Successful Pictures

Our really good friend and photographer, Tiffany Fetter, took some great pictures of the kids this past weekend. I am so excited to share a few of them. This was the first time I really felt pictures ran smooth; I guess the candy I had in my pocket helped motivate Kaylinn to stay with it.

We also celebrated my sister in-law's birthday later that same day, and we learned the exciting news that Jarod and Chandra are expecting their first child in May! Yeah!!!! We couldn't be more thrilled...more cousins!

Pants found!!!

I walked into John David's room this afternoon after an unsuccessful nap, and what do I find....naked boy! I got him all cleaned up, and while he and Kaylinn were playing searched for his pants. BUT I could not find them. I moved the bed, not there; look acroos the room, not there. I even looked behind his changing table, not there. Then I started second guessing myself, did I take his pants off before his nap? I was pretty sure I hadn't. Well, I walk into Kaylinn's room, and guess what I guessed it, size 12 month camo pants. I called Kaylinn in, and while holding the pants she explained, "Yeah, mommy, those pants don't fit me." Apparently she decided to go in during nap time and see if she could wear her brother's pants. What a mess!!!

Today Kaylinn is wanting to be called Ariel, and she is often heard singing like the little red headed mermaid. In fact when people ask her name that is what she tells them, and some believe her! I wish I could figure out how to add video clips; David managed to get her on tape singing a few is hilarious! I find much of my day laughing at the things she says and does. Just yesterday she was waving to a group of neighborhood kids across th street and yelling, "Bye, Good-bye friends!" After getting inside I asked her what her friend's names were, and she told me, "Cinderella, Marlin, Nemo, and ummmm Pita." I have no idea where the name Pita came from. Needless to say most of the people I meet these days are due to Kaylinn taking to them or about them, which can be very scary!

I'll end with one of my favorite Kaylinn stories. Kaylinn and I were making a Walmart run beore John David was born. We were making our way down the cereal isle, when I heard a person's voice who sounded very mechanical, robotic....I guess they had had a trechiotomy (sp?) surgery. Well, I could see Kaylinn perk up and begin to listen intently, so I tried to hurry past, and was just out of range when Kaylinn began to speak like the person, "Mommy, want cereal." I almost died laughing. We met up w/ them again on another isle about the time Kaylinn had stopped her robot talking, but she quickly returned once she heard her friend talking. I smiled, nodded and kept walking.
