We spent this week up in Bath, PA visiting my Aunt Charlene and Uncle Tim. Kaylee made sure we were up to speed on the plane safety features before we left Raleigh. Kaylee waited until the plane was landing to fall asleep and then slept the whole walk to baggage claim and the car. Aunt Charlene and Uncle Tim took us to South Philly to experience a REAL Philly Cheesesteak at Geno's. Soooo yummy!
On Thursday we drove up to New York to visit John's family. This is Kaylee with her Great-Grandma Newbold and second cousin Raymond (John's cousin) John's Aunt Kathy and her twin boys Raymond and Johnny took us to the Queens Zoo. Isn't she the cutest baby eagle you've ever seen? Kaylee loved the llamas! She petted them without any hesitation.
The next day we toured around the local Pennsylvania area.
And tomorrow we're headed home. I wish we lived closer, it has been a great week!
I made this dress for Kaylee this week forgetting the "rule" that you're not suppose to wear white after labor day...good thing that isn't until tomorrow! Whew! Just in the nick of time. Luckily it's big enough that it will at least fit as a shirt next summer. :)
"How do you like my new dress?"
"And my matching barrette?"
"I'm such a big girl!"
"When I see the camera I like to be silly"
"Let's explore the jungle!"
"Dear God, Thank you for the wonderful weather today and my pretty new dress. Amen."
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!
