Today Kate is 3 years and seven months old. Today she walked her most number of independent steps ever...22. So awesome.
It's been almost 2 years since she started crawling.

Totally awesome day today. Kate is doing so well with her walking. Today she was standing facing a bed, turned around and walked to my sister Jenny ALL BY HERSELF. Of course, when we tried to video it, she knew what we were up to and couldn’t be bothered, but it was so awesome. Kate wants to walk everywhere. It’s really, really coming.
And…there is now no doubt in my mind that Kate has said her first word. And being the best daughter in the world, her first word is “Mmmmmomm”. We’ve heard her say it before, but were unsure if it was intentional. Over the holiday, we got our confirmation. This time, she was sitting on her bed with Dad, angry that I wasn’t with her. She got into high kneel, reached out her arms and said “Mmmmmom Mmmmmom Mmmmmom”. It’s almost a daily event now. She is so cool!
Kelly is Kate's devoted, caring, Type-A mom. Kelly is a high school physics teacher who earned her masters degree in neuroscience from McMaster University in 2003.
