I realized I haven't posted any recent pictures so I thought I should take advantage while Sarah is napping. Things are going well here. We are settling in and adjusting to our new family/life. This past weekend was the first weekend where it was just the 5 of us. We had a great weekend and actually got out quite a bit.

Saturday morning, Jim took the boys to a North Texas football scrimmage game in Denton. Meanwhile, Sarah and I got to sleep in a little bit and then made our first outing to Target. It took us awhile. I had to feed her in the car before we went in but then she slept the entire time which was the goal. I spent over an hour in Target. I could tell it had been awhile since I had been out! :) Somehow, I forgot to take a picture of our outing but it was a good one!

Later that afternoon, we headed out all together to get the boys some new shoes for school. Jacob starts Monday, Aug 30 and Luke starts Wednesday, Sept 1. We ran a few more errands and then grabbed dinner out. Let's just say, it was quite the outing and we were pooped once we got home. Sunday, for the first time Sarah and I joined the boys for Mass. It was great to be back. We sat in the back, hoping to avoid as many people/germs as we could. Luckily Sarah slept the entire time and I kept her covered up in the stroller so hopefully we minimized the germ exposure. Yes, I have turned into quite the germaphobe since having kids! :)

At Sarah's 2 week well check, the doctor said we could do tummy time since her cord had fallen off. My initial thought was 2 weeks seems a little early to be doing tummy time but I'm no doctor. So, here is Sarah's first time on her tummy. Needless to say, we haven't done it since! ha!

Resting those neck muscles

The boys loved watching her in her new activity.

She has some good awake time in the morning. Here she is all stretched out on the boppy!

The boys keeping themselves entertained

Fast asleep in her chair

There is nothing more angelic than a sleeping baby

Go KU!


  1. She is so sweet! I'm impressed with all of your outings! Way to go. I bet it felt good to go to Target. Nothing like going there and loading up to make you feel better!!! The boys seem to be handling their new little sister like pros. :-)

  2. You go girl! I'm impressed with your outings, too. There's not a chance that I was up for that at this stage in the game.

    The boys seem to be taking to Sarah quite nicely - looks like they enjoy having a little sister around. Better enjoy it now before she starts getting into their stuff, huh?

    She's cute as a bug in a rug. It's killing me not to be there to see all of you...

  3. Ok seriously - she is a REALLY pretty baby!!! I can't believe how sweet she is! I love that pic of Jacob kissing her hand - precious brothers!

    I'm so anxious to get there and give you all hugs and kisses! So proud of how well you are all doing! Love you sister!

  4. Katherine, she is just so precious! Those photos make me just want to hug her up... and smell that baby smell! Ahhhh... The guys are stepping up to the big brother roles watching over her! Sweet. Sweet. Sweet.
