This past week, Grandpa Rowe and Michele came out to visit Kaylee! It was obvious that Kaylee recognized her Grandpa from all the daily "skyping" we do. She was fascinated by him and was immediately comfortable with him. Video chatting is an amazing way to keep families close!
Tonight's entertainment: Mommy singing and dancing! (and you wondered where Kaylee got her long tongue...sheesh!)
We walked around the Raleigh Flea Market for the first time since moving here. The weather was wonderful this week! Then we headed to Red, Hot, and Blue for dinner. It's Grandpa's favorite restaurant. Kaylee was a big girl and sat in the restaurant high chair! She also tasted a lemon and a pickle for the first time. She liked both of them and wasn't happy when mommy wouldn't let her actually eat them!
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!
