After a four month sabbatical we are finally updating our blog again. Instead of trying to catch up on what's been going on, we decided to continue with our "spotlight" series. Next on the list is our wonderful four-year old Kaylin.

Born in March 2006, Kaylin has filled our lives with lots of laughs. She never ceases to amaze us with the things she learns. For instance, today I found out she wants "to be a billionaire so freakin' bad." Other than Steven's spontaneous bursts of opera singing, Kaylin is easily the most vocally apt of the children. She loves to sing church songs and to sing along to the radio. It's always fun to catch her when she doesn't realize anyone is listening.

Jamie really appreciates Kaylin for all the help she gives around the house and taking care of Tyler while the kids are in school. Jamie has loved the alone time she gets with Kaylin. Although she's still over a year away, Kaylin is looking forward to the day she starts kindergarten.

Now that summer vacation is back in session, Kaylin has started gymnastics (or "tenastics," as she likes to call it). Today was her first day and she thoroughly enjoyed it. She is very excited to go back next week.

Kaylin is the ultimate girl. She loves dressing up, painting her nails, putting on make up and all those other things that girls like to do. She is definitely "mommy's little girl." Fortunately, she does like to play catch with dad, too.

We are very excited to see Kaylin continue to grow up. She is a blessing to our lives with her wonderful and happy personality.
