So October was a busy month for the whole, Patton-McCracken-Jones-Tay, family!!!

The month started with the best of all events, besides births and engagements, my Momma and Poppa finally made the damn thing official! Our family made it up the mountain to our favorite B&B for the perfect ceremony surrounded by friends and family. Kaelen and all the nieces and nephews absolutely loved the Manor and all it had to offer!

In true fall fashion we made our way to the Pumpkin Patch to take Kaelen for her first time ever and though it did not go as planned it was still an event for US and well worth all the tears. Halloween was a blast!!! Kaelen did so well with the Trick or Treating. Her costume was adorable, of course I wish I would have made her one instead of buying it but what we had planned would have been too cold so Party City had to do and naturally I added a few details. I did however make the costumes for Kyle and I, not to self…cheap costume out of a box makes for a super cute idea but need to rethink functionality for potty breaks!!!

On to the good stuff!!! Kaelen is 17 months and blows our minds everyday! She is talking up a storm. Uses her manors, both please and thank you. Has the occasional, almost 2 years old, fit which is quickly put in check and handled rather well if I do say so myself. She understands why she is put on time out and listens when we talk to her about it. She is starting to get used to the idea of going POTTY!!!! We talk about it quite often and she can even tell you if she’s going pee or poopie, and as soon as she done with her business she rushes to get a ‘new butt’ or sit on HER potty in the bathroom. We plan on starting the actual potty training in just a few weeks J She is starting to pay attention to the TV and absolutely loves Big Bird and Whales. She has an imagination and wants to tell us stories, she feeds herself and says sorry if she does something she knows she is not supposed to. We are truly blessed to have such a smart, understanding and well mannered little person! Just don’t turn your head too long…she’ll be in our pantry, your cupboards or your shoes in minutes!
