The Past Five Months

Kaitlyn is now six months old! She's such a sweetheart and Ben and I (and everyone else we know) just love her to bits. She has been rolling around for the past couple of months and I think we can now say she is officially crawling. She had her scooting down but I'm pretty sure I saw a legitimate crawl last night. So now we have the fun task of baby-proofing!

Since so much has happened in the last five months I will just post some highlights.

In April, Ben's younger sister, Megan, graduated from BYU-Hawaii so we decided we had to go and see her. We actually started planning this trip before I became pregnant and almost weren't going to go when we found out. After we figured out she would only be a couple of months old and still in her mostly sleeping all day phase we decided we'd be ok. We went with Ben's parents and aunt and uncle and we met up with his older sister, Tiffany, and her husband, Craig.

Pearl Harbor

Laie Hawaii Temple

We spent a day at the Polynesian Cultural Center and it was a lot of fun. Megan's friends work there and we got some special treatment at one of the villiages and on our canoe ride. It was a neat experience and a beautiful place. Definitely one of the best parts of the trip.

Kaitlyn's first dip in the ocean. A wave came and scared her so she wasn't very impressed with the whole experience.

Hawaii was great. It was sometimes a challenge being there with a two month old but overall Kaitlyn did awesome and we had a good time.

Memorial Day

This was Kaitlyn's first time camping. Although, I don't think we can count it since we just drove up both days. We didn't think sleeping in a tent with a three month old would go very well.

Random shot at Avo Maria's house.

Here we are getting ready to go to the Portuguese festa in Wendell.

In July my sister, Marcia, and her two boys, Ayden and Brady, and my grandpa came to visit my parents. They decided to come see me in Boise for the day and we went to the Zoo.

We had breakfast with the lions. Very cool.

Kaitlyn rode a tiger just like her daddy did on our first date. His tiger was a little bit bigger though.

Before church. She takes the Sabbath very seriously. Ben on the other hand is trying to give her bunny ears in the back...

In May, Ben blessed Kaitlyn. I'm so happy to have a worthy Priesthood holder in our home and it was a great day full of family and friends.

Our friends, Natalie and Tyler, have an awesome camera and were kind enough to do a little photo shoot for us.

These six months have been full of laughter and tears, joy and hardships but most of all love. We love our little girl more than we could ever express. She is such a sweet baby, always ready with a smile for us and everyone she meets.

1 Month!

I can't believe that tomorrow little Kaitlyn will be a month old. She's gotten so big already I can barely remember how tiny she was.
We had an awesome photographer come over when Kaitlyn was two weeks old and we got some amazing pictures.
I love this little girl!!!

Well, it's 4 AM and in an effort to not throw up for the eleventh time tonight I decided to be a little bit productive. The dishes are almost done and now I think I'll work on a blog post that I've been meaning to do for awhile.

Pregnancy pictures!

20 weeks. Half way there!
(October 3rd)
23 weeks (October 24th)

27 weeks (November 19th)

31 weeks (December 19th)

I'm finally starting to show enough that people actually know I'm pregnant and not just eating too many donuts. My favorite comment was a couple of weeks ago... "I didn't know you were pregnant. You look the same." Really?! I've gained 20 pounds!!! How do I look the same?
It has been a blessing to not have to buy very much maternity clothes yet though. I'm still going strong with just a couple of pairs of maternity pants and shirts. Of course I have to use a rubberband on my old pants but as long as no one else can tell I don't care :)
