The only good thing about this is that when Kate takes the KONG from Lucy she doesn't mind and then Lucy will take the KONG right back from Kate and Kate doesn't mind. At least they know how to share!
We went to the park again today and just wanted to include this sweet picture of Kate enjoying the swings.

After lunch we all headed to the park. Kate LOVES the swing. Here she is with Pop.
Kate has not tried to crawl over anything yet..well, until now. Bryce was happy to provide assistance as Kate tried to maneuver over him to a toy.
This picture was actually taken a few weeks ago but my friend Lisbeth emailed it to me and I just had to post it. Isn't this the sweetest picture of Kate and Anna Beth?!

One more post about our trip to Atlanta last week. We went to this fun place with all these inflatable toys/games/slides. They have a room for children 2 and under which is where we played. Kate wasn't crawling yet but she had a great time watching everyone else move around on all the fun mats and toys. And the best part is that it is free for children 11 months and younger!!
I do have to tell this one story. Amy told me that there was this really fun slide in the back of the place. So we take Bryce and Kate into the room with all the big inflatables and go to this slide. After I manuever through a tunnel, around punching bags, up and down through horizontal poles and up the steepest incline to the top of the slide I politely asked Amy if she had lost her mind (well I may have said it a little differently). All this while holding an 8 month old and in socks and on a big blow up toy where you can hardly keep your balance all by yourself. That is what we should have been taking video of because I can promise you it was quite comical.

Like I have posted before, Kate has been rolling everywhere, scooting, and is a pro at going backwards but has not made any forward movement yet - that is until today. Jason and I were playing with her and when we put her down on the ground this afternoon she leaned forward got on her hands and knees and crawled about 3-4 steps and grabbed one of her toys. We were both looking at each other like "did you see what I saw?" I got some video of her crawling a few steps, but we are still days away from full out crawling. She can get to her toys that are in the immediate proximity but she isn't all over our house by any means. But how exciting that Kate is crawling!!
(keep scrolling for more posts...we spent the weekend in Atlanta and I posted a few things from our trip)

Bryce is a pro in the water. He goes under easily, can hold onto the side of the pool by himself, and kicks, kicks, kicks in the water...did I mention Bryce is just 10 months old? This was Kate's first time in water besides the bathtub and she did great.
She was great swimming like a frog on her belly and she didn't cry when we dunked her.
Bryce worked hard trying to teach Kate how to crawl. She is a pro at scooting and going backwards and she can even go from a crawling position back to a sitting position but NO forward movement quite yet...however we are really close!
Here is where the title of this blog comes in. If you keep up with my sister-n-law Amy's blog then you know Bryce likes to poop in the tub. Well, we took the risk and put both kiddos in the tub tonight. They had a blast playing and splashing and Bryce didn't poop!
( You will have to check back because the most fun we had today was when we went swimming. I have some really cute video footage from then so I am going to see if I can upload it to the blog.)

After the petting zoo Kate was sacked out for a little while and missed all the lions and tigers.
But then she woke up just in time to see the seals and smile for the camera!

(Shea - notice her bracelet? We are about to out grow that...Kate's little wrists aren't so little anymore!)

Kate grew out of the bath seat we had so I just decided to try her in the big tub and she loves it! She can splash around a lot more and loves playing with her bath toys.
We are SOOOOO close to crawling. However, as you can see Kate gets a little frustrated right now. She can go backwards like a champ but is having a hard time figuring out forward movement.
Kate loves playing with her little friends. Here you can see that she and Catelyn are even learning how to take turns. First, Kate gets to eat Catelyn...
...now Catelyn gets to eat Kate!!
