Note today's cute outfit:And some more cutness in one of her animal bath towels (we have a couple of these and all are adorable!), this photo was taken about two days ago:Today we went to the peadiatritian for her 2 month check up...Katie now weighs 12 pounds and is about 25 inches long. (not yet tall, but long!). And otherwise everything is great and healthy.
Have a great day!

This was the best photo in our session...and the first. Of course, I thought we could do better...but by the last photo, it was clear Katie had had enough:
Lots of love,
Heather and Katie

Our last weekend was great! Auntie Alli and Uncle Shannon were in for a visit....short but lots of fun. Katie cried a bit but also had some nice calm, alert, smiley, sleepy time. We had two dinners and a lovely breakfast together. I think breakfast has to be my absolute favorite meal to share with people. The day is young and the food is yum. A good time was had by all...pictures follow (sorry some are sideways, can't quite figure out why!)

After coffee, we met Andrea for lunch at Boston Pizza. Service was a bit slow but lunch was yummy...Katie napped while we began to eat and woke up for her own lunch. Feeding her in public has gotten easier for all of us and I'm definitely a pro...or so I thought?
We ran into a gal I work(ed) with and her new son. I was so excited to see her that I wasn't really listening when Andrea said "watch out, her shirt..." and I glanced at Katie, who by this time was only wearing a shirt, having had a little mishap with her pants (Wardrobe Malfunction #1...and why we call her Thunderbum"!) and thought her shirt was fine and continued to stand up and greet my friend. It was then that I realized my sister had actually said "watch out, your shirt..." referring to my bright white bra on full display between the "convenient"(if you don't forget about them) nursing flaps of my shirt. My goodness...how embarrasing! (Wardrobe Malrunction #2)
Let's hope mom learns a good lesson...listen carefully to Andrea at all times. =)
Part II of the weekend to come later (Ben had strep throat all weekend making us a tiny bit behind in posting).

As usual we've been busy...errands and shopping as usual. The weather has cooled off thankfully...we're all more comfortable now.
Yesterday Ben and I went to the 40th Anniversary Edmonton Catholic School's All City Band concert. I am an alumnus and my Uncle Frank is the conductor...and has been for the whole 40 years. It was a great concert and a great "date-night". We left Katie at Ken and Cheryl's and they all had a great time..lots of smiles and fun and a Hungry girl when we returned.
Perhaps it was something in the air but our girl slept 6 hours in a row for the first time ever. We're pleased and not expecting it to continue (don't want to get our hopes up).
I was also able to bake a batch of muffins today...Strawberry Banana....a recipe off the web. They're not bad..not a lot flavour but ok. Good way to use strawberrys. Katie says "They taste great!" (just kidding, she IS amazing and advanced for her age, but of course she's not eating solids yet!) (nor does she actually talk) I even had enough energy after that to try a Strollercize class offered at the Kinsmen Sports Centre. It was neat to get out there and a nice challenge. some jogging/walking and strength training. Might be a nice place to meet other moms and playmates.
We'll see if tomorrow's as busy!

This weekend was warm and our little Katie was Hot Stuff too...Both the sunglasses and dress were a gift, and both are really too big but we couldn't resist putting them on her anyway.
