Back from Spokane (with tons of pictures)

We’re back! We had a great time. I can’t wait to go back.

Here’s a picture at the Las Vegas airport from the plane:

More from Kyrie

Last night Kyrie wasn’t listening to me and Rick said, “Kyrie, come here.” She responded, “I’m too busy.”

Well, she did come, and then Rick held her in his lap and told her that she needed to listen to Mommy. Kyrie furrowed her brows to create the sternest look she could, and put her hands on either side of Rick’s face. It took everything in him to not crack up in the middle of disciplining her.

This morning, she knelt on a pen lid and it created a little indent in the shape of a circle on her skin. She was looking at it and said, “What is this, Mommy? An owie? What is this?” She sounded quite concerned.

Cuteness…

Kyrie just grabbed some magnet letters and jumped in her bed. I was sorting things in her room, and she started saying, “buh ehh duh” over and over. I took a closer look, and she was sounding out the only three letters she had grabbed: B, E, and D.

Diaper Boy!

I decided to branch out and get some diaper covers for Antonio. I just place a trifolded prefold in these and fasten them. It helps space out how often I need to do diaper laundry. And I got covers in primary colors. I overall prefer my BumGenius pocket diapers (can’t beat them when it comes to absorbancy), but I really like the brighter colors with these covers. Oh, by the way, they’re Thirsties covers. If you cloth diaper and have been thinking about trying them, just FYI, they run REALLY big. I ordered smalls and Antonio will definitely be wearing these for a long time.

Speaking of miracles…

This is the first time I’ve seen snow in Louisiana since moving here.

I thought that since I didn’t go up to Spokane for Christmas this year, that this would be my first completely snowless winter. Guess not!

It’s a miracle!

Both kids are sleeping in the middle of the day! Woohoo!

In other news, Kyrie tried to trick me earlier. It was so funny. I’ve been having allergy issues or something—I’m not sure what it is—I’ve been congested for months now. But anyway, I asked Kyrie to get me some tissue, and she runs off to get it, then comes back, hiding it behind her back and pretending to look all sad and disappointed with her head hung low. Then she “surprises” me with the tissue and gets a giggle out of it. I love that her sense of humor is that complex! It really was the cutest thing.
