Life moves too fast to not enjoy the moments

So in this journey we call life there seems to be a time line that most people follow. Around age 1 you learn to walk, age 4 preschool, 5 is kindergarten, 8 your baptized, 16 you get your license... and so on. Katelyn for some reason doesn't like this plan. Thinks it will take too long. She is 6 1/2 months and already trying to walk. This next video shows her standing on her own. She has done this somewhere between 3-5 times on not only the couch but the entertainment center and attempted it on our shelving unit. Today she was brave enough to try it in the middle of the room with no support. Unfortunately for her (and fortunately for us) she doesn't have her balance down and she promptly fell right over instead of proceeding to walk.

For those not aware, Katelyn has 2 teeth now that she loves to play with. At first we thought these new faces of hers were just her way of exploring these new found daggers in her mouth. But at the end of this video I think you will agree that it is how she shows her frustrations with us (her parents) for not letting her explore more. (Watch the way she looks at Dana at around the 30 sec. mark.)

Life is Insane!

Well pretty much our lives have been crazy lately. Among the 16 hour work days and the 8 hour school days we are still managing to spend time together.

As you can probably figure out, a new semester at school has started. This is my last semester in school!! I'm really excited to get school over with and graduate but it is pretty hard to get up and go each day leaving Katelyn at home. I miss her so much when I am at school. Along with the start of the new semester comes enormous Party sub orders and many more mouths to feed. So Andy has had some long hours this week but hopefully it will slow back down.

Today Katelyn is 6 months today! Crazy. Time has gone by so fast. She has grown up so much! Some of the new things that she has learn to do this month are:
  • crawl, nothing is safe in our house anymore.
  • She loves to splash in the tub
  • She can wave to say hi
  • She loves green beans, squash and peaches so far
