Eleven month old Katie Bubble... that's just nuts!
Katie is now a walker. She walks everywhere, climbs up and down the stairs, and is letting her personality shine. She's still physically so little that it surprises me how much she can do! She's started giving 5's and waving bye-bye. She babbles baby talk all the time, and says "boo!" (more like just makes the B sound) when she plays peek-a-boo. She will imitate motions and sometimes even sounds too. What a big girl!
The other day Katie heard the bathtub running for Lee and Anna. She loves bathtime more than anything. She hears the water and comes as quickly as she can. So on Wednesday when she heard it, she immediately went in. I was keeping an eye on her, but also scooping cookie dough, when I heard a splash and Katie was kind of spluttering. I ran down there and she'd climbed in the tub--clothes, diaper, and all! At first she didn't like that she got some water on her nose, but then she broke into a big grin as if to say, "Look how smart I am!" I had already given her a bath that day too. Oh well. She loves baths, she can have two a day if it makes her happy.
She still doesn't laugh much--just smile and kind of squawk. I wonder if it will always be like that, or if she'll ever figure out how to get a good ol' belly laugh out? hm. Only time will tell. But usually she's a happy girl, unless she is sick or teething. Or if you're trying to feed her baby food. She doesn't like baby food. She likes to eat what everyone else is eating.
And that's Katie! I am astonished at how quickly she is growing up. We love her sweet little bald head and her wobbly "zombie" walk and her bumpy little teeth and her sniffy nose and the way she blows raspberries and says "sss sss sss" and everything about her. We love you, Katie!
