Air conditioning

It is still too hot to be outside so we stay home mostly. The other day I was sewing in my craft room and Kaylee was playing in her room. I peeked in to check on her and found her nicely reading to herself. She loves to read, but what she loves even more than reading is hamming it up for the camera.

So I loaded up the rocking chair with more books and went back to sewing. She had been "reading aloud" earlier but soon her reading turned to giggles. I smiled as I listened to her laugh, and tried to picture which book I had given her that was so funny. So I went to find out....

Oops...notice there are no books in sight! She had quietly put them all on the floor, quietly opened the top two dresser drawers and proceeded to "clean out" every single item from the dresser. It's a task that has needed to be tackled since most of these clothes you see are from last winter! She was quite proud of her cleaning job and how could a mom be mad when you walk in to that face?!

Today all 3 of us braved the heat from the house to the truck, then the truck into the mall! We mostly just wandered around, but Starbucks is always a necessary stop. Cake pop anyone?

she has such a beautiful smile!


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!
