All About Kylie...

How cute is she??!!! And look at those blue eyes popping out... she got that from Daddy!
So this post is, as you can guess, all about Kylie. I have got to hand it to her, she's been so great lately. Do I dare say that she's out of the "terrible two's/worse three's" stage, and we're in four's happyland of listening and helping??? Well, I just won't say it too loud because she still is quite opinionated but I don't think that's due to her age, I think it's just her personality (NO CLUE who she got that from!).
And she's kinda been pushed aside lately. With Kacey falling off the slide and gauging her head open, then fracturing her wrist and getting a cast, and now with a teething/allergy/runny nose/fever in the 104's all Friday and weekend (as you can see below, Kacey just looks a little off)... Kylie's not been on the forefront of attention, and she's been really good about it. She's been running errands around the house for me, getting Kacey's medicine out, wiping Kacey's nose, taking off and putting on Kacey's shoes, etc... just listening really well. She's even been letting me curl her hair under in the mornings and she's not fighting me about washing her hands throughout the day. (my kid probably has cleaner hands than a doctor, although they're a little red from being so dry)

So today, I got her a little surprise for being such a good girl and happy little helper. A small silver necklace with heart charm and a purple K on it. She loves it, she was so happy. But she knows we only wear it to church and special occasions.... she thought it was the coolest thing to get a present for no reason, and as I was explaining to her why she was getting it and what a good girl she was, I could tell she wasn't paying one bit of attention to me and was just fixated on what I was hiding in my hands for her. :) Then Kacey pointed to her neck and said, "necklace" like where's mine... (yes, my 20-month old even points to things and says diamonds... Matthew wonders what I teach them during the day).

Wow! I love the idea of the necklace! I remember cherishing necklaces like that when I was little!

I was going to find out the sex today, but my dr. was too busy, so she just checked my belly and ran out the door!!!!

*TEARS*
