We have a singer

Ignore my singing voice and focus on the cuteness.

passed out

Last night was only the second time ever Kaitlyn has fallen asleep on the couch. I have fond memories of falling asleep on the couch with my mom or dad and being carried off to bed. Some times I would fake being asleep just so I could get carried to bed.
At any rate this was the first time I got to carry her to bed. I loved every single minuet of it. She snuggled up next to me right when I put her in my arms. I looked at her beautiful little face the entire walk to her bed. Yes I know I am a sap!
Here is Kaitlyn passed out on the couch:
The reason she was tuckered out enough to fall asleep on the couch is because she did not take a nap. She decided it would be better to play quietly in her room for two hours instead of sleeping. She does this about once a week now.

Rhino, Rayray, and Poo

I have been meaning to post this for a while but have been very busy with some large school projects and life in general. At any rate, this video is just too funny.
We had a poo incident today. I got a call from Gracie saying Kaitlyn had a poo stuck and it would not come out. She tried everything, massaging her tummy, Vaseline on the putter hole, bike petal her legs... I called the doctor and she said try a warm bath and if that did not work use a suppository. Luckily for us the warm bath worked. Poor baby, I am sure her butt did not feel good with a poo stuck part way out.
Now I am off to bleach the tub and her toys.... glad it is Friday!

Banana Slicer

If you are ever having a bad day I suggest you read the amazon reviews on the Hutzler Banana Slicer.
They are sure to brighten your day.  It would be awesome to publish a book of funny amazon reviews for useless products.
^^^ That actually is a great idea, I could become wealthy! Don't you dare steal my idea, I will sue you!!!!!!!

Today was the first time I took Kaitlyn to the beach. I know, why did I wait so long when I live so close to the beach?  The answer is, I have no idea what took me so long. It has been so long since I have been to our local beach that I almost forgot how to get there (drive down one street till I hit the beach) and almost forgot to bring quarters for the parking meeters.
Well we made it there just fine, I did not make any unnecessary turns resulting in us getting lost. I had a lot of stuff to carry so Kaitlyn walked (holding my hand) all the way to the spot we claimed as our own. We had to climb down a lot of stairs, I should have taken the ramp, but Kaitlyn did great.
Turns out Kaitlyn is a fish like me. She wanted to be in the water the entire time. We only ended up staying for one hour because I got tired, LOL. I had to hold her hands the entire time she was in the water because even the smallest wave seemed to knock her over. We were only ankle deep... Overall it was a great day.
I cannot wait to go again :)

Happy Birthday Kaitlyn

Today Kaitlyn turned two. She is such a cutie! Here are some pics from today - her birthday:
Early this morning right before leaving for work/daycare
After work/daycare playing with her new birthday present - I think she likes it.
My little baby is no longer a baby. sniffle sniffle

her likes:
TV show: Yo Gabba Gabba
Songs: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Wheels on the Bus, she sings along to them as best as she can and does hand motions to them as well. Very cute!
Colors: Purple and Yellow are still the only crayons she grabs to color with.
Drawing skills: She now does more rounded scribbles where as before it was just back and forth scribbles.
Toy: a stuffed monkey from Build a Bear that she named Pizza. Pizza is her best friend, he helps her clean up, rides in her rhino with her, eats bananas, she cooks pretend meals for him, and he loves to watch tv.
Skills: She loves to jump. She has a bounce house that she loves and a trampoline that she loves. Her new trick is to try to jump over something or from one spot to the next.
Games: I got you is her favorite game. Her and David play it together. It is hide and seek with some chasing involved.
Books: She still loves Potty by Leslie Patricelli and even reads along with me. She like Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see? and The Foot Book by Dr. Seuss. Her good old favorites still get pulled out every once in a while: Sally Sheep, Dolly Duck, and Happy Hen.
She still loves shoes but is very particular with what she will wear. It takes her time to get into a new pair and she does not like to mix things up much, as in a different pair of shoes to match an outfit. Her pink glitter shoes are worn with everything.

2nd birthday party

Saturday was Kaitlyn's 2nd birthday party. It was a hot and muggy day so in addition to the jumpy I took the water table out. That was a great idea. All the kids loved it. Here are a few pics of the decorations:
The cupcakes I made:
And the birthday girl:

Kaitlyn had a blast with all her friends and cousins. I wish we could do a party once a month just for her to get to play with everybody.
Today is her actual birthday! I want to go to Disneyland!!!! Instead I am stuck at work and Kaitlyn is at daycare.
