Kaitlyn Pictures

I’m sure everyone is eagerly awaiting Kaitlyn’s Christmas photos.  Unfortunately, we’ve been really busy this week and haven’t had time to download the pictures and video.  In the meantime, here are the pictures of Kaitlyn that didn’t make the cut for the Christmas card…

Weekend Fun

Two posts in one day…  we’ve been busy!!!

Last weekend, one of the local candy stores, Len Libby’s, had their traditional holiday party.  They had hot chocolate and eggnog, make your own candy canes, and horse drawn carriage rides, all for FREE!  Kaitlyn loved the horses of course.  She did her little happy dance every time she saw them.

Yesterday, we went out to Portland House of Pizza for dinner.  We had a coupon for a free pizza.  then we headed over to the Civic Center for the Pirates game.  Kaitlyn does watch the players, but her favorite thing to watch is Crackers.  Crackers is one of the Pirates’ mascots.  He is  a bright green parrot.  Kaitlyn can spot him all the way across the arena (not that it’s a huge arena, but she definitely finds him before I do!) and she will point at him and watch him until he is out of sight.

This morning before Mass, the Knights of Columbus hosted a Breakfast with Santa in the Parish Center.  Santa says Kaitlyn has very good lungs!

Yes, the second I handed her over she dissolved into tears and the second she was back in my arms she was smiling and waving at him.  Of course she had a death grip on my shirt with her other hand, lest I hand her over again…


Kaitlyn had her first “school” pictures back in early October and we just got them back a few weeks ago…


One of her “teachers” told me a cute story that I thought I’d share with you all…

A few weeks ago, Miss Amy had just finished giving one of the younger baby’s his bottle.  She sat him on her lap and started patting Wyatt to burp him.  Kaitlyn watched all this from across the room.  Then she crawled over, stood up against Miss Amy’s leg and started patting Wyatt on the back too.   Apparently I have a little mother in the making as she likes to “help” me fold the laundry too.

Our big news, though, is Kaitlyn’s last day in Room 1 was Friday.  She is “graduating” and moving up to Room 2 with the older babies starting on Monday!   She’s been visiting Room 2 for a couple of hours a day for the past week to help ease the transition to the new room and teachers.  She does have some old friends in there that moved up before she did.  Either way, I think the move will be harder on me than her!
