Not a lot has happened since Christmas. We've had snow and ice which has kept Kaylee and I home most of that time. So we've had a lot of "stay in our pj's" days. We leave on Saturday for 8 days in Pennsylvania so I'll have far more to update after that trip. :)

We have a "rain chain" that comes off one end of the gutter into a bucket. This is what it looks like frozen! Pretty cool!!
Kaylee loves to be outside, and she was very sad that we weren't going out this day.
So we read books instead. She is a book worm! She "reads" as she turns the pages. Lots of gobbelty-gook, but I'm pretty sure she knows this book by heart.
And just because I haven't posted any pictures of Kaylee eating lately...
Popcorn shrimp Kisses!!
Being silly for the camera. She is a ham!

That's fantastic! You probably know this but that's "pre-reading"! We have that book. Except Taryn ripped out a few pages. She's getting better about being respectful with books.... *sigh*

Gorgeous pics of the ice (and of course, of Kaylee)! But I can't say I'm jealous!


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!
