Katie can point to her belly and her nose. I swear she is so smart. She has been having fun crawling around outside lately. I think we are going to get her a kitchen for Christmas. She has lots of fun pulling out everything under our cabinets so I think she will love to have her own.
So I think I have changed my mind about getting the kitchen for Christmas. I think Katie will be too little for it this year, maybe next year.
Katie has been taking some steps this week. When I put her a little bit away from me she will take about 3 steps to me and then fall forward. Last night she was walking between me and Fred. It probably will not be long now before she takes off.
Katie has been sick since Sunday. She ran a fever Sunday, Monday and some of Tuesday. Monday night was a rough night. Her skin was so hot. Her temp got up to 103.5. I felt so bad for her. We put her in a warm bath two times on Monday night to try to get her fever to break. We kept giving her Tylenol every 4 hours or so. All she was doing was sleeping. We took her to the doctor on Tuesday morning just to rule out an infection or anything else. She said it was just a virus because she ears and throat were clear. She said if the fever was still there on Friday to come back to see her. She said the fever could last up to 5 days. Tuesday afternoon the fever seemed to go away but Katie has still not felt well. She has hardly been playing. She has been taking very long naps and has been clingy. You can just tell she has not felt good. She also has not been eating very much but she is drinking ok so I am not too worried about that. She is finally today playing a little bit. She seems to get worn out easy. I guess it will take a while for her strenght to build back up.
Katie has been saying a few new words lately. She can say mimi, paw paw and ball. Ball sounds like ba most of the time. She is still not walking fully but is taking 4 or 5 steps at time then she starts to crawl. She is so funny, she just does the funniest things all the time. She talks all the time. She dances whenever she hears music, its so cute. She has been staying at my ILs on Saturday night for the last few weeks and she seems to have a great time. They love that girl so much. They moved her up to the toddler room at the YMCA. I think she is going through a bit of a separation phase right now so she whines when I leave her but she gets over it fast. When I go back to get her she is just playing and doesn't seem to want to leave.
Well Katie is 15 months old now and officially is walking. All this week she has been getting better and better with it. I am just so proud of her. She looks so proud of herself when she takes off. Last night we were at the ILs and she was walking in the kitchen and she fell and then for the first time she stood up all by herself without pulling up on something. It was nice that Fred and I both got to see that for the first time. Now she has been doing it everytime. Its like something just clicked and now she is everywhere. Its so cute to see her walking after seeing her crawl for the longest time. She is just getting so big so fast.
Katie got her seventh tooth in. The bottom second one on the left. She is getting so much better at walking now. She is just so cute walking around. You can tell she is just so proud of herself for it too. She has also learned to say night night. She loves to watch CMT too. She just loves music and dances everytime she hears it.
Well I am done breastfeeding. I nursed Katie on Christmas night and I think it was time for us to be done. I was preparing myself for it but it is still a little bitter sweet to me. It just means she is growing up so fast. I am really proud of myself for nursing her for 15 and a half months. When I first started I wasn't sure we would make it but we stuck to it. I am proud to say she has never had one drop of formula. I feel like I have given her the best start to life as I could. She went right to sleep last night so I know it didn't bother her to stop.
Katie got another tooth. The second bottom one on the right. That makes a total of 8 teeth for her.
Katie got yet another tooth in. Her first molar, its on the top right. I didn't even know it. She has been fine, not really cranky with it at all. What a big girl she is becoming.
Katie is getting her second molar in, the top left this time. She has been chewing on anything she can get her hands on.
