First Haircut

Saturday the 1st, Dave, MawMaw and I took Kaitlynn to get her first haircut. We decided to go to The Hairy Elephant.
Getting her hair washed - MawMaw had to help
Kaitlynn didn't mind laying down on the table to get her hair washed, but was not comfortable with putting her head in the little dip in the sink. I'm sure it was a weird feeling and was a little uncomfortable.
After getting her hair washed, she got to pick out a movie. She chose a Barbie movie.

She did great while Jozie was cutting her hair
She was so excited about it

After the blow dry, Jozie put some kid's foaming mouse in her hair. Then Kaitlynn got to pick out which hair clips she wanted.
Jozie took Kaitlynn's picture for her First Haircut Certificate

We had dinner at Chris' Pancakes and then went to MawMaw's.



Kaitlynn continues to wear pull-ups for now. She did pee on the potty 2 times through out the day.

Dental Visit

Thursday July 30, I babysat Olivia. Kaitlynn had a dental appointment. The visit was for a cleaning. Kaitlynn was so excited to see the dentist. When they called her name, she headed for the door without me (and Olivia). She got to pick a toothbrush at the beginning of the appointment. She picked an Eeyore one (from Winnie the Pooh). She also got to choose what flavor toothpaste and cleaning gel she wanted. She chose strawberry. The hygenist brushed Kaitlynn's teeth, flossed them, cleaned them and then used a fluoride treatment. Kaitlynn was fine with the teethbrushing, but did not like the flossing. The dentist looked at Kaitlynn's teeth and said they were perfect. She asked about Kaitlynn's brushing habits and said to keep doing what we are doing. Then the hygenist brought Kaitlynn a crown and some stickers. Kaitlynn was so proud of herself. And mommy was so proud of Kaitlynn!

We called daddy to tell him how the appointment went. She had to talk to daddy and tell him that she was crying in the dentist's office (because she didn't like the flossing). When he didn't give her the sympathy she was looking for, she wanted to call MawMaw. She talked to MawMaw and then decided that she needed to call Neese and tell her, too. What a drama queen!!!

We went to MawMaw's to visit with MawMaw Tommie and Brayden (and of course MawMaw, too). Kaitlynn was treated to her favorite, McDonald's, for lunch. She stayed with MawMaw, while I took Olivia home.

When I came back, I changed Kaitlynn's clothes. She had a pink dress on that had butterflies on it. She said 5 butterflies, so MawMaw started counting them with her. Sure enough, Kaitlynn was right. There were 5 butterflies on her dress! We ran some errands and then went to dinner at Olive Garden.

Grant's Farm

Wednesday July 29th, Dave was in the bathroom with Kaitlynn. Kaitlynn was counting her stickers from going pee and poop on the potty (from the day before). She gave Dave a sticker and then said she had 4 stickers. Then asked for her 5th sticker back. Smart girl! She loves to count.

Kaitlynn, Dave, Olivia and I went to Grant's Farm. We had a good time. Kaitlynn wouldn't let us put Olivia in her stroller. She wanted her in the sling. Dave and I took turns carrying her because my back was hurting.

As we were leaving we asked Kaitlynn where she wanted to go for lunch and she said "Target". I don't know what she wanted to eat from Target, I guess popcorn and a smoothie. Then she decided she wanted McDonald's. That's her favorite place to eat lunch.

Later Kaitlynn and I went to MawMaw's. We went to see Great Grandma, Great Uncle Dale and Great Aunt Sue.

Kangaroo Kids with Friends

Tuesday July 28th, Kaitlynn and I met Eileen, Merci, Gabe, Emily and Ella at Kangaroo Kids. It was "weird" being there, kind of like old times (except in a new building). Gabe, Kaitlynn and Ella played at the train tables for a little bit, then decided to do their own thing. We went to lunch at McDonald's. We were hoping the kids could sit at this cute little table and chairs they have for the kids, but their was a birthday party there. I couldn't believe a birthday party on a Tuesday afternoon. Oh well!

Kaitlynn peed in the potty 5 times and pooped in the potty 1 time through out the day. Some days she likes the potty and other days, not so much.
