19 months

When did this little girl get so big?! We are loving the toddler's so much fun!! Here's the latest on our favorite girl:
  • Weighs 22 lbs (~30%tile) and is 30 inches (~10%tile) tall.
  • Is ALWAYS talking or singing. Favorite new words "Santa" and "orange." New songs "London Bridges," "We are a Happy Family,""Bingo" and "Jingle Bells."
  • Loves animals.  Especially loves to "meow" like a kitty and can now tell you that sheep say "ba." We're excited to go back to Utah and see Mistek.
  • Kate loves Christmas...the lights, the music, the decorations, Baby Jesus, and Santa! Although as previously described, prefers to view Santa from a distance.
  • Kate loves playing with her Little People nativity set. She especially loves to hold onto and say "Baby Jesus." So cute!
  • Current favorite toys...definitely adores her new shopping cart that Grandpa and Grandma had sent here to Iowa for Christmas! Loves her new bead necklaces, match box cars, and putting real boxes of pudding and canned food into her grocery cart. Still loves her ride-on-Zebra, dollhouse, and play food and microwave.
  • Has recently started wanting to help put away silverware. I'm seriously about this. Just yesterday as she pulled spoons and forks from the basket instead of playing with them she handed them to me one by one. She is my little helper!
  • Penguin is still her best friend and comes with us just about everywhere!
  • Has become a nursery pro...has gone to nursery 5 times now and is doing so well. I'm so proud of her.
  • Enjoys doing headstands.
  • Loves to knock on doors. It's so cute. She makes a fist and really knocks on a closed door and says "Dada."
  • Is beginning to give some getting ready to potty train signs...but I think we are still a ways off.
This happy, thumb-sucking, shy, toddling little girl is our pride and joy! 

A special thank you to my friend Melissa for talking these pictures...Kate is a tough subject (ie likes to run away and not smile)...but we still got some really great ones!


  1. What beautiful pictures! She is at such a fun age and doing such adorable things. And enjoy the silverware-helping phase--what great free labor :)

  2. I can't believe how grown up she is! It really is a fun stage - enjoy every second (especially those when she's in nursery)! What a doll!!

  3. From what you said about the photo shoot I thought you didn't get a single good picture... but these are great! Kate is such a sweetie! Do we have a little gymnast on our hands? I can't believe how much she has changed just in the last couple months. It blows my mind, actually.

  4. What a cute cute girl! Wish we were closer (we're so much further away now!) and could see her grow! Merry Christmas!
