8 Weeks Old-Loving Life
Well Miss K is just a few days over 8 weeks old. It is so fun to watch her grow and learn. She loves sitting in her bouncy seat and looking at the different stuffed animals above her. Paul and I will sing her songs about the animals and her whole face lights up and she smiles really big. She absolutely loves lots of noise and sleeps through just about anything. This past weekend we were at a friends Christmas party with a full house of people and she slept in one of our friends arms the WHOLE time! She also just had a huge breakthrough last night, she slept from 10pm-5:30am. We were both surprised as I woke myself up at 5am looked at the clock, thought I was dreaming, and realized she hadn't woken up to eat once in 7 1/2 hours!!!! Unfortunately it was short lived, as she woke up two times last night. She is also getting used to our crazy schedule and so are we. Paul works two half days from home so I am able to go to work. He has also taken some vacation days so I can finish my teaching semester at USM and do some sub work at Dean College. He is such a great life partner and I am so thankful I didn't ever break up with him(I almost did because I thought he was too good to be true, he obviously is that good!)
On other fronts we are all happy to announce that Paul has finished his master's degree in software engineering. Three plus years in the making and lots of hard work is at an end, with the fantastic reward of a degree.
Thanksgiving was wonderful as well. We had a fantastic meal at Paul's brother and sister-in-laws house. Kathryn slept in the sling during dinner and then was passed around from family member to family member, she loved it. The next day we spent visiting with Paul's parents and enjoyed relaxing by the fire and visiting with the two of them. We are so blessed to have them in our lives. That weekend we also had a great visit with our friends, Kev and Jamie Coleman, who also live in NH. We were so excited to celebrate with them the upcoming arrival of their baby in May(another playmate for Kathryn.)
