Have You Seen Me Lately?

Miss me? Or more importantly, miss the updates about Kaitlyn? The past week offered a much deserved hiatus from blogging, since last month pretty much wiped the creative out of my juices. Otherwise I would have just posted juices, and no one wants that. That's how you ended up with nuggets like this and this. Not my best work, I must say.

Anywho, here's the scoop from the past week:
  • Kaitlyn likes to demand things now, as in "I want (enter any object of desire here)" or "I need (enter any object of desire here)." It's like she was a member of The Hills.
  • Michelle and I never take the camera out anymore since we've got iPhones. Michelle is now wishing that she got the 3GS so she could shoot video of all the fun things she complains about missing.
  • When it comes to the kiddie potty, Kaitlyn has become a pooping fool. Partly because we're working so hard with her. Partly because she gets three M&Ms for each deuce. I'l only give you one guess as to which has more influence.
  • She won't go to sleep on her own. She'll fall asleep on the couch, in the car, in Mommy and Daddy's bed, in Boo's bed, on the floor, on my chest, in the middle of Costco in the cart on a bust Saturday. But in her bed with the lights out and soft music playing? Nah.
  • Is it just me or did we skip a season? Near-90 degrees on two days earlier this week and more hot days a-coming. Good thing Kaitlyn doesn't get heat rash or have sensitive skin. Oh wait, Kaitlyn has both of those things. Fun times.
And I'm working on Growing Up Kaitlyn 2.0. Any suggestions on things you'd like to see (features, not content. I determine that), just leave a comment.

Duke Blue Devils 2010 NCAA Champions: A Tribute

In honor of the Duke Blue Devils rightfully securing their place atop the college basketball landscape, I bring you the littlest Blue Devil in one of her finest moments.

Don't hate. Appreciate. 2010 NCAA National Champion Duke Blue Devils. Has a nice ring to it.

Gabba Coma meets the Obamas

And I thought the Gabba Coma was limited to my house. Now Foofa, Plex, DJ Lance Rock and the rest of the bunch are headed to The House. This was what welcomed me in the inbox today:

Hello James!

On Monday, April 5th, DJ Lance and the rest of the Gabba Gang are rolling up to the White House to perform at this year's Easter Egg Roll for 30,000 attendees from all 50 states! The gang will be taking the Rock 'n' Egg Roll Stage to perform numbers from their mega-successful live tour, Yo Gabba Gabba! Live!: There's A Party In My City , which continues its run in 2010!

Following the First Lady's Let's Move! initiative to combat childhood obesity, the theme of the Easter Egg Roll is 'Ready, Set, Go!' That sounds like the perfect reason for everyone to get up, jump, and DANCE!

Happy Easter, everyone!

Your Gabba-Friends

I'm sure Sasha and Malia will enjoy themselves at this year's egg roll, which has become a celebrity event. And yeah, the Gabbas and DJ Lance know my name. We're good like that.

But on a more serious matter, The Gabba Coma invading the White House explains a lot. The healthcare debacle? Surely. The bank bailout? Most definitely. Rahm Emanuel's choice to attend a Wilco concert? Gabba Conspiracy!
