Kate's First Haircut

Kate's hair has grown so much over the past few weeks. Her emerging curls have MELTED OUR HEARTS, but she's gotten a little fluffy around the bangs and sideburns. With her first birthday party and Easter not too far away, I wanted to get her hair trimmed and needed someone I could trust. Thankfully Taylor, who works at a salon with my stylist and has a young girl of her own, agreed to give Kate her first hair cut.

I can't believe how well Kate did! She was very alert - she studied Taylor really carefully, but she was nice and still. I'm amazed!

Mom came with me to keep an eye on Luke since I was sitting in the chair with Kate. (Mom also said that if Taylor cut off any of the curls in the back, she would kill her. =| Not kidding, y'all. We take curls quite seriously! :D) Luke was so busy that Mom wasn't able to get a ton of pictures, but at the very least she got a before shot... 

...and an after! 

Sweet Kate is growing up way too quickly!

I'm going to do my best to write this while Kate climbs all over me. :)

Our big project for Christmas 2013 was to convert our office (or, as I affectionately called it, our in-home landfill) into a playroom for the kids. We work best with a deadline and pressure, so once we decided to do this around October, we had many busy weekends!

Luke News

Baby sister gets so many posts that I want to give some props to my favorite boy! 

Luke has had a great few months. Aside from three days where he didn't earn a sticker at school*, he has gotten one every day of the 2013-14 school year!

Spring Break Fun

In a wonderful change of pace from what has been a brutal winter, we had a day with perfect weather. Jackie came up with the idea to visit Casey's Clubhouse, a new park in Grapevine. Behold...

Here's Luke's face as we pulled up to it. 

Kate is 11 Months Old!

I cannot BELIEVE how quickly time flies. I'm sure that's cliche at this point, since I imagine I write that in each post. But I feel like I blinked at the hospital last April, and now we are less than a month away from this little doll turning 1!

Poor little kitty Kate had a double ear infection last week, so we were able to find out that she weighs 21 lbs and 8 oz. She is a healthy girl!
