Graduation Party, 14 months, and Almost 4!

Friday evening we had sprinkler time, what a fun way to enjoy an evening at home!

Saturday our nephew graduated from high school. We had a lot of fun at the graduation party. Katherine kept herself busy between the playground, seeing the horse, riding the golf cart, and playing with the other kids. Colin was so well behaved and had fun just walking around and playing. I didn't get any pictures at the party, too busy chasing around my kids this time! Sunday was a quite day at home, everyone was tired!

Last week Colin turned 14 months old!
Milestones for this month:
- Walking most of the time, still crawls or wants to be carried, but now gets up and walks where he needs to go
- New words - Go, Go Out, and Give
- Can give you a high - five
- Drinking more and more by sippy cup
- Has 9 teeth at last count
- Weight almost 20 pounds
- Eating more and more table foods and snacks
- Is becoming a rough and tuff boy. Likes to tackle Katherine and steam roll her. Of course she LOVES it!
My serious face

Katherine will be 4 at the end of this month. I can't believe it! Where has the time gone?? She is such a smart, creative, loving, beautiful little girl.
I remember all of her baby millstones as it they were just yesterday, her first time crawling (7 months), pulling herself up (9 months), walking (11 months), running (11 1/2 months). Everyday she amazes me with her wit, charm, and creativity. Right now we are working on writing her name, not tracing it, and writing the alphabet. Sometime in the next month, she will move into the 4 year old room at school, which is a preschool curriculum. Most of the things they want Katherine to do for the 4 yr old room, she can do, except write her own name without tracing it. It will just take a little practice, which she really isn't too interested in, but we have to try and try again!
Katherine at 14 months!
