{warning~ there are A LOT of photos in this post~it's my scrapbook}

I got some great shots of Kate at the beach two weeks ago and I have not had time to post them....so I thought she could be my Sunday Snapshot this week.

could she be any cuter?

Kate sure can strike a pose for the camera....

But one of the things I love the best about Kate is her "can-do" attitude. This girl does not give up. Whether it is learning to swim and dive, play a song on the piano, make her bed, hula hoop, braid hair or learning to tie a shoe (Yes, she can! See below!) ...she practices and practices until she gets it. She has incredible determination (and it is the good kind;)

  16. Kate is positively one of the most adorable little girls around. I mean, I've always thought she was precious, but these pics reaaally show her beauty! I know she is just as beautiful on the inside which makes her all the more wonderful! Love the pics and particularly the ones of you and her together. What a sweet bond!

  17. Great job Kate!!! Love you CAN-DO attitude!!! Your determination and beautiful zest for life itself will take you far!! You are awesome at tying shoes!!!

  18. @Morgan there is a little wooden shoe I picked up in the KOHL's dept store. It has eyelets w/laces and it works wonderful for helping little ones learn to tie shoes! My little one loves it and helped her tremendously. Sorry I can't remember the "brand", but I'm sure toys r us, or any local dept store may carry it!

  32. What a cutie and sweetie! Love all of the pictures of your beautiful girl! I am quite impressed with her shoe tying abilities! Lucy has been working on that as well. Her favorite is double (triple,etc) knots - not so fun to un-do. Also quite impressed with the hula hooping! Kate seems like a real sweetie!

  33. Kim, these might be some of my most favorite pictures of her ever.... you truly captured her spirit in all of them......what a sweetie!!

    There can never be too many photos:)
