This was what Tate was suppose to be.... A monkey.
She would have NOTHING to do with wearing the monkey hat. The one item that made it a monkey. Without the hat, it just becomes a brown shapeless jumpsuit with a tail.
A Fairy outfit.... something I bought for dress up fun.....
MUCH happier wearing this for sure!
Tate is not walking yet but will stand on her own for 30 seconds.
Tate was not feeling her Tate-r-lusciousness self so I decided it was way more fun for her to help hand out candy in her glow in the dark skeleton PJ's... Poor little sweetie with that chappy mouth and runny nose. Symptoms of her teething.

I cannot believe it has been five months since Tate was placed in my arms. Five months ago she filled my heart with her Tate-a-lusciousness. I crave her, I need her, she is my everything.
Hand print and foot print... 14 months old
Tate's choice for creating her art .....

It is said when a child is ready for a new skill, they become fussy and unhappy. I am expecting Tate to learn a new skill real soon, based on this information. Tate has always watched on with envy at the neighborhood toddlers while they run and play. I can see in her face the wish to join in on this fun. I feel this last few days, she is soooooooo ready to walk but her walking is just not there. She is communication this frustration in total meltdown mode. Apparently at her sitter's house she is a total delight. Lucky me, she saves her meltdowns for me. I know I have been extremely blessed with an even tempered sweet funny and easy child. I know this is just temporary... It will be interesting to see if this theory holds true. Will Tate become one of the walkers in the near future??? Time will tell.

She is growing and changing everyday...
nana (her grandmother)
vooo-vooo-voooa for dog.
Knows where her tongue, eyes, feet, toes, nose and hair is.
She knows what she wants and will shaking her head to say yes and no. She will put thought in answering questions correctly.
Everyday is a joy and an adventure with my Tate.
She will copy sounds combos like eeek eeek eeek booooo.
Yesterday I blew a raspberry on her neck, she turned to me and blew a raspberry on my cheek.... she was thrilled and giggled so adorably. I was touched to tears with joy.
Crawls super fast. Pulls herself up on everything including the dog Mesa.
Walks around things holding on to stuff.
reaches between things like couch and coffee table.
Favorite food is broccoli.
Each day is a joy and an adventure with my Tate.
