a sunny day!

Helping Daddy build the new railing on the deck!

She is too cute! I love the pic of her looking down at John. I was just wondering if you were going to end up redoing the rails so they were more "child-friendly". It's amazing the amount of things we would do differently after we have kids! New rails look great! I really liked the old one took though.

We loved the old one too. It's not necessarily to make the railing Kaylee-proof. We could have preserved the log look and done that. This is to make it "potential-buyer-proof". :)


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!
