Strategy and more

Here's a funny story for you.
On New Year's Day, Kylie had been a bit whiny and tearful.
We all decided to go for a ride.
As I was loading Kylie into her carseat she exclaimed, "Momma, I'm crying".
Karen said, "I've got a surprise for you" and handed Kylie a lollipop.
Kylie smiled at me and said, "That was my strategy".
We cracked up.

The other night we were eating at a restaurant together and Kylie was playing with some of her princesses. She held two of them together. I asked her what they were doing and she replied, "They are hugging and kissing." Aahhhh......what an interesting life my daughter is going to have.

Kylie loves her "just add water" coloring books. She likes to paint them first thing in the morning while I'm making us breakfast. She usually brings a friend, like Curious George in this picture, to witness her painting expertise. She will whip through 3 or more pages in 15 minutes or so. I think she would color these pages all day if I'd let her.

Lastly, here is a sweet video of Kylie dancing in a circle soothing her baby doll. The song is "Mockingbird" by Melissa Errico.

I love the Disney princesses kissing! We just found out we are having a boy and that means I won't get to play with dolls! :(

Oh, my! She had you figured out in two short years... :)

Love the dolls kissing! Recently my best friends' daughter (with two moms) said to my daughter, "When we grow up, I'm going to marry you." I smiled knowing they could do so here if they choose. I hear DC is getting closer?

Loralou: Congrats!! and please don't worry about not being able to play with dolls with your son. All my son wanted for his birthday one year was a Disney Lilo doll. (and I proudly gave it to him). My 2 y/o son is currently running around the house with fairy wings and mardi gras necklaces asking if he is so pretty. Comical? Perhaps. Wrong? Absolutely not :)

BTW: my word verification is: ackisepr Fitting. :)

What a sweet video, so cute when she tells you the baby is sleeping.

She thought nothing about stopping by to play with some toys while rocking her baby to sleep :)
