Keeping up with Kate

I totally think this blog needs to be re-named because it is all about Kate. I guess that's what happens when you have kids. It's no longer about us or our wants. I enjoy buying her new clothes and shoes instead of buying them for me these days. Don't worry I won't turn into that mom who only wears baggy sweats and ponytails!

Anyway! This really is all about Kate and I want to share the latest with all her fans out there! Kate went to her doctor this morning for her year check up. [side note: I'm still in shock that she's one!] Going to Kate's pediatrician is always something that I look forward to. I know that sounds crazy but the woman is amazing and such a joy to be with. She is a genius when it comes to babies and children. She is a huge reason why Kate is here and healthy. She helped save her life last October when she was so sick. We will always be so thankful for Dr. Patel. We chatted a while and caught up this morning and she was so amazed by Kate and how advanced she is. I was and am still beaming at the compliments she gave our girl. Kate was very talkative with Dr. Patel, she even clapped for herself at the end of her exam.
Here are her one year stats:
Height: 30 inches tall which means she is now in the 75% percentile
Weight: 21 pounds which means she is in the 25% percentile
Everything is perfect, she is thrilled with how she is growing and said that we will have a long and lean girl on our hands. She also said that Kate is extremely smart and that we have a little genius on our hands. I believe it. The kid is amazing. She loves books, she loves to talk, she's very tentative, if you ask her to bring you something she will.
Kate has 8 teeth and is working on a couple more right now. She is still an excellent sleeper. She takes two naps a day which are both an hour or more and is still sleeping 10-12 hours a night.
We are so thrilled and so proud at the little lady Kate is becoming. I fall in love with her more everyday. Her new favorite thing is to give hugs. She comes running to snuggle in your chest and then usually ends up sitting in your lap. We are going to be weaning her from formula in the next month or so and start her on whole organic milk. Which means all her bottles will soon be going bye bye :( All of her burp cloths got packed up this morning :( It's amazing how fast they go from tiny newborns, to infants and now a toddler who is 1 and going on 11.
Enjoy a few snap shots of our girl from yesterday.
She loves her photo shoots! ha!
