A few updates...

1. Hello, teething!  She. Chews. On. Everything.  Sometimes I wonder if our sweet little girl is part goat.

2. She can hold her bottle on her own.  She does the same with her pacifier and is clear about when she does and does not want assistance.

3. Last night she watched Praise Baby very intently.  For the first time, she really studied what was on the screen.  And with the exception of her legs kicking to the music, she even laid still for the duration of several songs! 

4. She is fascinated by water.  Bath water that splashes when she kicks, water running from the faucet, Baylor lapping up water from her bowl... it's all very interesting!

5. I think Katelyn and Baylor find each other equally interesting.  Baylor curiously licks Katelyn's face, and Katelyn wonders why she does it.  Baylor has her moments (like eating a sock Katelyn somehow kicked over the crib), but for the most part she is the perfect dog to have around a baby. 

I love our little family. :)

4 Months Old

Katelyn is now 4 months old!  She is becoming a more content, happy, and lively baby.  As one stranger commented, "God may not have given her a complete arm, but He sure gave her an extra dose of personality and cuteness!"  I would have to agree.  Her eyes sparkle with curiosity and excitement about everything around her, and if she sees something of particular interest, she'll stop squirming long enough to study it intensely.

Last weekend Katelyn met her Great-Grandma Do and Aunt Kathie.  Love my sweet family!

Four Generations

Grandma, Aunt Kathie, Mom, and Katelyn

I realize now that I'm a little behind on blogging, so back up another week to Halloween.  Dave's work had a costume contest.  When we went to the store to see what costumes were available for Katelyn, Dave was quickly distracted by an adult gorilla suit.  Who knew my husband had long dreamed of owning a gorilla suit?!  Long story short, we left Target with the gorilla suit and an infant banana costume.  I'm hoping Katelyn inherits our sense of humor.  :)
