cucumber snack

The other day Caitlyn & I both had a nap.

When she woke up she came to wake me. After waking me she said, "Mama, I need cucumber." So we had a cucumber snack.

cuckle blanket

Caitlyn's been gradually cleaning the stuffed animals out of her bed. The last two nights, just before I leave her for the night, she'd handed me a stuffed animal & asked me to take it away "to the toybox". I, of course, have complied.

Two nights ago, she asked me to take her "cuckle blanket" (her little blankie) away. A little while later she started crying. Steffan went up & she asked for her cuckle blanket. He asked, "Well, where is it?" To which she responded, "Mama take it"

Last night she again asked me to take her blankie. Around 2:30am she started crying. I went in & handed her the blankie. She grabbed it, rolled onto her side and said, "thank you".

Spruce Meadows

I took Caitlyn to Spruce Meadows on Saturday & we watched the horse jumping. When the crowd started to clap for a clear round Caitlyn stood up, bowed & said, "Thank you, thank you."

da beach!

Yesterday, Caitlyn called me at work and let me know "goin' to da beach mama".

Now, she doesn't even know what the beach is, but she sure was excited! She ended up having a great day at the beach with her cousin, aunt & uncle. Lucky girl!

Itsy, bitsy

Last night, Caity was singing "Itsy, bitsy spider"

Stef: Does the spider have boots?
Caity: No, spider has a purse.
Stef: What's in the purse?
Caity: ummm... a ball & monies

let's jump!

Wednesday, Caity wanted me to jump with her in the backyard. I told her that the baby doesn't like to jump. She said, "That's okay, I take baby". She put her hand on my tummy, and then on hers, and said that she'd hold the baby so I could jump.

Good clapping!

Dad (my dad, Caitlyn's grandpa) built a balance beam in the backyard for Caitlyn last weekend.

When she got across it we all clapped. She bowed & said, "Thank you, thank you... good clapping guys" & then clapped for us.

Last night when I got home from work, we were talking about Caity's day. I asked her what was for supper & she said "asana". I asked her to repeat it several times, & was still totally baffled. So I asked her to show me. She took me down to the kitchen & proudly presented the lasagna.

my modest girl

Last weekend, we were at mom & dads and they had a kiddie pool. Caitlyn wanted to wear her swimsuit to go in, but wanted her jeans on. So, my very modest little girl went in the pool with jeans, a long sleeve shirt, and a cute pink swim suit over top. I guess there are worse problems than over-modesty!

Today Steffan & Caitlyn went to see Wes (Caitlyn's grandpa) at the office.
Wes introduced Caity to the receptionist, "Caitlyn, this is Jacqueline"
Caitlyn decided make introductions for Jacqueline, pointing to Wes, "This is my grandpa"
