Hooray for Miss Kate! She has been doing AWESOME on the potty for the last couple of weeks, but this week has had several accident/diaper free days. Today she woke up dry and held it for another hour before we finally remembered to get her to the potty.

Good Job, Kate. We sure are proud of you.

To all my MJ fans out there

Have you see this clip? It's taken from a Larry King episode where they toured Michael Jackson's house after his death. It's kind of freaky, but cool too.

Seeing Kidney Beans

I had my first prenatal appointment this morning. What a relief it is to see that little growing embryo and hear its quick little heartbeat. I also found out that I am only 8 1/2 weeks along (not 9 1/2 like I thought I might be) making my due date March 26th.

Just thought you might like to know. :D

Oh, and until my next post (heaven knows when that will be) enjoy this hilarious clip :

2-year-old moments

Kate turned two in June, and we had her party at my dad's pool again. Here she is blowing out her candles. We practiced singing Happy Birthday and blowing out candles for several weeks prior to her party. Just look at that honed in focus!
Kate got a kitten for her birthday. She loves her "Mittens" dearly, and tortures her daily. :)
In the month of July, Kate's cousin Eli was in town from Ohio and they went on lots of adventures together. This is them at the Dinosaur Park in Ogden.

Kate thoroughly enjoyed the fireworks, and I was lucky enough to get this awesome reaction in a picture. One of Kate's favorite activities is playing in water in the backyard, be it sprinklers, the hose, or this bucket. One day she was wanting to play in the sink while I was doing dishes, so I added dish soap to her bucket. She had the time of her life!

On a recent visit to Orem, we went up to Bridalveil Falls in Provo Canyon. The lighting was absolutely perfect that evening, and I took about a hundred pictures. These two are my favorites! The two loves of my life.
I found out I am pregnant (yay!) a couple of weeks ago, and this weekend we announced it to Mike's family. I printed about 25 pictures that I had taken over the last month or so and put this one at the end. It was so fun to see the delayed reactions as each person read the sign Kate was holding. It was a fun and memorable way to announce.
