"Go Kate, Go!!!"

"Go Kate, Go!!!"  It's a phrase we hear often, often when she is going down the slide upstairs.  When we were teaching her to go up the stairs on the slide on her own, we would encourage her by saying, "Go Kate, Go," and she picked up the phrase and loves it!

Recently, we were getting Liam ready for bed, and Kate fell backward from the slide and landed on the back of her head.  She started crying, and Jared went to pick her up and hold her.  She immediately pushed away from him, saying, through her tears, "Go Kate, Go."  She repeated it all the way up the stairs.  After she got to the bottom of the slide, she turned, no longer crying (but still rubbing her head), and had a big smile.  It was a precious moment of overcoming for our little baby girl!
