Lately I've been seeing glimpses of her 'babyness' slipping away. Her voice is changing, the things she says are changing, and her behavior is changing. She's GROWING UP!!! Yesterday she was outside with Kinsey and Braden pushing them in the swing for a LONG time, singing to them, and entertaining them. This is new...usually she is the one in the swing. She still has her 'moments'...but so do I! SIGH...my baby is growing up.

A couple weeks ago, Cailey decided she wanted to write a book. I was very interested in what it would be about but stayed back because I didn't want to influence her. She did it all from start to finish...you'll see that she was taught 'inventive spelling' in school (something that I am NOT a fan of!) It's such a great story! She had an idea in her head and stayed on topic the whole time! Her illustrations are cute too:). She shows everyone and can't wait to see their reactions!

Sheree (my friend and boss) invited us to her pool Friday and we had a great time! Cailey and Braden both made GREAT progress with their swimming! Cailey was swimming from me to the wall with no floats...she was SO proud of herself-and I was proud of her too! Braden was jumping off the side, (with no one catching him) putting his face in the water (a HUGE deal for him), and floating on his back. He did SO great and I was proud of him for trying new things! The kids had fun playing with Zackary and Elena too.

Jen's house so the kids were able to go on the slip n' slide again! Last time we helped Cailey was in school and didn't get to go...so she was really excited to discover it and spent the most time on the slip n' slide!! Kinsey once again used it for a water fountain and Braden found other toys to play with..he wasn't into the water this time!

The other day I turned around and saw this at my feet! Brian was taking a bunch of stuff upstairs and his normal mode of transportation for Kinsey (the laundry basket) was full...so this is what he brought her up in:)!!! Just kidding..he didn't ACTUALLY carry her up like this, but she looks awfully cute posing for the pictures!

My kids LOVE to play teacher and use a pointer while they are singing songs. I bought some foam letters and had the kids make letter lines (in place of the number line). It's good for ABC order, one to one correspondence, and a great way for Kinsey to learn her letters. They are having so much fun using the pointer and 'teaching' Kinsey.
