A bit overdue – Kai turned 2!

with 2 comments

It’s hard to believe sometimes – Kai is 2.  She’s not a baby anymore!  It feels as if the past 2+ years have just whizzed by and I am continually amazed at how much Kai has grown and how much she’s learning.


Ever since her birthday party, she has been very interested in cake.  She didnt’ really know about cake before but now recognizes cakes and will ask for not-one piece (aka many pieces).  Our amazing next door neighbor made her cake bright yellow at Kai’s request – see the picture?  It was very very yellow.


We got Kai a Strider pre-bike (like a bike but without pedals) for her birthday.  She’s not really into riding it just yet, she’s been riding her tricycle and practicing her steering but she’ll probably get into it soon.  We got the Strider since it’s the lightest one – a good thing, too since we’ll head out on her bike and then she’ll make me carry it home.

Kai is also really into tea parties these days.  She’ll set out cups or cup-like objects for everybody (people, dolls, stuffed animals) and serve them tea. Very cute, except sometimes she doesn’t want the party to end.

Look at me!

Look how much she’s grown – just a bit taller than the local scarecrows!  🙂

Anybody: What does a panda do?
Kai: Ka-boom! (falls on her knees)

Where did this come from?  We were at the zoo and she saw a baby panda learning to climb.  It fell down – ka-boom! – and the rest is history…

Look at me!
Kai will ask me to do something, and if I do it “wrong”, she’ll say “Mama.  Look at me” with a stern look on her face and proceed to show me how it’s done.

She’ll also ask everybody to look at her when she’s climbing, wearing something funny, holding an interesting object, etc.

I dunno
Her default answer used to be No.  Now it seems to be “I dunno”.  Hmm.

Her version of the alphabet song these days.

Monkey and Me. There's a tail on the other side (of both of them).

Mrs Bean and I were…just us.

The bean had lots of fun at the halloween parade in our neighborhood, although she was initially overwhelmed by all the people and how strange they looked.  She was also curious as to why the kids would run up to peoples doors (“I want in”) but we told her they were going up to say hi.  Next year we may let her collect treats, for now she gets to watch.

If I remember, I’ll have to post a butt shot so you can see their tails.  (Take that, internet search!  Let see what search queries show up…)
