We haven't actually had very many hot days this summer (you will NOT hear me complain!), so when it reached the upper 90's this week, we blew up Caylee's pool and let her play in the backyard! We had so much fun watching her! She loves the slide, punching the turtle head, and sticking her face under the water! What a great day!
We had a little cookout a few weekends ago! We blew up a little pool from Dollar General and turned a sprinkler on! The kids loved it! While I was in the house getting a few things ready to go on the grill, Daddy let Caylee get in the pool without her swimsuit on! I thought it was too cute! For some reason I didn't take many pictures but here are a few I did manage to get!
Sometimes in the morning, after breakfast, if I am trying to get ready for work, I will turn on Caylee's favorite movie, close all the doors of the rooms Caylee can't go into to, and get ready in my bathroom while she kinda roams the house! She usually ends up in the bathroom with me, emptying out "her" drawer! However, this particular morning, I noticed she was being very quiet and hadn't mosied into the bathroom yet. I decided to check and see what she was doing! This is what I found!
I think she thought she was going to be in trouble! She kept saying "Uh, Oh"! When she figured out I didn't care if she was sitting in her baby's stroller, she thought she was so cool! She sat in that stroller for a good 30 minutes! I am putting this in my mind bank for the next time we need to figure out a way for her to be still and quiet for awhile!
We haven't taken professional pictures of Caylee in awhile, so my mom jumped at the idea on Easter Sunday! And boy am I glad she did! We have some cute stuff of her in her cute Easter dress Nams bought for her! Thanks Nams! We are so rich! Thank you, Lord!
Any of you that have ever had a 13 month old know how much time you spend chasing them around and how little time you have to update your blog! Ha! Caylee is doing so well! She is growing like a weed! She is into everything! She loves giving everything and everyone hugs while saying "Ohhhhhh"! She really has such a sweet little personality and a big heart! And she definately has her fair share of spunk! She is starting to talk, not so much words, but complete sentences! She will babble away and then all of a sudden say something just as clear as day! It is so funny to hear her say things like "I want down" and "I want that"! We are enjoying every minute with our sweet little girl! This is a hard blog for me to write though! The pictures make her look like a little girl and not a baby anymore! Hope everyone is doing great and we love you all!
We cannot believe Caylee is a year old! It doesn't seem real! We had her "big" party on Sunday afternoon, January 31, at my parents house in Petersburg! Because of all the snow, Ken and Jeanette didn't get to come in and neither did my brother Austin and his wife JoAnna! But, we had lots of friends that made the party! I made Caylee's cake, a three-tiered chocolate & strawberry cake with strawberry icing. As you can see from the pics, she LOVED it! She ate half of the top tier all by herself! Caylee gots lots of cute, cute clothes, and several babydolls! This year has been filled with so many blessings and fun times! We love our little girl so much and can't imagine our life without her! Thanks to everyone who participated in Caylee's birthday and made it such a fun day!
