Purple Overall Photo Shoot

Purple Overalls (5)

On Wednesdays Geoff goes to choir practice, and I stay home with Katie. It was pretty warm out when she and I got home yesterday afternoon, so I put her down in the grass and took some pictures of her.

It was hard to choose one favorite photo to post here - she has so many different expressions, and all of them make me smile. You can see a whole set of photos from yesterday, if you'd like to see some of the other expressions.

And yes, in a few of those photos she is standing up almost on her own. Her balance is getting so much better! I only held onto one of her hands with one of mine, and she stood there, stable, for a few minutes. Then she sat.

I guess maybe every parent feels this way, but when I look at Katie, I so often wonder: how did I get so lucky? To paraphrase As Good As It Gets, she makes me want to be a better woman, mom, person. She makes me want to be a better me.

Some days it's nice to just look at something abstract, isn't it?

Ahhh....clear your mind. Just look at the pretty colors! Now, don't you feel better?

Kathleen Matilda, 2 foot 4 or 5 (or so)

Another piece - "Just beautiful, no 'but'" is up at DotMoms.

Katie practiced walking on Saturday. I'm pretty sure it was the first time the bottoms of her little feet felt sidewalk underneath them. She had a good time.
