The rest of February

These pictures were taken by me one lazy afternoon. The dress that KEA is wearing was mine and my sister's when we were little. Rae, my neice, had pictures in it when she was about 1 year and now it was K's turn. My sister is about to have another little girl in May and we will see if the tradition continues. :)

We were getting ready to go to a baby shower for a really good friend of mine from high school. KEA looked so cute in the dress, I couldn't pass up the chance to share!

KEA's first Valentine's Day! She loved playing with the heart shaped boxes that the candy came in from the kids at school. We had a family Valentine's lunch at Newk's and then ran some errands, nothing too big. We played at home and just enjoyed our time being together.
What can I say, I love my family... :)

Little Miss Mischievous

Yes, she has a sock in her mouth...this is how she carries things when she crawls. It's too funny to see, expecially when things are too big!

Showing off her musical talents in the kitchen with pot lids and wooden spoons.

What a "ROCK STAR!"

My sweet and happy little princess.

K is definitely taking off! She is getting into everything now and picking up speed! The last few weeks, she has shown us a different side of her personality...the mischievous side! If we say "no ma'am," she goes directly for it (whatever it is) and says "uh, uh" or "nah, nah" (no, no) because she knows she isn't supposed to. If we say "yes" or put things in front of her that she can have, she doesn't want anything to do with it! Typical, huh!?

She has started saying a few more sounds and is beginning to communicate through sign, as well as her typical baby babble. She isn't walking yet, but becoming more and more daring each day. She is fearless lately. K will jump out of your arms or dive on to a bed/couch without warning. She is attempting to crawl up the steps (which means time to really baby proof the house). The cats have realized that they can no longer lay down in sight of her because she will head straight for them and find something to grab or rip out ;). She's a mess, but I LOVE her more and more with each passing day. Having a child has definitely changed my perspective on some things and made me appreciate life (and all that comes with it) even more.

We finally finished the playroom, with the exception of the TV and stand. We haven't found what we are looking for just yet, but hope to have it soon. We decided not to paint the walls and use the flower decals instead, just in case we have another child and need that room. I would hate to paint another room pink and have a little boy. ;) K loves playing in her new room! Plus, it makes her room and our living room a lot neater with all the toys out of there.
