Mommy, Take My Picture

For whatever reason, Kaylee asked me to take her picture before school the other day.  I, of course, couldn’t resist.  So, here she is – in all her glory.

Yes, that is a furry red shirt…and she loves it!

Audiology Follow-Up

Kaylee had a follow-up appointment with her audiologist today in Fort Wayne.  Her new ear mold arrived, and it is a beauty.


Pink and purple swirled plastic – what’s not to love!

The audiologist also conducted a hearing test while we were there.  Kaylee did a really great job!  She actually let them put the headphones on her so that they could get an accurate reading of her hearing.

As expected, hearing loss in her right ear is severe and loss in the left ear is mild.  So, Kaylee will be wearing a hearing aid in the left ear and nothing in the right ear. 

The right ear may not even have a nerve running from the ear to the brain, so a hearing aid wouldn’t actually help.  It would just be in the way.

This is probably the best hearing test Kaylee has done to date.  Never before has she allowed them to get a localized test of her ears. 

We go back in three weeks so they can check to make sure the hearing aid is set at the proper level for Kaylee.

Warrior of Character

Last November Kaylee earned the Warrior of Character Award at school.  Here she is receiving her award from Mr. Garner, Principal.


Here are all the Kindergartners lined up that received awards.  Aren’t they just adorable!


After the awards presentation Kaylee posed for a quick photo with her award.


We are very proud of our little Warrior!

Snow Much Fun

Winter is here and Kaylee is enjoying her new coat, snow pants, and boots that Grandpa Steve and Grandma Kay bought her for Christmas. 

While Mommy was at work last week Kaylee and Daddy plowed the driveway, made snow angels and threw snowballs at each other.  It was very fun and very cold!

Very Stylish


After we returned home from vacation, I unpacked our suitcases and Kaylee unloaded my jewelry box.  As you can see, she is sporting a snowman pin, koala bear necklace and earrings. 

As always, what a cutie!

So McLallin girls, any guesses where the earrings came from?  Look closely, you’ve seen them before.

Happy New Year!

It is totally unbelievable that 2009 has come and gone. Looking back on the year reminds me of just how blessed our family is. We have a beautiful, healthy daughter. Every report from every doctor brought positive news this year. Kaylee has such a sweet personality. She makes me smile each and every day.

I am also blessed with a husband who loves me very much. I still can't believe we've been married 10 years. It has gone so quickly!

Have a blessed new year!
