Kayman & Kayleigh playing in the pool

Here is a cute video of Kayman & Kayleigh playing while Kieran was at school today. I love it when Kayman pulls his sister down the slide. They are so funny together. I'm glad Kayleigh has someone to play with while Kieran is at school.

Kieran's First Day at Kindergarten!

August 24th, 2009 marked the beginning of Kieran's future adventures in School!
We were blessed with Ms. Ana & Ms Pat last year in Preschool. This year Kieran has a wonderful teacher, Mrs. Arce. Seems we have something going with teachers & A names!
Kieran has already met a little girl named Christina who looks a lot like her friend in South Carolina, Emi. She told me that only the boys were bad today in class. She thinks if her class is really good they win a popsicle party. She also told me that Mrs. Arce has a Treasure Chest full of Candy, and they only get it if they are really good!
She told me all of the rules today: keep your hands to yourself, raise your hand to speak, be quiet when someone is talking, & use walking feet in the class.
She did P.E. today and was surprised I knew what that was. She listened to a book about a racoon's first day at school. She told me they didn't have time for Math or Quiet time. They did get to go to the playground, and she told me all about eating lunch and having snack time. She was so cute this morning, she couldn't eat breakfast she was so excited!
Thank you Mrs. Arce for making it such a great first day for Kieran. She can't wait for tomorrow!

Ebay Baby!

Some pictures of Kayleigh modeling ebay clothing. Sales have really picked up for the month of August, as parents are getting ready for their kids to go back to school. The fairisle brown & jean outfit turned out so cute we decided to keep it! I found the jeans 3 months ago at one thrift store and the sweater on Wednesday, the whole outfit cost me $6! I think she looks so grown up!

Be Who You are

Kieran just told me that she heard a lady on the radio saying that you need to be who you are. So she said to me "Mommy you need to be who you are" I asked what she meant. She told me that no matter what your skin color is you need to be proud of who you are. She said just because I am a different skin color than her, Daddy, Kayleigh, and Kayman that I need to be proud of it. She said" You and Dana (our golden retriever) have the same skin color, so be proud!" Too funny, the dark one telling the white one to be proud of her color. I think she might have a lot to say as she gets older to dissolve prejudices! Thanks Kieran!

Today marked Kayman's 1st Tantrum. He's 15 months old and this is how it began. He was playing with the balloon you see in the video. He went to tackle it and it popped up and he hit the floor instead. He was upset and I went to console him. We hugged for a little bit, but then he squirmed around like he wanted to get down, only when I put him down he didn't want to. After holding and him pushing to get down I left him on the floor and that's where the video picks up. In total it lasted about 2 minutes till he discovered something better to do, and that was that. It's funny because I think the reason he was hiding is he was upset I was video taping him. Won't this be funny to play in about 10-15 years!

Laying over with Daddy!

Daddy had a 28 hour layover in Orlando yesterday so the 4 of us crashed his hotel room on International Drive. The girls got to sleep on a pull out sofa. They thought it was the coolest, good thing they don't weigh much as it would have been a long night for me!
We went swimming in the pool, walked around the hotel.
Went up and down the glass elevator.
And they all enjoyed their little sleep kits that came with ear plugs, spray, & best of all the eye patches.
Poor Daddy had to get up at 3:00am, but the hotel desk let us check out at 11:00am.

Kayman is getting better and better at walking. We are going to have his legs checked though as he seems to be not only pigeon toed but bow legged as well. I though the photo of him walking next to Daddy was so cute though. He looks like a mini Luis!

Here is the 3 of them in the pull out bed.

What a bunch of hams!

Happy Birthday Kayleigh!

Happy 3rd Birthday Kayleigh!

August 1st, 2009 marked 3 years for our little Kayleigh.
This photo perfectly depicts her personality!

She had a small Dora party with family. She was very excited about the Bitty Baby clothes Grandma & Grandpa sent her. Abuela got her an Ariel Doll, and a Fisher Price Cash Register & Dora DVD from Mommy, Daddy, Kieran, & Kayman!

We love you Kayleigh!
This is Kayleigh a week before her 3rd Birthday reciting the Bible Verse Kieran learned at LegoLand Adventure Week at our Church Fellowship Orlando. She did this all on her own just wanting to be like her big sister!
