springtime blizzard - march 26, 2009

We had a late March blizzard! We got close to a foot of snow!
We decided to take Kate out into the snow for a little snow day fun. She was not a huge fan of the snow but she did allow us to take a couple pictures before we headed back into our cozy house.

For Kate's birthday we got her the Fisher Price "Learning Home." It's a cute little doorway that had different things she can do on both sides. She loves to play with it... opening and closing the door, ringing the doorbell, putting mail in the mailbox, and turning the light on and off. She also likes to play peek-a-boo in the window of the door.
Here she is peaking through the door.
I just love the look on her face... pure joy and excitement!

thirteen months one week - march 17, 2009

Kate was feeling a little under
the weather for her second
Saint Patrick's Day. I did not
let that stop us from making
sure she wore her cute Saint
Patrick's Day dress!

drinking milk out of a sippy - march 11, 2009

It was a struggle to get Kate to switch over to whole milk.
It took about a month before she was a drinking only whole milk. Then of course she would refuse to drink it cold. So picky! I thought I would never see the day when she would drink her milk cold and out of a sippy cup. Then on a Wednesday afternoon when I went to pick her up from daycare she was proudly drinking cold milk out of her sippy cup! I was so thrilled I praised her up and down and made a special call to Eric to share the news! I thought for sure she would revert back to her old ways the following day... but she stuck with the sippy!
We are SO PROUD of our big girl!

Kate is busy, busy, busy!
Kate has become a very active toddler. She loves to play and explore her surroundings. She has started to take a few steps on her own! The minute she realizes she is walking she sits down. We are just waiting for the day she takes off... I have a feeling she will be running!

a silly girl - march 8, 2009

After her bath Kate was insistent on wearing her hat and mittens! We just love to watch her personality blossom and bloom every day. Each day is a welcomed surprise and adventure!

twelve months three weeks - march 3, 2009

The first time Kate tried yogurt she was not too thrilled.
Now it is one of her favorite foods!
She also enjoys feeding herself. It is so much fun to watch her try to use a spoon... many times the item she placed on the spoon has fallen off by the time the spoon reaches her mouth.
In the pictures above she decided to ditch the spoon and just use her trusty hands!
