I can't believe it's been over a month since i've blogged.
Shoot, I can't believe it's been 3 months since Katie was born!
She's getting so big, so fast.
I actually love it!
It's great when they're super small and sleep a lot, but she's so much more fun smiling and talking and playing.
A few updates on Katie:
She can roll over! She's been able to roll from her back to her tummy for a few weeks now and does it every chance she gets, though she gets really frustrated afterwards because she can't roll back yet.
She loves to talk, but gets pretty shy about it around other people.
She doesn't really have a routine yet; She just does her own thing, but I don't really mind.
She sleeps when she's tired and eats when she's hungry and I think that's just how she is.
Some babies just don't do well with schedules and whatnot.
Besides, I don't really have a routine for myself, so it kind of works for both of us.
And Yes, i'm getting enough sleep, since everyone asks me.
Katie LOVES to be outdoors and feel the wind and she likes to swim a lot too. :)
My mom has some pictures of Katie in my aunt Kathryn's pool, but she hasn't sent them to me yet.
Katie always does this thing where Brad or I will be holding her and she'll be sleeping, then we'll look down after a few minutes and she'll be wide awake just staring up at us!
It's SO funny!
Katie loves her daddy!
She always falls asleep when he holds her. Haha.
I got this sweet onesie for her to wear to the Kynetx lunches and whatnot. (Kynetx is where Brad works and they have lunches on Fridays where people can come for free lunch and learn about the company and what's new and everything.)
She totally loves her WubbaNub pacifier and I am so glad I bought it.
She's always holding onto the kitty and falling asleep with it.
I just wish the actual pacifier part wasn't one of those green ones because they don't seem to stay in her mouth very well. Maybe she just doesn't like them.
Our little gangster baby.
Back in April, my brother told us about a sale going on at Allegiant Airlines: $19 for a one-way direct flight between Idaho Falls and Los Angeles, so we decided to buy some tickets to fly down to Cali for my birthday, where we could visit with my family and use some free Disney vouchers to go to Disneyland.
We went down last Thursday and went to D-land on Friday, my birthday.
It was lots of fun and not as boring as Brad thought. Haha.
My mom, little sister Marci and her bf Mario when with us, so there was always someone to hold Katie and my mom held her while we went on the more adult-friendly rides.
Katie did love some of the family rides though., the kind where you sit in a boat and look at stuff like Pirates, It's a Small World, Enchanted Tiki Room, etc...
She would just look all around and was so curious!
My mom got her an adorable little Disneyland shirt to wear.
Family picture! (I always look gross as theme parks. Haha!)
Disneyland has been showing the old Michale Jackson 3-D movie, Captain EO, ever since he died, so we went and saw it.
I'd only ever seen the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids show that they've been showing for years, but Captain EO was the one my mom always saw back in the 80's.
Katie in the 3-D glasses. Lol!
All in all, it was a fun trip, but super short.
We didn't get to my parent's house from the airport until Thursday night, spent all day at Disneyland on Friday, did some shopping with my mom on Saturday, and then left super early Sunday morning!
Luckily, my mom flew back up with us because my dad had driven Marci up here for school!
I helped them move Marci into the dorms and my mom helped me organize stuff in our new apartment (blog about the new apt to come tomorrow) on Monday, and them my parents took off on their own adventure!
They went to Yellowstone and Wyoming and Mount Rushmore and all over the place.
I miss em already but hopefully we'll go down there for Thanksgiving.
It's been an amazing 12 weeks with Katie and I love watching her grow more and more each day.
Babies are awesome!
