Miss Independent Post II

Today was Caroline's first trip to the dentist. After Austin Kieff's first visits, I was dreading the appointment. Well, how crazy was I to think for one minute that my baby girl would be apprehensive. Not only was she cool as a cucumber, she DID NOT want her mommy going back with her. In fact, she was MAD she didn't go back first!! When her turn came, Caroline took the doctor's hand, told me she would see me later and that she was going to get her teeth sparkled! The hygienist told me Caroline was the best two year old patient yet. They were able to fully examine her teeth, brush, floss and complete a fluoride treatment. She calmly submitted to the entire process. I was flabbergasted.

Both kid loved Dr. Schreiber. The hygienists were awesome. The caboose car play area out front and patient play area in the exam room were a hit! Not to mention over twenty flavors of toothpaste to choose from, multiple toothbrush designs to choose from and let's not forget PRIZES!

Austin Kieff loves his T-shirt with the chew-chew train on it and Caroline is still sporting her bracelets.

Memory Lane

Took a stroll down memory lane today. I know I am biased, but the University of Alabama has one of the most beautiful college campuses. We showed the kids where I lived during college. I couldn't help the rush of memories. I made some wonderful friends, lost some wonderful friends, lived through some trying situations, learned to study, became a fan of iced coffee, became engaged, worked with some amazing people (on and off campus!), learned to be self sufficient, developed true appreciation for the life and family God blessed me with...all that and so much more during my four years at the University of Alabama. I hope my children will choose the University one day. Until then we will enjoy gamedays and special visits!

Miss Independent

I knew it was coming, but why did it have to come so early???? Caroline is no longer my baby girl and she will emphatically tell you, "Caroline not a baby." She wants to walk by herself, eat by herself, bathe herself, even talk on the telephone by herself. Gone is the doll baby who wanted me to hold her at all times and help her do everything. If I have heard "Caroline help you" once, I have heard it a thousand times. She is a constant assistant regardless of the task. Yes, it is sweet, but some jobs are just not easily completed by two, ha!!

However, let Miss Independent get the least bit sleepy and my doll baby emerges. I love it!!!

The Best Days

The best days for me are days spent with family and today was definitely a "best day" for the Jordans.

We slept in before attending Austin Kieff's double header. If you have never watched a t-ball game you don't know what you're missing! You would think these kids were major league players the way they talk about the game, practice and plan the next inning. Of course one breath later they might be playing in the dirt, singing a song or twirling their glove. I love it! Today Austin Kieff was Logan Pierce. He was so hot and so tired, yet between games instead of resting and cooling off, he wanted to practice fielding.

We took a last minute trip to Pensacola to visit my Nanny. It has been far too long since we've seen her. We had dinner with Aunt Sue and Uncle Bob. Tomorrow we will go to church and see Aunt Ann and Uncle MT. Nanny goes to a small church plant called Three Rivers Baptist. They just purchased land to build a new church.

I wish this weekend would last so much longer than these quick 48 hours...I truly treasure days like this!
