K is Fun

It has been a while since we have posted because of computer problems. Now I have the computer fixed but we are having to fight our internet connection to upload images. We cannot win with computers right now but at least we have our little rose. She keeps us smiling!

This is what happened when we had to move some car seats around and one ended up in the house. K was supposed to be getting ready for a bath. As you can see, she wanted to go for a ride instead.

She loves bath time. She can play in the bath for an hour and still not want out of it.
She is also learning to drive.

The past few weeks have been busy, but good. K has started "school" at a local mother's day out program that focuses more on learning than she has had before. It has been very good for her. Other than that she has been sick and we have been trying to make sure everything is in order if a hurricane comes our way. If the gulf coast gets hit, you may not see a post for a while depending on where the hurricane lands and how much damage is done.

Our Very First Haircut

Here is our before picture. K was so excited about getting her very first haircut. I know, I know. I have been putting it off, but I was afraid of losing those curls. We just wanted to get the baby hair trimmed.
Here we are in our chair. K let the lady pick her up and place her in the chair. She knows that she has to be really still while she is getting her haircut.
They even broke out the "pink" camo wrap. Talk about service:)

Here is the finished product. Doesn't look much different, but hopefully now her hair won't be as tangled. She even had hairspray put in her hair. She definitely loved that:) I have hair in an envelope ready to file away for those days when she is a high schooler and doesn't want mommy:(

Who Does She Take After???

I was looking through some pics this morning from this summer and found this one with K and C. I had to share it. This is at Papa and Momma G's back yard when K discovered how to work a pump squirt gun. She was on mission to squirt everyone in the family and you can see the determination.

Growing Up Too Fast

So mommy and K are both going to school this year. I start back on Monday with the students and K will be going to "school" at our church this year. She will still be at daycare on Fridays, but Monday through Thursday she will be at school. She is quite excited about it all. She has a Dora lunchbox and an Elmo backpack. We are really talking it up, but I know she will do great. She was already getting quite bored with mommy this summer.
Update time:
We went to the Children's Hospital on Wednesday and the doctor told us that everything looks great with her spine. She will be able to go another 6 months with just having to sleep in the brace at night. Big praise.
I also wanted to point out the fact that I am constantly reminded of how neat K really is. During her swim lessons, a young boy in her class was sitting with her on a bench. When I had gone through the whole "God made her that way" he gave me a revelation. He asked me if I knew that my daughter had 8 fingers! He had taken her little hand and counted her nubbins. I almost wanted to cry to realize that is was so matter-of-fact to him. He had 10 and she had 8 and that was cool:)
K is growing so quickly now. She is quirky and just an all around fun kid to be with. Her biggest things are now:
1. When we don't do something right away she says: "Silly mommy/daddy, my got forgot."
2. If she wants to put something off she wants a hug and kiss. She will even hug you through the phone. It is quite funny.
I am going to miss my little girl and I can't wait for the weekends:)

A GoodOne Week

Well Momma and Poppa G are heading home to Indiana tomorrow. They have taken K to the beach quite a bit this week and she has had a great time. I believe she is definitely a little beach bum now. I don't think she fully understands the concept of going home to Indiana, but she has definitely had fun with her Momma and Poppa G.
Here we are stylin' our Dora glasses. That is one cool chickie there.
Here Poppa G is having fun with K in the shooting water. Funny story. K was with Poppa G a few days ago in the morning and they went to Chic-fil-A. Momma G and I were shopping and my mom called us. She let us know that someone from church had called her and informed her that a strange man in a convertible had K. He wanted to know if mom knew anything about it. Makes me feel good to know that people are looking out for our little girl. We all had a good laugh with that one.
We have had jellyfish stings, topped down rides, and all around fun. It has been a pretty cool time. I am pretty sure Momma and Poppa G won't be able to stay gone long. K has that affect on people:)
