Well, my little guy is growing up. I love waking up in the morning (I lied, I hate getting up in the morning but since I have to...) and hearing Kasen talking to himself and making his little squeals and giggles. It is amazing to me to see him grow and learn new things. He just loves his daddy, grandma, and me. He crawls all over the place and has begun to clap his hands. He can turn on and off the light switch. He smiles almost all of the time. He tries so hard to communicate, by gurgling or squealing or even just different sounds all of the time. Even in his sleep! He hates to be confined to his high chair or car seat. He will be 1 in less than a month and half. I can't believe how time flys.

I haven't posted in a long time due to the fact that my computer won't let me upload pictures from my camera! It is very frustrating! I am supposed to get help with it from my neighbor, when I can ask her again... so until then SORRY!

While feeding Kasen one morning he put his leg up to get more comfortable. Sometimes he even tries to stick his toes in his mouth in between bites of food for some "toe jam."

Finished, Tranformation, Luau, and Escape

So you all should know by now that I am very bad at keeping you all "interested" in our little crazy lives of the Kelander family! So I will now present you with an overkill of what we do....


The picture just does not do it's justice in how beautiful it really isI don't know if any of you remember that dresser that Koy and my mom were working on last year when I was pregnant, it was quite a few posts back; well anyways this year with my mom and my aunt Diane helping it got finished! It is so gorgoeus and better yet it is done! (Thanks for the help!)


As you can see this was a chrysalis and transformed into a beautiful butterfly! A husband and wife in my ward catch butterflies and then kill them and display them. They don't just catch them but they get them as caterpillars and watch them turn into butterflies. They gave me the opportunity to watch this little miracle happen. It was one of the coolest things ever!

On Labor Day; Koy, Kasen and I went with my mom and dad; Brandt and Whitney to Thanksgiving Point in Lehi for their annual Luau. W e pretty much stayed for the dinner and the beginning quarter of the show. Kasen got a horsey ride from dad and gave me lots of kisses and he had to ham it up for the camera! He loves to get his picture taken.


The End!

A Quarter of a Century

Now I am old! Koy informed me on my birthday that I am a quarter of a century now. How does this make me feel? OLD! But at least I am not 30!...yet....I am sorry I never took pictures but I can tell you what we did. My mom came up and watched Kasen. So off we went to play; we went to lunch at Tucano's. I dragged Koy to several stores to find an outfit. I got a pair of jeans and a a cute hooded sweater-type-deal- thingamjig. My mom and dad got me a bigger crockpot, a bullentin board thing that I picked out a few months ago, and some big aluminum cookie sheets. We came home and put Kasen to bed and watched a movie called Yes Man, very funny movie. ( I cried from laughing so hard!) Yeah, it was a great birthday! Then on Sunday, my brother Brandt, mom and dad, and grandma and grandpa came over for cake and icecream.

On the matter of

Kasen slept last night from 9 pm to 7 am. Even though I still checked on him what seemed like a million times... It was the most amazing thing ever. How I did this you might wonder or ask? I read a recommeded book from a friend called On Becoming Baby Wise. It was hard at first but the results in the end are phenomenal! I thought it was great that I can train Kasen to do this at 5 months because the book actually says that you can begin on day one. I hope that Kasen continues this wonderful sleeping time!

Over the weekend

Over the weekend we went to my nephew's and neices' dance festival and silly me I forgot to take pictures! The OC's tournament games in Payson were on Saturday. Unfortunately they lost all their games...Here are some pictures of Brandt and Seth up to bat. On Sunday we went to church and up to Koy's grandpa's for dinner. Yesterday we went to a friend's house for a BBQ, again I forgot to take pictures until I got home where I snapped this one of Kasen in his new outfit!

Is he?

Is he really teething? Drooling, check. (Does he ever!) Gum sensitivity, check. Fussiness, check. (But that is what he is 80% of the time...) Biting Behavior, check. (He tries to play with nipple of the bottle, quite funny really.) Refusing food, not quite a check. (More or less plays with food again see above comment) Sleep problems, again not quite a check because he is an on and off again good sleeper. When I checked his gumline on the top you can see outlines of his new teeth to be. He must be!

I got it on camera

I have been trying to get a picture of Kasen smiling and I can never take one fast enough. Now I can say that I have! Does he not have the cutest smile ever? ( I'm a mom what can I say!)

Kasen's Baby Blessing

Kasen received his baby blessing yesterday. Afterwards Koy's family and mine ate a light lunch and was able to chat with one another. Koy gave such an amazing blessing.

I am so grateful that he (Koy) holds the Melchizedek Priesthood and was able to do that for Kasen. Thanks everyone for coming and that brought a salad! It was a great turnout.


I threw Koy a surprise birthday party at my neighbor's apartment with some friends from the ward. I asked Koy to take me to a store and then on the way home I told him that we had to stop at Matt and Megan's because I wanted to show him their shelves that Matt had made for their laundry room. Koy didn't really want to but he did just to make me happy. He knocked on the door and when Matt answered the door everyone yelled surprise and Koy not knowing that the "surprise " was for him said surprise back. :) I laughed and told him that it was for him. He was pretty shocked. Thanks Megan for letting us do it there and making such a wonderful sheet cake! All the friends that came thanks for showing how much you care about Koy!
