Kate went swimming (or floating in the water being held by mom or dad) for the first time last weekend!The verdict: I think she liked it! No crying or fussing. Maybe we have a waterbaby on our hands!
(Okay, she looks a little out of it in this picture. Those are some chubby cheeks!)

whirlwind month

I know this blog is totally in need of an update. This month has just been so crazy! We have been out of town 3 out of the past 4 weekends. My house stays clean for about a day each time I tidy up. Someday things will slow down...but not yet. So here's a quick update.

Last weekend we were up in the Metroplex for Josh's cousin's wedding. This was Kate's first wedding and she did great! She stood up in the back with Papa Jack during the ceremony.

I love this dress on her! Here's the family all dressed up! (Kate is getting very tired at this point)

Fell asleep during the reception. Sweet baby.

We got to stay in Arlington with friends for the weekend, so we got to see lots of friends and go to our church again. That was so great.

Two weeks before this (the weekend after my birthday) we were up in Arlington again for a Sip 'n See shower to show Kate off to our friends. It was so fun and since Kate is such a social baby, everything went really well. I don't have many pictures from the shower because someone else was taking pictures for me. I'll post when I get some.

It Happened!

Today someone mistook Kate for a boy.

We were in Hallmark getting Father's Day cards and one of the ladies who works there came over to coo at her. She was wearing her purple striped onsie that says "Sweetie" with a little flower on the chest and ruffly collar. The lady was cooing about "how sweet you are" and how with those blue eyes "you'll be a killer." I thought that was kind of a weird thing to say. Then she looked at me and said "A boy, right?"

Very nicely I said, "No. She's a girl." The lady continued to coo at her and said something about the barber cutting her hair too short. I'm not sure if she meant herself or Kate. We moved on to the cards.

I guess Kate will have to wear pink or flowers or a bow each time she goes out. Fortunately, she does not seem traumatized.
