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.
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!
