Jayhawks to Victory!




The whole family was in Jayhawk gear rooting on the big Blue! Are these not the cutest little Jayhawk fans you've ever seen?



I have to make sure to start them young, but here we go baby, riding the ladder to number one!!

Spring is Here

What a sweet treat it is when the weather finally turns over to spring! Soon we will be able to completely shed ourselves of our winter coats and move into our spring/summer wardrobe. Some new flip flops are calling my name! This picture of Sam reminds me of what summers and nice weather is all about. I mean, is there really anything better than sitting up high in a tree listening to the birds or wind blow around you? I am so anxious to play outside with the kids; a little fresh air is good for all of us. I have my Uncle Doug taking a peek at my bike for me so that the boys and I can get some good bike rides in the days to come.





Samuel has now discovered how fun and funny it is to jump in the air. He thinks it is particularly funny to mimic your actions, and even funnier when you mimic him. Sam can actually jump off the ground with both feet! I'm not sure when a child hits that milestone but I think it is impressive. Samuel also has a love for new shoes and new clothes (specifically his new Nike sport shorts). As soon as we came home from shopping he promptly sat down to take off his jeans so that I could put his new shorts on. He then started into wind sprints to show me how they surely did make him run faster than before! LOL. He also did the same when we brought home his new shoes he also has on in this picture. You might notice that they are on the wrong feet, Sam put them on by himself, but at least he is trying.




Isaac is so close to rolling over it isn't funny. If he could just figure out how to get his fat little arm out of the way he would have done it by now. He is also close to letting out his first giggle. I love this time where they interact with you by smiling or cooing. How heart bursting the little things are!

95th - 97th Percentile

Here is the latest update on just how chunky our littlest one is. At the doctor's yesterday he weighed in at 14lbs 2 1/2oz, and is now 24 1/2 inches long. In both height and weight he is in the 95-97th percentile. I have a feeling we are going to have a very large boy as he continues to get older. In comparison to his older brother; Samuel at 14 weeks (not 8 weeks) weighed in at 13lbs 14oz and was 26 inches long. Oh boy, how they grow!

Easter Fun

This is the first year that Samuel could participate in all the Easter festivities. He loved coloring the eggs, or balls as he puts it, and although we had messes we had a lot of fun!






This is the bath tub picture immediately following the dying of the eggs, and luckily the blue dye came right off.



And these are some from Easter morning. Sam loved the ball looking plastic eggs, but really loved hunting for the real ones (with some direction from mommy and daddy). I'm not sure that we even have one egg left that doesn't have cracks in it.






HAPPY EASTER FROM THE KELLENS

Happy to Sad




If you could see just how far Isaac's lip sticks out....by far the cutest pouty face I've ever seen, although Sam can pout just as cute.

Our Little Baby....




As you can see our oldest is wanting to be the baby all over again, and no, these pictures weren't staged. One day Sam just decided that Isaac's car seat seemed like a good place to take it easy. It is hard to keep Sam out of the baby stuff, and although he can be a handful these days he is also willing to be my big helper!

Shiner and we Don't know why...

Mysteriously in the middle of the night this happened. We'll start with beginning photos and taper off to what it looks like now. We are still in the process of healing and some days it looks like we have all the colors of the rainbow above his eye.

My Little Toady




If Isaac doesn't watch it he is going to catch up with his 27lbs brother! At 6 weeks Isaac is already 11lbs 11oz. Maybe all the ice cream I'm eating has something to do with it?! Kidding of course; I guess Isaac just has more of an appetite than his brother did. He is the sweetest little toady that I've ever seen. I love having babies!
