Shake & Bake

Last night when I walked in the door after work Caity said, "Shake & Bake - I help."

I'm thinking the girl's ready for commercials!

Crossing the street

On our walk the other day we came to a street and I asked her to hold my hand while we crossed. She shook her head, saying, "I fine, I safe, no hand." I told her that she might be safte, but I needed her to keep me safe. So she pulled me close & held my hand in both of hers and clung to me as we crossed the street. I was completely safe in her hands!

You are my sunshine, my only...

On our walk the other day, she looked at me and said, "I you sunshine". I wasn't sure what she meant, and then started singing, "I you sunshine, I make you happy, skies are grey"

A beautiful day

This morning when Caity came into our room she asked as she does every morning, "Papa, where are you?" This was followed by a search & finding him.

She then pronounced, "I'm going to check if it is nice outside" which she did and then pronounced the day beautiful. Who needs the weather channel or weather network? Not us!

Taking a break

While we were making muffins last week Caity was helping stir all of the ingredients together. After stirring for a couple minutes she told me, "Mama, rest a bit."
She then went and laid on the bottom stair... it is hard work making muffins!


This morning at about 6:30am we heard Caitlyn's door open, her pad across the hall, and gently open our bedroom door. Stef said, "Caity, go back to bed for a little bit. It's not time to get up yet." Caitlyn replied, "Alright, sure" and crawled back into bed for another half hour. How lovely!

A nice day

I took the little miss to Spruce Meadows on Saturday since it was such a lovely day.

Caity: It's a nice day!

Karmyn: Yes, it's beautiful.

Caity: No, not beautiful. A nice day.

Bath toys

Caity was in the bath the other night and decided that she was ready to get out. The rule is that before she can get out of the bathtub she needs to clean up all of her toys.

Caity: Mama, will you help me clean up the toys?
Karmyn: I'll help you if you help me.

She refused and sulked for a few minutes

Karmyn: Caity, are you ready to help me now?
Caity: I guess not

We sat awhile longer until she was ready to help put them away.

Rock muffins

Last week Caitlyn was helping me make chocolate chip muffins. As it was getting close to her bedtime I didn't want her eating any chocolate so I told her they were cocoa muffins. When we poured the chocolate chips into the batter I asked her if she knew what they were. She responded "mmmm... rocks" So, of course, they were rock muffins.

That's awesome!

This past weekend we went to the zoo with the little miss. We walked the entire zoo over 5 hours and thruout Caity found every puddle to walk thru, jump into, and stand in the middle of and stamp her feet. It was a good time!

We were about finished when she found another puddle that she stood at the edge of and then jumped in - both feet at once. It was much deeper than it looked and gave a fantastic splash. Her look of shock was quickly replaced by joy and she stated "that's awesome!" We, of course thought that was hilarious so she kept saying "that's awesome!" and would dissolve into giggles.

She's pretty awesome!

I can't like it

Last night we had chicken for dinner and Caity refused to eat it
Caity: I can't like the chicken Mama
Karmyn: Yes you can
Caity, shaking her head: I can't like the chicken

Some Pictures of the Princess

Cute as a button!

Karmyn: Caity, you are cute as a button!
Caity looks down at her shirt & seeing that there are no buttons replies, shaking her head: No buttons Mama.

Echo Echo

We painted Caity's room pink this past weekend.
Once the painting was all done she came in and said, "Oh pink! Beautiful!"
She then proceeded to start screaming "Echo! Echo! Echo!"
She will be so sad once we move some furniture in there...
