On the other hand I am learning first hand how totally and completely different girls are vs. boys! I think I have the ideal candidates for a study on nature vs. nurture and development of the sexes. How can two kids who have the same parents, raised in the same home only 21 months apart be sooooooooo different. Boys vs. Girls. Makaylee is gentle, she is content to cuddle up on the couch and read books, or watch TV. If we tell her no, she usually listens, she is not a risk taker in the slightest, and she HATES messes. So, the complete opposite of Kaiden! I guess what they say about opposites attracting must be true. Because Makaylee looks and acts just like me and Kaiden looks and acts just like Mike. So, does this mean they will get along or not? Does the whole opposite attract thing work for siblings? Maybe they will level one another out! A parent can hope right??

Is everyone impressed with my sewing skills on Dopey? That is right, I could not find a Dopey costume to purchase for kaiden, so I decided that I could make one by myself. I have to say, I was really happy with how it turned out. Mike kept telling me I should send it to his Mom for her to make it. But I was determined. So here is our little Dopey:

So when we told Makaylee we were going to the pumpkin patch she kept talking about jumping in the puddles. We have a DVD of video's of Makaylee and she loves to watch it, so she has seen that same video several times. On Saturday she did not seem interested in jumping. But on Sunday she said she wanted to jump in the mud. Well in the past year Makaylee has developed a fear of being dirty. We call her our little ocd girl. Don't get me wrong, she has NO problem with toys being all over the place. But heaven forbid she gets dirt on her hands, or her face or hands are sticky. We have two dogs that shed and if she has dog hair on her feet she freaks out and sits down to brush it off. The only exception to this is Chocolate. If she is helping me bake she gets chocolate all over herself and she has NO problem with this. Back to the point. So this is what happened at the Pumpkin patch when she tried to jump in the mud:
And just to give fair share, here is Kaiden enjoying the hay:

Look, everyone is looking at the camera and smiling!
Happy boy sitting on a pile of pumpkins
Makaylee and Daddy smiling. This is her new cheese smile when we tell her to look at the camera and smile. Not sincere, but still cute!
Both the kids. Please smile at the same time. Come on kids, please! Well, look at the camera at the same time okay??
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this pic of him.
Hey look, a giant spider!

So here they are:
Last week was also a busy week because my baby learned how to crawl! I need to get a video on here. I took one, but the size is to large to upload. With his new found skills he is on the go and into everything. He steals poor Makaylee's toys, and tries to grab her snacks. He also went from 3 naps a day to 2. So they no longer nap together. So sad :( Kaiden naps in the morning, then Makaylee's turn to nap in the mid afternoon, then Kaiden in the later afternoon. No break for Mommy. Which is bad for the house and Mom, but good for the kids. Because now they each have their own special Mommy time.
We took the kids to the fair yesterday and Makaylee LOVED it! We were so surprised at how well she did. They both loved all the animals. Which is no surprise. Makaylee has always loved the animals. She even had a conversation with a Llama. Well the Llama was talking and Makaylee was copying the noises right back to him. She thought she was pretty cool. We then went to the rides, and knowing our little chicken we were not expecting much. She did wonderful! She loved the giant slide, went on the air balloons that go up and down, swings, canoe ride, boats, and the slide some more. Oh and the carousel. Makaylee use to be terrified of the carousel and she loved it. We bought tickets to see the doodlebops on Sunday at the fair, and I am sure we will be riding more rides. I promise to post pics soon.

Here they are in the garage:
Yup, I better do something with this baking business cause I need to start getting rid of these boxes! Time to set up my Etsy website so I can ship. If you can believe it I got all of these boxes for free from someone on Craigslist. She has a flower/cake business and got a ton of these boxes and did not have room to store them all. So she was giving them away for free. Well, I could not pass up free!!!! They are so perfect for the cake bites! They are in the 1/2 lb size, and a full pound size. Almost all in red, and about 1 box of gold.
Makaylee loves Jojo's Circus, and she has a pet Lion named Goliath. So here is what they look like for those who have never heard of the show:
Here is the Jojo Costume
This would be the Lion Costume for Kaiden, they do make it in his size:
Makaylee also loves Ariel So here is a toddler Ariel Costume, though I don't know if we could get her to keep on a wig, Maybe spray her hair red for the night or something instead:
Last would be Cinderella and a mouse. I cannot find a brown mouse like the mice in Cinderella, but I think this white mouse is super cute:
And Cinderella for Makaylee even though she is not blong :)
I wish I could get her to watch Snow White because I think having her be Snow White and Kaiden Dopey would be to cute, but she is not a fan of Snow White. That, and I have never seen a baby Dopey costume for Kaiden. But maybe just a green toddler robe and purple hat and i am sure everyone would get the point that he is Dopey. Hmmmmmm. Maybe that as an option as well. She does have the hair for Snow White! I know I was Snow white several times when I was little because I had the hair for Snow White as well :) Please post a comment and let me know what you think!
