Cady has been so full of hilarious conversations recently and I don’t want to forget any of them. She seriously has me cracking up constantly.


Cady: Daddy, you are going to be Flynn Ryder when we play Rapunzel.

Jason: How do we play Rapunzel?

Cady: You stand here and I hit you in the head with a frying pan.

Jason: I don’t think I will like being hit with a frying pan.

Cady: You just have to pretend to like it.



While helping me pick out a Valentine card for Jason

Cady: Momma, get him that mad one. (a stick figure on the front of the card had a mad face drawn on)

Me: I don’t think I want to get Daddy a mad card. I love him.

Cady: But that’s the face you always make at him



Jason was in Tulsa for business

Cady (out of the blue): Mom, why is Daddy in salsa?

Me (only half listening): What? Why is he where?

Cady: Salsa

Me (fully listening, but confused): What?!?

Cady: Why is Daddy in salsa?!?! You know! With Uncle Ben?!!?



Cady: You remember that time I was with Nana and PawPaw John because you weren’t taking care ofย  me?

(We were on vacation, not just NOT taking care of her)



:Singing “Brown Eyed Girl with the radio:

Me: Cady, this song was written about you.

:singing some more:

Cady: MOM! I am not a one eyed girl! I have two eyes!!!



She is so hilarious, y’all. And this is only what I can recall right now. These have all been within the last couple of weeks. I’ve got to start doing this more often because she just cracks me up.

That face

Drama queen antics already. When Hadley doesn’t like something this is what she does. Most “no-no’s” are met with this face. It is hard to keep a straight face when she does this

Knock, Knock

I don’t know where she picked it up, but this weekend Cady has started telling “Knock, knock” jokes.

She doesn’t really understand the whole concept because all of hers are

“Knock, knock”

“Who’s there?”


And then the punchline follows. A lot of time the punchline is Cady and then whatever she is doing right at that moment. But they are still so funny to me. I also don’t think she gets real “Knock, knock” jokes when I tell them to her. But we still have fun with them.

So tonight she wanted to “play knock knock” and she kept saying the same punchline over and over. But I have no clue what it was because she would get so tickled by the thought of it that she would start cracking up as she was saying it.

I caught it on video. This is the sweet, silly, absolutely crazy little girl I get to spend every day with. And I love it.

I apologize for my voice and my cough in the video. Allergies are kicking my butt again right now and my voice has disappeared.

Also, please feel free to share what YOU think Cady’s punchline is or even some good “Knock, knock” jokes. I’m running out of material. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Our little crawfish

Hadley is mobile-ish. She doesn’t crawl. She really isn’t anywhere close to crawling. She *can* get up on her hands and knees, but she chooses not to. She would much rather scoot around on her bottom. So in case you don’t get the reference, crawfish swim backward. Hadley scoots backward. It got dubbed The Crawfish because she first started doing it in the bathtub, like a little crawfish.

Photography by Cady 2

It has been a long time since I have done an installment of this. The first was here.

Yeah it has been that long since we have gotten the pictures of her little camera. For a while the batteries were dead.

She has definitely improved in her photography skills. But her favorite subject still tends to be herself. I consider it part of the Facebook generation. Being well versed in the art of self portraits is important.

I am a bit concerned that she is already doing the “duck face” :-/

And she also does the obligatory bathroom mirror shot. I figure it will get better as she gets a little taller. LOL

She really has had improvement in taking pics of others. Most of our face gets in the frame now.

She has also started taking pics of random objects. And some of them seem to be on purpose.

Some… not so much on purpose

But her new favorite subject? Her baby sister. She has a pretty willing model. Mainly because she can’t get away yet.

Finally, I was able to snap a sweet one of my favorite subjects. I love those two girls!

Crazy Hand Hadley

Today at Kindermusik I noticed an interesting quirk of Hadley’s. She has a crazy hand. But only when she is holding on to an object. She can’t seem to keep it still when there is something in her hand. I thought it might just be a fluke at Kindermusik, but then I noticed it while she was playing after we got home. So I tested out my theory and sure enough. So, of course, I got a video of it.

Oh and by the way, I don’t just toss my kid anywhere on the floor. She has a perfectly good play mat that she just rolls right off of and then she just hangs out in the middle of the floor.

Whip My Hair

Ok, so I will admit that I am old. I don’t listen to most of the new music. And when I do, I don’t understand what it is talking about (friends, lets remember that I thought the G6 song was about Pontiacs). So, I don’t really know what “Whip My Hair” means, but it is a catchy little song. Cady thinks so too.

Message from Santa

The best Sister-In-Law in the world (who happens to be mine!) posted a link to make a personalized video from Santa. Cady is very into the Santa thing right now so I knew she would love it. I also thought it might be a good idea to take a video of her reaction to it. I have no idea why. And at first I thought I would likely just end up deleting it because it didn’t seem like it was going to be worthwhile. Then I realized she thought she was skyping with Santa instead of just watching a video. I was working so hard behind the camera to not laugh out loud.

And if you want to make your own Santa video for someone here is where you can do it at:ย  Portable North Pole

By popular demand…

a picture of the pink cell ornament was requested by several people. So here it is in all it’s glory

Isn’t it awful?!?!? It is mostly the “Text Me” part that I despise. Who’s genius idea was it to let her pick her own? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Photography by Cady

For Christmas Cady got one of those cool Kid Tough Digital Cameras. She can actually take pictures and we can upload them to the computer. A lot of her photography is of nothing, but she has gotten a few shots.

Cady and Daddy

Her feet in various states

My feet

Me, in the act of changing her diaper

A stain on her shirt (I’m sure this is some sort of social commentary ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

And then her favorite subject, herself, from various angles.

There will likely be future installments of “Photography by Cady” as she takes more pictures.
