There is so much going on right now! I am currently smack-dab in the middle of two research papers. Summer school for me will finish up a week from tomorrow, and hopefully after that I'll have time for a proper post. I just felt bad because I just did Catherine's 3 month post, and the next one will likely be her 4 month post. I can't believe how fast this second part of summer is flying by. Now that I think about it, school starts 2 weeks from today. Yikes! I think I'll be ready to start back. I'm more productive when I'm working. A little more super-girl and a little less slouchy-troll.
So, apologies to all of those who so faithfully check on me! Be back soon!

three months

I wanted a 3 month picture of Cate....just one was all I needed. But it's impossible to choose; I love all of her little expressions. She's so much fun now, smiling and moving around. She can now maneuver her fist to her mouth and make loud slurping noises with it. She even used it to snack on her ribbons, as you can see above. She really likes to kick the toys on her play mat, and she'll stare at them for awhile, but she hasn't reached for them yet. She holds up her head like a pro. She likes to stand up, especially with her daddy, and he likes to hold her while she "dances."
We visited a new daycare today, and we're trying to make a final decision. It's going to be so hard to leave her; I don't even want to think about it! Say a prayer for us that we'll choose the right one for her.

I thought I'd try my hand at a little video. This is what Cate looks like when she's at her most active, all wiggly and cooing a bit.
