Most of you know that two year olds can be big fans of negativity. As in the "No! I don't want to!" variety.
Since this negativity has become a frequent little pastime of mine, my mommy has been working to figure out a way around it.
I think she's succeeded.
This is the direction conversations go in our home several times each day:
I think that woman's got me figured out!

Here are some things you should know about me at the tender age of two:
I refer to myself as KK, Katelyn, Katelyn Moss, and (less frequently) Katelyn Elizabeth. It is anyone's guess which of the above names will come out of my mouth when someone asks for my name.
I love food and am a pretty brave eater...though I seem to lose some of that bravery when I'm away from home.
Every morning, the first words out of my mouth are, "I want to play." Another commonly spoken phrase of mine is, "Come play with me." That playing is fun stuff, I tell ya'!
According to me, the following activities qualify as play: putting on dress up clothes, kicking beachballs, caring for babydolls (mine are named Emma and Lola), chasing my puppies, using playdough, painting, drawing with markers, and doing anything that involves going outside.
I love to help Mommy clean. The broom, dustpan, and microfiber dust cloths are my dirt-fighting weapons of choice.
I look forward to going to see Miss Toni and my three little friends at her house every weekday!
My little potty gets used a couple of times a week, but that's about it. I think that thing is getting lonely...but I'm not making any immediate plans to remedy said loneliness.
Reading is still one of my favorite pastimes. Right now, I am really into Fancy Nancy, nursery rhymes, Pinkalicious, this little paperback, and my Bible.
My current dream time companions are a ladybug Pillow Pet, two Elmos, and the blanket that came with my crib set. Sometimes I ask Mommy and Daddy to kiss my Elmos goodnight when they are tucking me in.
While I still love Elmo, my new favorite TV show is Blue's Clues. Thanks to Netflix, I get to watch that cute little puppy with Daddy when he gets home from work.
Even though I prefer to be on the move, I am not too old to enjoy cuddling with my Mommy and Daddy. I think they really like that!

Late last Thursday, my brand new baby cousin entered our world. I had been eagerly awaiting the day that "Aunt Becky's baby come out"...and I think I was just as excited as the rest of the family to discover that the baby was a girl!
Here are a few pictures of my family's latest pride and joy, Sarah Leanne:
Sarah, my family is so excited that you are here! We love you tons and can't wait to meet you in person.

I turned two years old on Friday!
The day did not look like your average birthday (although it is hard to know what an average birthday looks like when you've only had two of them), but it sure was fun.
You see, my good friend, Karsyn, is exactly one year and one day younger than me. Our mommies decided that they would take turns having our birthday parties on our birthday weekend so that we can still celebrate together even though we live 5 hours apart. Karsyn got the birthday weekend this year since it was her first birthday. I'll get it next year. Maybe*.
So, this is what my birthday looked like: woke up in a hotel, spent the late morning traveling in my carseat, arrived at my family's destination 19 hours later than I should have (thank you trecherous, icy roads), promptly vomitted from carsickness (thanks again, icy roads), spent the afternoon playing with a good friend who lives 5 hours away, opened some presents, and ended the day by spending the night in the beautiful home of a stranger.
Nope, not your normal birthday. But still a whole lot of fun.
Unfortunately, my Mommy forgot to pack the camera for this exciting birthday filled weekend. So, until we can get copies of Karsyn's grandparents pictures, the only proof of my birthday fun is right here:
Even though we were in Lubbock to celebrate Karsyn's first birthday, "Aunt" Brandi was super thoughtful and set aside some official birthday time for me...complete with yummy pink strawberry cupcakes! That meant a lot to my family.
*The birthday-weekend-trade-off plan our mommies made now has a wonderful kink in it because my new baby cousin, Sarah Leanne, was born the day before my birthday! I'll make a separate post for that little cutie later.

Even though we were iced in on Tuesday, my family managed to brave the slick streets for a quick trip to Men's Wearhouse. Poppy and Daddy had already planned to head there to pick out a new suit, and at the last minute Mommy decided that she and I should join them.
Think that had anything to do with the fact that I was already a cranky, stir crazy toddler by 10:00 in the morning? I think so.
I made a bee line for the big tri-view mirror as soon as we stepped foot into the store. After a few minutes of spinning in circles and admiring my reflection, I noticed two metal rulers resting on the floor. Apparently, the MW staff uses these to help take measurements for alteration purposes.
I found a much better use for them, though. After a few adjustments, I proudly looked at Mommy and annouced, "I made a powerline!"
Pretty realistic, huh?
