She is standing unassisted for a few seconds at a time. Cate has become a little speed demon - whether crawling or cruising, it's always fast! I don't think it will be much longer and she will just take off walking. It's fun to watch, but I'll admit I'm a little anxious. Have I mentioned she's ornery?!?!
Cate is teething like crazy, but still only has two teeth. The top four are ssssssooooooo close to coming through. We are all ready for that. She has been drooling, chewing, fussy (for her) and not sleeping too well. I've ordered an amber teething necklace; we'll see if it's the miracle everyone says it is.
Cate loves reading books, bubbles, talking, and dancing. She can now say mama, dada, bird, and cat. She has also mastered waving bye-bye although she isn't saying it quite yet. Watching her dance is one of my favorite things in the world! Any sound that has any sort of rhythm gets her moving and grooving. From songs on the radio, to her brother playing, to my breast pump - she'll dance to any beat she hears. Cate enjoys knocking down block towers; I never realized how hilarious that activity could be. Apparently it's also pretty darn amusing to put things into baskets and take them out again. She's honing that skill every chance she gets.
And just in case you were wondering, she still thinks Cooper is the funniest thing ever. I will never tire of watching her laugh at his crazy antics. Sometimes he just looks at her and she cracks up - adorbs!

shoes that fit her chubby feet.
