I usually only blog about the "big" events (i.e. holidays, birthdays, travels), but lately I've realized that there are a bunch of little moments and special little things that I don't want to forget and I think this is the best place to write about them. So, I'm going to start posting them here for the sake of posterity. They may just be short little snippets or a random photograph of something that makes me smile today, but I know someday when we are far removed from this time in our lives, I will scroll through the blog and all of those little moments and things will make me smile again. This quote just about sums it up: "Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.” ~Robert Brault
So here is my first "I Never Want to Forget" post...
As with most toddlers, Kaitlyn has her own adorable way of saying certain words and it is the cutest! Here are some of the more recent Kaitlyn-isms.
Jonfin = Jonathan
Wawa/Watey=Water (she pretty much says water now, but Ron still likes her to call it watey)
Uppy = up (as in, pick me up)
Kiki = Kaitlyn (I'm not sure why she calls herself Kiki, but she has from the time she could first talk. And now we find ourselves calling her Kiki, too.)
Matoes = tomatoes
Princerella = She used to say Princesses correctly. Then we started to teach her their individual names (i.e., Cinderella). Since then they are all Princerella.
A doh-doh = We have no idea what this means, but she's been saying it for months. She usually says it when she walks up to another kid and it sounds like a question. Maybe it's some sort of secret kid-talk that we as parents aren't meant to understand.
As cute as she is when she talks, she's even more cute when she sings. Kaitlyn (Kiki) has recently developed a love for singing. She especially likes to sing in the car, but she has no shame and will bust out a verse of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" in the middle of the grocery store if the mood strikes her. Here's a video I put together of her singing a few of her favorites. I'll admit, the video is kind of lengthy (3 min 30 sec), but it was hard to edit it any further because if you ask me, every second was too precious to cut out. :)
