Indoor Voice

Kaitlin is getting more personality by the second it seems these days! She is so funny and it is fun to see her growing up and changing so fast!


Just saying hello!


We are trying to teach Kaitlin to use her “indoor voice”


This is her shhhhshing with her new found voice! It is too cute! She will tell us to be quiet when we are talking too loud. We are learning to practice what we are teaching!

Family Fun

This is Kaitlin’s favorite thing to do to us now!! Pile evey toy she can find on us!!!


She is so proud here!!


She also LOVES books and can not get enough!


Sweet sweet times with our family!


Kaitlin was so excited to wear her new summer pajamas! She clapped for them and them ran out of her room on a mission and brought back her dinosaur that matched her pajamas! She was beyond thrilled and she has slept with pinky the dinosaur ever since.


This is the 1st animal I have ever let her keep in the crib and she is so proud!


She loves her new buddy and is the 1st thing she shows me in the morning when she wakes up


Sweet hugs for pinky!

Watermelon Weekend

It was another wonderful warm weekend in NWA !! All 3 of us went to the pool and tried to stay cool in this hot summer weather. We went to church this morning and had a wonderful service. We are so thankful for our amazing church. It makes Arkansas feel like home!IMG_9058

I love Kaitlin’s watermelon dress. It looks so summery and it feels like a picnic! This is Kaitlin’s new friend bunny!


She calls him HOP and makes him hop while she says it! It is too cute!


We all got ready so early today that we had extra time to play. This our very favorite friend Perry! IMG_9065

She was so excited to go to church!


Kaitlin took a 4 hour nap today after church! I would like to know what they did so we can repeat it everyday. Thankful for a wonderful weekend!

Goldfish Adventure

Kaitlin LOVES goldfish anytime of day. It is her usual snack when we run errands and it keeps her happy! So we were at Wal-Mart and Kaitlin starts getting very upset and I can not figure out what is wrong. I see out of the corner of my eye a huge brownish character with a tail walking around. It was Mr. Goldfish from Pepperidge Farms, except he was either dirty or not the original goldfish! He was brownish so maybe he is a new flavor. Kaitlin HATED him and we could not get out of the store fast enough!


She will still eat goldfish so it was not too traumatic!


I can not believe that this is my daughter! When did she get so big!

Pool Day

Kaitlin has NEVER been a fan of hats! Even when she was a baby she hated wearing a hat! I keep trying and I had success when we went to the pool! I was so excited and could not believe the cuteness of the hat bathing suit combo! It was short lived and she took the hat off as soon as we got to the pool!


Kaitlin was obviously less excited about her hat


Last year Kaitlin loved the pool and was so sad every time we had to go home. She has not LOVED the pool this year and she would rather snack then play in the water!

First day of summer

It has been summer in NWA for a while but today it is officially summer!!! We LOVE summer!


This is Kaitlin’s all time favorite game! Chase! She plays chase everyday and she is very serious about her game!


It helps get some extra energy out before bedtime!


It takes concentration!


The poor person being chased…. Kory is a great sport!


All in the name of a good night’s sleep! Happy Summer!

Laid back Weekend

Kaitlin had a little cold last week and gave it to Kory as an early Father’s Day present! It was the gift that kept on giving so all 3 of us had a summer cold over the weekend! I felt so bad that we did nothing grand or exciting for Kory but we were all together so that was what really mattered!


It was a very low key weekend but we are all feeling better and ready for the week!


I look at these pictures and I am amazed at how big my little girl is….. I am with her everyday but she is so grown up here!


Swinging in the big girl swing!! She thinks she is so BIG!

Happy Birthday Aunt Rachel

Happy Birthday Aunt Rachel! We hope you have a wonderful day!


You are such a wonderful aunt and an amazing sister! You are so thoughtful and selfless! I am so proud of you and all that you have accomplished. I am so thankful to have you as a friend and you are the best secret keeper around!


Thank you for being so much fun and loving us so much!


It is AMAZING how much Rachel and Kaitlin are alike!! Kaitlin does some of the same things Rachel did when she was little! They both love goldfish and take a little while to wake up in the morning! I was thinking about it today and would consider it such a blessing if Kaitlin grew up to be like her Aunt Rachel! She is a Godly woman and is a wonderful role model for our daughter! Happy Birthday Rachel! We love you!
