Kate's Christmas!

Although she had no idea what the bright lights and the wrapped gifts meant, Kate seemed to thoroughly enjoy her holidays. Despite having a horrible cold and two ear infections, she continued to rally back from crankiness in order to laugh, play and kiss all her toys.

Christmas at Grandma and Grandpa Puschmann's
Kate was spoiled silly at Grandma's house during the holidays. Between Grandma and Aunt Diane, Mama didn't have to do much at all. Thanks! Kate thoroughly enjoyed being with the family, playing and showing off her new walking skills. On Christmas Day, she started walking on her own!

Above: "Really, mama! Get these things off of me."

Above: The bottle in Kate's right hand was a stocking stuffer from Grandma. It didn't leave her hand the entire day! It's still one of her favorite toys!

Above: The bib is part of an outfit that Kate received from Auntie Dorothy. The outfit's too big for now, but the bib is just right. Go Cubbies!

Christmas with cousin Sebastian

Above: Kate with cousin Sebastian. Sebastian is probably thinking, "I hope that girl doesn't try to kiss me -- she's a drooler!"

Below: Kate with the awesome toy that Sebastian gave her. It took a week or so for her to figure it out, but now it's part of the daily routine!

Christmas with Oma and Opa

Christmas with Grandma and Grandpa Braun
Grandma and Grandpa Braun spent last weekend with us, showering Kate with affection. We had a great weekend visiting, playing and doting on the newest Braun. Kate loved being with them and also thinks the big bear they brought her is fantastic! !
PS: The awesome puppy is from the Seemer family, and Kate plays with "Seemer" everyday. If I ask her, "Where's Seemer?" she goes right to the puppy and both kisses / rubs noses with him. Thanks Jack and family!
