"swimming"

We were given a blow-up baby pool as a shower gift last year but it said 18+ months on the package so I had put it away. Turns out it was small enough I could have been using it for a bathtub this entire time! It is such a cute little pool, called The Tadpole. ha! She had a blast splashing, filling up the cups and pouring water out of the cups. Thanks Carolina!!



We don't have a bathtub in this house (well, the master bath has a jacuzzi but that's not very practical for a baby) so Kaylee takes showers. She's great at showers but I do hope that we can get the tub put in her bathroom so she can be the quintessential kid, playing with toys in the tub, taking pictures with her hair shampooed into a mohawk, etc. For now, I may be using this pool as her "tub"!

Then

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!
