Katherine – 12 Months







Our precious little girl is a year old!!! It seems like we have just recently finished the “toddler phase” with Noah, and now we are embarking on it again! We fall more and more in love with her each day, and are just in awe of how blessed we are to have this sweet, loving, and often spunky, little princess in our lives!

This month she learned to:
Walk confidently while holding on to furniture
Stand for a little longer on her own
Bend down to pick things up while standing
Make a pouty face (and oh my goodness it’s adorable!) 
Explore more words and sounds
Give hugs, especially to baby dolls and our cats
She now has 7 teeth (4 on top, 3 on bottom)

Things she says:
Noah (I’ve heard it once or twice or at least something similar!) 
Lots and lots of motor/buzzing sounds…constantly! 



Her favorite things this month:

Playing the piano
Playing with remotes or anything with buttons
Facetime and getting to hold the iPad or iPhone
