playin the grass with her new ball

so kimberly got a new purple ball and it was finally nice enough outside that we could go out in the yard and play with it. shes getting used to the grass...still doesnt like the pokey feeling on her feet.

kimmys first night as a big girl!

so last night i took kimmy into her room where her new toddler bed is and she crawled in bed, pulled the covers up and went to sleep. she slept all night in her own bed without fighting or a fit or crying. i am so proud of this new accomplishment! she is growing up so fast!

new adventures

this last few years have flown by! i cannot believe that miss Kimberly Jade will be 2 in less than 6 months! she has accomplished so much in the last 18 months its crazy! she went from birth and having to be re-admitted to the hospital for jaundice, to being my little glow worm at home on the portable "billy-light" to bring her "billy" levels down and to not be my little yellow babygirl. then it was the big move to aunt katies and uncle aarons for assistance with the new baby for mommy... then back to klamath a few months later and into a new place with auntie lynny at 7 months. a great first birthday with cousins and friends lexi and chloe. it was princess themed!! all hot pink and awesome. mom went all out for this one! got lots of cool toys and cute outfits!! had a blast.
this last month was very eventful... kimberly had a few weeks long stay with aunt katie and uncle aaron, which she did awesome! learned a lot of new things from cousins and aunt katie. kimmy is no longer in the highchair, she gets up to the table and sits like a big girl. then she was home for a week and back to aunt katies for another week or so because mommy had surgery to fix some of the things that were messed up with a vaginal delivery...TMI already yes i know hehe. and then back to mommys after her bout on bedrest was complete... we are adjusting to life back to normal...just in time to move yet again into our own place. just me and kimberly.

since november for me, life has been a little busier. i have started back to school attending college online through Grand Canyon University to obtain my bachelors degree in elementary education with an emphasis in english. i will be certified in oregon and arizona to teach K-8... i am very excited to say that since my start in january, i have maintained a 4.0 gpa and have been kickin butt! i will be graduating college in june of 2014! and it will be just in time to start teaching when kimberly starts school. am hoping i will be able to teach at the same school she will attend. i want to start out teaching the first grade and see how that goes. i am so lucky to have been inspired to pursue this career by the wonderful english teacher Mrs. Myers i had at Henley. she is truly the best mentor i have ever had!
there has been a lot going on, especially in the last few months, in the lives of me and kimberly. we are moving into our new place in about 2 weeks...still have yet to find out where it is. i will know more in a week or so. i have decided that getting a dog (a yellow lab) will be a good choice since kimberly needs a play companion. :)i have found out who my true friends are and they are not who i thought they would be. i have had to cut ties with a few of the toxic ones, and swallow my pride and apologize to the best ones. so far this year has been smooth sailing and i intend to keep it that way. i will let the trouble roll off and embrace the sweet time i am able to spend with my little girl...there will never be a time as precious as this! i am truly blessed!!
