10 Months

I just took some NyQuil so I am not responsible for anything I say here. I have inherited a cold from Katie, that she inherited from Marcus.

Anyway, the medicine is already kicking in and I see 2 of you now. BUT, I couldn't let another day pass with out acknowledging Katie's 10 month Birthday! It was on the 14th. Usually I take her picture in her pink chair, but that hasn't happened yet.

This is Katie at 4 months:

This is the big 10 month old attacking a strawberry:

Thankfully, I stripped her down to her diaper. She made a giant mess.

She's pretty proud of herself!

10 months is fun. She is crawling all over the place and pulling up. She says mama and dada and I think she is starting to know what they mean! Katie still has a sweet laid back personality. She will happily go to anyone, especially if that anyone is wearing a necklace!

I need to start planning the 1 year bash! I can't believe it's almost here!

And, in other news,
I finally finished painting Katie's room!
Marcus put up boards to give the room a board and batten look.

This is it with one coat of white paint. It just took a million more coats and then I was done!

I painted the top a very light blue. It looks cute. I still need to hang stuff on the wall, but I will get pictures to you soon.

OK, I am almost knocked out. Going to bed now.

She's a doll...always! I think I say that everytime but I am sure you don't tire of hearing it. ;)
I can't wait to see the finished room!

She's adorable. I used to doll my girl up with bows, etc. and am awaiting (patiently) the time when its a little grand daughter. I can't wait to see her room. I love board and batten and I helped my daughter put it up in her guest room (yep, same daughter). Reading the blogs of you young mothers makes me realize how many women are out there doing such a great job of mothering and taking care of business. There is, indeed, hope for our world.

Ugh, I just wrote a comment and it said it wouldn't post it. I was just saying how amazed I am by you and all your cute projects. I want to have a playdate soon- mostly so we can chat but the kids will have fun too! Hope you feel better!

She is just too cute, and she SO reminds me of my five year old when she was that age....her hair, her smile. :)

Look at her!!! I forgot that she was growing up just like mine. haha

He actually just ate a strawberry for the first time. How cute is she devouring that thing!? I love it. =)

Her "friend" Trent wishes her a happy 10 months! (I don't know if you remember, but they are only 4 days apart.)
