kastyn turned 5 months on the last day of june. i continue to be amazed everyday by what she is learning and doing. her personality is blooming, and i must say, she is quite a firecracker! this is good/cute/funny at times, and other times, i have prayed for her not to get my temper because i can testify, it is not something that is fun to deal with on a daily basis. i have struggled in this category since i can remember, and what i cant remember, my amazing parents who got to deal with it can testify! it's not just hard for a parent to deal with, but it's hard to feel your anger get ahold of you before you can even tell yourself that it's not worth boiling over. anywho, we will see where God takes us with this. and we will continue praying!
kastyn is so funny. as i am typing this, she is in her saucer (that she loves) talking and spitting all over the place. her voice and noises are adorable and her spitting is hilarious because whoever is holding her at the time she decides to perform this talent, she blesses them in a complete shower of spit-drops. she doesnt actually giggle quite yet, but when is happy and excited, she pants loudly and screams/squeals even louder. this means even if we are in church, praying, weddings, and walking down aisles in stores. she definitely draws attention wherever we go! only God can take credit for her indescribable cuteness and funny personality! well, i guess on the cuteness area, marc can take quite a bit of credit, since she's a spitting image of daddy! haha! mom and i did figure out that she for sure has our cheeks and mouth. mom found a pic of her a toddler and her mouth looks just like kas! woohoo! we can claim a bit of this credit now!!
