I have a few videos that I thought I'd post. This first one was last night.

OK, so this morning I was looking at blogs and found a video of a baby only a week and half older than Katrina walking around a room pushing a little toy truck. I was astounded and kind of sad that Katrina is nowhere near that developed motor-skill-wise. So I tried to get her to stand and hold herself on a table. That failed. Then I tried this and it worked pretty well. Sorry the camera is so shaky.

This third video was just plain cute. Katrina loves to put everything in her mouth, of course, but I draw the line at my feet!

We went to the doctor today for her six-month visit, even though she's almost seven months old. The doctor was very happy with how she is doing, and said that it was eery how much we look alike. :] She also told me to try to stop feeding Katrina when she wakes up in the middle of the night. So I have a feeling we have some rough nights ahead of us. She also had to get five shots, so I wouldn't be surprised if she has a fever for a couple of days like last time. She is:

16 lbs 10 oz--50%,

26 in. long--44%, and

17.25 in. head circumference--77%.

Okay, and one last thing. For the last three days I have been hearing scratching noises from one of our walls. It made me nervous that we have a rodent in the walls. It got bad enough on Monday that I called the office, but then maintenance came to work on the apartment above us and the scratching from them above and also from the walls unnerved me enough that I left and went on a walk. I don't know if maintenance came to our apartment and even if they did, they may have assumed that I was hearing the work going on upstairs. So anyway, if there is a rodent stuck in there, it's been alive for three days. And I'm really grossed out. How would they check, anyway? We're trying to figure out what to do. I keep forgetting about it until I hear the scratch, scratch, scratch and then I get super creeped out. Maybe I should call maintenance again.

So Obama is the president-elect. Hmm. I didn't vote for him, but I don't think the U.S. is going to practically implode and become socialist like a lot of Republicans seem to think. I don't mind much that he won except for when Adam turns on CNN and they're all congratulating themselves smugly. CNN, especially Anderson Cooper, bugs the heck out of me. But anyway. Yay for freedom and voting, and that Proposition 8 passed in California!

Oh she is just so cute! I love all the fun things you do with her. I can't wait to see her in a couple months!!!

Bill and I decided we want to steal Katrina for a few hours while you're here in January and play with her. Do you have a problem with that? :) Maybe she'll think I'm you since we look so much alike, and actually like me. lol. And all babies love Bill. That's just the way it is. :)

She was a little confused by how much Natasha and I looked alike when Tasha was here, so maybe she'll be confused when all three of us are together! :]
Sure, you can take her, sometime between your wedding, reception, and leaving for your honeymoon. I'm sure you'll have plenty of extra time. :]

Tori, it looks like Katrina is thriving! Don't worry about the baby you saw walking on that blog. There will always be a baby who is better at something. Katrina is doing really well and she is obviously very bright.

And gross about the mouse. That would totally creep me out.

Jolena said...

Oh yeah, we're going to have all the time in the world! I mean, there's so many extra hours in the wedding day, I can't imagine how we wouldn't find time. :)

I'm very excited to see how she reacts to all three of us together. She's a little older now, so maybe it won't be so weird, but then again...
