A Tree for Kate

Recently, I think it was in honor of World Day or Environmental Awareness Month or whatever the national day to be really green is, a business in Kerrville was giving away baby trees for people to plant. So we decided to plant one in honor of Kate at Josh's parents' house. She and her tree can grow up together. Haha!
Kate and I helped dig the hole for the tree. (Or maybe we just posed for some pictures)
Josh actually did all the work, like a good daddy. There is Kate's little sapling. I think it's a Mexican Oak. She was very excited about the whole deal, can't you tell?

First Road Trip!

Mother's Day weekend we went on our first road trip with Kate. We drove to Houston to spend the weekend with my parents. You might say that is not really a road trip, traveling from Kerrville to Houston, but when you have a 6 week old in the car, anything over 3 hours is a road trip. =)Kate did great! And she enjoyed visiting her grandparents. She finally got to meet one of her great-grandmothers. My dad's mom lives in Houston too and Kate had not met her yet. We celebrated my mom's birthday and Mother's Day all together. This was my first Mother's Day and my husband and baby (via Josh) gave me wonderful, thoughtful gifts, as did my brother and parents. Josh actually gave me just what I wanted.
Funny side note about the road trip. Traveling from San Antonio to Houston you pass through a few weird sounding towns and a lot of nothingness. My favorite town, which we didn't get to stop at this time because it didn't coincide with feedings for Kate, is Flatonia. I imagine it's pretty descriptive of the town.
Don't worry, big town billboard, we will next time. Oh, we will.

Hold me!

Sweet Kate enjoys being held...She usually likes to look around and bobble her head. But sometimes she just wants to rest against your chest and feel safe and comfy.

Sometimes Sammy wants to be held too...
