Lesson #1: Late afternoon/early evening is not the best time to travel by car with a 9 month old.
Lesson #2: Whatever you do, and I mean whatEVER you do, do NOT accidently get on the turnpike in the dark snowy night when you MEANT to get off at your mom's exit, adding 35 minutes to your trip.
Lesson #3: Now that Katy is aware enough to realize when we are sleeping in the same room, everyone sleeps better if her crib is in a different room than mom and dad.
Lesson #4: A full baby belly is the difference between a happy trip to Target and a stressful one.
Once we got home, Katy helped her Daddy put together her new toy box from IKEA. She loves to "help" and basically imitate everything Brian does. (including some very silly and obnoxious things, Lord help us all)

This is what it looked like last February, before we started any remodeling:

Katy also has some other interesting new skills:
-Eating "puffs" (like cheerios)
-Pointing at things (like her reflection in the mirror)
-Shaking her head "no" (which I'm convinced really means no, she tends to do it when she's had enough of something)
-"Walking" with a walker-type object (Today at storytime at the library she took a milk crate and walked practically across the room like she's been doing it her whole life!) Won't be long...

So we went to COSI. Katy enjoyed riding in the stoller and watching all the activity, but then we went to the little-kid area, and THERE Katy had a chance to really explore. We had so much fun watching her check everything out. She was so funny! She kept "waving" at the new people she saw (sticking hand straight out in the air) and chasing the balls all over the place. She also really enjoyed playing with her cousins. Here are some highlights:
Katy makes friends...
Leah plays doctor...
Carrie drives the ambulance...
We had to change Katy's outfit after playing at the water table. You can see a short video here.
Kimmy anxiously awaits a table at Spaghetti Warehouse...
