So Much Fun!

Belly Buttons

Katelyn's been really fascinated by her own belly button for several weeks now. She'll say "belly", pull up her shirt, and point to it. One time, right after she ate, her belly was so full that it stuck out and she couldn't find her belly button and cried.

Anyway, tonight, Katelyn and I were playing on the floor. I was lying on my side, and my t-shirt had come up a little bit too much and was showing some skin. Katelyn crawled over next to me, and with a horrified look on her face, poked her little finger inside my big, hairy belly button. Then, still with a disturbed look on her face, she quietly grabbed the bottom of my t-shirt and pulled it back down to cover everything up.

It's amazing how quickly little girls learn to be embarrassed by their daddy...

Katelyn's First Steps

Katelyn took her first steps this week while Grammy was taking care of her. Katelyn's Grammy has been working with her a lot this week while I have been at Kidlife (VBS). I just knew she would take those first steps when I wasn't around : ) I got to see her take some more steps today and she has only gotten braver as the day progressed. She is letting go of objects and our hands and just toddling off on her own. Elmo "Mo" has been a very good incentive. It is so exciting and I just can't believe she is walking! Now of course I will worry about her losing her balance and falling, but I know that is all part of learning to walk. Crash helmet anyone?
