babysitter for hire...

as i'm sure you can imagine, the thought of welcoming a new baby into our family in February is at the forefront of our mind for Katherine... she is our world...and we are trying to introduce the concept of a baby, what they do, etc. :) thankfully, the little girl i watch, Tenley, is just 3 months and K has learned a lot from her being here... :)

K loves her baby doll...... she got her for her birthday...my dad affectionately named her Suzie....and that's the end of that... :) she even smells like powder...yum... :)

K has shown she's going to be a pretty good big sister, i think...
she can help get Suzie's little hat on... :)


she can get Suzie situated on her "blankie"
she can pick Suzie up and comfort her when she "kies" or burp her...
she can also use Suzie as a bowling ball when she plays with her bowling set...
she gets a strike every time, too! thankfully our "Nanny bear cam" wasn't functioning for those pictures...
and we can't help but giggle when Suzie is "tossed" wrecklessly into the swing for a little relaxation... :)
in all seriousness, i'm so pleased to watch K with Suzie and Tenley... while it's not all coos and smiles, K is learning that baby's cry...and they need their diaper changed...and they have to eat...and that they require to be held... she's so attentive to Tenley...wanting to comfort her or give her hugs and kisses every 5 minutes... :) we'll still working on talking quiety when the baby is sleeping...but that will come with time. :) i know she's going to be a super big sister... :) well, until she realizes that her little sister isn't going to go home with Tenley at 4:30 each day :)
while she has a ways to go, take her number down...in 10 years, she's bound to be a great baby sitter... :) just be sure to put away your bowling pins, kay? :) i'm not making any promises there.... :)

VERY SWEET....I too am sure K will make a great big sister! (But, I know it will still be an adjustment -- hey, a baby is an adjustment to all of us).
