I'm Melting!!!

It is super hot now. Every year I don't think it's going to be that bad and I quickly remember just how hot it gets here. Yikes! Even the frogs are trying to cool off. There were two frogs chillin' in Kylie's pool in the backyard. It was hilarious. I couldn't blame them. Kylie is continuing her mermaid fascination and now has flippers for the pool that look like a mermaid tail. She's swimming really well with them! We've gotten into a battle with our nap time. It's bitter sweet really. She goes to bed earlier and much quicker at night with no nap, but she can be such a terror in the late afternoon! Of course, she doesn't think she ever needs one, but I beg to differ. I'm not really sure what the answer is, but I guess we'll just take it day by day.

Yesterday I got an epidural steriod in my lower back to alleviate some of the pain and discomfort I've been having lately due to a herniated disc. It all started when I was pregnant with Kylie and has progressively gotten worse. I'm a little sore now, but I have big hopes that this will really feel great soon!

Other than that, it's business as usual at the Biehler Household!

Made for Hollywood

Well, it seems like the only things I really write about are Kylie, but I enjoy telling fun stories about her escapades! The newest fun we've had is the mermaid dress Grandma Mary bought her. It's hilarious and the pose she made for the pictures just says it all. She's so into mermaids write now. Everything is mermaids! Then, today as I was busy working on my computer in the office, she comes dragging her table from the kitchen in here so she can have a tea party. It's a big table for such a little girl! Then, she set up her tea party and we sang Happy Birthday to her bears and wrapped presents for them. What an imagination!

July 4th Fun

We had a great July 4th weekend! Kylie couldn't wait to go swimming. We couldn't swim for a week after she got her ear tubes, so she was anxious to get out there! Grandma Debbie and Big Pa joined us too. Kylie's quite the little waterbaby. People are always asking me how old she is and where did she learn to swim. I can't take credit, though. She really did it herself. It's funny how she's afraid of the hair dryer and the vacuum and yet swimming in deep water is no biggie to her. She'll jump from any height, try any trick, take any challenge, but turn that hair dryer on and she's outta there! Too funny. Adam and I got to spend some time with friends at the lake too which was nice. I learned that I'm actually quite good at horseshoes. Who'd have known? Here are some fun pics!

Kitty Kitty

This is cheesy, but Pudge was sitting in one of Kylie's little chairs and it was the perfect picture moment. Poor Pudge sometimes gets lost in the mix between Kylie and Harley. He's so cute, I just love him!

Kylie is starting to get back to her normal self after getting her 2nd set of ear tubes and her adnoids removed last Thursday. She was a trooper. I got nervous when it seemed to take ages for her to wake up. They wouldn't let us leave until she could drink water or juice on her own. So, Adam and I kept trying to get her awake enough to do that and she kept saying "No, I just need to rest." So, we waited and waited until finally the glossy eyes lifted and she sat up and had some juice. Man, we were glad! We had to lay low all weekend which gave us all a bit of cabin fever. Lots of movies! She's back at Champions camp this week and seems to be happy to get out of the house! I'm happy too. It was making us all grumpy! I sure hope this will be the end to all our ear infection days. The ENT seems to think it will do the trick. Keep your fingers crossed!
