Katie & The Easter Bunny!

We took Kate to see the Easter Bunny on Thursday. While I could think of a 101 other things to spend $28 dollars on we had to do it...Its tradition. Its funny the pictures I took with my camera came out better then the ones we had to pay for. You can barely see our little peanut in his big fury arms, but sooo cute! Its amazing how excited I am for Easter this year even though Kate is 3 months old and has no idea whats going on. I had fun making her basket and can't wait to dress her up and take her to church and to visit with family. I'm so excited to start making our own memories with Kathryn.

Sorry...It's been so long since my last post!

EEEK!!! I just realized I haven't posted in 11 Days!!! Its been a little crazy here at The Murphy's. I will attempt to catch up to where we are.

I am back to work! Well kind of, I am not back in my classroom yet. I have been working in the baby room which is where Kate is. Before, everyone jumps in and tells me how lucky I am let me tell you I am not! It is very hard to be in the same room as your child, and be expected to take care of 13 other screaming babies. I give the infant teachers a lot of credit its a hard job and I am pretty much miserable. I am trying to stay positive and my boss assures me I am going back to my room. I just hope its soon. I am much better teaching the 4 & 5 year olds. I'm not sure how much more I can take being in Baby Land. For now I am just enjoying being with Kate, and trying not to go CRAZY!! On a more positive note Mike and I were able to finagle our schedules so we are each home with Katie one day a week. I am home on Tuesdays and Mike is home on Fridays. I am very happy with this schedule since I did not want Kathryn in childcare full time.

Kathryn has survived her 1st real cold! With Kate's heart condition we knew her getting a cold could be a bit devasting. She had a pretty bad cold with cough, but came through like a champ. I was terrified that her getting a cold would land us back in Children's...Nope she did great. Mom and Dad are still catching up on the sleep we lost those few nights.

Kathryn has found her voice...we are beginning to hear a lot of coooing and even getting some SMILES!!!! She is an amzing little girl who has certainly made our life complete as well as those around her.

Kate's 2 Month Check Up

Kate had her 2 month old appointment today! She is weighing in at 7lbs 13 oz. The doctor said she is gaining about and ounce a day!!!She is 20.5 inches ( she is actually in the 5th percentile for her length...I'm shocked she even made it on the board) She had to get three shots today. I don't know who cried more me or Katie.:( Doctor is very pleased with how well she is doing. We go back the end of this month for her 3rd and final RSV Vaccine.
Here are just some random pictures of Kate in her car seat. Just to show you that although she may not look like me...she certainly has my temper.
