Cuddling with Leah Baty

"Thanks for the presents, Nana and Grandpa Jones! I especially like the play remote!"

Today, you are 28 weeks old, Katy. You express your personality more and more each day. We are getting to explore the world in a whole new way, by seeing it through your eyes.

The most important event that happened this week is the fact that I get to stay home with you, Katy, full-time. The teachers at King's Keep were sad to see you go, Katy. They said that they'll miss you and that (for the most part) you've been a very good girl in their care. I've resigned from my position at Shoe Show in order to be a full-time stay at home mom. While money may be tight, and I don't really get a whole lot done around the house, I know that we will not regret this decision for me to stay home! You sleep better in your own crib (for longer stretches!). Plus, Daddy commented on what a better mood you were in, yesterday, when he came home from work. I am so grateful for this opportunity to be able to stay home with you, Katy!

You are in discovery mode, now. You have figured out how to get from a laying down position to a sitting position, all on your own. You like to do this on a regular basis in your crib, on the floor, on the changing table. You have figured out how to take your bib off and I fear that taking off your clothes may be next to go. This morning, you figured out how to unlink the links that attach your toys to your exersaucer. You have a better understanding of how things work, and that certain actions have a reaction when it comes to your spinning, light-up toys.

Daddy and I could be a little biased, but we believe that you finally understand that "Dada" is a real, live person (your Daddy!), and not just the T.V., or your stuffed animal, or the wall, or your seat, etc. We even think we saw you put your hand to your forehead as if to sign "Dada." Now, to work on figuring out who "Mama" is....

Your taste buds are becoming more defined as you let us know what you do and don't like to eat. We never got around to introducing you to carrots, this week, as you let it be known that all you wanted to eat were sweet potatoes. However, this morning, you did manage to eat some homemade baby food squash mixed with sweet potatoes and yesterday, you ate yogurt with apple and sweet potato puree. Katy, you definitely seem to have a sweet tooth (maybe THAT'S why you like Cookie Monster so much?!??!)!

We've discovered that you LOVE the song, "I'm a Little Teapot." We do hand motions and everything to the song and your face just lights up. Of course, Daddy and I tend to get this song stuck in our heads and catch ourselves humming it when not in your company. This leads to strange looks from the people around us. Oh well!
