Visiting family

While we were in Monticello this weekend Kate got to meet lots of new people! We had so much fun spending time with all of our family. We got to go see Mamaw Bessie on Sunday also. The kids had an Easter egg hunt. Poor Blake couldn't see the eggs right in front of him, but Haley and Annabelle were really good at it!

Stacey's wedding

Saturday Stacey and Brandon got married and Blake and Drew were the ring bearers. Annabelle was the flower girl. Haley handed out programs. They all looked beautiful! The wedding was outside and was so wonderful. The reception was at the country club, we had so much fun! Here are some pics...

6 weeks old!

Today Kate is 6 weeks old. She's starting to stay up more during the day, but she still wakes up about every 4 hours. She is smiling a lot more and trying to talk. She hardly fusses at all. She is so sweet and beautiful. We are so lucky to have all of our wonderful kids! We love them so much.

5 weeks!

Our internet has been messed up for a week so I haven't been able to post Kate's one month blog yet. I wrote it out and tried to attach pictures and it stopped working. So this one is from my phone.
We have been running around all week and she has been so good! She smiled at Haley and Blake for the first time today! They were so excited. She's been in a really good mood today and smiling so much!

St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Haley was in her variety show at school tonight. A group of kids that are in the 4th grade with her got together and did a 70's dance remix. It was so cute!

Meeting cousin Mabry

Today we went to Sheridan to meet up with Papaw and Mamaw. They were meeting Julie and Mabry there with her parents and sister. They were in Sheridan at her soon to be sister-in-laws' bridal shower. We all went to eat at Mazzio's. Mabry is so gorgeous! She was laughing and talking to us. It's amazing how much I love someone I've never even met! We had so much fun! Earlier that day we went up to Baptist to see Chris and the Heart Hospital to see Kristin and Jeri. Kate got passed around. Then Blake had t-ball practice(which he could care less about). All in all it was a very good birthday-busy, but good.

1 month old!

Kate is one month old today. Another Friday the 13th. It's crazy how there were 2 in a row. Is that normal? Anyway, we celebrated by going to Target and getting diapers! We go through LOTS of diapers! She likes me to put a clean one on her before she goes. :) Can't poop in a dirty diaper! She's already spoiled! haha She's been doing very well at night. She usually gets up once or twice depending on how late we get in bed(she likes to stay up late). Blake has another T-ball practice tonight. Maybe this one will go a little better. He's been asking all week to go to practice. He's so funny, sometimes he calls Kate "my baby Katie". It's precious. He's still very protective of her and wants to love on her and kiss her all the time. If someone asks to take her home with them he gets very upset. He came up to me this morning and said "I love you and my baby Katie". He may like to get into things, but he is such a loving little boy. Now that Kate is here he seems so much bigger and older. It makes me sad that he is growing up, but sometimes he lets me call him my baby. Haley is going to be in the talent show at her school Tuesday night, so we're real excited about that. A group of kids in her grade are doing a dance. I'll post some pictures next week. As for now, more of baby Kate...

3 weeks old!

As of yesterday Miss Kate turned 3 weeks old. Time is flying by! She is so sweet. She really has her days and nights mixed up. We have been staying up most of the night and then she tries to sleep all day. Blake had his first t-ball practice last night. He wasn't very interested though. He did good when he was out there actually practicing. Alot of the time he just wanted to run around and play. His team is going to be called the bears. Their colors are yellow and black. I hope he likes playing. We'll see...

Surprise Visitors

Today Mamaw came to see Kate before she went to her doctors appointment. She brought 2 very special people with her we didn't know were coming. Aunt Rhonda and cousin Annabelle! We were so excited to see them. It was their first time to see baby Kate. I wish they could have stayed longer! Here are some pictures. I still think Blake and Annabelle look a lot alike!

Bath Time!

Last night Kate had her first "real bath". She did so good. She is such a big girl. Here are some pictures(and yes we are in the laundry room-it gets so warm in there!).
