Posing for a Mothers Day 2010 picture.

Riding the big cat. No one was sure about this, especially the cat.

Kivrin and Mama practice our party pic pose!

Kivrin recently discovered oranges in a big way!

Kivrin climbed in the basket and just barely fit!

Kivrin and Daddy have a special system for helping with the laundry…..

“These dolls are all sleeping.”

“I put the dolls to bed in a row and covered them up.”

“Mama made me baby doll diapers and wipes and I am using them!”

“Look, these dolls are all sleeping too.”

“Finally a use for my crib. My dolls and I can snuggle together inside.”

“Although to be fair, we’d gone through the naptime routine when I¬† noticed her diaper.” — an email from Dan while I was working on Sunday. The miracles of modern technology mean that we can keep each other up to date and in the loop with cute toddler happenings and keep each other entertained on long weekend shifts at work too!

Mama and Kivrin took a wagon¬†adventure to the local park one Saturday afternoon while Daddy was at work. Kivrin climbed through the tunnel (with a little help from Mama pushing on her feet to get her up the incline each time) and then happily played on the swings for a LONG time. Luckily for Mama, Kivrin didn’t decide to “help” pull the wagon until we were within about 2 houses from our own — that is our front sidewalk in the photo!

A verbal snapshot of Kivrin’s life

  • Kivrin can count to ten! And she does. Frequently! 12 years ago
  • Later, no thank you, now, one more time, almost done, excuse me, please. All powerful words from the mouth of a toddler... 12 years ago
  • Kivrin is two years old today! Happy Birthday baby girl, we are so impressed and amazed by the person you are growing up to be! 12 years ago
  • Toddler logic: Blowing on the outside air on a sweltering day will cool it off enough that mommy will agree it's not too hot for a walk. 12 years ago
  • Toddler logic: Kivrin skinned her knee, therefore her baby doll needs a bandaid. 12 years ago
  • Kivrin switched from the terse "hi" on her play phone to a more elaborate "ay-yo" hello style greeting. Verbal skills increasing daily!!! 12 years ago
  • This morning Kivrin choked on a cracker and made a mess of her shirt/carseat on the way to school. She named the incident her "big cough." 12 years ago

  • March 14, 2009--St. Pat's Parade
    One Saturday while I was working, Aaron took the girls downtown to see the St. Patrick's Day Parade. They both seemed to enjoy it and have been playing with the beaded necklaces they received ever since. Addison loves looking at all the balloons!
