Our little Miss Katie Bug is 1 year old. Time has sure gone fast with her. She is such a blessing in our family and we love having a little sis in our home!
Katelyn was born on September 19, 2007. My pregnancy was a little different with her than with the boys. At around 28 weeks, I found out I had Gestational Diabetes. I was devastated! Hands down, I have the biggest sweet tooth around. Well, maybe not the biggest. Perhaps a few of you might have the same problem and can sympathize with me! Anyway, because of this, they watched the size of my baby very closely. At 36 weeks, an ultrasound had shown that there were pretty good chances she wasn't going to be very tiny! A week later, after a successful induction, Katelyn Zierse made her grand entrance, all 8 pounds and 5 ounces of her!
She is such a sweet, feisty, cuddly, little firecracker! Her red hair and blue eyes attracts a lot of attention. Her hair is always a topic of conversation with strangers. She loves her pink nigh-nigh (blankie) and will cuddle and grab for it whenever she is ready for bed. She loves her big brothers and giggles with excitement when they come in the room. She plays patty cake and peek-a-boo. Her favorite book is Pajama Time. She will laugh every time it is read to her. She says Ma Ma, Da Da, eet-ta-boo (peek-a-boo) and num (for food.) She loves water and nearly jumps out of your arms at the first sight or sound of the bathtub. She has become quite the little walker. She wanders around the house looking for any new adventure. One of her favorite games is to get a cup or bowl, or any container really, and stick objects in and out of it. She can sit there for what seems like forever sometimes, just putting in and dumping out her little treasures! She has the loudest scream imaginable! It isn’t a cry, just a loud, high pitched, scream. I guess she wants to make sure we all remember she’s around.
I have definitely had such a fun time having a little girl. Picking out her outfits, making bows, and other girly things, has been so much fun!
Happy 1st birthday, Katelyn, Katie, Kate, Katydid, Katie Bug, Little Red. We love you to pieces!!
