A Disturbing Development

August 6, 2009

For the summer we are renting a furnished apartment, and part of the deal is that we have to keep a set of bunkbeds in the house. Up to now it hasn’t been a problem, since Kalyn has enjoyed playing around on the bottom bunk with no danger to herself. Today, though, her bedroom went from being the safest room in the house to the most dangerous. Luckily we are moving in a week, but I still don’t know what I’m going to do until then.

After climbing up she often says what sounds like, “I do, I do, I do.” She’s been able to climb ladders at the playground for a while, but just made the connection today about climbing up the bunk bed.

Kalyn Learning to Talk

Here’s a video showing a little bit of Kalyn’s developing language skills. It’s hard to get her to sit still long enough to do a video, as you can see.

An Official Announcement

August 2, 2009

We would like to announce that we are expecting number two! New baby is due, totally by accident, on February 13.  We probably will not be finding out the gender ahead of time, so it will be a surprise for everyone when new baby is born.

So far new baby appears to be healthy and growing.  I’ve had a lot of “morning” sickness (all-day sickness is more like it), which I didn’t have with Kalyn, but I haven’t been near as tired as I was with her.  I’m still tired, but not sleep all day tired like I was before. We are all excited for new baby’s arrival!

Learning to Talk

August 2, 2009

In the past few weeks Kalyn’s speech skills have really started to take off. Watching her learn to talk is so fascinating and fun, I wanted to share with you some of the words she has learned to say.

Dog, Bunny, Baby, Feet, Shoes (shoe-shoes),  More, Bye-bye, Nigh-night, Pig, Horsey, Elephant (efan or ewefan), Birdie, Fishy (ishy), Neigh, Moo, Sss (hiss, like a snake), Maa, Meow, Juice, Hi, Water (wa-wa), Thank You (dake you), Bath (baff), Flower (fow or fower), No, Tickle, Nose, Up, and probably some more I can’t remember.

I love seeing Kalyn learn to talk. She’s a great babbler and “talks” all the time, it’s only a matter of time until she’s chattering away!
