Proud moments for parents

What is this salty, watery substance coming out of my eyes?

Kks was playing downstairs on Saturday having one of her many conversations with herself--at least she was enjoying her growing language abilities, when I heard a familiar tune from her mouth and a shout of "Go, Jayhawks!" I couldn't have taught her that tune more than five times...she picks things up quickly. Yes, I am proud, and I plan to employ kks utterances during the basketball season as the games become more important and as we watch more KU games on tv.

Many time kks' mother and I will say that kks' favorite food is whatever we're eating. That reached a proud moment for my wife as she drank a latte yesterday. Kks grabbed the large Nebraska Cornhusker latte mug (sorry, rev. darth) and said, "my coffee." Either she is truly enjoying the taste that I loathe, or she will go to great lengths to eat or drink whatever Mommy is consuming.

We are decorating the tree today--I have been teaching the song "O Christmas Tree." Kks has "Jingle Bells" down pat. She likes the Barenaked Ladies' version the best--it gets hoppin'.
