Amazingly enough, Kate is eleven months already! Of course, plans for the big birthday shindig are well underway, but until we get there, we have three fun bits of Kate's growing up to share with you. This morning, I put her down for her morning nap and went downstairs. A few minutes later, I was surprised to hear music coming from her room. I snuck back up to check on her and saw she had pulled herself up enough to turn on the aquarium toy in her her crib. She was so proud of herself and kept turning it on and off until finally, she settled down to sleep.
Secondly, while I was feeding her, she reached for a card on the table. I said, that's an anniversary card from Aunt JoAnn. Immediately, she looked over my shoulder to the fridge where we have a picture of Aunt JoAnn. (She loves the pictures on the fridge and wants to look at them each time we enter the kitchen.) So Aunt JoAnn, she knows where to find you!
Finally, we were over at a good friend's house this afternoon. Kate was tooling around on the kitchen floor and was passing the fridge. She stopped and said, quite clearly, "da da da da." I looked more closely at the collection of pictures on the fridge and there, indeed, was our family Christmas picture, where she found her daddy. I was amazed. She is growing right before our eyes.
Enjoy this video of her crawling and playing with mom.
(P.S. Yes, the gate on the stairs is open...thankfully, she didn't notice!)
