CATE


CATE, the great-grandgirl, is growing like a WEED...
she is here and there and everywhere......never sits still for a minute.
That's just the way it's supposed to be......
She loves to play like all little girls do.
and loves her PINK MOTORCYCLE.
I think she likes PINK, period.

The following is taken from Cate's mom

jammies

My girl is very rarely cold. I think the standard rule for dressing children for playtime in cold weather is to dress them in one more layer than what you wear. But I do the opposite. Usually I wear one more layer than she does.
Anyway, today she was eating a well-balanced lunch of yogurt and milk and decided she was cold. She didn't want a jacket. She didn't even want a blanket. She wanted these beauties.
And did I mention that while I was trying to zip them up, I unintentionally toppled her over and she twacked her forehead on the ground? Whoops. Sweet thang still managed a smile for me (after she was done crying for her Daddy for awhile, of course).
Then when I put her down for a nap, I heard some rustling about in her room. I just let her be, hoping that she'd fall asleep. Later I walked down the hall and panicked when the door to her room was wide open but she was not in her bed! A quick glance around the corner and I found her here:




Not a bad napping spot, I suppose. I've napped in that chair quite often myself. Plus, the only evidence of misbehavior I found was a half-eaten tube of chapstick.










THIS one has always been my favorite photo of CATE.
She looks like a child model, I think.
Nope....never in a million years could she be STILL enuf to be a child model.....
maybe later.....when she's about 21.  :>)
We love ya, Cate girl.....                          and she loves CHOCOLATE...

Oh she's just as adorable as can be! I so related to her mother saying that she accidentally toppled her over and she got a bump on her forehead. Things like that happen!

Bunny Jean said...

Hi Bj!

Cate is adorable and in that last photo she looks a little determined too... she will need that is she is going to be a model, lol.

I guess today is a good day to post about the grand kids... I did the same! I just can't post about my FIRST great grandchild until August :)

What an adorable little girl. I can relate to these special ones. I have great grandson that I love more than life. He has been the best thing that has happened to me since I lost my husband. He brings me much joy and happiness, Noting sweeter than the love of a child. I fact, am meeting him and family in the morning for breakfast.

Oh those great grands are just adorable aren't they? I kept mine last weekend and posted about it. I really think it is too much for me, but I can't resist-know you can't either!Some people would say it keeps us young-don't know about that, I felt pretty old when he left!LOL!

Theresa said...

Great pictures, especially that last one of the mussed hair... LOVE IT! The problem with these little ones is that they don't stay little long enough to suit me! Have a blessed day my friend, HUGS!

The French Hutch said...

Cate is adorable and looks like she could be a match for my little Connor. That age they are so active every minute and then crash. I wanted to scoop her up seeing the sweet pic of her napping. I love her all her pink. If you need a break send her to me! She is absolutely model material………..

Happy Pink Saturday BJ Sweetie...
What a precious share today. I love seeing your sweet Cate. She is a Cutie Patootie. Love her hair. She is going to be a model one day.

Love those jammies. That story written by her sweet Momma is priceless. I found myself smiling. (I can remember a time or two, I down swung my dear girl, while trying to jump her into her tights for twirling. A sweet memory for me.)

Have a gorgeous weekend BJ sweetie. Thanks again for the pinky share. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Hello BJ, I guess that's the next step for us to one day have great-grands and I hope they bring as much joy as your little gal does to you.
I had to smile when I saw Rett's comment - we say the same thing about kittens and puppies!
Not surprised to see she likes chocolate - old family tradition huh?
