Chill 'n Grill

We had a good time today at War Memorial Park at the Chill 'n Grill. We were able to spend time with good friends and see other people we hadn't seen for awhile. Rhythm 'n Motion dance studio performed and they were great! We also enjoyed seeing Flip Over Gymnastics and a couple of bands perform. Kara slept again for most of everything--it must be the outdoor air! Once Kara woke up she had a good time going down the slide with daddy and sitting on the bouncy space shuttle. :-) It was another really warm day in October!

Kara's new toys

We went to Toys 'R Us today and used the gift card our co-workers gave us for Kara. We purchased the Rainforest Jumperoo (a stationary jumper) and a Boppy. Kara has enjoyed both today! The jumper has three heights, so she will have a lot of fun with it for quite awhile. Right now the boppy is comfortable for her to lay on, but it's also great for tummy time. Plus, it will help keep her safe when she is ready to practice sitting up on her own.

A Good Night's Sleep

Last night Kara was very alert and wide-awake at 10 pm. We were wondering if she would ever settle down to take a bottle so we could put her in her crib for the night. Tim fed her a bottle at 10:15 and she fell asleep eating by 10:30 pm. We were completely thrilled when Kara slept through the night! She didn't wake up until 6:50 am this morning! What a monumental milestone! We praised her all morning long, and hope it's not just a one-night kind of occurrence. :-) Maybe our 12 week old (as of yesterday) is ready to sleep through the night, every night?! The pictures of Kara were taken around 10 pm last night when she was very happy!

Pumpkin Patch!

The four of us went to the Ridgefield Farm pumpkin patch and found some nice pumpkins to decorate our front porch! We will also carve a couple of them closer to Halloween. We had a good time, but it was HOT and humid. It just didn't feel like October 5th is supposed to feel! Unfortunately, Kara was asleep during most of the trip, and wasn't happy about being woken up for pictures. She'll probably enjoy it more next year. Tomorrow is the Chill 'n Grill at War Memorial Park in downtown Martinsburg. There will be dance studios, gymnastics groups, bands, etc...performing at the pavillion. There will also be good food vendors and inflatables. We're looking forward to having fun and spending time with good friends! I'm sure we'll take some pictures while there that we'll post later for everyone to enjoy.

Snuggle, Snuggle

Kara fell asleep on Tim's chest this evening. Doesn't Kara look adorable snuggling with daddy?! We're going to the pumpkin patch tomorrow, and we'll have lots of pictures to share of all the fun things we did!
