Memorial Day 2010

We have officially moved to Boston. I'll post more on that later, but for now I'll stick to our Memorial Day. Last year we spent Memorial Day in the Labor & Delivery room, waiting for our little girl to be born. Now she's here and we've enjoyed this past year and six days of being her parents (more on her birthday later, too).

This year was quite different. We were moved into our new home enough to be able to take the day off from unpacking to walk along the Freedom Trail. It took much of the day, but it was a fitting was to spend this holiday. There were many historic sites that we took in today: Boston Common, King's Chapel, Paul Revere House, Old North Church, Boston Massacre site, Bunker Hill Monument, and all the rest along the trail. It was great to be able to just follow the red brick trail through the getting lost! I think we walked about 7 miles today, and we got our first light Boston sunbu-hns . It was a fun day and a great way to spend our last day before Braden starts the LGO program.

Kayla hung out with the notorious "Mother Goose" (well, her grave stone).

I rode on and fought against the "Democratic Donkey".

12 Month Appointment

Our Little Miss had her well-baby check-up today. Everyone at the doctor's office couldn't get over how happy she was the whole time. Kayla is just our sweet little girl who makes everyone around her happy.
Here's her newest stats:
Length: 29.5 in. (60th percentile)
Weight: 19 lbs. 3.5 oz. (23rd percentile)

Mother's Day 2010

We took Mother's Day to try brushing Kayla's teeth for the first time. You can tell how much she enjoyed it. I guess we'll keep trying...

I hope all the mothers out there had a great Mother's Day!
