Happy Father's Day!


Happy Father's Day, David!

Today is David's 1st Father's day. I hope he had a good day. We were actually driving most of the day. We spent the weekend in Shreveport with David's brother, Ben and his family. We had a great time, and I'm already working on a post for that...its gonna be a long one! :)
Anyway, I wanted to post a little about David on this Father's day. He has been such a help to me since Norah Kate was born, and has really changed my attitude, for the better, on MANY occasions. I know without a doubt that this experience was only as great as it was because of him. I love you, David! I know that David is already a great Dad, and that will continue in the future. I was reminded of that again this weekend when I saw how he interacted with his niece and nephew.
So, David had already picked out a watch for Father's Day, but we HAD to get him a little surprise, so I found this cheap "Smoothies" cookbook for him. He is really getting into smoothies, so I thought this would be great! Norah Kate looks like she's really enjoying it too! :)

So, we are just winding down for the night and trying to get things back in order after being gone for a few days. I want to say a big HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to my Dad and Father-in-law too. I am so lucky to have these men in my life. Enjoy the day!

Who's excited to be 3 months old...

THIS GIRL!!!


Okay, so I'm way behind on this post...but its been a progressive thing. Download a few pics here and there and now I'm finally adding the text! Our little Norah Kate was 3 months on June 6! Here are some stats, etc.:

12 lb 3 oz

25 inches long!

Eating every 3.5 hours

Sleeping ALL NIGHT! from 10p - 7:30a

She is starting to laugh some now which we LOVE...we work really hard to get her to laugh. :) She is also pushing up on her arms, turning over from stomach to back, and reaching/grabbing toys (just starting). She L O V E S Chula...especially when Chula licks her in the face...she just smiles. (We are trying to teach Chula not to lick her in the face, but its not working well so far)


Family Picture (NK has her eyes closed, but she's smiling)

So...one of my sweet patient's parents from St. Jude, The Nasons, sent Norah Kate this Baby Einstein exersaucer as a gift. Well, Norah Kate is just now able to "kind of" sit in it. I put her in it the other day and she "found" the toys. I laughed so hard because it was like the greatest thing to her. Here are some pictures...you can see what I mean.

"Wow, Mom! Where did THIS come from?!"

Smiling at the toys!


"Oh my gosh! This is the coolest thing I've ever seen!" Thanks Nasons!


We are really having a great time with Norah Kate. Tomorrow we are leaving to head to Shreveport to see David's brother, Ben, our sis-in-law, Kristen, and NK's cousins Isabella and Brooks. I can't wait to see how all of the kids interact.

Playdate!







When Lauren & I were young my parents "adopted" a college student from Williams Baptist, Johnna. She has been like a sister to us and we've been able to keep in touch throughout the years. She sent Norah Kate these PJs, and I think they are so cute!

Well that's all for now folks! See you soon!

For Ron

David and his Dad, Ron planted this grass in the backyard. We wanted him to see how good it was looking! Thanks for your help, Ron!
