If you thought of the Kelly Clarkson song "miss indepedent" when you read the title of this post you are exactly right. That song is the most perfect way I could describe Kate. I don't know what has happened this past few weeks but she has turned into Miss independent. The song goes like this: "Miss independent, miss self-sufficient, miss keep your distance, miss unafraid, miss out of my way, miss don't let a man interfere." Okay she's not the last part but still. She has to do EVERYTHING herself or else she throws a huge tantrum. She has to drink out of a big girl cup or she won't drink at all. She has to feed herself or she won't eat at all. She knows what she wants and has to have it but can't communicate it so she just whines. She is trying my patience! I'm sure this is totally normal and any other mother who has a kid this stage is just laughing at this post but I just want it to be over. She turned 18 months on Friday and I really can't believe it. Which means she went into the nursery for the first time Sunday! She did really well. I heard her crying twice so I went in and checked on her. But I am very proud of myself because I never got her. We went to her 18 month check up yesterday. She weighs 27 pounds 6 ounces which is the 90%. She is 35 inches tall which is the 97%. That is the first comment I ever get on her these is day is how tall she is. I really am loving this age though and am excited for when she can really start talking. This is the most recent picture I have of her. We had family pictures taken in Salt Lake for christmas (more on that later) They turned out really cute.
