Kate and her Cheerios

Kate loves her cheerios.  All you have to do is place some cheerios in front of her and she becomes enamored with eating them.  She is in her own little world – there is a method to her madness – not sure what it is, but she definitely has a system when it comes to […]

Kate is Walking….!

Kate is only 11 months old…and she is now walking with confidence!  Take a look:

Kate is Crawling!!!

Kate is crawling…I can not think of something more great than watching Kate crawl to something she wants. There is a video below of Kate crawling….take a look! I love her…she means everything in the world to me…I just hope I get to see her more often

Kate is the definition of life ….

Kate is the love of my life.  Yes, she is my daughter and she is an amazing being…but every time I interact with her she teaches me something about life – and that makes everything stop. I don’t get to see Kate that often, but when I do she make life stand still. The last […]

Kate’s Happy Dance

Kate is a very happy baby.  Her every need is attended to by two doting parents instantaneously.  While Mom and Dad fret about spoiling their newborn, Kate loves to show how happy she is with her “Happy Dance”. The happy dance usually occurs in the morning after she has either slept a long time or […]

How Kate Got Her Middle Name…My Aunt Ellen

Kate Ellen is the love of my life (well a close second to Jennifer).  She fills my heart with joy every day and continues to remind me of the person who had a big influence in my life – My Aunt Ellen.  Jennifer and I decided to give Kate the middle name “Ellen” after Aunt […]

Kate’s first nickname: “Inchy”

Jennifer and I love the name Kate.   Kate seems to get more excited with life as the days roll.  Lately, Kate is smiling and laughing a lot more often which make us very happy, but with the smiling and laughing comes Kate’s insistance on not sleeping in her crib unless she is in such a […]

11 Pounds, 12 Ounces & 24 Inches Tall…and her First Shots!

Kate had her two month checkup with the Pediatrician this morning.  Mom and dad have been worried about this visit for a while because we knew Kate would be getting her first shots and were afraid for her! The doctor gave us some Tylenol on the first visit back in November and told us to […]

Happy Birthday Kate – Two Months Old!

Kate turned two months old today!  Jennifer baked some brownies and we used our favorite candle (the “0” candle) to celebrate the event.  Kate had the hiccups from all the fun she had (well – she gets the hiccups all the time, so I am just assuming this time it was because of the fun). […]

Sorry Buckeyes….There’s always next year.

Kate is a huge buckeye fan, just like her parents. She was so excited about the big football game last night, but she could not make it to see the game.  Dad did not make it either – Kate and dad fell asleep on the couch before kick-off. We did not have the heart to […]
