These are just a couple of funny pictures I cam across of Kaylee.  She likes to dress up in my clothes or shoes when she finds them.  Here she is sporting one of my sweatshirts that fell down in the closet.  Clothes on the floor become property of Kaylee!

Doesn’t she look like the cutest little Sith Lord you’ve ever seen?

At least I’m taller than someone in my family!  My sweatshirt goes all the way to her toes!


We went to the park one day to play frisbee with the girls!  They had never played before and were super excited about throwing things without getting in trouble 🙂

Here’s Kaylee attempting to kill the frisbee 🙂  She liked to play monkey in the middle the best!  She just had fun running as far as she could!  We will for sure have to get her in soccer or something as soon as she is old enough.  She really needs help each day to use up all of her energy 🙂

Here’s the whole crew!  If you look closely you can see Kaylee attempting a long distance throw!

Emmy was getting pretty good at throwing but especially at catching!  She was also very excited to be wearing a hat just like daddy and Grandpa!

Kaylee telling us what to do!  “Go long”

Emmy even practiced a few different types of toss!  She is going to be a great ultimate frisbee player!

Grandpa’s Roses

Every year when the roses bloom at my parents house the girls get a picture with Grandpa in front of them.   Here are this years pics!

Emmy insisted that her baby be in the pictures also!

Fun with Grandpa!  You can really see the roses in this one!  They are really pretty!

Kaylee loves playing in the grass at my parents house!  They have a much bigger lawn than we do so she can run and jump!

Grandpa and Grandma Layman in front of the roses!

Preschool Graduation

Emmy finished her first year of preschool in May!  She does preschool through the public schools, which is great because she can receive all of her special services during the school day.  Right now she goes to speech, Occupational Therapy, and physical therapy.  The hope is that with early intervention she wont have to pulled out of Kindergarten that much.  She will probably have to do PT for awhile though.  She had a great year and loved all of her teachers!  She is already excited for next year!

Here’s daddy and Emmy singing some songs with Emmy’s class!

Here Emmy realizes that the rest of her fan base has arrived!  Hi Emmy!

Kaylee loves going to Emeline’s class because she gets to play with all the big kids!

Emmy taught Kaylee all the fun things she could do on the playground!

Here’s Emmy going up to get her diploma!  Ms. Schembri gave her the “I can do it by myself” award!  Anyone that know Emmy, knows that is the perfect award for her!

Afterward the whole class got to go to the park and have otterpops!  YUM YUM!  Congratulations Emmy!  We are so proud of you!

Great Grandpa and Grandma Layman

Just before school ended we had a chance to go up to my Grandparents’ house!  My dad bought me and the girls plane tickets for mothers day so that my Grandpa could meet Kaylee!  My mom went with me to help with the girls and we all had a great trip!

Here is a pic of Grandpa meeting Kaylee!

Emmy had been to Oregon twice already so she kept telling Kaylee all the fun stuff they could do!

We finally convinced Kaylee to stand still for a picture!  Emmy and Kaylee are my Grandpa’s only great grandchildren so far!

Here’s a pic of all of us out in the yard!  Their driveway makes a loop and Kaylee had a great time running around it while Emmy would ride around it with Grandpa on his scooter!

This is their dog Pudge!  Kaylee and Emmy both loved her!  We just had to keep our eye on Kaylee so that she didn’t try to ride her like a horse! 🙂

One of the stores we went to had these car carts to ride in!  Emmy asked to go back everyday so that she could ride in the little car!

Beep beep!

Emmy and Grandma posed while I tested out my camera!  These pics came out really cute 🙂

Kaylee wants in on the picture action!

What a sweetheart!

Kaylee had to sleep in our pack n’ play and was very jealous that Emmy got to sleep in the big bed!  So every morning Kaylee would take a turn in the bed too!

The girls had so much fun while we were there that they needed a little break!  They were really excited that my grandparents had the Disney channel.  Somehow it is even more fun to watch Mickey Mouse away from home!

Kaylee gets done with her break and is ready to have some more fun!  Thanks Grandpa and Grandma for a great trip!  We are really glad we could come and visit!
