Katelyn's first Thanksgiving went well.  We traveled to Mississippi to visit the Taylor family, and quite honestly, I was dreading the 10 hour drive with a baby.  But Katelyn surprised us and, for the most part, did VERY well in the car!  We spent some quality time with Papa and family and she started crawling for the first time on Thanksgiving Day.  Watch out, world!

Here is she playing with a toy in the car.  It was a little too big to grip with one hand, so she is cleverly using her left foot to assist.  Flexible little problem solver!

Katelyn has had a nasty cough that wasn't getting better and her breathing just didn't sound right, so I took her to the doctor.  Since allergies and asthma run pretty rampant in our family, the doctor prescribed a nebulizer since she'll need it eventually anyway.  The challenge is getting Katelyn to sit still long enough to successfully take a treatment, but there's a significant improvement in her breathing.

Katelyn at the doctor.  I had to take this photo quickly because our little goat was determined to eat the paper.

We've also started adding rice cereal to her milk.  She immediately took to eating from a spoon, which didn't surprise me since this baby loves to put things in her mouth.  I expected it to help her sleep through the night... so far, no luck.  Maybe someday (yawn).


  1. Why sleep when there is so much to see and do? I'm so glad she's breathing better!

  2. FYI, if she eats paper, it's okay. It's just fiber and will poop out nicely. Not that MY daughter ate paper or anything... :)
