I can't believe

June is over! We have stayed busy all month! (Is she not the cutest thing you've ever seen?)
Where have we been?
In Newton visiting my great grandmother...which is Kate's GreatGreatGrandmother!
At Jake's baseball games~ In the pool~Enjoying Sunset on the Square With a Tiger's Blood snowcone And Kate in my favorite baby doll's shirt (literally)! Hiding from bad weather When people kept calling to check on us, we went home. Byhalia had gotten hit by the tornado pretty bad! We almost bought a house on this street (it is hidden behind those fallen trees)! Going to Baby Showers (Jan, please start a blog!!) Lovin being a mama! Watching Kate chat with her Daddy. Matching our clothes! Loving those last few nights of her being in her cradle. Loving my husband for bringing me flowers! Celebrating Father's Day on the beach! (this is what Luke got from my Dad for FD!) (There will be a whole post of beach pictures! Kate was so cute I can hardly stand it!) Enjoying Kate's first plane ride. Attending Amy and Benny's wedding in Leesburg, FL. Seeing friends I wish lived closer.
Going to WICKED!
Whew! I can't believe it is now July! I started back to work tonight, so we will see how much more time I will have to blog!
Miss Thang is really developing her personality! She will sit and talk to Luke forever. It is so sweet! I can hear them in the nursery monitor or in the next room, but as soon as she can see me, she stops! I love that he is so enamored with her, and her with him. She has also rolled over from her stomach to her back and her back to her stomach. She did the stomach to back trick twice last week when she was supposed to be doing tummy time. I, of course, did not see it either time! Also, I have had the video camera ready all week to catch her back to tummy. She would almost get there, but that bottom arm had held her up. On the 4th of July, we were at my parent's and I had given her a bath and my Mom and I were trying our best to get her to roll over. No go. I take her downstairs, lay her on her playmat in front of Jake, and then leave the room. I come back, and she's done it! So after all the work, Jake go to witness it for the first time! I have some cute pics of that too that I'll post later!
There's something like a line of gold thread running through a man's words when he talks to his daughter, and gradually over the years it gets to be long enough for you to pick up in your hands and weave into a cloth that feels like love itself. -John Gregory Brown, Decorations in a Ruined Cemetery

Y'all are some busy parents, that's for sure! Kate is just a doll and seems like such a "good baby!" Soak it in because she'll be one before you know it!

Kate is precious!

I feel your pain on the rolling over issue...the first time Ivy Kate did it was for John when I went to visit a friend for like an hour. I was so mad...I wished he would've just kept quiet about it! :)
