Kute Kal

My little Kalli Girl is getting so big! She'll be a year next month, on Valentine's Day, and we just love having her as part of our family. Kalli took her first step on Dec 14 and has been walking more and more since then. Just recently she's really starting to get the hang of it. Now when she's standing she'll just walk instead of crawl, that is until she falls down. It's so cute b/c you can tell how proud she is of herself. Kaiden still does the occasional push and shove but for the most part they're starting to play pretty well together. He loves having her crawl after him and once she's caught him he lets her crawl all over him. It worries me sometimes b/c she'll be hanging onto him and he'll just take off causing Kalli to fall down. Or since she was crawling on him he wants a turn to crawl on her! But she's tough and doesn't seem to mind. It's been real fun to see how excited Kaiden gets when Kalli stands on her own or takes steps.
I love how she's totally striking a pose in this picture
Kaiden has also found that he can get Kalli to put away his toys as long as he hands them to her. She thinks its so fun to dump something out and then put it back. She had a field day yesterday going through my cupboards and emptying out everything...again! She enjoyed taking my granola bars out of their box and putting them in the pop tart box and then back in the granola box. It's a wonder why we even buy kids toys sometimes! I've taken some cute videos of Kalli the last few days of helping Kaiden pick up his blocks and of her walking. My favorite part is Kalli's jibberish and cute smile b/c you how proud of herself she is. I also love when Kaiden is telling her,"Good job Kalli" and "Good girl" just like mom. See he is a great big brother...when he wants to be! As you can see in the last video she is quite the multi-tasker, she's walking and clapping at the same time. Before you know it she'll be chewing gum too! Why not, she doesn't have any hair for it to get tangled up in. :)
And yea for me b/c I'm all caught up on my blogging!!

Kalli is so cute. She always looks like the happiest baby! Kaiden is a smart boy- already getting his sister to do his work. Congrats on catching up with your blogging.

I love the videos! She looks a lot like her brother. They are so sweet. I love watching her walk. Let me know when y'all have play groups and I'll try to come.

Oh my gosh, those videos are so cute. I love how Kaiden is so sweet with her. That was precious :). It gets me excited to have a baby that age again, I love when they start learning how to walk and they're wobbly and just so proud of themselves!

My kids didn't start walking until 15 months, she's ahead of them already! I love it when babies are just learning to walk, they are so cute trying to keep their balance. She's gorgeous!

I didn't realise little Miss K was born on Valentine's Day!! What timing! Was she due on that date? She is walking really well, Noah was exactly the same. Kaiden on the other hand...well he is too busy eating to walk. His big belly makes him front heavy I think :-S But he is getting there!! He has started wandering all over the place, practice makes perfect :-)
