Katelynn's New BFF!

Uncle Kris was in town last weekend and he and Katelynn became fast friends. They will Skype on the computer every few weeks and I think she remembers that. We have been trying to get her to say Uncle Kris which she will, every once in a while, but refers to Kris as "Uncle". She has no problems saying Uncle Paul, and much to Kris' dismay, says it rather frequently. Oh well, she loves both her Uncles but I think she bonded with Uncle this weekend.

Above, Uncle is teaching Katelynn how to bid on/buy motorcycle parts on eBay. A skill that will come in handy. :)

Uncle had to give Katelynn a lift to the patio on Friday night after they played soccer in the backyard with the big blue ball. Katelynn was just too worn out to make the trek all by herself.

Come back soon Uncle, we already miss you!!!!

DAD Pictures

For Father's Day I decided to give photography a shot and take pics of Katelynn for Brian. I had her hold the letters to spell out Dad and then framed them for B. I thought they would look fabulous on his desk at work!! We went out on thursday and took a few pictures and then tried to find a frame they would fit in. Of course, my favorite pictures were going the wrong direction for the frame and then in all the "good" pictures she was holding a D and couldn't find an A anywhere. But after all was said and done, I think they turned out just great. I mean, have you ever seen a bad picture of Katelynn? I didn't think so. =) After I was feeling a little discouraged I went to Walgreen's to pick up the pictures and they actually asked me for the Copyright release for the pictures. I was flattered that they thought these were professionally taken, but I will give that credit to the Mac computer. There are some really neat effects you can apply to your pictures. I hope everyone had a great Father's Day!!

Baby Girl Bateman

This Saturday Brian took me and Katelynn to Stork Vision for my Mother's Day Gift. He got us a 3D/4D ultrasound. It was so neat to see Tis up on the big screen!! =) K wasn't all that interested, but she wasn't feeling too hot either. Tis did not cooperate all that well, but we did get some good shots of her profile. (She kept her face pressed up against something at all times.) The place was very nice and the people who worked there were super sweet!! They had some of the neatest little baby stuff there. Tutus and onesies, they were all so cute.
Here are a couple of pics of Tis. I think in the second picture she looks like Brian.

Busy Weekend......

We had an incredibly busy weekend again. We had a Birthday Party and celebrated Father's Day early so we were on the run!! Katelynn got to see most of her Aunts and Uncles this weekend. It was my brother's, "Unca Paul", birthday on Friday so we went to a cookout and pool party on Saturday. Katelynn and Brian went swimming and Katelynn loves the water. We ate way too much and got to hang out with Paul, Angela, Josh, Jill and Gina. It was a really good time. After that party we headed to Lolli and Pop's house to celebrate Father's Day since Aunt Julie and Auntie Emm were in town. Once again, ate too much and did some swimming. K was having a bit of rough week, 4 molars and 2 incisors are trying to come in, so K and I left early. Sunday she seemed to be doing better. Nanaw Mickie met us at Toys R Us because she wanted to get K her birthday present, way early. She got her a playhouse but wanted her to be able to play with it over the summer. While we were there, I bought K a Cozy Coupe. She loved the car when we were at Uncle Pauls' birthday party so we/I decided she had to have one. It was like Christmas in June for Miss Katelynn this weekend!!

Katelynn couldn't wait for Brian to get the car put together before she hopped in! She was very excited. She "rode" around in it all night last night and has been in it all day today. (She found a set of Brian's old car keys with the key fob on them. She will hold the fob out the car's side window and click it like she is opening a garage door or something. Silly girl.)
