Conquering the Swings

This weekend we took KK to the park. She loves the park. She loves the slide, but has been hung up about the swing for some reason. So we held her and let her watch other kids do it. She seemed to grasp that it wasn't that scary. So she sat with mommy first and really liked it, then flew solo. Here are some photos from her conquering session. She is so lovely.

Last year Kaiah was pretty comfortable sitting with Ole Saint Nick, but this year her stranger anxiety kicked in. I had a feeling that might happen. We figured why fight it. Take her for how she is. Why try to create smiles where they don't exist. So here is Santa trip in 2010. Pretty hilarious.

Shannon continues her streak of dressing up the little one in her festive outfits. Again she made them all by hand. We of course got into the act this year. Kaiah was a little reluctant at first but she usually gets into the mood eventually.

And here is a picture from last Thanksgiving. It truly is amazing how fast they grow. We have so much gratitude for our many blessings.

We had so much fun this weekend with Kaiah. She is hilarious. Saturday night we went to the church function called "Trunk or Treat." People decorate their cars in the parking lot and handout candy. Safe alternative for some parents. She really liked that. She wasn't quite grasping the idea of Trick or Treating, but she did like that she was getting candy.

Then last night we took her out to a nice neighborhood in Pasadena (by the Rose Bowl), just so she could get the feel for going door to door (or so Shannon and I could get some good candy). We only went to two houses and she totally grasped the concept. She knocked softly on the door, people would get low showing her the candy bowl and she would grab two large handfuls of candy. She'd drop them in the bag and head off. She really knew the drill! She's hilarious. I think she really enjoyed her costume. She usually doesn't like things on her head, but she liked wearing the lambs hoody. Love that kid!

I can't believe how fast time flies. Here is a pic of us at a pumpkin patch last Halloween. She could barely do anything. Now she is flying around the house, talking and laughing.

I will be sure to post the wonderful costumes that Shannon puts her in this year.

4th of July

It was Kaiah's first 4th and we spent it with our family at Bolsa Chica State Beach. Here is our Baby Liberty in action!

Today was the first Father's Day for Kaiah and I. She gave me a special imprint of her hand. It was beautiful. And as a special gift she said her first word (aside from Dad-da and Mama)! Here is the video of her first word and also her photo for Father's Day. Amazing to see how quick they express themselves!
