Way to go Nate

...........
Katelyn in her room with 'Pooh'.................Taking a break to ask for 'Fish'

Nate and "Babykins" decided to surprise me a day early and took me out for a fun-filled evening at Applebees and Target. We ate til we were stuffed and played hide-n-go-seek in the aisles at Target. Nate splurged on a Kitchenaid mixer for me so I feel like a real chef now. I even came home from the purchase and made a cake from scratch and icing to boot. Note to self...I should have started with rolls or something I have made before. Nonetheless it was wonderful fun! As a super sweet topping my in-laws present came in the mail. Illustrated scriptures to read to Katelyn (oh alright so I can look at them too), a book of poetry with religious themes, and dinner at my personal favorite Cheesecake Factory (I can't mention the rest because Nate might steal them from me...j/k). Oh and my parents replaced the lost 'masterpiece of plane travel accessories' aka Personal DVD Player we misplaced on the trip to Utah. Katelyn has already claimed it as hers and has changed refering to the TV as Melmo (Elmo) and now says Pooh. Occasionally she has been able to refer to it as Tee.

I think they were pretty sure on the last sono but...I do have another sono in 2 weeks just to check amniotic fluid levels and such. If memory serves me well I think she'll be scrunched up and nearly impossible to tell unless she's in a specific position. She's still feet down right now anyway so...
But thanks for the shout-out. I went for a long walk today cause it's 62 degrees and beautiful sun. Ahhh. If only this could last all year.

Happy Happy Birthday...belated. I am impressed by all the things you accomplished this past year. Way to go! Lucky you, who got a Kitchenaid for her birthday! It's still on my list...someday. Best wishes for your pink bundle of joy next month!
