We are back to the blogging world and we have so much to talk about! On October 4 at around 6:30 the nurse called and said it was time to come to labor and delivery. By 8:30 I was hooked up to monitors and by 11:30 I was holding ANNIE PERRY in my arms! She is amazing. She looks nothing like Kate and acts nothing like Kate which is SO FUN! It is so fun to have my two girls have their own little personalities.  Annie is very mellow and calm.  She loves to sleep and is an absolute angel in every way! Kate had a couple hard weeks after she was born but now she loves her just as much as Ty and I do and we couldn't imagine life without her!
 Weighing in at 7 lbs 4 ounces and 20 inches long
 She loves the binky!

 Best Friends!

4th of July

For the fourth of July weekend we had a wonderful laid back weekend at Poppy's cabin. Kate was the only kid there but it just meant more attention from her grandparents! :)
Kate rode bikes with her babies and swung in the swing ALL day long!
6 1/2 months
Then on the fourth of July we went to Ty's parent's for a BBQ and fireworks.


I have never been one to LOVE change. As a matter of fact I don't really like change at all. But somethings you just can't stop from changing and one of those things is Kate. She is getting so big right before my eyes. I really can't stand it! Sometimes when I lay in bed at night I get so emotional realizing that my first baby is no longer a baby and that this stage of my life is rapidly coming to an end! Which brings me to another change that I am getting more and more anxious about... we have another little girl coming in less than a month! I really am so excited to meet her but I have literal panic attacks throughout the night trying to figure out how I am really going to love two babies as much as I love my one. I remember when Ty and I saw the positive sign on the pregnancy test saying "this is going to be another Kate" referring to how much she has rocked our world since she entered it. We both really just sat in bewilderment. But I once had a friend tell me something that has always stuck and that is:
Love doesn't divide. Love Multiplies.
Motherhood is such an amazing opportunity and I feel honored to be a mother. I can only imagine the love that our Heavenly Father feels for all of His many children. It is comforting to know that He will be there with me through it all with His unconditional love. So my little friend that has been cooking inside me..... I'm ready when you are!

Dinner Anyone?

Dinner is ready and you've got the cutest chef in town!

Kate's First Dance Recital

This Spring Kate started her first dance class with Miss Julie. It was the highlight of our week! Kate did such a great job and it was so fun to watch her really blossom throughout the months. Miss Julie is so cute with the kids and makes them all feel so beautiful and talented!
In June they had the year end recital with a "Tangled" theme. Kate loves Tangled so she was so excited! Unfortunately the concert pretty much ended up like this but there is always next year right?!
We did get some cute pictures before and after however!
Can't wait to start again in the fall!
