New Watch

Madeline got this watch in her stocking. (I had actually purchased it with Emily in mind - but decided to give it to Maddie) I'm so glad I did. She LOVES it. I would say it is BY FAR her favorite Christmas gift that has stood the test of time. (Pun intended!)

Tonight was our last night of gymnastics, at least for awhile. The girls always start by stretching out.

At the end of class they all get their hands stamped.

Sling It

I am SO GLAD I bought this sling. I have LOVED it. . . and I still do. Kate is ALWAYS content in it. It is wonderful for when we are out and about.

Mary Kay mom?

Don't tell my fellow Mary Kay ladies . . . my girls do NOT seem to have the "make up" gene. They end up looking like painted Indians after a make up session. (I have a feeling that is politically incorrect?)

Maddies cheeks were red for days - I'm not sure if it was 1. stain 2. from scrubbing or 3. she reacted to the make up.

Big Gulp

Brian had this drink at dinner one night - and Kate was interested in it. I wish you could hear how the girls giggled at Kate holding this huge cup. It was sooo funny.

Baby Girl

Here is a dress my friend, Steph, bought for Kate. Sooo sweet. She was all dressed and ready for church. Speaking of church. . . this is the first baby I have had that is AWESOME in the nursery. She has been fine in there from the start. And the workers LOVE her- especially the men. They practically fight to get her, which makes me feel wonderful!!!

The princess and her frog.

Daddy's Girl

I think Brian and I are both trying to drink in Kate as our last baby. I asked him the other night one.more.time. if he was at all open to the idea of us adopting. He is not. So, I will continue to prepare to rid our house of baby stuff. :( I do not think adopting is a wise decision for us financially, but I keep thinking of the verse: true religion as God sees it is this: caring for widows and orphans in distress. I just want to so bad in my heart. We'll see. . .

Polka Dots

Kate got this chair for Christmas from Aunt Jill and Uncle George. Brian and I gave her the dress. She turned 5 months old the day I took these pictures (over a month ago).
Sweet Baby!
