  1. Kate, 5 months

    December 9, 2013 by frecklesandsunshine

    Whew! It has been a busy couple weeks. We traveled to Champaign, IL for Thanksgiving. It was lovely to spend the holiday with family. Then, as soon as we got back to St. Louis, it was time to start preparing for Christmas. As usual, the years are short and the days are long. 

    In the midst of it all, our baby girl turned 5 months old. Everyone tells you that the time flies by and that’s true. I have to say, though, it seems more true for Kate than it did for Olivia. Maybe it is because I have another child to share my attention or maybe we are just busier as a family, but gosh, wasn’t she just born yesterday??

  2. Introducing Kate

    October 29, 2013 by frecklesandsunshine

    The biggest event of 2013 for our family will by far be the birth of Katherine Elizabeth. Born on June 26, she weighed 7 lbs 13 oz and was 21.75 inches long. She is named after both of our paternal grandmothers. Tim’s grandmother, Katherine, and my grandmother, Elsie Elizabeth.

    My pregnancy was relatively uneventful. Unlike my pregnancy with Olivia, I did not have any extra monitoring and everything went smoothly. The birth was a bit more exciting. My blood pressure bottomed out right after Kate was born and she had trouble stabilizing her body temperature. Everything was resolved fairly quickly, but it was a bit nerve wracking for a few moments.

    Kate, as we call her, is the sweetest, happiest baby. She cries at the typical times, for the typical reasons, but otherwise she looks like this 24/7.

    Olivia was content and happy, but this girl has given us more smiles and giggles in four months than O gave us in her first year!

    At four months old now, she smiles, giggles, squeals and squawks, reaches for toys, holds up her head, rolls in both directions, sits when propped, and “stands” while supported. You know, just your basic genius. :)

    I can’t wait to see who she turns out to be.
