I bet you can guess what Kinley's first word was! Watch this:
That's right! Her wonderful "Bubba" was blessed with being her first word! She just loves him so much! She started this Wednesday night when we were still in Vegas. We were getting ready for bed and she just started up with the "ba ba ba"-ing. I guess she missed him. Now I know that babies start babbling at this age, but I think it is no coincidence that she decided to pick that sound to start with! (Finn's first was "Dada").

We moved into our new home last week. It was very exhausting, but we got all of our stuff over here in a little less than 24 hours. So far it is truly amazing! We really like the new house and all the space. Even doing the dishes is more enjoyable (the water actually gets hot fast!). Kinley has been napping so much better too in her new secluded room. It's awesome. I'll post pics and whatnot soon.
We also went to Vegas! I had some serious doubts about going on Sunday night. Kinley had just had a very fussy day and I didn't want to go if I was just going to be trying to calm a crying baby the whole time. But Monday she woke up in a great mood and we had a great trip! She really came out of her shell in Vegas too. It was probably the millions of people that stopped us to tell her how cute she was! Here's some highlights:
The gardens at Bellagio. They had the coolest fringed tulips!:
The white lions at the Sigfried and Roy Dolphin and Wildlife Habitat. This was probably the best part of the trip. We got to see a lot of cool dolphin tricks and then some white lions and tigers. The lions started getting a bit "frisky" with one another (I've got it on video). There were 3 male white Siberian tigers in a pen together and 2 of them got in a fight right in front of the crowd! It was evidently kind of a big deal. The trainers were getting very worried. Too cool:
Here's the 3 of us on top of the Eiffel Tower. We went here with Finn two years ago too, but he slept through it:
We saw Britney while we were there! She posed for a special shot with Kinley (who thought she was getting lunch):

I don't really mind. I understand it brings him comfort. But I feel bad for the little guy. He can obviously tell something is going on. I just hope it doesn't shock him too much when we move in. He's pretty funny with the pacifiers though. He collects about 3 at a time and carries them EVERYWHERE in the house with him. He even has a little cup that he puts them in. Sweet guy.
Another thing I'm looking forward to is the time change on Sunday! Finn has been waking at the crack of dawn lately, so I'm glad that sunup will soon be around 7:30 instead of 6:30!
Kinley had a big milestone last week: She turned 6 months! Hard to believe. She has been teething so badly lately. It's really been affecting her nap schedule (and my stress level!). She regularly only takes 3-4 naps a day for 30 minutes each. It's very rare that she sleeps longer than that. And then she'll sleep 12-13 hours at night. Lately, it's been even more difficult to get her to nap. Anyway, blah blah blah, I hope those suckers just come in soon!
I wanted to mention a great website: Etsy. Most of my readers all ready know about this cool site, but in case you don't, it's shopping site for homemade items. It's amazing! You find some of the coolest stuff on there, espiecially cute accessories and clothes for kids. My friend Kristal (who is pretty amazing herself) sells some awesome signs under the handle gratefultulip. I recommend everyone to check it out!
