Good-bye Clean House

It's official. We have a crawler.

Yoga Instructor

Kate has acquired so many new skills recently, one of which is yoga instructor. Kate helps me get into proper position as I do my yoga.

So Proud

I loves Kate's face here. She is so proud of her walking skills.

Self Sufficient...

Well almost. Kate had her first fully self fed meal yesterday. It was fun to watch her feed herself, but not so fun to clean up afterward. Kate is getting so big so fast. She is 9 months now. I cannot believe it. In my head it feels like she should be 3 months or something. It is all going way to fast.

Kate had her 9 month doctor visit yesterday and she is a whopping 15lb 6 oz and is 26 3/4 inches tall. She moved from the 2nd percentile to the 4th percentile on her weight, so she is practically ginormous now. Kate is loving to walk around with her "old lady walker." Last week she was immobile and now she is all over the place. Needless to say we've been baby proofing the house all week. Here are some pics of our big 9 monther.

Kate and Daddy chewing on their fingers

Kate loves Minnie Mouse. Her mother couldn't be more proud.

Practicing for the band

Kate is so proud of her new skills. It is fun to watch her get excited when she learns something new. And I'm sure the fact that she has her own personal cheering squad doesn't hurt.

I guess the holidays are over...

With much regret I have to finally admit that the holidays are over. It is, as the songs say, "the most wonderful time of the year." We had a wonderful holiday season spent with family. First Thanksgiving with the Darby clan and then Christmas with all the Lillenbergs (expect for Jaymie and family- we missed you!) More wonderful memories built. There are going to be a lot of pictures so hold tight. Here is our Christmas in pictures...

And now the count down to Christmas 2010 begins!
