Katie had her dedication ceremony at church last Sunday. The dress she is wearing was mine from when I was a baby. My Grandpa picked it out and I am so glad it was saved and she got to wear it for this milestone in her life. We promised to raise her to be a child of God to the best of our ability with the help of God himself, our family and our friends.

Deuteronomy 4:9 "Only give heed to yourself and keep your soul diligently, so that you do not forget the things which your eyes have seen and they do not depart from your heart all the days of your life; but make them known to your sons and your grandsons.
Deuteronomy 6:7 You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.
Psalm 127:3 Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him.

Pulling to standing

Yep! She did it for the first time today-- We are SOOOO in trouble!

A whole new level of trouble!!

We got a walker for Katie this weekend, and she has figured out how to make it go. She normally just likes to pull on my computer, but I had to get pics of her with the video game controlller, and finding new things to get into!

Feeding myself puffs


Here is the baby girl feeding herself puffs. We just realized that she could do this yesterday.
I also noticed her other front bottom tooth coming in this morning. I tried to get a shot of it and the other tooth since I didn't get the best picture last time, but she is just not forthcoming about showing off her teeth.

We hung out with Bryson this afternoon-- here is a cutie of him and his spoon, them playing together, him at the l&l house-- and a few pics of me and Katie that I liked from a few days ago:

They were being little chatterboxes, but of course stopped talking back and forth when the camera came out. Katie gave a nice little soliloquy though

1st swimming lesson

We had our first swimming class today. It was a lot of fun, and Katie did really well. She had the kicking part down pat! She cried when we dunked her underwater, but I am sure she will get used to it. She did the best at chasing after the toys-- the reach and pull. I am going to have to find her some for our pool and for the bath.
On another note-- I went up to get her from her nap yesterday and found her sitting up in her crib! So, as I suspected, she is able to do it, just usually too lazy or dependent to do it on her own.

First time in the pool

We took Katie to the pool today for the first time. It opened up today and we wanted to take her and go for a dip. She splashed around for a bit and seemed to have a good time.
Here's a video:

And some pictures:
