I can't believe it's not butter!

Kaylee prefers to lounge in her high chair, sitting off to one side rather than directly in the middle of the seat. She uses her left foot up against the left side of the chair to hold herself in place in her beloved right corner of the chair. The other night we went to take her out of the chair only to find that she was stuck. Her foot had gone through the slats of the high chair and wasn't going to budge. I was ready to get some tools and bust open the slats when John had the brilliant idea of using the random spray butter we had in the back of the fridge. I bought this spray several years ago when we were having friends over for dinner and I knew it was something they enjoyed. But I don't think it's been used since and has just been taking up space in our fridge. Little did we know it would come in handy! So with a little spritz here and a little spray there, rub rub rub, out slid her foot. Whew! Crisis averted!

Today she did it again, but for some reason it slid out just fine this time.

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!
