Blake's zoo trip & 10 weeks old!

Blake had his preschool trip to the zoo yesterday. He LOVED it. It was also Kate's first zoo trip. She was so good. She just sat in her seat and strolled around all morning! Blake was very good also. He stayed by Chris and I and didn't try to run around at all-which if you don't know him, is awesome! :) And it goes without saying, that Haley was perfect. I'm so proud of the lot of them! Ha. We got to ride the train, which I remember being way cooler when I was a kid, so hopefully they thought so too! After we left the zoo we went and ate at Buffalo Grill(where Chris and I met) to see some of his old work buddies. Even though it's been several years ago, there were still lots of people there that he knew. He got to show off his big family! When we got home Blake, Kate, and Daddy took a nap while I took Haley to dance. After dance we went straight to the ball park for Blake's t-ball game. He did so much better! He still isn't that interested, but at least he stayed put in his place. He always hits the ball good, but it's iffy whether or not he'll run to the base. Usually it's just a really slow trot! The team we played last night was really good, so he got out a couple of times, but he did make it home once. Yay Blake! Maybe next year will go better!










Kate is 10 weeks today! She is doing wonderful! Besides one really bad night, she has been sleeping between 7-9 hours every night! She loves to smile and talk. She is perfect. She finally rolled over for Chris the other night. When you try to lay her back, she tries to sit up. She doesn't want to miss anything! We also got to meet one of my friend Theresa's little boy on Monday. He is so precious! Kate thought so too!

9 weeks

Last Thursday Kate had her 2 month check up and shots. Here are her measurements: weight-birth 7lbs 9ozs, 2 months 10lbs 6ozs(35th percentile); length-birth 19in, 2months 23in(72nd percentile); head-birth 13in, 2 months 15in(30th percentile). I can't believe she's grown 4 inches! That's crazy! She still seems so little. The nurse practitioner said she was growing good and everything was great. She couldn't believe that Kate's rolling over. She said she must be trying to keep up with everyone. I'm sure that's true! Friday she turned 9 weeks old. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful baby. She is so sweet. Haley and Blake are enjoying her as much as Chris and I do. Saturday we went to my cousin Angela's wedding. We are so happy for her. After the wedding we went to Nana's to visit. Blake and Reese had so much fun playing with each other. Reese is HILARIOUS! And the best news of all-Kate slept 7 hours in a row last night. Maybe she'll keep this up. I'm so proud of her! She is such a big girl.

Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! We started off the day by going to the early service at First Baptist Church. Bro Rick gave an awesome sermon. The music was exellent. My mom went with us and she thought the same! Then we all went to mom's for lunch. Even though it was raining we had so much fun! The kids got another Easter basket at Nana's. They loved it! We hid eggs inside so they could still hunt. It was hilarious. We had wonderful food!

Dying Easter Eggs!

We went to my mom's this afternoon and her and Haley made some cupcakes and dyed eggs. After we got home Haley and Blake dyed eggs. They had a lot of fun. Here are the pictures!

2 months old and major milestone!

Kate turned 2 months old yesterday! She is such a big girl! Yesterday a woman asked me how old she was and when I told her she said-she's so little! She looks like a newborn! She is still tiny. She goes to the doctor for her 2 month check-up on Thursday so we'll find out all her measurements and weight then. And also find out what percentile she's in. I'm anxious to find out!

A couple of days ago Kristin and her boyfriend came to see us. Kate slept the whole time, but Blake got a picture for me. We are so glad they came over! I really miss Kristin since I never get to see her anymore. I'm use to working 12 hour shifts with her so it's a big change! Blake loves taking pictures. I'm constantly finding his work on my camera. And he does a really good job! He likes to take pictures of his power rangers too. It's hilarious!



Last night Kate rolled over from front to back! I was squealing! Chris was already in bed, but Haley was up with us and we couldn't believe it! And just to be sure I had her do it over and over again! I'm so excited. I caught the end of it on video. She is also smiling and cooing a lot more this week. Last night Haley was playing with her and she loved it! She was smiling and talking back to Haley. Everytime Haley would stick her tongue out at Kate, she would stick hers back out at her! We were laughing so hard. I'm so glad Blake and Haley love her so much. Blake has been calling her his little cutie pie! He still loves to kiss her all the time.

Haley has her first science fair project this year. It's due on the 22nd. She's testing which diaper is the most absorbent. We're having a lot of fun with it.

7 weeks and t-ball with Blake

Kate is almost 2 months old! I can't believe it! She is sweeter than ever. Smiling a lot and still wanting to cuddle. She is still on a 4 hour sleep schedule at night, which I think is pretty good. She still won't take a bottle though. I've tried 5 different kinds now. She still doesn't like pacifiers either. Haley was the same way. Blake took a bottle but he wouldn't take a pacifier either. I guess I'm lucky that I've never had to wean a child off a pacifier, I heard it's very hard to do!




the end of her beautiful smile






Blake had his first 2 t-ball games this weekend. Kate got to stay with her Nana. Blake did so good. Even though he mostly ran wild. I was laughing so hard, I was crying! He was running around, throwing his hat in the air. He was so excited his Papaw and Mamaw came! He kept coming up to the fence in the middle of the game, saying "I love you Mamaw!". It was so sweet! He may be a handful sometimes, but he is so loving. Here are some pictures...




he's so excited!

Grandparents

Kate finally got to meet my grandmother today. She thought Kate was the prettiest baby she's ever seen! Now Kate has met all of her great grandmas. They all think she is beautiful. We also went to Nana and Poppys house to visit them a couple of days ago. Nana can't go very long without holding her baby! Here are some pictures.
