Trip, school, Karlee, etc.

So Jay finished the semester!!!! It was such a happy day when he took his last final. Right when he finished we got in the car and headed to Boise to spend the weekend with his family. We had a good time there and had fun shopping and going on walks and playing at the park. Karlee did great with her grandparents and aunt. She loved going to the park! Her new favorite thing is the slide. She wanted to go down it over and over. We got her some new clothes and shoes and other things she needed. She has finally grown out of more clothes! We came back on Monday. Then on Tuesday Jay and I celebrated our third anniversary. Wow! Three years already. I can't believe it has already been three years. And it is so amazing to look back and see what has happened and how far we have come in three years. We have been so blessed with so many things, especially our beautiful daughter Karlee. Karlee is a bundle of joy. Speaking of Karlee, here are her new stats... She went to her 15 month appointment on Wednesday and she was 19 lbs 2 oz. in the 4th percentile!!! We are going up! And she was almost 30 inches long in the 29th percentile!!! That seriously is the best weight gain she has ever had. She has been on about a 1/2 pound weight gain a month. I took her in when she was about 13 and a half months and she was 17 lbs. 10 oz. So in about a month and a half she gained about a pound and a half! Wahoooo that is a pound a month! I am so proud! Karlee also has a lot of new words. She loves to say nana for banana and night night whenever she goes down for a nap and for bed. She also says Papa, for my dad now. There are a few more, but you get the point! She is so much fun now. I just can't believe how much she changes and grows all the time. The other day we thought it would be fun to take her to the park to play on the swings. We got to the park and before we got to the playground Karlee fell flat on her face. After screaming and bleeding and more screaming we got her cleaned up and feeling better. Her cheek got pretty torn up, but luckily none of her teeth got hurt. And... she has six teeth coming in right now. So, a lot of this post has been about Karlee, but that is pretty much what our life revolves around now. Jay will be starting back to school again on Tuesday, back to homework and classes and not seeing him much. This week has been very nice to have him home in the evenings and not worry about homework. But, I am so proud of him and for all of his hard work and dedication he has. He works so hard for us and I am so thankful. Me, well I am just staying busy with Karlee. I still go running in the mornings and my goal is to run a half marathon in June. It is only about two months away and I still have a ways to go, but I am determined! I will keep you posted on how that goes. I am getting so excited to be going home to Virginia at the end of the month! I can't wait to see my family and my adorable new niece and go to my cousin's wedding! Sorry there aren't any pictures, I am on our new computer that doesn't have any pictures on it yet. But, I will post some pictures soon!


  1. That's wonderful about Karlee's weight gain!:)

  2. She is getting so big! I can't believe it!! It sounds like she is so fun. I love it. Kiely is getting big, and is a blast as well! Hope everything else in your life is going great! Good luck on the 1/2 marathon! That's awesome! :)
