Toy Room....

Devin is in the middle of converting
our closet under the stairs into
a toy room for the kiddos
(I love the sound of that!)....

(Before picture)

He has knocked down a wall to add more space

added a light

put up drywall

We bought magnetic and chalkboard paint
to paint a wall with-
just for fun!

*** *** *** ***

I can't wait for it to be done &
be able to put the toys in and play!

I'll take some after pictures to show off his hard work!

Expecting a New Bundle of Joy!

Kaylie is going to be a big sister in January!
We are VERY excited to add a new member into our family!
We will keep you posted, because I know you are all dying
to see pregnancy pictures and hear all about what is going on inside my belly!
Please join us in prayer for this blessing-
we are praying for a very happy and healthy baby!

Happy Father's Day!!!

Auntie spent some time with Kaylie

today and left dad a message

on the driveway for

him to see in the morning!


Thanks to my dear friend Jen

Kaylie has a new, fun playtoy!

It sat empty on our patio for a day and
everytime Kaylie saw it

she would point to it and go over wanting to play....

today she finally got to!!!

Look at her, she is so happy!

She played in it all morning!!

And...she only ate a mouthful of sand once!

Dirt = Dirty.....

When it is too quiet I know something is wrong....
Today I let the quiet go on too long
& this is what I found...

(Photos are in the middle of the mess,

she really got MUCH messier!)

She had a GREAT time playing in/with & eating dirt...
Whose child is she?...
I HATE dirt and being dirty.....

We have been doing a lot of re-organizing, cleaning and throwing away around here......
My biggest project was making our under the stairs closet into a play room for Kaylie.
I had to find a new home for all the 'stuff' we were storing in there....one thing was the swing.
I put it in K's room until I could figure out what to do with it,
and it has quickly become her FAVORITE toy.
She climbed into it all by herself, with Mr. Bear in hand, and swung for a long time!!!
It was adorable!!!!!

Seriously Looking For Advice-

Kaylie eats everything by palming a whole handful of food and SHOVING it ALL in her mouth. I didn't think anything of it, she has always eaten this way, until the doctor asked if she can use her pointer finger and thumb to eat. I had to answer, "I don't know" she pretty much shoves everything into her mouth.

Then a friend from church who works in the nursery with Kaylie made a comment about how she had never seen anyone eat cheerios quite like Kaylie does. She said most kids pick up their cheerios with two fingers, and Kaylie shoves them all her her mouth. That got me thinking that there is something wrong with how she eats and I might need to do some coaching with her on the proper way to eat. I know she can learn, so if I need to redirect her I can and will, I just don't know if it is that big of a deal.

I have very little to complain about in regards to food, she is a great eater, eating pretty much everything we put in front of her. I don't want to make a mountain out of a molehill, I just want to do what is best for her.....
