What we've been up to!

We've had a lot going on around here and I just haven't found the time to blog!  Kate is little miss busy britches and is at the phase where she wants me on the floor playing with her all day long!  I love it but it definitely means less time to do things like blog!

So, here's what we've been up to!

We had a little family outting to the zoo on Valentine's day!  Alex took off for the afternoon so we could all hang out!  Crappy iPhone picture because I forgot my camera at the house.

Kate sat in a high chair at dinner!  Such a big girl!  We are learning this parenting thing as we go - and we learned that we need to hold her while waiting on our food and put her in the high chair when our food comes.  She lasted about 15 minutes in the highchair before she wanted to do something else - which meant my arms were free while we waited for food and I ate with a baby in my arms!  First time mom fail - but, I did learn my lesson!!

Kate and I hung out on the front porch because the weather was AMAZING!

We introduced a lovie at bedtime and it has been wonderful!  I got the muslin Aden + Anias security blankets as they are very breatheable and Kate loves them.  She goes down with one in each hand and rubs the satin on her cheeks as she falls asleep!  I need to order another pack so we have back up lovies!

Kate practiced her wheel spin in hopes of "coming on down" at the Price is Right.  Girl can spin!  She is sure to win us a Showcase Showdown! 

She is playing with her Leap Frog Spin and Sing Alphabet Zoo.

We had a little photo shoot today!  Kate is totally over looking at the camera!
She also enjoyed her teething toy!  Drool is totally out of control these days and her gums are swollen.  I really think a tooth is close to popping through!
Kate's 6 month well baby is tomorrow and she will get her shots.  Poor baby also has to have a blood draw at Children's after her appointment with the Pediatrician.  I'm sure we will get in lots of snuggle time tomorrow afternoon!
On a very happy note, our dear friend Andy and Amy welcomed sweet Cooper into this world yesterday!  We are thrilled for them and cannot wait to meet Kate's newest friend!

She get cuter by the day. We're coming to Houston soon to visit family and I can't wait to soak up the (hopefully) great weather and we're planning on visiting the zoo as well. C has been absolutely miserable with teething lately and I pray that a tooth pops through soon. His doctor says any day and I hope she's right.

I hope that her appointments pass by quickly and that the pokes aren't too miserable :(

I just love sweet Kate! It sure does look like she is a busy girl these days. And thank you for the encouraging words on my blog! You are such a strong woman and even more so that you draw your strength from God.

I can't believe that Alex shared his pink fuzzy blanket with Kate!! :) haha.
She's so stinkin' cute! We can't wait for you guys to come back to FL so we can love on her!
Love and Miss you
