10 Weeks Old

Ha Ha Ha, Somethings funny!

Adventures in Babysitting.........

Well, I started back to work 2 weeks ago and life has been pretty hectic ever since. I only work 3 days a week but it is still hard getting back in the swing of things. I was taking Katelyn to a church daycare but decided I would rather have her at home while she is so little. I called a girl named Kristin I know from Iowa Park that has worked at daycares in the past and asked her if she would be interested in being my nanny 3 days a week. She happens to be taking a couple semesters off school and jumped at the opportunity. I couldn't be happier with the arrangement. I know Katelyn is getting one on one attention and I don't have to take her out of the house in the mornings. What a blessing! Kristin has worked out great so far. My friend LeAnn told me to call her if Kristin ever called in sick or anything and I already had to take her up on her offer the first week. Poor Kristin got the stomach bug that is going around and couldn't keep Katelyn today so LeAnn bailed me out. I am posting some cute pics that LeAnn took to chronicle her day keeping Katelyn and her nephew, Owen. So funny!

9 Weeks Old and a New Discovery

Well Katelyn is Nine Weeks old this week and finally noticed the pink stuffed butterfly that hangs on her carseat. Brian loaded her in the back of my car and all of a sudden her eyes locked in. She seriously stared at it for 10 minutes straight. So cute! Her are some pics of the new discovery.

8 Weeks.....

Katelyn is 8 weeks old this week. Time is going by so fast! Week 8 means the end of my maternity leave, which makes me very sad. Fortunately my boss is going to allow me to work 3 days a week until the end of the year and then I will go to 4 days a week. I am very thankful he is allowing me to have more time at home with Ms. Katelyn. I know she will be in good hands while I am working, but I still hate the thought of being away from her. On a brighter note, Katelyn got a new cousin(actually 2nd cousin) since my last post. Kylie Mills was born on October 1st to Michael and Ashley Mills. I am so excited about Katelyn having a little cousin who will be so close to her age. We also found out my sister will be adding to the mix with a new baby in June!!! So exciting! Hayden keeps telling everyone he is going to be a sister, which really means he wants a sister. I guess we will start having to make reservations for babysitting at Grandmas when all these babies get here. Ha!

Cute Pics To Share

Don't have a story to go with these, just wanted to share them.

Barnyard Birthday Party

Katelyn got to attend her very first friend birthday party at 6 and a half weeks old. Her future best friend, Savannah turned 1. So maybe Katelyn wasn't quite big enough to enjoy all of the animals at the petting zoo or the bounce house, we still had a great time. Thanks Johnson family for inviting us!!!
