Big Weekend!

We didn't have any plans this last weekend, but it turned out to be a big weekend for our family.

Friday Kaitlyn started standing up and walking on her own. This was a big change from the 1-2 steps she had been taking for several weeks.

Saturday Kaitlyn got a new tooth. It is #8.

Saturday Kaitlyn tried her first casserole and LOVED it. It was chicken, rice, broccoli, and cheese. I wasn't sure she would even try it, but once she had a bite she kept eating and eating. She enjoyed leftovers Sunday too.

Saturday we took Kaitlyn swimming. She loves the water, and while she still wanted to hold onto my hand, she was walking all around the pool.

Sunday morning Kaitlyn slept in until 8:00! She normally gets up between 5:00-6:30. I woke up at 7:45 and was freaking out because I hadn't heard her yet. She woke up at 8:00 and started playing. I knew she slept well because she was giggling a lot that morning.

Sunday Kaitlyn tried goldfish crackers for the first time. Another win! This girl loves anything with cheese in it.

I wonder what will happen next weekend?

Kaitlyn is Walking!

Kaitlyn has been taking 1-2 steps on her own for a few weeks now. But I didn't really count 2 steps at a time as really walking. Today she stepped it up to the next level. First she started standing up on her own without holding onto anything. She did that at least 3 times today. And she has taken 5 plus steps multiple times, so I think we can now say she's walking.

Tired of performing, and ready for bed, I get her to go again!

The funny part was how much Kaitlyn laughed when she watched the video of her walking and crying. I played it several times for her and she thought it was hilarious!

My baby is walking!

I'm Not Sleeping!

Hugs & Kisses

I LOVE that Kaitlyn can now give me hugs! She will be playing happily by herself, turn around and see me, and crawl over to me. She will stand up and throw her arms around me in a big hug. Of course she has always cuddled with me, but now she can throw her arms around me. It makes me very happy.

Her kisses on the other hand are not so sweet. She opens her mouth wide and comes in like she is going to eat me. It is very wet, sometimes noisy, and can result in her biting me.

I guess I'll take what I can get!
