Alrighty Then.

My goodness. It has been a busy couple of weeks since last I wrote. My, my, my.

Where to begin?

Well we'll start with me: I started CNA classes at a community college here in town. This week we had skills finals and a written final tomorrow. I am putting off studying so that I can relax before having a test anxiety related freak out. I applied to take the state test, I will find out which day of the last week of July I will be taking it. After tomorrow's final though - I am a CNA. I just won't be licensed until I pass the state exam - and I totally will.

After that: Nursing School. EEEEEEK. So excited, but very scared. Anyway, now on to the subject you are all here for. Kaylee Monster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, she has been busy this month.

First, she tried to be Ms. Potato Head, she tried on roller skates, then swam, and (of course) was swinging.
Does this hat look funny to you? 
Well, this is......interesting.
Just keep swimming, just keep swimming.....
.......then start swinging, then start swinging.
Then, we drove to Texas, listened to music, and Kaylee Monster went on her first plane ride home (which I don't have a photo of because I was way more nervous than she was - more on that in a minute):
You know that picture is gonna be blurry, right mom?
I love the guitar, I love it. 
We flew into Denver from San Antonio. I thought she was not going to like the plane ride at all. I was worried she was going to cause a really big scene, but she did wonderfully. So wonderfully in fact that the flight attendants were impressed. She even went to the potty on the airplane. I was floored. She sat and watched "Brave" on the kindle most of the plane ride there, except when she got up to look at the "floor." She loved it! She was like, "we flying!"

Oh, side note: in Texas, my nephew taught her how to sing the ABC song! It was adorable!

Since then it has been nothing but hanging out, swimming and tea parties when mom gets out from class:
These are my cousins. That's right, I'm related to Spider Man!
Swimming, I love swimming! I'm gonna go down the slide into the pool!!!
Tea party, mom. Tea party. More tea?
Even the monkey is invited to the tea party.
 So, yep. That's what has been going on so far this month. I promise I will update more, but probably not next week. I  have clinicals next week. Eeeeek. I have to be up and out of the house by 5:15 am. :( That's too early, but it's okay. It's worth it.

So, that's about it. We've been busy. Oh, but the Monster is potty trained. Thank you, thank you very much. She is amazing. Without this kid, I seriously would be lacking in fun and awe in my life. :)

In any case - I have to go. I really have to start studying. See you later, Jess.
