Chariots of Fire

This is an old video in regards to Kate's life, but I just sat down and finally downloaded some videos. This is definitely one of my favs. Kate begins her training early as a long distance Olympic runner.

Kate is 2 Months Old!

Time has flown by! Kate is really starting to develop a little personality. Some of the new things she can do are smile (finally!), "talk" back and forth, and hold a rattle for a short period of time. She LOVES being outside, and it will usually immediately calm her down if she's fussy. Lance and I have taken her on a few walks around the neighborhood in her Jeep carrier, which is good for us exercise wise. Especially Lance, since he is carrying around 12 extra pounds.

For our 2 month doctor visit, Kate is in the 90th percentile in both weight and length. 12 lbs 12 ounces, 23 inches long. At 2 months, Lance weighed 16 lbs 8 ounces!!! Luckily, she's not quite caught up to Dad in that department!

The latest daily photos

Lance and I are still going strong on our daily photos....we ALMOST missed Day 57, and we realized it at 11:45pm. Luckily, Miss Kate was sleeping soundly in her crib and allowed us to sneak in and take a photo of her sleeping. The flash was so bright, you would never know the light was turned off in the photo. Here are the latest!


Hanging out on my changing table




One of my favorite things to do is recline on my Boppy!

I'm liking my bouncer well enough now to stay in it and not cry...but I still don't have to be happy about it.




Aren't I cute in my outfit from Bonnie Castille?




This swaddle blanket is for babies 8-12 lbs. I'm over 12 lbs, so my blanket is a little tight. Luckily, Mommy bought "The Miracle Blanket" that is adjustable. It's the only way I sleep 6 hours at a time!






I spit up A LOT, so I'm always covered in bibs and spit rags!




Love Me, Love Me Not - We choose Love Me!




Just Do It!

Happy Mother's Day!

I had a wonderful 1st Mother's Day celebrating with my own little family of 3 and then visiting with our two mothers. Lance (and Kate) gave me a beautiful necklace (which I'm wearing in the photo), and a sweet card to remember the day. This is the first family photo (taken at Nana and Pop's house) that Kate is smiling, sort of, for the camera!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!



In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I remembered that someone had given Kate a precious embroidered top. I thought it looks "festive" for the occasion, so of course, we needed a photo op! We also took our first walk around the neighborhood in the baby carrier, not the stroller....the streets on my block are AWFUL for a stroller....wayyyy toooo bumpy! I'm so disappointed!
