Christmas: Part 2

We had a good Christmas. We spent time with both sides of the family and had a great time...

Emma, Cassidy, and Katelyn in the cutest dresses ever!

with the cast of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse... x3

waiting patiently to open presents

Playing with Katelyn's new piano 

She put a LOT of miles on this car!

playing with blocks with Uncle Joey (whose name she has learned to say)

Pierson, Katelyn, and Annabelle watching the snow begin to fall.

Sitting with Granddad. This picture makes me laugh because it shows Katelyn and Annabelle's nighttime personalities: Katelyn ready for bed and Annabelle WIDE awake.

Reading Katelyn's favorite book, "I Love You Through and Through."

On another note, Katelyn's vocabulary is increasing. It's clear that she understands everything we tell her, but it seems she waits to say new words until she's confident. You can see the wheels turning in her head, like she's mentally rehearsing how to say a word. And when she's ready, she whispers it first. As she gains confidence, her volume increases until she says it loud and proud! Some recent words: tortilla, broken, pocket, broccoli, Christy, and Kathie. Can't believe she is almost 18 months old!
