At her check up the doctor did a eye screen (vision check) and Kayla passed with flying colors! Her stats show that Kayla is a petite little girl. She will one day be the same size as Haley! They are getting closer to sharing clothes. I anticipate by this Summer they will be sharing some clothes.
Kayla is a very loving little girl! She gives us lots of hugs and kisses everyday. She also tells us frequently that she loves us as well as her sisters and her grandparents. She is a sweetheart. As loving as she is, she is also a 3 year old. I didn't really understand when people said that three year olds were worse than two year olds until Kayla turned 3. Oh my, she can be very stubborn, bossy and a smart mouth at times. She was not like this as much back in December. It has gotten worse the past month. I understand she is testing us and learning her independence, but it is exhausting! I am looking forward to the fabulous fours even though I really don't want to see my baby girl grow up so fast. I love that girl and she is such a blessing to our family. She is a great little sister to her big sisters.
Boy can Kayla talk! She talks a lot! That girl has a phenomenal vocabulary. She says things that I would not think a 3 year could say. She is saying new words everyday. She also says the funniest things. She makes everyone she meets smile and laugh. It's fun to listen to her talk as she is pretend playing. So cute!
Kayla loves playing with other kids. Whenever we go to the park, to church or on play dates she usually finds someone to play with. She is a friendly girl. She is so much like her daddy in regards to this. When he was a kid, he made lots of friends and he still easily makes friends to this day.
We are still fighting the potty training battle! I feel like I have been trying to potty train her for over a year now. She is just being very stubborn about it. I feel like I'm failing this battle sometimes. I probably have not been the most consistent due to staying busy with Rachel and Haley's therapies, appointments, etc, but she will go number 1 on the potty sometimes. Not number 2. She fights me about sitting on the potty in the morning (the only time I can be 100% consistent). I know she can do it and I'm sure she won't be a 4 year old in diapers, but I sure am ready for her to get this 100%. I really want at least one kid out of diapers in our house.
Kayla has been attending preschool for almost 4 months now and she is doing okay. She tends to get clingy and doesn't want to participate at first, but then she warms up to it after a little while. At this preschool I have to stay with her the whole hour and a half and because of that Kayla tends to have a hard time sometimes. I wish I could leave the room because Kayla does so much better at participating when I'm not there. I'm thankful for this preschool though and she is learning. Her teachers are nice and make it fun.
The things she loves right now:
- watching cartoons, especially Sofia the first
- anything princess
- dressing up in her play clothes or dresses
- playing, playing and more playing
- apples and applesauce (her favorite fruit)
- Her mommy and daddy
