Mary Kate had her one year check up today! A little late, I know, but the dr. was totally booked until now!
Well folks, we still have a teeny tiny princess on our hands! She weighed in at 17lbs 2 oz. For those of you who don't have kids, that's the size of an average 6 month old! We love our little tiny girl :o)
Mary Kate is entering what Lorne and I like to call the "language explosion" phase. She says lots of words, but of course never performs them when I want her to show off her skills to someone! Some of her favorite things to says are: hi, up, daddy, eye, "ah-da" (all done), "beh-yee" (belly), "buh-yee" (bunny), apple, "ight" (light), tree, etc etc and she loves to do animal sounds!
Her favorite song at the moment is The Wheels on the Bus, and she loves to make her arms go round and round when we sing it to her :o) She also likes to play "where is/are your - eyes, nose, mouth, hair, ears, belly, teeth, knees, etc".
She still hasn't braved her first steps yet, but she enjoys pushing her walker around the house and cruising on furniture. Here are some pics of our soon-to-be walking girl:
