I just wanted to write a post with a few updates on Kate and our life in general. We have been keeping ourselves busy with work, friends, and church! The weeks are starting to pass by faster, and I am starting to get behind on my blogging and scrapbooking (that is quite an understatement....I haven't scrapbooked past Kate's 2nd month of life!)
Kate LOVES LOVES LOVES animals...but mostly dogs. She chases Chance around singing to him and trying to pet him all the time. She loves to grab his toys and run away screaming and laughing....apparently being chased is going to be a new favorite game...she has started getting a thrill out of runing away from us too! Today we went to the park (ya know... cause here in TX it is already shorts weather...and I don't know if that makes me happy or sad) and Kate threw a FIT because there were some dogs running in a big open area and I wouldn't let her go chase them. She LOVES to hug stuffed animals. She is just an animals girl. I really like that!
She has started bringing everything to us to see. Here she is coming to show me the plastic bag and camera case. I don't get it--but we have to see everything and tell her how cool it is. Again at the park today she kept giving me pieces of mulch and rocks. It isn't an entertaining game for mom....but at least she has developed a good trait--when she does put something in her mouth that isn't food (which seems to happen a million times a day! I'm pretty sure today she swallowed a few rocks that I didn't see!) she will give it to you when you ask her for it.
Kate is a huge ham. If you try to take her picture she will run away and be totally cheesy! Makes me laugh every time. She LOVES people to pay attention to her. She is totally content to hang out with other people....ALL the time. She is happier when we have company over. We had friends over for games on Friday and Kate enjoyed it as much as us I think. She thinks she is older than she is...
She also has more teeth! She has been working on her other middle top tooth (does that even make sence?) for awhile now, but not it is in and looking all cute. She is just getting so big. Sometimes it blows my mind. Oh, and I am laying the foundation to start potty training. After her baths (and sometimes before) I put Kate on her potty seat. She farted the first time I did it and I celebrated for her. She then decided that was a cool reaction and pushed out a tiny poop! Basically she and I thought that was the coolest thing ever! So now she just pushes every time she is up there. At least she is learning what is supposed to happen! I want to get her potty trained soon....whenever we decide to have another one, I want her out of diapers! If anyone has any tips PLEASE leave them. I'm up for suggestions!
Anyway--Life is really going great here. Sometimes I worry that things are TOO great... ya know how life always goes. When you think things are perfect and you get too comfy something goes wrong! Ah well-- guess I will go enjoy my perfect afternoon! Kate has only been sleeping for an hour a day lately...so my freetime is getting more scarce!
