Aunt Anne and Uncle Patrick Visit

What a gorgeous day we had today. After a taste of Spring a few weeks ago - it looks like Spring is here for good.

Anne and Patrick came for an afternoon visit. We were able to enjoy the covered patio and have the twins play with their new books/stickers that Aunt Anne brought with her.

Kylie was in her normal great mood - smiling for all of us to see her precious little personality. Kate and Connor ran around playing with books and sticks and chalk.

Hugh got home from his tennis practice and joined us on the patio. The kids just loved jumping in his lap and being tickled and loved on.

All in all - a terrific day at the O'Farrell home!

Kylie's First Tooth

Today, Kylie's first tooth broke through this morning. It's on the bottom right and you can barely see it. No wonder she has been drooling so much recently. She's just like big brother Connor and his drooling when he was teething.

How about....?

At breakfast, Tracy asked the kids "How about... some oatmeal?". Kate in her perky little way said - "How about... NO."

What do we do with her?

Kylie Starting Eating Real Food

Kylie seems to be getting hungry between meals - so it occurred to me that we hadn't started her on solid foods yet. After looking back on what we did with the twins - it looks like we had already started them by now on cereal.

So - for dinner, Kylie got mixed cereal. It took me a little while to realize that she was actually supposed to get plain rice cereal (so you only add one grain at a time to make sure she doesn't have any allergies). Oh well - the twins didn't have any allergies, so I'm guessing Kylie won't either. More than guessing - HOPING.

Kylie is 5 month old!

Kylie turned 5 months old today. She's now in size 3 diapers. We have bottles 5 times a day, and will be adding cereal in soon too. Kylie wears mostly 3 - 6 month outfits - and I love that so many of them were Kate's. It's sweet to see those hand-me-downs(although I'm sure she won't appreciate it much when she becomes a teenager).

Kylie is her own little happy person. She just loves being with people and waves her arms to any music that she hears. She now only cries of she hungry or tired, and who can blame a girl for that? Her eyes are still blue - but don't know if they'll stay that way. Kylie's hair is fairly dark, and she has a long dark swirl int he back just like Kate had. She reminds me a lot of Kate. Check out the pic from when Kate and Connor turned 5 months old. What do you think??? Maybe some of each?

Kylie just now started rolling over from her back to her tummy, but hasn't figured out yet how to roll over the other direction. Just a matter of time. She loves sitting up in her bouncer so she can look around the room and see where everyone is.

Isn't she lovely

The twins have had a bit of a cold this week. For Kate, it's been a little worse with a tummy bug to boot. At breakfast she had her head in her hands, which looked so sad. That's when she got sick again.

Well - most everything had to go in to the laundry, including our ubiquitous "pink" (her favorite stuffed animal for about a year now). When pink came out of the dryer - Kate said that she loved "lovely"! That's a first time hearing her say that.
