Fun in the sun!!

Kara had a blast running around at my mom's house. She played in the sprinkler, went for a swing on the swingset with Trevor, and had fun picking up some rocks! Of course Michael was there too, he slept most of the time...perfect weather for napping outside!!

Don't bother me....I'm trying to sleep!!

More Monterey Pics....

More pics from our trip to Monterey! Enjoy!!

Monterey Bay Aquarium

Wayne's mom flew in from Montana to visit us, she hasn't been here since Kara was a week old, so we decided to take a famiy trip to the Aquarium. Kara has never been and we knew she would enjoy seeing all the fish, aka..Nemos and Dory's! We had a blast watching Kara! I think Michael had a great time too, even though he wasn't aware of it.

I love this pic of us!

2 weeks......

Michael is now 2 weeks old and is changing every day. I realized that I had forgotten how much they change during the first weeks and months. We are all so very much in love with him, especially his big sister Kara. She insisted that she lay under his floor gym with him.

This is my favorite picture of them so far....well actually I have many favorites, but this is at the top of the list!!!

All ready for his first baseball game! We went and watched his cousin Trevor's game. I love this outfit, Michael is my little "baseball head" and "baseball butt"! Thank you to Auntie Corinna and family for getting him this outfit!

Mother's Day...

We had a wonderful Mother's Day. The family all met at my house. We were at the park, but got attacked by the automatic sprinklers so we hung out at our house. I got spoiled this year with a new Kodak Digital Camera, a rose topiary plant, and a candle from Kara and Michael. Here are some pics to enjoy, the last 2 of Kara throwing a fit, she didn't really want to take a picture---she was very worn out at this time. I just thought they are too cute!Michael and I, he is sporting his "I love my mommy outfit"
I am a proud mommy!!
Kara right before bedtime....being a tad dramatic but still my little angel!

1 week old....

Well it's been 1 week since we welcomed Michael into the world. It has been a bit of an adjustment but we are all doing great! Kara has been a wonderful big sister. She always wants to hold him and give him lots of kisses. She is more than willing to give him his pacifier, even when he doesn't need or want it, and likes to help burp him. Here are a few photos, taken with my new camera of our 2 wonderful kids!!Big Blue Eyes!!
Sister and Brother
still so cute.....well I think so...
Kara hold Michael all by herself...she is such a BIG girl!!

A Cinco de Mayo baby!!

I had a Dr. appt today and was told that I am dialated to 2 cm and 50% effaced! Which was very exciting news, so as promised my Dr. is planning on inducing me on Saturday, which just happens to be Cinco de Mayo! I can't tell you how excited and anxious I am to finally know that by the end of the weekend I will have a beautiful baby boy! I am a little anxious about leaving my Kara Mae overnight. Yes, it's true, I've never been away from her over night. I know she will be perfectly fine, but I also know I am going to miss her bunches and bunches!!

Well goodbye for now, my next post will be announcing all the wonderful stats of our baby Michael William!!!
