Alright, get ready for the cute-off. I keep telling myself that I will work on having less baby-related posts, but, to be honest, she is the most important thing in my life anyway. Consequently, you all get to hear all about her.
One of the neatest things about Kitara right now is that she is starting to be able to interact w/ me on a daily basis. Sometimes she will mimic my actions or even listen to things I request of her. It is really quite amazing. Along w/ the fact that she is now crawling everywhere, I am having a blast learning and growing with my daughter every day.
Along with these new capabilities come a few new challenges as well. Kitara is FAST. She is not fast-fast, but she is sneaky-fast. She lulls you into a sense of complacency and then zooms off to some forbidden part of the house. Of course, her favorite activities are currently pulling down heavy objects on top of her head, chewing on power cables, and, my favorite, trying to yank the fur off the cat. Needless to say, Crystal and I are scrambling about a bit more now, but we are learning to be smarter about how to watch over her.
Anyway, there are a few awesome video / images things that I want to share. First off, check out this video that Crystal got of Kitara a few weeks ago. We have been learning to play Patty-Cake:
Even learning simple things like that still amaze me. I still remember her as the eating-pooping machine. Where did this learning / personality thing come from? Do I want to encourage it?
Finally, here are a few pics of her at 8 & 9 months. As you can see, she got to have her first taste of snow, lol.
Having a blast!
