7 Months

I have LOVED having this little girl for the last 7 months. She is currently:
Rolling around the room
Trying to crawl
Uses her voice to visit
Loves her brother
Loves to eat whatever we are having
Can swing in the baby swings at the park and loves it
Called "Baby Kate" or "Baby Girl"
In the 100% for height and 87% for weight (18 pounds)
Waves to us
Is mad when a toy is taken from her
and makes us happy

A couple of days ago I was getting both kids loaded in the car. I put Kate in her car seat and went back to get Benton. As we were walking to the car Benton slipped and split his lip open. There was blood and he was quite sad about it. As I finally got him loaded in the car he turns to tell Kate the story.
K: using her sounds
B: Yeah Kate that is right I hurt my lip
K: still using her sounds
B: Yeah see right here (and shows her his swollen lip)
we keep driving towards the museum
K: still talking away
B: No Kate that is the Library not the museum
K: loving that he is paying attention to her
B: See Kate right here this is the museum where we play balls and ride the horse

I was loving this interaction. I can't wait for them to grow up together.

I love those pictures!

I can't wait to see the turn the conversations will take when Kate can talk back.

What fun!
