forty-eight weeks - january 11, 2009

Kate got her first black eye this week.
She had rolled into a shelf at daycare.
Luckily lots of love, kisses, and TLC made it all better!
If she is anything like her daddy or mommy I am sure this will be the first of many boo boo's to come!

Eleven Months!
Wow!
Kate has grown by leaps and bounds this month.
She has mastered the "army crawl" and has started to scoot away from Eric and I. The best thing is she will wave good-bye to us before she takes off... at least she gives us a little warning.
Kate has also started to "cruise." She will walk while holding on to her doll stroller or a box. She seems quite proud of herself! At times it is all she wants to do.
I have also seen her stand on her own without any support for a second or so.
It is amazing to watch Kate develop and grow from a sweet little baby into a warm-hearted little girl.

forty-seven weeks - january 4, 2009

It was wonderful to spend the past two weeks being a full time mom!
We enjoyed the holiday season with both family and friends.
We also did a lot of reading.
Kate's daycare challenged each family to read 25 books over the break.
Being a primary teacher I was determined to meet the challenge!
Kate's love for books and being read to made the challenge easy
for both Eric and I. As this break comes to a close I am already looking forward to the next one!
