2 months!

Kara is now 2 months old!! Now it seems like time is flying by a little faster, which makes me sad. We still struggle with sleeping at night, but we are slowly working on getting better!!
She had her doctors appointment on Friday and weighed 10 pounds 12 ounces, which is 50%. I was surprised because she spits up so much!! But the doctor didn't seemed worried. She had a good check-up, including shots, which wasn't so fun. But much to my surprise, she is doing really well with them. I have to take her to get some labs done, and I am not looking forward to that. I have never had to have this done, so I'm very nervous!
She is also slowly becoming a more happy, and content baby. She had a hard time adjusting to life in the beginning, but she is getting better. She loves to smile at me, and being held. She is starting to coo, which I had forgotten how much I love listening to that!!

Overall, she is a good baby, and we all love having her with us, especially Grant!!! I can't keep him away from her!!! =)

Hip Hip HORRAY!!!!!!!!

I really wasn't expecting this!!! But she clearly had other plans...
My baby girl is potty trained!!!!!!!!!

Labor Day weekend!

As I mentioned in a previous post, Kara's blessing day fell on Labor day. Which was good in some ways, and not so good because some people already had plans. My family has gone camping in the past, but since everyone has moved away, it has stopped. So this past Labor day, Mark borrowed a camping trailer from a friend and we had my parents trailer down here and they were all able to semi-camp. HA! I am glad that they came down. My kids LOVED having Marcus around to play with!
Megan and Crispin came down Saturday early afternoon. The kids ran, and ran, and ran! They didn't stop until it was time to go to bed.
I am so glad we have land where we can do different things. Saturday night, the men made dutch oven chicken and potatoes. After, we let the kids make s'mores. Oh my, it was a good night!!! I wish they could have stayed longer, but I'm glad they made it at least for one night!!

Kara's Blessing

I've tried sitting down a few times to blog about Kara's blessing. But it ends up being short. I figure, oh well. We had a great weekend, and it was a great to watch Mark bless her. I'm so blessed to be married to a man who is worthy of the preisthood and who also has a strong testimony! Thank you Mark for being so wonderful!!
Pretty sad that these are the few pictures I have of Kara in her blessing dress!! I guess I had better take some more before she out grows the dress... which she may have already done!!
It was nice to have my parents and Megan's family here. It makes me miss the rest of my family, but I am glad they traveled to be here! And I'm also grateful for the Maroney's, who are always supportive and here to help!!
