Another video of Kara!

Kara is making all kinds of "talking" sounds in this video while playing with her stuffed animals. It also shows how well she rolls over to get to wherever she wants to go. Today was very warm outside--around 76 degrees. When Kara got home from the babysitter, we changed her into shorts and a t-shirt--which just happen to be size 12 months! Our sweetie is getting chunky, and we love it!

Bathing Beauty!






Kara is all ready for the pool and beach! Just when we think she can't possibly get any cuter--she does! We have reservations for camping in late-April, the 2nd weekend of May, Memorial Day, and over 4th of July. All of the campgrounds have pools or beaches around a lake, so we had to make sure that she was prepared. We'll also be going to the beach in Florida in June. Our sweetie is going to be the best-dressed baby at the pool, or on the beach!

Sisters!



Sorry it's taken so long to post an update. Things have been a little crazy since Easter. Kara has been sick and had to be given breathing treatments with a nebulizer. The good news is that she's all better! No more coughing & wheezing. :-) Kathy has been sick too, and is still trying to get over a sinus infection. We are really looking forward to warmer weather and no more sickness!

We have an exciting trip coming up this Saturday. We are heading back to Oklahoma for the finalization hearing for our adoption of Kara! In so many ways, the past 8 1/2 months have gone by so quickly, and in others we feel like making Kara a 'legal' part of our family is long overdue. Even though the courts haven't seen it the same way we do, Kara has felt like a part of our family from day one. We will be getting together with Kara's birth-family while in Oklahoma, and I'm sure we'll have pictures to post and stories to share when we get back home.
