Drew's 2nd Soccer Game

Drew had his 2nd soccer game last Saturday. It went really well. He walked right onto the field and listened to his coach.

As I watched Drew during warm ups, he is a very great listener and followed the coaches directions. When asked to play in the field, he runs out to where the coach tells him. When it's Drew's turn to rest, he sits and watches the game. He's doing a great job. Just hoping to get him to be a little more aggressive, but that will come in time.

Bowling with Friends

Last week, Drew, Kyra, and I went bowling with some friends. Drew was really the only one bowling, but Kyra and I had fun too.

Here's a picture of most of "the gang" bowling.

Drew and Kyra having fun!

Kyra's 2 Year Well Check

I brought Kyra in for her 2 year well check on Tuesday morning. Man....that did not go well. She literally started crying from the moment the nurse brought us into the room until we left the room. Not fun. And she didn't even get any shots.

Kyra hid her face in my armpit crying while the doctor and I tried to talk. Wasn't any fun. Other than her behavior at the doctors office, she's doing great.

She is 36.7 inches tall (99.9% of girls her age are shorter than her). She weighed 24.4 lbs (80% - 20% of girls her age weigh more than her).

Time does really does go faster each and every day. I love being home to watch, nurture, play, spoil, teach, read, and everything else with my kids. Love'em to death!

Kyra's 2nd Birthday Party

On Sunday, we had some friends over to help celebrate Kyra's 2nd birthday. We had a ladybug theme...which was super cute. I had planned several games/activities for the kids to do, BUT it choose to rain on us, so we moved into the garage and made "do".

The kids got to Put the spot and the Ladybug, Throw the Ladybug on the Leaf, read ladybug books, and do ladybug arts and crafts. It was a really fun party, and Kyra received many great gifts. It was a very special day for her!

Hope you enjoy the pictures, sure missed having family there to help with the and miss you all!

Drew's 1st soccer game!

Drew had his very first soccer game ever this morning. Being that Mike and I have NEVER played soccer before, we weren't sure what to expect.

Drew got off to a rocky start...crying and not wanting to go out and play. After a talking from mom and dad, he said he'd try it. I had to go out onto the field with Drew for a little while. He began to feel more comfortable with each kick.

When the game started, Drew was a different kid. He played almost the whole game with a smile on his face. He chased after the ball and the kids. He said his favorite part was kicking the ball.

He did a great job and had fun! We left the soccer field wanting to go back next Saturday and do it again. I chalk that up to a success. Enjoy the pictures!

Kyra's 2nd Birthday

On September 11, 2007, Kyra Lee Belleson was born. It was love at first sight for Mike, Drew, and I. Kyra was a beautiful baby! She was 8.8 lbs and 21 inches long.

Friday we celebrated Kyra's 2nd birthday by having some friends over to play and have cupcakes. Mike and I gave her a new kitchen set for her birthday, so she had fun playing with it with her friends.

Drew and Kyra celebrated all day long. Drew was into giving Kyra "birthday hugs." It was really cute! When Mike got home, we had dinner and opened presents she had gotten in the mail from family. Kyra loved all her presents, she was putting on and playing with them all right away!

We are having a birthday party for Kyra on Sunday with her (and our) friends. I will post those pictures early next week.

Kyra is such a blessing in our lives. We treasure each and every moment! Hope you enjoy the pictures!
