Kates new milestones!

Kate has been doing some new, fun things this week and I wanted to document them!

Alex has been out of town for his Grandfather's services.  Everything happened so quick and it was just too much to embark on a 7+ hour drive (and that's 7+ hours without a baby) - especially since we will be making the drive in a little over a week for Thanksgiving - so he went on without us.

This morning, I called Alex while I was getting ready and put him on speaker.  As soon as Kate heard his voice she started smiling and cooing.  It was so cute!  I wish I had it on video!  She was so happy when her daddy got home this afternoon!

Another new thing is sitting up!  Obviously she is not sitting unassisted.  However, she will sit for about 3-5 minutes at a time only using her Bobby as support. Her core strength is amazing!  And, she looks to tiny in her boppy.

This morning we went to breakfast with my good friend Melissa!  Kate was wonderful.  And, she starting grabbing for, and holding toys today!  She has a pink poodle that hangs from her car seat that she has never been interested in. Well,  I guess it looked enticing today as she spend a solid 20 minutes play with this poodle before falling asleep!

I know these are all minor things but, it is exciting (and a bit sad) to see her growing up so much!  She is so interactive these days and I love it!

Don't downplay those milestones! They are big accomplishments for a baby her age! You have every right to be a proud mama! :-)

The baby talk is great! We will sit with Em and talk to her and she will coo and shriek back like she's having a convo! Be careful now that she sits up in that boppy, Em now flings herself forward on the couch when she is sitting in the bop! LOL

That IS exciting! Batting at toys is a huge one and I remember being really excited about that.

She is getting so big!
