Tate loves her daddy so much that she decided to dress just like him. Zach found a polo shirt with the same colors as Tate's polo dress, and they were twins that day. They already look so much alike that I thought this picture was so cute. She definitely has her daddy wrapped around her finger!! The other pictures are of her first shopping trip to the Summit with me and her Mee Mee. It was such a pretty day. Tate's little outfit blended right in.


Tate loved putting her feet in the pool. She loves water so far. I think she is going to be a little water bug. We all went to Mee Mee's pool at Ross Bridge and had so much fun!

My mom ("Mee Mee") and I took Tate to the doctor last Friday (Aug. 13) for her check-up. She received 2 shots and the oral rotovirus med. She is so brave. She cried for a minute, then is all smiles again. I thought she may be fussy that day and night b/c of her shots, but she was good as ever all day. She weighed 10lbs and 10 oz. and is 22inches. 50th percentile in height and weight. She is still sleeping through the night, 8 hours!! She smiles and laughs. Not a big fan of "tummy time", but Dr. McCain says she needs more of it. Dr. McCain said she will be eating rice cereal and green beans in 2 mos. I can't wait. Hope to have some videos on here soon! We also met her babysitter, Susan Goodwin. I'm so thankful that our friend Jane referred her to us. She is great with Tate and so sweet. I will actually be able to leave her with Susan and not be worried. My favorite babysitter was Mrs. Judy. I always prayed for a Mrs. Judy for Tate. I think we found one! So thankful for Mrs. Susan!

Tate's first trip to church went great! It was so good getting back in the swing of things. We got there on time, and all things were good. She didn't cry and was all smiles. Having a bottle handy adds to the smooth go. I can't believe she is 2 months old, and I go back to work in 3 weeks. We go meet her babysitter tomorrow, and go to the pediatrician to get her shots. Updates on baby Tate soon!

While the core group girls and I were at Girls Night Out, Mike and Zach kept Tate and Cooper. I came home and saw these sweet little moments. Tate let Cooper sleep in her bed, while she slept in her favorite place, her swing. I know one day they will laugh at these pictures. Mike and Zach did a great job!

RUB A DUB DUB- 8 weeks old today (August 6)

Tate loves getting a bath in her bathtub. It's her relaxing time, ha! She hated when I would give her a bath in the sink, but since Mickey gave us the bathtub, she is a new woman. =) I always wrap her in her "Baby Jesus" towel and sing "Baby Jesus" to her. Mom made up a song when Jarrett and I were babies called, "Baby Jesus". She always and still does call the hooded bath towels, "Baby Jesus" towels. So, I've continued the tradition and Baby Tate loves it. I think she loves it more when her Mee Mee sings it though.
She is 8 weeks old today! God blessed me with an angel baby. Tate has been sleeping through the night (8 hours) for a week. She is drinking 5 oz. of breast milk now, and growing like a weed. Her 2 month Dr. appt. is next Friday. I bet she will weigh more than 10 lbs. now. She has some fat on her thighs now. She still LOVES her swing, and will sleep in it all day if I let her. Tate smiles a lot, coos, and has laughed a little. She is my buddy! I dread going back to work and leaving her.

7 weeks old- Mee Mee and Popsee's home

Mom took some cute pictures of Tate on the swing in their back yard. Mee Mee gave her the quilt that she is on. Such a pretty day!!

MHS CLASS of 2000 10 yr. reunion!!

I can't believe my high school reunion is finally here. It was fun. Not as many people came as I thought, but we all had a good time. I am proud to say that 10 yrs. ago, I imagined myself married with one child. I have to say that I've had 10 great years. Can't wait for many more. I do know now that I wont be planning any more reunions. That is for the birds (as my mom likes to say).
