And here are those promised pictures from Kate's birthday. I am hoping to save up for a new camera this summer, along with 50 other things we need, including a car. (And Stefanie, that does not mean that we are for sure moving back. We will need a car here or there. Just wanted to make sure we were clear on that. :))
Taken in the parking lot at Interspar. As you can tell by her lack of warm clothes, the weather has continued to be absolutely beautiful. And everyone loved her shirt, I mean the people who could actually read it. :)
Kate is talking to Grandma and Grandpa Yaiko via Skype here. Obviously Seth is more interested in what presents Kate got.
And he opened them all while Kate waited...
Oh, what's this?!
Onto more exciting pink shiny paper.
Daddy showing Kate how it works.
And seconds later, Seth taking it away so that he could play with it!
Kate did actually play a lot with these buckets that came with the shape sorter. And she has played with them every day since. :) So has Seth, which might have required some sort of discipline at various times...
Our super happy one year old!
I forgot to get a picture of her whole outfit with the adorable pants she was wearing. They were bright pink with a tutu attached. Stinking adorable! I will have to remember next time I put those pants on her to take a picture.
