Michael was a champ and kept Stahle in the lodge the whole time. I appreciate him. At one point I had to go chase Stetson down who had gotten on the ski lift by himself, and during this time Kandace crashed and since I was helping Stetson, Michael had to climb the little hill by himself to rescue Kandace.
Someone suggested a hoola hoop for Kandace and I so I could control her speed better. It worked pretty good.

Stahle goes to bed about 8, sleeps all night, I go get her at about 7, then she eats about every 3-4 hrs, giving her 4, sometimes 5 feedings per day. Since we got the Y pretty regular now, her morning routine gets a little out of whack but we're better about being flexible and making adjustments.
She had a cold last week which was super sad, she lost her voice and her cry was more like a squeak.
We started giving her rice cereal, which she's not that great at yet, but we'll keep practicing. She smiles lots for us, even laughing at little sister Janelle quite a bit actually. Everyone is nuts about her and we're so grateful for her! I can't imagine life without our little beauty and I'm so glad we have her.
So a few things about my girl Kandace. First of all, I love her more than words can say and I am so grateful to have a girl in my house!! For a girl whose always been outnumbered, it is like winning the lottery to have a shopping buddy! Kandace Asay I love you to the moon!
*Kandace isn't a breakfast eater. Its one of our struggles in the morning to figure out what I can get her to eat before she's off to school
*Kandace is my biggest help around the house. She is always getting me diapers, throwing diapers away, getting me clean clothes for Stahle, she helps get Janelle's pjs on at night, even sometimes putting Janelle to bed which always seems like a good idea but I usually have to do it.
*Kandace is so good to Stahle and is my biggest helper in this area too. I used to be super nervous about Kandace handling Stahle at all but she's all over it now and I just keep a close eye, but Kandace will hold/play with her for quite a while if I'm trying to cook dinner or something. She's my little extra pair of hands. Its special to see that nurturing side of girls.
*She has started to read more all the sudden and its exciting! She can read a lot of the sight words in our books and is starting to sound words out really well. I'm glad we read those fancy nancy books so many times because its helped her confidence and interest level I think
*Kandace loves to hug and cuddle
*Kandace loves to sing and takes herself quite seriously when singing, especially when she sings to Stahle or gma Asay
*Kandace has the best laugh ever. It brightens my day and makes me so happy to hear her laugh
*Still our fruit fanantic. This is one thing I can almost always count on getting her to eat for breakfast.
Happy birthday beautiful girl. Mom loves you xoxoxox
