Highlights from the past 2 weeks

We've been busy around here!  Mostly with parents working, everyone having multiple colds, and Katherine acquiring a 3rd tooth.  She is doing great at daycare.  Kate loves the Jumperoo they have there, so much that now she tries to jump even in our non-springy apparatus at home, as well as while standing on our laps, etc.  She is eating a lot, and taking longer naps at daycare than at the beginning.  Generally, Katherine is a happy little girl and we are enjoying her every day.  Now, here are some photos!

Wearing a handmade hat from Emily's cousin's wife Kriste.
Fell asleep in the car after a dinner with Matt's coworkers.
Hair got messy after being smeared with oatmeal!
Playing with blocks from Aunt Karie.
Alfalfa hair in the bath!
I turned on the light to wake her from her nap, and she continued naturally I took pictures.
Protesting being woken up...
Emily's college roommate Allison came for a visit during a cross-country road trip!  We hadn't seen her in over 5 years.
Kate is hanging out with Matt's coworker Minghui and her new husband Tao.
Daddy thinks it's fun to hold Katherine upside down.  She tolerates it! :)

8 months old!

Almost every photo of Katherine nowadays is of her sitting and playing.
Trying on a Halloween hat...

...and socks!  There's a bodysuit too, with a cat on it.  We'll see if it still fits her in a few weeks!
She actually tipped over while sitting and ended up with the bowl on her head!
Daddy picked out this outfit (and the one in the next photos too).
These Tedou photos will never be the same, now that Katherine can sit up and grab things!
Daddy picked Katherine up from her crib to wake her from an afternoon nap, and couldn't resist extending the nap a little longer on the couch.

Katherine talks!

At first she's just enthusiastically yelling and waving the spoon around after eating her dinner, but eventually she says "da da," one of her favorite new skills.  Also notice the pink sock that she took off herself and threw on the floor!
