Oh Catherine, my Catherine. It has been a month of highs and lows. We had two glorious weeks of a baby who slept through the night, loved to be able to move around, and was constantly happy and giggly. Then the all-too-familiar ear infection set in once again. She's currently recovering, but it takes soooo long to get back into our sleeping routine.
Cate can now crawl with alarming speed, and she pulls up on everything. She likes to "cruise" along the yellow couch because it's just the right height to help her walk. She will rarely eat actual baby food; she'd much rather have little pieces of whatever we're having. It's fun to watch her feed herself because she does it with such intensity. Like most people in my family, she's serious about her food. She is constantly babbling "da da" and "ma ma." We also think she may mean that she wants a bottle when she says "na na." She claps for herself and plays patty-cake.
She loves to take a bath (and much to her mother's dismay, she also enjoys drinking the bath water) but she hates putting on her pjs.
It's so much fun to have such an interactive baby! It just keeps getting better the more she learns and the more we can play together!
