School Days, Museum Fun, & Growing up TOOO Fast...March 5 - 11, 2012

Kaetlyn's ThoughtsI had a really fun week playing with my friends at school and with my Baby Sister Grace.  I am turning out to be a real ham (I know this is news to everyone) and I love all kinds of adventures and learning!

This week at school, I made my teachers laugh because I was little Miss Adventure.  We had paint sensory time and I got to play in paint at the sensory table and also taste the paint :)

After that, we had a fun party for my friend, Christopher, who is moving out of Tod's into the 2's class.  We had cupcakes and crackers.  I "borrowed" a friend's plate, but only got her crackers...I savored every last bite of that cupcake though!

After our yummy party, I relaxed with my feet up and Mrs. Linda and Miss Erin thought I was really funny.

We had some time outside where I was "hangin' with my friends" - literally!
Me, Dominic, Avery, Aarush & Ashwin
At home, bathing with and hanging out with my Baby Sister Grace is becoming a thing of ritual.  I love playing with her...

Mommy says I'm really cute at bath time, so we had to share these pictures...
Daddy's "Hair Art"
Sweet Kaety, Full of Mischief!

Finally, we spent some time at the Seattle Children's Museum and I got to go ALL over this time.  It was really fun and we "visited" some interesting places while I was there:
I played inside a whale's mouth!
Sat on a cool "chair"

Learned all about shopping with my VERY OWN CART!
Visited Latin America and drove a bus...
And played some cool instruments.
Played with some new friends...
Then took a trip to Japan...(am I supposed to stand on the table?!)
NO!  We're supposed to SIT at tables!
Rode the "subway"
Learned about construction safety...

And did a little construction myself.
And went for a boat ride...

After all that, I learned the fine art of sliding down an "icy fjord" like a penguin...
WHEW!  What a week! :)

Gracie's Perspective
I'm here to tell you, if you think Kaety had a big week, watch out...mine was even BIGGER! 

I went to the dr. to visit for my 6 month visit and to get shots :(  I did not like the 3 shots I received at ALL, and I cried - REALLY hard.  It made my Mommy sad, but I got over it before she did and passed out shortly after having them for a nice hour-long nap!

I showed off my fancy sitting skills and bouncy skills to Dr. P and Nurse Amy, but they were still able to get these fun facts, which my Mom has graciously supplied in comparison to my Big Sister Kaet at this age:

             GRACIE 6 MOS                KAETY 6 MOS
Height         26"                                26 1/2"
Weight        16 lb, 12 oz                     17 lb, 2 oz
Head           16 1/4"                           16 1/2"

To all of our surprise, I'm a bit smaller than my big Sis!  But I'm gettin' there! :)
Sweet Gracie waitin' on shots...

In other news, it's been a Big, Big week for me.  I have TWO (count 'em TWO!) teeth that came in on the bottom this week.  The other big news of the week...I'm CRAWLING!  Mom can't believe it.  I went from being a sitter to basically crawling all over within two weeks.  And from last Friday to Sunday, it was like a complete world of difference in my crawling skills.  Watch out I come!

Here is a video Mommy shot of me "crawling" on Friday:

And here is me Sunday...pretty impressive, aren't I?!

Oh!  And more news...I'm also pulling myself up on things. It started with me pulling myself up in my crib at school and by the end of the week, I was doing it on all sorts of items at home and out and about!!!

Mom loves all the big news this week, but she would like me to slow down just a little.  She says she hopes that next week she doesn't have to post that I'm all of a sudden walking!!!

I've tried to be very helpful this week, but maybe I'm a bit too I am "helping" Daddy open some wine:

And just because I'm cute, the gratuitous bath shot...

I enjoyed myself at the Seattle Children's Museum...maybe not quite as much as Kaety, since I got to travel around in this get-up:

But it was still fun - especially when I got to get down and play with her.  I love her!

Sisters <LOVE>
