Two Days, One Post

So your mom completely spaced out on putting up a post yesterday.  Oops!  And almost flaked out on doing one tonight to catch-up, but then Daddy reminded her to do it!

Sunday.  We filled up the pool that we bought you guys for the backyard and you spent some time outside splashing around.  You were pretty darn tired in the early afternoon, and quite a bit cranky in the pool before we headed out for a bit of a car ride.  At least you got a little bit of a nap while we drove around.

That's about all for Sunday (and here's the picture!):

Onto today!  We had a lunch date all set up with some of Mommy's former co-workers.  You had a few bits of mac n cheese, but was pretty content to play on the iPad that we'd brought with us.  No nap for you today, even in the car on the way back...sort of hoped that the timing would have been good on that one!

After we got back home, you watched a little TV and then the boys wanted to go outside again to jump in the pool.  You weren't too happy when Jared kept splashing you (as evidenced by the shrieks every few minutes).  A few computer games later, a little snack here and there for dinner and it was bedtime!  Tomorrow is daycare!

Happy Saturday!  We (your dad and I) got up this morning to find you had scattered crunched up corn chips on the living room floor.  Very entertaining.

I'll spare the details of the super fun clean up and the time it took for us to get out of the house to run errands at Target.  On the agenda...swim suits!  We got you a REAL swimsuit (one without the diaper, essentially).  Most of the swimsuits for kids nowadays come with the shirts that offer a little sun protection.  It's still pretty cute though.

After Target, we hit up South Mountain in hopes that you'd nap..  You looked pretty tired when we headed up, but you were quite chatty (singing songs to yourself and talking non-stop).  Of course, you fall asleep when we're about 10 minutes from home, so we stopped at the grocery store really quickly and just let you nap a little in the car.  I think you were ready for bed early again tonight.

Anyway, that's our Saturday!  Usually the week days tend to be a bit more eventful, but I guess we'll see what we can come up with to do tomorrow!

Kaitlyn's Turn!

I really HAVE been slacking when it comes to blog posting...for everyone!  I can't even begin to catch up since the last post, so we'll try to do that later, perhaps.

In any case, since the last post, you've gained another year and change under your belt, and you've been promoted to being a big sister!  You talk up a storm all the time, and you have been in your big girl bed for a while was a pretty seamless transition!  And the latest thing is being a little more successful at using the potty!

As for was pretty good.  No nap, so you were pretty tired earlier this evening.  You still do need your naps, and you get very whiney and emotional when you are tired.  You enjoyed playing outside off and on today, and really enjoyed playing on mommy's computer (playing YouTube videos!).

In the interest of time, I'll cut it off here...but if mommy's challenge is a success, we'll have another post tomorrow!  Happy Friday!!!
