51 weeks

I can't believe that I only have one more week of taking these photos.  When I started this project I thought it was going to be so fun and had no idea how hard it was going to be to get a picture taken of her every Friday.  In the beginning it was easy, but as she got older and more mobile it became much harder.  These last couple of months have been the roughest.  I have wanted to quit a few times, but I made myself push through and keep going.  She isn't a huge fan of clothing changes so I have found it was best to take the picture in the morning and then she could stay in the onesie and that would help a little bit on her mood.  But the morning wasn't always ideal for sunlight, I hate to say it but I am going to be glad to see next week come for the one reason.  It will be the last photo I have to take.  Then again on the other hand, I am sad to see next week get here because it means Caitlin is going to be 1, this year has flown by.

This week, she has been getting much better with her walking, and being steadier on her feet.  She has been a finicky eater this week, things she usually likes she won't touch.  I am thinking it is just because she is teething and her gums hurt, at least that is what I am hoping.  I don't think I could handle another picky eater!  She finally has figured out how to go down the stairs.  I still have my make shift blockade in front of the front stairs so she can't climb up them when ever she wants.  But she has figured out how to move the ottoman and get up them when she wants.  Once she figured out how to go down them she suddenly seemed interested in the basement stairs.  I hadn't worried about them too much cause she didn't go by them very often.  After having to go after her about a dozen times one morning I bought another baby gate and got it installed that afternoon.

She has been getting diaper rashes lately, I never had a huge problem with them with the boys, but she seems especially prone to them the last couple of weeks.  I feel so bad when I change her diaper she just cries and I hate it.
