Sand and Water Table

Kylie is loving this spring weather and her sand and water table!

Kylie's Birthday at the Park with Friends

On her birthday, Kylie enjoyed cupcakes at the park with her playgroup pals.

Monkey Joe's

I went to a concert on Tuesday night and got one of those paper bracelets. Kylie saw it the next morning and said accusingly, "You go to Monkey Joe's." As if I went without her. Ha!

Panic Button

Last night, mom and I arrived in Spartanburg with Kylie and started to get settled in. Suddenly, the house security alarm started going off. We ran downstairs and punched in the number. Was the house on fire??? Was someone breaking in downstairs?? It went off again...and again...and again. We went outside to sit in the car until the police came. Mom went back inside and the security company said it was coming from the panic button. The panic button that was still in Kylie's little hand!!!! She kept pressing the panic button every time mom would punch in the security code. What a booger!

She has discovered how to climb out of a regular crib. I've spent 2 hours trying to get her to stay in it and she kept climbing out. Finally she went down and said, "I got a BIG problem!"

Popsicle Saga Continues

Today Paul sat on something on the couch and said, "Ouch!" Kylie came up to him, patted his back and said, "It's okay. You feel better. Later, you ask for popsicle. You say please."

I've been making Kylie give me a kiss and then I give her a popsicle. She just came up to me and said, "Here's a kiss. Popsicle please."

I got Kylie a small green gingham chair today for her new "big girl room." She loves it! She immediately sat in it, kicked her feet over the edge and announced, "I love my new chair!!!" It was nap time later and she said, "Put the chair in the bed!" She wanted to sleep with it. She also insisted in sitting in it while I read her stories from my chair.

No Problem

Yesterday I put "big girl panties" on Kylie and we talked about keeping them dry. She said, "No problem." But of course, 20 minutes later they were wet. Oh well! We'll try again later!
