New Friends

I love it when Katelynn makes new friends.
She honestly doesn't have all that many.
All my friends with children started a bit earlier than I (ahem) but the ones she has we love.

For example, Miss E. Love her!!! Her and Katelynn seem to get along just great. There may be a few squabbles here and there, but they work them out. And they have only been around each other a handful of times. Just imagine if we lived closer, BEST FRIENDS FOREVER!!
She also holds her own with her older cousins. Ryan and Jake give her a run for her money, but she hangs in there. Katelynn is warming up to Corrina a little easier now and they are two little cuties!!

We have had a new friend who has been showing up at our house quite often lately. She is there in the morning and when we get ready to head out to hit the "perfume store" (Ulta) or Target. She always seems to be right there and HAS to go with us.

Our new friend is Sassy! From what Katelynn tells me she has short, white hair and is very very small. (K will hold her hand right above the carpet when I ask her how tall Sassy is.)
Sometimes Sassy shows up on her own, other times she is accompanied by her mommy, daddy and baby sister. Oh that Sassy is a silly little girl. She doesn't usually get K in trouble but every once in a while when a bedroom door is slammed to keep little sister out or a roll of toilet paper is torn up and all over the floor in the bathroom, Sassy gets the blame.

I am not worried about this at all. Katelynn has such an amazing imagination!! She can play on her own for hours on end, and I am NOT exaggerating. She paints, cooks, teaches school, changes her baby's diaper, anything and everything all by herself. She gets into her room (sometimes Aubrey's) and plays all by herself. I love that she can do that. For one, it gives me a break but also I love knowing she doesn't need any one else around to make her happy.

I don't ever remember having an imaginary friend. I think my cousin Stephanie did. And I know my little brother did. He had two I remember, Uncle and John Halko. So maybe it's in her blood.

Oh well, Sassy is a welcome addition in our household, for however long she plans to stay.

Quick pic of Katelynn and Sassy. They got all dolled up and went for a little drive. (FYI, Sassy is sitting on K's lap.)

Sassy and K packing the backpack in preparation to go to Wal-Mart. (don't worry, we put on some pants too!)

  1. That's awesome! I love her name :) I think it's great that K can entertain herself. I wish we lived closer so she could teach Emma that little trick.
