Today you are 45 weeks old, Katy! Your first birthday will be upon us before we know it! I've actually already gone out and bought some decorations for your Cookie Monster themed first birthday.

This past week was all about Christmas, family, good food and presents.

We attended the Northland Christmas Eve service via Internet last Thursday, December 23, 2010. Grandma and Pop-Pop Tinkey were in attendance in Orlando and we were able to see them when they panned the crowd. They even announced to the congregation that we were joining them via Internet from Concord! It was neat to be able to "attend" church with family.

Nana and Grandpa Jones were here late Thursday evening but didn't get to play with you, Katy, until Christmas Eve Day. Uncle Rob and Aunt Julie also came on Christmas Eve Day. Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Day were spent at home, relaxing, enjoying each others company, eating good food and opening presents (separate blog post).
On December 26, 2010, we piled into the car and went to the Charlotte Motor Speedway to see the Carolina Christmas light show. There were all sorts of lights set up and various vendors and Christmas trees to see. The night was quite nippy, so the Living Nativity was not going on. You were very good for the outing, Katy.

With the help of your singing, walking Dino from Santa, you've been getting around more. You walk behind Dino, Katy, and move from room to room with ease. You do tend to veer to the right, but you have managed to get up on your own, steer and back up. You are much, must steadier on your flat little feet. You will take a couple of steps if you are holding onto something or somebody. We have yet to see you walk on your own, though there were several "almost" instances this past week.

You slept in your crib more, this week- sleeping for parts of nights and for several naps in your crib. This is a major accomplishment as you've been very bad about this for the past two months and Daddy and I have been lax in enforcing it. Rather, we've just been exhausted. With the onset of a new cold- thanks to some shared germs at Christmastime- our crib sleeping victory is temporarily short-lived. We are not giving up, though- let's just call it a temporary derailment- to be continued at a later date.
