Caitlin & Daddy have fun with one of the simplest toys out t here, who would've known?!
After making the decision that we would switch providers, we knew we had to call our current provider and give her the required notice. We called her last night and boy, did she ever start reading us the riot act. We have to give her 3 weeks paid notice that we're terminating our contract. So, on top of paying for Miss Mousey's house, we will have to shell out another $250+! That's over $700 worth of day care for August. Holy smokes! Somehow, we'll figure out a way to afford it because we really think that Miss Mousey will be a better choice for Caitie in the long run. Of course, we're nervous like any parent would be having to make this kind of decision. All we can do is hope & pray.

Her upper and lower canines are working on coming in. She never does teeth one at a time, but in bunches. Once she gets these 4 in, I believe she will have all of her baby teeth.
Her rate at day care is going to drop from $22 to $19 a day because she is no longer classified as an infant.
When did this happen?! No warning, nothing! Denial is a powerful thing, especially for us mommies. First, we want them to grow up and learn to do new things and then, when we realize that they are growing up, we want them to be infants again. There are moments when I want to trade Caitlin in for a newer model. Ben has to remind me that we didn't lease Caitlin and no, she didn't come with a money-back guarantee. I've come to realize that if the journey has been this rewarding, the future can only be more so...bring it on. I will greet her accomplishments, mishaps, giggles and tears head on--but with a few tears, no doubt.
