For MY birthday, Kaylee got a Bumbo seat! Funny how shopping for myself has gone out the window! This last week Kaylee has been doing sit ups when she is laying on her playmat or in my lap. She prefers to sit and is pretty good at holding her head up. So last night we bought a Bumbo at the kid's consignment shop in Apex. It also works really well when we Skype with Grandpa!
During the last few weeks of pregnancy, Kate listened to Brad Paisley's new song "Then". She didn't just listen to it a few times, she obsessively played the song on repeat, learned every word, and sung it at the top of her lungs while driving. Then one day a few weeks after Kaylee was born, Kate was driving with Kaylee by themselves. Kaylee began to cry...then scream. It didn't matter how much Kate reassured her, pulled over to make sure something wasn't wrong, or attempted to hold the pacifier in place with one arm backwards while driving. It finally occurred to Kate that maybe Kaylee wants mommy to sing to her (although no one else would want this!). So Kate put track #4 on and began to sing. Kaylee immediately calmed down. Low and behold, it's not even mommy's singing that Kaylee likes! It's Brad's!
