goes right back to sleep after so its all good.

We took her to the D Backs game and every time the crowd clapped she did with so much excitement too!

Great bedhead right?

She does this all the time.  Just lays in the middle of the floor wherever she is. Goof.
Loves her Dad.

We are all getting excited around here for a new baby.  Sometimes I wonder how I am going to handle a 19 month old and newborn but I am just so excited to have a new baby to cuddle whenever I want.
Back before I was pregnant Phil and I were talking about boy names we liked. He came up with all these great ones.  Our favorite was Baiden and it has stuck ever since.  I'm pretty sure that's the name we are going with and I love it.  He is moving around all the time. And doc says that the baby and I are both healthy and doing great.  This is a pic from last week. My goal is to take them every week. Lets hope I stick to it.

So not fair. With that shirt on you almost don't even look pregnant! Kinzi is so cute and I really wish she and Katy could play together! (Well, they might just yell at each other, but it would be funny...)

YOu are one tiny pregnant girl!

My girls are 19 months apart. It's a little getting used to, but now two years later I don't know what it'd be like if they weren't so close in age.

if kinzi likes e-i-e-i-o, youtube the lawerence welk show's version of it. my 3 year old LOVED it at 16months. It's kinda corny, we got a kick out of it. :)

Good luck with your pregnancy and that name is adorable.

I can't get enough of Kinzi. She is hilarious! I can't wait to see what Baiden will be like. And I like your goal of taking a picture every week. I would too if I looked like you!

SOPHIE!!! ok i AM DYING. For many reasons. I love love love kinzi, but even more I just looked at your blog for the first time in a while and I SWEAR I DIDNT COMPY YOU! haha Im sure you dont care, but I titled my blog "Livin" then I looked at hours and I thought, she totally copied me! and I laughed but then I looked at the date and was like, No I copied her! We have similar brians. So now both our blogs are matching. awesome.

Ya I will try and keep it updated, but I was bad with one, so Im sure Ill be worse with 2. But ya my aunt is Cherilyn Halls! Whats even weirder is that my parents live directly behind your sister Summer. We are living with my mom right now cause we are looking for a house, so Im in your sisters ward. But my kids are about 20 months apart!! how far apart will your kids be? and I really like the name you have picked out!:)
