Sarah Kathryn is 11 months old!

Happy 11 months to our baby girl!  How did you get so big so fast?

Doctor appointment: none this month, but we were there twice last week.  Weight was 21 pounds.  And you were diagnosed with RSV.  We had a breathing treatment, steroid, and an inhaler.  Girl!

Clothes: You wear size 4 diapers.  You are wearing mostly 12-18 month clothes.  I've been putting bows in more and more and you just take them right out.  Ugh!  You look so cute either way.

Eating: You eat a 6 ounce bottle every three hours during the day while you are awake.  You eat fruit/oatmeal in the morning and 2 containers of food in the evening.  You've been trying new foods like blueberries, pasta, bread, and a few other things.  You seem to love baby food. :)  You don't really grasp the sippy cup idea.  We will keep working on it.

Sleeping:  You are getting great naps now. You take a good nap in the morning and a 2 hour nap in the afternoon.  You usually go to bed for the night between 7-8.  We put you in your bed and you cry for 20 seconds and go right to sleep.  We've had a few rough nights lately with you staying up all. night. long.  Poor girl.  The wheezing has been keeping you up at night.

Likes: being held while standing up...this is a sure fire way to get you to stop crying...we just stand up and you stop, riding in the car, riding in the stroller, eating, the paci, splashing during your baths, your brothers, watching people, smiling, knowing what is going on at all times, clapping, and laughing

Dislikes: seeing me walk out of a room, being alone, and being put in your bed

News this month: You are pulling up!  Only to your knees though.  You rarely lock your knees.  Hmmmmm.  I don't think you will be walking by 1 and that is just fine.  I like having you stay a baby for a long time!

Bennett's Spring Fling

We had Bennett's Spring Fling fundraiser last week and it was so much fun.  I didn't know how it would be with having the whole family there, but it was so sweet!  All the kids had so much fun "dancing" (it was really hopping around) and seeing each other after school hours.  They presented the 5th graders, we ate, listened to music, and paid for our auction items.  What a fun party to look forward to while we are at FEMS.  

Sister needed a bottle right when we got there.

My committee is "class projects" on PTA.  We sell art projects made by our kids for $10.  Of course, we had to buy Bennett's bulldog!
Henry woke up the next morning and said "where is my blue star?"

Party pics!

A close up of the picture.

Even Pops and Carolyn joined us for the evening.

Dinner was a taco bar or chicken tenders. kid-friendly!

Last week was a whirlwind!  It's been crazy around here!  

I told Henry to get dressed and he came back in backwards undies, a hat, and mittens.  no words.
Our Sunday school class prepared and served dinner at The Hub, a local ministry for homeless people.  They made chili.
Here are my boys walking this.


I got to have lunch with the Scott/Boyd girls.  Merideth is letting me borrow a bunch of party decor for SK's 1st birthday so we met up.

This sweet thing has RSV.  So sad to hear her wheeze.  Breathing treatment, steroid, and an inhaler will surely do the trick.

Church Pig Roast and Egg hunt

Neil is on the Methodist Men's committee and is in charge of the pig roast.  This is an all night affair for him and a couple other guys.  He loves it and we do, too!
Neil, Trey, and Curt
They added the Easter egg hunt to the pig roast this year. Normally we don't have a very big turn out at the pig roast, but since we had the egg hunt was a HUGE turnout!  They had face painting, jumpies, tons of eggs, and pinatas.  Tons of fun!
I painted Bennett's face!!

Family shot

Jake and Henry were ready for the pinata!

Go, Henry!  I was with Henry and Neil was with Bennett.  I missed all of Bennett's hits.  Apparently he was hitting it REALLY hard!

Fishing at Lickskillet

Bennett filled his entire basket!

Dinner Date

SK is finally getting to the age where I am ready to leave her and the boys at home.  Mama hasn't had 1 night away since her birth!  Mama is tired!

We used to get a weekly date night and now it's just so hard.  It's hard to find someone who will keep all 3 besides my mom.  When she works, there's really no one else.  But, she offered on Friday night and we were beyond thrilled!  I was waiting in the car!

We had a nice dinner at The Cub and then headed to Sam's to purchase all the stuff for the church pig roast.  What a fun date night!

Neil is 34!

Happy birthday to the guy who didn't want anything for his birthday.  I had to sneak this cake in so he wouldn't see.  

Neil wanted nothing for this birthday.  Family kept saying "what are we doing for Neil's birthday?"  "We want to come over for Neil's birthday!"  I think this was all his plan. ha!

This is the only picture I have and Andre' took it!

We ended up going to Trace for brunch with family and his gift was that we didn't take a group picture.  Happy 34th, Neil.  You are the best husband and father a girl could ask for!
