From Sea to Shining Sea

During our trip to Oregon over Thanksgiving we took Kathleen to see the Pacific Ocean for the first time. Calvin's home town is only 20 minutes from the coast and our hotel was in Newport Bay. The coast there is rocky, cold and windy. So it was just a quick trip to see and touch the water then run back to the car to get warm. There is a beautiful Yaquina lighthouse on a rock ledge just up the road from where we're at.

Wisdom Teeth

This past Friday I had my wisdom teeth extracted. Both uppers and the left lower. Apparently I was feeling so good with the drugs in the "recovery" area of the dentist office that I thought it was a good idea for Calvin to snap a picture for the blog. Seriously I said, "I look pretty good considering huh? You should take a picture for the blog!" And he did. So here is the lovely picture to prove I was drugged and happy.

My mom and dad so generously came down for Friday and Saturday to help take care of Kathleen. They brought me milkshakes and helped me keep the ice packs on. Sunday was another day of rest with just Kathleen and I hanging out at the apartment. I was back at work on Monday good as new! As my good friend (who also recently had her wisdom teeth extracted) said, "Why didn't we do this when we were 18?".... I don't know, but all is well and I don't have to worry about them any longer.

Happy 6 Months!

Kathleen is 6 months old today. We are having so much fun with her. She is very observent and you can see her thinking very hard about how objects work around her. She loves splashing in the bath tub, playing fetch with Rascal, hanging out with her friends at daycare, and bouncing. Broccoli is her favorite food, and today she had her two bottom teeth break through! Kathleen's laughter fills our home and hearts with joy, and each day we look forward to spending more time with our precious little girl. 
Here are a few of of our recent favorite pictures below: 

She pulled the remote into her own lap here and was waving at Daddy to celebrate her success
