Kate @ 9 Months

She weighs a solid 16 lbs and is 26 inches long.

I love her little ears! She reminds me of an elf :)
 Kate is very observant. She is not scared of new people, but she does take a few minutes to just watch and try to figure people out when we're in an unfamiliar environment.
Ever since she was born she has had the most expressive eyebrows.

She crinkles her nose when she feels like she's being funny and she presses her lips together and blows air to make a sound like an elephant.

I always wish that I could get her true personality on camera, but every time I try, she is just more interested in the shutter sound!

It's ok though because you can't convey in a photograph the way her babbling sounds or how she giggles when I toss a blanket over her face for peek-a-boo.
A picture will never show how she growls in excitement at the dogs or how she wiggles her little toes constantly,

the way she haphazardly squeals for things she wants, sticks her feet up on the tray of her high chair,

how she taps on everything to hear the noise they make, or the way she very seriously stares at the dogs when they bark at nothing and turns her head away when Margo kisses her on the cheeks.

Awwww, puppy loves!!
I'll never be able to explain how cute it is when she looks at me and laughs, mouth wide open with the happiest grin I have ever seen!
Katherine is so patient and happy. Nothing seems to bother her. I put her in the jogging stroller for the first time on Wednesday so that we could go out on a run and she didn't mind at all.
Kate loves oatmeal for breakfast. She feeds herself puff treats, teething cookies and veggie crunchies.
Katherine is still taking 3 naps a day, plus sleeping all through the night. We've tried cutting out naps, but she really likes them and sleeps well! Happy sleeper = happy growth.
We're also pretty sure that Katherine is growing up to believe she is a dog.

That is definitely Margo's chewy bone in her mouth.
She has her moments of fussiness, but for the most part she is really easy going. We love visiting daddy at his work for lunchtime picnics!

And even though she likes to pull her bows off so that she can take playtime more seriously,
she is always going to be our little girl and we just can't get enough of her!

She is so cute!! I love her fluffy hair. I laughed when you said you think she is growing up believing she's a dog.

The blocks you guys made are amazing!! All that effort paid off!
