Kathryn's Little Steps

A very, very short (and sideways) video of Kathryn walking, for her Nana, who has yet to see it! (Since it is video from our digital camera and not a camcorder, I can't change the direction of it. So sorry! It's not long enough to give you a neck ache, though :o).

Kathryn's Toy Box

Many, many thanks to Adam and Rosie, who found us this treasure at a garage sale on Saturday... Kathryn's new toy box. Unfortunately for her (and fortunately for us) she cannot yet reach inside, but she does love to get inside and play. How much fun would it be to be 11 months old again?

Mommy & Kate on Mother's Day!

No one could have ever told me how wonderful (and tiring :o) being a mother could be.

Playing in/eating the dirt

I think I see now why she wasn't hungry for lunch! Thirty minutes after we came in she spit out two pieces of mulch. Yum, yum!

Both of my babies are sick!!!

...One with strep throat and one with an ear infection. Our house is pathetic right now. Nurse Mommy is working around the clock (with quite a bit of help from Dad...)

It's a Girl!!!

EDIT: My Dad said this picture kind of reminded him of some of the pictures that he saw of Hurricane Katrina a while back :o). I just thought I would clarify: this is a profile shot of the baby's face.

We're going out tonight!

This is a really good depiction of how our day has been today... I think I have five strands of hair left. Any babysitting volunteers?

Kathryn's First Car

We bought Kathryn her first car at the garage sale last Saturday for $2. All she wants to do now is drive. I think she's going to be like her Aunt Hannah, though. She can't make turns very well :o). We are afraid it has helped her a little too much. She actually took her first steps yesterday!!! Four of them! You'll never guess what she was headed for - golf balls! Figures! Brad was so excited about that :). This is just a short video this time...

Kathryn in the Garden

Just a few more sweet pictures for Gramma and Nana!

Gross Dishwasher Story

Kathryn's favorite thing to do in the kitchen is to play in the dishwasher. She LOVES to pull all of the silverware out of the holder and bang them around on the dishwasher door. When they are dirty, I still let her do this, even realizing the unsanitariness (wd?) of it (mostly because it is a nice, quiet way of getting dinner fixed). Well, this was the last straw. I had left the room for a second, and when I came back, I noticed that she had her head down, drinking the water (and bits of food) from the dirty dishes that I had just partially rinsed off. Being in the state that I'm in, I nearly threw up right then and there. She thought it was absolutely hilarious! The pictures do not even do justice to the look she had on her face when I caught her. The good news is, she is still alive and well...

Rosie's Shower Pics

My only excuse is that this is the third time I have tried to write this post, and each time my computer has shut down and NOT saved all of my hard work. As a result, three weeks later, the story is lost, but here are the pictures that go along with it :o). Mostly I just wanted my Mom and sisters to get to see!!! Enjoy!
