Photo Shoot!

We have a little shop in Lumberton called "Many Pearls", and I went to go buy some flipflops for myself, and of course, browse the baby section! I found two really cute flower headbands for $2 each! When I got home, I made Kate play photo shoot again while I documented my awesome find!

Happy Baby!

Look how strong I'm getting!

This photo would be better if my legs weren't in it!

3 Months Old!

Kate is 3 months old today, and time is FLYING by. We went to the hospital last night to visit Eric and Jaime Laing who just welcomed their son, Griffin Jude, into the world. Holding Griffin reminded me of when Kate was born...and honestly, I don't remember her being that light, and Griffin weighs one pound more than Kate did when she was born.


Sticking my tongue out at Mommy!

Lately, she loves chewing on her hand and sucking her bottom lip which means an excess of drool and spit. Bibs have become a staple in her wardrobe. Good thing we have about 40 of them!

My hand tastes soooo good

Swimming!

Note to self. Before trying to take a 2 month old swimming, make sure she's had a good nap beforehand. Overall, the experience was blog worthy!
Little swimmers don't come small enough for me. We opted to go without and prayed for no poopies :) Unfortunately, Kate is probably not the first to pee in the Poulter pool.
Look how tiny I still look on the carpet!

Dad - rescue me...I'm not sure about this

Augh! I hate this Mom...I need my nap and it's hot!

This is better...

:(

Maybe if I bend this way...

Happy enough to take a quick family picture.
Grandmother rescued me

Taking a bath after swimming to get off the chlorine and suntan lotion. Shortly after this picture was taken, I took a 3 hour nap. Swimming is hard work.

Shopping with Grandmother is Fun!

Soooo, I really haven't bought my daughter anything, because she's surrounded by relatives that do it for me! Not that I'm complaining! Today was especially fun because I got to choose the clothes for Miss K. My mom and I raided Baby Gap and Gymboree (both having a sale!) and came home with a generous stack of clothes....and we did show some restraint. There are just too many cutie bootie outfits for kids! I see a future where I spend a lot of money on clothes...for both myself and for Kate. Lance...I'm sorry in advance.

2 Months Photoshoot

Kate had her 2 months photoshoot done today at JC Penney. No smiles were captured in the process, but she didn't cry! I was happy about that! /here are a few that I captured from the website...I only ordered a few. I could go broke during this first year with pictures if I'm not careful!

All you need is love...



They kept sticking this ugly, plastic flower bouquet in her hands...
I wonder who else has touched that.

Just what are you looking at?

I look my chubbiest straight on the camera!

Mommy has a picture just like this when she was little.
