Getting too Big








We knew that these pj's were getting a little small. It was the last night that she was going to ware them. When we got here out of bed we saw that she has burst out of them sometime during the night. She just keeps growing and growing. In fact, I fed her about an hour and a half ago. About a half hour ago I noticed that she was opening her mouth anytime anything got near it. I wondered if she might be hungry and decided to make her a little bottle. (This is not an uncommon thing, I am still working to increase my milk supply.) It took her about fifteen minutes to drink that bottle, and the two others that daddy made for her, totalling 5 and a half ounces. I don't know where she puts it all. She is really starting to chunk out though.



Katarina comes to karate with me on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Normally the instructor's wife is there and loves to watch her. Sometimes she is not there. On those days Katarina does karate with me. It normally puts her to sleep.

One day she was making a lot of noise after a nap and then quieted down before I got up to her room. This is how I found her. She is finding her thumb more and more often.


Katarina tried out her rocking chair. I think she is still a little small for it. :)


Katarina loves exploring things with her mouth. She still isn't very good at getting things to her mouth but whenever she does she takes advantage of it. I love watching her explore and discover.



This is the outfit that Sister French got for her at her baby shower. She looks really cute in it.


I thought the "deer in the head lights" look was very fitting for this outfit. I finally found the cord to the camera so that I could down load all of the pictures that I have been taking. I hope you have enjoyed them. Have a great week.

Kaboom go the Giggles!

We've been trying to capture Katarina giggling for a week or so now. Finally got the camera out in time. Isn't she adorable? We love our little girl soooooo much. Hope this brings a smile to everyone's day.

I still don't have my cord to connect the camera to the computer so I can't post any pictures from this week but I got the pictures of Katarina's baby blessing that my dad took. I had a very hard time picking my favorites. I love taking pictures of and looking at pictures of Katarina, I must be a mom or something. We had a pretty relaxing week. I got to go to karate on Tuesday and Thursday. The woman that normally watches Katarina during class wasn't there on Tuesday so she got to join me on the floor. She actually fell asleep as I did front kicks up and down the mat. It must have brought back memories of before she was born. Katarina has been very social this week. Friday evening my dad stopped by when he was in town for a few minutes. My mom stopped by after work on Saturday and played for a little while. She also talked with Jayme's parents multiple times on Skype. The most recent time that she talked with grandma she looked right at the screen and smiled and smiled. We are very excited, after almost a month without an oven we should be getting ours fixed. We are happy to be able to have more variety in our diet. We had Megan over for dinner on Thursday. We all had a fun time on the Wii and both Megan and Jayme logged a least thirty minutes on the wii fit. It was very amusing. Katarina has started two new things this week. She started giggling. It is the best thing in the world. She hasn't done it very much, and mostly for her dad, but I love it! She still plays with her gym on a daily basis. Her new thing there is that she will hit the things with one hand while she sucks her other thumb. It is great to watch. She really enriches our lives.

I forgot to thank all of you that have created mii characters on our wii. We got the wii fit with our Christmas money and have been working out diligently since we got it. The reason that I thank you guys is because when I am doing my morning run a few of you are bound to show up to cheer me on, and occasionally show me up, and there is nothing like doing aerobics with all your smiling faces up on stage with me. I would show you pictures but we look pretty ridiculous.
You will have to visit so you can try it out.

Peggy wanted me to post this picture so that she can get it. I think that she just wanted everyone to see how cute all of her grand children are. Yes Peggy, we love the picture. :)

The beginning of this week was busy. We said good bye to Ali on Monday. We made homemade spaghetti at my mom's house and took lots of pictures of all of the grand kids. We will miss being able to see Ali and Liam but I am sure they are excited to get back to Hawaii to see Brian, who has been on tour with the Navy since October. The next day we met up with them again so that we could all watch Ross's basketball game. The game didn't look so good at the start but Philomath pulled it together and won a good game. Katarina also started sleeping at night this week. She doesn't sleep through the night but she sleeps at night. Her sleeping during the day is still very sporadic but getting sleep at night makes most things worth it. She is three months old now. Sometimes it feels like time is going so fast. Other times it doesn't. She is very photogenic and I have way too much fun taking pictures of her. I think that I left the cord to down load new pictures at my mom's so I don't have any pictures from the last half of the week. You will just have to wait until next week. We hope you have a great week.

That didn't work. I'll try and fix it later.

Jayme said I needed to do slide show instead. I hope he is happy :)

After about a half hour of work I finally made a collage of the pictures that my dad took the day after Thanksgiving. They weren't aligned as nicely as the collage that Jackie made but it worked. Then I couldn't figure out how to save it and I lost all of it. Finally I found the function that automatically creates a collage. Five minutes later I had this one finished. Most of the pictures are the ones that I posted yesterday but they are a little easier to quantify in this form. I will try and make some collages of the other pictures.

After about a half hour of work I had a beautiful collage of pictures my dad took the day after Thanksgiving. Then I couldn't figure out how to save it. Then I found a function that automatically places the pictures. Five minutes later I have created this collage. Many of the pictures are ones that I posted yesterday but these are easier to look at quickly. I will try to make a couple of more to replace the other pictures I posted.

So, I was talking to Beki on the East Coast yesterday and she wanted to see pictures of Katarina. I still haven't figured out how to do a slide show or a collage so I went ahead and just posted all of them. It is a little unrefined but it works. Enjoy!
