5 months old

July was a very busy month for Cate. We went to Gatlinburg with the Spurlin Family. Our 1st family trip. She was a perfect angel on the drive to and from. While we were there she learned how to push herself backwards while laying on her back. And she got to spend time with her cousins Bryce & Caleb. And she met her 2nd cousin Brayden who is 2. Next year those two will be to little heartbreakers getting what they want.

Each and every day it is a new trick! She can now sit up for a while by herself. She has mastered rolling from her back to front, but can't figure out how to get back over. Still no teeth, but I believe they will be in soon! Two weeks ago we introduced rice cereal to Cate. She loves it! Her favorite place to eat it is outside where she can watch everything. Cate is also a talker!! She has started talking to everyone these days. She definitely makes sure everyone that walks past her takes note.

Wednesday July 29th. 6 months

We go for our six month check up tomorrow which is good as she is fighting a cold right now. I will start posting at the end of every month. In August Cate will start going to the University of Louisville's Early Learning Center. I am sure this is going to be a learing experience for all three of us! We will keep you posted!

Growing like a weed

I am sorry it has been so long since we posted. Cate is now 19 weeks 4 days old. I know I say this every time I post, but she is such a joy! She smiles for everyone. The only fusses are when she is hungry or tired. She never stops moving. Mark keeps saying she will run a marathon before her feet hit the ground. She is our little wiggle worm!! She loves to eat her hands these days. She is trying to grab her feet. I figure she will have that down by the end of this week. Last week Grammy taught her to squeal!! That has been fun to hear.

On June 7 we had her baptised at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in New Albany. She was a perfect angel during the ceremony. Her Aunt Rosie and Uncle Jeremy are her Godparents. I think Mark & I realized just how lucky we are and how much everyone loves Baby Cate that day.

I believe Cate has now met every Great Aunt and Uncle. Her Great Aunt Nellie came in town from NC this weekend. It was so good to see her and of course Cate had to have her picture taken with her. When the cameras come out Cate just stops and looks.

Here are a few new pictures of Cate. Mommy has returned to work. It hasn't been easy. Thank goodness for Grammy, Grandma, & Jennifer (our neighbor). They have all watched Cate and listened to Mommy cry on a daily basis. Daddy just shakes his head...he doesn't know what to do.

Cate is 3 months old now and enjoying the new discovery of her hands and voice. When I was little my Uncle Calvin called me chatty cathy or motor mouth...with the amount of talking Cate is doing I think she is going to follow in my footsteps. Mark can really get her talking! She is definitely a Daddy's Girl!!

12 weeks old

Easter and Play Dates

Cate's First Fishin' Cap.

Now she needs her pink diamond encrusted fishin' pole and she is ready to go fishin' with Papa.

Cate's 1st Easter Basket.

1st Play Date with Sinclaire. They are 3 weeks apart.

Cate is 10.5 weeks old now. She is sleeping through the night and on a schedule during the day. Now that the weather is turning nicer we go some where almost every day. Last week Cate had her first play date with Sinclaire. They both slept through most of it! I am sure that will change in the near future. Last week we went to the park, but Cate slept through it too. She is growing up so quickly. We have graduated to size 1 diapers at night. She is leaving the newborn diapers behind. Each day it is a new sound. This week she can't take her eyes off her daddy. Easter was a lot of fun, but she was exhausted at the end of the day. Next big adventure is staying with the babysitter when mommy goes back to work on April 23. Stay tuned for more...

8 weeks old

1st Easter Picture 8 week 7days

Smiles that melt your heart 8weeks 5 days

Cate discovered herself in the mirror 7week 7days

WOW 8 weeks has arrived. We can't believe it! Cate went to the doctor this week. She weighs 9 lbs 2 oz (15th percentile) and is 22.75 inches long (60th percentile). Our long lean baby! She also received three shots and an oral vaccine. She did fever or fussiness. Grammy has been on Spring Break this week so we have spent lots of time with her. Each day Cate does something to melt our heart (especially her daddy's heart). She has him right where she wants him & if I have to guess it is going to continue for many years. :)

After shots 7weeks 6 days

Aunt Rosie & Aunt Mary Ann 7weeks 4 days

6 weeks old

6 weeks old. Look how much I have grown. Soon I'll be bigger then this dog!

Wow how time flies!! Our Baby Cate is now 6 weeks old. I believe she has now met all of her Great Aunts and most of her Great Uncles. She is growing so quickly. I took her to the doctor this week due to excessive fussiness. She now weighs 8 lbs 12 oz (with clothes & a wet diaper). The doctor said her fussiness is most likely due to the meal I ate on Sunday mixed in with a little colic.

The past two weeks Cate has discovered the ceiling fan in our bedroom. She has also lost her umbillical cord. Every day is something new. She is fighting naps during the day, but for the most part sleeping about 4 hours straight at night. We are enjoying each and every day with her. When she is old enough to read this I hope she knows just how much we love her. I can't even remember what life was like without her.

4 weeks old

Can you believe it has been four weeks already? Even with a couple of sleepless nights I wouldn't trade this. Cate now weighs 7lbs 15 oz and is 22 inches long. She is in the 25th percentile for weight and 75th percentile for length. This week she started to wear her 0-3 month clothes, but some of the sleepers are too short when she stretches out. Daddy and Cate spent their 1st few hours alone on Tuesday night. Mommy had a meeting and was very concerned that Cate would be her typical fussy self while away, but she wasn't. Maybe I should leave more often as we even had a great night sleep. It has been a wonderful 4 weeks. We wish time would slow down.

Lunch w/Aunt Mary Ann.

My new swing Mommy bought so I can go to work with her.
I am starting to like this a little more.
