Yep, lesson learned!

So Kylie definitely learned her lesson. Getting hurt = popsicle. Today she bumped her nose on her crib and said, "I hit my nose. I get popsicle." Later, she bumped up against the coffee table and said, "I hurt my body. I get popsicle." I finally caved and gave her one, thus verifying in her mind that getting hurt = popsicle.

Fell off Chair

Today Kylie fell off her rocking chair and bit her tongue. It was really bleeding a lot so I gave her a popsicle. She quit crying after awhile and said, "I fell off my chair, and got a popsicle!" What a lesson in cause and effect. Hopefully she will not think that getting hurt is a good way to earn a popsicle in the future!

Kylie is an Optimist

This morning, I burned the pancakes on one side. Kylie looked at it excitedly and said, "Oh! It got chocolate on it!"

At school the other day, they were doing artwork with handprints. Kylie said, "Addie got a beautiful handprint and I got a beautiful handprint!"

Sweet girl

I asked Kylie, "Are you a big girl?" She said, "No." I said, "Are you a little girl?" She said, "No. I a sweet girl. I a ballerina!"

This morning, she looked up at the sky and said, "Birds up there. Amazing."

Baby Shower

Tonight we're having a baby shower for Geri and Mike! Aunt Jan whispered to Kylie at lunch that she had a present for her. When we got home, Kylie started ripping into the baby shower gifts, thinking they were all hers. Woops.

I have discovered that Kylie follows a timer very well! I set a timer at night and tell her that we will read until the timer goes off. Every few pages, she points at the timer and says, "When dat rings, I go to bed." When it does ring, she jumps up and climbs up the side of her crib. Not another peep! What a grand discovery!

We played a matching game today and she was able to match 21 pairs of like items that were all scattered about. She also has recently identified an "octagon." We are working on hexagon and pentagon.

Chocolate Raisin Meltdown

Today we were in Target getting some needed items. I promised Kylie a "treat" if she behaved. Of course, she demanded, "chocolate raisins." I gave her some midway through our shopping trip since she was being good. She proceeded to have a meltdown. When we reached the cashier, I gave the cashier the chocolate raisins and told Kylie she couldn't have them since she was having a fit. About an hour later, I heard from the backseat: "I want chocolate raisins, but mommy gave them away...."

I asked her later if she would like to go to McDonalds. She said, "Excited! Excited!"

Running on Treadmill

Kylie enjoys running on the treadmill! She even spins while running. She's very talented.

Beluga Whale

On our way into the Aquarium, Kylie held her hand up to traffic and said, "Stop, cars! Don't squish us! We got friends!"

GA Aquarium

Giving a "high five" to the diver! When Kylie first realized there was a person in there staring at her, she jumped so high! Hilarious!

We're walking through the large tank here. Lots of huge fish swimming overhead!

This is the Kindergym near our house. It has all sorts of toys, but all Kylie wants to do is circle the track!

Kylie at Super Nana's Christmas Party!

Let's Learn About Stars!

Don't Eat Me!

Funny Stuff

My mom was rocking Kylie the other day and singing to her. Kylie made her repeat the song (Bye Baby Bunting) until she finally learned it. Once learned, Kylie sang it...then told Granna, "Get off me!" Later, when mom tried to put her in the pack 'n play for nap, Kylie told her, "I don't want to sleep in the box!"

Kylie was drawing today on a coffee filter. She said, "Color path to the right. Color path to the left. Color path in circle." I don't think she knows the difference between right and left yet, but she does like to yell from the back seat while I'm driving, "Turn right! Turn left! I want to drive!"

We're starting an "ocean" theme this week and will be going to the GA Aquarium in Atlanta this weekend. We've made a shark, a fish collage and a coffee filter jellyfish so far. When I hung up her art, Kylie peeled the fish collage apart and put the fish in the shark's mouth. She said, "Don't eat me! Don't eat me!" She wanted me to glue the little fish into the shark's mouth. She is obsessed right now with me drawing a shark and then drawing little fish getting eaten by it. Is this normal???
