What We've Been Up To

Almost a month has passed since I last posted. Lots has happened! I went back to work September 15. I only work part time which is nice. It was a hard adjustment the first week but it's getting easier. I am always so excited to pick her up those days! I have 2 wonderful babysitters which made the transition much easier. They are so good w/ Kate and both have 2 daughters of their own that love on Kate and play with her during the day.

Kyle and I went to Mamma Mia one night in Tulsa and then the next we headed to St. Louis for Kate's longest road trip so far. She did great! She would stay awake a little while after she ate but after that she'd sleep. She slept almost the whole 6 hours! I know not all trips will be this easy but I have to say this one went really well. We had a good time in St. Louis. Kyle's grandparents, aunt, uncles and cousins all live there. His parents and sister and brother and their spouses/kids also came. We took Kate to the zoo. She was a little young but still liked being pushed around in the stroller. Her cousin Mason is 14 months older and he loved it! I can't wait until Kate enjoys it as much as he did. We also went to eat on The Hill, the old Italian neighborhood and to a Cardinals game. We saw Matt Holliday, an Oklahoma native, hit a walk-off home run! We enjoyed seeing everyone and a big thank you to Mike and Susan, Kyle's aunt and uncle, who watched Kate for us during the Cardinals game.

Not much else is going on. We are headed off to OKC/Seminole this weekend for a golf tournament that benefits a scholarship fund in my late cousin Jason's name. He died a few years ago in a head-on collision when he was in his early 20s. Kyle always gets a team together and plays. It will be a fun weekend seeing both sets of parents and our siblings and their families.

P.S. A belated birthday wish goes out to Kate's papa Kent, Kyle's dad. We are celebrating his birthday tonight!

And thank you to my mom and dad for coming to okc to watch Kate while we eat at Deep Fork!

Enjoy the pics. I attempted to take a few pics on our front porch with the fall decorations. She doesn't seem to smile when I have the camera out, but of course she smiles all the time otherwise!

Big black bow-thanks Alisha! Showing how she can hold her head up. She also started rolling over to her back last week.

Happy Fall Ya'll!

Like Daddy, Kate loves watching TV, esp football. This was them and Cash enjoying a lazy Sunday afternoon. Every afternoon is a lazy one if your name is Cash:)

One of the few times she was awake on the trip back from St. Louis

Aunt Rachel loving on Kate. Kate LOVED her scarf. She couldn't quit putting her hands in all the little holes.

Go Cards! Kate's shirt says-My First Cardinals Tee. She doesn't look too happy but since the Cards are in the playoffs she will be wearing the shirt all the time, according to her daddy. Maybe we can get a pic of her a little happier cheering on the cards.

Zoo time-Kate looks excited, huh??
Isn't he adorable? We got to babysit our newphew, Mason, while his parents went to a wedding a few weeks ago.

  1. Hey Meg, I finally learned how to leave comments so now I can do it more often. I love you and miss you and can't believe how big Kate is getting. She is so beautiful. I would love to catch up and will call you soon. We have a lot of transition going on. We are moving to Richardson. Love you and love reading your blog
