Happy Halloween!

I never really enjoyed dressing up as a kid, but I sure do love dressing Kaylee up! We got a CUTE flower costume from John's Aunt Kathy on our trip to PA/NY. Kaylee didn't want anything to do with the strap on the original flower hat so we went with a Kayteedids flower clip! John had to work tonight so he dressed up as a hunter.

Costume change! One of our favorite books to read is Ladybug GIrl. The costume wasn't exactly like Ladybug Girls, but it was the inspiration. She wouldn't keep the antennas on but fortunately I know a girl (wink wink) who makes super bows!

And check out Kaylee's debut on our favorite online magazine!!!! CupcakeMag | Sprinkles

AND for friends and family only, you can custom order tutus with a shirt or onesie from Kayteedids. They make great gifts, Halloween costumes (okay, so I'm late advertising), even Christmas "dresses", or just fun playtime. I'm not selling them to the public because I want to focus on my other items, but I do love making them so let me know if you're in the market and we can discuss all the fun options!

Pumpkin Patch

This is so fun! I love pumpkins!

Picking out pumpkins with my Daddy!

Hmmmmm. Daddy, this doesn't look like a pumpkin to me!

I love my mommy!

I'm tired of pumpkins, let's just eat leaves instead.

Okay, I'm done.

Mom of the year award

I'm pretty sure I won't win after giving my 16 month old a whole corndog for dinner followed by some of my cappuccino milkshake! Kaylee has followed in her mama's footsteps and loves fried food. My original plan was to cut up the corndog like you're suppose to so they don't choke on the hotdog, but she used her front teeth to tear at the whole thing so I just carefully watched instead. She ate every last bit including the crunchy goodness stuck to the stick...and without eating the stick! She loves to say "mmmmmm" when she likes something, but just recently she has started actually saying "YUM"...listen for it!

And yes, I realize this is another post about Kaylee eating. lol

Pa Pa Paparazzi!

My dear friend Beth (Beth Tilley Green Photography) was our paparazzi at the Farmer's Market the other day. :) It's pretty fun to have someone take your pictures for you!

First stop Zibbet, Next stop Hollywood!

Kayteedids is the featured seller on Zibbet this week!! My business has really taken off thanks to family and friends! I have another publicity piece in December with a company called LauncHER and I have a few other avenues I'm working on as well. Soon I'll have to hire an employee! Or a babysitter!

Even though Kaylee is pictured in a tutu that I made her, I won't be putting tutus in my store for the general public. But if you want a custom one made let me know! I can make any color(s), any length. They'd make perfect Christmas gifts! Email me for prices, it just depends on what you want. I also highly recommend Cutie Pa Tutus and Lelah's Shop for their custom tutus (and other fun things!!).

Silly Face Contest...don't you have those too?

We went to a new park today that didn't have swings, so we had to create our own fun. Kaylee has inherited my love for making silly faces and so we had a "silly face contest" with each other before our friends showed up to play. Here are a few of Kaylee's best:
Funny thing about this one is that I make this exact same
face quite often! I was just complaining to John the other night that
I really need to stop making this face because I'm getting
wrinkles on that side of my mouth! haha

And just some regular pics

Does anyone read this blog besides Amy, Becky, Michelle and Michele (thanks by the way)? I'm feeling quite invisible lately. I can't get seem to get more followers on my Kayteedids facebook or twitter pages and no one seems to comment on my blog. I'm in a "delete all my social media" mood so if you really do follow this blog can you comment and let me know please? I'm petty sure you can comment anonymously without signing up for a blogger account. If not, someone tell me that please.

Piggy tails

Today we went to the hospital to visit our new friend Callie who was born yesterday. Callie is 1lb and 1" bigger than Kaylee was and I still cannot wrap my head around the idea that my baby was smaller than the little girl I held today! So tiny and precious!
(That's a Kayteedids bow and headband!!)

Afterwards Kaylee and I went to the cafeteria because they have a Chik-fil-A!! Kaylee had chocolate pudding for the first time and LOVED it, as is evident on her arms and face.

We opted for the booster seat tonight at Chili's which was a hit in Kaylee's opinion. She sat in it perfectly and it was fun to have her next to me in the booth. However, it gave her a new view of the restaurant vs. in a high chair where she is faced into the booth. So dinner took backstage to watching EVERY other child, waiter, waitress walk around the place. Also today she mastered the drinking from a straw ability. That also played into not eating dinner...she only wanted to practice her new skill.


Chicken Ranchero Soft Taco with extra chicken anyone?
Kaylee says "Yes please!!"

I let her eat all the chicken out of it first, then roll up the rest of it for a lettuce-sauce-cheese burrito. She finishes it completely and still wants more. Next time...a steak stuffed burrito. ;)

I ♥ tutus!

My newest addition to Kayteedids is custom tutus with a custom shirt or onesie. They aren't listed on my shop yet, but they will be eventually. As for now Kaylee is my model (as with everything!) and she makes a darn cute ladybug! This one isn't finished but I couldn't resist taking pictures today.

Another food post

I realize that I post about Kaylee eating a lot. I must admit that it is one of my most favorite activities of the day...watching her eat. She is absolutely hilarious. She talks a lot, she has amazing dexterity, and she loves food. Just the other night she put a green bean in her mouth and said very enthusiastically, "MMMMMMMMM" and then giggled. Her favorite things are cream cheese and spaghetti sauce. Not together, although I'm sure she'd eat it if they were mixed! She has become a connoisseur of mac 'n cheese. At home she's had "the blue box", Kraft, and Annie's Organic. And in the last 2 weeks she's tasted the mac 'n cheese at Red Robin, Smokey Bones, and Joe's Crabshack. Here are her ratings on a scale of 1-10 (10 being MMMMMMM):
Red Robin 10
Smokey Bones 9
Joe's 8
Kraft 5
Annies 4

This is at Joe's Crabshack for my birthday lunch. I took the picture before she devoured her broccoli too. Poor girl has followed in her mama's weirdness of eating each thing o the plate separately.

I have to say that Red Robin truly does have the most amazing mac 'n cheese I've ever tasted. Nothing fancy, nothing added, but there is some deliciousness happening there!

And we're learning to color!


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!
