Kathryn lately...

It's been a while since I've done a post on what Kathryn's been up to, so here's an update.

We've had the classic runny noses around our household for weeks now, and Kathryn is very good to go and get a tissue whenever she needs one. However, just recently, she's gotten very particular about touching them once they've been used. Here she is demonstrating how to hold the teeniest tip of the tissue to take it to the trash can.She's been exercising with me. She's demonstrating a push-up here:
She LOVES to do dishes, which really means playing in the water in the sink. Every once in a while I can distract her by giving her a rag to wipe the table or counters with while I try to wash up the dishes by myself.
She's getting very independent, wanting to do everything herself, including putting on her shoes by herself. If you look closely in this picture, you can tell.
She's really gotten into drawing. This is a goldfish that she drew. I actually thought it amazingly looked like a fish. Do you see it too, or am I just being a proud mama?
Sportin' a dew rag...
Just being super cute!

Her language has continued to take off, and she often talks in simple sentences now. Some classics:
Mama, I want two!
I want more juice please!
Mama, snow cars, uh-oh! (When the snow was on the cars, and it was different for her!)

She is also continuing to show a tender heart. Whenever we make a sad face, she'll furrow her brow together with a concerned look on her face, say "Sad?" and come over to give us a kiss. When Jackson is sad, she'll run to find a paci for him. She's getting better and better about playing with him, and will play peek a boo with him and give him toys (which really means bury him in toys, because she piles them on top of him!). Although we are getting into a whiny and willful stage right now, she is still so much fun, and makes me laugh all the time. Having a two-year-old is such hard work, but we know that all the work we put into raising her in the Lord now will pay off as she grows. It is our prayer that we would have wisdom as we seek to nurture her in the ways of the Lord, that she might call on His name and live her life for Him.
