KiKi’s Turn: Share!

My sister is getting bigger.  And she’s pretty smart.  She talks A LOT!  Like even more than me, and that’s A LOT LOT!  She likes to say “Share!!” really loud and over and over when she wants me to give her a toy I have.  And she says, “My turn!” a lot too. 

I haven’t been very good for Mommy to take pictures lately, because I always turn around.  And that means most of the pictures on the camera have been with KiKi instead of me.

So I thought I would let her have some pictures on here sometimes, since she always wants to do the computer when I’m trying to do my stories.  She’s not as  cute as me, I say, but I’ll show you some anyway.

KiKi likes to get over on the side of the swinging chair where she’s not supposed to be.  She wants to play with the computer and the cords, but we’re not allowed over there unless we sneak.

Auntie Rachel always makes us laugh a lot.  She is really silly, even when she’s all dressed in her working clothes.  KiKi calls her “Rach,” but I try to tell her the right way to say it.

If you have ever seen KiKi play with glasses, you know that she HATES to have them on her face.  She gets really mad!  Sunglasses or silly glasses or anything like that.  But the other day, she just decided she would try mine on! 

Ok, that’s all for now.  She used to have her own blog for stories, but she didn’t do enough fun things to make people want to see.  At least, that’s what I think happened.

Miss Shelley’s got more chances to win!

Mommy put this on her page a few minutes ago… I hope we win, so I’m gonna tell you about it, too.

Here’s what Mommy said:
Preschool Prep is a company I just now am learning about, and so far, I’m a fan of everything I’m seeing.  Shelley’s giving away a great set, so go over and enter to win!  (Isn’t her blog especially cute???  wink, wink)

If you’re someone who buys Braska gifts at any time, put this on your list of options for the next birthday or Christmas.  It is all stuff we could really use to work on things we’d like her to be learning currently.  The first one on the list would be Meet the Colors—DVD and Books.  I’m gonna have to see if there’s room in the budget soon for that one… 

If money were no object… this would be my choice, ordering it today if I could! 

Ultimate Preschool Prep & Sight Words Pack


Truthfully, I just want all of them. How great would that be!?!  For working with both the girls.. we’d be all set!


I just love to learn.  If Mommy could spend all day working on my learning things, I would be really happy.  I love to practice my letters and numbers.  We’re trying to do colors but I get them mixed up.  I hope I win so that I can keep working on words!

And now....the winners!

Finally! Mommy and me have learned that we don't know much about the right way to do this kind of thing. We like to give things away, but we're not good at doing it the easy way! But after alot of Mommy's grouchy times, we finally got it done this morning.

Take a look at the movie and see if you won!!!

If your name was on there, make sure and send your address to Mommy so we can send you your fun stuff!! Her email is over there somewhere
on the side. See it?

And if you didn't win the new pretty blog stuff but you wanted it, Mommy's going to be doing something extra nice for you just because you played our game. If you want a fun or fancy blog, send her a note and tell her you want a new look, and she'll tell you about it and get one ready for you however you want it to be. (But the winner comes first, of course!)

Congratulations, Winners!!! Thank you, everybody, for playing our giveaway game!! It was really fun, I think!

Winners soon!

We're trying to get everything ready for drawing winners in our giveaway game. Mommy didn't know she had made it really hard to keep track of things.

Sometimes she gets excited and doesn't think very smart like. Don't tell her I told you.

So when she figures it all out we'll tell you who won later tonight!

(Mommy note: Braska's in bed. Since I want her to draw the names, we'll announce tomorrow morning. Sorry!)

On the BUS!

(Today’s the last day to enter the giveaway game!!  Did you tell your friends about it? Did you remind them to come try to win?  Better go do it now!)

Today it was time for school again!  I get to go to a new class with a new teacher for a little while in the summer time.   And guess what… I get to ride the bus!!  Mommy still takes me to school in the morning time, but she decided to let me come home on the bus after school so she can get Kinlee to nap at the right time every day.

But today, Mommy and KiKi came back to school when I was going to the bus so she could meet my bus driver.  They walked behind while I was learning where I go to get on my bus.

Then I found my bus and climbed up the great big steps!

Mommy said hi to my bus driver and the nice lady who helped me get in my seat.  And she took a couple pictures when she said goodbye.

Mommy and KiKi went home and waited for me to get there.

I saw them on the porch when I we got to my house a few minutes later.

KiKi came out to my bus with Mommy to help me get off.  Then the bus went away, and I walked to the front door. I think I’m going to like riding the bus!

Today is for daddies

(Don’t forget to enter the big giveaway game!)

My daddy doesn’t really like to be outside. But he takes us outside to play sometimes because it’s fun for me and KiKi.  Because that’s what good daddies do. 

Thanks for playing with us, Daddy!

The Four B’s of Me!

Are you excited?  I am!  It’s time to show you what I’m going to give away to some of you—my best bloggy buddies!

There are four things I love a whole bunch.  And they all start with my favorite letter—B for Braska!  So we’re going to share some of my favorite things with my favorite people.  Sometimes I get things that I like all messy because I use them a lot. But don’t worry, these aren’t things I got dirty or messy.  They are all brand new, just for you!

The first B is Bows!  I learned when I was a very tiny baby that it is not EVER ok to go anywhere at all without a bow. Sometimes I even wear two of them!  If Mommy doesn’t remember, I tell her it’s time for my bow before we get done getting dressed.  She trained me up good. (KiKi even tells Mommy she needs bows too.  I taught her about it.)

Mommy and I picked out some really cute colors from some ribbons that we found, and I even helped put them together.  So we have a set of 4 pairs of bows for you to win!

There’s one with dots, one with stripes, one with cute pink ladybugs, and one with footballs!!

The second B I love is Baby Signing Time!!!  If you have been reading my stories for very long, you know all about how much I like it.  I have a brand new movie of A New Day, even still in the shiny wrapper, but it’s an extra one because I already have that one.  Did you know that Miss Rachel, the one who is in the Baby Signing Time movies gave it to me herself??  We tried to give it to the library, but they didn’t want it. Isn’t that weird?  They said they already had enough.  Crazy people!  You can’t EVER have enough Baby Signing Time!  So I thought I’d share it with you! 

The third B is for Blogging!  It seems silly that I should even tell you that one. Because you already know I love telling my stories on my blog!

So I’m going to help Mommy do a fancy new look for somebody’s blog!  You can tell us what you like, what colors are your favorite, you can send us pictures to use if you want, too.  We can make it however you like, as long as we know how. We are still learning, you know.  But it’s going to be pretty fun! 

Oh, and if you don’t have a blog, that’s ok.  We’ll do something really cool for some of your pictures so that you can hang them on the wall or put them in a book, but they will look really special!

And the last B that I love is BabyLegs!!!  It’s too warm right now, but soon it will be cold again, and these are the best things for keeping warm AND looking so cute.     

We have 4 pairs that we will send you, some work for girls or boys, and some are for bumblebees, I think.  Did you see that one?  Anyway, they work for babies and for bigger kids like me, and you will love them as much as I do!

So what do you think?  Isn’t that some good stuff?  If you win, you can keep them or  you can give them to someone else for a present or something.  It’s really fun to give stuff to other people, you know. 

If you want to play our giveaway game with us, here’s how you do it…

1. Leave us a note on this post to tell us that you want to win something!  Tell us if you want to try to win all 4 B’s or which ones you want if there’s only one or two that you would want to win. 

2. You can get an extra chance to win if you put a story on YOUR blog to tell your friends about our giveaway game. Just don’t forget to tell us where to come see it!

3.  And if you get on our Followers list of friends, then you get in TWO TIMES also!

We’ll pick the winners in one week, on Tuesday, June 22. 

YAY!!  Giveaway games are fun!!!  Have a great week, everyone!

Wanna little hint?

We’re getting things ready to tell you about the fun things we’re gonna give to our friends!  (Did you miss it?!?  Go here!) There’s gonna be 4 groups of things, kind of, I mean…. I don’t know.  Mommy will be back in a while to tell you more.  She just said I could give you this… (it’s about one of the surprises!)


Everything is something that will remind you of me if you win!  But it’s not my picture or something easy like that. So you’ll have to check back in a while to see what it is!

A good fashion statement

I’ve heard people talk about a fa-shun stayt-munt.  Mommy told me how to spell it right so you would know what I mean…fashion statement.  Have you heard about this?  I’m not sure, but I think it’s when you put on pretty clothes and then tell someone something.  And I have something to tell you!!

So here’s the pretty clothes… these were our Sunday pictures from yesterday.  Daddy took them while Mommy was getting ready for church. Me and KiKi were playing and we didn’t stand still to do good Sunday pictures.  But Daddy sneaked in some good ones.

And now, here’s what I’ve got to tell you…..

To celebrate my new pretty blog that we worked really hard on, me and Mommy are going to be giving some fun things away to somebody who likes to read our stories!  Do you like to get stuff for just reading my stories?

And here’s how you can get stuff… You’re going to like it!  And there’s more than one thing! 

1. Leave a comment on THIS POST TODAY (Monday) for an “early entry.”  (That means you want to enter even though you don’t know what we’re giving away!)  That gets your name in the hat TWO TIMES already!

2.  There’s a place on the side of the blog that says “Followers.” (Mommy thinks this is a silly name because it sounds like we’re in a big line going somewhere.)  But anyway, we’re going to see if we can’t find a bunch of new friends to share our stories with!  So if you are in our Follower list already, you’ll get your name in the hat ONE TIME  just because we are happy you like us!! AND---if you want to get on our list new this week, you’ll get your name in TWO TIMES!

3. Because Mommy likes to have friends like I do, she’s going to put her friends on her Followers list in too!  If you want an extra chance to win stuff, you can get on Mommy’s list new this week, too!  That gets your name in TWO TIMES! Click here to go to Mommy’s page so you can get on her list.

4. If you have a blog too—or if you have that book of faces thing-- and you want to tell other friends about our fun stuff this week, then you get your name in the hat another time!  Just leave me a note so I can come see it.

So there’s a BUNCH of ways that you can get lots of chances win stuff… and on Tuesday, we’ll tell you what you can win.  One of them is one of my very favorite things in all the whole world!

Wooooooo Hooooooo!!!  This is gonna be SO fun!!!  Come play with us!

Dashlyn’s sale day!

Tomorrow is a big day at our house.  Miss Julie and Mr. Allan are going to get Jack’s new little sister and my new friend Dashlyn very soon, I hope.  So we’re having a big sale in our yard tomorrow to help them have enough money to go get her.  Mommy told all about it over here.  If you live around where we live in St. Louis, you should come!!! I’d like to get to see lots of people I know!

Fun day in the sun

I’ve got a bunch more pictures to show you, but here’s one for now.  Can you tell what I did yesterday??  It was fuuuuuuun!

(Mommy note:  I just LOVE pictures like this that show Braska’s crooked little pinky fingers.  They’re one (two?) of my favorite traits of Down syndrome. I wouldn’t straighten those little digits for anything…. So cute.)
