I absolutely cannot believe that we are working on planning a first birthday party for Kate. It has just flown by! I am amazed daily at how much she changes and learns. She is so smart, and I am always surprised by how much she remembers and understands! 

 

This month she learned to:
Perfect the hiney scoot
Walk while holding on to furniture, a push toy, or someone’s hands
Stand for a few seconds on her own
High five
Explore more words and sounds
Express herself when something doesn’t go her way (basically she learned to throw a little fit)
Eat ice cream! (just a little teeny bit!) 
Take more of an interest in other babies
Open cabinets and drawers
Do the “motions” to “Open Them Shut Them”
She now has 6 teeth (4 on top, 2 on bottom)

Mama
