One Month and Still Breathing

And that "still breathing" is a big accomplishment for Ryan and I. When we brought Kate home from the hospital a month ago this was our one goal. We can now proudly give ourselves a pat on the back. We still don't have much of an idea of what we are doing, but we are enjoying figuring it out. Luckily Kate is pretty patient with us. We have had so much fun watching her grow this past month. We cannot believe how big our little baby is already.

Last week my sister and brother-in-law came down from Portland to see Kate and while they were down my sister took some beautiful pictures of our little girl. We absolutely love them. Thank you Jaymie!!

P.S. I cannot get the text to change from black right now, so I hope you can read the wording. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

The Best Present Ever

My first Mother's Day was perfect thanks to my two special people. Ryan stayed home with Kate so that I could go to church with my parents. When we got home from church Ryan had Kate dressed up beautifully in a little pink dress and had a tiny gift bag hung over her arm. It was the sweetest thing I had ever seen. I had to fight back the tears. My sweet Ryan got me other little gifts, but the best one of all was my beautiful little girl.

Mother's Day was also wonderful because I got to spend it with my mom. I love her so much and I am so grateful that I have such a wonderful example to follow as I try to figure out how to be a mother myself.

Happy belated Mother's Day to all!!!

One Happy Kid

Okay so it might just be gas, but we will enjoy the fake smiles until the real ones come in.

Sleepy Head

It is true when they say that newborns like to sleep (at least during the day). Kate is a champ when it comes to sleeping. You could do anything to her and it wouldn't even start to stir her from her comatose state. Now I know how Anne Geddes gets her babies to stay asleep in all those weird positions.
