karaskitchen How does this happen?!? We all swear we'll never be "that" gushing parent but dang, I think this kid is one of the best (most of the time). I also kind of take credit for his huge smile and infectious laugh (along with tons of other not so brag-worthy traits). 2w

karaskitchen Love this bug who spent the morning wow-ing the physical and speech therapists with everything except for her actual speaking. Grateful to be in good hands on our way to grooming a chatterbox who will likely never stop talking. 2w
  •   bjfontes So cute!! 2w
  •   lisamf3 Pretty sure we've been in that same room. Go, Cahill! 2w
  •   akrempp Keep up the great work C and mommy! 2w
  •   allisonsapp Been in Cahill's situation... I still have my speech therapist videos - I like to watch them from time to time. Whatever they are doing in the lessons, do it at home everyday and she's bound to be talking in no time! 2w
  •   karaskitchen Oh really @lisamf3 ?! Hope things went well! 2w
  •   karaskitchen Thanks for the tips @allisonsapp !! 2w
  •   skippee Go C go! I know exactly the shoes you're in! Joy didn't talk for the longest time. Unlike C though she didn't wow the therapists...she baffled them with her crazy antics like throwing blocks and climbing on tables. 1w

karaskitchen You do what you gotta do to keep 'em busy during a long 4-year old check-up. Also: tummy! 3w

karaskitchen First big kid Lego experience... and just that quickly, he's obsessed. And now I need all the tips on how to keep the little sister out of them. (then I'll worry about not stepping on them) 4w
  •   youngtheamason Wow, did he build these himself ? 4w
  •   mfdconnell I want to come build with him! 4w
  •   sagelyklotz Come over! We'll talk! 4w
  •   pkgreiner Yup, my kids all are old enough now, but we restricted them to the bedroom as well (and now need to keep doing that because of the puppy)! I can show you how I made a cheap lego storage table that you are going to need before you know it 4w
  •   amerames5 Happy Birthday, Miller!!!! 4w
  •   karaskitchen Yes and yes please @pkgreiner ! So when G first started, he played with them by himself in his room? I just can't see M retreating to his room by himself at this point. Maybe he would if it was the only way he got to play with the Legos though. 4w
  •   karaskitchen Thanks @amerames5 - can't believe the boys are 4!!! 4w
  •   pkgreiner No we just kept them in Tupperware containers till we had too many and probably played wherever we wanted. The little boys didn't really put them in their mouths if I recall, and now they all play in their rooms with them. 4w

karaskitchen I'm pretty sure his look says "we love neighbors who rent jump houses!!" And momma is thinking "... and the weather to enjoy them!" 2mon

karaskitchen Batman forever. He would be making silly faces, attempting scooter tricks and wearing this (one and only) Batman shirt for the rest of his life (if it were up to him). 2mon

karaskitchen Had quite the chat with the Big Man while flying through His gorgeous sky tonight. I sure don't understand some things in this life of ours but I cling to the fact that through it all, He loves us more than I can possibly fathom. 2mon

karaskitchen Okay Valentines Day, you might just be my favorite if you can keep producing things like this. (aka the first "real" card from our big guy) 3mon

karaskitchen Oh dear. She insisted on the shades and spent the first few moments of the drive checking herself out in her mirror. 😎 3mon

karaskitchen This new little ritual of theirs pretty much does me in. We walk in the door and she plops down on the doormat while he proceeds to help remove her shoes. It's one of the only times either of them have endless patience. 3mon

karaskitchen Today was not what most people would consider remarkable but it was a huge improvement over here. We are on our way to where we left off at the end of the summer! 3mon
  •   elizkilgallin If you need an instructor this summer I'm in 3mon
  •   alfoxvt He did great! Next week will be a breakthrough performance for sure! 3mon
  •   akrempp Great news! 3mon
  •   pkgreiner Great! I too am familiar with the winter swim regression... Go Miller!! 3mon
  •   karaskitchen You may wish you hadn't offered @elizkilgallin 3mon
  •   debrapix Summer swim is magical! 🔆 3mon
  •   skippee Yay~ glad to hear it got better!! 3mon

karaskitchen Finding stud(ies) as he called them. You'd think with all of this help, we would have finished our to-do list long ago. (bonus evidence of the only way she will allow any clips/bows in her hair - as a ragamuffin ponytail) 3mon

karaskitchen One very happy camper testing out his new hat (prior to another mostly unsuccessful swim lesson). 4mon
  •   alfoxvt I see those wings flapping! 4mon
  •   alovelylittlelife Love it! We gave up on swim lessons last year because he cried the entire first lesson. We'll do it this spring though! 4mon
  •   ckstevenson Added bonuses of this picture is his crossed legs and how he has his hands. Very him. And then him watching his hat in the reflection of the oven tonight. 3mon
  •   carriebopeep He is soooo cute. That grin! Also....that doormat! 3mon
  •   momatthebeach Sweetness 3mon
  •   skippee Looks like a baby here~ adorable! Hope the swim lessons get easier! It was so hard for us in the beginning too. Lots of tears! 3mon
  •   karaskitchen I love when they still look little @skippee ! The frustrating thing about his swim is that he had done amazingly this summer - swimming by himself and underwater, etc but now he's just being stubborn. I know he can do it if he would get over himself. Ha 3mon
  •   tammyd2l Adorable 3mon
