WHAT did she just say?!?

As many of you know, living with a toddler is not without its funny and sometimes hilarious moments. One of the funniest things is hearing Kaleigh repeat words that we say, sometimes in context, sometimes not, but always cute. Or at least we used to think so...

We figured since Nathan and I keep the naughty words at a minimum (did I mention all the home improvements lately?) that we wouldn't have any problems in that area with Kaleigh saying those kinds of words. Well, we didn't take into account her pronunciation of seemingly harmless, everyday words. For instance - "sit". Well you can just imagine how that one could come out.

Most recently sitting down at dinner with my parents and sister, Kaleigh picked up her little fork that she eats with, looks at it, and says "fork". Only it didn't come out that way. She's not so good with the r's yet, you see. Needless to say, a few of us very mature individuals had to giggle a little bit. Well, this made Kaleigh want to say it again and again... By this time Nathan is getting on to us for laughing and I'm pretty sure my mom had stuff coming out of her nose. My dad down at the other end of the table from Kaleigh is just going "what did she say?" This really got us going! So, if my innocent little girl dines with you anytime soon don't be surprised at what you may think you hear.

"A father carries pictures where his money used to be." ~Author Unknown

In honor of Father's Day I wanted to post some pictures of Nathan with Kaleigh. I have to brag on him a little bit - he is such a great husband and dad. He helps so much with Kaleigh, even after a long day at work and enjoys playing with her, reading to her, teaching her and much more as you can see in the pictures. And Kaleigh just can't get enough of her daddy either. We know she won't remember much from this age, but she will look back and see the she was always loved and taken care of.

Scroll down for more pictures and some other new blogs if you haven't checked here lately.

These are some before & after pictures of our backyard. The brown is when we had tilled it all up into dirt preparing to plant our grass seed. The green is about two weeks later after the grass had started to grow. It still has some work to be done, but it is much better than when we started.

Kaleigh driving her new boat - at least SHE thinks it's hers. Her Poppa doesn't mind letting her think that either!
Eating was just too much for her!

While I was gone...
I know, I know, it's been almost 3 months since my last blog. I will try to do better, but for now, a little update on what we've been up to.
It's been all about the house lately. We finished our floors in the dining room and kitchen, have finally picked out a carpet for the LR (and maybe the whole house, that's another story). We got 2 new ceiling fans for the LR and a chandelier (sp?) for the dining room. And we tilled up the whole backyard one lovely Saturday and planted grass seed (which is doing really well on one half of the yard, the other is weeds). And I also planted a garden in the yard. I have tomatoes, squash and a few peppers.
It hasn't been all work though. We have celebrated my birthday, my mom's birthday, Nathan's mom's birthday, and my brother's birthday. We've gone out twice on Nathan's parents beautiful boat that the just got. We've also been to Wild River Country twice. I'm taking a cake decorating class so hopefully I will be able to make cakes for Kaleigh's birthday (& any future children).
