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

She has such a beautiful smile! You still win the Mom of the Year award. Every little kid needs fun stuff as well as good healthy stuff. Unless you're feeding her corn dogs every night and never a veggie in sight, you're doing great, IMO. She is so sweet.

I heard it! Adorable! First words are the sweetest. ~emgray


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!
