Kyla Talking On The Phone

Kyla loves to play to with my phone. No it isn't a smart phone. It is your standard flip phone.As in she will try and throw a fit/whine so I will let her play with my phone.

Typically I don't let her play with my phone and try to satisfy her with one of Jared's old phones that have been converted into play phones for the kiddos. Most of the time this doesn't work...the kid is just too stinkin' smart.

Well, one particular day she somehow got a hold of my phone and broke it in half. Needless to say I had to get a new phone.

So long story short, I ended up with one of the kiddos play phones as my new phone.

If Jared Willis is anything he is resourceful!!!!

Here are a few pictures of Kyla playing with my new phone while it was still a play phone. If you think it's confusing to you, try explaining to you 1yr. old that this is no longer a phone she can play with.

I think I have a call.


It's for you Mama.

Makenna @ 4 1/2

I decided that since I have recently updated about both Colin and Kyla I would do a quick update on Makenna too.

Here are a few things that stand out about Makenna @ 4 1/2 :

She loves to color.

She REALLY likes to play Sequence for Kids. She is also a fan of many other board games but this by far is her favorite.

She still lives in princess land. Although it has tamed down a bit.

She loves animals. She doesn't even discriminate. She likes to let bugs crawl on her hands and pick up worms. Inside I am thinking "that is gross" but outwardly I encourage her because really it isn't that gross and it even 'cool' (her word not mine) to Makenna.

Her vocabulary and word comprehension shocks me at times...in a good way. A few highlighted words in her vocabulary; familiar, particularly, precisely, and exactly.

She would rotate eating grilled cheese, pizza, or pb&j for every meal if I let her.
