Singin and Bouncin'

Been trying to post these all week, These are some fav videos of Kira Kira. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do. She loves to do the "Indian" and thinks it's even more fun when she gets to do it to Mommy or Daddy. She is starting to roll over a lot now and she mysteriously moves from one place to another but never seems to crawl.... We love having her as part of our family, even though she doesn't like to sleep. I think one of my favorite things about Kira, (there are a lot, but one of the top) is that she does everything with her whole being. She laughs and smiles with her whole body, she sings and plays with her whole body... and sometimes it's bad because it also means she gets mad and angry with her whole body too but the good seems to outweigh the bad. We love her so much and I sometimes wonder how we could have been so blessed as to have been given her. It is an awesome responsibility to be given, to raise a child of God and everyday I pray that I can do a good job because that's what Kira deserves.

Hope you enjoy her as much as we do.....

Kira Kira

Hi Everyone, It's been a little while since the last post. Kira is getting so big! She is still a little chatterbox and likes to talk to us for most of the day. She is still a really happy baby and growing up so fast! She won't eat if there is something better to do and will refuse to sleep if there is something more fun to do, which is most of the time, which means by 9:00pm she is pretty tuckered out! So she sleeps through the night, which is nice! She rolls over, but ONLY when Jacob and I are not looking, she likes to get up on all fours and rock back and forth. We put the bouncer together and she loves it.
