I realized I had several pictures on my phone of Katie Wynn that I haven't posted anywhere yet, so here they are! This blog is about as close to a scrapbook as she'll ever get to "flip through" so I like including everything here.
Every afternoon when she gets home from daycare, first thing on the to-do list is to get a snack. Girl gets hungry! On this particular day, I was snapping pictures because her outfit was cracking me up. Her slightly too big colorful t-shirt with her skinny leggings made her look like she was headed to a jazzercise class. All that was missing was a pair of leg warmers and a scrunchie to tie onto her shirt tail.
Mimi purchased some new yard tools in KW's size so she can start pulling her weight around the yard.
Below on the left is at the doctor for her 18 month check-up (one month late, oops). She was too big for my shrinking lap but not quite brave enough to sit in a chair of her own. On the right is a couple days later when she learned how to completely undo all the snaps on her outfit! I bought three of these rompers so it may be a nude summer around our house.
These two were taken one Sunday after church. She has on a dress that I wore when I was her age! (Dress made by Mimi, of course.)
One Sunday afternoon we were invited to a playground birthday party. My shy girl clung to me for the first hour and forty-five minutes and then she finally got brave enough to not only venture over to the playground equipment, but to go down the slide by herself for the first time ever! And then she did it like 45 more times. She was so pleased with herself, and her mama was pleased too because hopefully this means I don't have to go down the slide as often anymore!
Matt had tonsillitis a couple weeks ago and got in bed early one evening. His bedside nurse was a big help with taking his temperature!
On the Friday before Mother's Day, I was invited to Muffins with Mom at daycare. Like most mornings when Katie Wynn helps me get ready, the day started off with lots of lotion. I wish the picture on the left had turned out better; what you can't see is the massive amounts of lotion on her legs and on the bottle of lotion itself. It's safe to say I go through lotion much more quickly these days. On the right is a picture of us enjoying our muffins. I promise she was happier than she looks to have me there. :)
When the actual Mother's Day rolled around, my little sweet pea showed up with breakfast in bed for me (with some help from her Daddy). She and I both got to enjoy a plate of chocolate chip pancakes.
We have a friend who recently had to have an emergency appendectomy, so we sent our well wishes. :)
Below on the left is evidence of Katie Wynn's first dabble in makeup. She got a hold of some eye shadow and applied it like lip gloss. On the right, I had just finished blowing up her inflatable pool and she hopped right in. No water necessary!
First trip to Steak 'n Shake = big occasion! I have always been a huge fan of Steak 'n Shake, especially in my college days, but we don't get to go often since it's so far away. They have the kid entertainment down pat with hats, cars, and colors! KW loved the tiny french fries and I would say that she loved the chocolate milkshake but I forgot to share with her. :)
I just don't think I will ever tire of sleeping pictures, especially when they're all pink. Now that the terrible twos have arrived, these moments just seem even sweeter.
Summertime swimming! We are big time now with a pool in our backyard. Poor Katie Wynn doesn't quite have "summer" figured out yet, as she was very hesitant to get in the pool and refused the popsicle I tried to give her. We'll definitely be working on that soon. Oh, and she didn't want her swimsuit on so that had to come off. I'm telling ya, it's definitely going to be a nude summer around here.
Like I said, I just can't stop with the sleeping pics. She is so her daddy with her head tucked under her pillow! This was taken at 8:40 on a Sunday morning. I didn't know what to do with her still asleep!
When she finally woke up, I treated her to a chocolate glazed donut. I think this was another first. She was so gentle with it; can't mess up that chocolate goodness!
Ok, that gets me pretty caught up on phone pics. I finally have some nursery projects to share so pics of those coming soon!
