Life with Roxy

The girls and I had a long Christmas break this year, and mine was even longer than theirs. We did a whole lot of nuthin', other than play with Roxy, which was perfect. I want to be able to remember some of the things from when she was little. In the past two weeks,

  • has started going to the door to let us know when she needs to go to the bathroom. Not consistently, but doing really well
  • sleeps in 2-3 hour increments--I took lots of naps over break
  • sits and watches TV
  • LOVES to bite
  • Is scared of the dishwasher, the vacuum cleaner, the hair dryer, Kaylin's tap shoes, and the dog behind us
  • has learned to climb up the stairs!
  • sometimes climbs under the deck, and can't get out
  • when she's down with her business, she sits down at our feet and looks up at us
The girls and I are in love with her...Bobby's verdict is still out.

Funny Kaylin-isms to start your 2013:

A couple days ago, she took a bath. She got out, wrapped the towel around her exactly like Bobby does after a shower, and said, "Look, I'm Daddy!"

We've been talking with her about saving her money vs. spending her money like hot cakes. Today, she said, "It's not my fault! I can't help it; I was born this way!"

We were in Justice today so Macy could use a birthday gift card. Kaylin was not happy that we weren't buying her anything. She said over and over, "This is not a safe environment for me" as she kept picking up things, and giving us puppy-dog eyes.

Happy 2013!!
