Eight Months, Two Weeks, Three Days.....

I can't believe that Katelyn is 8 1/2 months old. Sometimes it is hard for me to remember what she was like as a newborn. Like Connor, she wasn't tiny for long! She is our little chubs and isn't very dainty like. She has started to show us just how big she is getting.

Katelyn has started to pull herself up into a standing position. She tries to be brave and let go, but she of course just falls over.

Here she is going for the stairs. I love the look on her face. It is like she is saying "Ha ha, come and get me!"

She has started to move around more in the tub too. She loves to get on her belly and push herself around in the water.

Katelyn likes to stand up and walk along the side to get the shower curtain. 

Today we took the kids swimming and it is apparent that we have another fish in the family. Today she kept leaning her face forward in the water and then she would lean back. The boys never liked laying back in the water at this age. Kelly would count to 3 and then blow in her face to put her under water. She would come up, blink the water away, and then give us a smile. Kelly of course would then do it again! I suppose that since we spend a lot of time in the pool, the kids better be enjoying right?

She is so cute! Abby was our chubby baby. She had the biggest chubby legs. I had to get her bigger pants just to fit around her legs. I LOVE CHUBBY BABIES! And Kaitlyn is just adorable! They do grow up fast so keep taking lots of pictures!

She is so cute. It is crazy how fast they grow up. I can't believe that my oldest is already 2 1/2 and my baby is 1 month. Time sure does fly. Makes you want to take in everyday the best you can. She is a cute little cubby baby. My 2 year old is only 26 pounds and in 24 months clothes. And my baby is still in newborn. I have tiny tiny babies. I love having everyone's blogs. I love to keep in touch!!!!

Doesn't time go by so much faster with the third? She reminds me of my kids. Al of mine were really chubby and weighed a ton!

What a cute little chub! I just want to squeeze her! I think this is the first time I've really noticed her red hair! How fun!
