Walking and More

Yes, Hattie is finally walking. She's been taking a few steps here and there for about a week or so now, but just a few days ago did she really start taking lots of steps at one time. She can walk across a room now! She spends much of her day walking from one object to another. She loves to carry things in her hands while she walks, too. Sean and I smile every time she takes off because it's just so darn cute. She also still falls a lot and has tons of bruises and scratches to show for it. Poor boo-boo! She's gettin' better by the day, though.

Notice that my prissy girl is wearing a necklace in the photos. She LOVES wearing necklaces and bracelets and any type of "pretties." She is such a girly-girl!

And her 8th tooth FINALLY popped through. It's been rough for about a week around here prior to that dern tooth finally surfacing, but things seem to be on the upswing again.

Hattie's newest phrase is "mean cat!" Sean's parents have a cat that HATES everyone except Sean's mom, so every time the babies would chase it, it would hiss like crazy at them. Kinda scary. So now Hattie is on this kick where she says, "mean cat!" and then will "hhhiiiiiissss!" She acts extra proud of herself if I act startled when she does this. It's really cute.

Finally, this is one of my favorite pictures that I took of Hattie and Wendy together. They sure are staring each other down, aren't they! Wendy was so cute. She would curl her little tongue up to the faucet and try to lap up the water. I hope they'll have many baths in Mimi's sink together in the future. My cousin and I were still bathing in my grandmother's sink together at the age of 3 or 4.....okay, maybe we were a little too big to be doing that, but man, we had a BLAST!

Yea for Hattie! She looks so cute with things in her hands and that necklace around her neck - too funny.
And that last picture of her and her cousin - adorable!!! I might have to copy that idea and get Saige and Steven together in our sink. :)
Oh, and thanks for the poem Stephanie. It made me tear up... I am getting very excited to be a mother of 2.

Stephanie, you need to enter that photo in a magazine contest or something. It is so sweet.

Wisdom From the Pope

“The inalienable dignity of every human being and the rights which flow from that dignity - in the first place the right to life and the defense of life - are at the heart of the church's message." Pope John Paul ended his address, saying: "In spite of divisions among Christians, 'all those justified by faith through baptism are incorporated into Christ...brothers and sisters in the Lord.'" Pope John Paul 2
