To say the very least...there is never a dull moment when Kate is around. She is a little firecracker that knows how to take charge and is way too smart for anyone's good. But man, she is the cutest little thing you'll ever lay eyes on when she's in a good mood. This little girl finally got her "big girl bed." She is very proud of it and now everything has to be big (forks, drinks, car seats, whatever...) because she's not a baby anymore.
After her first night of being in the big girl bed she tip-toed into out bedroom the next morning and said "Surprise!" She was so pleased. Typically in the mornings she would yell as loud as she could from her crib "I want to get out! Hurry Mom!" over and over until I came. It's a nice change.
Yesterday we had the kids SEP's at the school to meet with their teachers and have them tell me how awesome they are. I already knew all that. When we were talking to Josh's teacher, Mrs. Perry, Kate interrupts and says, "Mrs. Perry! Guess what? I know how to spell muffin. A-O-J-S." Mrs.Perry was impressed and asked how old she was. "I'm 2 but my birthday is in February. I'm going to have a birthday cake. Right now it's my dad's birthday but I'll be in February. I know how to spell 'covered' too! S-A-J-O." This continued on throughout the whole meeting and Mrs. Perry thought Kate should jump right in to 5th grade. She'd show those 5th graders a thing or two. Then as were were walking out the door she said, "Mrs. Perry, the other day I said "Gosh!"" (but imagine it Napoleon Dynamite style) Well, we were all laughing so hard, including the people next in line.
But what can you do when all that comes out of this little face? Oh how I love that girl!
