Leap Day

Happy Leap Day!! We have a beautiful day here after some scary storms last night! Kaitlin and I were running errands this morning and we had so much fun!

Kaitlin loves stoplights and will say Green …go!! And gets a little upset when you have to stop..but she knows red light stop! Kaitlin is my little GPS she knows our way home and will tell me which way to turn!


Kaitlin told Kory to “look out GOAT” while we were out running errands this weekend! Kory was not convinced but Kaitlin was right and there was a goat running around in the road! Kory managed to get the goat out of the road and home safely! Kaitlin now looks for the goat everyday and calls out “ Goat where are you?” when we pass the goat! Kaitlin remembers everything!!


Hope you have a wonderful extra day of 2012!

Kaitlin’s thoughts

We had an amazing weekend in NWA!! I think Kaitlin spent the majority of it outside! She played and played and played some more!  She played hard and slept hard so it was a wonderful weekend!


She is such a chatter box these days and just talks and talks and talks! Today she told me all about Captain Hook and Peter Pan! It was a very long story but she was happy to report after 15 minutes that Peter Pan found his shadow and was very happy!


She is saving a seat for Colin! She goes in his room everyday and looks in his crib! I can’t wait to see her reaction when he is finally there!


Kaitlin LOVES animals these days and could name them for hours.The show we were watching Saturday had this ugly bird on it and Kaitlin called it a “Dodo Bird” and it was really a “dodo bird”. I was amazed and wonder where in the world she gets this stuff!!


She decided Colin’s room need “More Animals” and decorated his room for his arrival! Kaitlin is so excited and can’t wait to play with him.


She will be 3 in less than a month and I am amazed at how big she is getting everyday!

On the mend

Kaitlin was feeling better to go to school yesterday!! They even got to play outside! It was an amazing 70 degree day in February!! We will take it! Today was cold and blustery but I guess it is still winter so it was OK!


Kaitlin requested to go in car and eat chicken! Chick fila was our destination and exciting adventure of the day! She is feeling better for sure today! Tonight she wanted an ice cream cone so we already have a date planned for tomorrow!


Kaitlin watched “Bambi” today for the 1st time in almost a year! Last time we attempted to watch it it was a bust! Today she LOVED “BAAM” and named every animal the entire time! It was too cute!


Kaitlin asks about her brother every day! She even calls him on her play phone! We ask when he says he is coming and her response everyday is “it’s a surprise!” Such a funny girl!


We are so thankful that Kaitlin is feeling better and are excited about the weekend!!

Under the weather

Poor Kaitlin has been running a little fever all week! No other symptoms just a fever! She has been kinda grumpy and extra clingy. She wants to sit on me most of the day and gets frustrated that my lap is running out of room!  We have had a pajama week so far! Trying to get my girl back to feeling better!


Today we played “cards”! And by cards I mean make a huge mess and then attempt to clean it up at 9 months pregnant! No picture of the clean up!

Kaitlin’s FAVORITE thing of all is her blanket or “pink blankie” as she is calling it these days! It had to be washed today and she waited by the dryer until it was finished! She rescued it and has not let it out of sight since!

Hoping she will feel better in the next few days! We are snuggled up watching “the puppy movie” Lady and the Tramp and “birdie movie” Rio is up next!

First Haircut

Kaitlin got her 1st haircut on Saturday!! She did an amazing job at sitting still and did not cry at all. It went so much better than expected!!

She was a little unsure at first.


But she did great! So proud of our big girl!


Not loving the hairdryer


The cute little place that cut her hair had snacks and Toy Story playing! It was so kid friendly and Kaitlin loved it!


Big girl hair!


We stopped by the mall and Kaitlin requested to ride the mall merry go round! We always ride the “mall dog” with Gigi is Knoxville and Kaitlin always picks the blue dog!It is so funny she picked the same dog to ride! That girl never forgets anything!

Baby Boats

After 3 years of waiting, I am finally getting to use my baby boat bedding! We originally thought Kaitlin was a boy due to very early ultrasound and inaccurate doctor. They said “boy”, so as a crazy 1st time mom, I went and bought an entire nursery set only to find out a few months later we were having a GIRL!!! Kory let me keep everything and what a blessing he did! I was so excited to finally get it all out and have it in a room!

February 2012 p2 023

I was very skeptical about getting the room set up because we bought things 3 years ago & had to buy some more once we found out last year it was a boy.  Kory worked so hard the past two weekends, and I could not be happier!!

February 2012 p2 025

I am amazed at how different it is from Kaitlin’s room! It is all boy and very BLUE!

February 2012 p2 027

I am crazy about the cute sheets.

February 2012 p2 028

Blackout curtains were a must!! We were slow to learn with Kaitlin, but we are starting out right the second time around.

Can’t wait to have our sweet baby boy here to see his new room! We had a great sneak peek at him yesterday during my ultrasound, and he is a cutie! He looks like he might have the same little nose as Kaitlin and is measuring 6.5 lbs at 36 weeks! We are so thankful for a great checkup!

Valentines Day!


Kaitlin’s Valentine

It is so neat to see the special bond Kaitlin and her Daddy have… it is a very special relationship!

February 2012 p2 001

They are buddies and have very specific routines!

February 2012 p2 002

He puts her to bed every night and she wants nothing to do with me!! He is way more fun and knows how to do everything just right!

February 2012 p2 004

This shirt says it all and I think she is crazy about him!

February 2012 p2 008

Kaitlin even uses him as her personal jungle gym!


They go on Daddy Daughter dates and have so much fun!!


Kaitlin wanted to say “I U” to her Valentine!!

Cozy Day

Well, Snowmaggedon 2012 was a slight bust.  4” predictions turned into 1” and some sleet & freezing rain on top.  Temperatures actually got above freezing most of the day so what little snow we did get has mostly melted.  That didn’t stop Kaitlin from having fun today.  She thinks she is SO funny with Face Time!


Poor Kaitlin didn’t get to go outside to make snow angels because by the time she got up from her nap she would’ve been making dirty snow / grass angels.  It didn’t stop her from practicing in the living room!


She did stay really warm inside the house today thanks to her cozy outfit that Mrs. Pat & Mr. Johnny gave her for Christmas.  Other than the snow, she was talking about the butterfly on her sweatshirt all day!


Uh oh – watch out Kory!! We are looking at Pottery Barn Kids catalogs and Kaitlin has GREAT taste!! You may not want any more snow!!
