Kinley is quite the handful, but she's my handful and my hands are big enough to handle it (most days anyway) So, with that being said, I would like to jot down a few things that she is doing at this age so I can look back years from now and be reminded of the things I've forgotten.
She loves to sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (instead of saying "How I wonder what you are, she says "I now wonder what you are)
She says the craziest things and has such an imagination. When she talks to me or anyone else for that matter, she talks like she's a cartoon character....like Dora! One day while riding in the car she turned and looked at Bailey and said, BAILEY, How many times do I have to tell ya...Leprechauns are just a figment of your IMAGINATION!!!! We still haven't figured out where that one came from.
A couple of days later, she started telling us about a Monster that lives in the woods and likes to eat SMORES and HIS name is Pinkfoot! I don't know where she is hearing this stuff.
She knows all her shapes and colors, can count to 25 in English and 10 in Spanish, Sings her ABC's, but she REFUSES to use the potty and when I say REFUSES...I mean she is very adamant about it and flat out says NO! I will not use the potty!! I'm not sure what's up with that!
Her favorite cartoons are: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Paw Patrol, Tom & Jerry, Team Umizoomi and Bubble Guppies.
Now for the pictures. We didn't have a party this year so I decorated the kitchen so that when she woke up, she would have something special waiting for her.
You see that Minnie Mouse there in the corner....well there's a story about that thing...I went to Party City to do a little birthday decoration shopping and when I saw this huge Minnie Mouse Balloon, I had to have it. I also had to get some things at Target and maybe a couple of other places and by the time I got to HEB to pick up her cake, Minnie's head had exploded from the heat. I was so UPSET, so I went into HEB to the floral/balloon dept. hoping they could patch her up for me, but they said they were not allowed to blow up balloons from other stores and the more I got to looking at it, the more I realized there was no patching this thing up. As I fought back my tears.....yes TEARS....I know silly right? I noticed a mickey mouse balloon already blown up and ready to go. I asked the lady behind the counter if she had any Minnie Mouse heads and she said No so I began thinking of ways I could make this work. I had to do something. I didn't want to throw a perfectly good Minnie Mouse body away. I grabbed the Mickey Mouse head, thought I will just draw on some eye lashes with a sharpie and proceeded to ask the sales lady if she could tape this Mickey Mouse head onto my Minnie Mouse Body. She agreed....because she knew I was obviously desperate and off I went with my Mickey/Minnie balloon. Kinley didn't even know the difference and was more than excited to have it.

Another year has passed and my Baby is growing up way too fast. She amazes me everyday and makes me Loud out Loud constantly. We love you Kin Kin!!!!
