Kaylen says the funniest things! And since I still don't know how to download pics to my mac, I thought I'd at least share some of the funny things she says.

I was running my fingers through her hair and she pulled her head away and said, "Don't touch my hair, mom! It's gorgeous!"

She also tells us, "I'm gorgeous!" anytime she is in trouble. I assume she thinks that means she should never get in trouble.

Every time she tells us about something she did, it always happened "last night". It doesn't matter if it actually happened 5 minutes ago, or 5 days ago.

She got a sucker out of the pantry when I had told her she couldn't have one and unwrapped it in front of me with a big smirk on her face. I took it away from her and told her that mommy had said no. She yelled at me, "No! You told me yes!!"

We were in the mall and she saw that they were setting up the place where Santa sits and she got really excited and started talking about Santa and Christmas. I asked her if she liked Santa and she told me, "Yes, I want to hold him!" Santa will be at our mall starting Saturday and I am so excited to take her! I think she will be the only one of my kids who will actually sit on his lap. My other three have always been a little terrified of jolly old St. Nick!!

She will bring a book to me and say, "Read to me, mom." So, I start reading and get through about 2 pages before she takes the book from me and says, "Now I read to you!" Then she moves her finger along the words and makes up her own story.

She thinks that any little kid is automatically her friend. It doesn't matter how old they are. Even 10-year-olds are her friend in her mind. She will go up to any kid and just start talking to them and ask them if they want to play with her. I think it's annoying to some of the older kids but I love that she has such an out-going personality! She will even see pictures of kids and tell me, "Mom, that's my friend!!"

We were in the car the other day and she wanted to listen to Taylor Swift. I didn't have the CD in the car so I told her that and she said, "Dang it!" So, we were just listening to the radio, and the introduction to Love Song came on and she gasped and said, "Taylor Swift!" I think it's amazing that she can already recognize songs like that!

I love Kaylen, she makes me laugh every day and I am so grateful she is a part of my family! I just have to say that I am in for it! The next 18 years are going to be a roller coaster ride with this one!
