Snow Fun!




We got hit with a ton of snow again! 10 inches! I couldn't resist taking Kate out into the Winter Wonderland to get some pictures of her in the snow! She even made a snow angel!

Happy Anniversary to us!! Feb. 16th


Hard to believe that Mike and I have been married 6 years! They have been an amazing 6 years with our share of ups and downs! But through it all we have laughed and loved and cried and taken care of each other. We have a strong marriage that I like to think is pretty unbreakable...after all our years of infertility we came out on top and with a beautiful little girl! I would marry Mike all over again! When we are apart... I feel lonely. When I am waiting to see him I sometimes still get butterflies . It's an amazing love that we have. He is my rock! I am proud to be Mrs. Michael Murphy!



Happy Valentine's Day





Well we spent our Valentine's Day with Kate's heart Doctor...how fitting! She had a follow up appointment with our favorite Dr. Marx! He is very happy with how well Kate is doing. She is now weighing in at 6lbs 13 oz almost gained a pound since we were last in 3 weeks ago!!! Her echo is showing no changes since her last echo...which is great! Her heart is doing what its supposed to. He did up her blood pressure meds (due to her increased weight) He was pleased that she was fighting her 1st little cold very well...still feeding well! He said little Kathryn is still stumping me, but I'm not complaining... we'll see you in a month! Go Kate!!! She is such an amazing little girl!

My 2 Favorite Girls




Long before Kate there was Merrie! Did I mention that I love MERRIE! I always hoped that we would get pregnant quicker so Merrie and our baby would be best buddies. Well I didn't and Merrie will be 6 in March (oh my gosh where does the time go?) So maybe she can teach Kate along the way. She is the sweetest little girl. Mike and I hope that Kate grows up to be as sweet, caring and kind as Meredith. I waited a long time to have a picture of my 2 most favorite girls!


New Mommy Hair Do!



Kate and I went to the salon today so I could get my hair cut! I needed something that was easier to take care of. My hair was soo long and curly and all I ever had time to do was put in a pony... I wanted a more put together look that wouldn't take a lot of time. I also got my eyebrows waxed...(much needed) Best of all... Kate slept through it all.
