Fun With Daddy

John caught these cutie pictures as he was taking care of Kate...

Chomping on some fake watermelon

Those oreos?  Not fake.  And yes, those are oreo remnants on her chin.

And then I caught these cutie pictures of Kate with her Daddy...

He's been waiting for her to be big enough to do this :)

9 Months Old

Kate is growing and changing so much!  All of the sudden, I feel like she's such a big girl now.  I've caught myself several times this last month, trying to stop and just soak up this season because I know it's going to be gone soon.  So thankful for it all though... 

At 9 Months Old, Kate:
  • is crawling on her hands and knees allllll over the place
  • likes to play with anything she shouldn't - remotes, phones and computers especially... which means she's learning "no" pretty well
  • loves seeing herself in pictures and videos 
  • has had 3 teeth for a month - that 4th is still hiding
  • is in 9 month clothes!  It's been awhile since her age and clothing size have matched up  :)
  • still sleeps great at night, but her naps are a bit more work now.  (Almost every nap time, she'll play in her crib for 30 mins or so before finally giving up and falling asleep - even though she's plenty tired when I lay her down.  Someone suggested that I take any toys out of her crib... yeah, there's no toys in there.  Just her bedding.  Which is apparently enough to occupy her for 30 mins, twice a day!)
  • loves trying new foods - her favorites are bananas, yogurt, toast and cheese slices
  • weighs 15.5 lbs and is 27 inches long

There's the 3 teeth!

Happy Valentine's Day!

On The Move

Kate is getting so big!  Her army crawl has become a full-on crawl now...

She loves being on the move and has entered a brand new world of exploration.  AKA - she's into ev-er-y-thing.  Here's some examples... 

Checking out the dishwasher 
She just needs a coaster
Doesn't your child suck on doorstops?
Sucking on the fireplace - don't worry, it's not on
And again with the sucking... this time the coffee table
She loves the coffee table... look how proud she is of herself  :)
This was not posed... she found an Old Navy tote bag on our floor and apparently needed to go shopping
