8 months

Kate turned 8 months on sunday! She is getting so old! She also gets cuter everyday. She is really fast at crawling now. She has also decided this whole past week she doesn't want to sleep anymore. It is very frustrating. Ever since she has figured out how to pull herself up in her crib, that's all she wants to do in it. She has the biggest personality of any 8 month old I've ever seen. She is a very good baby but always has to doing something. She could not sit still if her life depended on it. We love her so much though and can't wait to see what else she is going to show us.

Date night

Over the weekend, Phil's mom and sister, Kendra, were in town for Kendra's soccer tournament. Phil's mom was nice enough to offer to babysit Kate on Friday so we could go on a date. We jumped at the chance! First, Phil went to go get his haircut (it was badly needed) and after we went to dinner at Roy's. It is a hawaiian fushion restaurant. It was SO yummy! Definitely one of my new favorite and I highly recommend going there. We told the waiter it was our date night and so they gave us a free dessert and wrote on the plate "happy date night." It was the perfect way to end our delicious meal and awesome date. It was weird going to a restaurant and not just try and hurry to finish as fast as possible before Kate looses her patience. We need to have date nights more often!
with our free dessert! so yummy!

Over this past weekend, I went to Disneyland (again)! Phil didn't join me this time. It was just a ladies trip. I went with my visiting teacher, Rachel, her 2 kids, and another lady in the ward, Tiffani, with her 3 kids. We had a blast! Since I have an annual pass, I figured why not go! The first night we got there, we went to Huntington Beach and went to this really cool restaurant, Ruby's. It was way out on the water on a pier and is a really fun 50's diner. The next two days we spent having tons of fun at Disneyland. Kate loved all the rides this time. It wasn't crowded at all and we were so sad to leave.

first tooth!

So this happened a week ago but life has been so crazy around here I haven't had time to blog about it, but Kate cut her first tooth! I keep trying to take a picture of it but it's a lot harder to get than you would think. She won't let me go anywhere near her mouth. She has been so good about it and still sleeps through the night (thankfully!) You can see the one next to it will be coming in any day. She is also starting to pull herself up on furniture. It won't be long til we have a walker!
