Morning Playtime

I think I may need to raise her mirror up a little. But I love that she can occupy herself, and has a great time too.

I am so thankful for our happy little girl.

First Snow Day

Kate's Grandma gave her a super fuzzy snowsuit for Christmas. And Luckily, it snowed on Christmas eve! 
Just in time for us to try it out.
After taking these pictures, and getting her back inside for a nap, it snowed harder- with bigger flakes- which would have made for better pictures. But she still got to see the snow falling. And she loves just being outside anyway.

Growing Pains

Kate is a super speedy crawler now, and has been practicing her pulling-up/walking/climbing skills for a few weeks. All that practice should make her tired and sleepy, right? Nope. Apparently babies who are learning to walk focus all of their energy on practicing this new skill and will even wake themselves up to practice (you can watch a video explaining this here).

So that explains the crappy sleep we've been having lately.

I even went in last night this morning (4am) to comfort her and as I picked her up she was trying to climb up my body. Her little legs moving like crazy!

I'm looking forward to her first steps, but scared at the same time. She's going to be everywhere and get into everything!

Baby Stybs

I'm starting this blog to serve as some sort of scrapbook for Kate. I realized that it wasn't blogging that I didn't like, it was the lack of focus I had. I really did miss writing down things that happened, or what Kate has done. So here I am, blogging again, with no expectations to post every day- or even every week, but to just write when there is something to write about.
I will not check my stats- and won't be shamelessly self promoting (spamming as adam calls it)the blog to gain followers.

I'm writing for me.

And for Kate.

(I've imported the posts about Kate from the old blog, to keep everything in one place)
