Things to Remember

Kaidrei has started saying some funny things, some sweet things, and some spunky things (for a lack of a better way to say it). I decided I wanted to record some of these things so I wouldn't forget.

A few months ago, we were walking out of a store and to the car. We were parked right by the sidewalk. I was carrying Malea as Kaidrei was walking with me. She didn't want to go to the car. I asked her to come, then told her I needed her to come with us. Just as two elderly gentlemen were passing us, I asked her to come with us (in a very stern voice). She looked and me and with a lot of sass and attitude she said "Nnnnnnnnnnnnooo!". The two gentlemen just smiled at me and said just wait until she is a teenager....I'm not sure I'm ready for that yet.

A few days ago at dinner, we had soda to drink. I had a small burp and before I could say excuse me, Kaidrei said "excuse you"! Brian and I both chuckled at this, because it surprised us so much.

Now a few from today....

This morning I asked Kaidrei if she wanted a cereal bar for breakfast and her response was "no thanks mom"!

We were going down the stairs and Kaidrei was carrying two sippy cups with her and wanted to do it all by herself. I said, "when did you get to be such a big girl?" Kaidrei's response "I didn't, I little!"

Malea had a fussy spell this afternoon and was just upset in general. I got her calmed down a little bit but she still wasn't settled. Kaidrei went over to her and gave her a hug and kiss and said "Malea, be happy." Then proceeded to play right there by her until she got Malea laughing and happy. I think these two are going to be best buds...well honestly they already are.

Kaidrei got her finger smashed in the freezer door. She was hurting and upset - the finger was all black and blue and swelling. She wanted Daddy, but he has been out of town. I knew he was where he could answer the phone so I asked her if she wanted to call and talk to Daddy. She just pointed out the window (it was about the time that Brian usually gets home from work) and said "No, Daddy hug". A phone call wasn't what she wanted, she wanted Daddy to be home and give her a big hug. She will be so excited in the morning when she wakes up and Daddy is home!

I can't believe how much she has progressed in her talking in the last few months. She really has only been talking more than a few words since December! We have actually decided to exit her out of the early intervention program so that the people who have been helping Kaidrei will be free to help another kiddo who needs it more than she does at this point. I am so grateful to live where there is a program like this available. It has helped Kaidrei (and me) so much.

And I guess I'm done for the night because Kaidrei is up and crying...Here is to hoping we get some sleep tonight.
