She said “Da da” last night

I have never seen a prouder Max. He was so happy. What was even cuter was that she was holding his face and calling him that. She has been saying Mama-mama-mama for months now (although I think she thinks its something that I just respond to sometimes!), so Max was happy that she is saying his name now.

For dinner last night we went to Sushi Revolution. We had fun. KayLynn had Tofu, which is a new favorite food for her!

She crawled

KayLynn was at Granny's house and she made (did - performed??) three whole crawls. I missed it. Yep, horrible mother that I am, I was at work when the amazing feet (is that how you spell it?) happened. However, we are sure it is because of the carpet. SO, Sunday we are going to Granny Tam's and I am going to leave her onthe floor until she does it for me!!!

My girly girl!

Sunday evening at church I was standing in the Narthex with her. There was another little girl out there (a little younger than KayLynn) being held by her dad. Her dad brought her over and held her so KayLynn could talk to her. And what did my beautiful, feminine daughter do? She growled (loudly) at her. The other little girl just looked at her and smiled, but KayLynn kept growling!!

Is KayLynn ever un-happy?

The question I hear asked about KayLynn, more often than any other. Well, the answer is of course, but rarely! I have to say that the Lord has blessed us with a very happy girl. Even when she is sick (which she is right now) you can make her smile. One of our favorite tricks is to try to take pictures of her crying – works like a charm. I don’t think we have a single good picture of tears!

Today she could not keep food down, so she had a few baths. Here is her last one!!

It just breaks my heart to see her so uncomfortable. Even when she is smiling, she just looks so miserable...

This picture is especially for Granny Tam, who loves this hair-do the most!!

Most Complete Valentines Day/Week

You hear women complain that they wish their husband was more romantic, with getaways, and surprises. You hear other women complain that their husbands should be more spur of the moment with sweet gestures. Well, my husband wears every hat. For Valentines Day we had a trip to Seattle - overnight! It was such a fun little getaway. We had dinner at Anthony's on pier 66. However, before dinner Max surprised me with a shopping spree. I got new work pants (I needed them since I start working full time this week), Teal sweat pants (I have been wearing the same ones I wore through pregnancy), some tank tops and the black-zip-up-hoodie I have been wanting for a very long time. After dinner we played DDR and then went to see Coraline 3D. Fun Fun Fun...

The next morning we had coffee at Starbucks. We walked for hours, just the two of us, taking pictures, talking about our dreams and reliving old haunts. We had lunch at an amazing sushi place - I have been dreaming of sushi for months!! We finished off our trip by going to Lush and getting a couple bath bombs (my favorite thing to do in Seattle!).

I know, you are thinking, "What more could there be?" Well, let me tell you. Today when I got home from work (I now get off at 4:30, and have to leave for class at 5:30!), Max and the baby were at the table waiting for me with Dinner. After which, Max gave me a lavender oil full body massage. He said that now that I am working full time he wants me to love coming home (as if I didn't already!) Yes, I know, I have an amazing husband.

Anyway, here are some pictures!

Drinks at Anthony's
My drink matched my shirt - the real reason I ordered it!
Seattle at night. The Seattle I have never seen!
We took losts of dorky touristy pictures!
The sushi was beautiful, and tasty too.
We found this fun water fountain... It is one of the few modern art pieces I like.

An update

After all the sleep I got last night, I have the energy to write again!! But for Brenda's sake, I will put it in bullet format!!

~ We have slept TWO full nights. I am not counting my chickens yet, but even if it is just a fluke, its given us the rest we need to start again!

~ She likes to practice doing something (playing with a toy) and then look away and try again ~ Granny Tam first noticed this one.

~ Like a real girl, she talks all the time. Of course right now, her favorite sound is growling.

~ Amazing, glorious sleep!

~ She loves her puppies (large 65-70 pound dogs), and everyone elses for that matter! She likes to watch Zsa Zsa do tricks.

~ Did I mention the sleep??

~ She is still trying to crawl, but is not quite there yet. ALthough if she were on water, that swimming would work.

Anyway, sorry there are no picture updates, but Tristan is coming over today so I am sure I will have a few this afternoon!!

Spring is Here!!

Tuesday was such a beautiful day that we took the whole family (baby and dogs!!) to Wrights Park in Tacoma. We always enjoy our time there.

We brought a picnic

We went on the swings
