Silly Girl

Katelynn has a cute and spunky personality. I was reminded of this yesterday morning as Jason carried Katelynn from her room to our room. He brought her into our room to see me and say Good Morning as I was getting ready for work. Jason wasn't wearing a shirt, since he was just waking up. Katelynn took a little fistful of chest hair and pulled it out. I was oblivious of this until Jason said, "Ouch!!" Then Katelynn giggled uncontrollably! I couldn't help but laugh, too!

She knew what she was doing! And, apparently, she does this often. What a spunky little princess we have!

Baby Aubrey

Today we went to visit our friends Melanie and Dale, to meet their precious daughter Aubrey. She is adorable! Katelynn had a fun time playing with Aubrey's brothers Logan and Devin. Our friend Shanna and her son Harrison were there, too! We had a wonderful time and it was a sneak peak into next weekend when we fly to Kansas City to meet Allison! :)

Never a dull moment...

9 Months

Katelynn is 9 months old! Just this week she has started nodding her head in agreement (so cute), she claps, and she waves. We have been blessed with a sweet little angel!

Last Sunday, we spent the afternoon on the Fox River, enjoying what could have been the last beautiful day. We saw some awesome fall colors and enjoyed basking in the sun on the boat. Even though that was only five days ago, it seems much longer. This week has been so busy and we've all been sick. Tuesday night was the only night I was home, so that makes things a little hectic.

We finally got our new couch for the basement, in perfect time for this weekend's Packer game! It promises to be more comfortable than the bleacher seats at Lambeau with Maggie. :(

We went to the doctor this afternoon for her 9 month check up. Dr. Hunt says she is perfect! Katelynn weighs 19 pounds, 10 ounces (66%); is 28.25 inches long (75%) and her head is 44.5 cm (66%).

She stands everywhere!

No, that isn't an optical illusion. Katelynn really is standing in her crib. When she woke up this morning, Jason went in to get her and I heard him mumble "that's the scariest thing I've ever seen." Of course, I couldn't get to the camera in time. When she woke up from her nap this morning, we got these great and scary pictures of her.

Katelynn still loves to crawl. She will follow us from room to room and she takes off whenever she wants to!

She also loves to stand and she tries to take some steps!

Here is a video from the farm last weekend:
