Sleeping Beauty

I got my new camera this morning! I was so excited to try it out on Mary Katherine that I risked waking her up just to get some first snaps. Okay...I don't know anything about the camera yet, and I'm shooting on full auto mode. But just wait...

Spring Blizzard?

The news reports us as having 25-26" of snow (as of this morning) and as you can see in the pictures the drifts are much higher--some of them reaching 9' around our house! CRAZY!! And it's March 28!

7 Months and a Blizzard!!

We celebrated our 7 months with a Blizzard...no, not a DQ Blizzard, but a snow blizzard. And yes, it is March 27. I think MK would have preferred the DQ! Because of the conditions, dad was able to stay home and play with us. The pictures show the highlights of the day. Don't worry, we didn't have MK outside but for a few seconds to take a few pictures. This was about the first form of precipitation that she has seen in her 7 months!

**This is the next morning now and we have 20-25 inches of snow!!!! Snow drifts go all the way to the tops of vehicles and is to halfway up our front door. I've never seen anything like this before! I'll try to get some pictures as soon as Roger is able to get out of the house.

On the move...

This afternoon Mary Katherine decided she didn't need her last nap. I cracked up to what I found when I went to get her! You can somewhat see the wedge that she started out in. To begin with, she was also swaddled! Usually when I go to get her after her nap, she is still in the wedge and wrapped up. You can imagine my surprise when I found her laying the opposite direction with the blanket in disarray. Normally I would have been frustrated that she didn't nap, but I couldn't help but laugh because she was so tickled and looked so darn cute!

6 month pictures

On our way to Tennessee, we took pictures in downtown Tulsa. Kizzy had everything organized and it all went so smoothly. The photographer did an awesome job. I can't pick out which pictures to get. She posted a few on the blog. If you'd like to check out my "urban" baby, click here... http://www.ajavaughtphotoblog.blogspot.com/

I wish you could see them all, because she did a great job!

Teal Family Visit

This week we made the trip to Tennessee to see grandparents and cousins. This was the first time for MK to meet many of these dear ones. They really went out of their way to help us and to hang out with us. Mary Katherine had a great time playing with her cousins and family! At this point, she's the baby of four grandkids. But in a little over a month she will have a new baby cousin, Caroline.

Flying High..(in more ways than one)!

Mary Katherine did really well on her first airplane adventure. We received several comments on how she was a great baby! There were no direct flights, so we had to take a total of four flights. I was so glad when that last plane landed. It's hard work entertaining a 6 month old with not alot of space. She did her happy shriek for the last 30 minutes of our last flight. She was feeling pretty happy. I'm not sure if this was because she had started to get overly tired and silly or if it was due to her first taste (or should I say tastes) of apple juice that I gave her to keep her distracted. I'm certain everyone on the plane thought the shreiking was as cute as I did!

In over our heads in laundry...(and more)

Today we are packing for our big trip to Tennessee. Mary Katherine was helping me with the laundry.
Here we are yesterday, purse in hand, getting ready to head out the door to Grandma's house. (She did this herself.)
Mary Katherine wanted to share my Diet Coke with me!
She was talking away in this picture!
