Slow Down Baby Kate!
In the last few weeks our baby Kate started MOVING! I guess at almost 8 months, we should be looking for these milestones. It is fun to watch, but also sad as I have enjoyed her as a BABY soooo much. When Ethan and Luke are running circles around me, I just hold and cuddle her and then she gives me a BIG gummy smile and a coo! I love that!!! Guess we'll just have to have another one!! JUST JOKING, don't go spreading rumors now!!! "How do you solve a problem like Maria?" or maybe princess Leia. However you see it, it sure is cute! She just finished gumming a banana to death in this picture and you would not believe the front of her dress - this is how it ended up. The boys thought it was pretty funny!
All 4's!!!??? What??
When did this happen? If she starts running circles with the boys, I don't know what
I'll do!
The sink is where she hangs out after her bath. I throw all 3 youngin's in the tub at the same time. Ethan helps me hold her while I give her a quick scrub. Then I wrap her in a towel and plop her in the sink to coo happily while I scrub the boys.
Not anymore! The little worm squirms out of the towel and wants OUT of that sink!

On a ride with Luke! Grandma thought this little basket on the back would be great for transporting little toys...or Kate!

We've been enjoying the nice weather. Here is Kate trying to figure out what this grass stuff is and why her legs are itching!

I am thankful for a healthy, growing baby, but I can't believe how FAST the months are flying by!! I guess I will have to hold her more tomorrow!

I vote you have another one! :) Kate is so adorable and getting so big. I loved looking through her pictures. Last night Ben and Abby Hyink were at our church visiting - they had no clue we were there. It was fun to catch up with them and meet their kids.

Sweet Kate. She's beautiful. I'm glad you have a little girl in your life! It's funny that you joked about having another one. Jason told me about the conversation he and Ben had about adding a #4 to our families- how we wives wanted one more and they DID NOT! ha! I'm all for it! We'll see... wish we could get our families together- maybe some day.

I guess I will have to hold her more tomorrow -- that was a great reminder for me.

It's a good thing you added the "just kidding" to the suggestion of #4 because I thought we made a pact at Becky's that the three of us wouldn't have any more children before the next T4S. :-)

Kate is absolutely adorable! I love the pictures of her big eyes.

Krista is also getting up on all fours and rocking, but she hasn't started the belly crawl yet like Kate had mastered when we saw y'all so who knows when she will be on the move more than scooting backwards and rolling.

Oh and too bad the sink thing is over -- that worked so well!
