I think (hoping) she is going to have a darker complexion than Kylie. At least she does for right now, of course it could also be she still has some of her jaundice.
All in all she is right on track and she will have her next appointment in January.

Pike Plus is for 3-5 year olds that are able to swim the width of the pool independently with a floatation bubble while splashing his/her feet. The goal of this level is to have the child swimming confidently across the pool without a floatation device.
We are so happy for her, her biggest hurdle was being able to do the back float with a floatation board without getting upset. She can do this now.
We love you Kylie!

Kylie is trying to be as patient as she possibly can but its getting harder. Especially now that is has snowed and we told her that her baby would be born around Christmas time. When she saw the snow she was so excited she said:
"Daddy its snowing outside, you know what that means?"
"What does it mean?"
"It means my baby is comming soon!"
So now everyday she asks when her baby is comming. I we can do is say soon! Say a little prayer for me that everything goes smoothly.

There was one pretty funny moment today with Kylie. I had to go to the bathroom to give a urine sample and of course Kylie went into the bathroom with me. When we got inside she told me she had to go to so I told her to go. She looked at the basket of sample cups and proceeded to tell me, "Don't put that under my butt, this isn't my doctor." I promised I wouldn't and tried very hard to keep a straight face because she was serious.
I've actually made it farther with this baby than I did with Kylie. I will be exciting to see how long she hangs out before she makes her grand appearance.
My next appointment is next Monday.

"Daddy you know my baby sister has to have shots when she is in the hospital"
"Yep she does"
"Yes she has to have shots to she don't get the flea"
"So she don't get fleas?" (trying very hard not to laugh at her)
"No not fleas, THE FLEA"
"You mean The Flu" (Mommy)
"Yes, that's what I said the Flu"
Sometimes she just cracks us up. Its is just too funny how kids remember things that you tell them.

Then I took her to Toy 'R' Us for a Halloween parade. They followed Geoffry around the store stopping at 3 tables to get suprises and treats. Kylie doesn't really like charaters in costume but decided to be brave so I could get a picture of her with Geoffry:
After the parade at Toys 'R' Us we went to the mall where Kylie did more Trick or Treating and then she was ready to go home...and so was I!

Kylie and Daddy were having lots of fun swimming. Kylie has really taken to the water this year and loves every opportunity she gets to go swimming. Jumping in all by herself is her newest advancement, up until last month she would jump in but had to hold your hand when she did it. Now she thinks its really fun to jump in all by herself. It gives Daddy and Mommy a little bit of a heartattack each time but she loves it!

After the first bite and her deciding that kidney beans and chili are good, Greg said he could hardly keep her out of the chili until I got home. They did a great job, it tasted great and best of all I didn't have to make dinner!

I called the doctor after I got to work and was told I had to go to the hospital to be monitored for a couple of hours to make sure the baby was fine. I felt this was really not necessary because almost as soon as I fell I felt her move, I was told by the nurse it was NOT NEGOTIABLE. After I got to the hospital they put the monitors on me and after two hours they were satisfied she was fine and even told me by the way her heartbeat was charting she is a happy baby. That made me really happy to hear, hopefully she will be a happy baby when she is born!
All in all it was quite an eventful day.

Kylie do you want to go swimming with Mommy
At the same place you take your swimming lessons, so do you want to go?
Well, your kind of fat and you could sink.
Your right I am getting fat but I don't think I'll sink, do you want to go
Yes! Yayyyy (Jumping up and down) I'm going swimming, I'm going swimming!
As you can tell she absoulty loves going swimming and the fact that Mommy was willing to get in the water with her (something she has been asking for for months) really made her happy. We had a good time, she was a little upset when it was time to leave though. I guess an hour and a half isn't quite long enough. Although as soon as I told her we were going to go to McDonalds and eat and she could play that made everything better. All in all it was a very nice evening.

Kylie singing Shook Me All Night Long, not the best choice for a 4 year old to sing but she loves the song and of course has no idea what she is even singing. (Sorry the video is sideways, I always forget that when taking a video with your camera to not turn it - someday I'll remember.)
Here she is singing Row, Row, Your Boat with her Karaoke machine she got from Nana and Papa for Christmas.
And last but not least, Old MacDonald had a Farm. She obviously was tired of just sitting and singing and me videoing her. This is what she does on a typical day, play and sing, there are many days I pick her up from Daycare and she is playing by herself (doing a puzzle or something) and singing the whole time.

"Kylie you can't go to heaven now, I would miss you."
"Well Mommy I would miss you too but I would smile on you."
"But who would Mommy and Daddy hug and kiss on?"
"Fine, I'll stay" Said with the tone that says, I'm going to agree with you because I can see I'm not going to win this conversation.

"Mommy, Jesus said I could take one of the Bible books home with me after church"
"No, you need to leave them here "
"But Mommy Jesus said I could "
"I didn't hear him "
"You couldn't hear him because he told me when I was praying to him "
(How do you argue with that?!) "Well you need to leave them here so other people know what words to sing when they come to church."
After that I left it alone assuming that she understood what I was telling her. There were only 5-10 minutes left of church so I told her to pick up her toys she brought because Church was almost over. I helped her put her backpack on her back when we left. As I was taking her backpack off her when we got to the car I noticed how heavy the bag was. I asked her what was in her bag that was so heavy because I didn't remember it being that heavy when we came into church. That's when she told me, "Mommy, I told you Jesus said I could take one of the bible books home with me" I told her again we needed to leave them there so other people could sing praises to God when they came to church. She looked at me very innocently and said, "Well now we can sing Jesus songs at home!"
At that point I just left it alone because we were already at the car and I didn't want to go back in. I also figured she had such good intentions that we will just bring the hymnal back next week.

Playing on the playground
Petting the bunnies, that is her favorite part...all the animals!
Riding on the moo train. Both she and Carli (the little girl she was riding with) got out and said it was no fun because they had to hold on because it was bumpy :( It actually was quite funny to hear them both say it at the same time.

When they got up Kylie said, "Daddy your going to have to turn on the light, I'm a little afraid of the dark and I think there is monsters." Greg said she it in a very solmn tone.
She very afraid of the dark, she will not turn on the bathroom light because she is afraid to even reach her arm in to turn on the light. Or if she is in our half bath she won't go in because our bedroom is dark and she doesn't want to be able to see the dark room. The door to the room has to be shut or the light turned on in the bedroom for her to be satisfied. I believe this is a phase she is going through.

Here she is doing the backfloat. This is what has given her the most greif since she has started swimming. Here confidence level is the highest it has ever been since she started, we are so proud of her. I'm so glad I was able to catch this on video! Enjoy...

We had lots of fun making these cookies. However, Kylie did get upset with me a one point because I had to roll the dough into balls and then dip them in chocolate sprinkles. I decided that it would be easier if I did the rolling and she put the eyes on the spiders. When she asked if she could roll the balls I told her no and that Mommy would do this part and she could put the sprinkles on the balls and the eyes on. Apparently that was not the answer she wanted and very matter-of-factly said to me "I thought we were doing teamwork and working together! This is not teamwork if I can't roll the balls too!" I tried to tell her that sometime Mommies have to do some of the work themselves. She was happy to put on the M&M eyes, but decieded that after doing 9 spiders it was more fun to eat the M&Ms and told me I could do the rest myself.
You can get the recipe here.
