1/2 a Year

Tomorrow is Kate's 6 month birthday! I can't believe she's half a year old. My-o-my does time fly! At her 6 month appt. Kate weighed in at 14 lbs 9.5 oz and 24 inches (that's 2 feet)! She is starting to sit up,  enjoys rice cereal and squash, and has a lot of fun screeching and squawking.

We are going to celebrate this big birthday high in the sky... Kate and I are flying home to Utah  a bit early to spend some extra time with family before Thanksgiving! Tim will be coming out too but has to stay and finish his classes next week. I'm a little nervous about doing this first airplane ride alone but know it will turn out well. I am so thankful that we can come home this Thanksgiving and be with our families and am so thankful for airplanes that make it possible!


Look close...you can see her teeth
Sitting up...well hunching over anyway...

It's Autumn Time...Well...Not for much longer...

We really enjoyed Iowa's long Fall. The colors were amazing and the temperatures were almost perfect. It's now time to say good-bye to Fall... cause it is supposed to snow tomorrow. I'm not so sure I'm ready for that...

Thought you'd like to see some pics we took while raking up the leaves!

Big Girl Kate

Today was a very big day...Kate had rice cereal for the first time!! And she did awesome! She totally opened her mouth for the spoon and seemed to like it. It's hard to believe she's old enough and will be eating veggies next week. Time really does fly!
Getting ready



I just had to include this one too...I got a slightly better picture of Kate's two little teeth when I was brushing this morning!
