For those of you who have been following our blog for the past two years, we are glad you found us. For those of you who are new, welcome! You might notice the change in the name…..it’s not just Kitt and Garet anymore. Nope, there is going to be a third kid in the house! (If you’re curious about the name of the blog, click on the About Us tab.) Most of you saw the news on Facebook this week and the response was overwhelming. Thank you! We are all very excited about a new baby in the house. The due date is May 19, 2012 and we are hoping and praying for a healthy and FULL TERM pregnancy. Of course, we will keep you posted on the blog as to how that is going in addition to our already busy lives. This week Mommy went to her doctor and heard the baby’s heartbeat. She said it was really cool and will go again this coming week for an ultrasound. Now on to this week!
We were sad to see Granny, Poppy, Uncle Michael, Aunt Kristen and Uncle Mark leave after our birthday but GAMA got to stay for a few extra days. We had so much fun visiting with her and getting her all to ourselves. Unfortunately, she and Mommy both caught colds towards the beginning of the week. We went to storytime and music class and even tried out a new museum that Mommy thought we would like. We did not like it; however, we did really like the dinosaurs and much to Mommy’s pleasure, Garet walked around the next two days saying “dinosaur.” Ms. Joyce and AJ came over one day to make a movie of us wearing these special dresses and head bands. Aren’t they cute? Once the video is posted on Ms. Joyce’s website, we will share it with you. Of course, Monday was Halloween and we put on costumes and walked to a few neighbors’ houses to get candy. They all commented how cute we were and put treats in our bag. Somehow when we got up on Tuesday our bags were empty…not sure what happened but we still had a fun time trick-or-treating. We also went back to MDO after missing a day to spend with GAMA and got right back to our normal routine without a problem. On Saturday, we celebrated another special birthday: Parky’s! He turned one and we had a fun time celebrating with him and his family. Many of you will be glad to know that Garet really warmed up to Parky’s dog and she even asked to pet him a few times! Today Daddy decided to give Mommy a little break so he took us to Sautee for the day. Of course, we had a wonderful time and were glad that Mommy got a break.
WOW! Kitt and Garet, excitement all around for the expected new babby. Granddaddy and I are so, so thrilled with your announcement. Well wishes to both of you, your Mom and Dad. We enjoyed the birthday time we spent with you. Kitt looking for the music in the birthday card, Garet playing “If You’re Happy and You Know It” song over and over and over again!!! And all the towers of blocks built and knocked down. Granddaddy is planning to download all the pictures he took of the fun with had and e-mail them to the rest of the family. I love you so very much and we will skype with you soon. Grammy Bertha
Well girls, it took me a while to figure out how to post on this new blog, but I think I understand it now. I sure am excited about the prospect of your having a baby brother or sister join you next year. I know you will be excited too when the time comes and I’m sure you’ll take good care of the new baby. Are you missing GAMA? I’m sure you enjoyed having some special time with her last week. And you both got to go to one of my favorite places–the north Georgia mountains. Were the trees showing off their brilliant fall colors? I hope you’re having a good week and being good little girls for your Mommy and Daddy. Poppy has to get back to work now. Take care. Love you lots! Poppy
Little Llamas – How I love your new blog – you are so blessed to have such a creative mommy – she didn’t inherit that talent from Granny. I especially enjoy the Llama books. I have read three that you have in your room. Are there any more Llama books? You two look adorable in your dresses with matching headbands and in your Halloween costumes. I can’t imagine where those M&M’s went that I saw your neighbor giving you! I thoroughly enjoyed my time with you prior to your birthday and then the big birthday celebration. What a joyous day it was not only because you turned two, but because all your relatives were there to party with you. Seeing Uncle Michael was a tremendous treat as he can rarely get away from work, student teaching and attending college. It is evident you girls are loved by lots of people!!! I know you will have a fun week as your mommy makes every effort for that to happen. I can’t wait to read on Sunday evening what your week has been like. Love you lots, Granny
I love your new website! It’s so much easier to look through the pictures, too! I also wanted to say hi and how your blog is a part of my Monday routine. Your Aunt Kristen told me about your blog, and I love checking it out every Monday! I used to kind of dread Mondays because weekends are so fun, but seeing your beautiful faces and reading about what a fun time you girls are having makes me smile! Tell your mommy she’s doing a great job on the blog and congratulations to everyone on the new baby! Maybe one day I’ll get to meet you all in person! NICOLE (Aunt Kristen’s friend)
Hello Girls and New Baby to come! I had such a wonderful time visiting with you girls and your Mom and Dad. Your birthday party was such great fun. It was lovely to meet in person so many of the great friends you and your parents have made over the past couple of years. You two are so fortunate to have so many people who love you so much. It’s hard to choose my favorite adventure that I had last week with you girls — trick or treating was a blast until the doggies made you so nervous, Garet; music class was a blast, especially watching you, Kitt, dance up a storm; as Bertha said, the building blocks were fun, especially when both of you would laugh so much after destroying my creations; the museum visit was fun too (well your Mom enjoyed it anyway); singing the goodnight song with you, your Mom and Dad was precious; and the gluten-free pizza was yummy. Aha, of course, my favorite time was bath time. I loved squirting both of you with the ducks. However, it was unfair of both of you to turn on me since I was fully clothed. Soooooooooo, all being said………..I miss every second I was with you both!!! And to our newest one to the family, God speed and know that we are so looking forward to meeting you in May! During your journey, please know that your family and friends are already overjoyed and filled with so much love for you!
