So in the whirlwind of weather we had in the last couple days I did not get the chance to blog about a special little girl's birthday that was on Monday...we actually started singing and celebrating her birthday early on Sunday, so it was like a 48 hour affair.
For her birthday she got what every little girl on the prairie wants... three huge snow piles and a day off from preschool to play outside ALL DAY!
Kolby Capri is now 4, and she is in charge of the house. Her brothers know she rules the roost and her dad is smitten by every little thing she does....kind of like the old Sting song. "EVERY LITTLE THING SHE DOES IS MAGIC...".
Since she is our baby Steph and I often say, "could you imagine life without Kolby?". Well, we can't and most people that meet her fall in love with her right away as well. Her awesome personality is probably the reason she has a ton of nicknames. So I thought I would list them and who is responsible for calling her by that name.
KoKo - Steph and I came up with that one right away
Kobilicious - Grandpa Roger's name for her
Kobo - Maxim calls her this
Capriski - another variation I made on her middle name
Peanut - Steph calls every child that is little this name.
Peanut Butter - Steph again just a more formal name of Peanut
Kid Capri - I use this one once in a while...it is also the name of a rapper from the '80s
KG - I like the Celtics so every once in a while I give her the Kevin Garnett
Capri - if I call her this in public nobody knows who I am talking to
Bug - Steph calls her this when she wants her to do something
Meatball - Her Uncle Brad started this one...and she loves it.
Beaner Buns - Another one of Stephs
KoKo Bean - Steph
Bean Dip - Steph (I am starting to wonder if Steph ever calls her Kolby???)
You might notice that Brecken doesn't have a nickname for Kolby...usually when he says her name it is really LOUD and if you would spell it out...it would look like this.
They play so well together...as gentle as a polar bear plays with a baby seal.
Happy Birthday, KOKO!
