We’re in Memphis visiting my sister and her family. The temperature is about 6 degrees warmer than New York so obviously we are applying a boatload of sunscreen.

Both my parents are here which is fun because I get to overhear conversations like this…

2-year-old Chase: “Nanny! I went poopy in the potty!! I went poopy in the potty!!”

My mother (AKA Nanny): “You want some manicotti? I don’t know. I have to ask your parents.”

2-year-old Chase: “I went poopy in the potty!”

My mother: “I know you want manicotti honey. I have to see if it’s okay to give you some. Boy, you must be hungry.”

I think Chase just finally gave in and enjoyed some delicious Italian food.

My mother also refers to tinfoil as “silver paper” because she’s just fancy like that.

Meanwhile my dad has a million baby name suggestions for my sister and me. Wait, hold on. Did I tell you my sister Quinn is pregnant? I know. She’s pregnant. I’m pregnant. We are like an O’Doul’s party train over here.

Have you ever seen a pregnant woman fly down a fire pole?

There you go. (I know you can’t even tell I’m pregnant in that photo but I assure you I am.)

Anyway, my dad has suggested baby names like Sparticus, Rex, Roosevelt and Charlemagne.

Quinn and I are obviously fighting over all of those. I’m just psyched that my baby is due a month before hers so I can get dibs on Charlemagne.

My dad also likes William Robert for my son so he can call the baby Billy Bob.

Meanwhile Summer got some practice holding a friend’s baby down here…

Afterwards I said, “You looked so great feeding the baby! Was it fun?”

“My arm hurt,” she responded which I think is her way of saying she is completely jazzed for her third younger sibling to arrive.

I have to share with you the cutest pictures from the week.  Here are Chase and his cousin Matej wearing their matching Christmas sweaters…

Now Chase is not a sweater boy and had no interest in putting it on. But because I thought my soul might die if he didn’t wear that ridiculously adorable sweater, I promised him a lifetime supply of M&M’s and whiskey to wear it.

And on our first night in Memphis, the twins both wanted to sleep in the same pack and play. And because Rick and I are easy going, I mean, too tired to put up a fight, we let them…

    Hey! We’re on our way to Memphis right now! We’re going to the Liberty Bowl on Monday. (Go Iowa State!!) I’m not looking forward to the weather. I’m sure you’re madly jealous of me for getting to sit outside for hours.

    Hope that you all had a very Merry Christmas! Congratulations to Quinn and Eric! How fun to have more cousins who will be around the same age. Love the pictures.

  • Denise says:

    I don’t think I’ve sent proper congrats on the pregnancy Kelcey! I’m excited for you and to watch the baby adventures continue to unfold. I still sit back and ruminate on your posts when you mention the twins. Twins! Our girls are close in age and then I see the adorable photo of the twins snuggling in a pack n play. You are my hero K!

  • Ahhh. The babies in the camp cot are beautiful. (although I did look a the nappies (diapers) and sigh for you and your next three years – did you get a break from nappies between the twins and your second oldest?)

  • Susan Kintner says:

    A true tribute to a wonderful holiday and a special New Year’s toast to everyone who participated….with an extra “you rock” for the Memphis hosts who bravely took on three generations. xo mom/nanny
