During our recent vacation to Florida, Kaitlynn discovered a love for puppies. Grandma Cheryl and Grandpa Jerry have 2 dogs, Gucci and Midge, as well as Uncle Justin with his dog, Shots. At first Kaitlynn was a bit fearful when the dogs came near her, but she quickly got over that and soon began chasing them all over the house saying, "Puppa! Puppa!" We would be on a golf cart ride with Kaitlynn in my lap when suddenly she would look up at me and exclaim, "Puppa!" And sure enough, I would look around and spot the dog she had seen.
Since we've been back home, she will spot dogs and puppies everywhere - TV, magazines, around the neighborhood. Now it seems that anything cute and cuddly is also a puppa. The other day we were at a mall play area when I found her admiring a baby in a carseat as she said, "Puppa!" No, Kaitlynn, it's a baby, not a puppy!
