Happy Chinese New Year! Our family celebrated at Charley Chiang's restaurant in Naples, and talked with other families that were celebrating with their kids as well. Kate ate very well and feasted on lettuce wraps, noodles, shrimp, and chicken. She hadn't eaten this well since the White Swan! Before we left, she was presented with the traditional "lucky money" that children get for the new year.

Kate has come a long way in learning the English language. She can say many words now, and can put several of them together. She is not speaking in sentences, but we're positive that will come soon! We just bought a new swimsuit, although we haven't been swimming in our pool yet. She loves to be our little helper around the house. She helps carry laundry to the washing machine, picks up all of her toys (and puts them up when we vacuum), and loves to set the table. She amazed us one day when playing with blocks, as you can see above. Our girl understands the concept of symmetry!
Next weekend we will celebrate Chinese New Year, so we will post more pictures after the celebration!
