These Past Couple of Weeks....

have been crazy busy and have flown by!! We have had lots of family in town and a billion things going on. I will try to recap these couple of weeks with some cute photos:
How's this for irony? I have finally learned my lesson. I cannot leave anything remotely near Katelynn when she is in the tub.

Uncle Kris was in from Chicago. We got to hang with him for a few days.

Aunt Julie and Auntie Em were in town and went to Okarchefest with us. I think they were picking out a baby goat to take home with them.

This is exactly what Sundays are for...Church then naps!!

And then working hard at pushing the highchair around.

Then we update our status on Facebook.

We ate "real" bananas for the first time. As you can see, K even liked the peel! Not really, but it was a lot of fun to play with.

And tonight she feel asleep with the remote in her hands. (She is her father's daughter!!)

Football is starting this weekend so hopefully we will be bringing you some OU Katelynn pretty soon. We are having so much fun with Katie Bug. She is getting so big. We miss that little baby but are enjoying our little girl!!

9 Months

Katelynn Noel turned 9 months last Friday. She is getting so big and growing up so fast. She is crawling like a pro and pulls herself up on just about everything. She wants to take off walking but we are just not there yet. At her wellness check-up she weighed 17lbs 4oz and was 27 1/4" tall. She didn't gain a pound between her 6 and 9 month check-up but the doctor said that was fine because she is so much more mobile and is getting taller.

She loves to eat. We have been giving her bits of table food which she LOVES but we have to be careful because she still doesn't have any teeth. She loves grapes, noodles and animal crackers! She crawls all over the house. Sometimes setting out on her own to explore, other times trying to find either Mama or Dada. She waves goodbye and loves to point. She points at everything. We keep trying to tell her it's rude, but she is so cute, we let her get away with it. Katelynn is our little waterbug. She loves her baths and enjoys the pool. Next year, we won't be able to keep her out of it.

She is so much fun to be around. She is getting a little personality, sometimes it's sweet, sometimes it's a little feisty. Either way, we love her tons and wouldn't have it any other way.

We love you Katie Bug! You are our precious gift and we are so glad that you are ours.

Nanaw's Little Helper

Katelynn decided to help Nanaw Mickie with the laundry yesterday. She looks like she is really enjoying it. Let's just hope that this is something that she will enjoy doing for years to come. =)

Beautiful Bathing Bateman

We had our Sunday School Social last night and we all went swimming. We had such a great time. Spending good times with great friends and some good grub. K went officially swimming for the first time. OK, so she has been in her little pool quite a few times but last night Brian took her into the big pool and under water. She really enjoyed it. She enjoyed just chillin' in the water. That's our little Water Bug!!
