Lazy Saturday!

I think we may be on the mend!

Kate woke up with a low grade fever but has been fever free since about lunch time!  Hopefully she stays that way!  I am also starting to feel a bit better!

Kate spent some time playing on her new foam mat today!  My living room is officially decorated in primary colors.  Anything to keep Kate's head from smacking the hardwoods, right?

I am still playing around with my new lens and trying to decide if I'm going to keep it.  I find it to be a bit soft - but I think that's because I got spoiled with how awesome my 50mm f/1.4 is.  Maxine suggested that I lower my shutter speed to hopefully decrease the "noise" in the pictures.  I also had to up my ISO a good bit due to the lighting in our living room but, I think it all worked together nicely!

Kate enjoyed playing with her new favorite toy for a while today!  I promise she loves this toy - she was just aggravated that I had the camera in her face yet again!

If any of you have little ones who love the remote, I highly suggest the Sesame Street Silly Sounds Remote!  Kate loves it so much and hasn't grabbed for our real remote since we gave her this toy!

She also spent some time just looking cute!

Even though we are all feeling a better, I think we pushed our luck this afternoon when we tried to take Kate to the park.  I thought she might want to get out of the house and enjoy some fresh air.  But, it was in the low 90s and just too hot for her. 

We lasted about 15 minutes at the park and Kate was pretty fussy most of the time there.  I did manage to get one smile out of her while swinging though!  And, if anyone is wondering, I wiped the swing down with an antibacterial wipe before putting Kate in - so, while I might be helping create a super bug that kills all of mankind, at least I know she isn't sucking on anything nasty when she chews on the swing!  (I'm sure a few of you will get a chuckle out of that one!)

Fussy pant Kate wanted her Daddy and not the swing.

Here's my favorite picture of the day!  Her eyelashes, sweet button nose, and perfect pout are simply amazing to me!  I love this sweet girl so much!!!  Thank you Maxine for another amazing edit!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  I'm bummed we had to cancel our beach plans but I know this low key weekend at home is exactly what the three of us need to get well again!

Once again, beautiful pictures! Also, thanks for the remote suggestion! Greg started teaching Max that remotes are toys and I have been trying - not very successfully - to break him of that habit!

I am glad your sweet girl is feeling better. Great photos. I adore the last picture. Gorgeous!

I think we'll all survive you using an anti-bacterial wipe. Super bug or not. We're all still alive.

She looks so cute in that swing with her floppy hat.

Great pictures! You are getting so good!

She is a lovely little girl, even when she doesn't feel well.

Wow, I've missed a lot! It was so hot this weekend here too! I laid out while the kids where napping-instead of doing something productive, like cleaning! Ha! Anyway, I LOVE that last picture! Amazing!

LOL at the antibacterial comment.

And how the heck do you guys manage to still be super cute while not feeling very well?
