Kayla has been sick for the past 3 days. Tonight, she finally went to bed without fussing. Last night, she was crying for what seemed like an hour, and we could do nothing to comfort her. Combination of teething, fever, and a cold do not go well together.

Hair cut

Kristin got a haircut today...a little shorter than we asked for, but I think it turned out ok. No more long 'cinderella pony tails'.

Krisitn cracks me up. Yesterday after school, she tells me "Me and Megan were fighting...she punched and kicked me. I punched and kicked her back. We were fighting.......We are step-sisters!"

These crazy sisters......Little Kayla is a feisty one. She is already learning to fight with Kristin and gets really angry when Kristin takes her toys. Last night, they were fighting over something, and Kayla started stomping her feet in anger. It was the cutest thing. I can only imagine all the fighting that will take place when Kayla gets older.

here's looking at you, kid....

Kayla is starting to say a lot more now. She knows how to say pumpkin in chinese...but it sounds nothing like how it's supposed to sound.

Mirror Mirror on the wall....

Who's the grumpiest of them all? Kayla is beginning to develop her personality. She can be so stubborn sometimes. We tried brushing her teeth (all 5 of them), and no matter what, she wouldn't open her mouth.

Pumkin Patch

We went to the local pumpkin patch yesterday with the 2 K's. This is the first time Kayla has ever seen so many pumpkins.

We met up with Kayla's future husband Nate.

And one of Kristin's boyfriends, Calvin.

Little Pumpkins.

I'm a Barbie girl

errr.....actually she thinks she's Cinderella. She runs around the house pretending she's Cinderella, with one shoe on, one shoe off, looking for her 'glass slipper'. Once in a while you can hear her say something about her prince, 'my special dress', my glass slipper, Anastasia, and Drizella.

Just peachy

Her bottom really does resemble a peach doesn't it? This is another one of Kayla’s favorite fruits.

Poor Kayla. She had a splinter in her big toe. Luckily I was able to get it out.

Kayla loves her Kiwi.

Animal Planet

Kristin is always bringing home these crafts from school. I'm so glad we enrolled her in preschool (except her getting sick all the time). She used to be so shy and clingy, now she's bossing other kids around.
In other news, we fired our nanny. She was good with Kayla, but was always coming in late and asking for time off almost every week. The final straw was her calling in last Sunday to tell us that she hurt her back falling off a chair.........and said she was taking a week off. We started looking for an alternative solution right after that. Luckily, Selina’s mom is flying in from Hong Kong to watch Kayla for a month while we look at day care providers.

Birth Day

Kristin is officially 4. When I brought her to school, she kept telling everyone it was her birthday. She also got to wear the 'Birthday Crown'.

1 more day

until Kristin turns 4. It's been a hectic year, with Kayla being thrown in the mix. I feel like this year went by way too fast, and we really didn't get to spend as much time as we'd like to with Kristin. We need a trip to Disneyland.
