WEEK SEVENTEEN: Little musician

On Easter we went to my grandparents' house and my husband's aunt and uncle's house.  At both houses there were pianos and  Katelyn found her way to both.   She played what she felt was the music to her current favorite song, and she sang along too:   Yo ho ladies (really maties) aWAY, they'll be treasure and adventure toDAY, heave ho here we go together as a team, Jake and the neverland pirates and ME!  It was just so cute.  I wish I could just bottle up the moment forever!

WEEK SIXTEEN: Decorating eggs

I'm almost caught up!!
Week sixteen was right before Easter so we thought it would be fun to decorate Easter eggs.  When we were out grocery shopping the week before we found a pirate princess themed egg decorating kit.   We thought this was perfect because Katelyn LOVES pirates right now. She watches a show on Disney Junior on the weekends called Jake and the Neverland Pirates and she can't get enough!  She sings the songs and she loves Captain Hook and Mr. Smee ( or Mr. Snee as she likes to call him ). 
We had a great time decorating them with her and she was so proud of them when she was done!

I have fallen behind on my postings, so this is a couple weeks old but the picture was definitely taken at week fifteen!!   
This week I was thinking about the beautiful ringlet curls Katelyn has right now and how we still have not cut her hair and she is now 28 months old ( don't want those curls to go away ).   I tried to get a good picture of them but they were either blurry or barely in the picture since Katelyn has no desire to sit still for pictures.  This was the best I could do.   I really need to get a good picture because we are going to have to eventually at least get her a trim and I don't know how much longer these curls will last.

WEEK FOURTEEN: Spring has FINALLY arrived!

Katelyn is SOOOOOOO excited it is warm again!   We got to go outside a lot this past week and she could not be more thrilled!   I am right there with her :)

On a whim we were out shopping and decided to get Katelyn rain  boots.    They were on sale and looked cute and would be useful on rainy days or maybe even if I plant a veggie garden this year and Katelyn wants to help by playing in the dirt.  She loves them  and wears them at home any chance she gets.  She wants them on when we are cuddling under a blanket on the couch and she has even tried to get us to let her wear them to bed!!!!!!   She is going to be very sad when they don't fit her anymore, so  I hope they last a good long time : )  Or at least until she actually gets to wear them out in the rain!

WEEK TWELVE: Feeling Blah..

(So this post is a little late but I made sure the picture was still taken last week.  I had to use my husband's droid to take it so it's not quite what I really wanted, but it works!)
For week twelve Katelyn ended with what turned out to be an ear infection.  For 4 days her temp went up to almost 104 and then down and then up.   For 2 of those days my wonderful husband stayed home with her and the other 2 days were the weekend.   It is awful :(  Then me and my husband got sick too with what appear to be sinus infections.   It was a fun filled week twelve and that is why I feel so blah !!!

WEEK ELEVEN: Sock pukits (puppets)

Katelyn and I made sock puppets this week from a kit we got at Borders ( they are going out of business near me and having a great sale).  The kit was great, it had felt and googoo eyes ( another Katelyn pronunciation) pipe cleaners and of course socks!   We ended up making 4 -  a cow, pig, princess and bunny.   She loves them all and runs around pretending to be them.   I am so excited that she is getting old enough to make more crafts and enjoys doing it!  All my craft items that are taking up room, but I couldn't just throw out, are going to finally come in handy!!!!!
