2 year picture

I took Kate this morning to get her 2 year picture made. This is the only one we purchased. I wish the background wasn't blue...but I think Kate looks super cute!


Seriously???

I put Kate down for a nap yesterday around 1...and at 3:30 had not heard a peep out of her. I went to check on her and this is what I found...


Seriously? I NEVER heard even a peep out of her that whole time. Usually if she gets out of bed I can hear her playing...but not yesterday.

I know she didn't just get out of bed and immediately fall asleep on the floor because she was not ready to wake up from her nap.
This little stinker is so sneaky. Part of me doesn't care that she sleeps on the floor...the other part of me hates that she is being disobedient.

2 year stats and Peanut Butter

Today Kate had her 2 year old doctor appointment. She is a healthy growing girl!

Her stats are:
Head: 18.8 (75%)
Weight: 33 lbs 10 oz (100%)
Height: 36.3 inches (100%)
Our pediatrician keeps saying Kate is going to be over 6 feet tall. I guess only time will tell.

I have been waiting to try peanut butter til after this appt. Our Dr. said it should be fine so this afternoon Kate had her first Peanut Butter.

"That's Peanut Butter"

Checking out her PB cracker...

YAY! I survived my snack...

Kate is 2...tomorrow!

Kate turns 2 tomorrow. But since Sundays are always so crazy we decided to celebrate her today. So we pretended like today was her birthday and had a KATE DAY!

We started the day with chocolate chip pancakes...a family favorite.

Kate blowing out her candles after we sang "Happy Birthday..."

Saying "all done" after she blew them out...
Ready to dig in...

After breakfast I took Kate to play while Daddy prepared his lesson for tomorrow. It was raining outside so we went to Chick-fil-A...



When we got home, Kate got to open presents from Mommy and Daddy...

Kate's Mr. Potato Head...

that you can also make into a "Glamour Spud..."
Kate is really into buckling right now. I found this "Buckley Boo Monkey" so she has been buckling and unbuckling all afternoon...


After Kate's nap we went to Chuck E. Cheese. We were so excited to take Kate for the first time. We had a birthday coupon for 20 free tokens. When we got there it was super crowded. Kate rode a few rides...

But she was mostly just interested in putting tokens in the machine. We would put a token in and before the ride or game even started she would say, "more."
We used all our tokens and then came home and ate dinner and cookie cake. Kate asked to open more presents. We had a great KATE DAY!

Open!

Kate has gotten to open a lot of presents over the past week. Before, a gift bag could be sitting on the floor and she wouldn't touch it. Now she sees a present and says, "op-en."

PaPa T and JuJu got Kate an "ABC Zoo"

When Daddy got home we opened gifts from her party...
She would open a gift, stop and play with it, and then say "different present..."




And we finished the day with her bath fingerpaints from Anna Lou and Graham...

It's official...Kate loves birthdays!

Kate's"2" Party

Big Orange

CC, Kate and I went to Big Orange Pumpkin Farm. I was so excited to take Kate back this year. Last year she wasn't walking and really wasn't sure what was going on. She talked about pumpkins on the way there. Right when you walk in there are animals you can feed. She walked around the corner and saw the longhorn. Her eyes got huge! She was a little unsure at first but slowly warmed up to the animals.

CC and Kate feeding the longhorn...

The sheep were really aggresive. Kate had just warmed up to feeding them and one of them nipped her finger. She wasn't a huge fan after that. She kept saying, "Hurt, Finger"

After that she would just throw the food in the direction of the animals....

We got to go on a hayride. Kate liked sitting on hay and riding a tractor...

Kate and Mommy on the hayride. It was super windy.

After the hayride we walked through the pumpkins to pick one out to take home.

"This one..."

Kate and CC...

Kate loved sitting on this little tractor...

What a fun morning at the pumpkin farm!
