The Celebration Betty Planned

Ok...these pictures take a long time to upload, so I'm only giving you a few :) Betty was totally in charge here. We did a fire and hotdogs and marshmallows...for lunch we had a toast ("toasts"...after we explained that it was different then the kind with butter and jam lol) and brownies. It was a really fun day.
Look at that pose...is there any question about who is in charge here? There is a lot of attitude for one little girl lol.

It was rather cool out, so Katie got all bundled up. (yes the hat is very big...I planned for a summer baby!)...she was disappointed that she didn't get a marshmallow.

Just some fun pictuers

Katie was in a good mood the other day so I put her in to have some happy floor time. I left the room for a moment and when I came back, Betty had discovered her sister laying there all alone and started reading a book to her. What a sweetie :)

I love this little sleeping pose!

and another...what a little angel baby.

I got a shot of her hair just after being washed...It goes in every direction!

Katie's first bath (1 week old)

Here is our little girl getting ready for her first bath...can you feel the excitement?

There are the two big helpers. They love helping take care of Katie.

In the bath she goes. Can you tell that a bath is nice and relaxing for her?

I love the look on her face. She was so relaxed...even with her sisters yammering on about wanting to help, and having 4 little hands grabing for the rag and washing her.

This one says "Mom, please don't let dad do my hair on a regular basis..." Her just washed hair has so much curl...then it mostly straightens out and will stick out in every direction. I hope she gets to keep her hair!

A side view of her just washed hair and "Look, I have a belly button!" Her cord stump fell of just the day before.

Katie is growing up!

Katie had her 2 week checkup today and is "growing beautifully" according to Dr. H. She is now 9 lb, 6 oz (from 8lb, 8oz...there was a miss read when the did her original weight that was caught when she weighed 8, 6 at 6 hours old) She has been rather fussy, (something I didn't have to deal with much with my other two) so we went over how to deal with colic. He recommended "the Happiest Baby on the Block" which I've heard from other people is very good, too. I think I'll be going and getting it in the next day or two.

After we had finished weighing her and everything, I nursed her while waiting for the doctor and she fell asleep. She breifly woke up when he shined the light at her eyes (cooperative of her, eh?), and then when I put her clothes back on. She then got her first shot (vit. K cause we didn't get it done in the hospital), where she wrinkled her nose and let out one fuss, then back to sleep. Then, we went to get her 2 week PKU done...again, a grump face and single fuss, then back to sleep. lol. And here I was trying to tell the doctor that I have a baby that is kinda fussy.

I know everyone is looking for pictures...I have them on my camera, and as soon as I have 2 hands and my computer I will get them posted. (I can only get them onto the laptop from the camera and Chris took it to work). So...coming up very soon...pics of Katie's first bath, a fishing trip with the girls, some cute outfits Katie was given, making brownies with Aimee and Betty, Dad feeds Katie, Our Celebration, and more.
