Making Baby Steps

Let's see where do I start....This past weekend my baby sitter has finally graduated from high school. It's so weird!!!!! I"m super duper excited for her though. It's a "new start" sorta speak for her. She is going to be going to the Kansas City Art Institute in the fall. I'm so very proud of her. She one so many awards from the high school this year which was totally amazing! So after Zoe's graduation we went and had lunch at Rio Grande...yum yum yum! Then one of my good friends called and invited me to go see Tim McGraw in concert. So I went and it was a ton of fun! I hadn't been out in quite a while and hadn't been to a concert in a few years. It was a blast!!!! :)

I have successfully completed my first class at Columbia College and passed my psychology course with a B! I'm very very very proud of myself. I just signed up for my next course which ought to be interesting i'm taking Intermediate Algebra...yikes!

Lorelai is doing well she continues to grow! She is all smiles most of the time. She is sitting up extremely well and is working on crawling. It's so funny she can get up on all fours and then starts rocking but just hasn't quite figured out how to get the hands and feet moving! So hopefully we will work on that some more. The doctor gave her the okay start eating real "grown up" food if it's soft and small. We have discovered she loves pasta, vegetables, yogurt, and boy oh boy does she love bananas! She has also discovered the joys of playing in mashed potatoes! She had her fashion show at the kids day last weekend and she looked so stinking cute! I will post some pictures soon!

Wow I'm Really Behind!

Lets see where do we begin. Lorelai had her six month check up last week and she is getting big! She is now 26 inches long and weighs 16 Ibs 11oz. She is in the 60th percentile for height and weight and 25th percentile for head circumference. So that is awesome. She is now sitting up and working on crawling. She can get on all fours and starts to rock but she can't quite get the movement going. Hopefully she will get going pretty soon! I swear she is so stinking smart. She is keeps trying to drink out of a regular cup and plastic water bottle. Which is nuts! Anyhow, this past weekend on Mother's Day Lorelai got dedicated at church. I was very excited about that! Pictures will be posted soon! Easter was fun we went to church twice and then went and had lunch at my mom's with my brother, sister, and my mom. Oh Lorelai is going to be in a fashion show this coming weekend for Children's Orchard family fun day! I'm very excited about that. So I have picked out some cute outfits for her to wear! Everyone is welcome to come out it's a free event held at the Holiday Inn next to the mall on Saturday May 14th!

Nothing too exciting is going on with me. I have been working lately. Things are starting to pick up at the apartments and students are on the hunt for apartments! That has been keeping me busy. I'm getting ready to finish my first class at Columbia College. I have my final on Saturday so that ought to be interesting! Then I get to start a math class...ugh!

That's about all that's new with us McDougals
