Ten

Kate turned ten on this month.  She said she didn't feel ten, she still felt nine.  Today she told me, and not for the first time, that she wished she was still a baby.  She said she was cuter as a baby and it was more fun to be a baby.   I just laughed.  Callie said the other day that being a grown up was going to stink.  I think we were talking about bills. LOL  They have a point I guess.

Like it or not, she's growing up.  She's been to her first skating birthday party, and invited to two more in two weeks time.  Skating must be the thing this year.  Then she had her very first friend sleepover to celebrate her birthday last weekend and last, but not least, we had our usual Indiana family party on Saturday.


 

 
 






 World's worst blog picture?  I handed the camera to someone else thinking they would have a better view, but then they handed it off too.  I have no idea how it ended up black and white and then Kate changed directions!  Oh well.

 
It almost seemed a little cruel to get a kid a bike in January, but it was now or never.  She had a few days of good weather to practice, then some snow and really cold days, but this weekend is supposed to be "nice."
 
 
 
Kate has learned to text in the last couple of weeks.  Last night she told me "I could do this all day!"  She loves to send Cameron all kinds of emoticons and love messages.  It's pretty cute.  Thankfully it's free! 
 
She is growing so tall!  What is it with my girls?  Ten years old and we had to buy size 14 shirts so they would be long enough!  I always thought that she would be drastically shorter than Callie, but it looks like that may not be the case.
 
Everyone tells you "they grow up so fast" and I remember getting sort of tired of people telling me that when Callie was a baby.  But it's so true!!  I find myself wanting to say the same things to newer  moms who are so tired or in the middle of potty training, which I remember feels like it's never going to end!  Most of the time I just keep my mouth shut though, I know they've heard it a thousand times.   Now, I'm glad for all of those reminders.  Now, I give them to myself every day.

  1. I cannot believe Kate is 10...she can't be! How did THAT happen? What a beautiful, fun, sweet girl! So glad we have the blessing of knowing her. "Group hug" from the Crump's!

  2. When I saw the second picture in your post, I thought "Hey! We have pajamas just like those!" Then I thought "Oh, wait ... " :-D

    Thanks for being the trailblazer to 10. It'll help ease the shock when Claire hits that milestone in June!

    1. Ha! Well since you're the trailblazer for the teen and young adult years, it's the least I could do! ;)

  3. Happy Birthday to Kate! A is also saying she wishes she was younger, and loves to climb into M's crib and stroller. Which I'm not always happy about - I don't want these things to break, lol. I hope we can get together this year <3
