Kate won't be 15 months old until Sunday, but she is talking so much that I thought I would keep a record of all the words she can say at this age.
Dada (mostly becoming daddy now)
Granddad (pronounced DaDad)
B for Brian
Up (my favorite right now)
Lulu (a.k.a. Lulu's Shoes, Kate's favorite book)
Grover, Ernie, Bert, Big Bird, Zoe, Elmo, Abby, Cookie Monster, Oscar, Count
Slide, usually accompanied by "Weeeeeee"
All done (after finishing a meal, a book, or a drink)
Eebee (children's tv character)
I feel like I'm missing some, which I probably am, but I'll update if I think of more. She's growing up so fast. Losing the dada that is now becoming Daddy is sort of sad. Since I'm off this summer, I've been trying to ween her off some things I know she doesn't need anymore. We've been bottle free since Saturday night...HUGE accomplishment. The pacifier will be the next to go, but I'm not quite ready for it yet. With each of these milestones, a small part of her baby-ness is leaving. However, the new milestones she's hitting are just as exciting as when she smiled for the first time.
Now, if only the walking part would come. I'm ready, Lance is ready, she's not. She'll take several steps walking back and forth between us, but won't do it on her own. She's very content with crawling. I know it will come with time, but at times it would be easier if she could run around outside in the backyard and just play. I know she would love it!

We had a VERY fun filled weekend in the pool. Kate swam in Grandmother and Granddad's pool for the first time this year, and it was a much better experience that last summer. She just cried last year. This year (after a little warm-up), she LOVED the water. Sunday, since we don't have a big pool, we set up Kate's turtle pool in the front yard and let her play in the water. She was fascinated by the man mowing the lawn across the street and kept saying "Hi guy!". She was getting frustrated that he wasn't paying her any attention. I think we have an attention hoarder on our hands!
Last year...not feeling the swimming pool.
This year, much better!
Serious about the pool float.
Her favorite part of swimming was floating to Grandmother for a piece of ice.
Here's the turtle pool we put in our front yard.
Mmmmm, sucking on a squirt toy and drinking water hose water....yum!
She LOVED playing with her stacking cups in the water.
It was a wonderful weekend. I see many more swimming dates in the future!
